At this point, adrenaline is not just running through my veins, it has fully replaced my blood. I've been working like a mad woman on actualizing a passion project these past few weeks so I thought I would take a nice vacation. Ahhhhh... wouldn't that be fantastic if I had time for that? In the meantime, I've decided to try an emulate relaxation mode by sporting this dress I picked up in Bali. A nice breezy light cotton dress makes for a good pretend mental vacay.
PS - I'm all island out - my bracelet is from Boracay, Philippines.
Oh yeah, it's a true vacay outfit now, homies.

Date night with the hubby - sexy time, oh yeah! Ew, TMI, Marie. TMI. For a split second I wanted to get all dolled up and go to the gorgeous Meritage at the Claremont in Oakland. A couple of hours beforehand, I realized I wasn't in the mood to play dress up. All I wanted to do was be with Mikie and talk, laugh and just hang at a casual romantic restaurant. And that's exactly what we did, my friends. It had been too long since we had a solid block of time, and so we exchanged stories, food and kisses.
I love that man so much.
Romance is alive and kickin.
Jacket, F21 (the most awesomest buy ever!)

Event hopping calls for layers.
This is where all my Man Repeller stalking comes in handy - Leandra is a layerin whiz! Of course, my layering skills are much more conservative and tamer that hers, at least this time around.
Walking around in the cold going from place to place, I started soff fully loaded (uh, not that kind of loaded - that comes later in the evening ;) ). Layers are all ON. I always view my outfit in its layered stages since once I'm at the events, and consume a couple glasses of Proseco, I slowly peel off each layer. Cue stripper music. Not!
Jacket not pictured. D'oh.
Ya know my long kimono hot pink vintage jacket? Imagine that over le outfit.
Now, good job using your imagination, kiddies :)
Sweater, Bluefly (can't remember brand - bad Marie!)
