Sail Away

On Ask Phivy, we recently got a question about what would be a great first day work outfit & I mentioned one of my favorite go-to is black cuffed shorts, tights & pumps.  Actually, that answer is still in the queue waiting to be published, so you'll see it soon, haha.  Since it's summer (and my workplace is a little more casual), I opted out of the tights - plus my shorts aren't BOOTY shorts - so it works out.

Kitson LA was having a huge sale & I scored this silk tank for $30!  I love the little anchors on it.  SO NAUTICAL, MAN.  The zipper in the back is a really nice detail, except it makes it difficult to tuck the shirt into (like into a high-waisted skirt) because the zipper will fold & bend all weird.  It's best to just leave it alone.  I also love that the tank is loose (forgiving) so I added a fitted black jacket pulls the entire outfit together.
This weekend, Rye Bread (isn't it weird that I refer to him as "Rye Bread" on my blog & "Ryan" on Ask Phivy?  HE IS THE SAME PERSON, WHY DIFFERENT NAMES?) & I are going to Santa Rosa!  We'll be visiting his eldest sister & their cousins.  Since we've been there a handful of times (and there's only so much we can do there, let's be honest), I'm interested to see what we'll find ourselves doing.  Any suggestions?  I guess I can always go for some more wine tasting.  NEVER ENOUGH.

    Oooh, i love this outfit! Jacket and shorts? One of my faves.

    You can go biking while wine tasting! Is there such a thing as a BUI? (biking under the influence)

  2. My office is ultra-casual, so I love these work outfit posts. I really do need to stop wearing jeans and t-shirts to work. I think I said I was going to do this on my blog like 3 years ago and that was a total fail.

  7. I've been on a never-ending search for shorts like that - all I've found are too tight :/ Where did you get them at?
