Everyday Favorites.

I rarely change my earrings. If I find something I love, it stays in there until a special event or until something inspires me to change it--this could literally mean months or even years.

When I came across these Gabriela Artigas Infinite Tusk earrings, I was completely fascinated by their uniqueness. I loved the simplicity--they are delicate but still a little edgy. When Shopbop's F&F rolled around a few weeks back, I decided to give them a try, and they haven't left my ears since!

Suit styling.

It's been quite a while since I posted an outfit involving a full suit, so I decided that maybe it was time for another as I'm sure a few of my readers work in a professional setting require a full suit every so often (myself included), but the environment isn't so conservative that we can't play around with it a little bit.

BTW, pardon my sickly looking myself. I was still not feeling that well when I took these photos.




Blazer: Theory Lanai Blazer (Black).
Trousers: Theory Max C Trousers (Black).
Shoes: LAUREN by Ralph Lauren Adena Pumps (Black).
Rings: Aldo (Gold).
Belt: Leather Obi belt (Black)(similar).

Here, I used my well-loved Theory Lanai blazer and belted it with a leather obi belt. This jacket/belt combination of course works with any bottoms you see fit--skirts, pants, denim, etc. I mean, can you imagine how amazing this would be with leather pants? This may be an upcoming post!

A variety of blazer cuts work, however, I think this jacket works particularly well with the cinched belt because of the upside-down v-cut of the blazer.  Definitely experiment!

Closet Craving: Theory Varlene Jacket.

     So I'm a little behind on my posts. I actually went on vacation a few weeks ago and of course, due to the change in temperature, my immune system decided to go on strike and it allow unwanted viruses into my body. I'm not horribly ill, but I'm definitely not 100%. So between the vacation and feeling a bit under the weather, I am lacking posts.

     However, having been working from home the last day and a half and therefore having more time to surf the interwebs, I have a found something today that caught my eye. I've been looking for a double-breasted jacket for some time now, but as a petite, they tend to be too overwhelming. When I saw this Theory Varlene jacket, my interest was immediately peaked. 

Theory Varlene Jacket in Edition, $395
It's slightly cropped style may lend itself to petite frames. It does not have a lapel, however. I haven't decided if that bothers me or not, but I'm definitely willing to find out! Find it here on Theory.com.
