Hi everybody! Happy Monday!
For those of you with the day off today, I hope you’re enjoying it! I took a trip east this weekend to compete in a ski competition for my business school, and then I snuck away to visit with friends and family who live close by. It was a wonderful time, but today I have the long trip home to the west coast. If only these places weren’t so far apart!
As you can probably guess, I snapped these photos in California before my trip. We had a few beautiful days last week – warm and sunny – and I felt like one of those lazy harbor seals who goes belly up the second the sun appears. I’ve been basking in it, and I won’t even pretend like its not great.
This outfit is full of items all on my short list of go-tos. And, save the pants, they’ve all stood the test of time. These pants are a recent addition to my closet, and I’m so happy to have them. I needed a pair of black jeans that weren’t royally distressed, and at $42 I decided to give these a go. They have exceeded expectations and are super comfy with just enough stretch. If you’re looking for a pair I highly recommend.
Happy long weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
