Recently I had an interview for a very cool position. I’m not going to jinx it by giving away any details just yet but cross your fingers for me! The position is more on the creative side of things so I wanted to show my personally a bit but still be first interview professional. Now I’m a very girly girl most of the time so this rose print pencil skirt fit the bill perfectly. The peter pan collar makes the otherwise plain silk blouse much more interesting. And the pointed toe basic black pump make this staple shoe modern. I felt like I could take on the world! Wish me luck!!
I love the New Year. It’s a definitive date for you to reset all the things in your life that have gone astray. For me, my blog has really taken the back burner for many lame reasons and excuses. As an old band teacher once said, “Excuses are tools of mediocrity from which we build monuments of nothing.” So, gosh darn it, I’m going to get this blog back on track! Besides, I really enjoy doing it and another not-necessarily-a-resolution thing I want to change is to do more things that make me happy! It’s so easy to get caught up in getting stuff done that you forget to take a minute to have a little fun! Here are my resolutions for the year!
1) Post to my blog every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. (Help hold me to it, Lovely Readers!)
2) Get together with my girlfriends once a month. It doesn’t have to be something epic every month but we’re starting January with a little wine tasting trip.
3) Drink more water! From the feeble amount of research I’ve done, I should drink 2.2 Liters of water a day. So I purchased a 1 Liter Nalgene bottle to carry around and drink 2 refills a day.
Ta Da! Totally doable, right?
I’m just going to be super honest here. I’m a girly girl and I believe in girly looks for date night. Skirts, heels, color, sparkles, etcetera are all things I gravitate toward. It also must show off my girlish curves. That’s why I added the belt to accentuate my waist. The silk tank from my last look was the perfect piece to remix for this occasion. Who doesn’t love the feel of silk on their skin?! The moto jacket does help to even out all of this girly-ness by adding a little edge. I mean, even a girly girl doesn’t want to turn out looking too innocent. It’s date night after all! Make sure to add a dash of sass.
3 DAY REMIX ROUNDUP
Happy Valentine’s Day my loves! I hope you all are getting showered with hugs and kisses from all your loved ones today!
My honey and I tend to celebrate Valentine’s Day not on the actual day. We love doing the gorgeous pre-fix menus with wine pairing meals but sometimes it’s nice to go out a few days later and have the place to ourselves. This year, we’re celebrating our 5th Valentine’s Day together later this weekend (plans still a little TBD). I wanted to give you all a little sneak peek of my what I’ll be wearing!
The Diane von Furstenberg and Andy Warhol Collaboration is so colorful and amazing! It basically spoke to me! Now isn’t that a good enough excuse to purchase? It’s a perfect nice but not over the top look.
Not that birthday suit! My jumpsuit! For my birthday dinner, I got spoiled with a beautiful sunset at Bertrand at Mr. A’s in San Diego. We sipped delicious wine on the patio while watching the city lights flicker on and the planes fly in right at our eye level. It’s one of my favorite places in San Diego for a view of the harbor, downtown, and the sunset. The happy hour patio menu is really reasonably priced too! My mom and I came here once and shared ahi sliders, truffle fries, and 3 glasses of wine for only $36! Anyways, back to my birthday jumpsuit…
I really love a good menswear inspired look. So I went to with a Ted Baker jumpsuit with shorts and a faux wrap front. Every outfit needs the perfect pair of shoes so these gorgeous cutout oxford heels from the Sole Society Julianne Hough Collection were the best bet. They’re so unique and surprisingly comfortable. I’ll be wearing these straight through the holidays with dresses, trousers, and more! Not to mention, my complement-o-meter was going through the roof on these gorgeous heels! Doesn’t every girl love that? Top off your menswear looks with an ultra feminine piece of jewelry and you’re good to go! All in all, it was a gorgeous evening and a wonderful addition to my already great birthday.
