Sunday morning brunch is possibly one of my favorite things in the world. Breakfast food and good company = best combination. On this particular day, I asked Bobby what the weather was like (since he walked Miku). “Not too cold; it’s actually really nice out.” He told me I would be fine without a coat, in fact, because it was that nice out.


It was freezing and windy and I could have used not one but three or five coats. Luckily for me, the scarf I wore is approximately the size of a large blanket, so I wore it wrapped around me as such. Plus, Benchmark had lobster bisque. The moral of this story: Always check the temperature yourself and go to restaurants whose chefs understand the importance of hot soup on a cold day.

Unrelated, but I would like to apologize to all of the people with aversions to velvet (and I know there are many). I grew up in the 90s; velvet was practically a way of life. Nirvana lyrics fit all aspects of this post, so that worked out beautifully – a 90s miracle, if you will!

p.s. I made a small run of these velvet jackets for the site, and variants in other fabrics for Emerging Thoughts – just waiting to get my computer back!

  1. This happens to me when I ask my father What's the weather like… He says: oh it's warm and nice…. and then I freeze to death :D:D:D

    You look great as usual:)


  2. Absolutely gorgeous! You are such an inspiration, you make me lust after velvet when I'm usually quite averse to it! I adore the jeans and booties too!

    Btw, good lesson learned with checking the weather yourself! My other half constantly makes the weather seem mild when it's freezing… thank heavens for scarves and soup!

  3. I love everything!!! I love the colors, the layers, the proportions, the mix of textures, prints, your make-up, your hair, everything!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ How do you manage to look good all the time?? ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Oh, my. I'm completely in love with the velvet jacket! COMPLETELY. I want one. I've already checked the Postlapsaria and Emerging Thoughts pages at least four times since I saw this blog post, I'm so in love!

  5. I don't know if I could wear a velvet jacket but, I can't avoid my love of velvet pants for cooler weather occassions, you're not alone. Love those shoes!

  6. I enjoy the velvet that you've been styling up! I think velvet is just intimidating for some people – me including. I get a little uneasy on how to style it and not end up looking like Stevie Nicks on crack. But you have great ideas and always look very chic. Keep it up!

  7. Yes velvet was big in the 90's, I had a pair of green velvet converse low tops. And I wish they would bring them back.

    Remember the velvet chokers with the frilly blouse look?

  8. I love velvet! But maybe it's because one of my first formal dresses my mother ever bought me was velvet ๐Ÿ˜›




  9. i absolutely love those jeans but i can't seem to find them on the website. do you know anywhere else they would be available? i'd love to get my hands on a pair. you make them look so cute!!!
