Love Its!

This week I’ve been home for spring break. It’s been a relaxing week filled with catching up with old friends, hikes, museum dates with my mom and quality time with my family. Coming home can be such a gift. It grounds you and re-energizes you for the next task ahead. For me that’s a full Spring Quarter with classes, an editing internship, a campus job and a heavy involvement in student government. Thanks to my refreshing week at home, and the pearls of wisdom my parents impart each time I see them, I’m ready to charge ahead! Hope your first weeks of spring have gone well!

The Winter’s End

With the end of winter approaching, I have been trying to wear my favorite pieces from the season as often as possible. I loved this skirt’s plaid pattern. I also love the pleating it has and the flared bottom. It is definitely a piece that I will miss once spring comes, until then I’ll be wearing it as often as possible!

Neiman Marcus for Target

IMG_3881I was very excited when I saw the promotional video for this line. To be honest, I was not that impressed with the collection in the store. Most of the designers I was most looking forward to seeing (DVF, Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch) did few or no clothing items for women. Also, like most Target designer collaborations, the quality really did not measure up to the price. I did find a few pieces that I liked, which I feel makes a fun nighttime ensemble.
