weather alert, weather alert. it’s been three whole days since we’ve seen rain in this neck of the woods! i just might have to throw a party! it’s been cloudy and overcast but no rain. which means we are slowly starting our backyard landscape renovation. the first step, tree removal. slowly but surely changes are being made to the inside and outside of our home. there will be future blog posts dedicated to the transformation once completed. two rooms are 90% complete: what is now called the YouTube/study and the kitchen. but back to our regularly scheduled program.

when the weather heats up, it’s time to haul out my jean skirts. while a white denim pencil skirt is hanging in my closet last seen here and here there’s been a recent addition with this cute a-line with a button front. plus, there are patch pockets on the front and back to add some character.

and who can resist a skirt with pockets?! “not i,” said the little red hen. this particular skirt was purchased at my local j.crew mercantile store. but this skirt from nordstrom is comparable.

it looks as if i can’t resist these animal print sling-backs purchased from j.crew last summer. similar ones here and here. the gold lucite heel and cap toe really make these shoes sing.

i added a belt with gold grommets for a little extra zing. similar here and here.

the utter simplicity of this black and white color scheme is what makes this ootd timeless and classic. but the belt, slingbacks, and seed bead earrings keep it looking fresh and modern.

a black bateau neck tee is also a favorite silhouette of mine. talbots always have a fantastic selection of staples like this. if there’s a sale, i’ll swoop in and stock up.

mr. style couldn’t resist this photo setting and asked me to strike a pose (maybe several). and i happily obliged as i’m pretty stoked it’s hump day!  we’re half-way through the week, ladies.
