Couldn't go another year without documenting my Picnic Day outfit. Headed back up to my alma mater (has it really been a year??) for one day of much needed debauchery in the sun. Now it's back to that work grind!

This song has been on repeat ever since it was released 2 weeks ago. Literally, repeat.

Truth & Gold

Vrai & Oro
delicate gold jewelry

I'm sure you're all aware by now of just how much I love delicate, barely there gold jewelry (here if you need a reminder). I'm always on the lookout for brands that provide quality pieces that hold up for everyday wear, so I was excited to discover Vrai & Oro. Vanessa and Chelsea created Vrai & Oro with the mission of providing authentic fine gold and diamond pieces without the traditional retail markups, ideal for working girls like myself. They only launched two weeks ago, and I'm already obsessed with all of their timeless pieces. Eyeing this beautiful piece next... Full outfit post to come!

Love a good structured, oversized button-up that can be tucked and draped any which way. This one has a masculine fit, but the crossover pleating detail in the back brings back the femininity.

Hoping this warm spring weather will knock me out of my lethargic rut as of late— both with my sleep patterns (too much) and blogging habits (too little)- and help me find a little balance and rejuvenation. To start, a busy and fun-filled weekend coming up (don't remind me that it's only Tuesday), and some new pieces I can't wait to feature!

I love the look of a striped long sleeve peeking out from under a blazer, sweater or leather jacket— so effortlessly chic, and great for transitional dressing. If you've been following my blog for awhile, you'll know I go through a stripes phase each year. Usually it's around summer time, but I guess this year it was triggered early. I had been eyeing a couple of long sleeve options (shop below) at higher price points, so I'm so glad I found this last one in store from H&M's Spring Collection, albeit a couple of sizes too big.  

And speaking of stripes, be sure to check out my collection of stripe pieces for spring over on the Wanelo blog! A big part of why I haven't been blogging this month is because I've been busy with my new job as a content editor for Wanelo (remember I mentioned them here?)! I've been tweeting my stories, so be sure to follow along!

About a Pearl

Jeweliq pearl jewelry lookbook
Styling & Model: me for Jeweliq

This week marked the end of my time with Jeweliq where I've been doing social media and brand development since last May (I talked about it here). While I'm sad to be leaving, I'm excited to share one of the last projects I worked on, which was styling (and modeling for!) this mini lookbook with contemporary pearl pieces (so hot right now!). It's always bittersweet transitioning out of a role, but I'm excited to be taking on a brand new role elsewhere, which I'll share soon. In the meantime, have a great weekend, and shop the pearl collection here
