Jeans and a Tee

You’ll probably notice that I couldn’t get away from this brick wall.  It definitely made for a great background!  If only you could see what the field in front of it looked like.  One day …. BUT I did add a picture in an alley behind Starbucks to spice it up a bit! IMG_2490 IMG_2460 IMG_2407 IMG_2313

I had planned for this post to be really causal – what I wear when I’m running errands on the weekends and just hanging out. Usually I wear my contacts, but I had to work the morning of this photoshoot and I needed a nap BAD.  I can’t sleep with my contacts on so I had to decide between suffocating my eyeballs and not napping or napping and wearing glasses for these photos.  You can guess which one I chose.  I’m pretty much blind behind those sunglasses which was great because I couldn’t be embarrassed when people walked by because I couldn’t see them!  haha

On to the outfit – I have this top in 2 colors because I love it that much.  Reason #1: It’s a v-neck and those tend to look better on me.  Reason #2: The back is longer than the front.  I discussed my love for shirts like this in my Sunday Sunset post.  Reason #3: It’s so freaking soft!  When I bought this shirt I told my sister how much I loved them and she asked me to walk right back into the store and buy her some.  She does that a lot – she should pay me to be her personal stylist.  I hope she’s reading this….

Sunday Sunset

I had to work this holiday weekend.  When I left the work event, the sun was starting to set and it was so beautiful.  The light that was caught in the pictures is unbelievable – no filter could ever recreate it.

Outfit Details:

Top: Madewell (Similar) | Pants: Anthropologie (Similar) | Shoes: Kate Spade | Handbag: Chanel | Sunglasses: Bottega Veneta | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: David Yurman

This is my usual work attire – black skinny ankle work pants and a blouse.  I’m a Southern California girl at heart.  I don’t like to layer and feel constricted so I’m enjoying the warm weather right now.  I love this blouse I got from Madewell.  I can wear it for work or with some ripped jeans for date night.  The back is a little longer than the front which is probably what drew me to this blouse to begin with.  I feel like I hardly ever wear any tops that just go straight across on the bottom anymore.  When I’m out of the office at work events, I’m usually talking to a lot of students and hate leaving my handbag sitting around unattended or weighing me down.  The Chanel Wallet on a Chain (or any crossbody for that matter) works because I almost forget it’s there, yet it holds everything I need.  Plus, since it has that gold chain on the strap it adds something to my outfit, I don’t need to wear a necklace – two birds, one stone.

Hope everyone had a wonderful President’s Day/Valentine’s Day weekend!
