There is a whole lot going on in this outfit--pastel sunglasses, leather sleeves and hot pink silk just to name a few. I picked this coat up to give my classic trench a respite this spring (which I've been wearing to death since I bought it a few years back). I'd been seeing leather sleeves around stores/blogs/the office and couldn't resist them when paired with a casual, military silhouette. As for the other mediums in this outfit, who knows if they work, but for now I'll say they do.
On that note, I'm off visiting my parents in Ohio so wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

- Colored pants aren't just for women. They can liven up a classic navy blazer--especially at a summer wedding!
- Get to know a tailor. Men and women alike should make it a priority to find a great (and inexpensive) tailor; it can make a world of a difference when taking in blazers, shortening hems and even nipping in the waist.
- Learn to layer. Whether it's a t-shirt under a henley (as pictured above) on a warm afternoon or a button-down under a sweater under a blazer in the fall, layering helps to give you a distinctive style. Plus, it keeps you warmer on chilly spring days so you can avoid your heavy overcoat!

Roast the asparagus (be sure to salt and pepper it and add a bit of olive oil so it doesn't stick to the foil!) in the oven at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes before pouring the combined mixture over it. If you're looking for a new (but simple) asparagus recipe, I must insist you try this--it's heavenly.

Stripes are one of the foundations of my wardrobe. I’ve been wearing them for years and when I saw all the versions that Stylemint had online, I knew I’d have to get a few. Their tees are soft, lightweight, basic enough to wear everyday yet classic enough to wear for years to come.

The mint jeans are back...post-St. Patrick's Day. I wore these to work today, again, just to highlight their versatility. My colored jean kick is making wonder what I wore all last spring and summer. When you find a piece (or pieces) you love do you ever wonder how you did without it for so long?

You have no idea how I excited I was for this gem of a coat to arrive as part of the Bib + Tuck Forward Fashion Project. I've been admiring it from afar on all my favorite bloggers (Alicia, Christine, + Jules); when I finally got to wear it myself, it was all that I expected and more. The downside of this awesome project? I'll be sad to see it go.
PS And big thanks to Audrey to snapping these pics with her new camera! Head on over to her blog to read more about our night at Ruby Room, too.

The search is over; I've officially lost a great pair of sunglasses. It's not a proud moment (it's the first good pair I've ever lost) but I'm admitting that they're finally gone. I have other pairs but have only been exclusively wearing my Karen Walker shades as of late. I'm on the hunt for more, specifically candy-colored frames (across all price points). Should I splurge or are pastel sunglasses a fleeting trend?
