Nautical Notes

Happy Monday!

I hope you are all doing well, I have taken a short hiatus over the past few weeks, as I am sure you were all aware of. It doesn't look like it will get any easier to write within the next two weeks. I have a couple of things coming up!! 

First, It's my grandma's birthday today! Happy Birthday Grandma! So many years, so much wisdom!

Second, I have FINALS... my second to last set of these, finally. I will have one semester after this and super excited to be done with school... 

Third, It's my birthday next Monday! AND in perfect birthday girl fashion, I will be enjoying turning a quarter of a century! OMG, I am getting old guys!!

On to other things...
Black Blazer - H&M
Striped top - H&M
Denim jeans - Gap
Black Boots - Heartbreakers
Necklace - H&M
I know you haven't seen an outfit post in forever... Two weeks is a long time!! 

And I absolutely love this striped shirt I got from H&M, it was like $10! Which is definitely a steal! I have been on the search for very transformable items, that can double in the workplace, and are still appropriate. That's my challenge. The weather hasn't been working with us here, we have definitely been getting all of the showers April has to offer us. Which is good for our environment, so that's okay. 

I can't wait til my outfit posts can be summery again, with spring dresses, florals and bright prints... 

Until then, I will continue to keep dry the best way I know how...  wearing my rain-boots and jacket. :(

Enjoy your Monday!

The Lack Thereof...

Happy MONDAY! 

Thanks for all your lovely posts last week.. Although, I didn't get too many responses to ideas for cooking (I'm assuming most of you find yourself in my shoes from time to time), 
I did get a couple of tricks that I will be taking into consideration. I finally cooked dinner this weekend, and tonight as well. 
We've got to stop eating out!

Anywho.. the title of this post relates to the fact that I have been trying to find a decent new pair of sandals for spring and I seriously have had no luck finding something I like!

Please explain. 
Am I supposed to wear boots in the spring/summer time or what? A lot of the styles just look old to me... nothing new.. OR is it just me?? Please share sites/brands with me, I am serious!

Below is what I have been running into:

I'm just not sure about most of these styles... I guess the sandal market this season is all about the wedges!! 
.......I have been finding very fashionable wedges that I love.. :)

I'll just prepare myself to be ready to work the heels/wedges!!

What do you think?? 
Have you been having the same troubles as me?
