this easter weekend went by so fast it felt like one big blur. there was at least three nursery runs made over the course of two days. potting soil, shepherd hooks, bird feeders, bird food, and mr. style’s favorite gadget, solar lights all made their way into our cart then into the garden. the patio might, just might be finished. even if a few things still need to be tweaked, i’m pooped, so that’s that for the time being. and since we were taking it easy today why not have the photo shoot in our own backyard? works for me.

today’s ootd is nine-to-five chic with a modern twist. if you watched my video yesterday, perhaps you noticed this striped dress. it’s perfect for spring/summer, but it’s short. not too short for the weekend, but too short for the office. but what happens when i pop it over a pair of on-trend cropped pants? instant office glam! a structured handbag and pointy-toed pumps keep the ootd grounded but fresh.

style tip: pair classic essentials with trendy items for a modern classic look.

okay, ladies, let’s get this week started!

labels: pants Talbots; dress Ralph Lauren; handbag Talbots (old, similar here); shoes Gucci (old, similar here and here)
