Stripe Wrap Top with Basket Bag

So this is a bit of a photo dump, but I really did edit it down. There was over 80 when we first finished editing them! Even when it comes to writing, I can’t kill my darlings. Self indulgence is something I can’t seem to part with.

But this week is bound to be a little busy. My best friend and my boyfriend both have birthdays, and I love any occasion that calls for celebration. Though both are the most difficult people in the world to get gifts for. They love giving but it’s like pulling teeth to get them to tell you what they want.

Jacob and I have just started learning french! We only have the Duolingo app on our phones, and are watching french films. I’m determined to at least have the most rudimentary understanding.

When I was in Paris, it was a struggle because I couldn’t even read signs. I felt so disoriented and it took me a few hours to adjust. I used to roll my eyes when people said Paris was their favorite city, it just seemed so cliche. Then I went there and fell in love. The city itself is art and it’s impossible not to be completely in awe over it.

It made me want to learn the language that way when I go back I can fully enjoy the city. And ask for directions.

This look was inspired by my enthusiasm for learning the language. Striped top, mules, and a darling woven basket purse. I listed all of the outfit details below!

I’m off to try and find a gift!

Bonne journée,

The Perfect Wrap Shirt for $30

Hey, long time no see! I didn’t get my post up last week. 🙁 The pictures just weren’t really what I wanted them to be and I don’t believe in putting out content that doesn’t inspire me.

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks and I didn’t plan my post  accordingly. So, this was really a lesson in time management that I’m taking to heart.

This post is more of a life update than anything else. I just moved on the 2nd into the cutest house. I still haven’t managed to unpack everything, I never realize how much junk I have until I have to unpack and find a home for everything.

But I have so many ideas for how I want my room to look, so I’ll have to make a room reveal post once everything comes together.

Even sitting here typing all I can think about is all of the tasks I still need to check off my list. I need to get better at knowing what to prioritize. My introduction to adulthood has never been as graceful as I imagined when I was younger, and I’m really being consistent with at least that.

I’ve been obsessed with all of the sunglasses I bought from ZeroUV. I ordered three and got two white ones that are only slightly different, because when I find something I like I tend to want multiples.

They give me serious inspiration and makes me feel like even the most casual of outfits are more fun.

My shirt is one of my new favorites, I love that I can wear it with so many things. And I can play around with how I tie it. Plus, a beautiful wrap shirt for under $30? Yes, please.

I paired it with  a simple denim skirt and these heels that I’m in LOVE with.

I’m going to link a few more shirts I love just as much, there are just sooo many good ones out there right now.

I’m going to sign off and start getting my stuff done.

See you next week!
