TAKING THE SIDE STREETS


Blazer - vintage, Coat - Anthropologie, Shirt - YesStyle, Shorts - Ruche, Oxfords - vintage, Beanie - H&M, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff (get a similar here), Bracelet - Bottica

Enjoying what seems to be the last days of winter out and about. I can take a chilly day, as long as the sun is beaming on me and I am in the presence of good company. This particular weekend was a little Philly reunion. Both Natalie and Bonnie haven't been in the city for quite some time, and it felt like the good old days. We walked our favorite city side streets, window shopped, chilled over coffee, ate at our favorite Malaysian restaurant, and went out dancing at night. Can't get any better than that!

Already this past Saturday and Sunday went by way too fast. But I got so much done! My house is now spotless. My housemate and I cleaned the place inside and out. It feels like a real home now. My favorite going out place now has an upstairs lounge and played dubstep music (I'm talking Foster the People and Led Zeppelin dubstep remixes). Yes, I danced all night long. Helped set up an Oxfam meeting at my house to celebrate the upcoming International Women's Day. And I was able to find time to just sit back and relax. One of those much needed weekends.

Still obsessing over my blazer coat. I love how easy and boyish it is. Dresses down a pair of frilly lace shorts. And its oversized fit makes it the best thing to layer with.

Happy Manic Monday :)

You are too damn cute, and I love how you wear that anthro jacket.

A said...

so cute how you added a touch of femininity to a rockerish/tomboy outfit with those lace shorts! (if that made any sense....)

that bracelet is pretty cool and your manicure looks like a fun twist on the french manicure.

your studded bag is definitely too cool! the beanie definitely gives you some street cred :) heehee

i agree with meggstatus above: you are too cute!!

LOVE this look! Thanks for stopping by yesterday evening. Waking up to find myself linked to sunny California when it's rainy in Mississippi...sweet. Last year in Istanbul I was wearing black with brown and my Turkish girlfriends hated it - but I'm so inspired with what you're doing here :)
