When it comes to the weekends you can find me one of two ways: Sweatpants, a beer/glass of wine and cuddled in the corner of our couch, or in casual wear like what I wore to run errands yesterday. Something about the combination of a white blazer and this mint necklace reminded me of spring, which I can feel just around the corner! I can’t complain though… yesterday’s weather brought sun and temps far above what we have experienced over the past week. I got this new tote with my February budget to bring along on my trip, but I can already tell it is going to be my new favorite bag (and it doesn’t slouch or fall over, it keeps its structure and looks really nice in real life).
Did you watch the Oscars last night? Who did you think was best dressed?! I personally LOVED Naomi Watts and Amanda Seyfried. Oh and props to Channing Tatum’s wife for still looking incredibly sexy while showing off her baby bump!

I love you tote! It looks more expensive than it is. You look very fresh here! And that blazer is going to rock with pastel tops for spring.

Haha thanks Shanna! Getting better at least 😉 And yes, this bag… I was looking just for something classic with structure but that didn’t cost me and arm and a leg. I LOVE IT… it is probably the best bag I’ve owned for $40!

AniFebruary 25, 2013 at 11:01 AM
ok Rachel, I need your bag and your eyebrows- they both are pretty and PERFECT 🙂
You probaby have the most beautiful eyebrows from all the bloggers I follow, I think as I tend to give everybody a “queen” titel you are my eyebrow queen 🙂
And you should wear more often Jeans, they look so flattering on you 🙂
RachelFebruary 25, 2013 at 11:08 AM
Oh Ani! You are so sweet 🙂 I’m glad I’m your eyebrow queen! Someone mentioned something last week about my brows… makes me think I should do a tutorial because as much as I could wish my brows naturally look like this… they don’t 😉
Also I should definitely showcase my jeans/casual style more often! I wear them a lot they just never make it to the blog it seems because I usually show what I wear to work! Thanks for the sweet comment dearest 🙂
MeganFebruary 25, 2013 at 11:18 AM
