office refresh

with the last summer vacation behind me, i’ve gone full force into work mode. unfortunately, my office wardrobe needs a little catching up– i caught my reflection in the glass today and realize the shirt i was wearing had not only a coffee stain from the last time I wore it, but also had strings fraying at the hem (whoops). thankfully i perused the web and found a plethora of freshness to spiffy up my 9-5 self; all at a variety of prices. i might not even mind the return to cubicle life if it means i get to wear these!

summer calling

ring ring, summer here. this weekend new york officially became the sweaty steampot it can be (a season officially marked once the sidewalk garbage starts to smell- blech). this is actually happy news for a summer girl like me, as I for one would rather be sweating than freezing in most scenarios.
