Mouthful of Diamonds

I was so excited to style this top from the beautiful Cara of a fashion love affair. The cool-toned colours and hammered metal detailing immediately drew me in and I was quick to dibs it!

Since this was one of the last semi-nice days for the next week or so, I decided to do one final ode to summer by pairing the shimmery top with my yellow Club Monaco skirt and going sans jacket.

I seriously hate this expression but THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY. I’m a die-hard night owl and have seriously been struggling with waking up so early every morning. I’ve been feeling perma-exhausted lately and more than anything, I’m just looking forward to a good long sleep at some point during the weekend. If anyone has amazing tips for getting used to a new sleep schedule, hit me up.

    Love everything, I can't tell if I prefer the top or the skirt or the shoes…. I am fascinated with everything.

    I have problems waking up early too and I tend to use my weekends catching up on sleep. TGIF! That lemon yellow CM skirt looks great on you… I had tried that on but yellow's definitley not my colour.

    Alexandra! It's such a gorgeous skirt and the color is absolutely divine on you! I'm also a night owl as well but there's no way I look as fresh-faced as you! I need a miracle makeup that makes me look like I get a full 8-hour sleep everynight, haha. xoxxoxoo

    I'm very much with you on the TGIF thing, I have to say. Being cubicle-bound five days a week will do that to you 😛 I wish I could point you in the direction of more sleep, but except on special occasions, I'm always in bed by ten- I think I might secret be eighty years old; I also have an absurd fondness for hard candies 🙂 But I digress… I love the way you styled Cara's top, I never thought of pairing it with "our" skirt but the colour combination is just stunning. And I'm still envious of those gray pumps. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

    I so agree with you on the weekends and sleep thing. I usually like to go out and blow some steam on weekends, but lately I just feel too tired to put in that effort!
