Dress Well: Monogrammous


 All Saints jacket, Madewell shirt (old), Paige jeans, J. Crew shoes, Anthropologie necklace, J. Crew bracelet, Madewell monogrammed tote (no longer available in the Cabernet color--but a very similar color/design available from Cuyana), Ray-Ban sunglasses

This just so happens to my 400th post - something I didn't realize until 30 seconds ago. So, to celebrate (because I didn't prepare anything special), I bring you monograms! (Okay, just one monogram.)

To be honest, even though I've been married for three and a half years, my married monogram still doesn't entirely feel like my own. Maybe getting to look at it on this beautiful bag for years to come will assist me with making the full transition to my (no longer very) new name. And if you find yourself desiring your very own Cabernet tote (because Madewell no longer sells this color), may I suggest getting this one from Cuyana? (I love their stuff.)







Oh hey there.

I say this every Monday - but this past weekend was one of my favorite yet. We got to spend some time with one of our favorite organizations on the Berkeley campus on Saturday morning, then spent Saturday afternoon and evening cooking homemade jambalaya and going to see Selma. Yesterday we headed to Napa with some wonderful friends (pictures Friday!) and then capped off the weekend my very favorite way - by folding laundry and watching the Golden Globes. And yes, I am thrilled that Boyhood won both Best Director and Best Drama - although Selma was so wonderfully made, touching, and important that I was sad it couldn't win too. Above all, I think the most genuine moment of the entire telecast was Common's acceptance speech for the award for Best Original Song (look it up on YouTube--it's not up yet as of the writing of this post!). Speeches like that are why I love watching people win trophies.

Happy Monday, everyone.
