Yellow paper and a faded picture

What I'm wearing:
*Aqua Cashmere Zip Tunic (similar here)
*Vintage Kissing Mice Belt (similar here)
*Farr West Lace Trim Half Slip (similar here)
*Black H&M Tights
*Frye Lisa T-strap Mary Janes in Black (similar here)
*J.Crew Necklace
*Rebecca Minkoff Studded Fling in Peacock (new version here)

This is a look I totally copied from my friend Linda (see here featured here). She wore a fabulous lace dress layered under a sweater. I've been on the lookout for a similar dress, but then I realized that a lace-trimmed half slip would work just as well. The annoying thing is that sometimes the slip can slip down in an awkward way (exhibit A, the photo above). But I still love the look, and will suffer through it.

I love this cozy sweater tunic, it was a Christmas gift from my mother and I've been wearing it non stop while just relaxing at home, and have worn it to work with leggings before. I think the lace slip dresses it up a little bit. I love that the lace has a floral design. It kind of has a granny feel to it and I don't mind.

Peacock is one of my favorite Rebecca Minkoff colors. When I spotted this studded clutch at a Nordstrom Rack in Chicago (where I was there for a wedding), I grabbed it right away. I like that you can tuck the chain into the clutch really easily. I even carried this to the wedding I was attending, ignoring the boring clutch I had brought with me.

I'm probably way behind everyone else, but I'm currently listening to The Civil Wars "Barton Hollow" album that was bought on a whim, and I have to say that I love it. It's a nice break to the country and pop I've been listening to lately at work. Anyone have any music recommendations? I like pretty much everything, except maybe rap.

  7. I love the belt we need a close up of that next time, it's so cute!! That clutch is so pretty I love the color and agree RM makes such a beautiful peacock color! I am a nerd and love broadway tunes I am stuck on The Lion King and Wicked right now but I do love some Black Eyed Peas when I am running!

  8. i love everything about this. great idea to wear the slip peeking out from underneath. and i love the zippers on the sweater! i have sort of a weird zipper fetish. my music preferences have been pretty retro lately - the smiths, morrissey, the sundays, and 10,000 maniacs with some mazzy star thrown in for good measure. ;) ~ susan

  9. I can't believe that clutch was at Nordstrom Rack! So jealous of that find! It looks so great paired against the feminine look of your outfit.

  10. You look great! I absolutley am in love with that bag!

  11. I need some music recommendations too! like badly. I'm going to give The Civil Wars a go. I've never heard of them, so not sure what they are like.
    Do you like Australian music? there's Angus and Julia Stone and they sound pretty folky. I recommend listening to "Big Jet Plane".
    Gosh, i love your outfit, and how you added colour with something as small as that clutch!

  12. i ammmm reallllly loving that clutch!!
