Just a short and sweet post to kick off the day–feeling a little uninspired currently, which gets the best of us, or maybe just overtired.
While I’m loving our new place, I’m finding between commuting home, hitting the gym, groceries, making dinner and then blogging–by the time I “sit down to relax”, it’s bedtime. I’m pretty sure this is a common struggle for most people (not even getting started on parents, because that’s a whole other ballgame) but phew, sometimes I feel so wiped!
In addition to all of that, I’ve been trying to think of ways to get more personal around these parts–I was re-reading your feedback from the Reader Survey and I know there was a lot of interest in that. I’m definitely working on a couple of posts in that realm so stay tuned.
Okay and quickly let’s talk about the outfit! I’ve been loving the bell sleeve trend since last fall and I know I already said it, but it’s going strong again for this year. I la-la-love this blouse. It’s a slightly higher price point, but it’s on sale currently, but only a few sizes left. I honestly couldn’t decide if I loved the blue-white stripe or this white one at first, but ultimately the plain white is so much more me.
When getting dressed in the mornings, I find the first thing I reach for are white tops–it’s my favourite colour–so it made sense. I did size up to a large, only because I liked it a little longer in the body and roomier in the shoulders–however, I would say it fits true to size because I technically could have gone with the medium but tend to like my tops a little oversized.
As for the jeans, loving these grey skinnies with the raw hem. This is a new colour addition for my wardrobe because the ones I had before didn’t fit right/feel good so I never grabbed them. These though, fit like a glove and I wore them three days in a row–something I don’t normally do simply because I like to switch it up–which I think brings them into top 5 territory!
