I have been wearing pants for the last couple of weeks and I really needed a break.  I really like skirts and boots etc.  But I feel like I was deceived by the weatherman.  This skirt is ridiculously warm.  So wear with caution.  But I figured if I went lighter (weight-wise) on top, I would be okay.  This was a good idea.  But I was not the only one at work that feared she had dressed to warmly for the work environment.  Either way, this skirt always makes me happy.  I love tweed and a colored tweed in colors that I like is always fabulous!  I have been sore from my workouts the last 2 days and really needed flat shoes.  The flats I wore are a patent black loafer, but the CeCe ballet flat shown above is a good substitute. 

What do you do to get yourself out of a fashion rut?  Do you have go to pieces that never fail to make you smile?

Today is one of those days that you want to snuggle up in bed all day or just spend time in front of a fire with a cup of tea.  I did a little bit of the former prior to my yoga class.  Now I am just wiped and considering the later for the remainder of the day.  By the end of the week, I am usually very tired.  But after today's yoga practice, I am very tired.  I think that I'll have to incorporate more rest time into my week.  I have recently discovered Lululemon apparel.  And what can I say, I am in love.  The cuts and the fabrics are fabulous.  I adore the jackets.  And I have decided that this Forme jacket II will be my "official yoga jacket."  The fabric is a black and purple semi-abstract design which I love. It keeps me warm but not too warm.  A great layer over a tank or short sleeved top.  The yoga pants are from Athleta.  They are called the Kickbooty pants.  I really like this bottom and have it in black and heather black.  The material is soft and breathable.   I am always on the look out for comfy breathable work out clothes.  Puddles beware!  My rain boots have a microfleece lining to keep my toes warm during the deluge of rain.  Perfection.

Yesterday weather-wise was an all around blah day.  Rain in the morning, peaks of sunshine at lunchtime and more rain and fog in the evening.  Luckily, I was able to sneak out for lunch and grab some rays in the afternoon. But by dinner time, more rain.  Ugh!  I picked up this top of during one of the recent 40% off sale at J. Crew and I absolutely love it.  It is fun and light after all the warmer knits I have been wearing with the recent arctic weather we've been experiencing.  I met D for drinks and tapas and we caught up on life and love.  Oh so many stories, lol!  Then we headed to the movies to catch American Hustle.  I see why this film is getting so much buzz.  The cast and the writing is phenomenal.  The fact that some of the events happened in real life just add to the pull of the movie.  But what sells the movie is the clothing and the facial expressions of the cast as well as the endearing quirks that makes each character human.  Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper knock it out of the park.  And the leading ladies, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, more than hold there own.  Definitely a must see and a likely Oscar nominee.  

What are your plans for the weekend?  And will the weather slow you down?
