Outfit Post: A Milly Moment * Part I

So yesterday was the first day of Spring but judging from the temperatures outside, I’m not buying it.

That being said, with the first day of Spring comes the official countdown to the Kentucky Derby. We’re down to 44 days until the most exciting two minutes in sports so it’s definitely time to start thinking about what to wear to the races. I’ve got a few Derby style posts up my sleeve but after putting on this Milly floral number, I’ve already started planning my Derby outfit around it.

Obviously, these pictures had to be saved for inside since it is freaking freezing out now but I’m hoping for a bright, sunny day in May to wear this with a fun fascinator – I’m thinking something with purple feathers for sure.

Outfit Post: The Color Purple

If my life had a uniform, this would be it. Skinny pants, silk blouse and blazer. It’s my go-to. But since I know uniforms can get boring, I try to add in new elements to this standard look to make it a little more exciting. Enter these purple pants.

I picked them up from the dry cleaners and knew that they were destined for another Lucky Magazine outfit inspiration post (Are you all getting tired of these yet? Hopefully not, we’re only half way through the month. I promise to use new sources of inspiration next week!). I used a little from each of these looks to pull together this look.

Also, I switched it up with some {unplanned} indoor pictures. I had kind of given up on taking pictures of this look but after my coffee date with the adorable Beth of seersucker + saddles (more on that below), she convinced me to make it happen. Making it happen meant settling for some indoor pics taken by Drew. So enjoy the look at my little closet nook!

p.s. – Meeting Beth was like meeting a long-lost friend. After following her blog since shortly after she launched it last Spring and corresponding back and forth, I felt like I already knew her but woah was that magnified on our little blogging date. I’m an even bigger fan and I’m so excited about some projects we want to start collaborating on. Meeting really interesting and cool people like her are one of my favorite things about running this little side project. Sorry for gushing but I couldn’t help it! If you haven’t checked out her blog, you need to.

Outfit Post: Power of Purple

So I’m pretty bummed. I’m kind of an idiot and semi-ruined my nice camera. You’re probably thinking right now, “Semi-ruined? What the what does that mean?” Well, a couple weeks ago I put a bottled water in my bag and didn’t realize the top wasn’t screwed on all the way. Before I knew it, my bag – including my camera – was soaked. Thankfully, my camera dried out and started working again. After jumping for joy, I realized that there was still an issue with the automatic focus. Alas, that is why my pictures are a little blurry. I’m going to try and get this fixed stat but in the mean time, my pictures won’t be at their best and I’ll be using my point-and-shoot for the time being. Woof.

Anyways, enough of that. I wore this outfit last week to work/running around to meetings. Apologies for the mildly woofy ponytail but I loved the color of the pants & shoes together and had to share.
