THE PERFECT SERIES: the perfect silhouette

I'm going to try a new blog feature and I'm calling it "The Perfect Series."
Basically, when I see a shot that (to me) defines something perfectly, ima post it.
A picture is worth a thousand words, after all.

So to start, the perfect silhouette:

The Weekend.


-got the Sartorialist's book for my birthday and proceeded to pore over it for quite a long time and I still haven't even finished it which makes me happy. (Really, it's an amazing book and I know you know that already, but I'm just still constantly fascinated at the way that all these different people put themselves together. Whether they're wearing 3 garments or layering on 13, the creativity is stunning and completely inspiring and I could look at it forever because there's always something new to see. Ok done with that rant. Thank you for the gift, P. Obviously I love it.)
-wore the same men's flannel shirt for like 3 days in a row. It's not gross, I promise. I changed for the evening festivities. It's the best most comfortable shirt and has just that right fit where it hangs loosely but not unflattering-ly.
-shopped with my mom at Anthropologie (favorite) where we each bought the same jacket (in different colors) which proves that that store really must be some kind of alternate universe.
-watched Conan's last show which was really bittersweet but mostly just bitter because I love watching him, but still sweet because he won't be working for stupid NBC and I'm excited to see what he'll do next.
-did lots of shopping. (excellennnt) Found a new boutique that just opened 2 months ago by someone almost my age. (inspiring)
-ate a lot of cupcakes. And sushi. (two of my favorite things)
-had an all-around delightful birthday weekend in which I enjoyed the company of my darling friends and family and husband (thank you so much everyone, I love you).

-found Vanessa Jackman's streetstyle blog that all the amazing pictures in this post are from.

How about you? Any highlights?
...Is anyone else having Gossip Girl withdrawal?

It's been a year, hasn't it?
Holidays, family, parties, desserts, shopping, days spent on the couch, you know the drill.
And I've become obsessed with tea. (Don't worry coffee, you'll always be my #1.)
So that's what I've been up to.

I just found something that I absolutely needed to share, something so charming it kinda makes me want to get married all over again (to the same guy, naturally) just so I could do it like this.


...and gray suede heels to round out the perfection that this is.

I highly recommend checking out more pictures.
