friday at the office

This is likely my last post here for several days. I'm off to Vegas very early Sunday morning and back very late Wednesday night. Not sure I'll have time to put up some outfit posts since it's a trip thanks to Traditional Home magazine so I'll be "working" for some of the time and hanging out with my mom who agreed to accompany me for the remainder. I have been trying to hold off spending so I can go a little nuts in Vegas so we'll see what happens! Ciao!

one very long day

I'd like to thank my darling daughter for the 4am wake up call. I'd love to be sporting some joggers and slippers today, but I know that if I get too comfy there is no hope of me staying awake. Bedtime is so very far away. Coffee, you've got a lot of work to do so don't disappoint me.

date night

Last night was a much needed date night for me and husband. We haven't been out in what seems like ages since we're always at the cottage on the weekends. When my plans with my girlfriends fell through, my parents came to babysit and off we went for dinner and a movie. Only the movie part never happened. Even though we arrived at the theater 30 minutes before show time both Magic Mike (my first choice) and Dark Knight were sold out. So we were home by 7:30, but whatever...dinner is the best part anyway!




Reason # 38 why being this short often sucks...having to hem expensive jeans and ending up with this look. Makes me cringe.

HELLS YEAH!


Check out my new Alexander Wang (Donna hobo) bag!!! It's actually a used bag from the cleaning-out-the-closet shop of blogger  Soraya Bakhtiar. I saved almost $600 by buying it from Soraya as opposed to new from an online shop. And to my shock, it only took 10 days to get here from Geneva. I think her listing said it was only used twice (she's NUTS) so it's basically brand new. Looks it anyway. You'll be seeing this bag ALOT on the blog in the future.

B&W

Heading out for an afternoon outdoor adventure. And a trip to Home Depot. My days are exhilarating.

monday at the office

OMG you're not going to believe it. Julia and I actually went OUTSIDE for my outfit pics today! It was only slightly awkward as a couple people passed us in the alley but other than that, it was fairly uneventful (although it was 7:30 am). SO MUCH BETTER than taking pics indoors.
P.S. I picked up my package from Switzerland today at the post office but it's shitty outside so will take some pics tomorrow.







blouse ~ Zara (i'm not really feelin' that tank underneath but don't know what else to wear - maybe just a tank with a straighter neckline?)
pants ~ 2 Two {last seen here}
platforms ~ Jeffrey Campbell's El Carmen via Lori's Shoes {last seen here}
bracelet ~ F21
ring ~ Heavens to Betsy

i lost

Owning the same shirt as this girl is super awesome, even though I totally get that she looks more interesting and all around better in it. My first self proclaimed loss at "Who wore it best"!

shorts: AE
