Fedora





Here is a shot of the corner of my desk. The Bronnley Lemon & Neroli perfume is a present for my mom. Her birthday is next week. For the longest time, she has talked about finding a lemony perfume. This one smells warmly of citrus, without reminding me of cleaning supplies :)

The OPI nail polish is called Makes Men Blush. 

Excellent sequels: Portal 2 and The Sims 2


Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Echo


I wore this to work today. Two of my clients commented that I looked like I belonged in jail with this skirt. In the fashion world, we equate stripes with style. However, to ordinary people, stripes apparently = jail. 
A few coworkers gave me compliments on this outfit, though. One woman actually called me her fashion hero. So I guess it all evens out, eh?
Here is a secret. This skirt is actually a dress. I'm wearing a t-shirt on top to keep it more modest for the office. I tucked the seam in with a belt. See?

This is my cat, Leonard. His full name is Leonard Elrond Oscar Nimoy. Did you catch all the nerdy     references in there? I hope you did. If not, all will be explained later.
Happy almost Friday!

Out on the Weekend



My boyfriend and I took a long walk through a park in our neighborhood this weekend. It rained all day Saturday but the sun came out for the afternoon on Sunday. We made the most delicious sandwiches after our walk: olives, feta cheese, tomato and lettuce on baguettes.
Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend! Back to work tomorrow...

Sushi

The weather here is ridiculous. 
Last week, lows were in the 20s and this week highs are in the 90s. That makes getting dressed very confusing!  I mean, it takes me half an hour to pick out an outfit on a good day. I don't even want to admit how much time I've spent planning my work wardrobe this month...

Anyway, here is an outfit I wore a a couple weeks ago when it was unseasonably cold. My boyfriend and I had sushi and drinks at a place down the street. We try to splurge and go out for sushi at least once a month. 

Dress: Kohl's, boots: Go Jane, belt: BF's, jacket: J Crew

Here's hoping the weather makes up its mind!

Good Karma

Welcome to Second Breakfast!
This is my first post ever.
My hope is this will someday be a full-fledged fashion blog.
We'll see what happens!
