See My Vest

Thrifted Blouse and Vest. Seven For All Mankind Jeans.
Sam Edelman Booties. Forever21 Necklace.
Nails in 'Let's Do Lunch' by OPI for Sephora

Little outfit post from yesterday,
all my boyfriend could say was
"you look like Mr. Burns when he wears that gorilla vest"
fair enough. haha
one of seven of my new pairs of shoes
from over the holidays. they are very comfy
and a little different because they have a square toe.
and they aren't clogs.
i'm not a clog kind of girl
these are too badass to be referred to as 'clogs'

(can you tell i have a vendetta against clogs?)

Sweet Caroline's 50th Birthday!

Give into Me

Just updating on my continuous love affair with Jeffrey Campbell.
more specifically the Pixie Wedge.
Things are going pretty well...
there was a sale, and then there was a desire for leopard
and here we are.
happily together once, twice, and three times again
Pixie's in leopard, grey, and black
:) :) :)
If it would stop raining i would wear these a little more often!

ps- saw Country Strong on the Weekend, so good!
Garret Hedlund is a total babe. for real
and Leighton Meester is too, obviously
ps2-the movie has also inspired me to wear all my plaid

Love Love Love these looks!
especially with the stripes in the last photo
this is a must-try this week

and not to be depressing but
apparently today is the most depressing day of the year?
-Visa bills come in from Christmas
-People realize their New Year's Resolutions will fail
-and the weather sucks!

But here on the West Coast it has been mild, and no rain today!
so cheer up !!!

Happy January 17th!

ps- i am in serious need of organizing my closet...

Dream Office

photo/story at Vogue

Office/Closet space of Lauren Santo Domingo of Vogue
so inspiring.
i probably spend 70% of my time at my desk while i am at home.
homework, reading, getting organized, computer etc.
Everything goes on at my desk.
So important to have an inspiring space to work in.
i think mine needs a little sprucing

Lauren goes on to say :
“I think that is the mark of a good apartment; you can never really be done—It’s like a proper wardrobe. At my house, it might be a small tweak, but you’re never going to see the same thing twice.”

i like that quote. it reminds me that not everything has to come together at once,
it is all a process, and one that should be enjoyed!

Does your workspace inspire you?

ps-i love her bookcase of shoes!
my house is decorated with shoes too.
either because i have no space
or because they are beautiful....
maybe both.

Sleepy Tuesday

I just had the worst work related stress dream.
That i was serving at my last restaurant and i
didn't know where anything was and customers were
getting mad. why couldn't i be dreaming of something
better to start my day!?
Now i am groggy and in turn dreading working tonight.
Happy Tuesday?

Skirt: Forver21, Socks: Urban Outfitters, Wedges: Jeffrey Campbell

Wore this little outfit on the weekend.
Still feeling out the whole socks with heels/wedges thing...
i didn't mind it!

Seahawks vs. Saints Playoff Game

What an exciting game to be at!
Last weekend my boyfriend and i took off south of the border
to watch the Seattle Seahawks take on (the defending SuperBowl Champs)
the New Orleans Saints. We stayed for a couple days and took in
the whole atmosphere. We had both never been and what a
great win by the Seahawks!
Sadly, later on that day our Indianapolis Colts lost :(
always next year, but i am still sad!

(Qwest Field)

(Sea Gals)

(Tail-gate party and new friends)

Great Weekend !!!

New Year, New You

Hello 2011!

I have been struggling to keep my looming cold from reaching its full potential,
so i have been moving at half speed lately.
Typical for my first week back to school.
This new year brings my usual plans for a healthier living
and regular exercise routines
i feel like i have been doing this long enough to finally have the hang of it?
Wish me luck! and good luck on your own new years resolutions!

Today i did a million errands and went to the dentist and
i am pleased with myself for being so efficient.
Great way to start this new semester of school.

And of course ...
New Year, New You, New Things!
Picked up this Mink Pink sequinned blazer
(with a cut out hole in the back)
who says sequins are only for new years eve?
bought this lovely jacket at Violet Hill in Steveston,
cutest little boutique, with some really unique items.

Happy Tuesday!
Hope your first week back to reality runs smoothly
