(See how I wore April’s staple here and here.) My polka dot pants are meant to be mixed with other patterns. Tweed, stripes and polka dots are such a happy combo, especially with just a hint of mint at the neckline. An easy way to make this work-friendly would be to pair it with a sky-high pair of pointy heels; wouldn’t silver be amazing?

Happy Monday! The weekends always fly by way too quickly, don’t they? Even though it is the second week of April and technically, I should have done this post last week, I didn’t get the chance to photograph wearing my staple of the year last week. So I re-wore it yet again this week, this time with a hot pink blouse and my ultimate staple — my military-esque jacket. So far, this is my favorite way I’ve worn my staple of the year. (See January, February and March.) We had beautiful, 70-degree weather this weekend, and I couldn’t resist pulling out my wedges and sandals. Premature? Perhaps. But I like to live in the moment, and the moment was telling me wedges were the way to go.

When I wake up, open my closet doors and think, I don’t have anything to wear, hindsight tells me I’m crazy because I have more than enough clothes. But sometimes, I need inspiration. Sometimes, I need to go with my gut, which says, Let’s do something easy today. My easy, no-fails are my chambray blouse, ankle boots, and an anorak. I wanted a bit of spring, so this floral blouse was definitely called for.
Happy weekend! My bestie and I are trying out a new sushi place tonight, thanks to Groupon. I’m ready for the weekend! How about you?

First, I’d like to thank my mother for getting me this peplum-inspired jacket for Christmas a few years ago. I mean, who’d have thought it’d be an essential wardrobe staple later? When paired with a very 70s print blouse (much like those seen on the Prada and Miu Miu fall runways), it all becomes the ideal mix of vintage meets modern.
Second, I’d like to thank Almay for making me try something I thought I’d never try: purple (or, really, eggplant) eyeshadow. Because of my blue eyes, I tend to stick with brown, gold, and coppery eyeshadows, but after I received an Almay Wake-Up Eyeshadow + Primer in Exhilarate, I decided that it’d be worth stepping out of my comfort zone. The primer works wonderfully, and the colors are rich and sparkly, which is something I always love in eyeshadows.
To get my look, I used the brown shade to cover the majority of my lids, the eggplant shade in my creases to give some depth to my eyes, and the pale, pale purple along my brow bone to give some highlighting action. Then I lined my upper lids with brown eye pencil and used a small angle brush to layer the eggplant shade over that liner. P.S. I was smiling during the close-up of my eyelid, which is why it looks like the crinkly eyelid of a 90-year-old.

For me, there’s nothing quite like spending the entire three-day weekend in jeans and a T-shirt (or shorts, for part of it). The days have been entirely too muggy for the beginning of September, so yesterday I spent most of the day inside cleaning out my closet in preparation for the big swap between warmer-weather clothes and cooler-weather clothes. Two big garbage bags later, and my closet is organized and I’m about to restock Goodwill for a week. Here’s the breakdown:
New York Fashion Week is here, and I’m so excited to keep up via blogs and Twitter! I love seeing updates from the runway, and because I won’t be in class this year, I’ll be able to stream and listen to both the IFB conference and Lucky FABB. Let the NYFW social media storm begin!
