Soleri Sunset

IMG_5199 Another day, another dollar, another outfit. I've been wanting to wear this dress to work many times recently, but hesitated because the back has a large cutout. Today I threw on this oversized lace cardigan that I am obsessed with and was set! I thought that the two flowy pieces wouldn't work together, but the slight structure of lace material actually gives it some shape. As a bonus, it keeps me warm in my cold office! I finished off the look with a statement necklace, and then some sandals to keep look a little more summery and less serious.

I was out shopping today with my mom and we stopped on this great bridge over the canal in Scottsdale. The large silver structure you can see in the background is a bridge by Paolo Soleri. I used to think the design was an eyesore, but now it is growing on me. Soleri was a fascinating architect that recently passed away, and now I appreciate having a piece of his work so close to my home!

If Work Permits

IMG_4226 This lace tee is coming through for me again, making all of my summer dresses work appropriate. I first tried it out by layering and knotting the tee over a floral dress for a summer look, but I like it over this striped dress even more. (Which is pretty impressive because I really liked that first combo!) I then added my all-black essentials, grabbed my laptop and drawing tube, and was out the door!

I wanted to share a small preview of some of the things I have been doing during my work day. Assisting an architect with floorplans and planning out a subdivision are what's in store right now. I love that when I go to work I have some things I am consistently working on, but also new information and projects pop up every day!

Golden Geometrics

IMG_1913 Today I almost decided to be lazy and throw on this top with a pair of cutoffs and sandals, but then thought, why not dress up? This top looks way cuter when mixed with a neutral skater skirt anyway! Because of the earthy tones, I added all of my rose gold jewelry to compliment the colors. I finished the look with my lace up sandals. These are my favorite shoes I own, but I've been wearing them less lately to make sure they last longer--I would hate to retire them one day!

I'm off to go study for a midterm and work on some floor plans at my favorite coffee shop (which happens to serve my favorite veggie sandwich as well, yum!) Nothing like a good environment to get your through some hard work!

OOTD_97 Final Review

DSC_1172 Today was my final review for studio. I can't believe how fast this quarter has gone, but I think it's because I really enjoyed what I was learning and working on all quarter. I'm going to share more about my project this week, but for now, this is the outfit I wore!

I am really liking how this rose gold necklace adds something extra to an all black outfit. I pulled out my leather moto jacket, but layered a linen moto underneath so I would still have the look even if I got warm and took off my jacket. A little double layering action!
