mint and gold

May 27th, 2013


I took these photos a few weeks ago, and I can’t believe that it’s already too hot for this outfit in Houston!  I’m hoping it will cool down a little before the long, brutal summer hits, but I’ve definitely learned that a Texas summer can be unpredictable, and above all else — never expect it to be anything but HOT.  At the very least, I’m excited to finally go in our pool! 

It’s a bummer because this outfit is full of my favorite pieces!  This blazer is from Zara last spring, and I’ve probably worn it 100 times in the last year — it’s at least a once-a-week staple for work!  I love putting it over a black dress for a pop of color that’s still office-appropriate. 

And I have to tell you guys about this necklace!  It’s from the gorgeous designer Lagi Nadeau — I’ve known Lagi since I lived in NY, and I’ve loved following her career!  She now has her own ready to wear line, and one of her pieces was in the looks that I styled for the Cotton 24 Hour Runway Show — it was totally gorgeous and a perfect fit for the show!  One of my favorite things about blogging is getting to know up and coming designers and helping to spread the word — you guys should definitely check her out!

Zara blazer (similar), gifted Joe’s Jeans, gifted Lagi Nadeau necklace, Jimmy Choo Abel pumps.

    I just love the color of that blazer! And those jeans are perfect!
    We’re still cold up here on the East Coast, but it looks like today will turn out to be in the 70s, ha ha.

    I’m really loving that mint tweed. It really makes this more casual outfit sophisticated 🙂
