wheeeeeeeew! it was quite the weekend over here, you guys. my bestie/roommate's birthday was on Friday, so i took most of the day off to spend with her. we went to a movie, got our nails done, and celebrated with some more friends later that night. the celebration continued on Saturday with brunch and then Mike and i met up with some of his family for drinks, since they were in the city for the evening. my car battery completely died on Sunday while i was at Starbucks, so i had to have my roommate and Mike come rescue me by helping me jump the car. and when i say 'helping me', i mean that Mike took the el all the way up here to do it all for me while i watched. he's my hero. we had a low-key Valentine's evening (i don't really care about doing anything for V-day, i just wanted to hang with him!) -- we started watching a new show and enjoyed some take-out food and at-home cocktails. it was the perfect way to spend a Sunday night, if you ask me.
to the outfit: remember how i talked last week about picking a color and using your accessories in that color to create an outfit? well, here we are again with that same color - i can't get enough of it! this time i'm using a totally neutral canvas of a grey sweater and grey denim, but added in the pops of that rose quartz in the necklace, bag, and shoes, and paired it with my favorite camel coat for a little more dimension. so. easy.
put together + comfortable + stylish = win win win
