Not so glamorous

A quick look at my morning commute.  I am definitely not one of those people who can fit all my work stuff (lunch, shoes, etc) in my purse.  For those who have mastered workday packing – please provide tips (because sadly, some days I cart three bags back and forth).

Lost in Transation

I had some technical difficulties (of my own making!) with the post earlier today.  So instead of an a.m. post, this is now a late-night post (well, either Tuesday night or Wed morning depending on your time zone…).

When I was putting together this outfit, I was going for a retro vibe.  However, now that I have seen the photos, I think I failed miserably.  Instead of retro, I get “boring” and “needs a necklace” vibes.  😦

Pants:  J.Crew {think I will probably let down the hem to make them a little longer}
Sunglasses:  Armani Exchange (similar AX model)
Bracelet:  Amrita Singh Allie Bangles
