Dress Well: Tied in a Bow

J. Crew dress (old), Rebecca Minkoff sandals, J. Crew bracelet, Old necklace, Rebecca Minkoff bag

I'd like to introduce you to my new favorite outfit. Now that I work down in the sunny peninsula, I get to break out a dress every now and then. Although I generally think that bows can look a bit juvenile on me, apparently I'm okay with wearing them en masse.









Does everyone have exciting weekend plans? I'll tell you what my weekend plans are: exactly nothing. I've been behind on sleep for about two weeks now, and with my family coming to visit next weekend and us headed out to Florida three weekends from now, I'm more than happy to take this opportunity to spend an entire weekend relaxing, reading, cleaning up around the house, and possibly playing some chess (fun times ahead!).

I hope your plans are as fun as mine. Happy Friday!

Dress Well: Bows With An Edge

J. Crew dress (sold out; love this one), Old tights (similar), Rag & Bone booties, J. Crew bracelet, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Tory Burch sunglasses (similar)

When I asked for this dress for Christmas, I figured it would become one of my "Mary Poppins" outfits (the boys that I work with have coined that term for a certain genre of my outfits - I've decided to embrace it). The cut and print of this dress would not look out of place on a preschooler (or a nanny). However, I've discovered that my favorite way to wear this dress is with my black leather booties and chunky jewelry. Somehow, when blended with those accessories, this dress comes to look almost edgy. I certainly didn't think that was possible. Or maybe I just have a very generous definition of edgy.







Also, these pictures were taken on my rooftop. As in it's a 10-second trip for me to get to a deck with a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. How amazing is that? Don't you want to come visit me now?


And finally, a little bit of humor to send us into our weekends: please appreciate how the picture above makes it look like I have one leg (with a wrong-sided foot). I've decided that this look isn't an accident, it's a fashion statement.

Have a great weekend!
