It seems like the last few weeks have been mostly rainy days. It even rained most of the time we were in Italy! I was a little bummed to come home to even more rain. I picked this outfit in defiance of the gloom and doom of the forecast. Pink is the happiest color to me, and I have been dying to wear this satin blazer I picked up from & Other Stories while I was in Rome. It’s a really versatile styling piece, surprisingly. It’s an easy thing to throw on with a vintage tee, faded denim, and fun pumps. I’m glad this particular shade of pink is having a moment, it just cheers me up looking at it.

The skirt is by Au Jour le Jour, and I got it from VOD Boutique here in Dallas about three years ago. The sneakers are by Premiata and you can get them here. The striped sweater I am wearing underneath is by Calle Del Mar, and is produced in the USA in women owned factories. It’s an amazing riff on 70’s athletic wear, I am going to be living in this for a long time to come.

I threw it on with a denim mini, a rock tee, teal tights and leopard pumps to go see a movie on Sunday. Maybe its a crazy combination, but it was loads of fun to wear! I’m crazy for anything Ungaro. Always the best prints, colors, and fabric. I was lucky to snag this coat for a steal, I’ll definitely be wearing this come fall.

I love this Aldo sandal that’s available at DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse. I’m wearing it with a cream linen suit and a rock and roll tee. It makes a tomboy look sleek enough to wear for an evening out. I was so glad to find the perfect shoe to wear with my favorite suit. I also love nude shoes with miniskirts and dresses in the summer because they can give the illusion of mile long legs! It’s a styling trick you see a lot of celebrities using lately. No matter how you style them, it’s hard to go wrong with a classic sexy heel.
