LUV: Lovely Unique Vintage

July 12, 2010

Hello Home and Adios Vuvuzelas!

After more than five weeks of traveling, I'm finally home! It was a great trip, but I'm happy to be home and enjoy my beautiful city again. I was told that it's been cloudy and drizzly in San Diego since I left so I was happy to see the sun shine last Saturday. We walked around Balboa Park all day.

On Sunday, came the end of an exciting World Cup. We were all dressed up in Orange. It didn't help unfortunately. The Orange team ended up losing and my little son was sad in his uniform. "So sad and too cute!" a friend said.

Hope you're all doing well. I wasn't up for blogging for many reasons during my trip mainly due to lack of down time and choppy internet connection. I hope to update and comment more often when I'm back on schedule.

Blending In

This is a bad picture after a whole day and maybe the pants make my hips wider than they are, but I was pretty happy with the blend colors. It was a hot and humid day. I love linens for such days!

Linen Suits to Beat the Heat

A pretty important meeting on a hot day. Linen pants and jacket was to my rescue! I felt cool and appropriate all day.

How do you like linens in summer for business wear? Sure they get wrinkled more than other fabrics, but nothing beats the comfort of them for me. This is a different white blazer than the one I wore on the flight yesterday. I try to keep some of the formal wear clean for meetings so wouldn't wear it while traveling.

Amsterdam to Marseille and Aix en Provence

This was my flying outfit today. Short flight so the heels were perfectly comfortable and they saved me some luggage space in my carry on. I have a few days of meetings around here this week. It was cool in Amsterdam and hot in here which caused me major dilemma when packing. I was able to solve it with packing some layer-able linen clothes.

Another week started! This is my last hardworking week before a semi-vacation starts. Wish you all a great week!

Red Dress Sunday

This is a dress that I bought to wear around the house, but then I thought it was too cute just to wear at home. I had facial and massage treatment data with a skin therapist friend in Amsterdam followed dinner and movies. My skin felt great, the food was yummy, the movie was fun (SATC-2) and I felt actually stylish and warm in a simple dress and sandals combo on a rainy day.

I doubled on the animal print accessories to add visual interest and fun! ;-)
