One of my least desirable talents is the ability to hide things from myself. This talent is showcased too often than I’d like to admit, and this suede and leather Zara skirt is evidence. I purchased my skirt last fall, and somehow it landed in the black hole that doubled as my closet. Our recent move forced me into a search and rescue operation that hailed this find. I’m confident this article of clothing was relieved to finally have its price tag removed and feel loved on a cool fall day.

I love Saturdays when we’re home with few plans. We seem to stay on the go, which is also fun, but there’s something to be said about days when you can take your time reading the WSJ, drink multiple cups of coffee and enjoy a casual breakfast at the bakery.

Truth: this outfit was inspired by the popular Netfilx series Orange is the New Black. It’s a fun twist on a show that’s just a little too serious for me.

Simple Statement

My workday calls for conservative dress, so getting it right takes extreme balance. The LBD is a staple in my closet, as are accessories in fun prints like the leopard belt here or a punch of red lipstick. I find that some of the simplest pieces, combined together can make the perfect statement of “responsible, hard worker who loves to squeeze in a bit of fun.” Besides, I am only 29 (at least for another month)!
