Hi friends! I promise I haven't been neglecting the blog. Life has just been getting in the way lately but I'm hitting back and talking about my new favorite piece.
Lately I feel like I’ve been dressing in a capsule wardrobe. I am always scouting for new versatile pieces to add to my Marie Kondo'd closet. I had my eye on this white HD in Paris tie blouse from Anthropologie, but as usual it was out of my budget. So I turned to my favorite place to shop these days, eBay. I found this blouse new with tags for a whopping $25 with free shipping.
I am wearing a 00 p for reference. The fit is comfortable but a bit tight on the arms, oh well. This blouse has beautiful details and stitching. When I was on spring break I saw a style just like this in a H&M in Arlington (VA), but the tie part was thick and a bit overbearing so I'm glad I took the plunge and bought this piece. Anthropologie's quality is just incredible. I adore this blouse, and honestly feel like I could wear it everyday, it’s so stylish. I can wear it with every pair of jeans I have and for footwear it goes the same, endless possibilities. Espadrilles, loafers, birkenstocks, chelseas, and the list goes on!
In other news I graduate on May 13, which is scary and exciting all at once. I've had an ambivalent relationship with college, but my time in undergrad has taught me a lot about who I am and who I want to be and I'm just so grateful.
I am moving forward with attending grad school next fall to pursue my MBA. I haven't quite figured out my summer plans yet, but I'm taking it slow with a little advice from John Steinbeck who once said, "Don't worry about losing. If it is right, it happens - The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away."
I hope everyone is having a beautiful April, I'm enjoying fresh cut lilacs and another beautiful spring. I'm so excited for this month, its possibilities, and the full moon in Aries on the 11th. What have you been adding to your closet?
