Daily Uniform.

Dress: DVF  Shoes: Tory Burch  Necklaces: Tiffany & Co.  Bracelets: DVF and Bauble Bar 

It's very important to make my often stressful days at work be comfortable, but also have fun with my outfits. This pairing of leggings and a tunic dress is ideal, while the neon brightens my day. I'm always trying to figure out a new way to make leggings look polished since I can't get enough of them. And let's not forget the fabulous addition of pockets. I think I need this tunic in every color. Too much? Or just right?

Kimono Two Ways.

Jacket: H&M  Jeans: Rock & Republic  Shoes: Dolce Vita  Watch: Lacoste  Sunglasses: DVF

What's better than a brightly colored silk kimono-inspired jacket? One that's reversible! I am obsessed with this jacket. It's so easy to throw on and look polished and you get two different looks in one. I'm always on the hunt for a colored accent that works well with an all-black ensemble. All I need to add are some big shades and accessories.

Freaky Friday.

If we switched bodies for a day, here's what we'd wear.

If I was Mo, I'd take a style cue from her idol Blake Lively and rock a sequin mini, blazer and bootie combo. It's the perfect combo for a ladies night on the town. And of course, a designer bag on her arm wouldn't hurt.

If I was dollie, I'd wear this floral number. Her petite frame is ideal for this tight bodice and fuller skirt. I am obsessed with this all over floral pattern and mixing in another floral with the clutch. All she needs are some strappy sandals and bangles to finish the look.

Feeling Fancy.

Dress: Zara  Heels:  Kenneth Cole  Clutch:  Vintage

I wore this outfit to a dear friend's wedding recently. When it comes to dressing up, I almost always look for either a) fringe, b) sequins or c) an interesting back. Those are my go-to's when it's time to put on my Sunday best.

Note to self: Always bring pressed powder and a fan to summer weddings. Frizzy hair plus a sweaty face is not conducive to fashion blogging.

At The Outlets

Dress & cardigan: DVF  Flip flops: Marc Jacobs  Earrings: Boutique find  Ring: Forever 21
A breezy cotton dress with pockets is my "go to" weekend attire. All you need are simply accessories and comfy flip flops.

After a really draining work week, I can't think of a better way to spend my day off than at Woodbury Commons with gorgeous weather outside. For those of you who don't know the wonder of WC, it's like a shopping mall outside with quasi sample sale prices or at a discount. The highlight of my shopping trip is of course the DVF store. You will definitely see a trend in my wardrobe, that I have an unhealthy obsession with all things DVF. I can't even begin to describe the many reasons why I love DVF, from the colors, unique prints, universally flattering cuts/designs, and her inspiring mantras.  

 My aspiration is for my closet to look just like her store.... which most of my friends will say it almost does!

Freaky Friday

If we switched bodies for a day, here's what we'd wear.

If I was Mo, I'd rock the maxi skirt, denim jacket combo. She knows how to rock a cropped jacket and she's tall enough to really pull off the maxi length. I'm also obsessed with the high bun and my hair is too short to pull it off. Oh to be Momo for a day...

Whenever I'm shopping I come across outfits that are what I call "Dollie inspired" a.k.a meant just for Laura. These are outfits that I think I could never pull off so I can only live vicariously though her wearing them. When we used to live closer to each other, I was lucky enough to get to force her into these outfits. I spotted this outfit while shopping in J.Crew. She would look so fierce rocking these teeny shorts, bright colors, and mixed patterns. A little taste of playful NYC with a preppy summer look just as fabulous in Maine.

In A Rush

Dress: Bruun's Bazaar  Shoes: Urban Outfitters

Today I had no one to take my photo. So what did I do? I set it up on a timer, ran in front of the camera, posed and then ran to work. Ah the life of a blogger. How do some people make it look so fashionable? Note to self: brush hair and put on make-up next time. Heh.

These are my favorite shoes of all time. You will see me wear them more often than is appropriate.
