I Heart Kate Spade


{Dress: Kate Spade Gable dress (on sale!); Bag: Kate Spade Kennedy;
Heels: NastyGal; Belt: Bebe}







I never thought I would become such a fan of Kate Spade, but how can I resist the collections of girly, shapely, perfectly stylish, well constructed and always going on sale dresses that Kate Spade has been releasing.  I really appreciate the tailoring and the details and know that I'll be wearing these pieces for a long time.  As I've said before, I see no need for my work clothes to be boring and plain.  For me, my outfit is an extension of myself, and I feel much more confident when I'm put together.  Absurdly, I actually feel stressed if I'm not.

Pretty Tiled Topshop Co-ord

Happy Summer!

One of my most favorite fashion trends, as you may have noticed, has been the crop top and the midi skirt.  You can imagine my excitement when I found this colorful, yet chic, coordinated look at Topshop (and for only $138!).  I love the repeating tile pattern anchored by the aubergine border.  I made the skirt appropriate for work by wearing it with a solid colored top, and then changed into the crop top for dinner at Tar & Roses (a must try if you live or are visiting LA).  And with the warm nights we've been having, I didn't even need a coverup.

Oh, how much I love summer in SoCal.

Ladylike and Floral for Work


{Jacket: Zara; Top: Warehouse: Skirt: H&M (last seen here); Necklace: Sonia Boyajian;
Heels: Miu Miu; Clutch: Clare V.}








Happy Friday! Here's a fun and fresh look for work, especially for those days when you're cooped up inside and can't enjoy a beautiful, sunny day.  I am very prone to buying new work clothes when I start to get bored with what I have in my closet, but, for obvious reasons, this isn't very economical.  I'm trying to make more of an effort to reimagine the items  in my closet and make them work for work and for play :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday, dear readers!  We're going up to Big Bear for the weekend to celebrate my brother's birthday.  I'm looking forward to soaking up the sun and partying with some of the coolest people around. 

Here's to a chic, fun and fabulous weekend!
