A few more pics here from my trip to Arizona a couple weeks ago! Between my real job, a few calligraphy commissions (yup, I'm accepting commissions now--so exciting!) and darkness falling early, I haven't gotten to do as many outfit posts as I would like recently. I'm hoping I can make them more frequent in the coming months.

I wanted to let all of you know that I'm so thankful for all the support and love you've given me over the past two years. It has been wonderful to have this blog grow, and to get to know so many lovely bloggers, readers, and new friends. I hope all of you have a happy Thanksgiving!

I took a little trip to Arizona over the holiday weekend and enjoyed some summery weather and sunshine for a few days. It was nice to relax a bit and visit with some old friends! I wore this ensemble for an evening out--it was just right for a warm November evening.

Work Outfit: It's a Wrap

BCBG Wrap Dress

Wrap Dress for Work

Rebecca Minkoff MAB Mini
Dress: BCBG (very similar here by DVF or BCBG current version here) | Shoes: L.K. Bennett | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Sunglasses: Valentino | Necklaces: Theresa Mink, Brian Gavin | Bracelets: David Yurman

The iconic wrap dress is a classic piece that can be styled to work for almost any work wardrobe--whether in casual or more professional environments. While I have to stick with traditional suits for trials, I often style my wrap dresses with blazers to make them professionally appropriate. A strategically-placed safety pin is also a good idea so the V-neck doesn't turn into a wardrobe malfunction as the day goes on!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hello, November

Fall Casual

Fall casual.

Tee: J.Crew (still available on sale in solid or stripe) | Scarf: Nordstrom BP | Jeans: BLANK_NYC | Sunglasses: Valentino | Boots: Frye (read my review) | Bag: Reed Krakoff | Bracelet: J.Crew | Rings: Vintage

The J.Crew classic Painter Boatneck Tee is one of my favorite items for fall, winter, and spring. This weekend it was warm enough for me to style my tee with a pretty mustard-and-gray scarf that was just the right weight for the weather.

Black jeans and my trusty Frye boots got me through a session at the park with the pup where all he wanted to do was run helter-skelter, kick up leaves, and bark at and chase after other dogs. I eventually passed him over to boyfriend, who was them wrangling both camera and dog, but all in all, it was fun (don't worry--boyfriend's fun came later when we stopped by a nearby brewery he likes for a few beers!).
