Shirt – Anthropologie / Hat – Urban Outfitters / Shoes – H&M / Watch – Nixon / Pants – Studio 12 20

Yesterday Sam and I had to head up to LA for a couple work meetings.  I am doing some design work for a few specific clients and he had to pay a visit to our LA showroom.  We woke up at 5:30 (ouch), dropped the babe off with grandma, grabbed coffee at Pete’s (our addiction) and hit the road just as the sun was coming up.  I immediately reverted back to the “old me”…pre-baby, where I used to do this all the time.  It made me kind of miss my former work days and the freedom to go where I wanted, when I wanted.  Trust me, Rylee is well worth the sacrifice, but it was certainly nice to have a day like this…especially since Sam was with me.  We never have day trips together, just the two of us, so it was a fun change.

We had a bit of walking to do, so this is what I wore.  Comfy, casual.  I just got these fun new platform flats from H&M.  When I saw them, they reminded me of a tamed version of THESE that I love, but for a fraction of the price. Yay!  And I’ve been loving all of the colorful pants I have been seeing everywhere.   I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a mint pair…but I haven’t found a good fit yet (any suggestions!?)  I got these coral ankle pants from a local boutique called Studio 12 20 in Encinitas.  They have a whole loot of different colors….but I can’t seem to say no to coral these days.

I hope you all have a great weekend.  It’s raining cats and dogs here, which almost never happens, so we are enjoying our saturday in pajamas drinking hot cocoa.

OH…last thing.  Reminded by my post title…I wanted to share with you a blog my friend Jill started called Casual Friday. She is gorgeous (understatement) and has style for days. Check her out.

    Your outfit is lovely and your loose casual braid is perfect!! Also…I must know…where are you standing? Is that your door? I’m in love with the details! The color of the wood, the black metal accents. It’s great!

    I love this look so much, it kind of reminds me of my casual favorites, minus the lust worthy coral jeans you’re wearing. I too have been seeking out mint skinnies…and coral ones. I might just have to check out the pair you have!

    Your pants are so perfect! I just bought myself a pink pair. They looked light in the store but out and about they’re pretty bright. Oh well. Hah. Also, the backdrop of this is amazing. I need doors like this in my life.

    I’m so glad that you’re doing that giveaway on Sometimes Sweet or else I may not have ever found your blog!

    Love this look.
