This past weekend, Thomas and I had our friends over for dinner Saturday and spent Sunday sipping mimosas and getting hooked on Homeland. It definitely was not the most productive weekend, but I sure enjoyed being a little lazy ;) I also want to thank you for all of your helpful comments and tips on ways to stay in shape and be healthy. I’m trying to put together some goals and a plan- We’ll see how that goes!

P.S. I used this clip free curling iron to get these curls. I have naturally pin-straight hair, so this kind of curliness does not happen very often! I felt like I had naturally curly hair all weekend. (Confession: I wanted curly hair so bad when I was little, I convinced my mom to let me get a perm in the 5th grade. It didn’t turn out so well…)

Cape Queen’s Wardrobe/ Sweater Gap (old, similar)/ Jeans 7FAM/ Boots Michael Kors/ Purse Stella McCartney/ Lipgloss Stila

I’ve always thought capes were really chic (thanks to Rachel Zoe) and have had this one sitting in my closet for quite some time. I pulled it out last weekend to bundle up for the Lab Event and have been wearing it ever since. I love when I re-discover an item that has been hiding in the back of my closet. On another note, I have been working out almost everyday trying to get back in shape after the holidays. Actually, I have been trying to get back in shape ever since I graduated in college. I was so active with dance and working out with a trainer in college and have had a hard time getting motivated and making the time to stay fit since then. I have been taking spin classes and the occasional pilates class, which I both really enjoy! I would love to know, what are some of your favorites ways to stay in shape? Or healthy eating tips? I’m always curious about other’s fitness routines and ways to stay healthy and in shape.

My current favorite things around the web:

-Leslie Mann wearing Honor NYC was hands down best dressed (in my book) at the Critics’ Choice Awards. Had you heard of this line before? I had not, but I’m so glad I did! I have been drooling all week over their stunning designs and feminine frocks.

-I tried on this white leather Theory jacket in their store and can’t get it out of my mind- It would be oh so perfect for spring in SF!

-I created a Pinterest board dedicated to Valentine’s Day sweets and am planning on trying a few out this weekend. It’s never too early, right?

-I shared my favorite spot to dine for V Day  in SF (or a date night) over on Shop Sweet Things.

-I added a bunch of new favorite’s to the Glam Shop- You should check it out ;)

Happy Weekend!

Velvet Dress

Dress Theyskens’ Theory/ Trench Awear/ Purse Tory Burch/ Belt UO/ Tights Target/ Sunglasses c/o Tory Burch/ Boots Michael Kors/ Ring Samantha Wills

I’ll be the first one to admit that I thought my velvet days were long gone (um, second grade?) but I proved myself wrong when I spotted this dress. The little cap sleeves are actually mesh and the fabric stretches just enough to fit perfectly without being too tight. Since I wear dresses more often than I wear anything else, my boots and tights have been my go-to with this chilly weather. You can find me in a similar combo probably 5 out of 7 days of the week!
