Thrifted Gingham Button Down + Zara Skirt

Here is a very typical, un-creative outfit from me. We could technically call these pieces my wardrobe basics. This gingham top was thrifted a few years ago at a thrift store near my college, and even though there's a button missing, it's been a loyal piece in my closet. I found this Zara skirt at Buffalo Exchange recently, and it's perfect. Perfect, I tell you.

I actually wore this to the beach for an afternoon of reading by the ocean with Jon yesterday, but my plan for taking photos there didn't exactly pan out. We always go to Corona Del Mar because it's usually pretty quiet, but I naively forgot about Memorial Day weekend. It was packed and far too crowded to find a spot to take pictures. So no adorable beach photos for me in my knotted sleeveless button down and cat eyes. What a tragedy. It was still a nice day at the beach though, so it was still worth the trip.

I'm feeling a little uninspired in both my writing and my outfits lately, but that's also due to the fact that I've been lazy in general. It feels a bit like summer break to me in between jobs, but I'm ready to start my new one tomorrow and get motivated again.

  3. I was feeling uninspired with blogging for a while too, but I've suddenly gotten a spark of inspiration again so I'm rolling with it for now. I hope your new job goes wonderfully and gets you feeling motivated again! (And I think these pictures turned out great even if they're not at the beach.)
