The possibility of rain could not dampen my sense of adventure today. After a quick errand this morning, my boyfriend and I discovered some lovely painted walls down Austin Street, between Polk and Van Ness. After exploring the many boutiques on Polk (one of my favorite things to do in the city), we lunched in a Chinese restaurant and escaped a heavy downpour of rain.
It felt good dressing a little more formal today, basing the “business casual” ensemble around my never-before-worn Tucker for Target top. I’d had it for over a year, so it seemed about time I pulled it out of the closet. Though I’m not crazy about the print, I love the color combo of pink, periwinkle, and dark royal blue, and I feel it works best with a heavy dose of black. I’m also adoring this girlie-looking lipstick; it’s so amazing how easily makeup can change your look depending on color and texture.
Pair a blush blazer with an exotic tee and printed pants for a classy and cultured vibe, layering cross necklaces for a touch of iconographic edge. A sequined clutch adds pizazz, while quirky heels and cat’s-eye sunglasses polish off the eclectic look.
