Hello ladies and gents! Sorry for the accidental mini-vacay, I've had a whirlwind past few days. Highlights: attended the first taping for Anderson Cooper's brand new daytime talk show, landed and started a (very, very) short-term temp position at a publishing house and spent an entire day drinking for a friend's biergarten birthday. This past week=winning.

However, today was definitely one of those days where you could find me standing in front of my closet for hours, pondering the dreaded first-day-of-work outfit. I landed on a simple printed sheath dress, but in my dream land, I kind of wish I could have worn this:

Dorothy Perkins boatneck top, $25 / Jason Wu cascade skirt, $765 / Butter nailpolish in 'Pink Ribbon', $14 / House of Harlow 1960 cuff, $229 / Zara bowling bag, $26 / Tory Burch booties, $395

Granted, you can get away with a lot of clothing options in a creative environment, so perhaps this isn't for everyone's workplace. I love the fact that the outfit itself is fairly understated, but the killer shoes and major cuff give this ensemble its kick (though I personally would be 6'3 in those Tory Burch beauties). And it should be noted that I have crazy love for nude nails lately.

Also note: I don't give a damn about matching my shoes and bag. Yes, I said it!
