Life lately.

Hello blog, I'm so sorry I haven't written in a bit. I feel as though I wrote so much through May that now I'm a little stumped as to what to blog about now. Perhaps I should look for another challenge to do...

Life lately has been busy but good. School is definitely giving me a run for money, but I do enjoy it. It feels great to be learning and doing something else in my schedule, although I'm already stressing about our final project and paper due in 8 weeks. Eep.

After coming off May's shopping ban I have to be careful to not go off the deep end spending in June. I'm trying to reassess my shoe situation (since I seem to only wear a handful of the same pairs) and I'm pretty much in love with this H&M skirt I picked up last weekend and want to live in it. And not gonna lie, I bought both items in the photo below:
Tippi linen sweater in whale and Liberty of London floral popover from J Crew. Whales on a blue sweater? Heck yes!

4th of July weekend might be what is keeping me sane as of late... my husband, parents, and I are off to Vegas and then on to Zion and Bryce National Parks in Utah. I'm really excited for a few reasons: 1) Vegas. 2) I haven't travelled (for fun) with my parents in at least 8 years. 3) this is the first sort of adventure vacation DH and I have had. I know it's going to be hot as all heck but I'm going to enjoy the scenery and prepare myself for lugging my big camera all over the place.

And so this isn't totally boring, some photos as of late...

City Hall on a walk before dinner.
Charles Phillip Shanghai flats I may have bought
It's always a treat to go back to the City Club

Oh, and to all those out there at BW/M.... ;)
Happy almost weekend!

  1. I love that whale Tippi! The Tippi sweater is my fave! I did a May shopping ban as well. I haven't really shopped in June either! I need to really assess what I need and want. Right now, I am not prepared, so I definitely would make some silly purchases, I'm sure :) Thanks for linking up with us this week!
