outfit post: grey & white striped tank, white cardigan, yellow shorts


Inspiration - Closed.com

Easy fun happy summer outfit. This is one of my favorite tank tops. I wore it a ton in the Beach Vacation One Suitcase post.

Speaking of the beach - I am headed on VACATION for a week!! I've been working my butt off this year and I'm really ready for a little R&R, unplugged with no computers. So I'm going to take a little blogging break too.

I'll be back to regular posting on June 3rd - hopefully I will return tanned the color of a coconut! :)

outfit post: pink silk blouse, navy cardigan, polka-dot pencil skirt


Inspiration - Putting Me Together

Am I getting a little single white female with how frequently I am using Audrey as inspiration? I hope not! She just has the most similar, wearable wardrobe with the bestest ideas for putting cute outfits together of any blog I read. Her site gives me such great ideas and I love using it to spark my own getting dressed. I wore almost this exact outfit (with coral top instead of pink) back in August and I love it even more with pink. Yay fun!

outfit post: kelly green sweater, grey 'editor' pants, burgundy pumps


Inspiration - Banana Republic

Hmmm these pants are getting a little too snug. (Stupid crotch whiskers - of course I didn't notice them until AFTER I wore this all day - doh.) They are moving from cute-work-appropriate pants category to borderline painted-on ridiculousness. Which unfortunately means it's time to eat a little less Taco Bell and spend a little more moving the ole body.

I think of these pants as my warning pants. I bought them right before my first week of work at my first real job (when I was in pretty decent physical shape playing a ton of city league soccer) and now, nine years later, any time they start to get tight it's a warning that I need less time sitting in front of a glowing computer screen and more time running around out in the sunlight. And probably more broccoli too.

Blerg. Sometimes I wish we lived in a world where mozzerella sticks were a health food.

one suitcase: mini business casual capsule wardrobe


I keep running across this pin on Pinterest from ShopBop and loving it. So I decided to try it out. I think I typically wear a lot of color in my outfits and I could definitely use some focus on practicing how to assemble neutrals. I think a neutral color palette can really lend to a sophisticated look.

There are actually quite a few more possible unique combinations but I was just trying to copy the original pin (and get a post up!) so I stopped at 11 outfits. Here are the details on each outfit:
