Ahh, quickest post ever! This week has possibly been busier than last week! What is it about May that makes everyone's schedule totally crazy? I'm still adjusting to my new schedule, and we're also taking care of my friend's cat, who is living (miserably) in our bathroom right now. Tension is high in our apartment, to say the least!

Anyway, I love this outfit, navy and white stripes are my weakness, especially in the spring and summer. they're so classic. I bought this top this past weekend in New Hampshire, I just couldn't resist the J.Crew Outlet sale rack! I love it paired with a navy skirt and oxford shoes. I kept my jewelry simple, adding my crazy eyed seagull pin for humor and this pretty bracelet from Kellyssima (not humorous, but very pretty).

Well, I'm literally running out the door to get to the cafe! Thank you everyone for the kind things you said in Friday's post, I'm really enjoying my new job! Have you entered the Lulu's giveaway yet?

I love your outfit!! I had that trench coat in navy & tan, and got rid of the tan last year.. now I'm really regretting it. It looks amazing with the nautical look!

This is such a classic but beautiful outfit! I almost got a similar shirt like this by LL Bean the other day while thrifting but it fit so wrong I had to leave it behind. And now I see how pretty you look in your stripes!

stripes and a cool skirt are awesome on their own, but the shoes and seagull are game changers. you're a champion (;

Love your style :) Also just wanted to introduce myself as I'm your newest follower! I love your hair, I love long hair too so I know what it's like to have waited for so long to get it to that length. It looks amazing on you :) Glad to be your newest reader.
