Spring Cleaning

Leather Jacket: Zara // Necklace: Lindsay Lewis // Top: Target // Jeans: H&M // Purse: Thrifted 

So I've been slacking way too hard and nearly 8 WEEKS have passed since my last post!  I have failed my number one New Year's resolution to post more frequently and damn, guys, I have failed sooo hard.  The time in between posts have passed in what seems like the blink of an eye, and it's absolutely crazy how fast time flies when you're stupidly busy.  OK anyways if you're wondering what I have been up to, here's a brief rundown on my whereabouts.

Places you can find me...

1) Buried under school work, specifically chemistry (my new favorite thing to complain about and wish death upon)

2) Flopping around in bed, most likely sobbing about the shit-load of snow we've been buried under.  I mean for Pete's sake, Mother Nature, PLEASE let this be the last of it because I am so over shoveling

3) Working at a new job, which is actually really really great!

and last of all..

4) SHOPPING!  Because hellll-lllooo tax return *mischievous smile*

After a gruelling Winter, you can bet I got the cold-weather-crazies and I threw out nearly my entire wardrobe in order to "start over", which just may be the best and worst idea I've ever had.
This brings me to exhibit A, which is my sweet new leather jacket!  Can we talk about this beautifully soft, (faux) leather, gracing my frumpy winter frame?  Those insanely dreamy details and that gorgeous structure...*flirtatious low whistle*  This is exactly what my sassy new wardrobe needed!  I've never had a leather jacket before, so I figured I would take baby steps with this more affordable version from Zara and let's just say that I am completely smitten.  This purchase came right in time for the warmer weather we are having this week as well.  Just look at that old, dirty snow melting under the Chicago sun light.  I feel refreshed already!

P.S I'm definitely planning photograph and log the survivors of my closet as well, so please stay tuned for my new wardrobe!  I promise it won't be another 8 weeks for that post ;)
