| blouse: H&M via clothing swap | leggings: Zella | boots: Frye | purse: Kate Spade | watch: c/o JORD |
Last weekend I found it- a comfortable AND put together uniform for the Fall. A long-sleeve silk blouse (I have several I rotate through) + my Zella leggings (I got these at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this year; since then I've been living IN and living FOR them) + boots (broke out the riding boots for the first time this season, it felt really good) + some accessories AND done! What you can't tell from these photos is that this blouse covers everything necessary to fulfill the leggings as pants rules.
This is nothing special, but it was the perfect outfit for a bright & brisk Fall day, when I met up with my friend Ashley & squad about town. Quick warm fuzzy story: Ashley and I worked together at camp after my sophomore year of college. A few months ago she texted me to say "Hey, I'm coming to Nashville! Would love to get your recommendations and hang while I'm there!" Isn't that a fantastic part of life, when someone you haven't seen or talked to (only laughed at their tweets) in YEARS gets in touch and then you hang out like old friends? I had the best time with Ashley, her sweet boyfriend Chris, and her famous parents. And of course I love playing tour guide in Nashville. When Ashley asked me for recs I thought, I can come up with a few things. One master thesis later...I realized I've done a good job of trying out what Nashville has to offer.
If any of you are planning a trip to Nashville anytime soon, (or you already live here!) let me know! I will gladly send over my list of "Nashville's Greatest Hits As Told By Priya."
Work has been insane this week! Rarely do I have days that are filled with meetings, but that's what the last few days have been like. I don't hate it, it makes me feel valuable :)
In terms of my personal life, and evenings after work, it's been relatively chill. Which is good, because next week is going to be n u t s o.
You may recall last year I mentioned a volunteer haunted house we put on for kids at a nearby community center (check out this crazy costume); this year, myself and Kevin are in charge of the whole thing (next Wednesday!) I'll be spending my weekend over there getting things assembled, along with some babysitting and cooking for lunch bunch sprinkled in. Then next Saturday is Ethan & Andrea's wedding! The last wedding of the year (that I'm in.) My dress is hemmed (thanks Mom!), Hunter is getting his speech ready, and we are SO excited for how epic that's gonna be.
Have a wonderful weekend friends, and thanks for reading! If you need me, I'll be hanging pipe & drape and playing with smoke & mirrors.
