Back to Black

This week I'm gearing up for Sunday's Oscar party! The colors are black and gold and I thought I'd kick off the week in a skirt (I know, ANOTHER one!) I'm trying to overcome my skirt aversion first attempted with last week's Chambord hued beauty. I know I mentioned incorporating more color into my daily wears and today I failed. Big time. Ah well, all in trying to keep with the theme.

I had such a fun Saturday with my cousin and her roommate. We ventured out to The Grove for people watching, had lunch at Golden State, played board games in the evening, and picked up a few things at Trader Joe's for homemade pizza and ice cream. I hope I'll be seeing more of Stephanie around these parts.

Happy Presidents' Day for those of you with the day off, and Happy Monday to my comrades in their office chairs.

  1. Cute! I love your boots :)

  2. Great skirt and boots!!
    One question: when blazer shopping, should I even concern myself with whether or not it will be able to button in the front? Or just how it looks hanging open?
    Working on my professional attire...

    1. Oooh, good question. I like blazers to "just" button, if you know what I mean. I'm partial to fitted, verging on too small blazers, but in a more professional environment you may want them a little roomier to close over a button down.

    2. For some reason I can't leave a comment so I'm just replying here - love this cute combo - it looks so chic and put together :)

  3. i love that skirt. the print is simply cool. u look great!

    cheers, Carla


I love feedback, most of all yours.
