Look :: After the Rain



Outfit details: Jacket, pants - Ann Taylor. Sunnies, shoes - Target. Hoodie - The Secret Closet. Earring - F21. Watch - MK.





First off, I want to give a warm welcome to everyone who came over here from Katie's blog! The love has been wonderfully overwhelming, and I just can't wait to get to know all of you. The blogosphere's sense of community is a beautiful thing! (And if you haven't yet entered the giveaway I'm hosting there, check it out! You still have a few days...)

As for the photos, these were taken the day after a huge storm. Floods everywhere! My mom was visiting and we snapped these outside of Target before purchasing a vacuum. Not the most exciting location ever, but this is proof that I don't spend my days sipping cocktails under palm trees. Just because I live in LA, doesn't mean I'm on a constant vacation. I still pay bills and run errands!

However, we did grab a few margaritas that night -- along with the best Mexican food ever -- at Sol y Luna, which I previously posted about here. Work hard, play harder. You know?

  2. Is this post where I leave a comment about entering your ad space giveaway?! Um, maybe I'll go back a post! I love what you're wearing as always! Those shoes are too cute, and I already recognized those stripes on the wall as Target, one of the best places on Earth! -Jessica

  3. I love how you didn't even plan this outfit and it's really great! And the shoes are perfect for after the rain. There is nothing worse than going outside, thinking it's beautiful and wearing flats only to find your feet soaking with just a few steps. I entered your give-away a as soon as I saw it on Katie's blog a couple of days ago!

  4. So cute, Steph! The weather here has been really rainy and gross, so I have been living in my leather jacket and hoodies. It may only be 8am here, but a margarita already sounds so delicious! Glad you had a good time with your mom :)

  18. I love enjoying a cocktail or two with my mom over a good meal. Sounds like you two had a nice visit! Your leather jacket is fab and it's even more awesome that you layered it over a hoodie. I LOVE doing that!! Happy Friday! XO
