H&M blouse, Zara coat, jeans c/o James Jeans, heels c/o Joe Fresh,
bag c/o Roots, sunnies c/o SmartBuyGlasses

Soooo I wasn’t kidding when I said I loved these new James Jeans jeans, because here I am wearing them again this week. Grey’s just such a perfect pairing with orange and I was really feeling this blouse yesterday that I decided to just go with it.
This is what I wore to our weekly The Style Common meeting…we have so many fabulous things on the horizon and are taking a new, very exciting direction. Can’t wait to reveal more in the next couple months. These girls are the best and it’s so incredible getting to collaborate with three such inspiring, amazing ladies! 
In other news, I had to take a little break from the whole video front because I too was trying to figure out what direction I wanted to take it in. It’s such a fun and exhilarating medium, so I didn’t want to simply just replicate my blog content via video. What’s more, I’ve also been wanting to incorporate more lifestyle/health elements to the blog but wanted it to feel very distinct from my other more style-centric content.
So after thinking it over for a month or two, I finally came up with a way of combining the lifestyle-focused content with video: starting this coming Saturday, every weekend I’ll be posting a “Weekend Reel” feature that will be weekend (i.e. fitness, entertaining, food, etc.) themed! It will give me a great opportunity to feature some of my other passions while also showcasing content for you guys in what I like to think is the least effort-intensive medium: video. Because when you think about it, if you’re feeling a bit worse for wear or simply tired from your week come Saturday, scrolling through picture after picture can be less than ideal, right?
So from here on out, just kick back, relax and enjoy one of my short little Weekend Reel clips! Would love feedback once it launches, so please stay tuned for Saturday!
Happy Thursday!
PS speaking of fitness, this song (the blog title) = an awesome running song! Plus…Dave Grohl. It’s been a 12-year-long, one-sided love affair. PPS anyone else excited for Sound City? Opens today!!

    That middle close-up photo of you is fabulous! You look adorable. Not everyone, as in me, could wear those skinnies. You shine in them, and I can understand why you have them in heavy rotation.

    Looking forward to your video series. I too have been attempting to incorporate multiple subjects into my blog. I'm just wired to have my fingers in a lot of pies, so any advice and tips that come along as your blog morphs will be greatly appreciated.

    Love the houndstooth coat paired with the orange blouse. Sharp combo.

  • Reply Ramona January 31, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Those are absolutely fabulous skinnies, I had something similar just acid washed years ago and I loved them so much and wear them to death.
    They gives such an edgy touch to you classic feminine look.

    I love the idea of a Saturday morning reel – I can't wait for your first!! (Maybe one of the whole-30 diet sometime, I've been dying to know more!)
    Your coat is amazing! I love the pattern. There's something so classic about it, yet very modern. And, pairing it with the burnt orange blouse gives it an amazing pop of colour!
