Finally getting warm enough to start spending every waking moment out of doors. We grilled hot dogs and dined al fresco in celebration.

Just when I thought I was over studs, I completely fell for these beauties. There's something delicate about the studding and the vibrant color makes them somehow acceptable. They also fit like a glove, making one feel deceivingly coordinated whilst skipping around in them. Best served with a glass of cheap white wine.

H&M blazer
James Perse t-shirt
Ann Taylor belt
thrifted bangles
H&M jeans
Cesare Paciotti shoes

PS To answer a few questions from my last post - my nail polish is Revlon in "Minted" (nothin' fancy!) and still working on the J Brand jeans style (though I think it might be Lexington).

    I can't wait for the weather to warm up in SF, so we can have picnics in the park and just relax outdoors. Having dinner outside with friends sounds like the perfect plan :)
