I can’t stop wearing my Opening Ceremony jacket with everything!  Super warm and looks great thrown over anything.  Decided to dress it up a little bit with this chain belt and a lot of black.

Breaking Black

breaking black2 breaking black1 breaking blackBreaking up my usual all black with some purple. I’ve noticed that leather leggings are a great alternative for tights during the cold winter so these are practically a necessity to me right now. I find myself reaching for them often and now that I started layering them with slips and dresses, we’re practically inseparable. Best investment ever I think.

Enjoying a leisure breakfast a couple weeks back.  It’s so nice to be able to enjoy a late breakfast on a random weekday.  Wish I had more of these mornings. 🙂

I just got some new boots and so crazy about the tiny fleur de lis detail on it!!

Geeky Plaid

geekplaid4 geekplaid geekplaid1 geekplaid2 geekplaid3Short sleeved button ups always reminds me of the tv show Chuck, a guilty pleasure of mine. The main character is always in his working uniform which consists of the short sleeve button down and some chucks. So geeky cute. I went without the chucks for my outfit but will have to contemplate doing it with chucks in the future.

These short sleeves are such a life saver during the summer. No need to fumble with rolling up sleeves perfectly, Jcrew style. Although when I do see a person donning an elegant silk shirt with perfectly rolled up sleeves, I immediately feel a bit clumsy with my shorter sleeves. But problem easily solved by rolling up my short sleeve to look a bit more undone. Win win! 🙂

P.S. I actually had these sleeves rolled up to show the cute hints of chambray used for the hemming but they slumped back down in the process of taking off my jacket. Fail! Which seriously makes me wonder..how do these rolled up short sleeves stay so perfectly rolled up? I’m starting to suspect some double tape action going on!

Off Duty

Had such fun yesterday having lunch and drinks all day with a coworker.  Best hump day wednesday in a while!

P.S. I’m sure you guys all know but wearing leather shorts out in the sun, even while shaded under a huge umbrella, sucks big time!  Never again…

P.P.S. On the other hand, wearing a shirt that’s practically weightless and feels nonexistent on my skin is a huge plus.
