Phew I made it to Friday – my last day home alone with the children. Seriously, I admire all stay at home mums/moms/dads – their job is so much more difficult than going to the office. As a treat for our last day together I took us all out for a late lunch at a local taco restaurant. It was fun and the skinny margarita was a nice treat for me.
Organizing my new closet has reminded me of some lovely pieces I have that have been stored downstairs since the renovations started. I found this lovely J.Crew jumper yesterday from 2010 – it has a lovely slit neck and is 100% cashmere. I have to admit it looks far better without a t-shirt underneath but it was freezing yesterday and I felt the need for an extra layer. It’ll look even better after I lose the last few pounds around my middle. I’ve been in the gym every day this week and and can feel it starting to have an impact – I’ve even signed up for a free weight orientation next week – I’m going to start pumping iron!
Anyway – the J.Crew jumper is the something old – the something new are the Newbury charcoal suede boots. No I have not broken my New Year’s resolution already – they have in fact been in my closet for over a month unworn. After buying my leather Newburys and loving them to bits – I actually vacillated between the Isabel Marant Dickers and these suede Newburys. I ordered them both and darn it ended up keeping both. There is something really special about the Rag & Bone Newbury – which accounts for it’s immense popularity. They are incredibly comfortable and worn with these black Gap jeans they made my legs feel like they go on forever. Even though they are ‘charcoal’ they are much more of a ‘black’ suede and I love the contrast of the wooden heel.
Before heading out I put on my Boden Chic leather biker jacket and my H&M sparkly scarf. Lovely and toasty.
Mr. UPS turned up in the afternoon with my fabulous sales haul (again bought before the end of the year!). It was like Christmas all over again!
My Vince Camuto fawna flats are just gorgeous! If you are in the US I encourage you to order on the Vince Camuto website – I discovered an Extra25 code off sale items! I had initially ordered them from Nordstrom – but one pair was canceled before shipping due to lack of inventory and then the pair that arrived were really disheveled looking – not happy but they are responsive on Twitter so the CS is making up for it. These are the ones that arrived directly from Vince Camuto – with the code they were just $33 each! Obviously I ordered the croissant color (pink/silver) too and they are on their way.
Happy weekend!! x
