Just a short spring-inspired post with lots of color. This weekend is supposed to be dreary, but here’s to hoping that the sun makes a few surprise appearances.

P.S. These photos were taken in San Jose. Who knew San Jose had this beautiful countryside? I sure didn’t.

Crunch Time

6 Mar

The hardest part of the morning routine is trying to figure out what to wear everyday. It’s particularly challenging if you’re in a profession that limits what you can wear. As a dentist, it’s critical to wear clothes that are comfortable, yet professional. A button down and cropped slacks allow me to go through the rigors of a typical day in the office while still maintaining a professional appearance. It’s my go-to outfit when I’m in a rush.

The bag is a perfect place to stash flats that I can switch out with heels when I make plans to meet B for dinner.

Winter Blues

I recently attended a dental school classmate’s wedding. Admittedly, it was one of the first weddings I’ve attended that wasn’t my parents’ friend or a relative, but my friend. Lately though, it seems like almost every week someone is getting engaged…hopefully that means more wedding fun is coming up ;)

I decided to go for a more modest look that would be appropriate for a church wedding. I love wearing tights during the winter; it makes everything seem a bit more put together with the added benefit of warmth. They also break up the snake-skin heels and the busyness of the floral nicely.

The wedding took place near my alma mater, so B and I took a detour from the wedding festitivites to stroll the beautiful campus. It was really nice to visit and show him where I spent four amazing years of my life.
