What I Wore (in April)

Playing catch up, as usual!  Here are a few looks, starting where we left off in April (time flies!).  On the plus side, maybe some of the things I’m wearing are now on sale.  🙂

Thanks for reading!

Spring?

Although you wouldn’t be able to tell by the thermometer in San Francisco, spring has arrived!  I’m trying to find ways to mix spring colors and fabrics with temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s, although I did break down yesterday and layer on the cashmere (it was coooooold!).  Here are a few looks from this week.

I’ve mentioned it before, but I am not a big fan of bare legs at work.  There are three main reasons: 1) bare legs are not as professional; 2) I am always freezing; and 3) I don’t want to blind anyone with my vampire-pale legs.  This is easy in the winter with opaque and knit tights, but I’ve been on the hunt for fun, sheer options for spring.  Loving the new back seam tights (below).

Thanks so much for reading!

Fluzie

I spent the last week curled up with a kleenex box and my Vick’s Vaporub.  The flu–good times.  (Said no one ever.)  Luckily, my husband is awesome and took great care of me.  He even made some delicious chicken soup.

soup

I’m not quite 100% but feeling much better!  And playing catch up.  Remember last week when I posted a pic of my brand new mint colored dress?  Well I immediately proceeded to spill salad dressing on it.  And then I tried to clean it up.  Two wrongs make it likely that you wrecked your dress.  (Please, please, please work your magic, dry cleaners!)  Luckily I overpacked, and wore this out for drinks, dinner, and lawyer parties.

28 Days

Is it me, or did February just fly by?  Sheesh.  Here’s my February, mostly via iPhone and Instagram.  Husband and I saw two good friends get married in San Diego this month, and it was one of the nicest weddings ever.  Ah, l’amour.  ❤  I couldn’t help include a few pictures of the fur kids, too.

Thanks for your patience, friends.  I’m hoping to actually post daily in March!

Wow, I really hoped to post more than once a month in 2013!  I will do my best to make March a better month than February.

That said, here’s January in a nutshell.  More catch up.  More outfits.  Lots of color.  Lots of work.  Not much else to report!

I worked from home yesterday morning, so I thought it was a good day to break in my new Louboutins.  But then I decided to walk back from a meeting to my office, and by the time I got back, I could barely walk!  Love these shoes, they are so beautiful, but they are painful!!  My older pair has just stopped hurting and I’ve had them for almost two years.  I guess I’ll have to suffer through it for a bit… but totally worth it.  🙂

What we girls do for shoes…
