So we got some shockingly great weather this weekend, seriously unseasonably warm. I even spotted some brave people rocking shorts. I think we definitely needed it. I’m unfortunately currently on Day 2 of a cold (Diet of water and Nyquil and water and Nyquil), was bound to happen and I’m looking on the bright side. I usually get sick once during this season, so hopefully, I’m just getting it out the way. 

I got this bag for a steal, it was last one at store and had been knocked down much more than online as it has a few minor scratches. And they still offered me the additional 30% OFF. Definitely my new go to bag for work.
I wish all my pants were as comfy as this pair. I’m going to have to find a  few more in this style, maybe a heavier fabric though for the cold, worn with some booties. 

And as always…

    Would you give us your routine + products used for this twist out? I'm new here, but noticed that question never seems to be addressed.

    I love the pants. I have SO many like that. I was one of the people braving the weather in shorts this weekend (even though I'm in DC) the weather was really nice here as well.
