Dress Well: To the Max

Well, you've seen it before and you'll see it again - I'm finally jumping on a bandwagon that's at least a year old. One year ago I was saying NO WAY to anything and everything maxi. However, when I spotted this soft, striped, super inexpensive dress at Old Navy, I thought it was maybe time to dip a toe into the trend. Turns out I should have jumped in earlier - how great would this dress have been when we were on the beach back in January?

DSC_3863I apologize for my long hiatus this week! Work has been crazy, and I've just been generally slow to adjust back to a normal schedule following our trip to Cincinnati last weekend. Which, by the way, was amazing. I enjoyed every single second we spent celebrating our friends' beautiful wedding and wonderful (new!) marriage. I'm looking forward to celebrating many more happy unions over the next couple years.

Back at you tomorrow (hopefully). I mean, we just finished Orange is the New Black and Fargo, so do I really have an excuse?

Have a wonderful Thursday.

Dress Well: Tweed Sleeves

J. Crew shirt, Current/Elliot jeans, Madewell booties, Madewell necklace. ?? Bracelet (gift from my sister-in-law!), All Saints leather jacket

Remember when I wished for this top back when I was making my birthday list? Well, over Christmas, Santa (ahem...my mom) checked it off my list! Tops that draw attention to the shoulders tend to look strange on me (because my shoulders are relatively wide), but something about the geometry of how the sleeves are cut on this top just works.

I feel like I should have something interesting to share from my life here...but I don't. My days have pretty much solely consisted of work, work, working and then coming home and immediately falling asleep. I'm still struggling to get off of Virgin Islands time and back onto San Francisco time. Which is a bummer, because my narcolepsy is making it very difficult for me to make any headway on the most recent episodes of Downton Abbey. First world problems? Definitely.
