Elementary (OOTD)

Happy February, everyone! The weather continues on its mild course, here in San Diego, with warmer days, cool mornings and evenings, and chilly nights. The name of the game is layers. This sweater that I picked up earlier, from Future:Standard has become a serious favorite.

Sweater: Cowlneck Sweater, Future:Standard
Shirt: Merona Chambray Shirt, Target (similar here, here, and here)
Pants: AG Stevie Cords, Anthropologie (similar here, here, and here
Boots: Apeppazza 'Martin' Wedge Boots (similar here, here, and here)
Necklace: J. Crew Necklace (similar here, here, and here)

My husband and I have been obsessively watching the BBC show, Sherlock. And by obsessive, I mean, willing-to-stay-up-into-the-wee-sma's-to-watch-1.5 hour-long-episodes-even-when-we're-already-way-past-exhausted. The good news is there's only one season available to us, stateside, and that season only has 3 episodes in it.

The bad news is, there's only one season available to us, stateside, and that season only has 3 episodes in it. The second season is available on blu-ray in the UK, but not here in the US yet, and I'm already trying to figure out how to get my grabby hands on it. The show, that sets the classic stories of Sir Aurthur Conan Doyle in current day England, is smart, suspenseful, and fun - and the voice of actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the title role of Sherlock Holmes, is just yummy. I could just close my eyes and listen to him talk all day. If you like puzzles and mysteries and good character development, then I highly recommend you give Sherlock a try.

Hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Sherlock is amazing! We're all obsessed with it here in the UK. Even better: both Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch are going to be in the Hobbit - yay!
    If you want, I might be able to buy the DVD/Blu Ray and post it over for you... As long as you can watch region 2 DVDS?

  2. Didn't really catch the Sherlock fever but wanted to let people know you can watch all three episodes for a short while on PBS:

    I much prefer Downton Abbey!!


  3. One more thing...I see that PBS will be airing season 2 of Sherlock starting May 6 so if you can wait that long :) there is a short preview clip at the bottom! Saskia

  4. Sherlock is brilliant! I love their chemistry on the show.

  5. I totally got hooked onto Downton Abbey while watching some older episodes on the plane over to South Africa, but haven't heard of Sherlock. Hmmm...I'll have to check that out, no? =) Love your boots, btw!

  6. I'm not familiar with the show but it sounds fun!

    You look so cute and cozy. I also love those boots!
