Turquoise


My love affair with this blazer continues relentlessly. I have literally been throwing it on over everything since I bought it.

As soon as I picked up this delicious silk shirt, I knew precisely what I wanted to wear with it: a pair of crisp, clean white shorts. I love the color contrast so much, and the way the belt breaks up the whole silhouette.


Everything is vintage.
Untucked! I am already imagining a dozen ways to wear this. I think oversized silk shirts are undoubtedly one of my favorite things to wear.

In other news, I am finally home! I never thought I could miss my bland little suburb so much, but being away from my friends and my routine for so long has got me incredibly excited for this year to start. In some ways I feel like this summer hardly existed, that it was just a blip, nothing more than a long weekend. Looking back on everything I did in the past ten weeks, it feels like a different life. And honestly, I'm so excited to get back to mine!

Exciting thing: on Saturday morning my local thrift shop is having what they call a bag sale, where you can come in and fill up a bag with stuff for ten dollars! Meaning I will have plenty of goodies to show you soon.
Another exciting thing: I am dyeing my hair soon! I dyed it last October and was extremely pleased with the results, so here I go again. Nothing crazy (like platinum blonde or magenta), but it will be noticeably different. Just wait and see...
Yet another exciting thing: Tomorrow I am traipsing into New York City with two of my favorite ladies, Emmy and Sylvia, for a whirlwind day of fabulous adventures. Expect lots of pictures, anecdotes, and perhaps some new clothes upon my return!
