Hot days, hot nights

24 Aug

I am pleased to introduce to you two of my latest purchases/obsessions: this kick ass scrunchy skirt from Nasty Gal, and, drum roll, please… my Alexander Wang Diego bag!! I decided to stop whining about it and take the plunge. I’ll be paying this baby off for a while but it’s so worth it. We all need a good splurge every once in a while, right?

So I often complain about the weather here is SF because, well, it totally sucks. Until yesterday, that is!! The heat wave continued today, topping of at a whopping 94 degrees. People, this is unheard of around here! It finally feels like summer and I’m loving every minute of it.

Ok, off to have a glass of white wine on our stoop! Hot days are great, but hot nights are even better. <3

*wearing: Nasty Gal skirt, Elie Tahari wedges, Tufi Duek open-back top, A. Wang Diego bag

    Yes, we most def need a splurge once in a while. What’s life without some treats? Love, Love, Love the skirt. It’s so eyecatching. The drapy fabric from the skirt and bunched fabric from the skirt make for the most interesting match. I also like how you kept the accessories a bit quirky and not so calculated.

    I love that skirt, and you are absolutely right, we all need a good splurge. Try telling that to SSBF though.

    God I love your skirt!
    As for the bag yeah, we all need to indulge ourselves every now and again (says the girl who just bought a camera and will be paying for 9 month. It’s like a pregnancy!) It makes me feel a lot better that other people out there are doing exactly the same!

    You look stunning as usual! I can’t get enough of your blog!

    So glad you got the bag (like to think we all had a hand in convincing you to buy it with our urgings!) And darling one, really that outfit, where do I begin, the skirt, the top the shoes are just way too delicious for words. You look hotter than the hot day you were having!

    Damn when I look at you it makes me wish to the heavens above I was young again but then you know what they say…if wishes were horses…beggars would ride! And I like to think I’m not that bad for an old gal!

    Ummmmm Wow!!! I’m speechless. I cannot stop scrolling up to look at the Nasty Gal scrunchy skirt and the Wang Diego bag of course. Although I’m trying not to look at it because I’m insanely jealous! The closest I will get to that bag is a thrift store purchase and some quality stud DIY time. Work it girl. You look smokin’ hot!! xx

    i’m not even going to pretend to not be insanely jealous about that bag!!! gahhh!!! the diego is the only bag i’ve EVER wanted to splurge on… but in leopard. swoon.
    i hope you’re enjoying it! (that’s a silly statement- of COURSE you’re enjoying it!)

    on another note, this entire ensemble is perfection. army green is my FAVORITE color and that skirt + shoes… swoon, again.
