Summer is good

09 May 2009











Well it is my first official day of summer break. In honor of this great event, I wore my most summery skirt, and a braid in my hair. Subtle braids are most definitely a summer staple of mine.

Although I am on break finally, this next week will be super busy! I am going to Los Angeles, and San francisco to meet with some head honchos in the west coast fashion industry. I am beyond stoked, and just went on a shopping spree for a whole new business casual outfit. Eeep, this must mean I am getting old! Anyway, I will be quite busy so outfit posts will be minimal... but I shall do my best.

Have a lovely weekend all!

Congrats on making it to summer break! I love your skirt and bag. I think the blogosphere has finally convinced me that I need to learn how to braid my hair.

Have a nice trip! It sounds really cool.

LOVE the american apparel dress. I really, really want to get one! the grey is so pretty, just as basic and versatile as black but a little softer and nicer!

summer break sounds nice right now. I really need to invest in one of those dresses they seem very feminine and versatile. Good luck with your head honcho meetings. i'm sure you will dazzle them.

That sounds so FUN!!! I hope you have tons of fun on the west coast.
By the way, this is a strange question, but what kind of bra do you wear with scoop back tops/dresses? Because I have a shirt that I'm dying to wear, but I'm not quite sure what to wear....

Rosanna said...

Couture Carrie said...
