I had one of those glorious weekends that felt like the perfect combination of  relaxation, getting things done and fun with friends. On Saturday evening I attended an intimate rooftop cocktail and dinner party in honor of a friends birthday (it’s practically summer here in SF) in this outfit. It felt like the perfect combination of relaxed and glamorous, which is exactly the way I wanted to look and feel on an evening that ended with everyone lounging in the living room carpet with bottles of wine. Plus, you know how I feel about bright pink ♥

Hope you all had similarly lovely weekends! Viva la Indian Winter.

A dash of lemon yellow adds just the right amount of optimism to a January ensemble ♥ How adorable is this Old Navy striped midi skirt (came with a belt, and I removed it). A total score .

Happy Happy Friday everyone! Thanks for all of your kind words about my Glitter Guide ‘How To’ feature! I am so glad you all liked it and found it helpful! I am to please afterall!

layer on

Did you see my post on the Glitter Guide today on how to layer multiple necklaces? I was so thrilled to put it together because layering necklaces up is something of a life passion of mine. And I take it very seriously. Like art form seriously. uh huh. You’ve seen these all before but here’s a recap of my favorite layered looks from this blog.

I hope the GG post inspires you to layer your necklaces up to create a cool and unique look! Please tweet for facebook me images so I can see your look! ♥♥

working girl

H&M dress (similar here), Sanctuary vest, BR Karlie briefcase bag, Frye boots, Chan Luu & c/o Baublebar bracelets, Topshop earrings

Give me a briefcase-esque bag and a tie front shirt dress and suddenly I feel all professional. Of course, I must funk it up with some faux fur, because that’s just who I am.

“You can bend the rules plenty once you get to the top, but not while you’re trying to get there. And if you’re someone like me, you can’t get there without bending the rules.” -Tess McGill, Working Girl 1988

Rodarte for Opening Ceremony sweatshirt, BR skirt, Frye heels, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Clutch, c/o Baublebar cuff, NARS ‘Funny Face’ lipstick

I don’t know what happened this morning, but when I was putting this outfit together things took a serious turn into schoolgirl land, and I went for it. I like to call it an ode to. Complete with my comfiest not-quite-couture sweatshirt I got at Opening Ceremony in New York and my brightest of pink lipsticks because I am so over winterfied Burgundy lips. Bring on the Spring I say.

sass in boots

BR Sweater dress, J. Crew belt, Elizabeth & James boots, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Clutch, Alexis Bittar pink bracelet & Marc by Marc Jacobs watch

This is one of those outfits I threw on it a rush out the door in the morning. All black and a simple sophisticated dress is my go-to for mornings like these, and this time I decided to throw in a little P.O.C. (that’s pop of color for those not in the know) neon pink and my new to me (consignment steal!) Elizabeth & James serious made-for-walkin’ boots. This simple look ended up being a total hit at the office, with ‘Sass’ becoming my nickname for the day. I think it was the boots…

Happy Weekend!
