I haven't been able to update the blog as much as I had hoped for, but there's good reason. We've been getting our home prepared for sale, and that has sure been quite the time (and energy) consumer. But that's not the hardest part about selling the house. The hardest thing to deal with has been the process of saying goodbye to my childhood home. I decided to shoot this post in my own home as sort of a way to say goodbye. Even though it's practically empty (I have the urge to sit in couches that are no longer there), I wanted to shoot this at home. 

Now that the sappy part is over with, onto the clothing! This is one of my favorite pairings because of the stripes on the sweater crop top parallel the stripes on these joggers quite nicely. The joggers are insanely comfortable and the fabric is an incredibly light and breathable athletic-feeling material, making them easily my favorite pair of pants. 

I decided to throw in my new favorite (and a little wild) pair of shoes. These tie-up ballet flats literally look like ballet shoes (well, at least to my untrained, non-dancer eyes). There has been a huge trend of tie-up shoes lately, but I think these put a fun spin on the trend because they use wide ribbons instead of thinner strings of material. I feel like they simultaneously clash with and balance out this outfit. Gotta add some fun to an outfit, right?

I know all of these particular pieces are no longer available, but I've linked similar pieces for each above if you're curious!
