Look + Lunch :: Umami Burger















Outfit details: Shirt - Rewind. Jeans, bracelet - Ann Taylor. Ring, shoes - Target. Glasses - c/o GlassesUSA. Watch - Michael Kors. Bag - Salvation Army. Scarf - c/o JACOB clothing.


My go-to outfit outfit ensemble, lately, has been a cute-but-casual button-up shirt with jeans, preferably of the colored variety. Back in high school, I wore denim on the daily -- paired with band tees from indie rock and poppy punk concerts I frequented with friends in the dirty D. A few years later, I vowed never to wear jeans again; I realized that they looked so sloppy and haphazard on me that I was ashamed to have been seen in public wearing them. Times have changed, however, and denim is now able to look put-together and cool once more. It also helps that I've learned to choose the right pair for my body type, and lucky for me, I used to work at Ann Taylor and know exactly what fits. Maybe one of these days, I'll even begin to break out my Something Corporate or Say Anything tees.

I wore this look to a short and sweet lunch with darling Sandi of Pushing Polish. I'd been a fan of her blog for awhile, and was so excited when she e-mailed me about meeting in person! We chowed down at Umami Burger in Pasadena; she opted for turkey and I ordered veggie, naturally. The food was delicious and we had fun snapping a few photos afterward. I was thrilled when she allowed me to post a pic of her, seeing as she normally only features her hands at her own blog. Well, ladies and gentleman, here is the full-length beauty behind the nail art! I can't wait for our next adventure.

  4. I love umami burger! There's on at the grove with outdoor seating that's perfect for lunch with the kids, and the burgers are scrumptious!
    As for jeans,I've been living in mine too. My new skinnies are so comfortable they're all I want to wear. Love your pink ones! It would be nice to have a few more colors for spring.

  7. Damn your food pictures always make me so damn hungry! Interesting take on when you stopped wearing jeans. Kinda how I felt when I stopped wearing hoodies, recently I've been thinking about wearing my converse a lot less and only wearing shoes, but they're just too damn comfy.
