Seasonal Transition

Last week was an absolute whirlwind at work. However, as an event manager, I certainly can't complain when my late nights are filled with name tags, guest lists and floral arrangements! Wednesday's executive-level networking event had record attendance - and, honestly, I couldn't have been more relieved when it was over. I celebrated the success by picking up a sartorial item that's well-suited for my fantasy life. You know, the one where I jet set to exotic locations donned in a bikini, oversize sunglasses, and a silk caftan fluttering in the breeze. Of course, Wisconsin's autumnal wind is there to snap me back to harsh reality. So, I did the only think I could think of: channel Rachel Zoe's 1970s aesthetic to make the piece seasonally appropriate.

Outfit Notes: Michael by Michael Kors Caftan; Joe's Jeans Denim; House of Harlow Bangle; Banana Republic Bracelet; Vintage Necklace from my grandmother; Ring courtesy of Shop the Look; Guess Shoes

  6. Ooh an event planner! I always wanted to be an event planner, but I'm worried it'll be too stressful. Either way, you manage to do it while looking effortlessly glamorous, so well done. :)

    let me be clear - that top does not make me think that. i'm on the hunt for the perfect loose, silk blouse.

  23. Thank you so much for stopping by with your sweet comments! So sorry to hear about the AC - reminds me of the time I swear I had a gas leak but no one else could smell it. The gas co. came out, said everything was fine...and now two weeks later our entire gas line through the parking lot has been dug up to be replaced! Hmmm...

    I'm loving this caftan, and had you not told us otherwise, I would have been expecting the big sunglasses and jet in the last few pics, naturally :)
