I'm currently sitting in my hotel room at the four seasons in downtown Houston. We just got done eat pizza and are watching Bette midler's las Vegas show (she is wonderful). Once I get done, we are going to head out to a concert (Warpaint). I love the idea of a new year, a new start. I hope 2011 brings us all lots of happiness! Cheers to you and cheers to me. Be safe tonight!

I was talking to two of my BFF co-workers this morning and told them I felt 
a bit "Pope'ish" in this top.
I have the collar pulled down a bit in the below photo,
but if I were to leave it be, it's quite Religious.

top: Zara
jeans: banana republic

belt: jcrew outlet
necklace: vintage, Christmas gift from my Mom
(Isn't this necklace perfect?? My Mom was given this necklace in the
late '60s when she was in a wedding. What a nice bridesmaid gift!)

The Graduate

pants: Gap
shoes: Steve Madden

These pants are called the "Really Skinny" and yes, they are. I figured I would try them at work, they may be toooooo skinny for work (although they display them in the "work" section of Gap...and Gap knows best..or do they?). Tonight, is my sister's party for graduating from PT school! woot woot! I'm a super proud sister! Way to go Robin! Let's Celebrate!!!

On a different note, this am I'm jamming to the new Girl Talk Cd. You can get it free here. Awesome. Free GOOD music is the best.

mustard seed

Hello blogland! Happy Wednesday!
It's a super blustery day here and the hubs and I had multiple things to do around town.
I also feel like I need a disclaimer: I am NOT really four feet tall. Is it just me, or do I look seriously short in some of these pictures?



I love the detail on this cardigan!


cardigan: j. crew sale rack!
top: j. crew outlet
jeans: express
boots: lucchese
scarf: old navy

hump day

sweater: forever21
top: target
pants: jag from nordstroms
boots: gianni bini
ring: jewelmint

I just got this ring in the mail yesterday. I never wear jewelry but I sometimes get in moods to try to make myself start. Maybe if I go slow this time instead of jumping into the biggest pair of earrings I can find. We will see.
This week has seemed to fly. I can't believe it is Wednesday already. What are everyone's NYE plans?

Until next time...

these boots are made for walking

I threw together this outfit to go out and run errands so I could fully enjoy the rest of my vacation. Which hopefully that means starting tomorrow, I can sit in bed with my computer reading blogs, watching my new tv and perhaps sipping a peppermint mocha.
I was surprised to see I hadn't blogged about my boots yet--shame on me! My sweet husband got them for me in Santa Fe a couple years ago, and they are one of my favorite gifts I have ever received.




top: gap
scarf: gifted
jeans: express
boots: lucchese store, santa fe, nm (1883 collection)

Time flies

Jacket: Inc
Shirt: express
Pants: gap
Shoes: target

-Oh man it was hard to get up this morning for work. I could just sleep and sleep.... Which is what I might do when I go home from work instead of running. We will see. I wore something a little more comfortable today just to get back into the groove.

Have a happy Monday!

pretty in pink

We headed off to do Christmas dinner yesterday and then saw True Grit.
It was a lovely Christmas!
I still have a whole week of vacation so my posting might slow down some...I'm still looking forward to spending a lot of time in sweats and t-shirts.
No worries though-I will make up for it by posting some great outfits when I return to work. :-)

shoes: banana republic
