Weekend Wanderings (and a bit of nostalgia)

Zara top and blazer, J Brand jeans, Loeffler Randall sandals

Sunday was a relatively lazy day other than my walk to Whole Foods.  My sister got herself this Zara shirt and jacket and was kind enough to get them for me as well.  These were the perfect Sunday afternoon items paired with my J Brand cropped flares.  I'm loving all these bright florals!

Chanel necklace and ring, Cambrige Satchel bag, Longchamp leather bracelet

My jaunt over to Whole Foods had me wandering through the neighborhood that I lived in when I first moved to Boston 15 years ago.  It made me really look at my lovely town through a new set of eyes and see the beauty that I take for granted each day. 

 I wandered by the Mother Church of the Christian Scientists which is such a beautiful campus of buildings.

After wandering through the Christian Science Plaza, I made my way home through the Southwest Corridor where there are dog parks, little community gardens and lots of these gorgeous hydrangea.

 

And to top off my lovely day, I bought myself these gorgeous bright, bright flowers.

Saturday at Louis Exposure

Saturday afternoon I met Lani and Naina at Louis Boston for their Louis Exposure series to see a wonderful emerging designer, Jennifer Chun (who I had previously posted about here).  Her line was as fabulous in person as it looks online.

I ordered this super cool denim coat from Jennifer's fall 2011 collection that you will certainly see me wearing to death.

Stella McCartney for H&M jacket, Zara pants, Moschino belt, Miu Miu shoes

After the three of us did our damage at Louis, we hopped upstairs to Sam's to sit outside for a cocktail.  I was looking forward to wearing my new Miu Miu's that I got on deep discount in London and I wore them with a Stella McCartney for H&M tuxedo jacket and white Zara pants.

Chanel necklace, Tiziana bag, Hermes bangle

After leaving Louis, Lani and I met Anne of Ritournelle for dinner at Miel at the Intercontinental.  It was a fun night out with a some lovely blogger gals.

Sunny Disposition

 

Kate Spade jacket, Zara top, Seven jeans

 It was back to work for me after vacation last week and to counteract the dreary day, I wore bright bold colors.  Plus I've been feeling under the weather and bright colors just make me happy.  I wore a yellow Kate Spade jacket, blue and green striped Zara top and white Seven jeans.

Sequin Palm Beach necklace, French Sole flats, Balenciaga bag

London Spoils - My trip part 4

I mentioned here that I spent a day wandering around Chelsea and Knightsbridge which involved several hours in Harvey Nicks.  As is always the case, I found my way to the shoe department where I saw an area to queue to get into the sale.  Lucky for me, there was no one in line and there were loads of fabulous shoes on sale (Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, Alaia to name but a few).  And then I saw this Marc by Marc Jacobs platform wedge with an ankle strap that I had seen onine but could never find in my size.  Harvey Nicks had my size and they were deeply discounted, so they clearly became mine.

Then on another day, at the recommendation of my guest blogger Style on the Couch (post here), I made my way to Liberty's which was really one of the best department stores I have ever been in.  It reminded me of Barney's in Manhattan with loads of high end designers and some less well known emerging designers.  Plus they have a really cool vintage section that was certainly worth a browse.  Again, I ended up in shoes where there were roomsful on sale.  This was the most organized sale I've ever seen.  Everything was grouped by designer, in size order and there were plenty of sales staff to help out.  I spotted these Miu Miu's that were right up my alley and in my size.  How's a girl to resist?

One of these days, I will stop buying shoes.  But these were on deep discount!  I continue to pare down my shoe wardrobe to make room for the new.  Check out my shop my closet section here to be the beneficiary of my closet cleaning!
