We didn't have enough people for Ultimate yesterday, but I went to my WW meeting anyway.here, and my jean jacket (not part of the capsule) has been in my wardrobe since I went to NYC in the spring of 2007. I last wore it here.
I was really glad I'd covered up a bit - the weather has been HOT this weekend!

I did simple accessories: my black leather cuff, my octopus necklace and plain white gold hoops.

I found these awesome kitten heel gladiator sandals for 1/2 price in a consignment store.

Hope you had a fun weekend!
