Short & Sweet

borrowed Nicole Miller Artelier Top | J.Crew Skirt (on sale!) | Just Fab Pumps c/o | Tom Ford Sunglasses | Phillip Lim Pashli Bag | Stila Beso Lipstick + Cargo Cosmetics Lip Gloss

I’m sure I’ll get around to telling you guys more about this summer at some point, but let me just say this… It’s been batshit crazy. I feel like I’m being pulled in 15 different directions (and it’s all in a great way!), but it’s just been a lot for me to handle and a lot for me to try and keep up with. (Hence the radio silence and lack of posts over the past few months.)

This outfit sums it up pretty well though… It wasn’t until I was looking at the photos later that I realized I forgot to put on a single piece of jewelry that day. I mean, I work for a jewelry company.. How does that even happen?

Anyway, keeping it short and sweet today, as it’s 2:00am and I have to leave my apartment at 6:45am for an early morning meeting tomorrow/today. Sleep? What’s that?

    On the rare occasion that I forget to wear jewelry, I fidget all day because it just feels off!

    That J.Crew fluted skirt is one of my favorites! Such a great basic to have in your closet you can wear year-round!
