I’m baaack! After a relaxing week at home in California, I’m now back in New York City :)  It was so nice to see my family and some of my closest friends while I was at home last week.  I spent most of the time catching up with old friends, doing a little bit of shopping, and laying around the house.  It was such a luxury to just turn off my brain and not worry about anything for a week :)

I wore this outfit in California to meet up with friend.  I won this pretty skirt from a giveaway held by Aya of Strawberry Koi a few months ago and I couldn’t wait until it was warm enough to wear it!  It’s actually a skirt that she refashioned herself and I love the happy colors in the plaid pattern.  The skirt worked perfectly with my mint green crop top and funky colored wedges that I bought at TJ Maxx with a gift card.

Since I was away last week, I’m so very behind on all of my blogs! I plan to do lots of catching up in the days to come :)

Tell me: What’s new with you in the last week or so?

  • GAH! You look adorable! I love how you brought out the mint and made it perfectly summer! :)

    Aya ? Strawberry Koi

    • Awww thanks Aya! And thanks again for giving away this skirt on your blog- I’m so happy I won it! :D

  • This outfit is summer feeling. I love the colours! *also do you like the new Disqus? I was thinking of getting rid of it at one point, but may keep it anyway since I am on Blogger… Thoughts?

    • Thank you! To answer your question, yes I do like the new Disqus! I actually was using the native WordPress commenting system until a few weeks ago, when I decided to switch to Disqus because I missed some of the features that it has. Let me know if you have any other questions about it- I’d be happy to answer them if I can :)

  • You look gorgeous – LOVE that plaid skirt – so cute!
