Lace + Mustard and Poppy Jeans

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

I don't really have any inspiring stories, funny moments or wise (maybe?) words today, just a couple of outfits that brightened my week (all photos by my lovely sister).

Numero uno: Lace + Mustard

I've always loved lace (my wedding dress was all lace), so I'm thrilled that lace is supposed to be huge for spring. I'm all over it.

This mustard skirt is one of my favorite things to wear to work since it's not-your-average neutral pencil skirt. and I love this lace shirt (a J. Crew Factory sale find last year). Originally I had a mint cardi on too (mint and mustard!) but my sister convinced me that simplicity was better (and she was right).

Necklace: Ann Taylor Loft
Top: J. Crew Factory (old), similar here and here
Skirt: J. Crew (old), similar here and here
Shoes: Madewell

Numero dos: Poppy jeans + stripes

Like the striped dress, this is another 'cheater' outfit since I'm definitely not wearing this today on my general surgery rotation (and again, you probably don't want to see my OR scrubs and stylin' goggles/booties). But I will hopefully be wearing it this weekend (no call!) 

I wasn't so sure about the colored jean trend at first, but Kate Middleton convinced me: 
Love her. And now I want them in every color: I definitely came home with this pair from Target, but they're going back since it just doesn't make sense for me to have multiple pairs of colored jeans that I can't wear to the hospital (or in the OR).

Scarf: FashionABLE (love their mission)
Top: Forever 21
Colored jeans in Poppy: J. Crew Factory (on sale!)
Boots: Famous Footwear (old) but this year's version

Have a lovely Wednesday!
