Almost Famous

 Jacket: Thrifted, Jeans: Forever 21, Heels: Loft, Accessories: F21 hat (similar), Karen Walker sunglasses, J.Crew necklace, Prada bag, Jimmy Choo for H&M bracelet, Marc Jacobs watch, F21 ring

After a day spent in the freezing waters of Ocean Beach for Leap's Sand Castle Contest (to help fund raise arts in education), nothing felt better than a warm shower and some non-sandy clothes (here's what my team made!). I was one of the few gals helping lug water from the ocean to the team and lemme just say...I'm still sore! I never built a proper sand castle before, so this was an amazing experience for me as much as it was for the kids! 

Thankfully, the winds picked up after we were done building our sand castle but it definitely made me want to bundle up as much as I could later. The winds actually made for the perfect opportunity to pull out my year-old thrifted find. This jacket is the definition of cozy and warm. It's a jacket I would never have pulled for myself before but I adore the 3/4-length sleeve, the collar and the subtle pattern. It makes me feel so much cooler than I am. 


How was your weekend?

  1. That jacket looks so comfy! Did you take any pictures of your finished sand castle? I can't say that I have ever done that either! Sounds fun! and for a good cause, can't beat that!

  8. That hat is something just short of EXTREMELY fabulous :)
    What am I saying, though? You always look like a superstar!

    I've also been lusting after a pair of Karen Walkers for I don't know how long! Hopefully my wishing will soon be put to an end! You've inspired me :)

  22. That looks so comfy and cosy! I found a similar jacket at TK Maxx about two or three weeks ago and couldn't decide if I should buy it or not. I didn't and then I regretted it badly! It's not available now... so, you're really a lucky girl having a so fluffy jacket, that goes always!

  25. nancy, i love that jacket! it's so chic, sharp and has lots of attitude!! love love love it! you're going to get a lot of wear out if it, because it will go great with pants, skirts and dresses. i bet you are still sore! that's a lot of work and carrying pails of water is heavy. take it easy and hope you heal soon. :) i don't eat pig feet, tails etc. either. lol
