Day One started off without a hitch.
Having to wear black and white, I layered a white button up (JCrew Haberdashery) under a black 3/4 sleeve sweater (JCrew Tippi) with a slim cropped pant (JCrew Cafe Capri) and black patent platform pump. I threw the black and white printed infinity scarf over top and left it hanging longer instead of double wrapping it around my neck.
I was in JCrew almost from head to toe and as a "going back to work" treat I bought myself the Tillary Tote in the tan leather.
come to mama.....
If you were on the fence about splurging on this bag, I cannot say enough about it. With my new job, I have a laptop and Blackberry to juggle as well as my personal iPhone. I opted for the tote because it will fit all these things I will have with me on any given day as well as double as my handbag. To say this bag is swoonworthy is an understatement.
I am not a huge fan of logo blaring bags and would prefer to have a high quality bag that is not screaming out loud who made it.
But that's just me.
Thank you all for your well wishes yesterday. I wish I had time for outfit pictures because this new venture has me truly "shopping the closet". I placed 1 order with JCrew for the Cafe Capri , the black Tippi, the black No.2 pencil skirt, the Tillary, the Minnie in black and 2 bangles. Adding the few basic black bottoms I desperately needed gives me a great starting point to build outfits with pieces I already own. I chose the Tillary in the tan because with all the black and white I will be wearing I wanted something different than a black bag. The tan color is timeless,goes with everything I own and adds a pop to my outfits.
Shall I start gushing over it again?
I feel a bit out of whack since I have no routine and a bit overwhelmed. My company car is a Prius and was delivered to my house unexpectedly last night. I'm not lying when I say it took me 40 minutes last night in the dark to figure out how to start it. (Had to consult the manual) My husband thought it was hilarious that I couldn't start the car (there is no key!) and stood watching me from the windows this morning getting a chuckle at my expense. He said it looked like I didn't know how to drive, but aside from the nerves of operating a car that IS NOT MINE that requires you to put it in drive, step on the brake and push a button to start it...well, it's all a bit much.
