Hi.

I'm Caitlin Israel, a twenty-something midwesterner with a penchant for neutrals, donuts, and makeup.
Thanks for reading!

Can I stay here, please?

So far, Utah has been a blast. Today will only be our third full day here, which means plenty of adventures are still to come. Yesterday was spent exploring Salt Lake City (which is actually my birthplace), so I got to see our old house and stompin’ grounds. The downtown area is beautiful, too. Can I stay here, please? Here’s the breakdown:

Shirt: Gap
Shorts: Goodwill
Sandals: Maurices (similar here)
Sunnies: Franco Sarto via Marshalls
Earrings: DIY
Watch: Garage sale
Bracelets: Dillard’s/Nadria (c/o Vogue)
Bag: Delia’s (very affordable version here)

Obviously stripes were a must-pack for me, and luckily I found this very nautical Gap shirt a few weeks ago (and somehow had the patience to save it until vacation). For a relatively hot day, a simple yet colorful short-and-T-shirt combo were absolutely necessary.
