Executive summary | Links for your weekend | 06.24.11

I painted this for my brother's birthday...oh, must have been freshman or sophomore year of college. He's a talented musician and I am a not-so-talented artist. Needless to say, he moved to Texas eight years ago, and this ol' thing still sits in "his" room at my parents house.
Happy FriYAY! Another week down, one week closer to moving day (three weeks left, but who's counting?). I'm taking today and Monday off to spend some time with family in Southern California before we move, since the last time K and I were both here was Christmas. So I'm writing this from my parent's living room (and I took some extra pics last week so you'll have an outfit post to enjoy Monday as well).

You the professional: Workplace hair-dos

You the professional: Workplace hair-dos

While I do like to try out different things myself, hair is one of those things that is harder (sometimes my hair just isn't long enough to try out styles I'd like to). So I'm happy to present some great office-appropriate hair-dos from some of my favorite bloggers!

H&M cardigan - 2009 - $30 (similar) / The Limited top - 2009 - $20 (similar) / Target skirt - 2007 - $6 (similar) / J.Crew belt - 2011 - $10 (similar) / Kate Spade pumps - 2011 - gift (similar) / American Eagle necklace - 2010 - $7 (similar)
Outfit analysis: Red, teal, and pink? This color combination is pretty wild (compared to my usual), but I really, really like it! The belt balances out the full skirt, and the neutral cardigan and metallic heels anchor the colors. I originally picked out the top and skirt, and will probably try them together without the cardigan when it warms up...
