Primary Colors

Today was a typical weekend day.  Slept in 'til almost 8 (that's sleeping in for me), hit the gym, got my nails done, ran some errands, did a little shopping.

Zara top and jeans, Jimmy Choo flats, Longchamp bracelet
I started by wearing some green skinny jeans from Zara and instead of tempering the color with a neutral on top, I added a royal blue top also from Zara.  If that wasn't enough I added another splash with this orange Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch which my co-worker last night first commented on what a big bag it is (um, this is me downsizing) and second he commented that it looked like a giant wallet.  Men, what do they know?

Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch, Sara Campbell coat
Sadly even though it is mid-April, it feels like February so I was forced to wear a coat but if one must wear a coat, this leopard number is super fun.

Once the day's errands were run, nails were manicured and shopping was done, it finally dawned on me that I was starving.  I popped into Upper Crust on Newbury for a slice of pizza and tried to stay in my zen place and ignore all the tourists in town for Monday's Boston Marathon.  As I sat there, eating my slice and minding my own business, a darling girl came up and commented on how she and her sister loved my style.  It's really so very nice when someone goes out of her way to pay someone a compliment.  She asked me if I wore vintage.  I would love to but just don't as my shopping skills don't translate well to vintage and consignment shops where one has to pick through a lot to get to the gems.  She did tell me about a vintage shop in Cambridge that I think I will go out of my way to check out.  It's called Vintage Revenge and can be found here.


  1. I LOVE this outfit on you (and I did laugh about this bag being downsizing, you're a woman after my own heart). So lovely that you got complimented about your style, but I'm not at all surprised about it. You (I want to say "we", I'm going to try and plan a Boston trip later next week so will be in touch!) should definitely check out this vintage store..


  2. Yay I look forward to your Boston trip!!!
