Simply Studded

top: Zara. skirt: Juicy Couture. shoes: Me Too. bag: Louis Vuitton "Alma" in Noir Electric. jewels: Michael Kors, David Yurman, Tory Burch, J.Crew (similar). sunnies: Tory Burch (old). nails: Orly "melt your popsicle". lips: Revlon "siren". 

I love the simplicity of this outfit. The studded collar adds enough detail to keep it from being boring and gives it a sense of glamour that lets it easily transition from day to night.

I love all of the possibilities this top brings and can't wait to style it in different ways! And even though these jeans look white in some of the pictures, I promise they are actually pink :)

Casual Friday

top, jacket, and jeans: J. Crew (here, here, and here - I ripped additional holes in my jeans). shoes: Me Too. bag: J.

My office environment is casual every day (perks of working for a small company!!) but it's nice to be able to throw on jean and a top, dress it up with a few accessories, and head out the door on a Friday morning. 
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!

Sweet Mary Janes

top: J. Crew. skirt: ASOS. shoes: Kristin Davis (picked up years ago but similar here). scarf: Zara (old but loving this one too). bag: vintage Coach (recently put back into production here!). sunnies: Karen Walker. jewels: Michael Kors watch, David Yurman, Tory Burch, J. Crew, H&M.

Today I figured out how to use the self timer on my camera :) ....apologies if the pictures are not quite as pretty (or in focus) as usual....

I'm loving Mary Jane heels--again! I picked these up years ago in college and haven't worn them since about 2008 (mostly because they have been hiding in the back of my closet). Luckily I uncovered them while I was doing some spring cleaning and have been putting them to good use ever since!

The Girl in the Yellow Dress

dress: J. Crew (no longer available but similar here). bag: TJ Maxx. belt: J. Crew Factory. shoes: J. Crew. sunnies: Karen Walker. jewels: Michael Kors watch, David Yurman, J. Crew, Forever 21. nails: Essie "adore-a-ball"

This past Saturday was my cousin's wedding, it was a wonderful celebration of love, family and friends (the backdrop in these pictures was the backdrop for the ceremony). She was absolutely beautiful and and since she was the first of us grandkids to get married, it made it even more special! But, I didn't know any of their friends, and they didn't know me. Trying to remember names proved to be a difficult task for all parties involved, so I was quickly dubbed "the girl in the yellow dress". As far as nick-names go, I suppose it could've been a lot worse :)

I hope you're having a fabulous Tuesday!

Pixy Stix

tops: J. Crew Factory (now on sale!!). skirt: Zara (last year but similar here) belt: J. Crew (old). shoes: Jeffrey Campbell (unfortunately sold out in nude) bag: J. Crew. sunnies: Karen Walker jewels: Michael Kors, Tory Burch, David Yurman, J. Crew. lips: Revlon "temptress".

To explain the title-one of my best friends/traveling buddy/rockstar photographer (CB) dubbed this shirt my "Pixy Stix" top...and the name kind of stuck. :)
There are so many exciting things I want to share about this outfit...namely my Karen Walker sunglasses that FINALLY came in! And the fact that an incredibly sweet woman stopped me in the middle of shooting this outfit to tell me that not only did she love my outfit, but she thought I looked like Blair Eadie (which I took as an amazing compliment because I adore her blog!) and wanted to take a picture with me. I was so honored! I never did catch her name, but I want to thank her because she absolutely made my day!
