January 20, 2014

Life is so much more fun with printed pants. I might have said that before but it's true. I have started to accumulate quite the collection of printed bottoms, especially in a floral design--see exhibit A (2012) exhibit B (2013) and exhibit C (2013). I styled this pair with a scalloped collar button-up from Kiel James Patrick. I'm such a fan of this young US designer. Everything is made in the USA and he has such a strong attention to quality and detail.

This weekend my Mom and I used these Groupons that we've had for the past year for a massage and facial. It was SUCH a special treat! I can't even tell you how many blackheads were removed..so many. And side note: ouch! Saturday night we had a family pizza night at 800 Degrees in Westwood. I went to the Long Beach Flea Market on Sunday morning and in the afternoon I made pretzels for the first time. It was so much fun but I definitely need practice in rolling out the dough. You can see a before photo on Instagram for proof! How was your weekend? Are you ready for the week ahead?

  4. Great coat - such a stunning color and shape. I like how it looks with the mint green and floral pants too. I only a couple printed pants and I'm always tempted to my more but then I get scared I'll never wear them.
