Reason 999,999 to love Mr. Diabolina: He hearts fresh flowers. So today to kick off USC football season and the long weekend at home, he dragged me to the Flower Mart.
We used to go about once a month. Love it down there. The early morning hustle and bustle, the sea of colors, the intoxicating fragrances, the delish breakfast at neighboring Philippe's before we head home.
Thought these spiky orchids looked like Mr. D's hair. My mom calls it "sparky" instead of spiky.
Saw a lot of Cardinal and Gold flowers.
Took it as a good omen for today's game.
Had a bittersweet time watching the season opener today. Love that our quarterback looks strong and that we dominated. Wish that we had been able to go to Virginia and see it in person. Sigh.
After the game, Mr. D and I went for a run. We haven't done that in years. I took him on the course I've been doing since I was 15. Felt odd but wonderful sharing that with him.
Ended the day with a little Gossip Girl. Am officially old because I'm super into the parents' storylines. Especially that Rufus. Yum.
USC Trojans Henley
Marc by Marc Jacobs denim miniskirt
Louis Vuitton earrings
Tory Burch flats
Marc Jacobs bag
Got dressed in under five minutes this morning. At 8 am. Mr. Diabolina was already decked out in his cardinal and gold outfit. Ugh the pressure.
So I grabbed this henley and denim skirt in a sleepy haze. Added a few luxe accessories to glam it all up: my gold Me&Ro necklace, gold/cardinal Louis Vuitton earrings, gold Tory Burch flats, gold grommeted MJ bag.
Wore the headband again today. At one point during breakfast, I had to take it off because it's a bit headache inducing tight on my enormous head. Mr. D promptly came up with a new way to wear it ;)
Also added these Fashion District leopard print bangles by the end of the day. My desperate attempt to bring fashion to football.
Per usual, am nervous for football season. Casual/athletic dressing is not my forte. Always feel so dowdy. Plus I haven't bought any amazing SC gear in a while. At least I have two more weeks to plan before the first home game...
In the meantime, here are some greatest hits from the 2007 season
