Red + Blue.


All good things must come to an end, and after a full sixteen days out of the office, it’s back to work today.  I don’t know if I’ve ever had this long off!  I was still working part of the time, and of course blogging too… but not actually going into an office for that long does the body good.  Alas, I really missed my coworkers so am excited to see them all today.

Hope you guys had a good weekend!  I ended mine with candlelit yoga last night… the perfect end to a great little break.

This coat.  This coat is a gem.  Over the break I got to spend a really fun day with my girlfriend Aly.  We had the best little day of shopping + day drinking while she was visiting last week.  She found this coat first at Old Navy and of course I had to have it too.  So we are now cross-the-pond-twinsies.  It’s hard to see in my photos but it has the cutest shearling collar.  Also, it is $30.  And I can’t just not mention the bag.  It was a little prezzie to myself.  I’ve been spoiling myself a little too much lately, but I’ve also been working really, really hard.  I’ll buckle down a bit in the New Year.
