After the rain.

We're prepping for a family vaca and I've been dying to break out this dress. Lunches alfresco, long naps, beach mornings and bike rides are what I'm looking forward to. It'll be the first time we take the girls on a plane since they were babies. Crazy right?

By the way, have any of you been to Hilton Head? We're first-timers. If you have must-see's or suggestions...I'd love to hear them!

Creature comforts.

I find comfort in routine while I totally thrive off change. It's confusing isn't it?

Ever since I transitioned out of my FT job and into creating my own company, there's a weight that has been lifted. Not that I was carrying around a burden working at my other job...quite the opposite. I really liked my last job, however; there's a certain pleasure I've discovered in creating my own days...quotas...plans.

It's the first time in over a decade that I feel a tremendous calm and I'm reveling in it. I love tapping into my creative side again.

Every once in a while my sartorial taste takes a complete 360 and I go from ripped jeans to ladylike ensembles. It's an all or nothing game, really. 

Today's outfit sort of came together unintentionally. It started with the pink skirt. What goes with a pink skirt...florals obviously?! And the rest is history.

Street style.

Part deux of my street style series. (in case you missed last week' here) There's something very city about cobblestone. Wouldn't you agree? Although, not ideal for high heels...this we know. 

I loved shooting with Jennifer Claire Photography because despite the cold, she was open to shooting anywhere. Dark alley? Sure. In front of a garage? Why not? Stand on a garbage can? Definitely!

What a week! I was so relieved when Friday hit. Not only is it a welcome change to sift through my denim piles; it was also nice to mix up some layering pieces as well. Between a very FT job, one ear infection, one sore throat, a broken car handle and crappy sleep - this was about as creative as I could get. 

Looking back in retrospect, there's nothing not to love about this outfit. It's still polished enough for a Friday but relaxed enough without looking sloppy. Like I always say people: stock pile enough neutrals in your closet for those brain dead days. Zero brain activity and still looking chic is a must when you're in a pinch.

Wardrobe workhorse.

There are certain items in my closet that really serve as the workhorses in my wardrobe. In particular, I get a lot of mileage in the blouse department. Every season I pick out 5-10 new, affordable options that can be paired with both skirts or trousers because versatility is key in a corporate environment. 

My husband works in a true corporate environment which is 100% traditional in every aspect of their dress code. I would never be able to get away with my current work ensembles however, I do class it up when I am meeting with big restaurant groups, etc. Looking the part is the half the battle in my opinion. (except for Friday's which always call for denim)

Penny Lane.

“Music, you know, true music not just rock ‘n’ roll, chooses you.” -Lester Bangs

I knew how I was going to style this dress the moment I saw it. It's so very Penny Lane and I cannot wait to throw on a fur vest when the weather turns a little cooler. It's a little out of my typical, pencil-skirt-wearing-wheelhouse but truly, this is my comfort zone.
