This week’s finds…

• A cozy light grey sweater dress to add to my winter dress collection

• I’ve been looking for a neutral colored turtleneck for the longest time and have finally found one! The button details on the sleeve are quite an added bonus (note: is more form fitting so may want to go up a size for a more relaxed look). Put in cart now since it’s only $24!

This outfit was one of my favorites from last year and mostly due to the shirt. It’s back in stock and in more colors, too! {it got marked down to $15 – code SALEONSALE}

• Why George Clooney throws the best dinner parties

• How SuperBowl half time show artists are maximizing their marketing efforts – this year’s performer: Justin Timberlake

• The aftermath and realities following the wildfire devastation that hit California’s wine country area: charred dirt lots for sale

• One person’s take on how to dress the part (literally)

• Language immersion schools aren’t a novelty, especially around the San Francisco area and they have actually created quite a frenzy. Quite a number of schools have a long waiting list – this article explores the uptick in enrollment and a divergence from traditional education

 
In case you missed this week’s posts…
• A grey themed outfit that’s perfect for the weekend
• Cozy and warm: how about a teddy bear coat?
