Style: August 2011

I like the mix of dressy and casual in this one. A red pencil skirt and sexy shoes are dressed down with a slouchy dolman-sleeved tee and an unstructured leather tote. I’d wear this outfit with my hair pulled back in a low ponytail, a pair of oversized glasses, and a couple of bracelets. Easy, but pulled together.

      You’re so sweet! I love your shop. I found it recently and now I want one of each bracelet you make. They’re all so perfect.

    Those shoes are an insane find and the whole look is perfection. Thanks for sharing!

    Super cute. But a warning: that bag is my most regretted purchase ever. You can’t carry more than a very light wallet in the thing without tears in the bag and on the handles. (And I recently visited a Gap factory store where Gap/BR/Old Navy stores send their damages and saw a whole bin of those bags with torn handles…they’d been damaged before even making it to stores.) Not worth it for the money.

    Always my favorite posts, I love the pop of red and the link bracelet is so me. I need you to be my personal stylist. I am sure when you wear this outfit you look sweet as sugar.

    oooh yes, I do agree. I was actually perving on the those shoes this morning and trying desperately to think up an excuse to get them – sigh… I wasn’t creative enough to come up with one! :(

    I love this board – so inspiring! The glasses are especially cool. Thanks for leading me to that site – I’m thinking about ordering some pairs to try on. My current favorite glasses are from Zenni Optical, but their quality is meh. The only thing is … I *love* my current glasses. They’re pink! They only last about 3 months though.
