The New Boardroom Chic

Jumpsuit: Vince via Nordstrom Rack // White blazer: H&M // Sandal heels: Zara // Handbag: Michael Kors Astrid Satchel // Aviators: c/o Ellison Sunglass Co. // Pavé triangles necklace: H&M, part of a set // Black pavé bracelet: Target // Gemstone bracelet: Forever21 // Men’s watch: Invicta

I wore this modified suit for a day of client meetings and delivering completed projects. There is nothing quite as fulfilling as creating something unique that gets the people going. When I think back on the career I’d set my sights on through college – saving America’s health care – I am so grateful that I changed course, even though it meant building something from nothing and some restless nights. Now, I get to explore creative options and create exciting projects, and I love it. Having my blog on the side to feed my passions, too, is amazing. #ilovetheinternet

Making a new boardroom for myself is so exciting. And speaking of new things, these strappy Zara heels were my first shoe purchase from them and I am in love. Can’t wait to rock them every day when it warms up more.

If you’re not having fun, why are you doing it? After spending some long hours cranking out work and cooped up in a chair with a coffee, I just needed to jump around! Some crazy wind just added to it.

I guess it’s true . . . the #getitgirl just wants to have fun.

Faux Leather Shorts

Sarah's Ambitions - Faux Leather ShortsSarah's Ambitions - Faux Leather ShortsSarah's Ambitions - Faux Leather ShortsSarah's Ambitions - Faux Leather Shorts

Faux leather shorts: Zara. Black scarf: Marc Jacobs for NM + Target. Sweatshirt jacket: Macy’s (old). Burgundy faux snakeskin pumps: Target. Handbag: Michael Kors Astrid Satchel. Gold bracelet, gem bracelet and LOVE rings: Forever21. Aviator sunglasses: Ellison Sunglass Co (c/o).

These shorts were a find months in the making. I had been dreaming about a pair of faux leather shorts ever since I spied a Vince look book ages ago, with a gorgeous pair my heart said I had to have, to which my bank account promptly replied with a no. I was looking for an affordable pair with enough inseam to be appropriate for everyday wear, when I finally stumbled across these beauties. A few quick clicks later and I was eagerly awaiting my first online Zara purchase’s arrival!

Online shopping is definitely growing on me now that I work from home. Efficient and Christmas-like? If only every decision was so easy! And if only I could justify doing this every week. #collegedebtcomesfirst

The response to my post about body image and blogging last week was fabulous. Especially on social media, people of all ages poured over with support, appreciation and reflection. I know I’m not alone in the fight against the mirror, so I am very glad to have shared this and hope it can inspire more people to love themselves even just a bit more.

Can I get an extra ex-oh-ex-oh for that?

Xoxoxo, Sarah

P.S. These shorts are super comfy, too.


Easy Chic

Faux fur: H&M. Aviators: 1903s c/o Ellison Sunglass Co. Black jacket: Springfield (purchased in Spain, Spring 2009). Sheer black button-up: Pleione via Nordstrom Rack. Camisole: Banana Republic. Bootcut denim: Gap Long & Lean. Bordeaux handbag: Astrid Satchel by Michael Kors. Black pumps: Steve Madden. Men’s watch: Invicta, borrowed from le hubs.

This outfit was very quick to assemble and get out the door. We had places to be and people to see without time to get ready — which is why I love stocking up on go-to pieces like these that don’t require much strategizing in case of emergency.

Xo, Sarah

P.S. A smile is always in season and is the easiest accessory 😉


Feeling Good

Aviator sunglasses: 1903s in black c/o Ellison Sunglass Co. // Angora sweater: Ann Taylor // Faux leather skater skirt: H&M // Faux fur vest: Rachel Zoe (last season, similar from this season here) // Black opaque tights: L’eggs via Walgreen’s (similar from ASOS here) // Black bow flats: Ivanka Trump via Nordstrom (sold out, similar here) // Bordeaux handbag: Michael Kors Astrid satchel // Gold tiered necklace: Target // Men’s watch: Invicta, borrowed from le hubs

When I discovered Ellison Sunglass Co. through The Facets Magazine, I was really moved. Not only do they have beautiful design, with every purchase of a pair of Ellison sunglasses, they cover the cost of a corrective eye surgery for someone in need. Their motto, “Look Good. Do Good.” is exactly what I love to see in fashion. Brands that find a way to give back top my list, and I couldn’t be more proud of my Ellison 1903s! Le hubs also loves them and has already borrowed them a few times. Nothing like a pair of his-and-hers sunglasses to make a relationship solid!

This #getitgirl is also feeling good about life. On a sartorial note, I have been slowly adding some spice to my wardrobe of basics, and I am loving the way my style is growing. This applies to life, too: as I grow wiser and more seasoned, that makes the sweetness that much better.
