Office Poncho

Lately, I've been finding myself very cold and uncomfortable in the office, and if any of you have tried working on a computer with your jacket and scarf on, you know that it's quite inconvenient. I've been thinking about taking a blanket with me to work, but carrying that on the bus would be odd.
When I was at Target this past weekend, all problems were solved as my eyes fell upon this poncho. Warm, neutral, yet in a fun pattern, and cut so my arms could move freely... and I thought the vacuum I bought was the best purchase of that trip...

J.Crew Fall/Holiday Collection

I was really excited to see that you can pre-order items from J. Crew's Fall collection (here). If you remember correctly, it was a favorite from the Fall 2013 shows, so of course I'd love to jump at the opportunity to get my hands on some pieces! The only downside... NO PRICING!

Check out some items I love below!

 The dress, and wool top, above, are timeless pieces to add to any professional wardrobe.

The coat, on the left, and the entire outfit on the right, are amazing, and must have pieces in my book!

All In The Shoes

Hey everyone! Today's outfit post is a pretty simple one; button up blouse, classic blue skinny jeans, leather jacket, and a very classic satchel. The only thing amping this look up, slightly, is the platform and patterned shoes. My choice in footwear has to do more with the desire for Summer, rather than it's aesthetic, or practicality. These shoes define Summer for me, with the bright orange pattern and wooden platform, so I figured, 'why not?'

On Track

This past Saturday Kyle and I decided to take a day trip to St. Helena, to go wine tasting, and just get out of the foggy city. I was definitely not prepared for how incredibly hot it was, and found myself dying in an airy tank and jeans. Learnings for next time: wear a barely there dress...

Hey everyone! The below outfit is a mash-up of two styles I usually gravitate towards. I love edgier/boho styles, however, at the end of the day, I consider my style still pretty classic. I felt the below outfit had a healthy mix of two. A silk button down layered over a sweater, with blue jeans, is pretty classic, however, the hat, braid, and jewels, add a more urban boho feel. It was a great outfit to run some errands in over the weekend.

I'll Have What She's Having

I absolutely love the outfit, from the above image, for a casual Summer day (here), so I put together a very similar outfit below. Throwing a striped blazer over a white tee and denim shorts definitely amps up the look. Tell me, would you wear denim shorts and a blazer together?

Currently Craving: Kimono

In anticipation of some Summer weather, I have been thinking about my favorite piece, from my favorite runway collection; the Kimono from Dries S/S '13 collection. It would be the perfect layer to throw over nearly anything I would wear in the Summer. Of course, there is no way for me to own this particular kimono, but the options below are nice alternatives.

Lady Rock

Happy Monday everyone! I'm pretty excited to be posting an outfit post right now, considering last week was pretty bare! Life is still pretty busy, but I will try my best to post at least one outfit a week! If you all want to stay more updated, follow me on instagram @postgradchic

Below is an outfit I wore last week to work. I got a lot of compliments, and comments on how I looked super "rock n' roll" in this look. I liked the thought of that ;)

Wish I Was Wearing: Summer Glam

Summer Glam

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts this week! It's been crazy at work, and to be quite honest, coming home and spending more time on a computer just doesn't seem appealing right now...

I've been semi-obsessed with finding a pair of silver brogues, so I decided to created an outfit based around them. The above outfit is perfect for a warmer SF day. It's a little bit edgy, definitely glam, and something I want to recreate!

Easy As Pie

I hope everyone had a fun 4th of July! I spent the day with friends, enjoying the weather in the park, and eating good food- couldn't ask for a better time! Below you'll see what I wore to the festivities. You may see a hint of color under the shirt, and that's because I wore a crop top under, you know, to enhance my tanning capabilities. What did you do for the 4th?!
