Stripes + Florals

shirt/F21 (similar), pants/Anthro (similar), shoes/Sam Edelman, bag/Botkier (similar here & here)

Hey guys! I feel like I don't have much to report lately since I've so crazed with class, but let me tell you - I seriously can't wait for it to cool down here. If anything I just feel like it's getting hotter...I mean, do you know what it's like to take blog pictures in 110 degrees?! Sweaty, to say the least. I know I keep saying it, but I am just honestly so sick of Summer here. Somebody feel my pain! It's almost October...for the love of sweaters, can it please just cool down! Anyway, cut me some slack if my posting has been a bit infrequent...I am just waiiiiting for the day when I can wear a sweater in some pictures without feeling like I've instantly been transferred into Hell! Ha!

Also, I freaking love stripes lately. And my fake Birks. I have a feeling they'll stay with me all winter long (socks and birks what uppp! #shoobielife).

What has your latest fashion go-to been?

So, it's official. I've fallen off the face of the earth. I'm sorry! I keep guilting myself over not posting lately, but between taking classes (oh yeah, did I mention I'm taking classes?! Another thing to check off this list!), and work (and driving the million miles between them), I've basically had no time to like. Live. Or breathe. Or sleep, for that matter. So the fact that I'm posting right now should make you feel really proud of meee!

All that aside, not much else has changed. Being so busy, and it (STILL) being in the triple digits here in good ol' AZ, I am basically living in easy Summer dresses & jorts. I've started to buy a few "Fall" items here and there, but let's be honest...I still won't be able to use them for at least two months. Womp.

So yeah, that's about my life. OH, and Daniel and I have started watching The Office. Jim & Pam! I'm geeking out. I know, we're so 2000 and late. What's been going on with you guys?! Did anyone else just start back up with school? Busyness aside, I've actually really been enjoying myself...maybe I'll post some of the projects I've been working on in the future! It feels so good to be learning again...makes me excited!

What's something that you're excited for this week?
