The Scene
Mommy Sunday. She looks adorable per usual. Sporting the new Prada inspired ombre shoes she bought last weekend with her Gucci bag, Banana Republic creamy dreamy sweater and Forever 21 earrings. She is my idol in every way. Hearts in my eyes for her.

Beautiful sunny warm day. Loving the weather gods. We hit Nate n Al’s for lunch where the waitresses have known me since I was 3. Popped into Jurilique for some facial cleanser and Gap before heading to the Bev Cen. A quick perusal of Forever 21 yields a terrific dress that perfectly matches the Prada shoes I got from Santa. Run a few errands and then have sushi for an early dinner.

The Outfit
Forever 21 turquoise Greecian dress
Forever 21 mustard sweater

The Accents
One brown bangle and one yellow
Marni-inspired necklace
Marc Jacobs quilted brown bag
Loeffler Randall for Target gold flats
Chanel quilted brown sunglasses

The Grade

The Commentary
LOVE this color combo. So sass. I am definitely getting my mojo back thanks to the blog, all the lovely comments from pals (new and old!), the working out and the closet reorg.

And it doesn’t hurt that I got to spy Pete Carroll last night. Seriously he is my idol du jour – read this WONDERFUL profile on him.

I am struggling to find my place professionally and I am fascinated by people who are really DOING something with their lives (inspiring, affecting the community, succeeding, living passionately, creating a real legacy.)

Sigh. Someday I will do what I love. In the meantime, I will blog ;)

p.s. don't look directly at my legs - you might be blinded by the whiteness. blech! I CRAVE SUMMER!

As a UCLA alumna, I kinda barfed a little at the part about Pete Carroll :)

Pete Carroll is a real stand up guy. I like what he does away from the side lines. :)
