look book: a little less conversation

February 20, 2012

After a very cold couple days in Las Vegas {who knew?!}, I was ready to get back to a sunny Los Angeles and unthaw a bit. I thought the 100+ degree heat was the ultimate evil, but desert cold and wind is right up there. This jacket is perfect for springtime. The stripes are refreshing and it's nice and lightweight. I'm going to love pairing it with dresses and skirts in the coming months!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Matthew and I were busy and productive. He's leaving for New York tomorrow for a business trip and I miss him already. All this traveling we've been doing recently has not been fun. I only like it if we're together! I think it's high time to start planning a vacation!

Have a great Monday everyone!

  14. Your dress is so romantic.
    I find desert cold to be more unbearable then desert heat for sure. I'm in LA right now though and it's chilly here.
