This outfit is one H&M item away from a well-rounded ensemble of all the inexpensive European heavy-hitters, comprising ASOS, Zara, and Mango. The blazer and clutch are recent acquisitions, both of which have entered heavy rotation. Big fan of the subtly-peaked shoulders on the blazer and, well, I think my reasons for loving the clutch are less than subtle :-)

I've been very bad about sharing notable meals lately, so here goes. Recent highlights have been a melange of appetizers and wines at Willow (regular fave), a hot pastrami sandwich at Thirsty Bernie, pastries and lattes at Buzz, and late afternoon snacks at Rustico.

Zara blazer
Zara blouse
Adia Kibur necklace (similar here)
Michael Kors watch
Hermes, thrifted, Madwell, and Poshlocket (c/o) bangles (similar here and here)
Mango jeans
Maria Bonita Extra belt
Betseyville shoes 
ASOS clutch
