Crème + Grey

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

For a brunch date with little sis, her ridiculously cool girlfriend, (I styled a sweatshirt/skirt combo that I stole from her - coming soon) and the monkey, we took a walk to Abbot Kinney to enjoy our favorite coffee and shopping spots.
It was still warm enough to rock my lace shorts and a thin blouse, but I literally threw on this cashmere tank on the way out the door. (I mean, literally. My closet is a hidden wall right by our front entrance.) I'm always tossing things on at the last second and hoping they work.
I needed just a tad more warmth and this did the trick. I'm so glad I kept this tank because I've worn it a million ways. It was a long, beautiful piece that got a hole right front and center. But I couldn't part with it's yummy-ness, so I hacked it off. (Consider this before you toss something you love!) Sometimes I wear it at home over a nightgown and it just feels luxurious. (Side note - I must do a comfy clothes clean-out, revamp soon! Who's in?!)
Anyway, we thoroughly enjoyed our early afternoon stroll and leave it to little sis to find the coolest shooting spots too. 
We headed to Principessa, the most beautiful store on the block and full of inspiration.
They carry everything from high-end vintage couture, to the most spectacular and interesting labels. I could close my eyes and point - and pick out the most awesome outfit anywhere in there.
 We ended our day at 3 Square cafe and bakery and planned our next mission.
 Which among other fabulous things, included getting a certain someone down for a nap!

  2. Can Jared and I just move out there and then every morning you can just come over and make me look like a pretty grown-up? (I ask this as I drink coffee in sweats.) :)

  3. Nicole - yes and yes! PS - I'm typing in pajamas so it's not always glamorous up in this piece.
