Playing Favorites.


In this post, I’m basically wearing all of my favorite things, all at once.  I’ve been really into a darker color palette lately.  All black, red lips.. done.  This leather sweatshirt (from The Dreslyn, a new fave) is a recent addition and I love that it’s so comfy – but still sophisticated and cool.  Seriously, this sweatshirt trend is everything.

Anyway, I hope you guys had a great weekend.  I had a really wonderful time with family (both days) and spent the rest of my time working (playing catch-up over here and helping out at BaubleBar packing orders!)  A little boring, but very necessary!

    Grace, you look smoking hot here! I love this whole look on you; so perfect for this time of year when a moody black palette feels refreshing rather than drab.
