One year ago today I did my first WordPress blog post! I wasn’t sure what would come of all this, but if nothing else, it’s something I really enjoy and hope you do too. I want to thank all of you for reading and hanging out with me and my outfits. I’ve learned so much from reading other fabulous blogs and think I’ve grown as a blogger. I’ve made blogger friends from all across the world, even if I haven’t actually met them, though I hope to one day. This year has presented me with quite a few challenges, but here I am blogging away! Thank you all!
Here’s that very first post. Enjoy!
Dressed for a special dinner in honour of anniversaries in a nice restaurant located in an old Victorian house at the shore. Black Helmut Lang jeans, black and Parker sleeveless, open back top — both from Neiman Marcus. My jacket is from J Crew a while ago. See by Chloe sandals and Marc by Marc Jacobs bag both from Bloomingdales. Cheers!
I found this amazing top in my new favourite place to shop… the Nordstrom Savvy Department of course! I got so many complements on it last night! The detail of the design on the front is the first eye-catching piece, and then you get to see the back which has adorable pleats to add even more interest. I paired it with black jeans figuring a coloured pair would detract from the design, chunky heeled sandals, and some cool but not overpowering jewellery.
We went to dinner at a cool hip restaurant not far from us and while checking in on Facebook I realized that my friends’ band was playing right down the road. The timing was perfect so we went to check it out. They’re a surf band from New Jersey and they’re so much fun. It’s feel good music that makes you think you’re sitting on a beach even if it’s the middle of February. You should check them out! You can find them here… http://thebrigantines.com/#b11/wordpress

This top has a serious neon pink pop! Love it. Naturally it’s from the Nordstrom Savvy Department. Ever since they changed over to a trendy, yet reasonable department I’m completely addicted! I figured that with such a bright top I should keep everything else simple, hence the black for the rest. I had a super busy day today so flats were required. After trying every ballet flat on the market I decided that absolutely none were as comfortable as these Prada ones. These were my first pair, but believe me, I purchased more!
