This weekend has been a nonstop concert-fest. I still managed to sneak in a teensy bit of shopping (under the guise of returning something to Nordstrom) and found these amazing leggings, thanks to a heads-up from the fabulous blogger at Red Soles and Red Wine. They’re not available online, but check your local Nordstrom store’s sale rack – at only $18.90, they’re worth it! Here’s how I styled the this morning:

Blazer – Cartonnier Flipside Boyfriend Blazer (similar here)

Sweater – Gap (similar here and I love this one from Madewell)

Leggings – Trouve

Heels – BCBG

Goofy expression – solamente yours truly 🙂

Watch – Nixon (Kensington)

Nail Polish – Nails Inc (Trafalgar Square)

I gave this polish a try this weekend – I’m intrigued by the ombre nail trend, but I must admit I’m a tad short on patience, so when I saw this magnetic polish at Sephora, I had to pick up a bottle.  Apparently the polish contains teeny tiny metallic particles that react with a magnet (hidden in the bottle cap) and results in these wavy designs! The instructions are on the bottle (and online), but I would reiterate that you need to put the magnet as close to the nail as possible in order to get the magnet to do its job. I got a little lax towards the end, and some of my nails only have a splash of the magnet effect on them. I’m still not sure if I really love it, but it was a huge hit with my choir peeps this afternoon 🙂

Last but not least: it’s starting to feel like (southern Californian) winter here, and the cats are huddling for warmth. Love them!

Two more weeks until Christmas!
