Only a few more days until autumn, and I could not be more ready! Every night I’ve gotten off of work this week, I’ve been stunned by how perfect the weather is. Living in the Bay Area, I don’t have much of a summer vs. winter wardrobe, but I am very excited to incorporate more starves and boots into my outfits and finally pull out my favorite peacoat.
Pairing shorts with tights has always been one of my favorite combinations, and I’m frankly surprised it’s not more popular. I think it looks so unexpected while being chic and put together. Plus, I know I ranted in my Red Lipstick and Bows outfit post about how much I love these JCrew sweaters – now you get to see another way I’ve styled it! The Tippi Sweater with a scarf is really my “uniform” that I wear two or three times a week (no joke).
This week was full of great things. I finally got a very long awaited raise at work, and Reg and I celebrated with a sushi date at our favorite spot, Joshu-ya. On Thursday, my company had a scavenger hunt in the afternoon and afterward went out to drinks and appetizers. Ru and I went running with our friend Maxine and her dog Penny twice this week at 7am, which is truly an ungodly hour, but it was extremely beautiful out. Check out pictures from all of these adventures on my Instagram!
On another positive note, I’m hosting a giveaway for $50 to Modcloth over on Erin’s blog, Two Thirds Hazel. Go check it out here and enter for your chance to win!
