T-shirts and Totes

Just a quick post for today since I'm writing this at 1 a.m., and I have a 9 a.m. class in the morning. My body clock is all confused, so I'm having issues sleeping, waking up in the morning, and basically functioning during the day. I left my creamer in my brother's fridge (where I stayed for a few days after I flew back), so I haven't been able to make coffee. I know, I know. Poor Elana. 

I've never been a T-shirt person, but I couldn't resist this cat print one. It was necessary. I almost wore my cat ring with it, but I decided to overload on foxes instead. I mentioned before that my brother and sister-in-law got me this tote that was on my wishlist for Christmas, and I've been using it nonstop ever since. It's pretty darn adorable, isn't it?

I still haven't finished unpacking, so my outfits this week are mostly just what's sitting on top in my suitcases. Fortunately, I have Mary back in my life to make me look good, and Katie and I have another class together this semester, which plenty more outfit shots with her (and Lexi on our coffee dates) as well. 

Speaking of Katie, we just figured out that she'll be coming home with me over spring break, and I can't tell you how excited I am. I love showing people around California who have never been there before, and it's Katie's dream to move there. Is it March yet?

  2. Digging the red, white and black look. Good luck as you get back into the swing of things.

  3. This is such a cute look! That grey skirt looks incredibly comfortable and I absolutely love your red cardigan! No coffee?! How are you functioning? Haha

  4. I'm not much of a tshirt person either but I have this one and wear it all the time too :) I love your animal kingdom combo- that tote was a great gift! Good luck with your crazy schedule!

  5. You look sooo cute. Red is such a great color on you, and although I'm not really a t-shirt person either, this cat print is too adorable to resist!! <3

  6. I am the worst at sleeping and resetting my body clock when school kicks up again. I'm not at all a morning person and my 8am classes where I need to lift heavy things and put them down make me super cranky so I hear ya guuurl.
    LOVE this combination, totally going to have to try to recreate it with my wardrobe. The casual tee looks perfect all dressed up like this :) And that tote is totes adorable (Sorry, that was lame, see above statement about lack of sleep)

  7. That shirt is so, so cute! I LOVE the cat print. And the fox tote, too! I am just about to make my own pillows and paint things on them, and I think now I have to do a fox. Love.

  8. Your bag is so cute! And so are your pictures! Great post :)

    Lots of love!

  9. Hopefully you get back your normal sleep schedule soon! Foxes are super adorable. So jealous of the tote and ring!!

  10. Lookin' cute per usual. Love the fox tote and ring-the perfect accessories for a foxy lady! And that cat shirt? Purrrfect. (oh so punny)

  11. Uhh how cute is your top?? LOVE the cat print!

  13. aww I hope you get back into your rhythm soon! I know how it feels to be "off" and it is definitely not a fun feeling/experience.
    In other news though, this look is so sweet. I love the details. =)


  14. You look amazing in these and the photos are PERFECT. I don't know how you stay so busy all the time. But I miss your frequent posts!

  15. GAH! You are just the cutest! I love all the animal prints!

  16. Oh my gosh, I know exactly what you mean about the creamer!! Coffee is just not the same without your favorite creamer. I recently discovered Coffee Mate's Vanilla Nut and now no other coffee tastes as good!

  17. Sometimes I feel like it's just easier to pick out something to wear when you haven't unpacked since you have a limited number of items to choose from, haha. Love that printed t-shirt though. Work it, girl.

  18. Ah, the wee cat faces! This top is too cute :) I love it paired with the red! And of course, that fox tote. What a great etsy shop!

  19. I am absolutely in love with that cat top! So adorable and it goes so well with your tote bag :)

  20. Because of this outfit, I feel like I must own a red cardigan.


  21. I love the fox tote so much! And the cat print top is just too cute:)

    Oooo sounds like fun! I hope Katie likes CA :)

  22. yayyyy for Katie coming to CA! Show her the goodness that is the Golden State. And, duh for cute t-shirts, you have the most amazing collection of dresses but an adorbs graphic tee is always good in my book! Bonus for matching it to your ring/tote!

    perfectly Priya

  23. elana, my dear! I love the cat shirt (I have it, too!) and I'm always forever FOREVER loving your style, of course. I miss you. I'll see you sooon hopefully!
