A few years ago in grad school, I remarked to a girlfriend that I always admired her style. It was simple but not bland and always on point. Yet there was always something bubbly about her. She remarked, that she based most of her wardrobe around black and white with pops of color here and there. So, this is my — years later — interpretation of my friend and colleague, J. Black, white, and one eye opening shock of something metallic.

I’ve been itching to wear these rose gold jeans since Christmas when I bought them on a mega sale. And with spring finally here, I had to break out the pink gold.¬†

Last month, I went on my first “business” trip for my job - an English teacher conference in Albany. It was great to meet other English teachers, learn new tips and techniques, and of course get away for a little while. This is what I wore to a luncheon reception.

Do I even need to talk about Valentino? Of course anything light, airy, black AND with sequins is a definite yes. Oh, and those Vince Camuto heels? They’re so comfortable and I could wear them for hours.

Flats: Dolce Vita
Necklace: H&M

This is my version of a lazy day. The perfect cropped blazer and smoking slippers. The lovely folks at Sugar Lips sent me this cute peplum corset top and I was a wee bit scared to try it. Something that accentuates the hips? On me? An already hip endowed gal? We know how this story should go. I paired the pastel top with a standard blazer and I was pleasantly surprised.

I’m back in my signature black for the Scottish Week Reception. I decided that sequins can do no wrong and combining that with some play on various textures, my all black ensemble didn’t fall into a sea of drab.

Big thanks to Lindsay for snapping these shots of my outfit.








Are your skinny jeans not calf-clenching enough? J Brand answered all of our prayers with their latest release (and partnership with Hussein Chalayan) with the “Legging” jean. This gazelle-gamine legwear is priced at $249. Myself? I live in skinny jeans. Flares never did it for me. Tucking slim legs into boots, folding over old sneakers and pretty little ballet flats was always more me. Maybe it stems back from my teenage angst obsession with punk rock and Debbie Harry and the Ramones’s painted on denim. The look always stuck for me. And baby, I ain’t gonna give it up.
