the fine print



Shirt: Zara (similar style here); Skirt: Zara; Jacket: No label, via Ambiance in SF; Shoes: Gucci (love this pair); Bag: Zara; Sunglasses: House of Harlow; Jewelry: Gap leather bracelet worn as a choker (similar style here), J. Crew chain bracelet, Michael Kors watch

Hitting the ground running this week -- in heels no less -- so for the next coule of days, I'm all about some of my basics mixed and matched. That means a lot of silk button front blouses and pencil skirts. But that doesn't mean we can't play around with some patterns, right? Gotta keep things interesting, after all!

Hope you're all having a fabulous week so far!
