A Ladylike Edge

I went to meet up with some friends in San Francisco for lunch.  I wore some of my swag that I bought on my birthday shop-a-thon. 

Shirt: Milly; Pants: JBrand; Shoes: Joie; Bag: Kate Spade; Glasses: Jimmy Choo; Headband: Nordstrom
I felt very ladylike, I must say, from my headband to my black skinnies.  I had wanted this shirt from Milly for awhile, she is one of my favorite designers, so I was very excited when I found it.  The shoes are from Joie, and are totally outside of my comfort zone.  They are pointy toed loafers, but they had a little gold bow on the toe so I couldn't resist them! Then there's my Beau bag, which I bought a few months ago from Kate Spade when I had a 20% off coupon.  I had them wrap it up for me though, and I left it at my mom's house so that I could open it on my birthday.  The wait was definitely worth it! 

I love the neckline on this top. I have a total weakness for sleeveless shirts with cute collars, embellished or otherwise.  The gunmetal colored studs added an fun edge to the otherwise girly top, which is something Milly always excels at. Her designs are always feminine but perfectly balanced. 

The Beau bag! It's amazing. The black bow on the front is actually an additional pocket, which is great for keys and my phone, or whatever else I need to be able to grab quickly.  The interior is so roomy and fits all of my daily needs and then some. It will be perfect for work and travel and whenever I need a lot of space. 

Bangles: Anthropologie and Hermes; Watch: Michael Kors; Ring: Kate Spade
My arm party was fairly subdued, since I thought too many bright colors would look cheesy with the black and white ensemble. The Hermes bracelet was a gift when I graduated from college, wearing it makes me feel like some sort of starlet! I also received the Kate Spade bow ring for my birthday.  I might not be taking it off! 

This is a detail shot of the loafers.  I initially wanted the plaid version of these, because when is plaid not a good idea, but when I saw this pair in the store I fell in love.  My friends think are thinking about staging a bow intervention sometime soon though... they are definitely taking over my life! 

Until next time, 


  1. I really like your top and the Beau bag goes perfectly with your outfit!
