slip ons

I am a big fan of the 30-second dressing routine. Most nights before work I try and leave out my outfit for the next morning. This expedites the standing-in-front-of-the-closet-blankly-staring-for-5-minutes thing that usually happens if I don’t plan ahead. But on those rare days when I haven’t planned and I don’t have the 5 minutes to waste staring blankly, I almost always reach for jeans and slip on sneakers. Now I am a teacher, so I can get away with a more casual look than most. I do have to say that these shoes are the most comfortable of my usual work shoes (minus my Birkenstocks, but that’s a whole ‘nother story).

Let the slip on obsession continue…

silk pjs

I have always been a big t-shirt and flannels sort of PJ person and then I was introduced to Maison Du Soir and everything changed. Mary (whose blog I just adore) has ranted and raved about them for the past year. I thought I would give these 100% silk pajamas a try to see what all the fuss was about. The conclusion: I love them. Light as air and so comfortable. They make me feel like I am really living in luxury. I got the Jaclyn shorts and the Magnolia top for the summer and will be investing in the longer Ava pant for the winter. Their customer service team is GREAT (ask them about sizing and they are right on).  I truly cannot say enough fabulous things about this Manhattan Beach local brand.

This weekend I flew to Napa for the wedding of one of my oldest girlfriends. Since Q had to work, my best friend and I were dates. The weekend was BEYOND beautiful and I couldn’t wait to share.
