Pink Sequins FTW!

What’s a better excuse to wear sequins than the start of the holiday season!? I feel like a Golden Girl –  I am so happy to sparkle like this. I think it’s hard to not look moderately glamorous with a full midi skirt and a little sparkle. And how chic is this little red Chanel dupe!? 25 bucks y’all! I am also really enjoying this half-up topknot! Try it out for Christmas parties. Cheers!

C’est Bon!

C’est bon! A born worrier, I am constantly reminding myself, “it’s all good.” I am really keen on French typography as well so this shirt is a win win. Also, this sweater – softest cardi in the world. If you like your personal space though, I would not recommend it. People cannot help but pet you like a cat. I really like the mix of whites in this ensemble. The cream cardigan offset by the clean and crisp white of the tee is quite cool. I also think the juxtaposition of the structured letters in the tee shirt with the fuzzy and soft texture of the sweater is quite smart.

I have no sympathy for those who complain at Thanksgiving dinner for being too full when they are wearing jeans, dress pants, or even chinos – rookie mistake. We were given the elastic waistband for a reason. Today I looked pretty derrrnnn fancy, but I was still comfortable enough in my Express sequined mini skirt (with a very stretchy waistband) to consume 2 Thanksgiving dinners. Yes, that’s right – dos meals – deux. It’s hardly a 4X Gilmore Girls feast, however, it’s harder than it sounds. You don’t want to offend any grandmas by passing on their famous stuffing or the 24 pound turkey. Elastic is the way to go. This is also a great example of how you can get away with mixing textures and patterns. I think people shy away from purchasing pieces like sequin minis because they aren’t sure what to pair them with. Who says you have to wear a boring solid blouse? Why not pair it with a great pattern like I have here!? I love this look. The skirt is more versatile than you would think. Be brave! Happy Thanksgiving and gobble gobble!

The more Gilmore Girls I binge, the more I want to be an Ivy League blue-blood. The risks of mutation, however, brought on by incest is a bit unappealing. I can safely say my Revolutionary War ancestors were not related to the Croatians. Phew! This Tuesday, I was feeling exceptionally preppy, so I wore my gingham banana republic button up and a smart blazer. Tell me I am not the vision of respectableness.

It has always been my dream to be a 1950s prom queen for Halloween and this year it came true! 1950s prom queens are an elite group of ghosts that parade around Halloween in ’57 Chevys and eat gallons of candy and never gain a millimeter to their waistline. Poofy hair, poofy skirt… how can you go wrong? And yes, the answer to your question is: this is all my hair, it took 47.5 minutes, and I know beehives are more 1960s, but #yolo. Happy Halloween!

Who says you can’t bring baseball to the office? I actually don’t think anyone has ever said that, but here’s my tribute to the WORLD CHAMPION SF GIANTS while still remaining chic, comfortable, and office apro-pro. This outfit is idiot proof. Ingredients: Billowy tee, midi-skirt, boyfriend blazer – 3 colors, 3 pieces, hashtag: cake.  Each piece is a cotton/spandex blend, making this look almost as comfy as your jammies. I think people think that sweats are the only “comfy” clothes around. This is a lie. This outfit is just as comfy as a hoodie + pair of yoga pants, and it’s redonkulously cool. #saynotosweats #gogiants
