Given the warm weather thats suddenly swept through NYC, I decided to break out my floral prints and panama hat. I’ve been wearing this Annie Griffin top paired multiple ways lately: like a white skirt or black skinnies. That’s why I love florals, the combinations are endless. This time, for a shopping trip in the city, I went for a laid back look with loose jeans and cozy wedges.
This week I’m taking a staycation before I graduate and begin to study for the bar. That means I’m lying low, relaxing, and doing the things I love to do. No other outfit I own says “hakuna matata” like this one.
Josh and I had so much fun on Saturday in Newport, Rhode Island. The weather was beautiful and so we were in such good moods. When packing for Newport, I felt like my new Sail to Sable tunic dress screamed ”Newport prep” aka “pack me”. So I did. I’m not sure if you can tell from the pictures but it has the tiniest bit of roped fabric at the hemline creating a unique scalloped effect. And I just love it. And so did Josh! And he never loves my clothes.
I’m pretty spoiled from being a college student and then a law student these past 7 years. I’m able to start classes on most days at 11am and sleep until 9. So this past week of study days waking up at 6 has really taken a toll on me. Hence, the designer bags under my eyes. My key to getting up in the morning and looking awake during the day has been: coffee, eye cream, and clothes that are equally comfy and chic.
Tomorrow is my last final exam, then I have a few leisurely days to write a paper (in the park, maybe!), and then freedom!!!!
I always have a hard time finding dresses I love because I’m even more picky since I’m about to splurge and I want one that fits me perfectly. Well, this time I fell in love with 2 dresses. I had to befriend the sales girl in the dressing room so that we could go over a list of pros and cons for each one. I went with this one ultimately because it was a little more conservative, but I have my eye on this one now.
Last night, Josh and I attended a gala at The Plaza Hotel to support our favorite non-profit organization, Turnaround For Children. Every year that we attend I’m so inspired by the people at Turnaround and reminded that there is so much left to do outside your personal sphere of the world. I watched the movie “The Happiness Project” a while ago and it said that one of the best things you can do to gain inner-peace is help others and make yourself a vital part of a community. It’s not always easy to make big leaps like Turnaround, but starting with small steps helps too.
This past weekend was uneventful since I spent it in the library studying for my final exams (over 20 hours of studying, ugh!). Although my schedule is filled this week too, I have a few fun study breaks planned. The first is a tea party with Persona early tomorrow before classes. I haven’t been to a tea party in years, but I already know what I’m wearing – this floral dress I received from Lily & Violet. For girly parties like tea parties or bridal showers it’s easy to dress up. All you have to do is think what you’d wear if you were meeting Kate Middleton for lunch, but didn’t want to try too hard (nix the fascinator).
