fall, where you be?!
the sleeveless mock neck sweater. for when it’s really fall but it’s 90F+ out… i digress, mock necks are super effortless and they go with all skirts (which i have a ton of). i actually have this top in two colors because that’s what i do when i love something — it’s a normal thing, RIGHT?! i’ve also paired it with the marina wide leg pants as well. the material isn’t super thick so it’s a good transitional piece. here i paired it with a full seamed skirt in the prettiest light blue, a super cool toned one. light blue doesn’t look that great on my skintone but this one is perfect! i really like these full seamed skirts because of the fit and i also sized down in this for a high-waisted fit, aka: over 30-fit.
side happenings: WHOA. what a FUN weekend! it felt so good to be “on the scene” again seeing familiar faces i’ve missed. the @hotelzazaaustin grand opening party was over the top crazy. (in a good way). haha, it’s been a long time since i’ve gone to an event like that!! it’s a beautiful space, in a totally swanky zaza-style. my GF Nicole // @loveofallthethings hosted her first event at @paddywaxcandlebar and you already know i’m a huge fan! i’ve taken one of my BFFs for her bday and it’s a great gift idea/quality/experience-type gift. this time i went with a spicy xmas scent w/a wood wick for a little crackle crackle it’s going to be so FRIGGIN festive at casa JD (sarcasm). i don’t have a fireplace so this will be it :D. BTW, if you haven’t had the butter toffee pretzels at Trader Joe’s, you better run and get some… before i buy em all out. :D
