For those of you who don’t know me, know me, I tend to be strung up a notch higher than most. I can get a little “all over the place”, if you will. But lately, I feel at ease for a change.

My sister/best friend has moved up to San Francisco — 4 blocks away at that, where she’s living with my brother who is also very close to me. I feel so lucky to have them just a hop skip and a jump away! Even if it is up a major SF hill.

Additionally, I have a few fun adventures planned. Headed to Chicago for a work event with Shop It To Me, where we’re hosting a book party for Jessica Quirk. I have never been there and cannot wait to see friends and celebrate her awesomeness!

Next month Blake and I are officially headed to New York — for Fashion Week and a vacation (yay!). It feels good when things start falling into place. :)

    No. :( I can’t fly out until the 9th. But let’s definitely try and get together in NY. I guess you’ll be living there by then, how exciting! Best of luck with the move if I don’t see you before then. xo

    Gorgeous, lady! What color are your Karen Walker shades? Also, dying over those shoes (as I do every time you wear them!). xo

    Laura Reply:

    Thank you, Maria! :)
    I believe the color is called “vintage brown” — tough to tell here but they are a medium shade solid brown. Hope that helps! xo

    Maria Reply:

    Definitely! They kind of looked black in these pics, but know what color you’re referring to. Thank you!

    That’s so neat that your sister and brother are just a few blocks away! And your next few weeks sound like they are going to be full of excitement. I adore the color of the cardigan on you, and those lace-up heels! Instant love.

    ♥, Jamie
