When it comes to dressing in a snap, I keep things straightforward and simple. For instance, yesterday the carpet-cleaning guy stopped by my apartment while I was still in my pajamas (oh, the perils of working from home), so I threw this outfit on before heading out the door to work at a coffee shop for the afternoon. I haven’t worn my chambray blouse for quite awhile, so I paired it with the first pants I could grab out of my closet and the easiest shoes I could slip on.
The first time I got to wear eyeliner was in 7th grade; I’m fairly certain my first attempt made me look like a bit of a raccoon. Since then, I’ve perfected the best line for my eyes, and no matter what my makeup routine looks like for the day, it will always include eyeliner. I’ve tested quite a few throughout the years. Shop my favorites below!
Sorry for the quite unintended break in posts! My friend Keri got married this past weekend, and I was honored to be one of the bridesmaids! I was staying at her house for the week near Chicago, and between attempting to maintain a regular work schedule (which didn’t happen, by the way), catching up with friends in the area and wedding prep, I knew I’d be pressed for time to create blog posts for last week. But the break was well worth it! The wedding was absolutely beautiful — and can we talk about how gorgeous Keri looked in her dress?
(Thanks to Liz for the first photo and to Mrs. Rizzo for the candid second snap!)

Never in a million years did I think I’d be wearing jeans and a blazer in the middle of July sans being in an air-conditioned building. But thanks to the summer version of the polar vortex, this outfit happened. I’ll take a few 60-degree July days that allow me to wear jeans any day!
How was your weekend? Mine was filled with wedding activities (my cousin got married in a beautiful ceremony on Saturday) and catching up with friends and family. I’m off to Chicago tomorrow for wedding number two!

Oh-so happy Friday! I’m ready for the weekend to be here and to have a few days off to spend time with family and friends (hello, wedding weekend).
I tried to pack *relatively* light for my two-week trip; I’ve discovered the key to packing lighter than normal is to pack neutrals. Everything goes together so well that I don’t feel the need to throw in those extra shirts or that additional pair of jeans. Leopard is a neutral to me, and with the forecast so cool this week, I knew I’d have the opportunity to wear these pants a few times.
