Gap faded slimfit jeans 02
And I've said it before so I'll say it again: these are definitely the most comfy pair of jeans I own.

Good luck to everyone starting the winter edition of kendi's 30-for-30!

Sunday, by the hour

This is my last weekend home with the hubs for 2 months! He is going skiing with some buddies next weekend before I leave. Our timing was a bit off, but what can you do?

It is almost 9 and time for bed. I realize this may be too early for some, but I find I am much more productive in early morning hours. Good night :)

Good morning!

top: Anthro
cardi: M+O, remix'd
skirt: Old Navy, remix'd
belt+boots: Anthro, remix'd
earrings: gift'd&remix'd
necklace: Jessica Elliott, remix'd
tights: Loft, remix'd

The two pairs of boots purchased from Anthro at the end of last year have been my best buys so far this season. Since I have been avoiding wearing heels to work, they have been my go-to footwear. Fortunately I am not in a formal business setting, so this works out well.

Three things I am grateful for today:
1. This is my last working Saturday for 2 months.
2. Coffee is good in the morning.

3. Cardis are a girl's best friends (well, behind the hubs and diamonds of course!)

A quickie

top: Old Navy
skirt: Old Navy, remix'd
boots: Anthro
earrings: gift'd&remix'd
necklace: Collingnon Designs, remix'd
belt: Anthro, remix'd
tights: Loft, remix'd

When I am short on time, I use my point-and-shoot camera to take some quick outfits photos. My favorite pose is usually when I am looking to the left. I guess I favor that side.

This blouse was another cheapie I bought at Old Navy last week. At $5, I had to buy 3 different colors!

In with the new

necklace: Collingnon Designs, remix'd
belt: Ann Taylor, remix'd

The main components of today's look was acquired within the last 3 weeks. I couldn't resist all the extra 40% off sales!

Today was one of those mornings when none of my remix photos were to my liking; this was actually my favorite one!

I am curious to see how these new pumps last throughout the day.
I think I may bring a pair of back-up flats to work just in case.

The new shoes were bought to replace these from the same store, only 5 years older.DSC_3473
I think 5 years is a good time to replace shoes, no?

peach tank 01
Like many bloggers, I am bringing a little spring into my winter wardrobe. My favorite part about living in Houston? Even the winter is fairly sunny and the temperatures don't get below 30-40 degrees (usually). It's cold enough to wear layers but not so cold you can't go outside.

Lazy Wednesday

all items remix'd
white tee, booties, scarf: Old Navy
blue tee, cardi: Gap
cords: J. Crew
sunnies: Dsquared

I have been enjoying the day off with a whole lotta nothing. It's back to the grind tomorrow!

Two weeks!

mysore 01
In 2 weeks I will be boarding a plane to fly to Frankfurt, Germany and then to Bengaluru, India. From Bengaluru, I will take an approximately 3 hour cab ride to Mysore, India.

mysore 02
I wish I was going to learn under this man; unfortunately he passed away a few years ago, so I will be studying with his grandson.

mysore 03
Although Mysore is a relatively small city for India, it still has plenty of sights to see and things to do outside of yoga. I'm getting excited!

Because I worked all the way in Austin yesterday, I have today and tomorrow off! Nothing beats having a weekend in the middle of the week :)

top: Gap, remix'd
tunic: Uniqlo
cardi: Express, remix'd
jeans: Gap, remix'd
booties: Old Navy, remix'd
sunnies: Dsquared, remix'd
scarf&belt: Gap, remix'd

I bought this tunic from Uniqlo this summer but hadn't really figured out a good way to wear it. It has pockets (yay!) but they hit right at the widest part of my hips (boo!) so the proportions are off a little bit. I experimented with belting and layering it today and am satistifed with the results.

Gap bluestripe jeans 01
These skinny jeans are perfect for wearing under boots and can be dressed up or down!

Excuse me now while I go visit the peanut!

Last week I was less inspired for my daily out of a suitcase will do that to a girl.

On Tuesday I went to dinner with my dear friend V, who moved to Austin last year. We split the Red Velvet cake for dessert :)

On Wednesday I practiced yoga with an instructor I met through my instructors in H-town.

On Thursday I had dinner with V, A and J. You can't tell from this photo, but poor J had just threw out his back and he was in a lot of pain all through the meal. Getting old sucks.

On Friday I came home to the hubs and these lovely tulips, my favorite flower!

On Saturday we enjoyed a French Wine dinner at Club Rue with our friends. I love how they humor me with goofy pics.

On Sunday I forgot to take a pic during the day so resorted to a random selfie of me at the hotel :)
