Festive attire

It’s the last few days of 2014 so, it’s time to think about festive attire. There will be dinners, parties and work related gatherings requiring attire suitable for the occasion.

This is my first planned outfit for the week. Festive but not too much, glitzy but not too sparkly. The knee high boots are the classic 5050 boot by Stuart Wietzman. They were my splurge buy this winter along with this beautiful metallic sweater by Maje (on sale now). The boots are just so comfortable. I wear them day and night and they just add that Chic factor to any outfit.

Summer Breeze

Finding that perfect summer outfit, the one that you wear all the time because it’s comfortable during hot summer days, is not always easy. It’s kind of funny that I’m thinking about my perfect summer outfit while it’s been pouring rain here in Michigan the last few days…

My perfect outfit is a good pair of shorts, a flowey top, nice pair of sandals/espadrilles/flats and my favorite sunglasses. It’s an outfit that looks good for day and a casual evening out, and most important – comfortable!

The outfit below is the perfect mix of old and new: the blouse is by Equipment (my ultimate brand for everything silk and/or blousy) purchased 3 years ago at Bloomingdale’s, the chambray shorts are from J Crew purchased this year, the sandals are Stuart Weitzman purchased 2 years ago and the Valentino bag was a gift I received just a few months ago. Since I constantly edit my wardrobe it is very easy for me to mix and match and to reuse items over the years. The satisfaction is higher knowing they were great buys. This is by far one of my favorite looks!

Enjoy the last days of Summer because as they say “Winter is coming!”
