Rugby Stripes

Jan 20, 2015

Dress: J.Crew  (on sale!) // Silver Oxfords: Tom’s (c/o) // Necklace: Shamelessly Sparkly (c/o) // Bracelets: J.Crew and Shamelessly Sparkly (c/o) // Watch: Anne Klein // Knee-high socks: Forever21

This past week, Kelly, Blair, Lauren and Erin and I were lucky enough to be invited to take advantage of the awesome space at NoMi, the restaurant at the Park Hyatt, for a couple photo shoots. Since the weather has been so bad lately, doing shoots outside has been extra brutal, so they’ve been few and far between! I’m so excited to share this and two more shoots to come.




It was a fun way to spend a winter afternoon, and I can’t wait to go back again for lunch or cocktails. (Everything there is to die for– think a mix of American bistro fare meets Japanese.) I’m also counting down the days until their patio opens (although, it did hit 45 degrees this weekend, so it was ALMOST patio weather!)

I picked up this tomboy-inspired rugby t-shirt dress at J.Crew when we were up at the lake a few weekends ago, and it’s currently on major sale! I’ve been living in it lately, it’s super comfortable, but thick, so it keeps my warm. I like layering my leather leggings underneath it too for some extra coverage if I’m going outside.

Stay toasty out there, and happy Tuesday (yay! It’s not Monday!)
