California weather has been across the board this week. What better excuse to start playing with spring layers? Over the weekend I purchased this new cat blouse from Gap, along with this fun printed scarf. It matches everything in my closet. Fun fact? I was (and still am) battling a rather severe head cold while taking these photos. I can barely breathe.

It was a bittersweet weekend for me. The highlights were sushi with a friend, shopping, and finding this blouse on the sale rack, with an additional 30% off (I had been wanting it for some time - I have a thing for cat prints!). I also got a big promotion at work last week, and I am now the manager the most darling boutique in my downtown! I am elated. In less than two years I have gone from a new hire, to manager. I'm very proud of myself!
The low points of this weekend were the insane head cold plus allergies I have come down with. My body is putting up quite an honorable fight, however I still feel like I have an elephant seated on my shoulders. Also, the skinnies I am wearing here died this weekend. It started with a small rip in the inner seam, and right after taking these photos, they gave up the spirit. For 3 years these were my go-to jean, and they will be sorely missed. I tried to purchase a replacement pair at Gap over the weekend...Imagine my despair to discover that their denim has changed! These jeans (the exact same wash and cut) are now a jegging. Not my taste. I don't like it when denim as a whole lot of stretch (no more than 1% please!), and now the "new" version of this jean as 2%.
Other than that, I spent the weekend filling up on clear fluids and trying to get as much rest as possible.
