A Little Edgy and a Little Nice

Saturday, June 05, 2010
We got back at 1 this morning with horrible neck cramps and ready for a clean bed and a real shower after 48 hours of traveling and layovers - ugh. It's great to finally be back and not have to be on an airplane any time soon. After 10 flights for one vaca, I think I'm good for a couple of years..

I had a couple lovely packages waiting for me when I got back. This jacket was one of 'em! I personally wouldn't have picked it out if I saw it on a hanger just because I'm a wimp like that.. But I'm definitely glad to have such an edgy piece in my closet now! What do you think? I already know I'm going to wear this thing to rags!!!

  38. That jacket is totally rad! Those flats are great for $7. Scored some more deals in the Philippines? Do share them! I could probably get a couple more pairs with just 7 bucks if you knew where to go... it's just the crowd you have to get used to!

  40. this jacket is BOSS! the color is so unconventional but works amazingly as a neutral... wonderful pick!

    your hair looks fabulous by the way... the waves give your outfit a summery vibe...
