I had such a wonderful weekend! For once, I actually took most of the two days off from work, blogging, and my store to hang out with friends and relax with my husband. I had two wonderful brunches and spent 4 hours sipping on tea and chatting about life, love, marriage, and success with my incredibly inspiring friend, Arielle (Her healthy recipes are ridic).

It’s so rare that I actually take time off just to hang out and it felt really really good!

Moving on to today’s outfit. I love a good monochromatic look every now and again. Considering that oxblood (it’s a real color even according to Wikipedia) has maintained the number one spot as the hottest hue for the last few months, I thought I’d pair two of my pieces together.

Imagine this same outfit with a black or white blouse. Meh . . . It would be ok. But the matching shades make it look chic, on trend, and fabulous for a day at the office.
