    I enjoyed a quick trip to Dallas and back, with a lot of fun packed in. I always regret leaving without seeing more of the city, but the parts I do see, I really enjoy…

vince-camuto-macys-1vince-camuto-macys-2vince-camuto-macys-3 Good morning and happy Wednesday! I’m in a few workwear essentials I recently picked up at Macy’s. Slim ankle trousers (which are my favorite classic trouser style), a white blouse (this one has a lovely cutout detail), and a long sleeveless blazer (which is an easy way to make your outfit look both polished and modern). Classic, polished and modern! Hope you’re having a great week so far!


Blouse – Vince Camuto (here | similar here without the cutouts)
Trousers – Vince Camuto (here | also tried on this straight leg version which fit great too)
Vest – Vince Camuto (here | also in a shorter version here)
Sandals (similar here)

Last Photos from London

London-1London-3London-2London-5London-4London-6London-7 We’ve been home a week and I’ve finally had time to look through all of my sightseeing photos from London. Sharing a few last snapshots – had such a great time exploring. Vacations have always tended to be beach-oriented for me, but over the last year or two I’ve really come to appreciate the busy city trip too. What’s next? Tokyo and Kyoto. But we have plenty of time to plan: we’re heading there later this year!

Thank you so much for visiting and hope you have a lovely day!

Denim & Sneakers

denim-on-denim-mgemi-sneakers-2denim-on-denim-mgemi-sneakers-1denim-on-denim-mgemi-sneakers-4denim-on-denim-mgemi-sneakers-3 Last week I packed my bags full of flats and sneakers (including this M.Gemi pair) and spent a week walking everywhere as we explored London. We took in some art (at both the Tate Modern and the British Museum), we experienced some neighborhood life (Notting Hill, Soho, Belgravia), we treated our tastebuds well (Chutney Mary and Amaya for example), and we did a few of the touristy things too (Buckingham Palace, Parliament, view from the Shard). I’m so glad I had these comfy sneakers to take me from place to place, because although my legs were tired and achy at the end of the day, my feet felt great!

I’ve partnered with M.Gemi this month to share their newest May arrivals (I most recently bought this pair and can’t wait to wear them). Sharing more of my picks below, plus use this link to get $40 off your order!
