Mild Mannered


 



coat (Zara, SIMILAR on sale for $50), skirt & tee (J.Crew, LOVE this shade), shoes (Pour La Victoire), belt (J.Crew), necklace (BaubleBar/Atlantic-Pacific Collection), shades (Michael Kors), clutch (Treesje, DARLING option for spring), bracelets (J.Crew Voce on Clay), ring (David Yurman), watch (Michael Kors)
Mild temps in the Bluegrass yesterday & today!  And while it literally should be illegal to show my casper-like stems in public, I just couldn't resist embracing the 'warmth' sans the tights!  This look is certainly one that will transition perfectly into the spring.  Remember THIS THIS?  Just a little illustration of how we can sport the tweed & stripes moving into the warmer months (which let's face it--we got a ways to go)!

Little housekeeping note, per the advice of Jill, I (think) I have implemented a new 'comment' platform (I heard lots of issues with peeps not being able to comment on the old one, and quite frankly, I had difficulty replying, too) called Disqus.  Give it a whirl as I LOVE getting feedback from y'all and I do my best to reply accordingly (just know I read EVERY tidbit)!  

Also, in cased you missed it--getting my purge action on and parting ways with my lovely Gucci Positano Tote, feel free to take a gander (and bid)!  Stay tuned as I'm feeling the need to cleanse my closet.  Alright gang, make it a good one!

  6. LOVE the outfit lady! It looks gorgeous... I can't see the comments text - looks like maybe it's set to white which you can probably change through your template. Otherwise I really hope you enjoy the Disqus program, once you get all the wrinkles ironed out it's the best way to go!

  7. I'm usually pretty dark skinned, but this winter I've been pale as ever. But you better believe that when the sun decides to play, I don't even care. Skirts, dresses and bare legs it is! I love this combination so much! You look so ladylike and lovely!

  16. That skirt + shirt combo is seriously amazing! I don't own a single pencil skirt (in my defense, I can't really wear skirts to work), but I know I'll be investing in a J. Crew one in the near future.


    Also, you found the perfect background for these pictures.


    ok, I'll stop gushing now.

  23. Love the skirt and the striped top! So lovely!

  24. That skirt and shirt go perfectly together. The necklace is fantastic, and the bag is the perfect pop of color to break up the monochromatic-ness of all the pink. Not that I have a problem with all the pink. It's so perfectly spring!
