There are a couple of items that I'm sending out to some of the Flock Together girls for them to borrow that I realized I hadn't worn in a while, so I decided that I should take pictures in them one more time before they're out on loan. This top was one of them, and while I realized later that this is not at the first time I've paired it with a polka dot skirt (ahem), I couldn't help but be reminded of how well they work together. I'm not exactly sure why I haven't busted out this shirt in so long, but I think I need to start giving it some more love soon. Of course, let's just not mention the fact that I've been so busy that I've yet to mail out this top or the other items. Oops.
It's kind of funny to me how busy I've been, and I'm very happy about it. One of the hardest parts of post-grad life for me has been not having everything planned all the time, so I've been going into each week like I'm traveling into the unknown. I also assume I'll have no plans and tons of relaxing time, but that's barely been the case at all so far. My internship has been taking up a lot of time (I got to spend yesterday in Santa Monica working with my boss at a coffee shop and then exploring some of the shops in the area), and somehow I always find myself with plans with a friends. (Last night was spent watching the seriously fantastic Jenny Slate movie "Obvious Child," which I cannot recommend enough.) Adding my restaurant job to that, and it's been great keeping unexpectedly busy. It's weird not being a walking to-do list, but it's a welcome change of pace. I've never been the "go with the flow" kind of gal, so here's to hoping I get the hang of it.
Also, if anyone hasn't noticed, I've been trying to get back into separates lately. Most of my closet is dresses, but for some reason I've been leaning more toward tops and skirts again. You know me, just getting crazy with my wardrobe as usual.
