Blush Blazer

Club Monaco blazer (old) // Banana Republic dress (old) // Sam Edelman pumps (on sale!)

Wearing pink to the office without having a full blown Elle Woods moment is all about the shade of pink and what other colors you pair it with. Not that there's anything wrong with having a full blown Elle Woods moment (except if your co-workers are allergic to your purse Chihuahua). A very soft muted blush pink is my shade of choice paired with either black or burgundy. My Club Monaco blush blazer gets a ton of mileage; it's such an easy way to punch up an all black work ensemble.

Fringe and Florals with Nordstrom Rack

 I love transitioning into fall fashion, pairing fall staples like moto jackets, scarves, boots and tights with skirts and dresses. I picked up this mini dress and fringe moto jacket at the store opening of Nordstrom Rack in Emeryville, which has a great selection of fall staples at incredible prices (I also had to snag this similar camel version of my jacket since it was such a steal!) The dark florals and jacket lend fall vibes to this 70's inspired look. Fringe always adds a whimsical element to an outfit, but please heed my warning that extreme caution must be taken when eating in fringe sleeves. My post-shoot McDonald's pig-out may or may not have resulted in ketchup-dipped suede fringe (not pictured).

A big thanks to Nordstrom Rack for sponsoring this post. All opinions and advice regarding dining in fringe sleeves are my own.

Maison Scotch scarf // Rag and Bone denim // J.Crew blazer // Madewell shirt // Dior sunglasses // Vince Camuto heels (similar) // Daniel Wellington watch c/o // Matine clutch c/o

This Maison Scotch bandana print scarf brings me back to my elementary school cowgirl phase, the catalyst of which was The Adventures of Mary Kate and Ashley: The Case of the Logical i Ranch. Back in the day, I paired my bandana with a suede fringe vest and skirt set and pink glitter cowboy boots. This look is a slightly more subtle nod to my favorite musical mystery, pairing my bandana with distressed Rag & Bone denim and a J.Crew schoolboy blazer.
