Lobsters and Converse

Hello, World.

Roughly a year ago, I noticed a bunch of people wearing this sweater with a lobster on the front (in navy). I was totally obsessed with it, and really wanted it, but waited too long to see if it would go more on sale, and it sold out. J. Crew factory recently released the same sweater in grey, and I purchased it immediately. If I still wanted the item after a year, I figured it was a good buy. I’m actually glad I got it in grey instead of navy blue. Navy is my go-to color, and so sometimes I want to wear my navy jacket or vest, but don’t have a ton that isn’t navy to wear it with.

I love this sweater so much! I like that it can be work alone, for a more springtime look, or with a button down under it, or with a vest. It’s versatile and comfortable!

Gingham and Monograms

Hello, World.

I have a new appreciation for weekend mornings. I feel like summer usually feels like a perpetual weekend, even when I’m working, but Saturday and Sunday mornings during the school year feel so important. I love being able to just relax, de-stress, and absorb lack of responsibility. This morning was great, and I finally had the chance to sleep in, take my time getting ready, and then I hung out with friends. Anyway, today I wore my new gingham button down, which is a blouse I’ve wanted for a few years now. I had trouble finding a good gingham, but once I found the J.Crew Factory gingham, which is light and soft, I was sold, so I purchased it during my back to school shopping!

I had a great Saturday, and I enjoyed putting together one of my (hopefully) last summer 2014 outfits. Getting ready this morning I realized just how ready I am for fall. See that coffee cup? It’s a pumpkin chai latte, and it was heavenly. I’m so excited for all this fall has to offer as far as my classes, being a student leader, getting to know new friends better, and just enjoying life! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Truly,
