Greylin Chambray Suit

greylinsuit3

This past Friday Nick and I celebrated the union of two friends in San Clemente, CA. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful with an old spanish style surrounding, muted floral tones and plenty of small strung lights. I decided to wear my new Greylin chambray suit that was graciously gifted to me after winning an Instagram contest. I never usually partake in those kind of Instagram activities but the suit really caught my attention. It’s hard for me to find a suit jacket that sits comfortably on me without making me look too boxy. Luckily this chambray material is light and fitted. The two are not only great together but will work amazing as separates. I can’t wait to see their new collection!

I have styled this mesh jersey top from H&M in an earlier posting but decided to take a different route today to show it’s versatility. In my previous post I paired this jersey with some high waisted shorts and DC tennies, taking the jersey somewhat literally as we also shot the pictures on a baseball field. This jersey trend isn’t just for the ballpark however, today I transitioned the top into a chic and somewhat professional look for work. These black high waisted denim jeans from Urban Outfitters was one of my better purchases last year. The dark wash allows them to be disguised as “dressy” for work but when paired with a cropped top you can easily slip into a more casual overtone.

Accessories are what finish off this look. Gold, gold and well…more gold. Gold accessories are my favorite when I’m pushing a monochrome look. Adding a gold chain to a jersey top helps us understand why football players and baseball players wear those ridiculous gold chains around their necks, because it really does play off the jersey quite well. Maybe it is just the ridiculous notion that athletes make millions of dollars by throwing balls at one another but hey, it’s entertaining right?

I finally received my new pair of Zara heels in the mail the other day, I immediately began running styling options through my head once I received them. I looked towards a casual style to mix up the dressiness and shine of the shoes. Believe it or not, all of these pieces are at least a year old. It is so refreshing to be able to incorporate older pieces in your closet that have been neglected. This is one of the ways that I keep myself sane if I am unable to head out for a shopping spree. Usually I hit the back of my closet for some inspiration and usually, it’s there to meet me halfway.

Had some fun at the driving range this morning and afterward Nick and I cruised to Downtown Orange for lunch and a little window shopping. This Quiksilver Women’s top just screams “takin it easy” so it fit pretty nicely for our laid back day. I also think I’ve worn my Zara flats 5/7 days this week but hey, at least I’m getting more bang for my buck.

June gloom has been in full swing this week. My outfits are becoming seriously bipolar. With it being so cloudy outside I can’t help but want to wear my PJ’s to the office, unfortunately, I think thats frowned upon here. I grabbed my favorite Brandy Melville oversized sweater instead. It’s super soft with the perfect amount of thickness to make it easy to wear when its cool out. I haven’t worn this maxi skirt in awhile but I love the maroon color and slit. I know, I know, it’s a little too fall for June but hey, I also broke out my beanie, weather is too unpredictable!

There’s no doubt that jersey tops and tees are trending and I have been having the most difficult time finding one that was within my budget. I found a few from TopShop that really caught my eye but I wanted to go a more traditional route with a mesh jersey material versus a cotton tee. Cue H&M to come out with this amazing white mesh jersey top. I love its minimalism and colors! I paired it with my favorite thrifted acid wash Levi’s shorts and boyfriends thrifted plaid button up, tied around my waist of course. So glad I chose to shoot this look on the hottest day we have seen in weeks.

I can’t forget to mention these amazing new sunnies that ZeroUV graciously sent to me! They are definitely going to become my new staple shades for this summer. I highly recommend checking them out, they have such a wide range of styles for really really good prices.

I seem to go through phases in my wardrobe, lately I’ve leaned towards a more professional demeanor. Today I brought myself back to my grungy roots with my favorite army green jacket. I still maintained a girlish vibe with my new Zara glitter flats. I absolutely adore them and they are surprisingly the most comfortable flats I own.

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve posted anything, I have been extremely busy with my job, just finishing our annual Global Training Conference which had almost 15,000 people in attendance! The entire week I was bound to black slacks, tennis shoes and T-Shirts, not the greatest uniform, I almost went crazy wearing the same outfit multiple days in a row! As a treat to myself for working roughly 68 hours I purchased my Unif Vapor Moto Jacket. This is such a great piece, while it does feel a little odd when you first put it on you quickly get used to the material. I would however not recommend wearing it on a hot and or sunny day, the material does not breathe very easily. This jacket is perfect to throw over a body-con dress in the evening to spice up your outfit!

Have a great week!
