It may sound a little odd, but one rule I’ve always lived by is either covering my arms or my legs.  If I’m wearing short shorts, I like to wear something with sleeves, or if I’m wearing something with that’s sleeveless or strapless, I typically always have my legs covered.  It just makes me feel more comfortable and this is one look that I constantly gravitate towards for Spring/Summer.  There’s nothing I love more than a cozy tee, so when I found this light gray one, I knew it would be the perfect top for road tripping.  Not to mention that I’m always a sucker if something feels soft and cozy.  I can literally NEVER turn it down!  

I’ve wanted a Goyard tote for a couple of years now, so I decided to invest in one as my birthday present to myself.  (Please tell me y’all do that, too!)  It’s such a staple piece and I’m so glad I finally got my hands on the perfect one!  A large tote is so perfect for traveling!  (I also have & love THIS one!)

I hope you’re all having a great week so far!  Mine has been super busy in preparation to go out of town this weekend and I only have about a million + five things to do!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

I was JUST remarking to myself how much our styles are similar, and you absolutely solidified it with this post. I am the same exact way, if I am wearing shorts I have to wear a long sleeve or 3/4 sleeve top. I don't know where it came from, but I have always been this way. I think a sweater with shorts is one of my favorite looks on myself and others, it is put together but so chill.

I absolutely love your blog, it is one of the only ones I still subscribe to, after I purged a lot of others lately who have jumped on the trend bandwagon to the point where they are covered in fringe/pom poms from head to toe! You stick to your style, and know how to innately add trendy things without going crazy with it, and that sets you apart from all the others, in my opinion!
