Memo 154: Server Simplicity

Little known fact about me: I was in the restaurant service industry for roughly three years while I was in college and a year after I graduated. So, I have a great appreciation for the dining experience and amazing service. I was pretty good if I may toot my own horn. Toot Toot!

This look is a nod to my serving days.

Memo 153: Floral Transparency

Well, what do ya' know. Florals are in this season and guess who already had some floral in her closet?
That's why it's so hard for me to "clean" out my closet. These trends come back over and over again!

My rule of thumb for a clothing purge is to only let go of the items that no longer fit and are worn out. Even some worn pieces can be revived. Remember that go to tailor and shoe cobbler that you have on speed dial? Yeah, use them.

Other than that, most things stay in the closet to be loved on just one more time.

Memo 152: An Oxford Kind of Day

Flat shoes are a must during anybody's fashion week. I was over heels by day two of NYFW. These Pour La Victoire Oxford were a very stylish and comfortable option. 

These little Madewell black lace shorts paired with this J.Crew bib shirt and Zara leather sleeved blazer felt a little, dare I say, naughty. The lace peeking through at the bottom of the shirt are a nice unexpected surprise.

Whenever lingerie inspired pieces are worn in public, there's always an air of sexy and I like it!
