Dress Well: Lace + Boots

I have excellent news: this sweater is still available! I was nervous, because I bought it two months ago on Black Friday. How have they not sold out of these babies yet? The world may never know.

I think this sweater is one of my favorite pieces of clothing I've ever owned. You know how you have a few clothing items in your life that you form an unreasonably strong attachment to? (I hope other people experience that.) This sweater has the makings of reaching that echelon of all-star pieces for me. Now I've just got to do my best to not get food on it.

DSC_6715I'm happy to report that I had an unusually social Thursday night, starting with happy hour drinks with my friends from my Bank of America days in San Francisco, followed by dinner at R&G Lounge, which is where we used to eat when working late at BofA. (If you're ever visiting SF, R&G is a great place to add to your itinerary - it's in Chinatown and the food is delicious. Anthony Bourdain even featured it on his show!) I then got over eight hours of sleep (which is a massive amount for me) so I think I'm ready to start Friday on a good foot!

Does everyone have big plans for Super Bowl Sunday? We'll be hosting a little party here at our apartment, which is the first time I have ever hosted a Super Bowl party. I'm not exactly sure how we're going to make sure everyone can see the TV (our space is tiny), so I'm planning on distracting everyone from the cozy quarters with lots of queso. I figure that strategy has a history of success - the queso distraction is how they get away with such tiny tables in Mexican restaurants, right?

 Have a wonderful Friday and weekend, everyone.

Dress Well: Heart on My Sleeve

J. Crew sweater, J. Crew shirt (similar), Joe's jeans, Rocket Dog boots, J. Crew necklace, Ernest Alexander via Club Monaco bag, Coach sunglasses

Cold Texas days over Christmas meant layers: lots of layers. My mother-in-law gave me this adorable sweater from J. Crew, which proved to be a wonderful ally in the fight to stay warm (made harder by the fact that I didn't bring a jacket on the trip...what happened to 70-degree Decembers?!). My husband also gave me a heart-print sweater for Christmas, so expect to see my heart on my sleeve quite a bit in the future!
