Confession: after Italy, I got on this vacation hangover diet where I kept trying to eat the things I ate while in Europe. This included starting every meal with a dinner roll and butter (reminiscent of international flight meal service). It also included constantly eating pasta and multiple espressos (with sugar) a day. To say nothing of the Mulino Bianco cookies I just can't get enough of.
So, I haven't been in a bloggy mood because things didn't fit right. And I wasn't really in the mood to care because I was having a vacation hangover.
Sometime last week, the California switch went back on and I started running in the mornings again. I've cut back on the cookies and cappuccinos. Part of the reason we keep our blog is to stay accountable - to variety in our closet, to staying in the know, to dressing for the career we want to have - and to stay healthy so that clothes we invest in, continue to fit! I mean, I don't think Paloma ever has any issue (so fabulously svelte, sigh), but I do know we share this philosophy about consistency.
OK, so this is last week, where I pulled out an old skirt from Forever 21 and threw it with an old jacket from H&M. Something about grey with camel just makes so much sense to me.
Oh, and I love my Massimo Dutti t-shirt, it has sheer sleevelets which are just the right, dainty touch to a comfy tee.
