If you're friends with me on Facebook or if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you've likely seen this outfit and/or these photos. It's a quite simple outfit, really, but I'm obsessed. I've been in love with this dress nonstop ever receiving from eShakti a few months ago, but it's hardly left me since the weather turned warm and I could wear it without tights. I'm sure I'll describe it like this every time I wear it, but it's pretty much my dream dress. Lavender, gingham, fit and flare...Sigh. Of course, my love for it is only enhanced by how perfect it looks with this necklace. I got this piece from a J. Crew outlet at an insane discount. I've lusted after J. Crew statement necklaces for ages now, but I've never been able to afford one. When I saw that all of the necklaces at the outlet were 50% off, plus a nifty 10% student discount, I couldn't resist. However, the J. Crew gods were even kinder to me than I was expecting. It must have been a different price than the $54 it was marked, because it ended up being $15. Somehow, I actually get to call a gorgeous J. Crew necklace mine, and I didn't even have to dip into my savings to do so. Not like I have much in my savings (broke recent grad and all that jazz), but still. You get the point.
Life lately has been all about starting my internship, slowly unpacking (still), and hanging out with old friends. I'm enjoying the work that I'm doing for the internship so far, and getting to work from home or Starbucks is an added bonus. I feel like I haven't had much time to read blogs, but I'm enjoying having things to do. Not having a set schedule every week or being able to plan everything is weird for me, so keeping busy helps. I'm not used to not being in control of everything, so I'm having just a little bit of trouble adjusting to this point in my life. Post-grad life, man. It's weird, in an exciting yet terrifying way.
P.S. I'm having a flash sale at my shop my closet! Most things are $5 or $10, so you don't want to miss it.
Now that I'm finally getting around to unpacking my boxes, I'll be able to play around with my wardrobe a little bit more again. Although realizing that I've barely noticed that half of my clothes are still in boxes was kind of a rude awakening about how many clothes I have. I may have a slight problem.
By the way, we need to talk about "Game of Thrones." I won't spoil anything, but... Mind. Blown. (I'm hilarious) That was probably one of the most horrifying images I've seen. I still can't get over it.
