Stripe Out

Hello, sweet friends! Now that my comps exams are finally over I'm working toward getting back into a more regular, every day groove. For weeks I spent a crazy amount of time researching, outlining, writing, and studying, over, and over again (and can I just saw boy that job is a time sucker), but now that my test are over and I'm finished with those notes and faux papers that I wrote for the weeks leading up to the exam, all of those prized paper materials are just sitting in my car, right where they belong (ok, maybe I should at least move them out of and into a school folder? meh, maybe later!). Besides those golden notes that are now sitting in my car and not in my hands all day, every day, I have found myself with some spare time and a hankering to just wander around beauty counters and get coffee with friends (which is something amazing to do after weeks of having to say, "Oh, I wish I could but I have to study!") Anyways, since Monday I've definitely spent some time wandering around Ulta and Sephora (and I think MAC is next up on my list of places to go), and also got coffee with my trusty Phoenix Style Collective crew (you're ready for the 2013 Arizona Blogger Conference, right? It's coming! More details soon, but mark your calendars! It's sure not an evening to be missed).

Getting back into the groove of every day life also means that it's now time to settle back into my usual outfit photo taking routine (and man have I missed it!). I truly am SO ready to style up some cute, spring outfits and bring a little sunshine to this little blog of mine. Oh spring, I really hope you're a good one! Ok, I've got a busy day ahead of me and I'm off to make the best of it (and maybe pick a new lipstick or two to brighten things up, HA)!

What are you most excited for this spring? Will you be joining The Phoenix Style Collective for the 2013 Arizona Blogger Conference on April 27th in downtown Phoenix? I sure hope so!

  1. very cute! love how laid back it feels

  2. Love your striped top. I completely get that feeling of relief, this is my first semester of grad school and my first two classes just finished up this past week, I was going crazy. It's such a nice feeling to get things accomplished!

  3. I love stripe-y tops and this one is no exception!

    That conference sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun!

  4. those are the perfect clogs! congrats on finding them!
