home office style: in a coffee shop.




Usually, I love being at home to work; I can do my own thing and not be distracted. Other days, it's nice to get out and be in a public atmosphere to get inspired. So, yesterday I took my kicks & bow-adorned leg warmers to set up my "home office" at the Java Room for a different creative vibe. The high price of the raspberry white mocha latte (it's as good as it sounds) was worth it; a live piano player was infusing music into the space and there were other people set up working, too. It felt like an open, creative, relaxed office space within a coffee shop. Think I might head back over today...

Where do you like to set up shop to work or get creative?

Bond, Jill Bond...

I have the most awesome, incredible, surreal, beyond stellar news ever. My thoughtful and lovely boyfriend, Eric, is taking me to go see the opening of the new James Bond  movie, Skyfall.... in London. YES. LONDON. Cue: me. freaking. out. I danced all up and down and around my house like a crazy person when I found out. I'm beyond excited.

In true Bond girl fashion, I will need to be dressing up royally for this event. So, I started by thinking of some words that define a Bond girl: sleek, sexy, mysterious, smart, chicly badass (heyoh, boyish chic!). They always seem to be wearing long gowns. I'd like to revamp the look a bit while still emulating my inner Bond girl. Here's my moodboard for the night out:

Skyfall Posters
1 // badass studded earrings
2 // beaded, flowy dress with an edgy slit
3 // red, chic bodycon dress
4 // boyish chic, bowtie clutch
5 // sleek, ankle strap platforms
6 // badass, bodycon dress

On the hunt for a look that's shaken, not stirred.
