A Night Out

{Jacket: Anine Bing; Dress: Suno; Heels: Aquazurra; Glasses: MICHAEL Michael Kors}


I had been on the hunt for a supple, versatile and just plain chic leather jacket for quite some time - something I could wear both to work for a little edge and to play for a little refinement.  I think I drove my mom crazy with the number of jackets I would try on, put on hold, try on and put on hold.  The rough and tumble moto jackets never seemed to suit me - I thought I looked silly, trying to look like something I was not.  I found this gorgeous one on ShopBop during their 30% off sale - the quilting and the fitted style is what made me place the order.  The stitching and trying it on is what made me want to never take it off.  You will see it popping up in my outfits quite a bit as it brings just that extra amount of oomph my looks need.

Comfy Cozy Casual

{Poncho: Anthro; Jeans: Anthro (on sale!); Heels: Anthro:
Shirt: J.Crew (similar); Bag: Joie}

Here's an easy outfit for a day of shopping and gabbing with a dear friend.  I can do dressing up easily, but casual is not something I can put together quite as quickly.  And sometimes casual is all I want when having one of those days, but to still look put together.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Dressed Up Plaid for Work

{Shirt: Anthropologie (similar); Skirt: Alice & Olivia (last seen here);
Heels: J. Crew (sold out but also like this one); Necklace: Sonia Boyadjian;
Bag: Balenciaga}

A good piece of jewelry can add just the right amount of oomph to an otherwise basic look.  The beautiful piece I'm wearing here is designed and handcrafted by the lovely Sonia Boyadjian.  I was lucky enough to visit Sonia's studio to pick up this piece and to see where she works.  Her creative space reminded me of Ariel's treasure trove in The Little Mermaid - all these trinkets and baubles that she transforms into whimsical and unique pieces of jewelry.  If you're an enthusiast for statement accents, then Sonia's collections are a wonderful place to indulge.
