outfit post: black tank, cognac faux leather jacket, jeans


Inspiration - Katie Holmes

I'm feeling a rocker chic vibe for tonight. I chose this inspiration photo because I like the mixing of blacks and browns. I think it is fun and unexpected to combine those colors. (As long as it looks intentional and not like you got dressed in the dark!)

outfit post: white dress, black cardigan, leopard shoes


Inspiration - Rachel Bilson

Randomly getting quite a bit of wear out of my strapless white dress this fall. (Just wore it here and awhile ago here.) Loving the simple black and white look with fun shoes.

outfit post: navy polka-dot dress, black cardigan

Inspiration - Scarlett Johansson

I'm currently pretty obsessed with anything polka-dotted. I think this dress I'm wearing from Old Navy is pretty cute but there are a few items currently at JCrew that I'm totally in love with and wish I could magically move a J.Crew store into my closet and choose freely from their racks. Instead I'm admiring them from afar - Pleated skirt in polka-dot, Naomi top in polka-dot and most of all the sold out Polka-dot tie dress.

more outfit archives!

Exciting! I've added three more months to my outfit archive! Just click the links below or over in the sidebar to view an entire month's worth of outfits at once. (April is a mini-month.)

outfit post: grey sweater, black cropped pants, neon yellow shoes


Inspiration - Gwyneth Paltrow

I love this outfit. It's built totally from basic & neutral clothing pieces that would go with a million other things. Typically put together they would be boring. But as your eye drifts to the bottom of the outfit - WHAM  - fun shoes! I wore this to bookclub at a restaurant for drinks and fun conversation with the girls.

outfit post: grey pencil skirt, plum cardigan, nude pumps


Inspiration - Victoria Beckham

I am in love this combination of colors. The warm of the plum cardigan next to the coolness of the grey pencil skirt feels both current and sophisticated. It wouldn't have occurred to me to pair nude pumps with this outfit - my instinct would have been to reach for black to match the belt and tank - but choosing the nude heels avoids being too matchy-matchy which could potentially date the outfit. I love the result!

outfit post: striped shirt, military jacket, black cropped pant


Inspiration - Olivia Palermo

Today's outfit is a great travel outfit. It has layers for adjusting to changing temperature and flats for running between airport gates. When I'm wearing this outfit with this military inspired jacket I feel current NYC chic and when I remove the jacket and am just wearing the Breton stripes with a cropped pant I feel very 1950s/Audrey Hepburn/Parisian chic. Two great looks that are both fun & cute!

outfit post: teal cardigan, grey pencil skirt, polkadot tie blouse


Inspiration - Banana Republic

Giving a configuration workshop (if I haven't mentioned before I'm in the software business - engineer moved to consultant/project manager) to a bunch of execs at a big company this week so my "business casual" is slightly more dressy then my norm. I think this is a fun & interesting outfit that is still professional.

Random note - the teal of my cardigan is showing up much brighter in this picture then it is in real life...it's actually closer in color to the inspiration photo.

outfit post: polkadot blouse, green cardigan, black shorts


Inspiration - Sincerely, Jules

Here is a causal outfit that could very easily be converted into a work outfit. Patterned top, colored cardigan and neutral bottom - my basic work outfit formula. But by adding shorts instead of dress pants - it's a pulled together casual look instead of cube dwelling garb.

outfit post: maroon camp shirt, floral skirt


Inspiration - Loft

Happy Monday! Today's outfit feels like the perfect way to transition from summer into fall. It has the warm autumnal colors but is still comprised of light breathable fabrics because the temperature in Florida hasn't received the message that summer is over.

outfit post: navy aline skirt, polkadot blouse, mustard cardigan


Inspiration - Little Tin Solider

Cute fun weekend outfit. Run some errands. Meet some girls for brunch. Go see a movie with the hubby. Easy, happy, heading-into-fall outfit. I've been looking for a polka-dot blouse for a few months and finally found this one for $14 by Merona at Target. Very happy with this purchase!

outfit post: pink tweed jacket, pink tweed pencil skirt


Inspiration - Charlotte York (Sex and the City)

Okay today's recreation outfit is me being silly. I bought this skirt and jacket to wear separately (skirt worn here and here) but when I came across this picture of my all time favorite Sex and the City character Charlotte wearing a full on pink tweed suit I just had to play dress up in an outfit I wouldn't actually wear in real life. This outfit is the result. I love the pieces separately and I think the idea of the pink suit is fun but it's way too pink & proper for my everyday life. Fun & silly!

Blair Waldorf is also a fan of the full tweed suit!
