Raw Hem Denim

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Outfit deets:
* Ashley B jacket which you've seen with all grey, with the same scarf and an old outfit I would still wear & at the first concert I went to with my guy.
* Smart Set t-shirt.
* Bongo denim (old) which you've seen on the weekend & if you'd like, here is an Instagram shot of the distressing.
* Converse shoes.
* Accessories: G21 (Walmart) sunnies & Club Monaco scarf.

These shoes have been on serious lock since we returned from Punta Cana and the weather has drastically warmed.  I can't get enough of these and being able to wear them elsewhere than in the condo.  I took them for a test drive while shopping on Monday and felt cool, chic and comfortable--perhaps the magical three C's for shopping.

Additionally, I ripped up these jeans myself last summer and had initially cut slits at the bottom inner hem, since they were extra long.  However, the length was off and they weren't super tight at the ankles so they puffed when tucked into booties and didn't sit right with heels.  

Then, lightbulb moment!  

I chopped them off at the ankle--my preferred length for skinnies--to join the raw hem denim movement and haven't looked back.  I'm so pleased with how they turned out.  See the full 'steps' on my Facebook page.

Casual vs. Chic | One Outfit, Two Ways

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Outfit deets:
* La Classe Couture faux leather jacket, my black go-to, which you've seen with a navy dress & a long time ago when I used to belt everything.
* Seduction denim (old).
* Sneakers:  Material Girl (last summer)  |  Heels:  Aldo (new!).
* Accessories:  Club Monaco scarf, Aldo clutch, Phillip Lim for Target carryall, Suzy Shier necklace (new!) & Gucci shades.

I'm bringing you two looks today--one casual and one dressed up, using the same base of a leather jacket, denim & a tee.

The first look is one I would wear in the evening to grab Pho with my guy or on weekends while running errands.  While I love heels, I've always held a soft spot for skate shoes and these have a chic twist.  

The second look is more dressed up, I ditched the scarf in lieu of a statement necklace, threw on heels and added a clutch; definitely something I would wear out for date night or to meet up with girlfriends.

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, April 21, 2014

On Thursday after work I met with Serena and we shot some outfits (will be sharing a cool two-ways to wear post tomorrow) before I retreated home to take care of a sick boyfriend.

I made Thai chicken lettuce wraps--again--for myself and...

...picked up pizza later on for my guy.

Vacation Outfits

Outfit deets:
* Forever 21 chiffon top (old) with Old Navy cami underneath.

Punta Cana Photo Diary

Friday, April 18, 2014

Today I'm sharing some photos from the real camera, but to be honest, between snapping photos on both our phones, and not wanting to lug the 'real camera' around all the time, I feel the majority of my photos were taken on my phone.  As an added bonus they are easily uploaded to Instagram and Facebook and isn't that more fun?  

Still, I wanted to try and get some good shots we will have forever, and so, with that said, here are some that you haven't seen, of our week in Punta Cana...
