I'm a huge believer in the versatility of the striped shirt. It knows no season, no body type, and no gender. Nothing (aside from the basic white tee) fits so universally. That said, I often relegate mine to the days where I feel like crap because nothing is as effortless or stylish as a striped St. James with a pair of jeans (or khakis). But it's time that I gave my striped St. James the attention it deserves. So, cheers to the greatest and most worn article of clothing in my closet.
Spent the Memorial Day holiday lounging by the pool at the W Hotel in Buckhead. Home to the best strawberry mojito ever (at Whiskey Blue), it's slowly become one of my favorite places to relax in Atlanta. The late afternoon was spent sweating at the Atlanta Jazz Festival. But now that playtime is over, it's back to the grinding stone. There's nothing like Alexander Wang for recuperation clothes. Super soft jersey in figure hugging cuts with just enough insulation to keep warm in freezing, AC blasting conditions.
Winding up my time in NYC by attending some food markets. I invited myself when Becca told me that she was going to Smorgasburg and truly enjoyed the food offerings there. So much better than the Taste of Atlanta, in my opinion. (Step it up, ATL!)
I love this sweater and wish it were in a lighter fabric that could endure the 90*+ humidity weather that will greet me in a few weeks.
Netflix has been feeding my drama monster with the massive amount of Korean dramas they've added to the stream list. As of late, I've been obsessed with "Prosecutor Princess," which has proven to be a true delight. It doesn't have the star power of my normal dramas, and the first two episodes really dragged. But the drama picks up fairly quickly, and the fact that this drama enjoyed high ratings in its later episodes as well as much attention on VOD attests to its watchability.
As its title implies, the lead character is a 21st century princess with a killer, high end wardrobe. Ma Hyeri is a girl after my own heart - she plays sick on an important career workshop so she can chase after a pair of limited edition shoes. (They're Jimmy Choos, relabeled as 'Gioberni' in the drama.) Totally my M.O.
Although her outfits aren't necessarily corporate workplace friendly, I could easily see it working if you replaced her mini skirt or mini dress with a solid colored knee length dress. The trick to her style really comes down to the accessories, proving that you don't have to sacrifice fashion for professionalism.
