How preppy do I look? We’re moving out of the city in the summer to a smaller town north, so we’ve been hunting for apartments. We drove up the other weekend to see one of the places we were interested in, and I wanted to make a good impression. Apparently, that meant looking like a suburban mom. The search is going well so far.
The saddle shoes are a great deal. They’re comfortable but still very cute. I bought my pair maybe two years ago, and they’re still for sale at the Payless site. I don’t do the sweater over button-down combo too often, but I’m liking it a lot these days. This outfit doesn’t follow my usual “uniform,” but I’ve been thinking of trying out other silhouettes now that it’s warmer. I’ve gotten way too comfortable with how I dress.
Here’s a closeup of my necklace! It’s another one of those cheap accessories I just picked up randomly. I’m not one for dainty jewelry these days, so that’s another personal mold I’ve been trying to break.
Wore this yesterday for our usual Saturday lunch out! The oversized sweater is serving me some 90s realness and it feels good. I’m trying to stick to this light palette theme for spring, although I’ve already cheated a few times on work days. But I’m not gonna count those because I barely try on work days anyway.
It’s been chilly the last few days, so I was able to get away with a bit of knitwear, just when I thought I could start packing away our winter items. Ah well. I’ll take this weather over the scorching heat that I know for sure is coming in Vegas.
Spring has also inspired me to wear braids! I did a rope lace braid with a side ponytail. I haven’t done braiding in a long time, so I was quite rusty, but I managed to figure it out again. I love it so much. I’m gonna attempt a crown braid one of these days.
