Striped Skirt

Summer Striped Pencil Skirt

These days, a-lines dominate my wardrobe, but there was a time in my life when pencil skirts commanded their fair share of closet real estate.  This was especially true while working in conservative offices, where black, gray and navy reigned supreme.  I’m in a more creative environment now, but I still have a soft spot for the classic cut.  Just serve it up with a side of summery stripes and the pencil skirt will always have a place in my heart.

Outfit Planning: Weekend Trip

What to Wear on a Weekend Tripfloral dress | white dress | romper | sunglasses | wedges | bracelet | cuff | bag

This weekend, I’m headed on quick trip upstate for the boyfriend’s family reunion.  I’m talking a six-hour drive on Saturday morning and back to the city by Sunday night.  It’s a lot of travel for such a short stay so a carefully curated weekender wardrobe is a must … which is easier said than done for a serial overpacker like me.  This time around, I’m counting on one-piece outfits like a floral dress or a striped romper.  They’ll take up minimal space in my weekender bag and should cover the range of weekend plans.  I’m keeping the accessories to a minimum with a cute cuff or two and a pair of comfortable wedges and I’ll BRB!  Happy weekend loves!

Currently Craving: Black & White

Black and White Summer Essentials

It looks like New York might finally be rubbing off on me.  This summer, I’ve been gravitating toward more neutrals than neons.  I’m especially loving the high contrast between black and white.  I know it’s not earth-shattering, but in a season full of brights and bolds, it’s refreshing to tune out the noise and keep things simple and sharp.  I recently picked up this black and white striped dress and have my eye on these crocodile print shorts.  What monochromatic pieces are you currently craving?
