I don’t know why but something about this outfit makes me think of traveling to Europe with friends and eating/drinking at sidewalk cafes. I think it’s because all of the pieces by American Living are versatile and comfortable (crucial when packing) and yet a pop of raspberry red lips, a bright flower and a classic pair of heels make them slightly more sophisticated.

One of my favorite things about traveling with friends is the process of getting ready for a night out on the town. Everyone’s rummaging in each other’s suitcases, the frequent question is “does this look ok?” and by the end of an hour spent getting ready, everyone is wearing each others clothes and usually far dressier than they need to be.

Although I don’t have any travel plans in the near future, I’m definitely making a mental note of this outfit for the next time I jet off to a fun place with friends.

Birthday Dress

This past weekend was perfect. I celebrated my birthday with my Mom and my closest friends, I ate more pizza than you can possibly imagine, and I found the perfect party dress for my birthday party.

After browsing around Opening Ceremony and Barneys, my Mom and I stumbled into Jill Stuart (whose collection I pretty much cried over last season) and boing! there was this dress. I tried on a few others but something about the colors in this one had me sold. I love the 1920s vibe combined with the gold accents and accordion skirt - you better believe I was fanning it out all night. Since my birthday party was a bit more low key, I dressed my party frock down with some chunky boots and a leather jacket (when it got cold) but boy oh boy I can’t wait to really jazz this dress up!

Next week is already  booked with tons of meetings, events, and shoots so I’m really looking forward to a weekend of relaxation. I’ve been a sick bean for the past two days and as a result am totally wiped! Aside from watching lots of documentaries (currently on National Geographics, “Natures Fury”), I’ll be working on some DIY projects this weekend that will most likely leave my apartment in a big glittery mess.

Here are a few snapshots from this past week which was all fun and games until the mean mucous monster came into my life…

This is what I call the Dayquil glow…

Yesterday morning I woke up feeling like someone started a fire in my throat while a marching band was practicing in my head. Needless to say I was one sick puppy without any interest in putting more than five minutes into my outfit for work. I decided to go for comfort on a day that I’d rather have spent in bed watching movies and chose this soft dress that’s actually a nightgown from the pajama department at Target (shh don’t tell).

I dragged my tired toosh to work but was so thankful to be wearing pajamas a comfortable dress since I spend the majority of my days sitting in a chair in awkward positions. I was pretty out of it for most of the day (thank you Dayquil!) and managed to run into an elevator door while it was closing and now have a giant bump on my head which you can actually see in some of these photos - it looks like a giant vein on my forehead…yeah, don’t lie, you all see it…

I guess that’s all part of pajama days…if you’re dressed like you’re in bed then chances are you’re going to go about your day sleepwalking. Let’s just be thankful I didn’t take any Nyquil…

Derek Lam Racing Striped Caped Jacket - $2,190

I have a bit of a outerwear obsession - it’s the one thing I’m always telling myself NOT to shop for, and yet every season a few new pieces wind up hanging in my closet. Those sneaky jackets!

I’ve been dreaming about this Derek Lam cape/jacket since I saw it on the runway last season but the price is waaay a bit too steep for my budget. Unfortunately, unlike my J.Crew versus Celine comparison (see here), I’ve been unable to find anything remotely similar to this beauty, but oh! how amazing would it be to own it! I love the murky green with the racing stripe and that extra little detail of leather on the edges. Ugh, I hate the pains of fashion desire.
