With the sun staying out later and the temperatures slowly rising, I’m itching for spring. Transitioning with shorter hemlines, tights, and dark florals is the perfect way to ditch the sweaters and corduroys but still keep those legs covered for chilly mornings.
This sweatshirt-esque top is from Gap. I have it in gray also because it’s perfect in every way. If you can snag it on sale still I am telling you it’ll be the best decision you ever make.

Happy 2015!! How was everyone’s NYE? I spent the night back at school with my best friends, which is always a good time. I set up a backdrop for photos, which in my mind looked much better, but I’m still pretty satisfied with how it turned out. I mean, it’s on the staircase of a college house basement. It worked for what I wanted though – just a little New Year’s flare. I wore head-to-toe Forever 21, keeping it pretty casual in a plain black shift dress, booties, and a silver statement necklace for a little extra oomph. Those booties also proved to not be as comfortable as I thought when I wore them out a previous night, probably because they’re still brand new and I was wearing them for hours – and walking around town. Yikes. Needless to say I was plenty happy to be taking them off at the end of the night.
Anyway, I’m feeling some seriously good vibes about 2015 and I hope you all are too. Here’s to a new year of fun, fashion, and TEACHING!
How’s everyone’s summer going? I have no excuse (besides summer classes and work) not to post this summer. I let the blog go a little bit the last few months with school coming to an end, graduation, senior activities, the beginning of summer, etc. I recently went on vacation to Cape Cod with my family and it was the greatest week. The weather was beautiful, we ate plenty of seafood and icecream, and spent everyday on the beach. I of course did some shopping while I was there, and thanks to myself and (mostly) my mom, I snagged a couple cute things to add to my ever-growing closet. This unbelievably cool cropped kimono is from a boutique in Provincetown. Once I saw it I had no choice but to walk out of the store with it. The red color is perfection, and the ivory design throughout makes it so interesting to the eye, but the fringe in the front is my favorite part! My mom also graciously bought me my first pair of Birkenstocks. She literally lives in birks – the woman has to have at least six different pairs, probably more. I went with a beautiful navy blue pair with a double strap, one wrapping around the toe. They’re pretty comfy, but I haven’t completely broken them in yet. I’m waiting for the day they’re finally molded to my feet! All the bracelets (except for the gold) were also found a various boutiques in Provincetown. Those I paid for myself, don’t worry. A halter top and boyfriend jeans made this the perfect outfit for a night in town and dinner by the bay. I’ll definitely be repeating this outfit more than once before the summer is over!

A very happy birthday to my girl, America. Hope everyone had a day filled with family, friends, and BBQ!
I was obsessed with this liberty tee from Free People as soon as I spotted it online. So, as a little grad gift to myself I bought it (full price – yikes!) and I could not be happier.
I hope everyone had a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend! This is the first year that my family and I haven’t spent this weekend down the shore. It’s tough since we’re beach lovers and most importantly because it’s another reminder that my beautiful grandma is no longer with us.
I do want to say thank you to service men and women past and present who risk their lives to protect ours. America is a beautiful place to live and I am grateful for it each and every day.
Now, the clothes:
