i just got back from a weekend trip to san luis obispo. anne‘s family invited me to join in on their little trip down the central coast. it was nice! we dropped by the mission and a museum, visited quant beach towns, and shopped around a bit. i found some really good deals while shopping in downtown san luis obispo so i was pretty excited about that! i found a black chiffon maxi skirt at urban outfitters and a pretty shift dress from gap. both are great basics that fit well and were super reasonable (about 15 bucks each). i’ll be taking the maxi skirt to nyc next month. it will be great to wear over doubled up tights. oh and that brings me to another point (or promise i’m making myself). no more shopping for clothes/accessories until nyc… no matter how good the deal may be. i’m officially on hiatus!

stapled.

here i am on saturday sans makeup, sporting helmet head, and really hiding behind my sunglasses. sometimes it’s nice to just throw on some moisturizer/sunglasses and walk out the door. so that’s exactly what i did for our leisurely saturday afternoon bike ride. brian, amy, and i rode around the neigborhood, grabbed lunch at the american, and then enjoyed a couple of beers at shotwell’s. it was a really relaxing day followed by a healthy homemade dinner and a movie. ah, so nice. 

i’m so excited about my newest staple- a sweatshirt dress! seriously, it doesn’t get any better. the color, super soft fabric, and fit are perfect (work appropriate length too). also, i was able to snag it for about half off… so i guess it does get better. score!
