I have to go now, Duane, because I'm due back on the planet Earth.

I have to go now, Duane, because I'm due back on the planet Earth.

I had a wonderfully exhausting, yet somehow relaxing weekend in the country with an incredible set of people.  I hate to brag, but I kind of have the best set of high school friends, like, ever.  If there were scientific studies that quantified awesomeness, it would be stated as fact.  One day we will all live in an old folks home together and steal each others' wigs and chase each other around on our Rascals.

This look was actually from last weekend, when a few of us had an impromptu reunion at Comet, which I have decided is far superior to 2 Amys.  I wasn't alone in that opinion, either.

Express blazer
Topshop top
Mango jeans
KMRii bag
Finsk shoes
Hermes bangle

PS Once again, a totally belated thank you: Fashion Confessions of a Mommy gave me an award and said the sweetest things about me!

Girl, I was so about to wear my white jeans tomorrow, too. Back to the drawing board, because I can't compete with your awesome Finsk heels! I'll get them one day....

Glad you had fun. High school friends are sort the most boisterous and the best, I think!

Lini said...

Ah your looking great. The pants are awesome. I know how you feel about your friends. I'm feeling the same about mine. Only one little thing , we all live like anywhere in the country so its really tough because we don't see each other that often. I love the saying friends are the family we chose on our own. Its true in so many ways! :D

SogniSorrisi said...

Those jeans look fab on you! Love the top and the bag, too.

Aimee said...

This outfit revives my need for white jeans. And those shoes are gorgeous.

Oh you look so pretty. I like the pink and white together. Very gorgeous.

Sounds like an amazing weekend :)

Kate said...

I love your jeans!! I have been on the search for white denim but haven't found a pair that are (ahem) forgiving enough, skinny white jeans are hard to pull off, but YOU, m'dear, look fabulous.

Cindy Whitehead said...

I love the light pants with the darker blazer - looks great on you!

Phyllis said...

la petite fashionista said...

Anna G said...

Where do you buy such amazing shoes? I love white jeans, I need to find a pair for this summer.

Eli said...

you look extremely chic! love this look on you

fashionforwriters.com said...

You are seriously rocking the white pants! (Are they white or just super light colored.) It's fabulous that you knew such rad people in high school. I wish there were more rad people in high school, but most of my best friends went to a different high school or I met them in college.

(PS--I think I was totally influenced by your near-daily rocking of peep-toe sling back platform heels (surely there is a shorter way to describe this) to get a similar pair at the secondhand store!)
