75

For a little while

2/19/12




Romwe jacket, vintage blouse, Zara eyelet top & shoes, J Brand velvet pants, Jason Wu for Target satchel, Michael Kors watch, 2020AVE wrap bracelet, Ray Ban sunglasses

Wearing all at once the pieces I'm loving at the moment is never a bad thing, right? These shoes are such a win - they remind me of a pair of Phillip Lim's I had once seen. They just simply make any outfit better. Obsessed with this vintage silk blouse I picked up last week, too. The teeny tiny print is fantastic and the sheen and color combo makes me giddy - it's like a pyjama shirt on crack. And speaking of obsessions, I've been wearing my new Michael Kors watch and Jason Wu x Target satchel like mad. This MK watch is smaller than the gold one I usually wear, but I think its size is perfect for the color. As for the Jason Wu piece, it was the only thing I was able to get my hands on when the pieces hit online AND in stores. I actually dragged my arse out to a nearby Target to see if, maybe, for once, there would be something left for me... but of course, I've never been one to get lucky with Blah for Target or Blah for H&M crap. Well, I did leave around noon to check, so I guess I can't blame the world for not sharing the goodies. I was contemplating on keeping it for a while, but the satchel's definitely grown on me.

It's been SUCH a lovely weekend, and I'm soaking it all in. Long weekends are much appreciated now that I feel like I'm always working... when you're used to regulated hours, only seeing the sun while you drive to work, etc., you begin to get excited over two days of just rest and a peace of mind, catching up with friends when the sun is at its peak, and, of course, sleeping in. But, reality resumes and I should probably get back into sleeping earlier than 2:00 am. Nighty night everyone! xx

That blouse really is gorgeous - the detailing is so finite you hardly notice it until you get a good look. This weekend extension has been so anticipated on my end, too. An extra 24 hours is just what everyone needs this time of the year, I think.

You really are starting to sound like Rumi. Anyway, I love your blouse!
