Hot High Line

This past Tuesday, I took the day off from work for an extended Memorial Day holiday. Jim and I spent the day in Manhattan visiting the High Line extension in Chelsea, and then doing some gallery hopping in the area. It’s safe to say we were both pretty “arted-out” after the weekend was over.

It was ridiculously hot out, so I decided to try out an outfit similar to my Memorial Day Inspiration board and go with a breezy leopard blouse, shorts and wedges. I seem to be gravitating towards blouses and shorts a lot this season.

Stay tuned for posts on both our High Line adventure as well as our gallery hopping in the next day or so!

Airport Again

Waiting for my Flight{Scarf: Gifted; Blouse: H&M (thrifted); Jeans: Mavi; Loafers: Delia’s}

Today I’m traveling yet again. I’m attending a business conference in Annapolis, Maryland and will be there today through Friday. I’m hoping to get some photos while there (both of what we’re doing, as well as outfits) but don’t hold me to it, it is a business trip after all.

Not a Dress 1{Blouse: Forever 21; Skirt: Thrifted; Belt: H&M; Flats: Steve Madden (thrifted)}

I am so far behind at work right now it’s not even funny. It’s been a super busy week on top of it, with commitments after work the entire week. My stress level is through the roof, considering I’m trying to tie up a bunch of loose ends on both the work and home fronts prior to leaving for vacation next week.

I had grand plans to put together a post today of what we did on Labor Day (We went sailing… in Brooklyn! Fo’ real!), but for now it’ll have to wait until tomorrow evening most likely because I’m too pressed for time on this lunch break and there’s like, a kazillion photos I took for that post that need to be processed. In the meantime you’ll have to settle for this outfit I wore last week to go out for after-work cocktails with Nikki.

Not a Dress 2

I’m taking some time off from my stress this evening to enjoy some Fashion Night Out events.  I’ll for sure be attending the event at MooShoes, so if you’re there be sure to say hi!

Army Business

{Tee: Unknown Costco brand; Skirt: Michael Kors (thrifted); Heels: Mossimo for Target (thrifted); Necklace: Stylemint}

I found this Michael Kors pencil skirt during a thrifting excursion last year and when I spotted it, I knew I had to have it. The thing fits me like a glove, and only cost me $12! Plus I absolutely love how it adds a slight military edge to any work appropriate outfit I put together. I’ve worn this skirt to many a business meeting and conference and it always seems appropriate, yet slightly edgy. It’s one of my favorite pieces and one I don’t see myself letting go of soon.

Have a dress you’re kinda “meh” about?  Put a vest on it!  Or a bird, if you’re from Portlandia.
