Signal Antennae

I’ve been distracted for the past few weeks looking for a new place to live.  Well, guess what?  Moustache Man and I begrudgingly trekked to the zillionth apartment today and  it’s THE one!  Everything just fell into place: we knew immediately when we walked in the door, the landlord loved us (or rather just MM) and we got approved the same day.  It is such a  relief to know where we’re going at the end of the month.  I’ll be a bit antsy until we get settled, but we are homeless no more!

This is the second time I’ve belted my Rachel Comey top.  Here’s the first.  I think it flows quite nicely over my high-waisted booty shorts (whilst hiding some of the booty).  The browns of my belt and boots don’t match, but surprisingly I don’t mind.  What about you?

Out of the Office

I’ve been “out of the office” so to speak, distracted by various developments (including a new internship!), but it’s good to be back.  The kitchen cupboard is where I keep items I’ve lost interest in or don’t wear very often.  I found this Club Monaco skirt out of that pile and set up a challenge to create a business versus casual look. The skirt is a sleek, but overtly professional piece only needing a crisp white shirt and structured bag to give corporate appeal.  With the casual outfit, I perpetrated a realistic situation using the items actually worn to “the office”.  The result was a change of pumps to sandals and an unbuttoned shirt worn in cardigan fashion.  I see myself more in the laid back look.  What about you?

A Day at the Beach

Where else but California could you enjoy a beach day in December?  When you have a full day including ball play, a boardwalk stroll and meal a la side walk cafe, plan ahead.  Use accessories like shoes or jewelry pieces to upgrade your rough and tumble outfit.  And think outside of the California girl box.  Little skirts that barely cover your bottom will forever be a fashion faux pax.  Experiment with footwear and forsake the traditional flip flops for boots (not UGGs) or ballet flats.  The re-inventive results will transform you into a beach babe.
