Hi! It's been a little while since I've been on here. A special long visit with friends kept me so occupied that I did not get on my laptop at all last week. I'm looking to get back in the swing of things with work, posting and catching up on reading and answering all my emails that have accumulated in the hundreds. Last week, I opted for this loose fitting Zara's checkered linen top with back buttons, paired with one of my favorite red pencil skirts (also seen here) to a meeting that kept me well-ventilated on this particularly hot humid day while the tonal texture of my Rachel Zoe's snakeskin platform wedge sandals added that exotic fun touch to an otherwise basic outfit.
