I'm baaaack! Sorry for the little [planned] hiatus. I think I am experiencing what we can call a "Quarter Life Crisis." And don't mock it - because it definitely exists. It's been quite a transition from the West Coast to Raleigh.. and I'm still in the middle of it! I miss our friends and mile-bike ride to the beach. I miss the weather (this humidity is killing me!) and I miss our church. I did a little bit of moping around the apartment for the last 30 days...
 
But I had an amazing meeting Monday that kind of snapped me out of my funk (at least for the moment) Don't you just love getting inspired? It's like a flood of happiness, adrenaline and scariness all at the same time. Which is probably why my smile is as big as it is in these pictures!
 
I love mixing prints and I thought these 2 pieces really worked together! And I'll tell you why. The sheer top coupled with the light colored printed jean compliment each other so well. It's important when mixing prints to find at least 1 similar hue because this will help tie them together. But I had to inject a little bit of fun and whimsy - so I paired it with my new colorblock handbag. Also does anyone else feel slightly better with a tan? Maybe it's just me...
