The lazy days are upon us, but that doesn't mean these ladies skimped on style last Saturday in the North Loop.

What are you wearing? H&M pants, shirt from Buffalo Exchange, Chinese Laundry shoes.

Favorite North Loop spot?  I love the Bachelor Farmer.

A piece of fashion advice that you don’t follow? The rule about never mixing brown and black — they look good together.
