I've got my new room/closet mostly sorted, so I need to stop thinking that I have "styler's block"; do you know what I mean or is that totally ridiculous sounding?
This is nothing ground-breaking, but I've found the easiest way to look and feel like you put some thought into your outfit is ~layering~. The top I'm wearing here is actually this trapeze top; it fit perfectly under this new-ish dress I picked up at H&M recently for pretty cheap; and I also loved what the "textured" look of the top added to the outfit.
And purple tights! I'll know I've made it in life when I have tights that are every color of the rainbow. These are dark enough to almost look like a neutral, but surprise, they're actually the best color.
This necklace was a present from my friend Andrea (last Christmas? my birthday?) I will never tire of statement necklaces and costume jewelry in general. What's not to love about giant faux gemstones? (*Gemstone anecdote* in the car this weekend, Hunter asked me, "What's one random hobby or topic that you'd like to learn more about?" And I said "Gemstones?" I'm not entirely sure where that came from...but the more I think about it, I DO want to randomly learn about gemology.)
And a couple quick pics from my weekend in Asheville:
We drank a lot of craft beer, went on a hike that was double what we intended, made two brand-new genuine friends, actually enjoyed some vegetarian food, listened to a lot of 80's music in the car;
and we'll definitely be back.
Hope your week is off to an awesome start! Thanks for reading.
