Alma Mater


I recently attended my little sister's graduation at The University of California, Berkeley. On the drive to Cal, I realized something strange: I had unintentionally dressed in my Alma Mater's Colors (blue & gold)! 

I realized that this modern take on my school colors was very telling of how I've changed since I graduated from college. Instead of slinky American Apparel gold bandeaus and tanks paired with tiny cutoffs, I found that I've upgraded to a more polished look: a classic trench and a tailored dress (ok... you got me!  I'm not that fancy. My dress isn't tailored, but it sure fits well!). 

Trench Coat: Miss Sixty, also love this one | Lucite Wedges: Boutique Brand
Dress: Nasty Gal, Ozzie Gingham Dress, also love this Valentino one 
Rings: Gorjana, Stella Midi Ring Marina Midi Ring, Watch: Michael Kors, Everest (On sale now!)
Purse: Tory Burch, Rachel Satchel | Sunnies: Chanel, 5234Q C714/3b
Necklace: J. Crew, also lusting over this one (30% off with code HISUMMER)

Now it's your turn—show me your fashionable spin on your school colors! What does your outfit say about you?
