Hey Shortie

Sweater: JCrew, Shorts: JCrew, Jacket: Gap, Bangle: Alexis Bittar, Sunglasses: Joe Fresh, Flats: JCrew, Earrings: Banana Republic

I just can’t stay away from stripes, and from the past few posts , it seems I also have an issue with brights. And looky here, I paired both stripes and brights together for work the other day (yes, I can wear shorts to work, yes be jealous).

This sweater has been the best all-time buy from J.Crew. It’s season-less style goes with everything from beat-up jeans to fluoro coral shorts. It’s that one piece that I always turn too when I have less than 10 minutes to get ready— the stripes are kind of a distraction technique for for messy hair and wrinkled jeans. You heard it here first.

Shake your Bootie

Dress: Banana Republic, Tights: Loft, Booties: Steve Madden, Necklace: Pyrrha Clutch: Gap (circa 2001) Ring: Paola Hernandez

I have turned a corner on booties (not the one behind you) the short boot that has become the “it” shoe. Ankle booties have come and gone and for years I hated them, but lo and behold on their latest return trip I’ve changed my anti-ankle boot ways and become a fan (and learned a very good lesson about saying “I’ll never wear those!”).

I should have taken a better picture of my ring but this is one of my all-time favourite pieces of jewellery. I bought it Mexico City, one of my favourite stops on our driving trip to Argentina, from a wonderful friend of ours who was working for the designer at the time. I used to wear different rings all the time but these days I usually only wear my wedding bands plus my engagement ring, which sits on my right hand, long story but basically it means I don’t switch rings very often but when I do it is always to wear this one.

Side note: Check out that hair. Real beachy waves. I have been testing a new curling iron that comes with a protective glove to protect your hand! The risk of burning might be worth curls like this. (I’ll be covering the curling iron for Vitamin Daily so stay tuned!)
