black and blue


I’ve been fighting a migraine this week that just won’t go away so I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. Minutes after we took these photos I was pretty much under blankets for most of yesterday and today I woke up looking like I was in some sort of fight. Whoever it was against, I’m pretty sure they won. 

Here’s to sweatpants, tylenol and tea for the next 8 hours. 


Top: old bloom // similar

Jeans: gap // similar

Heels: shoemint // these are cute

Tote: Madewell

Sunnies: c/o Coach

    I love this outfit and have developed a serious hair envy :( 😀 The color of the top is amazing and fits perfectly with the styling. Suits you also.

  2. Love the simplicity of this outfit with the punch of colour and fun with the shoes! Perfect seasonal transition outfit, for sure.

    Hope you feel better soon. Don't forget to add honey and lemon to the tea :)

    I know you have a migraine, so I really should be overly kind, but I can't. I'm a little mad at you. I'm 8 weeks postpartum and the past two outfit posts have gotten me excited about the tops and then I learn I cannot have them. And that makes me sad. And then I want chocolate. Which doesn't really help the whole postpartum belly pouch. All of that to say, I hope you feel better so that you can help me find these shirts at a reasonable price. Thanks and stuff ;).

    It may seem crazy,
    but I use Badger Balm Headache Soother before I turn to medicine. If you check it out, be sure to post about it!! 😀
