All About Coral

Today, I went for a pop of coral-ish neon on an otherwise neutral palette. I love the taupe with the navy & coral. So pretty! I also love the look of the blouse tucked into the pants. Gotta see part of that crouch to make the leg line look longer!


Blouse: Thirfted (Halogen) -- $8
Pants: Target (sale) -- $13
Shoes: Thrifted (BP) -- $12
Necklace: Nordstrom -- $35

OOTD Dis

You guys. I hated my outfit today. As much as I tried to like it, I kept looking down at myself and thinking, "Why did I pair a sports bra (!?!?!?) with a floral top and nautical culottes?! And then a jean jacket and heels?! What?!" I mean, in theory, this works. High-waisted culotte pants, heels (to elongate the leg line), a cropped topped tucked in with a cropped jean jacket. Perfect on paper. But I don't think it translated into real life. That being said, Jason along with several of my coworkers really liked it. So...I guess everyone has their own taste. I just didn't quite feel like myself in this outfit.

Disclaimer: The sports bra was my pop of neon. I'm not sure it worked very well.


Jacket: Thrifted (Gap) -- $10
Tank: Forever 21 -- $8
Sports Bra: JCP -- $12
Culottes: Thrifted (vintage) -- $24
Shoes: Calvin Klein -- $60

Outfit Total: $114



See the neon? See? It was supposed to be clever and brilliant!

The Weekend Stagette

Whew! What a whirlwind of a weekend! I was in Vancouver, BC for a dear friend's bachelorette (or stagette, as they call it in Canada, eh?) weekend. How many years has it been since you've stayed out until 4am? For me, it's been...5 years? 7 years? 10 years? I can't remember. I'm not one to stay out super late, but I'm also a night owl by definition. No matter the sleep schedule that I'm on (ahem, I'm talking to you, 7:30am to 4pm work schedule), I can always stay up until midnight or later. Certainly, I regret it in the morning, but I swear, my body is programmed that way. Anywho, we stayed out suuuuuuuper late, we dined at fabulous restaurants, got some relaxation time at the spa, and skipped our way through the city as a non-bachelorette bachelorette party. Or as Yvette was calling it, a divorce party. Hahahaha. (It was just for the sheer reaction of bar-goers.)

So, you wanna see some pictures from the weekend?

The bride. Isn't she just the sexiest babe backpacker ever? Haaa

FLASH TATS! The biggest hit over the weekend!
