shop by outfit

When I posted this look on INSTAGRAM I called the color oxblood. But now that I see what it looks like via a DSLR vs an iPhone, it's not looking like oxblood. At any rate, it is an outfit, and I call it an outfit because I bought the blazer, blouse and pants all on the same day in the same store! Do you buy outfits? This might have been the first time for me...

in my backyard

What a weekend!! First off after weeks of being in the 40’s & 50’s a.k.a FREEZING by Cali standards, we were blessed with 60’s and 70’s all weekend and that just set the tone for a fabulous weekend that went a little something like this:

A) Woke up Saturday morning and signed the lease on my new place and this beautiful boardwalk just happens to be my new backyard!

B) Then headed to a local park to volunteer on the National Day of Service. I thought I would be serving food to the homeless, but instead I was enlisted to talk to people as they stood in line for food and take notes as they told me their story….perfect for me because I love to write and I love to listen.

C) Sunday night I attempted to party hard (but frankly I'm getting too old to keep up with the youngsters) because what else are you going to do when the 49ers are headed to the Super Bowl!!!

D) And yesterday I was glued to the television on an extra special MLK Day watching the inauguration coverage of President Barak Obama.

Today, I’m back to work and counting down the days to Friday...

sequin leggings

These sequin leggings, last seen HERE, are my once a year leggings. If I could get away with wearing them more often I would, but I just don't see how and where they would be appropriate any time other than the holidays. What do you guys think? Any style tips on how to make them year-round wear?

candy striper

I don't know what it is about stripes, but I love them. I wore these stripes on Christmas. I can't think of a more appropriate time to dress up like a candy cane.

Happy New Year!!! I celebrated NYE at a black tie casino themed party and as you can see I totally ignored the "black tie" part. Ha! Nonetheless it was a fabulous evening surrounded by beautiful, well dressed people and if last night was any indication of what's to come, it's going to be a swell year. Cheers

Any new year's resolutions? I don't have any but I'd love to hear yours...
