The weather here lately has been all over the place so layers it's been.

Rainy and windy this morning then just windy and warm this afternoon. This morning I wanted to wear boots and a scarf but figured by the time I'm off work, I'm going to be dying.  Here's what I decided on...

Jacket - Ann Taylor Loft
Blouse - Banana Republic
Jeans - Forever 21
Earrings - Silpada
Necklace - Gift
Ring - Silpada
Watch - Gift

I'm going to head over to The Pleated Poppy and see what everyone else is wearing this week.  You should check her out.  She always has the cutest outfits!

For the most part living here means you can pretty much count decent temperatures year round, very little rain and more wind than you would like.

Last week we got an amazing break from all that sun and warm temps.  We got rain!! Lots and lots of awesome rain!

Sadly it's over now.  Might be next year before we get another week of rain so I enjoyed it while it lasted!

This weekend things were back to normal.

Which is good.  It allowed me to cut the grass and trim the bushes which after a week of solid rain, was a desperate need.  It was nice to open all the doors and windows and air things out.

All of these photos are from an interesting article  I read.  These were the ones that really stuck out for me.  Interesting to see how much things have changed.

A few months ago while my Mr was on travel I was having the worst time trying to sleep.  Eventually I settled on leaving the tv on QVC to sleep.  Now before you think I'm nuts, here's why.

QVC is on 24 hours a day everyday but Christmas.

QVC doesn't have commercials so there in never a change in the volume of their programming.

QVC is live tv so you never know what might happen.  And they do have some pretty funny hosts but here's what happened...

I fell in love with one of the hosts Shawn Killinger and with one of their designers Issac Mizrahi.  Together they could sell ice cubes to Eskimos!

Here's the proof that I my have a problem...

Is there a designer or brand you are obsessed with?  Anyone I really need to check out??

I am going to go see what The Pleated Poppy  wore this week.  You should check her out too!

It's amazing how quickly life happens and days then months passed.  A year ago today was one of the hardest days of my life.  Some days it feels like forever and others it feels like minutes.  You are gone but not forgotten.

Of course most of the country had had a horrendous winter and our "little" rain storm certainly doesn't compare but rain like last night...it just doesn't happen here.

We don't usually have enough rain to make a puddle let alone have it still standing there the next day.

And sunny SoCal...well you can forget that right now too!

We needed it though and then some so I am thankful.  For the first time in forever, I slept great too.

And this little guy couldn't be happier!!

Happy Thursday dolls!  Muah

Another Wednesday with The Pleated Poppy.  She keeps me motivated to try and find cute things to wear!

I love when I find things that are unexpected and can do double duty.  This super cute jacket is really a fancy sweatshirt with a gazillion possibilities.

Jacket - Issac Mizrahi
Tee - Merona
Jeans - Mossimo
Scarf - Your's Elegantly

I rolled up the sleeves to show the cute pink detail and threw it on with a simple white tee and jeans.  Boots to keep my feet warm but really thus would be great with flats too!   I love my new jacket!
