Where I’m headed today: to the NBC studios in Rockefeller Center to film a NY Live interview about my book (and give some new-mom beauty ideas). And this is what I’m wearing.
I’ve been doing a whole bunch of these segments lately, and while they still make me kind of nervous (albeit less and less with each one that passes), I’ve been having so much fun getting dressed for them. Mostly because my life doesn’t usually involve places to which one needs to wear things like sheath dresses and blazers and pumps (at the same time) – even if I’m headed to a meeting, it’s usually a pretty informal event where the person I’m meeting with cares more about what I’m saying and what I *actually* look like (which usually means jeans, a t-shirt and too much jewelry) than that I’m dressed Like A Professional. Which is my kind of meeting.
But for morning shows, I feel like I should go just a little more tailored. Clean lines. A decent manicure. Classic bag. Shoes with a minimum of scuffs. Not conservative, exactly – I still want to look like myself – but just a touch more…ironed than usual.
P.S. If you’re expecting (or not), I need to tell you to go to Zara (where I found this awesome dress that will fit me for approximately five more days, but that’s OK; I’ll rediscover it next fall) immediately. They’re in this mod stage right now, and it’s all retro pastels and ’60s-ish swing dresses, and it’s just awesome stuff for accommodating a baby bump (or not).
On Me: Zara dress (I couldn’t find it on the Zara site, but it’s definitely in stores and this is close); Ann Taylor blazer; L.A.M.B. heels (try these in black for a similar look); Tom Ford sunglasses; Petra Portfolio tote ℅ Everlane; Lola V faux lashes.
