Bummer of a weekend

Unfortunately, my weekend was not the most fun one I’ve ever had. I spent the majority of it working on homework and getting huge chunks of projects finished. Is it just me, or do professors seem to conspire to assign as much work as possible before a break? Here’s the breakdown:

Blazer: Isaac Mizrahi for Target via Goodwill
Striped Shirt: Saint James via Saver’s
Skirt: TJ Maxx
Heels: Stuart Weitzman via Goodwill
Bag: Coach via Garage sale
Watch: Garage sale
Bracelets: Elder Beerman/Garage sale/My grandma’s
Hat: Forever 21

This has to be one of my favorite outfits of the spring season so far. I love the nautical style, so pairing a navy blazer with white piping and a red-striped Saint James shirt only made perfect sense. My favorite parts, by far, though, are the unexpectedness of the hat and the other small details that make the outfit interesting.
