OOTD: Windy Day in Boston

Pants: Gap, Sz. 0 (buy here)
Blazer: Macy's, sz. P/P (old)
Sweater: Vineyard Vines, Seawater Cardigan, sz. XS
T-Shirt: J.Crew, Perfect Tee V-Neck, sz. XS
Bag: Dooney and Bourke


My best friend and I went up to the Boston area  to scope out the neighborhoods (we're moving up there in September!). She managed to capture a decent OOTD photo for me, despite my usual camera troubles. I don't know about you all, but I am LOVING the bright color pants trend. Colored pants have been around for ages, but unfortunately, those trusty brands that carry festive brights tend to be petite unfriendly. Gap's skimmer pants (seen above) fit my short stature perfectly. Next color I wish to snag? Coral.

Tumblr

Hello all, and happy spring! I am sitting here in a bright pair of green pants from Gap (Kelly blogged about the same pair in red over at alterationsneeded.com) by a sunny window. Unfortunately, my lack of a suitable camera makes it impossible for me to take decent outfit pictures for this blog anymore, so I'm rarely motivated to blog (what good is telling you about my awesome green pants if you can't see them?). However, lately I have been LOVING tumblr! I know I'm a bit late on the tumblr bandwagon, but I've become addicted these past few weeks.

My tumblr reflects my love for classic style, preppy flair, and New England tastes.
Check it out if you like!

New England style icon Sarah Vickers, in her pair of green pants. I love her style!

P.S. I got accepted to Boston College for grad school! So excited!

About that hiatus....

Hello, blogosphere! It's been a while. There is a wealth of both silly and legitimate excuses I could give for not posting on here, the main ones being:

1.) I've been applying to grad school (results in a month! Boston College, fingers crossed!)
2.) I've been spending quality time with family and friends (not that blogging detracts from that...)
and, as you know from my last post,
3.) My camera hates me.

I still enjoy reading all your blogs very much! I'm afraid my life is about to get crazy, as I begin student teaching in a week, bringing mixed feelings of anxiety and excitement.
I definitely don't want to disappear from here completely, so depending on which way my mood swings me you may be seeing many more posts, or very few. Either way, know that I'm still loving your blogs, and I'm sure there will be something I'm dying to share with you at some point in the near future!

Your faithful reader (and flaky blogger),
