Flashback

I was with one of my friends when I bought this blazer and she immediately was like "omg put that down, it looks like something out of Ferris Bueller's day off" and I said "that's why I like it!" Anyway, it was only $35 and I really like the colors and pattern, plus it's very soft, so I figured I'd try it out. I wore this to court on a Friday when I only had 1 courtroom to go to. I would never wear this to trial because of the sort of loud pattern, but I think it's great for a Friday or more casual day at the office.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2014

I'm so grateful for the opportunity that I had this year to go to a few of the Swim Week shows last weekend. This year, I tried to soak in more of the sights rather than try to capture images with my camera or phone. There really is no point in me trying to take amazing pictures because there were like 50+ photographers at every show, and I'm sure amazing images are already online! I had 3 possible outfits that I was choosing from, and I was surprised by my own last-second choice to go with this very old dress (possibly tunic that I just wear as a dress, lol) (5 years!) I figured I am always drawn to my "new" clothes so I should take the opportunity to wear something old that I still like and pair it with new items (my shoes) and some loved but rarely worn items (my bag). Unfortunately my shoes got a littttttle messed up in a torrential downpour, but I think with some scrubbing I can get them to look good as new. Check out what I wore below along with my favorite bikinis from the shows I saw, along with videos of the Dolores Cortes, Frankie's Bikinis, and Wildfox shows!

Little Black (Lace) Dress

I went shopping with a friend of mine 2 weekends ago and I picked up this black lace dress on a whim at Nordstrom. After just recently posting about not owning a real "LBD" now I can say I do! FYI this dress by ASTR runs very small in the waist, with an XS seeming like it fits similarly to my 00 items. An online search revealed the dress also comes in white lace.. and I honestly have to practice restraint not to go out and get the white version too. 
Dress: ASTR
Shoes: Shoedazzle (the real deal)
Necklaces: Macy's (similar) & Forever 21 (similar)
Watch: Michael Kors
Bracelet: Ann Taylor (similar)

Summer Work Wear

The Zara seasonal sale is in full swing (anyone pick up anything good?) and I ordered the below jacket to try during a 1 AM shopping spree (a rarity these days for me). FYI it's actually a pretty heavy jacket, but the color is certainly summer appropriate. I was hoping for something in more of a summer fabric but I liked the jacket too much to return it. How do you dress differently for the office in the summer?
