I am not a big fan of the swing jacket but I love the girlie silhouette and the rolled puff sleeves of this one. It is made of cotton too which made it perfect for spring.

These Bally flats are one of the most comfortable patents I own. They are so soft and so flexible. You can never go wrong with their shoes in terms of comfort. The styles are a little more conservative but they are coming up with really good designs now. Just look at this one that I am drooling over. I remember back when I got my first salary from my very first job, I spent most of it buying gifts for my parents. The gift I got my dad was a pair of Bally shoes =) .

I also toyed with the idea of combining the stripes with plaid thus the bag. This is probably considered vintage now since I do not see RL making this old signature pattern of his. Plus I like its boxy shape so I kept it all these years.

Finals is next week and I have a lot of studying to do. So, I volunteered (ha ha) my sister Coco to do the post for me. She's more than just a fashionista she's also an amazing writer! ( She reads my blog so I'm hoping that was enough to convince her to do it ;-) ). As my 3 year old nephew puts it when he wants something - "Love you Coco!"

I am also dreaming of Cabo right now (blogged about it here) and the Bahamas Cruise. Unfortunately, it will have to wait until after summer. I also feel guilty spending in this economy specially with no clear picture of when it will recover. Knowing that a lot of people out there are penny-pinching does not help me get in the mood either. As the old saying goes, save up for the rainy day.

What about you lovelies? What are you doing this weekend? Have you started planning your summer vacation? Would you rather save up or go?

I hope you're having a great week lovelies!
