Structured Sparkle

Blazer: Urban Outfitters
Top + Necklace: J.Crew
Jeans: Levi's
Shoes: Nine West

I spent the weekend shopping and bee-lined it into J.Crew to check out the additional 30% off sale. I immediately picked up this sequined top for less than $30! I wanted to pair it with my black leather moto jacket, but while sifting through my closet this morning, my structured cropped blazer caught my eye. I've never styled this outfit before, but it works for me!

Pink Suede Shoes

I like to wear the plainest of things and add that extra pop of color for some effect. Today, I decided to stick to the neutrals and wear my hot pink shoes from H&M. I acquired them on a trip to Washington DC, and even though I wear them quite often, they have finally made their debut on this blog. My weekend plans include some running (have to gear up for that half marathon!), a night at the movies, dinner and wine night with a friend, and trying out some ethnic foods. Have a great weekend!

Field of Dreams

After posting yesterday's entry regarding those safari-esque shorts, I was on a hunt for them to wear to work today when I came across my brown slouchy shorts from H&M. Score. I knew I wanted to wear my huge J. Crew necklace, and found the perfect lightweight striped top to pair it with. I love it when I find clothes that I forgot I owned! This is getting to be a problem...

Welcome to the Jungle

During my lunch break, I was chatting with a friend and noticed a sea fedoras and straw hats passing us. It made me realize that my gray fedora that I purchased from Urban Outfitters over a year ago (as seen here) hasn't been worn in a while. I  styled a look below based on the outfit similar to the post mentioned above, and decided to have a different, more bright, colorful spin on it.

Hot City

The weather has just been gorgeous and I can't even remember the last time I wore a dress sans jacket. It's days like this that make my work days go by faster, even though I am tempted to just take the day off and bask in the warm, inviting sun.

This past weekend was super busy, and after all that driving up and down the Peninsula, it has finally died down. On Saturday, we attended my friend's wedding in Walnut Creek at Heather Farm's Park, and it was the perfect day. The weather was amazing, and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I wore a light pink, one shoulder dress with sky high (5 inches to be exact) nude patent leather pumps. Not the most comfortable shoes, but sometimes you need to make sacrifices! Congratulations to the newlyweds-Jessica and Chad!

I was perusing my blog and saw that I had purchased this skirt over two years ago, and realized that I haven't worn it in a while. I decided to give it a go today at work and dressed it up a bit with a blazer. I do wish I added a bit more color, but I was in a rush this morning, and didn't have the time to sift through my closet. However, I can't wait to experiment with this look and perhaps mix patterns with this outfit.

I purchased this dress from Forever 21 in Hawaii. I love the billowy silhouette and it's perfect for the sunny SF weather. I've been on a dress craze lately and hope that I get the chance to wear them all before the weather decides to turn.

I have always loved a good clutch--the larger the better. After looking at yesterday's post on Atlantic Pacific, I was inspired to do a trend board of some vibrant clutches. My favorite look is pairing it with the simplest outfit to add that extra pop. Now you're ready for the day!

3 Looks, Pink Shorts

While I had a lot of down time in Hawaii, you can bet that I was at Forever 21 and ended up buying 3 dresses, a pair of shorts, and 2 necklaces for a mere $80! One of the shorts I bought was pink, of course. I paired it with a flowy white top and my favorite (and almost destroyed) wedges from Nordstrom (top left, pictured below). I am so obsessed with colored denim that I decided to do another post featuring just that. I decided to style my pink shorts with three different wedges, and three different white tops. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
