Happy Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  What are you getting into this weekend?!  I would love to know!

Today,  I’m taking the afternoon off of work to spend some girl time with my mom.  We have a tradition of shopping together for Christmas gifts.  She has a lot of work buying presents for 4 children, 4 spouses, and 4 grandkids.  You know that I love to shop and so every year we go to the mall and I help her pick things out for everyone, including myself. 🙂

We have a history of going to Anthropologie for the girls and Patagonia for the boys; it’s probably all because there is easy parking to both stores in Palo Alto.  But this year, we may change it up a bit.  One store I’m thinking is J. Crew.  We have to pick a store that is in every city so that it’s easy for people to return stuff, if they should so desire in their respective home towns.  Plus, I’ve been loving their stuff lately.

Here’s what I’ve been loving….

I would die and go to heaven if I owned this J.Crew dress.  Where and when would I wear it, you ask?  Well, honey those are details!

This sequined skirt makes me squeal with happiness.  What’s that you say?  I would only wear it on New Year’s and maybe not even then…details, darlin’.

I have gone mad for those yellow shorts!  What’s that you say?  It’s going to be December when I actually unwrap the gift; the San Francisco summer will officially be over and by the time Spring arrives again, I may not be completely into yellow ruffled short shorts.  DETAILS.  I don’t do details.  Who is this voice of reason that keeps typing away at this entry?  Could it be my lack of shopping lately has made me completely evaluate the practicality of every piece of clothing?

    oh, kate, please ‘go’ for the long sequined skirt; it is beyond elegant and sails into ‘classic’ as in “will never go out of style” ! Maybe it would be a great gift for your Mother to give to YOU this Xmas. . . i look forward to reading your blog each morning and the inspiration you give helps me cope w/ being stuck here in a small mid-wester town where ANY inspiration is quite hard to come by. . . so thank you.

      Oh yes, I do enjoy picking out the gift that mom gives to me. 🙂 A very backwards tradition but one that she begged to start at about the seventh grade – my mom was tired of trying to figure out what i like and I was more then happy to help her. 🙂 The sequin skirt is fabulous and classic!! I’ll let you know after Christmas.

      I’m so happy you look forward to reading my blog. Thank you!! Sorry about the lack of inspiration in your town. Graham and I have been missing Chicago lately – we’re even strangely missing the cold.

    You MUST get the yellow shorts. They’re so YOU Kate! And I can hear your voice in today’s blog, hilarious! Have a great afternoon with Kathy!

      I LOVE them! I wish I had the model’s legs but that’s a different story. We must – no if, ands or buts – get together this weekend!!
