happy monday, my december is off to a great start!
h and i had our staycation date this weekend at the Radisson Blu downtown, the room was gorgeous and i didn't want to leave! the location was super convenient too! we were able to walk to dinner and a movie. we saw catching fire, which i thought was better than the first movie (although the ending was really bizarre... SPOILER: it was really awkward to have a close-up of Jennifer Lawrence trying to look angry/confused). i kept comparing hunger games to divergent while i was watching the movie (i just finished the divergent books and i was underwhelmed by the last book). i am back on team hunger games and thankful to h who sat through the 2.5 hr movie...he isn't really a YA fan.
i have also done a little shopping for myself (and others!) this month, here are some of my favorite purchases:
i bought some really cute shirts from jcrew factory online- including this polka dot top and the lace top i featured in last week's friday's fancies. i have my eye on this plaid shirt (but it's never in stock in my size!) i also scooped up the linen merci tee from jcrew since it went on sale.
i found the perfect tory burch fall flats on sale at shopbop the other week. the flats are tan suede with pretty gold signature medallions.
i am tempted to buy a pair of d'orsay flats (piperlime is having a huge sale on shoes, 40% off flats, 40% off pumps, 25% off boots with the code SHOES).
and i am still loving my 'joan of arctic' sorel boots from last year. these things are weather-proof - i wore them all last winter and they can take on wet, snowy, cold chicago winters. i'm not looking forward to that kind of weather but at least my feet will be dry and warm!
what are you loving lately?
