Weekend comfort

Did you have a nice weekend?
Coat: J.Crew super sale
Scarf: thrifted ($5)
Sweater: Madewell (sale)
Sheer button-up: AA
Super Opaque Tights: AA
Shoes: Matiko ($40 sale)
Bag: vintage D&B thrifted ($10)
Necklace: Black Sparrow (gift)
This was just a simple and comfortable outfit I wore over the weekend. Chris and I went out to breakfast and then spent the rest of a grey and dreary day at home. The weather has been oscillating between pre-spring and early winter, raining one day and beautiful and sunny the next. I really don't have much of a problem with it, but I hear it's supossed to snow again! One thing I'm glad I finally picked up this winter was an actual, honest-to-god, winter coat. This one is so warm and no threadbare elbows!

I'm in New York this week, attending IFB. Stay tuned tomorrow for a giveaway!

Super cute, as always! I've been amazed at how many different ways you've managed to wear that sweater.

Have a blast at Fashion Week! I can't imagine how much fun it must be to be part of that.

What I did with a portion of my weekend was read through your blog from start to finish : ) I really enjoyed it! And the outfits are inspirational, I can see why you would be a great asset to the fashion industry. Seriously, your style rocks. I wanted to ask you - the change in your shape from the workout and healthy eating is really great and so noticeable how slim you are in these new pics - what kind of eating programme do you follow? I read about your workout stuff before (me, I just run outdoors every week)- do you do anything special diet wise?

I really love your style, so I borrowed one of your photos for an inspiration feature at my blog.
I hope that's ok?

I had a decent weekend. Would have been better had I not been sick. I love those tights. I am totally on a tights kick. Maybe because it has actually been cool enough in Tucson to wear them. SHOCKER!

your bag has totally inspired me to hit up the thrift stores this week. it's been too long!

loving the color palette of this outfit, as well.

I've been reading your blog for about a year now without commenting once -- does that make me a lurker? anyway, I just wanted to pop out of the woodwork, say hello, and maybe start commenting every once in a while like a normal person. :)
