I’m currently going through somewhat of a blogging and creative rut. I shot these photos today and sat down to write this post, but instead I sat with my laptop open in my lap for over an hour without a single word typed. All of the “yay summer!” posts seemed so disingenuous when all I really wanted to write about was why I’ve been MIA for the past couple months.
I intentionally haven’t shared many life updates lately because it’s been a challenging few months. I’ll save all my words about this for another proper post, because it would be a crime to pull focus from this stunning Old Navy jumpsuit.
I’m loving the Havana-prep style of this outfit. So breezy and comfy for those sticky summer days! Agood linen jumpsuit never lets me down during the summer; they’re light enough to let the air circulate and my legs don’t stick together! They’re my ultimate summer uniform. Hah. The black and floral pattern is killing me, too. Add on these fun mirrored sunnies and blush canvas sneaksand the outfit just kind of comes together on its own, don’t you think?
Oh heeeeyyyyy, spring! Nice to see ya! Not only am I enjoying the extra hour of daylight in the evenings (it’s no longer dark when I get out of work, hey!), but the temps have been consistently getting warmer. That means it’s time to shed a tiny tear and pack away the winter wools and furs and pull out those spring clothes! And since Old Navy is killin’ it per ush, I knew it was time for a trip to spruce up my closet…
For the first time in weeks, the sun is shining and I’m finally feeling myself again. I’ve been down with a nasty sickness for the better part of a week and barely left the house. However, yesterday was too beautiful of a day to waste on Netflix and my couch. I was inspired to take a shower (AND wash my hair!), put on some makeup and a cute outfit and get out in the fresh air. Amazing what a little sun, air, and some new duds from Old Navy can do for a girl!
To the untrained eye, the ASOS website is an intimidating beast. The monstrous online retailer sells just about everything imaginable from tons of different designers. A veritable smorgasbord. However, the real treasure of the ASOS website is their own collection. For the price point, the quality of ASOS label is stellar, and I would happily exclusively order ASOS label clothing and shoes because I know exactly how they will fit every time.
As time goes on, I’ve become compelled to shop at only select few places. Gone are the days of Forever 21 hauls (anyone over the age of 21 would probably pay to never step foot in there again). Even my wardrobe now is completely different from just a few years ago as I find myself drawn to cozy fabrics, muted hues and feminine silhouettes. Nothing else quite embodies all three of these things like my newest love: the pleated midi skirt.
I’m still reliving our Maui vacation through the photos we took (yes, I know it’s February). However, when I finally got through the mountain of pictures and videos, I realized there was a recurring theme: this outfit. I ordered this simple, striped cotton dress from ASOS before we left and it became my most-reached-for item once we were there. It was perfect for throwing on over my swimsuit after a beach day and cute enough to wear if we went out to eat afterwards.
