This is my go-to look these days. My favorite cropped skinny pants (they’re on sale, 35% off today), a silk (er, polyester) top, and a cardigan if I get cold. Short, boyish hair, boyish shoes, and big glasses, offset by some serious jewelry and simple but feminine makeup. I’ll probably be packing some variation on this for Alt Summit next week, but I’m undecided about what to wear on my panel. It’s about dealing with negativity, so should probably wear something wildly unflattering on me that will be sure to have people guessing when a pregnancy announcement will be imminent! So… short bodycon dress, yes? Something with a peplum?
Ultra Skinny Stretch Pants, Gap
I’ve linked to these before, but that’s because I love them and wear mine often. I’d hate to send you over to a similar looking pair from somewhere else, for variety’s sake, only to find out that they’re terrible!
Plus One Glasses in Maraschino Cherry, Rivet & Sway
Those mottled tortoiseshell glasses always get me.
Pavé Arrowtip Ring, Madewell
A little something to work with that bananas necklace.
Ursa Necklace, Loren Hope
BAM. Now that’s a necklace.
The Kensington Satchel, Madewell
I carried this around the store with me when I did an event there. It’s the perfect size and shape.
Fidji L061 Shoes, Zappos
Smart, boyish oxfords, how I do love thee.
Pim + Larkin Bow Sleeve Blouse in Ballet Pink, Piperlime
Inexpensive little tops like these are a staple of mine. They dress up nicely, tucked into a high-waisted pencil skirt, too!
Charter School Cardigan in Gold, ModCloth
One of my favorite colors to wear. (Maybe because it nearly matches my eyes?)
Écriture de Chanel Automatic Liquid Eyeliner, Nordstrom
The best liquid liner.
Benefit — They’re Real! Mascara, Sephora
I tried this on the advice of some mascara-loving friends, and yeah. It’s awesome.
KORRES Pomegranate Lip Butter, Sephora
Sheer, but still colorful, and good for your lips. Less intense than a full-on lipstick.
p.s. I’m trying something new here. My affiliate program has a ‘shop the post’ widget that I’m embedding below. I included an alternative pair of shoes and another bag that almost made the post. Helpful?
