It's Monday!

I got the Tory Burch Robinson Tote today but I don't think I'm keeping. Details later.

Today's outfit is simply and comfortable. I want to capture it because I hardly ever wear pants - I wear skirts, jeans, and shorts almost 99% of the time. These pants were a GAP outlet find a few years ago but since got lost in the big pile of clothes I own. Time to declutter! I am glad I found it. It's the perfect fit all over and super comfy.

Today's photos were taken by my 13 year old. She wouldn't stop clicking even though I told her to.  Who else would be able to make me look this silly?! :)  I love you, Jasmine!

What a beautiful Sunday! Is there a better way to enjoy it than having the most delicious Xiao Long Bao and Shui Zhu Yu in one meal and walking it off in Boston Public Garden and Newbury Street? That's what I did today with my family in this very outfit + a trench and swapped the sandals to these Loft Talia Low heel sandals. The sandals are very comfortable for walking and super cute in person. I have the natural color.

OOTD: Black Lace and Coral

It was a beautiful day today. That made me very happy.  I am going to enjoy the great weather for the next week as much as I can ... before it gets too hot.  I'm really not thrilled about New England weather. There are not many days for outdoor activities.  We either freeze our heads off, or get covered by mosquito bites.  Last week Tristan went to soccer practice when it was in the low 40s, and came home with a huge mosquito bite on his forehead. Seriously?

On today's outfit: the black lace top naturally became one of my favorite tops after I bought it a couple of month ago with huge discount. It's gorgeous and withstands my weekly washes beautifully. I love clothes that are low maintenance.  Ann Taylor is having a 40% off entire purchase sale. Use code CITYCHIC. Get this top here.

Have a great weekend everyone. Lastly I want to share some iphone pictures Jasmine and I took from a walk in the neighborhood last evening. It was a beautiful evening even though it was on the chilly side.

Have a great weekend everyone!

The weather is finally starting to warm up. Yesterday was so cold and windy and wet that I thought winter was never going to leave.  Good weather means good spirit. Even though I had my crown prep done this morning and suffered a whole lot of drilling and yucky mold making plaster in my mouth (it was so nasty that I was gagging), I went out after work to get some pictures taken of this outfit. It was 75 degrees so I kicked off the tights I wore during the day. Daffodils and Hyacinths are blooming. Grass is green and sky is blue. Just a beautiful day. 

Outfit Details
Loft peach ruffle top (old)
J.Crew city mini (old)
J.Crew burgundy blazer (last season)

Kate Spade Checkered Franny Coat

I scored this coat last weekend at the Kate Spade outlet store during the F&F sale.  Tried it on, loved it, and took it home. Loved it so much that I took some pictures of it the very next day. (Very rare these days since I've been extremely busy.)  Then Monday happened. The week was a emotional roller coaster.  I was sad for the dead, the injured, and their friends and families. I was mad. Is this what we all have to live with from now on? There is no safe place any more?  I'm glad the manhunt is now over with the second suspect caught Friday night, otherwise I wouldn't feel safe going out or sending the kids to activities.  

I love the checkered pattern of this simple coat. It's simple and chic. The big black round buttons are adorable. The material is 100% polyester, and it has a raincoat feel. I like that it's machine washable.  The coat works very well with black and/or white outfits; and it works great with brights too. I can't wait to try more pairings.

Anyone knows what a Franny Coat is? I have never heard of the word, and google didn't help either.

I picked up this cute Bow Terrace Leigh bag in ostrich egg, and Sailor's Knot Hinge Bangle that I've been wanting for a long time but was sold out.  This Bow Shoppe Collar Necklace looks super adorable too.  I don't own any KS shoes so I don't know if they run tts.

And these KEDS Kick Sneaker in Navy Gingham! I think I NEED them!
