It’s the first of the month, which means it’s time to wear my staple of the year again! (See January, February, March and April.) We had unseasonably warm weather this week, so a very summer-like interpretation was needed, what with a striped nautical shirt and a bright pop of color in my shoes. Stripes and leopard are my favorite mixed-print combo, one that I’m sure I’ll be wearing all throughout the summer.
Oh, and I finally found a pair of blue heels after a few months of searching. Success!

I’ve always been a self-proclaimed neutrals gal, and I blame my love of black clothing slightly on my punk phase during high school. I love a little edge to my clothes, and black always manages to add that factor. To keep things interesting, though, I mixed stripes and polka dots for a little added interest and kept a touch of feminine in my blush-toned heels.
Did you have a great Easter weekend? My roommate’s family was here, so I spent my three-day weekend hanging out with them and showing them around Omaha.

This faux fur stole was one of the best purchases I’ve made, especially for $7. I’m always amazed at how it manages to transform something ordinary (like this cargo jacket I wear every week, it seems) into something a slightly more special.
I don’t know about you, but I am ready for some sunnier days!

After ten days or so of the same clothes over and over again from my suitcase, I dove into my roommate’s closet. Working from home allows me to dress however I’d like, and on this particular day, I wanted comfy. Black jeggings, a striped cardigan, and a silky blouse were exactly what I wanted.
And, of course, you can’t forget a little sparkle! A little old lady in Marshall’s told me she loved my necklace, asked me where it was from, and promptly told me in her shaky voice, “Don’t ever get rid of that! You’ll have it and wear it years from now. I’d wear it now.” Either my taste in jewelry is timeless or old-lady-like. Or that lady was just trying to guilt-trip me into giving her my necklace. It didn’t work.
