I’m back (and with a new do)! I went on a road trip vacation to Canada and it was incredibly fun. I had all these plans to take lots of pictures and blog the whole thing but two things got in the way. 1- The place I stayed did not have wifi and 2- It is a pain in the bum to carry around a big camera all day and we stayed out pretty late at night.
These photos are from the very beginning of my trip when we went to an antique car show. I put this outfit together because I was loving all the geometric shapes and how they looked together. I was a bit dressed up for the event BUT as Oscar Wilde said, “You can never be overdressed or undereducated.”
My personality is pretty free spirited but I went full fledged into the roll with this outfit. As I’ve been creating this blog, I’ve come to realize how much I’m currently loving seventies inspired clothing (I created a new category for all the 70s inspired looks I’ve posted). So, I let my inner hippie loose. I rocked the headband, skipped the footwear, and frolicked in the garden. Although, I must admit, I wasn’t committed enough to go shoeless to work so I added a pair of sandals. That decision was probably for the best.
I spent this past weekend at my boyfriend’s family lake house. I was beautiful and wonderful and relaxing.
We went on a hike!
And swam in the lake.
I clearly can’t wait to get into the water!
This was an awesome weekend and I’m so sad it’s over! Here are some of the outfits I wore on my weekend getaway. 1-3: Cutout shoulder sweater and statement necklace. This was perfect for the one rainy day we had. We went out for lunch and a movie. (I was not a Planet of the Apes fan but my boyfriend loved it.) 4-6: My jacket and leggings are both Lululemon. I was covered up enough to keep the bugs out but my skin was still able to breathe. Lulu is the only brand I’ve found which can make this possible. And finally 7-9: This is my favorite coverup dress. I’ve had it for a few years (from Forever 21) and I’m still in love with the colors and patterns in it. But I still couldn’t wait to take it off and jump into the water!
I hope you enjoyed my 3 getaway looks! Follow for more!
So, I had an important event at work and we were told to wear all black clothing… necklaces don’t count as clothing right?!?
Impatiently waiting for my chai to be ready…..
I love a good little black dress, but for summer it needed some spicing up. I got this hot pink necklace at Francesca’s which I am actually posing in front of in the first picture! I also went with Tiffany Case by OPI for nails which is all sparkles and perfect for summer. These little pops of color make all the difference in making a look feel new. I work in a creative environment so this dress is perfectly acceptable to wear but, if this isn’t quite work appropriate for your office, the look is also perfect for a cocktail party or a night out with friends!
