Yay! It's May!










Occasion:

Hi All! I am finally back from Chicago after Pesach and coordinating and throwing my future-sister-in-law a bridal shower (love you, A!! Soooo happy for you and L!! Mazal tov!!!). My flight today was majorly delayed and after sitting on the runway for several hours and getting home hours after I was supposed to, I am soooo happy to be home with D and Keppie. I really needed some puppy cuddling when I got home; nothing transforms my mood quicker than kisses from the Kepster:) She was sooo happy to see me and I couldn't stop hugging and petting her. I unpacked tonight and tried to tackle the dry cleaning pile...phew, there's a lot of laundry to do! I cooked a nice dinner for D and myself (beef and green bean stir fry...yum!) and then straightened up the house a bit. After almost a month of sleeping in strange beds, I am so excited to sleep in my own super comfy bed:)

I go back to school tomorrow. I am so excited since I missed the whole month of April because of our honeymoon and then Pesach break. We have 2 more weeks and then we are off for the summer. I don't have any concrete plans, but I am totally looking forward to it.

This skirt was given to me by my friend C along with a bag of other things that she didn't want. I really like the lines of the skirt. I feel that an A-line skirt is flattering on most women because it really helps hide wide(r) hips. The attached belt is super cute too. I paired it with a confetti collar white button down and a bright orange cardigan. I liked the bright pop of color on this bright sunny day:) I kept the accessories in the same color scheme and wore an orange geode necklace and an gold and orange cuff bracelet. I finished off the ensemble with my gem studded flats. I felt really confident and loved this outfit!

Outfit:

Shirt: J.CREW

Skirt: Gifted by C

Sweater: J.CREW

Necklace: Forever 21

Bracelet: Thrifted

Shoes: Banana Republic

This outfit is so cute! The orange is a perfect spring punch of color. You look very model-esque in the second photo too. I love that you're trying out new poses!
