Currently Lovin’

Hello loves,

I had a great weekend. A good mix of friend time, exercise and family time. I love long weekends! Were you able to fit in a little bit of time for everything that you wanted to? These are all the things I’m currently wishing were in my closet.

 

I tend to wear a lot of black pants to work when I do choose to wear pants, which is mostly in the winter time when it’s too chilly for skirts and dresses. I think these flats seem perfect with black pants for fall, and I love a good cap toe. I’m trying to decide which I like more: the burgundy, the beige, or the grey! Which do you like? Which would you were the most to work?

 

How cute would this purse be with an all black outfit? Or a cute plaid shirt and jeans? I’ve been looking to invest in a cute blue purse, but haven’t yet pulled the trigger. I ended up getting my work purse for the new school year from them, and have loved it so far! It’s sturdy, roomy and the navy color gorgeously goes with everything. Do you have a blush purse yet?

It’s starting to be pretty chilly here in the mornings as I head off to work, and even though this sweater is out of my budget (#teacherlife) I love the look of it.

Off the Shoulder Sweater

The off the shoulder sweater look is a notch above a regular sweater, and can take a great classic creamy sweater from night to day easily.

What do you think about these pieces? Do any of them belong in your closet?

Hello March

I feel like February just went by so fast. Hello March! This is what’s on my radar for March.   1. I’m obsessed with this show. I watched the first season in about a week. 2.¬†Shop Piperlime’s close-out sale. 3. … Continue reading

Why, Hello February

January was such a busy month!

This cute little thing just came in the mail! I always love getting new Kiel James Patrick boxes, because they come with the cutest packaging!

I was able to knock 7 things off my 101 in 1001 list. Wahoo!

1. Inspire someone to write their own list (Yay)
2. Go wine tasting with friends or family (Napa Valley was so beautiful)
35. Organize my Itunes
39. Find my signature cocktail (Lemondrop, oh so yummy)
63. Buy a plane ticket with frequent flier miles only (the Santa Fe trip in March)
98. Get a hammock (Given to me by the lovely Maureen!!)

Done and done!

I have a few more items I plan to cross off in the works for February, so it should be a great month!

It felt like every weekend in January was jam-packed, from going to Napa, having friends over for fun cocktails, to babysitting basically every day of the weekend. February looks to be as busy as January was, complete with a trip with friends to Tahoe and a family trip to the Cayman Islands (eeek!!). This may or may not have contributed to the radio silence here on the blog.

Work is going well, and teaching full-time makes for a busy day, but I have been slowly carving out gym time, which has been good to get back in my life. I have a dinner date set up with Annie and my favorite old proff to discuss the masters program at SCU for this fall. I’m both alternatively stoked and dreading going back to night classes.

I finally set up a savings plan so I now can look forward to one day having a fancy-pants camera and a KS watch sometime in the next year or so.

Oh, and February is my no-spending month, so wish me luck!

We had such a grey, rainy, perfect for snuggling with the pups weekend. I babysat for a lot of the weekend, but did manage to get in a few hours working on my quilt. It was a great way to finish out the week.

Happy February!

Love,

Kiel James Patrick

Over the last year I have watched this fantastic company called Kiel James Patrick grow. Run by Kiel and his girlfriend Sarah Vickers, and their team of friends make bracelets, belts, shirts and purses all in their adorable factory. Sarah has a blog called Classy Girls Wear Pearls, and has fantastic style. Recently they gained Brooks Brothers as their sponsor, which means I can wander into the Brooks Brothers here on this coast and peek at some of their products. I purchased this bracelet in March, and this bag in July. I love both.

They have released all sorts of cute bow bracelets and I need some help making up my mind. Which ones do you like? Which one would go with the most outfits?
