There's No Place Like Home







(Zara vest and leather pants, J.Crew sweater, flats c/o Tory Burch (the "eddie" flat), Vintage Versace bag)

It was crazy coming back from chilly Seattle to such warm weather. I've been taking advantage of this sunny weekend and spent the majority of my time outdoors. Went on an ass kicking hike and yep, ended up rolling around in the grass with leather pants on and nearly falling asleep beneath a shaded tree. So refreshing. I had one extremely exhausting week and I'm glad I finally got to sleep in, catch up on emails, and just RELAX.

I stayed comfortable in one of my favorite combos: denim and leather. With spring coming along, thought I'd slip on my new red ballet flats from Tory Burch's Resort '11 collection. They literally feel like I'm walking on pillows when I wear them. The socks of flats hehe! I could wear these aaaaall day long. A nice break from working all week in uncomfortable heels! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend...why do they seem to go by so fast?!

Sounds like you had a nice weekend and it is always good to relax and rejuvenate.

I really like the colour of your sweater. The outfit looks so comfy. But I'm not sure if I'd look as good as you in leather pants. Love the splash of red.

I'm having a GIVEAWAY to celebrate 250 posts, so drop by and check it out.
