Adrien: Way Back When.

I had to dig deep for this one!  I'll admit it pains me to dress like an adult in the summer but I can't go to work looking like a garbage person so I pulled it together:

This is my other great Ann Taylor skirt from that one great year when everything was great. (I think I have four pieces from that year I still wear regularly.) The leopard skirt they have right now (P4 only!) is pretty dang cute, I will admit, but I LOVE this Current/Elliott grey denim leopard skirt and the price is great! And if pencil skirts aren't for you check out this adorable leopard full skirt. Also, I can't stop looking at this amazing BCBG leopard skirt even though faux fur panels are... challenging. 

This is part of why I love this skirt - check out that kick pleat! That's the kind of fun detail I like in a skirt. I mean, check out this Trina Turk skirt. It's all about the back, right?  

Details! I'm wearing a very pretty Luv AJ lariat necklace that I got in my summer Box of Style. I love that it's so light and works great with weird necklines. This one, also by Luv AJ, is pretty similar and on sale! I also love Madewell's pretty lariat necklaces. My bracelet is Giles and Brother and my garnet ring was a gift. 

My top is from Banana Republic and I love the fit except it's so low cut I have to tape it all up for work. Annoying. I will say, I might be ready to check out BR again. This Pintuck-Bib top is intriguing and the print on this Floral Crepe top is so pretty. I'm also curious about the Tiered Vee Blouse but it could go either way on me. I'm not getting too excited though because this war crime of a dress is still for sale. (I believe Marianne called it, "Swamps of Sadness" green.)

 My bag is a MBMJ Too Hot to Handle hobo which I carry way too much. There is ONE in "Light Chocolate" on 6pm right now! On sale! Someone get that, please. You will have no regrets. The newer version is very nice but a bit bigger and has a zippy top. (I like my version better.) This Talbots leather hobo looks like a really good and inexpensive dupe.

But seriously, someone buy that MBMJ bag. It's hurting my feelings.

My sandals are Chie Mihara and if you wear a 7.5 you should probably be checking out this updated version that's on sale. If you are not a 7.5 maybe this pair instead? Just a suggestion.


  1. well done digging ; you look particularly fetching :)
