I just got back to LA after a rainy drive back (thank you for always driving Chris!) after spending the weekend at beautiful sprawling Rancho Valencia.

Fresh off the plane and facing a whole day of needing to stay awake, a walk from the Peninsula to the beautiful shops at Avenue Montaigne seemed like a good idea. Deliriously is such a good way to shop! I got this coat at COS a couple months ago and love the dramatic length and tie belt. So simple and chic in navy, and it let me get away with my white tshirt and leather mini uniform.
