A Chilly Day in OB

I love this Hinge sweater so much that I (gasp!) paid full price for it, which I NEVER do. Thanks hubs! I wish I could wear it everyday. It kept me nice and cozy during my recent jury duty. It is so incredibly soft!

I love the open back, it gives it a little extra oomph. I don’t even mind that it adds a little bulk to my frame – and that says a lot! It is listed as “ivory shell” online, but this is a very soft pink in person. I got this in a small, so I would say it runs pretty big as I am normally a medium or a large.


Please forgive the sloppy hair, I haven’t had it cut since March so it’s just way too long. Thankfully I’m getting it cut on 12/22. Yippee!


This Vince Camuto bag is a recent Black Friday purchase (it’s currently 50% off!), I freaking love it! And I got it for quite a steal! It’s the perfect size for everyday use and the color (black cherry) goes well with just about anything, without being the typical black or brown.


I actually got this Bill Blass coat from a Burlington Coat Factory (well it was called that back then, I guess they dropped the “Coat Factory” part at some point) in Indiana over a decade ago. It has definitely stood the test of time and I still get compliments on it. Sadly, I don’t get to wear coats all that often in San Diego, but that just means less wear and tear! I occasionally have to snip off a thread here and there, but it still looks great. It’s also a smidge small (I did buy it when I was about 18), but I’m still gonna wear it! Haha!

These Sam Edelman pumps are another recent purchase and I LOVE them! I have a really wide foot and I was lucky enough to snag these in a wide size and they fit perfectly! San Edelman is one of my very favorite shoe designers and I have more pairs of Sam Edelman shoes and booties than any other brand. He knows how to make a cute, yet walkable shoe! I’m not the biggest fan of wearing heels all day, but these 3″ babies are about as comfy as it gets. I buy just about everything online so wasn’t sure if the color (golden caramel) would be too dark, but I think it’ll do just fine. They actually look like a perfect match to my skin tone indoors.


I’m not sure if you can tell from the pictures but the pants I’m wearing (American Eagle Sateen jegging) have a unique feel to them. They feel almost like a  microsuede or something. My clothes have to be comfortable for me to wear them and these are no exception. I am so going to get them in another color…

I gave my trusty Fitbit a break in favor of this cute bejeweled pink leather cuff that I received as a gift a few years back. Thanks Kim!


Thanks to my friend Sarah for taking these pictures! Love you!
