The pager was going off non-stop last weekend. It was a storm of emergencies and disasters and there seemed to be no end in sight. Fortunately, my black cloud of call finally cleared -- just in time for me to make it to a dinner date I had ambitiously planned with friends earlier in the week. With only 30 minutes to get ready before the sun set, I rushed home and wrestled my hair into a sloppy up-do, slapped on some makeup, and threw together this outfit. Sarah and I ran up to the rooftop to capture these shots before we lost daylight.
I love to wear color but when I'm in a hurry, blindly grabbing some neutral pieces from my closet usually results in a somewhat put-together outfit without requiring too much effort.
Dress: Theory. Blazer: Gibson (similar here and here). Purse: Chanel Medium Flap Bag. Suede ankle boots: Adrienne Vittadini. Earrings: gift from Mr. J. Necklace: old (purchased from here when I lived in Denver)
My favorite dish of the night at Laurel Hardware -- the butterscotch budino with granola. Paired with some French press coffee and I was in heaven...
