Happy Dots

gap_uniqloLast night, I headed to the burb’s for a small gathering to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday. With little time to get ready when I got home from work, I needed a quick outfit change. Since the gathering was somewhat casual, I threw on a tank, pair of jeans and my go to summer flats. Decided to mix it up with some polka dots and stripes. Lastly, I grabbed the newest additions to my arm candy family because I never leave home without something on my wrists. Right before entering the restaurant, I made my photographer (my poor fiance) snap a few photos of my outfit. Luckily my skinny jeans have super stretch in them because I stuffed myself silly that night with some good Vietnamese cuisine.

Penciled In

mossimo by target_nine west_warby parkerRifling through the racks at Closet Connection, I could not help but notice this perfectly patterned pencil skirt. Crossing my fingers while in the fitting room I breathed a sigh of relief when I zipped it up and it fit like a glove. The best part was, I scored this skirt for $12! I love the versatility of this skirt. As pictured, I styled it to be office appropriate but can easily turn it into a more casual look by throwing on a chambray shirt and a pair of summer espadrille flats. I love items of clothing that can double for work and play; more bang for the buck.

icelandNow that I am back into the swing of things since my return from Iceland, I figured I would give you an update on my short stint in Reyjavik; what I did, what I wore, etc. My weekend trip was to surprise a dear friend for her big 3-0! She was completely shocked when she woke up to her sister and me chilling in the sick apartment her husband rented for us. The apartment was full of interesting pieces of art, as you will see in some of my pics below.
