playing catch-up

My have I been a bad little blogger lately.  I have been super slammed with work these past couple weeks and have not given ample time to much of anything else.  But hopefully (fingers crossed) all of my hard work will pay off very soon!  Later this evening I want to share with you a new restaurant in Downtown LA, in which I attended their grand opening press party.  But for now, here are some things in the Internet world keeping me inspired:

 How amazing would it be to look out your window and see this? Or live two hours away from Paris in general, like Kristin does now?

I have been looking for a great clutch, and would love to add this Jennifer Haley snakeskin one to my collection. I just entered a giveaway to win this fun bag--click here for your own chance to win.

I'll take a wall of shoes one day please. And Lela Rose's shoe collection, while we're at it.  I learned recently that she is doing a collaboration with Payless--that definitely seems like something worth checking out.

This grilled asparagus and ricotta pizza looks fresh and delicious, and super simple to make. You can find the recipe here.  The best part is that you can substitute whatever toppings you like. My roomates and I have already planned to try it out soon...even if they don't know it yet.

I love the look of a plain tee, jeans and a blazer.  The detailed buttons on this one kick the entire outfit up a notch.

I really love this photo--from the outfit details to how you can see the photographer in the sunglasses lens. She looks super chic and cozy, and that clutch needs to get in my life.

Nothing is cozier than a big chunky sweater, and when it's a fun, bright hue like this one--what's not to love?

This seems like the perfect time of year for wine tasting.  I would love to pay another another visit to Malibu Wines.
