lunch break

Wearing the most comfortable items possible while I fill my belly up during lunch.  Can’t beat the combination of jersey and chambray with some tennis shoes.

I have been looking around forever to find this Helmut Lang skirt in my size.  It was really nice to stumble across it on the Saks Off Fifth site for half the price!  I’m going to need to scavenge this website a little more frequently because they seem to have a really good stock of old favorites at a cheaper price.

My sister recently gave me this white top claiming that the color looked bad on her.  Had to disagree but couldn’t complain about taking it off her hands since I’ve been wearing this top religiously since I got it!  It’s the perfect loose tunic/tank mix that makes me feel like I have nothing on.  And in my book, that’s always a big fat plus since I get so uncomfortable wearing heavy fabrics.  I have the worst time layering over the winter because I feel so constricted in them!

Ok, got a little off topic there with the winter woes and all so back to the tank tunic top.  I love it!  I also dug these floral skirt and shoes out of the closet while I was cleaning up and they all managed to go together nicely.  Love it when I find an old something while cleaning.

the trashbag


A quick chai tea latte run at Starbucks before running some errands.  Ed recently got obsessed with this drink (what a newb :P) so he jumps at every chance to get one.  It was a pretty gloomy day so call me crazy for wearing silk thin clothes but they are just so darn comfortable.

I’ve been dying to snag a pair of slouchy pants because of how comfortable they looked while retaining a chic silhouette, but it was really difficult to find ones that didn’t make my short self look frumpy.  Finally found a pair and all I can say is, just try on a bunch to find the special one.  I’m probably going to wear the crap out of these pants so they may pop up on my blog quite frequently.  You’ve been warned!

P.S. These pants have been lovingly nicknamed as the Trashbags.

weekendgetaway weekendgetaway1 weekendgetaway2 weekendgetaway3 weekendgetaway4 weekendgetaway5 weekendgetaway6 weekendgetaway7 weekendgetaway8 weekendgetaway9 weekendgetaway10Had an almost amazing time over the weekend celebrating birthdays and a great reunion with my sister.  Almost amazing because there was an unfortunate accident at the sand dunes where a friend got hurt.  Nothing fatal though, which was a relief.  Unfortunately,  I spent a good portion of the day at the hospital which is why there are no other outfits in this post.  Ah wells.

Otherwise, It was a weekend filled with lattes and plenty of beach time.  Of course I managed to squeeze a small shopping session in but since I’m gearing up for an upcoming NY trip, I decided to be good and just came away with a plain tee.  Can’t wait for another amazing weekend getaway!

Stereophonics brings so much memories of driving in my car.  Being stuck in traffic.  Singing off tune with my sister.  Being stuck in traffic.  It was such an amazing experience to finally see them perform live.  And I got to bring the LA love on with my beanie.  *wink*
