What I’m Wearing

  • Jeans: American Eagle
  • Belt: Forever 21
  • Vest, White Oxford shirt: New York & Company
  • Bracelets: Charming Charlies
  • Handbag: Michael by Michael Kors
  • Watch: Toywatch Plasteramic

A little annoyed about the fact that my belt chose to ride up a little during the pictures, but whatev. I shouldn’t dwell on it.  Nothing’s perfect! It can be hard to pull off a boyish, businessman-like vest without looking too androgenous.

But even with a crisp white shirt, I felt the sailor-button style dark wash jeans, straw-bucket bag, dagger-like hot pink stilletos, and sparkly bangles helped avoid looking too masculine. What do you think? I had fun with the braid – it’s the first time I’ve been able to braid my hair in a very long time!

My belated birthday present from HB came in yesterday…and it was…..THIS! Oooh it’s so pretty and I’m such a lucky girl. I’m a DY fanatic.

Psst…guess what? Today is Friday, May 7th, and that means I am officially done with my second year of medical school!

Last question: what do you think of the new Like feature I’m trying out? It seems like since I implemented it only a couple people have liked the latest posts. Should it stay or should it go? Try it out and let me know what you think!

    After I finished wiping up my drool over that MK straw bag, I was able to post a comment.

    You look great! (BTW, the DY heavy chain pewter necklace is fantastic. Can't wait to see how you wear it in a post)

    Darlin', you look gorgeous, as always. But have you considered taking a size smaller in the jeans? They look like they're swamping you!

    • 05.07.2010 / 11:43 pm

      Yeah this pair is from my days post-college, pre-med school when I was a size bigger 🙂

    hehe love the creativity behind this one as well. =) not sure how much i'm liking the style of the jeans tho the belt kinda gives it a bit of a professional look. yes in a world where working makes us more androgenous, it doesn't hurt to add a little feminine flair here and there. <3 the purse!! hehe and gotta love charming charlie's too =D

    I love the whole look from your braid to the tips of those fabulous pink toes. I think the jeans look nice a bit baggy like that. You look like you are getting more comfortable in front of the camera too. Congratulations on finishing your second year and on having a man with good taste.
