Over the Weekend

  • I wore shorts for the first time this season. I used to not be big on shorts but then I moved to a stuffy apartment in the city instead of an air-conditioned house by the ocean. Now shorts are my BFFs.

  • I tried to get Jim to take outfit photos outside with me. His response? Maybe if it was the Apocalypse and we were the only ones around….fighting zombies (I’ll keep trying).

  • I wrote a research paper on female dominance in lemurs. Have any questions on the topic? I am an expert as of 24 hours ago.

  • I played way too much of the iPhone game, rat on a skateboard. Anyone ever played it?

  • I ate yummy jalapeno and banana pepper pizza, Oreo cheesecake and jelly beans.

  • I was with my family in spirit for Easter.

Throw in a Bit of Buisness

I have been waiting to wear this dress for forever! I got it for Christmas from my boyfriend’s parents. I have been trying to hold off on wearing it until Spring because I think it is just the perfect Spring dress. I love stripes, blue, shirt dresses, and waist ties. Check, check, check and check again.

I started out my morning (when it was 45 and rainy) wearing this with a brown cardigan. It made me look super business professional. Not exactly the look I was going for since where I work is super casual, but I went with it. By the time I took the outfit photos it had skyrocketed to a humid 70 degrees so the cardigan had to go.  New Jersey spring days can never seem to make up their minds. It seems one second it is 30 and the next it is 90. I think I may have to move somewhere else just to experience what a comfortable mid-60s day actually feels like!

I am super excited to style this dress in a bunch of different ways this summer. I already have a few ideas. I love the changing seasons!

Blueberries Blackberries

Today was wonderful out! The sun was shining for most of the day. It was a little cool, but not too cool to need a coat over my sweater. Great way to start of the week! I hope it keeps up like this.

Now if you’ll excuse me… I am going to return to my cup of tea, episode of Mentalist and March issue of Glamour magazine.

Olive, Grey and Happy Day

I love the cardigan I am wearing today. It is from Modcloth and it is kind of a weird shape, but the color and material is awesome. You can’t see in the picture, but it is kind of an olive color and a grey color. The grey parts have these little bronze flecks. On top of that the material is nice and flowy and comfy. I really wanted to wear this awesome ring I got for Christmas today, but for the life of me I can’t remember where I put it. I hope I find it soon.

I think it is slowly transitioning into Spring and to celebrate I painted my nails bright yellow! You can’t tell at all in the pictures, so I took a close up shot of my nails.

Other than that I having a pretty unexciting Sunday. I unfortunately have lots and lots of reading to do this week, but on the bright side only 3 more weeks of classes! On top of that I had an excellent Saturday. I spent the morning at the mall with the boyfriend and had a yummy Starbucks breakfast. I also added a few summer pieces to my wardrobe from Forever 21.

As if that wasn’t enough to make it a great day, I also got to try this semi-new Vegetarian place called Maoz. The food was pretty good, but the service was absolutely terrible. I had a ton of fun anyway. I love trying out new food!

Happy Sunday (Okay Happy Monday – my computer decided to hate me last night)!

Short, Sweet and Striped

I am going to make this a quick post because I just finished up writing a really annoying 8 page research paper and my brain needs a break! But here are some photos of what I wore today. I love the back-detail of the dress I wore which is why there is the awkward backwards picture.

In other news I am thoroughly enjoying all of my new Trader Joe’s food (I highly recommend). Also all I wore over my outfit today was a light raincoat and I could have gotten away without it. Spring is almost here!

A Change of Pace

I was planning on doing an outfit post today on my favorite sweater since it was 25 degrees this morning when I woke up! However I got way too hot by mid-afternoon and had to change my outfit before I could take pictures.

Now I am wearing a short-sleeve blazer (yay short sleeves) that I have a love/hate relationship with. I really like the stripes and the short sleeves, but its kind of short so I never know what to wear it with. Today I went with a bright tank to liven things up a bit. I am not sure I am 100% in love with this outfit, but I figured I would post it anyway. It serves well for doing homework/hanging out.

P.S. I rearranged some stuff on my blog last night. I tried to make useful links more accessible/visible. If you have any suggestions of how I can make my blog better feel free to leave a comment.

The Opposite of Spring Cleaning

I have some new additions to my wardrobe this week. I bought myself some new pieces for Spring with the optimistic hope that eventually Spring will arrive. It is yet another day with temperatures in the 30s here in NJ! ! At least I can wear my new owl necklace!

Anyone else have Spring clothes burning a hole in their closet?
