I sometimes think of my blog as a paper doll or a mood board. It’s a place for my to put together looks that I may not ever wear IRL and that’s ok. Finding inspiration from other bloggers, or even one element of an outfit online can spark a whole look for me. This is one of those looks.

I have said multiple times that dressing for work is hard for me in the summer. I’m just kind of hot and miserable. Kristyn posted this Embellished Sheath Dress on Instagram a couple weeks ago and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. I haven’t pulled the trigger on it because I haven’t decided about shopping for new work clothes before I start my new job, but it’s definitely on my wish list!

A dress like that doesn’t really need a necklace because of the embellishments, but I think the Piña Studs compliment the beading on the dress perfectly.

The bags I use for day-to-day need to be big enough for my planner, my wallet, phone, ipod, headphones, and “social pouchy” (the silly name by bestie and I call the pouches we move from purse to purse that’s pre-packed with essentials like mini-brushes and perfume samples). The Ted Baker London Blossom Leather Tote fits the bill AND it has cherry blossoms on it’ so this DC girl approves.

I’m kind of a little booboo b*tch when it comes to wearing heels. Just not a fan and I complain about my feet hurting and it’s bad time for everyone involved. The exception comes in two forms: a low, block heel, or a sweet pair of espadrilles like these Caterina Scalloped Cutout Suede Wedge Espadrilles.

It’s cooling down a bit (for now) but aside from that, offices are always chilly. I always keep a cardigan or a scarf like the Badgley Mischka Ocelot Jacquard Wrap at my desk. And don’t forget a great pair of sunnies like these Round Cat Eye Sunglasses, which have 100% UV protection.

Have you ever seen a piece that inspired a whole look?

When I was in college, there were 3 of us who did pretty much everything together, or at least two at a time. Jennifer, Greer, and I were the Sassy Bitties, a subset of the broader Homegirls, members of Phi Sigma Sigma. All three of us were lettered (honorary brothers) of Tau Kappa Epsilon. My college boyfriend was in that house, as was Jennifer’s now fiance, Andrew. Andrew practically lived in our house and even wrote a song about us.

While I was downstairs in a single, you could probably find me in Greer + Jenn’s room chasing shots of Pinnacle Whipped with nachos. Gross. Or napping in one of their beds. Or, most likely, all three of us were at TKE. Those fun times I wouldn’t trade for anything! And now Andrew + Jenn are getting married in December an I am so thrilled that not only two of my best friends from Rider University are getting married, but that I get to bring Kendall to meet some of my best friends from Rider.

Since I’ll be seeing a lot of old friends, many I have not not seen in years, I want to look especially fab. The wedding is in December, so I can’t just “recycle” any of the pastel dresses I’ve worn in the weddings I was in this past year.Thank goodness for Rent The Runway. My only issue is that there are SO MANY CHOICES and I want them all. I need help picking a dress! I love love love the RED Valentino Fancy Flower Printed Dress but I’m not sure if I can pull off florals that time of year. I also adore the Badgley Mischka Fifth Avenue Showstopper Dress, but is rose gold too light for winter? All thoughts appreciated!
