Back from NYC - new Yumi Kim blouse

I got this blouse for a good price.  I couldn't pass up the little broken-heart print!  I had to wear it today, even though I am stuck at home unpacking.  I came home with a terrible cold.  Ugh!  And, I can't find my little digital card to log in to work from home so I can't even get caught up on emails.  I plan to go in early and cancel all my meetings so I don't pass my germs on.

I also got a pair of tweed knee-shorts from Uniqlo (I've been searching forever!) and a skirt, also from the Yumi Kim store on the lower east side.  I also bought a pair of pale grey suede flatforms by 3.1 Philip Lim at the Barney's Warehouse sale for about 75% off the retail price.  Score!

Friday - Peter Lik and Pink Pants

The last of the picture challenge!  How will I ever go back to simply picking something out to wear??

This is a photo by Peter Lik, called One (2010)

This is my new quilted work bag.  It fits my water bottle and ipad, and would fit my lunch or a pair of pumps (wrapped up in a plastic bag) if needed.  It's by Kate Spade.

Wednesday and Thursday - photo inspired

This is Andreas Gursky 99 Cent II Diptychon (2001), which is today's outfit inspiration.

Below is what I actually wore (it wasn't a "heels" kind of day - too much walking)

This is Wednesday's outfit.  It was inspired by Richard Prince, Untitled (Cowboy) (1989).  I wish I had worn my ruffled white blouse with this instead of the simple ribbed tank.

Three Outfits - Stripes, Flowers, and Pink

Monday's outfit was comfortable with flats and casual pants.  This was inspired by Petite Etoile's outfit from a while back:

This was Wednesday's outfit.  I got a LOT of compliments on this skirt.  A random punk kid on the street even murmured "I like your skirt, miss" as he sauntered past me with his skateboard and his posse. My boss reminisced about the perfect pair of yellow Ralph Lauren chino's that he missed out on 10 years ago.

Tuesday:  I finally got a new hole punched in one of my ruffled spats.  They still aren't perfectly even, but they're better.  This top is new from Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  It's Rebecca Taylor.  I wore this on Thursday with my new-to-me waxed denim Marc by Marc Jabobs pencil skirt (hand me down from my friend Anna) and it was quite adorable.

Monday - Turquoise and White

A mild summer day called for this top.  I haven't worn it all year because it's been so cold!  In fact, most of my summer clothes will need to come out and get worn this month!

I bought this top at the Trina Turk store in Palm Springs, which is her original boutique.  It's an amazing store!  
I am having some nerve pain in my toes and was worried that these sandals would aggravate it, but I did ok.  My feet are sore from my (very) short run on Sunday, so the lack of arch support was annoying.  But I managed without any trouble.  I didn't want to wear close-toed shoes on such a nice day, and my Birkenstocks are too casual for this outfit.
