I am totally into anything 60's botanical print/Miami art deco/vacation inspired these days, and this outfit and shoot seems to touch on all of that! Behind the bamboo plants, you can just barely see the dipping pools of Pinewood Social, just outside my office, and just outside of reach (believe me, I have seriously considered going on my lunch break, but I'm trying to like, be a professional or something.)
I picked up a whole lot of the Marimekko for Target collaboration (placemats! A swimsuit cover-up! Salad plates! My friend just gifted me a beach towel!) but this Appelsiini top is by far my favorite. Paired with black jeans & strappy heels, it's become a go-to for a night out of drinks with friends. I wanted to make it a little more classically "work-friendly", so I paired it with a fitted pencil skirt (that's a bit too fitted, and for sale in my Poshmark closet right now) and my beloved clogs.
I loved the way this turned out! The boxy top + fitted skirt silhouette is perfect. And seriously, I can't say how much I love this top. The combo of the fun Summer-y print and flattering fit (boxy, comfortable after eating whatever you want, but STILL flattering) is a winnah!
This week has been busy with something every evening after work. I typically thrive like this, but sometimes, in the midst of all the crazy, I still find time to feel down. Yesterday at lunch I was READY to turn that mood around, so I went on a killer run, and realized I have so many great things coming up to look forward to:
- I'm getting a new bed on Friday and planning to do a mini room makeover
- Going raincheck kayaking on Saturday (literal raincheck from last Saturday)
- Old co-workers wedding on Sunday in Louisville which is going to be on giant party
- Going to San Diego next Thursday for Marisol's bachelorette (and I get to see Sundar after a LONG time!)
- And when I get back in Nashville, it will be Talent Week/Talent Night at work!
And that is how I'm laughing instead of crying today. Did this just turn into a Thankful Thursday? I think so!
What's coming up in your life that you're looking forward to? Share with me so I can be excited with you!
