The Week in Outfits – 6/4/11

Theory blazer :: Theory knit vest :: Ann Taylor top :: Paige jeans (altered) :: Cole Haan shoes :: LOFT flower pin :: Chanel handbag

Ahhh…who doesn’t love three-day weekends? I popped out of bed feeling refreshed today…even my hair looks perky! I kept it in the color family, wearing nothing but reds and purples. Chanel didn’t come to work with me, but I brought her out for the photos because she goes so well.

PS…We’re giving away a $50 gift card over at Fit Review!

This blouse and necklace combination was a happy accident. When I put the blouse on my dress form to take photos last weekend, the dress form was already wearing this necklace. It was a perfect match!

I was having a very non-photogenic day for this photo shoot. Nothing was working…not my hair, not the lighting, and every pose I made just looked awkward. Finally got this kinda-sorta decent shot and gave up for the day. :P

This is the first time I’m pulling this jacket out of the closet since last summer! Can you believe it!? It’s linen, so it’s not much help during the winter, but now that the weather is warming up, it’s a perfect cover-up.

No photos from Monday because I spent a little time getting sandy at our local dog beach, and then the rest of the day was spend in pajamas. Definitely not blog-worthy.

And for those of you who like gratuitous glamor shots of Chanel…oh yes I did!

This is me playing with my camera settings and trying to be cool. :P

Have a great weekend!

    Love the red Chanel bag. Gorgeous! Also love the last shot of the bag with the purple flowers. I Cole Haan shoes and Theory should ask you to be their spokeperson! You look great as always.

      Thanks! That’s my favorite outfit out of the bunch too. I feel repeats coming on with that one!

    Lovely. Your blazers are just incredibly perfect on you!  My fave is the white one. :)

    I ADORE the Theory linen jacket you have on! (And the other blazers are classic.) Now that I’m in NYC, I feel like I need to ramp up my work wardrobe. And since I own absolutely zero blazers (mostly because I don’t want to pay $$$ for them PLUS alterations)…I really think I should at least splurge on one sometime! :D

      No blazers?! How do you survive?! Theory is probably your best bet, especially if you can find any of their shrunken fits (like the ones I have). They’re very professional looking, and a lot better quality if you do need to cough up a little something extra to get them altered. Theory outlets are fantastic, but I’ve found good deals at Bloomingdales sales as well (where I got the seersucker blazer).

  • Wow Kelly, that BR button down fits you so well! I’ve never been able to find one that fits nicely, it always looks all bunched up in the front.  You look absolutely gorgeous by the way – you seem to be more comfortable with your posing and smiling in front of the camera – your confidence it really shining through :)

      Yeah, it’s a nice fit thanks to the buttons that run down the back. I don’t usually have issues with bunching in front…but I’m a pro at finding button downs that bunch around my shoulders and upper back thanks to the waist being too low for me. Annoying!

      Thank you for the kind words! I’m actually completely awful at being photographed & have always dreaded the task (hense all those headless photos just a year ago). Doing these daily photos have helped me loosen up in front of the camera, which is nice. :P
