Daytime Sparkle

I love combining evening wear elements into my daily looks – like a touch of sequins for example. Grad student lifestyle can be a bit of a downer so throwing in a little sparkle, sparkle is always a good thing. But I keep it profesh with a blazer. I’m very professional you guys, for reals.





blazer: H&M / top: Ann Taylor / Scarf: can’t recall / purse: Old Navy / shoes: thrifted


This is an older photo but dudes, my cat is adorable!

In unrelated news, tomorrow I will be attending a Connecticut bloggers meet up right here in good old New Haven. After a chance to pose for some glam shots at various locations around the Yale campus we’ll be heading to the always amazing restaurant Barcelona for tapas and wine. Color me excited! If you’re a Connecticut or surrounding state blogger and want to stage a meet up, shoot me an email or leave a comment with your contact info.

Don’t forget to like me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, and subscribe to my YouTube channel!

YAY for sequins!!! eventhough you are wearing all black but sequins makes it more dressier (I dont think this is a word but who cares).

Very professional indeed!!! love that blanket by the way, need to get one for my dog... guess what, speaking of dogs, thought about you the other day, as I took my dog to the vet for a check up, and she was selling some pet accessories...had to seriously restrain myself from buying a LEOPARD PRINT collar and leash aggggghhh could have died it was so cute! would have looked soooo good on my dog... don't know why I didn't just buy it...oh I know, my boyfriend would have killed me, not only does he hate the print but if he sees me making "our baby" wear it, that would have to be the end of our relationship ;)

I think this was about sparkle, but I wanna say SCARF!! I love it. Scarves are on my mind big time this week and the colors are perfect on the one you're sporting.

And about your cat? WHAT A GUY! (or lady?)--love cats :)
