Happy weekend! We had a week of warm weather here in Boston and finally cooled down this weekend. Going to be beautiful in the next few days! Jess's instagram reminded me that I should take advantage of the nice weather before it gets cold and dreary again. So my goal for next week is to be able to have lunch outside of the building at least once. I know it sounds easy, but if you know what my schedule looks like these days you won't be so surprised that I it's harder than it sounds. I work with people in 3 different time zones in the US. Lunch time meetings are a norm nowadays. To me it still beats 7 am meetings if I lived in the west coast and had to accommodate east coasters. 

There were some decent deals last week. However I didn't have any time to post. I did manage to grab the Michael Kors Selma Satchel in Navy during Bloomingdale's 2 day 20% off sale. I have wanted this bag for a long time, but it was so popular that it was back ordered for a while. I plan to use this bag as my cheaper alternative to the Prada tote for work. See it on beautiful Elle here. It's out of stock now at Bloommies, but still available at Nordstrom and Macy's.

I wore this outfit last weekend when it was hot and humid. These seahorses made me really happy. The shorts version of this print from J.Crew this year is my favorite.  I bought the dress version and thought it was way too thin and clingy for any of my practical usage model. But I love love the print, so I searched for other formats. The shorts (in size 00) didn't disappoint. It's made of heavy weight cotton and the fit is heavenly for me. I love the fact that it's medium rise, so it hugs better.  The girls' Frankie short in Sea horse is another option but the fit and make are just not the same.

  1. Vicki, you look very good in white.

  2. i've been feeling the same way about getting outside. i'm working nights this week and have promised myself that i'll try to get outside either before or after my shifts. maybe that will make nights a bit less depressing. if nothing else, i'll get a little bit of color before the summer ends. i agree, that print is adorable.
