Hi. This is what I wore yesterday. Don't let the sunshine fool you. It was actually quite cold. It was one of those days where you look out the window and see Mr. Sun and think it's going to be a nice day....NOT!

I didn't have time to post this until today because we've been packing! Now it's hit me. We're actually moving to L.A.!! We've been trying to dejunk too...especially because of all the stuff we've somehow accumulated over the two and a half years we've been married. It's surprising because we're both practical when it comes to things.

It was a sad day yesterday. Those lovely vintage gold heels of mine are finally wearing down. The heels are starting to show a lot of wear and the metal is protruding. At least I got my $3 worth!

  40. I love that leopard print scarf! I have to start preparing for my move too, which I think means no new (to me) clothes for the next couple of months and that I need to get around to donating my wedding gown to charity.

    ReplyDelete
  41. absolutely adorable outfit miss! love the blazer and the leopard print scarf. also, moving to LA sounds soooo exciting! i remember moving to LA last september (just for 3 months for my fall semester), and i totally miss it. i looooove cali, hopefully i'll get to make the permanent move within 2 more years of living on the east coast.

    good luck packing all your stuff, and have a wonderful move! :)

  42. Great classy outfit1 Love the pop of pink!

    As for the shoes, have you tried taking them to a cobbler for repairs? All they need to do is put a little rubber cap on the heel and they'll be as good as new.

  43. good luck with moving to LA :)
    I love the leopard scarf and gold heels are very cute! =]

  45. Wait, wait, wait. Do NOT throw away those shoes. Is it just the heels that are worn down? I know a great little place you can get those replaced for about $5.00. Seriously. Call me. We'll talk. And schedule a shoot for us and Meg...when it's not bad weather.

    By the way, that pain au chocolat was REALLY good even though it didn't come from France. You should try one.

  46. I really adore your leopard scarf!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Woah your heels are only $3? That's pretty awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  48. you look great!! You always make me want to go buy some heels!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I really like your blazer, the cut's nice and the fit is as well plus those shoulders are perfect which is all strange for a thrifted blazer

    ReplyDelete
  50. Good luck with moving to LA Elaine!
    I "nominated" you in some sort of "like & hate". Don't think you like that things lol, but love your blog and it was a way to tell it to you, you don't really need to do it. I just wanted you to know. ;)

    Besos, hope everything's OK!:)

  58. It was actually pretty chilly here, too. I'm glad about that! I don't want to set aside the scarves and blazers just yet! Although, we've got tricks to stay modest even in the warmer weather :)

  60. As a recently new reader of your blog may I just say I LOVE your style, about the shoes as Cindee Lynne Photos said it is possible to have just the heels replaced, and you get to wear your fabulous shoes for many more years, I have some fab shoes that I've bought from charity shops that have lasted me many years because of this.

  61. That scarf and bag work wonders for a basic jeans and blazer look, they really turn it into something stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Love it, scarfe looks great here!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Thats exactly how the weather has been here in Colorado, ugh. I think today it's going to be about 75 though, so hopefully you guys are in that same boat out in Utar. Oh and i feel like i always comment on pics with that scarf, haha, i dont know what it is!

  65. For about $3-6, you can get your heels redone at your local shoemaker. Although it may cost more than the shoe... if you really love em...
