i'm back! whew, it's been a crazy couple of weeks. i'm happy to report that i'm nearly settled into my new place with my roommates and getting back into the swing of real life stuff. ya know, like getting dressed in something more than shorts and a tee shirt (as seen above).
we've had the most beautiful weather in Chicago the past few days. mid-70s, clear blue skies and a cool breeze. it's like the first little tease of fall and i'm very into it. while i am really looking forward to being able to layer tops and things, wear scarves, and pull out my fall boots, i'm also realizing that i should savor the last few days (or weeks) of summer weather that we have. since, ya know, we'll have to wait 9 months for them to return.
this skirt was one of my favorite purchases from the last few months and pairs perfectly with this beautiful black lace top. when i first put this outfit together, i wore a black cami under the top but didn't like how you couldn't see the lace. the white cami really makes it pop and be the center of the outfit. add a couple pops of color and you're all set! this top will be a great addition to my autumn/fall wardrobe.
