I take the bus into Manhattan every day for school and on the way home the bus stops on the street in front of my gym, I get off the bus, D meets me there with my gym bag, and we go work out. Since I usually wake up before D in the morning, there is no opportunity to take pictures before school, so these pictures (and all of the others with the same background) are taken in the lobby of the hotel connected to our gym:)
I admired this sweater when it first came out at J.CREW in the late fall/early winter, but I wasn't willing to pay full price. However, when I went back a couple months later to browse the sale rack, there it was - just waiting for me to purchase! I wanted to get it in other colors (yes, that's how I shop...when I find something that I love, I buy it in multiple colors)...but alas, this was the only one left in my size. I love the criss-cross detail and I knew I wanted to layer something with an interesting pattern or texture, so I decided on this ruffle "tuxedo" top. I paired it with my denim pencil skirt, added a long gold chain necklace, and finished it with my black fringe moccasins.
