Closet Diary 5.9.12

This Jason Wu for Target dress was my birthday present to myself. It’s one of the only pieces of clothing I’ve purchased recently and I love it to pieces! The print and shape are so fun and girly! Unfortunately, the lightweight, flowy skirt was not a good match for the crazy strong wind we had today and I had more than a few Marilyn Monroe moments!

Tomorrow I’m taking the bus up to Portland to visit my family for Mother’s Day! I haven’t seen them in about a month and a half now, which is crazy! I’m so excited for a weekend of good weather, good food, family, friends, and puppy dogs!

So fun to twirl in too! 😉

Closet Diary 5.8.12

For the past week and a half I have had an insanely bad cold. I got it seemingly out of nowhere and it just left me completely brainless and unable to function. Add a full schedule of midterms to that and let’s just say last week was not a good week. However, Eric came to visit over the weekend (despite the fact that I was a coughing, sneezing, sniffling mess) and I tried my best to perk up and have some fun. In addition to studying, we had a movie night, played lacrosse at the rec center, and treated ourselves to pizza and ice cream!

Today finally felt like a functioning day. The weather was beautiful and I spent the majority of my afternoon working on a sewing project. Plus, this was the first time I’ve actually put an effort into getting dressed since getting sick. I love stripes and florals together, especially with a little pop of pink!
