busy bee

I had such a fun weekend — exactly what I needed before launching into a hugely busy week.  Amazing brunch at Mercer Kitchen, some fun dinners at our favorite neighborhood spots, a little shopping, a spray tan (my second ever — booked for $25 on Lifebooker!) and all capped off with a trip to see Harry Potter in 3d with Kristen [1]!  I could have maybe done without the rainy Saturday and Sunday nights (as I type this, Coco is trembling next to me), but overall a perfect little break from the usual insanity.

I found this Joie dress and these Elizabeth and James heels at Saks the same day — hugely on sale, so I couldn’t resist picking both of them up!  I was originally going to save this whole outfit until Fashion Week, but I broke it out on Wednesday for the Cosmopolitan Summer Splash!  It’s such a perfect style for those hot days in early fall — warm September colors, light and loose August fabric and design.

A quick word on my hair in this post, because I did two things to get it: First, I wore my hair in a loose bun for hours, backcombed slightly for extra volume (I have a tutorial on this coming up soon — you can see a picture here [2] if you want a preview).  Once you take it down, it falls into loose, pretty curls (I combed them out slightly for smoothness).  Second, after I took it down, I parted my hair on the opposite of my usual side and flipped it over — instant amazing volume!
