all in the details.

Ralph Lauren shirt (similar), 7 for All Mankind jeans, Club Monaco jacket, Aldo pumps (also seen here), J. Crew earrings and belt, Forever21 necklace and rings (similar), vintage bracelet and watch (similar)

I love the classics. Audrey Hepburn, red nails, little black dresses. Florals for spring, chocolate chip cookies with milk, John Hughes movies. Pearl studs, white roses, aviator sunglasses. Are we seeing a pattern here? When plagued by fashion brain freeze before work one Friday, I turned to my favorite pieces: a classic boy-style white button-down, well-fitting skinny jeans, a black jacket, and nude heels. A look that could easily be boring -- but thanks to perfect tailoring, corset and pleat detailing on the back of the jacket, and an excess of pretty, delicate gold jewelry, turned out to be just what I needed to snap me out of my rut.



On another note, I hope you all enjoyed my really classy workplace-bathroom shot. I feel so grown-up. Wishing you all the happiest of weekends!

I take pictures all the time in my office's bathroom. Too bad we don't have a full-length mirror. I would really take advantage of that.
