a few of my favorite things

– a striped skirt
– late-night body slams on my head from Otis
– a hot pink bag
– warm weather
– last minute road trips home (which is happening today!)
– training for a 5k (trust me, i never thought i’d see the day either)
– cold medicine, for allowing me to actually get some sleep last night

skirt: madewell / top: similar / bag: kate spade (in black) / wedges: adrienne vittadini / necklace: similar or similar / bracelet: similar

    I usually don't like pink, but I love that bag! I have been looking at the black one and debating if I should splurge or not. I wish I were in the shape to run a 5k, let alone a 1k! Good luck!
