My Daily Outfits – Yellow and Stripes

Where: Work
Top: Banana Republic
Skirt: The Limited
Shoes: Banana Republic

Today was the continuation of my Sales Conference so I decided to stick to business casual. I love yellow and blue combinations and it’s probably one of the last times I’ll be wearing this skirt before it gets retired till next Summer.

My Daily Outfits – Office Denim

Where: Work
Tshirt: JCrew
Blazer: H&M
Jeans: AG
Shoes: BR Mad Men Collection (click here to purchase)

I hope everyone on the East Coast made it thru Hurrican Irene. By the time it got to NJ it was downgraded to a Tropical Storm, we barely felt it, but there were still lots of flooding in some parts of NJ.

As you can see I’m still using Frank’s camera and still can’t figure out the correct settings. I’m sure that by the time I figure it out, I will have my camera back…that’s just how things work 🙂

Today is the beginning of our sales conference. I have a full day of conferences followed up by happy hour event so I decided to wear jeans. A rule to follow for office denim is they must be dark, no stone wash or color jeans and throw a blazer on top to pull the look together.

My Daily Outfits – Copy cat

Where: Out with Friends
Top: Simply Audrey (click here to purchase)
Skirt: Zara
Shoes: OFF 5th
Bag: H&M

I used to look at fashion magazines and runways for inspiration until I discovered the amazing world of fashion bloggers. These are every day girls expressing their style and creating wearable looks. One of my favorite bloggers is Anh from 9to5 Chic, she has an unbelievable sense of style. I love her style so much that I couldn’t help myself and copy an outfit from one of her posts, I even went out and bought the same shirt!

My Daily Outfits – Army Green

Where: Work
Top: Aqua
Skirt: Banana Republic
Shoes: Cole Haan
Necklace: JCrew

Yikes, sorry for the blurry picture! I’m still using Frank’s camera because I’ve been too lazy to walk 8 blocks to pick up mine at my friend’s house. I don’t know what my deal is but I just hate to walk. Don’t get me wrong, I’m in the gym 4-5 times a week, spin about 3 times a week and even have a trainer, but I just HATE walking. Funny enough, someone from college rememebered me as the “girl that drove everywhere”, mind you, I went to a school that had a bus system and didn’t allow freshmen to have cars…somehow I figured out how to bend that rule  🙂

Now about the outfit.  I was planning on wearing this top with a striped skirt (seen here), but I thought it may be a bit too casual for my office…maybe a casual Friday.  Also, I would have paired it with tan shoes, and NYC is about to get a big storm and I’ve ruined way too many tan shoes in the rain.  I needed to find something that I could wear with black shoes, so I came up with this.  Have a great day!

My Daily Outfits – Lounging Around

Where: Working from home
Top: Old Navy
Necklace: Shop in Greenport
Watch: Michelle
Skirt: Forever 21

As much as I LOVE long skirts and dresses, I only wear them at night or on days when the temperature is below 75 degrees…it’s just too hot! This skirt was an absolute fabulous find. It’s light and flowy, it keeps you cool even though it’s long. I love throwing it on with a tank top and calling it a day!

My Daily Outfits – Office Style

Where: Work
Shirt and necklace: JCrew
Skirt: Banana Republic
Shoes: Cole Haan

Hey! I’m back! Sorry for being MIA. I left my camera at a friend’s house on Thursday and I still haven’t been able to get it back. I’m using Frank’s camera, which I haven’t used in a long time so I was having some issues with the flash (hence the blurriness….sorry!) But now that I’m back, let’s talk about the outfit. I’ve formed a new obsession with JCrew’s office attire and jewelry…yes, I know, where have I been? This shirt is so crisp and comfortable, I just love it. This neckalce is just so beautiful, I just couldn’t let it sit there and not purchase it. Keep an eye out for more JCrew pieces coming up!

My Daily Outfits – Color color and more color

Where: Dinner with a friend
Dress: Boutique in Greenport, NY
Sweater: H&M
Belt: Forever 21
Shoes: Banana Republic
Earings: Stella & Dot

I immediately fell in love with this print. I think that I was mostly attracted by the coral in the print, as you all know this is my favorite color 🙂 I just realized these are dark tan shoes and almost match my legs….yikes. Don’t worry, I use SPF 50 when laying out 🙂

My Daily Outfits – Red Jeans

Where: Dinner with friends
Top: Boutique in Greenport, NY
Jeans: Zara
Shoes: Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH
Necklace: Banana Republic
Earings: Stella and Dot
Ring: Banana Republic
Bracelets: Old Navy and Target
Watch: Michael Kors

As many of you know, I’m a pretty conservative dresser even when trying out a new trend. This is my interpretation on “mixing patterns”. I figured I couldn’t go wrong if I kept the paterns in the same color family…baby steps! Also, I’m trying to incorporate more jewelry into my wardrobe. Keep an eye out for my recent DIY project for jewelry storage.

My Daily Outfits – Wedding Guest

Where: Wedding in LI
Dress: Asos
Necklace: Express
Clutch: Pree Brulee
Watch: Michael Kors
Ring: Banana Republic
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

This look was inspired by the lovely Linzy from Sparkling Footsteps. I recently purchased this dress from Asos for only $26 (now on sale for $17!) so I decided to take her advice and add some bright and sparlking accesories. The best part was that the dress, clutch and necklace were under $100!
