Happy Monday all!  It’s back down to the 20s in Texas.  See… crazy weather.  At least, it’s a nice excuse to wear my winter coats.

I really love this sweater {last seen here}.  It reminds me of one of my closest friends M*.  When I visited her in Germany a couple of years ago, we did a quick girls trip to Paris.  The sweater was one of my souvenirs – the other being a pair of Repetto flats since they weren’t available stateside back then.

Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend!  There’s never enough time to get everything done.  Christmas decorations are half-boxed and all over the living room.  Guess what a certain someone should be working on right now instead of her blog?

    BTW did you see my comment asking about the Valentino pumps?

      Hey Alyssa! Sorry, I didn’t see your comment asking about the Valentino pumps. {And sorry I keep changing the formatting of the comments. I was getting a lot of spam and now you’re the second person to say a comment was missing. I went ahead and embedded them again so hopefully it works better!}

  13. STOP! I love this look! Haha :D It is chic and comfy all at once, I wish I could achieve that…

  14. WOW…Mr. S has been doing an amazing job with your photos! I love that sweater and also the leggings, the leather panels are so cool.
