Hermes Halter Top DIY, Ice Cream & Grapefruit Gelee

My past weekend started last Wednesday. I had dinner with friends, Happy-Hour drinks, more dinner, shop all day with BFF from Northern Cal and ended the weekend going to a jazz club with BF and eating way to much sweet. I had dessert almost every night. Yikes!Anyway, I love to use scarf as a bright accent for simple outfits. Of course after learning how to turn a silk scarf into a halter top, I try to come up with different ways to wear this look. Since I didn't want to go backless and showing off my bare abdomen the other day, I decided to layer a white thin cami under the DIY silk halter. The end result was causal and stylish. I got so many positive comments from various gals throughout the day.


What I am Wearing:

DIY halter top with Hermes scarf --- Any 36 inch square silk scarf will suffice (click here to learn how to)
Seven jeans
Ann Taylor white cami
Pink Chanel heels
These are the reasons I can't show off my bare abdomen anymore. I think all the calories went through from my mouth to my stomach and ass. Why does this always happen? I don't regret having Coldstone ice cream and the super luxurious grapefruit gelee (jelly). At the bottom of the gelee cup, I found the most delicious creamy custard. I love to visit Cafe Blanc whenever I am in the Newport Beach/Costa Mesa area. Savvy guys and gals, if you are in the area, this is a great place to visit for handmade gelato, desserts and divine macrons.
For my indulgence last week, I will be paying in running and exercising time. It is so much easier eating than exercising. Darn it!
