Last week Benjamin and I finally had a day off together. It feels like its been weeks, which it has, since our work schedules don’t exactly coincide. I used to work weekends, he doesn’t. So we hadn’t had a day together in a while. We had grand plans of hanging pictures in the apartment, going on a run, and running errands. But after a lazy morning, which was awesome by the way, we ended up spending the afternoon at Nordstrom Rack. Which was TOTALLY not my doing in the slightest bit. Ok, yeah, it was. (Sorry Ben!) But, not to worry. It is a thing of the past now because I’ve just started my newly promoted position!!! I’m absolutely thrilled about it!

Anyways, the outfit. To me this feels like a fresh twist on classic pieces.  You should know that I am obsessed with the color yellow. I know its not for everyone but I just can’t help but be happy when I’m basically wearing sunshine. Actually this whole outfit is full of favorites. Stripes = favorite. J.Crew cardigans? Can’t go wrong. Top it off with the comfiest ballet flats and dainty necklace. Enjoy the look!

What I Wore: Quick Change

I literally had about 2 minutes to pull this outfit together before heading off to dinner at my parents last week. I didn’t think anything good would come of it but after looking at the pictures I was pleasantly surprised. The shirt and boots have a slight midwestern feel while the jeans and blazer are sleek and sophisticated. The juxtaposition of these two works well together so I may have to play around with that more. And just as I had 2 minutes to pick the outfit, I’ve had 2 minutes to write this post. It’s back to work I go!
