Slow And Steady

H&M shorts and top, Frye cowboy boots, Latico bag, Michael Kors watch, Anthropologie belt (last seen here and here), Forever 21 cocktail ring






My weekend was spent running errands, chatting with girl friends, reading, and relaxing. Gabe and I were able to walk to dinner on Friday night and enjoy all the pleasures of summer- eating outdoors, glasses of sangria, ocean view walks, and seemingly endless sunlight (it helps that we went to dinner at 5:30pm). I welcomed the opportunity to unwind and relish the simple pleasures of summer.

Love love love this! Boots and shorts is one of the great perks of So Cal weather!

I am headed off to hot, humid, sticky D.C. for the week, where the thought of boots is miles away...poolside cocktails anyone?? ;)

PS. There's this place in Culver City right next to Ugo's wine bar that makes...wait for it....Nutella martini's!!! (they serve it with a spoon!) It's a MUST that you experience this. I thought I might die the first time I had one! Hmm...perhaps a fantastic excuse for you me and Bren to have a blogger date??

Valerie this looks awesome. I love the belt. That might sound crazy, but it's the first thing I noticed and it really made your top stand out. It's so pretty and soooo Anthro lady!! Love it!!

Also, the cowboy boots look amazing on you. Every time I see you in your boots I wanna drag mine out, but I am sans your legs so I'll just leave them for you until I can slap on some leggings to stick into them.

Great look that you can easily wear now and into fall. You go girl!

xoxo,
Carrie

I love the shorts and the belt! This outfit just works so well together. This would be a good Glamour submission. :) Gabe's photography skills are really good! I like the angle where you are sitting down.
