Camel Shirt 1

Here we are, another week older, another week wiser, folks! The next 10 days will be especially interesting for me because my husband will be traveling to visit his family in Bosnia. As much as I love the guy, it’s going to be so nice to be a single gal for a little while (no offense, baby).

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t plan to be painting the town red, I’m talking about watching Divergent in my sweatpants, eating white beans and kale for dinner every night on the couch, sprawling out across the bed when I sleep, finally finishing the last season of Mad Men, and deep cleaning my apartment every other day. It’s going to be epic.

In reality, I’ll probably be working 24/7 whether that means for actual work, Lemon Stripes, or planning our big move (my Google docs are seriously getting out of hand!). Speaking of, this was the second to last weekend that we’ll have in New York. I realized that late last night and totally freaked out. I had such a great NYC weekend with rooftop birthday parties, dinner with my college gal-pals, and a long afternoon chat with Victoria and Hitha. It’s really starting to hit me that we’re leaving.

So here is my first post taken in the ‘burbs near my office. I work in Port Chester so I figured I’d start getting you guys accustomed to out-of-the-city blog posts! I wore this look to work a few weeks ago after my serious C. Wonder shopping spree. The camel shirt has become one of my favorite pieces and I can’t wait to rock it with my new favorite pair of jeans this fall.

    It’ll be good to have a few days to yourself to get organized and enjoy all of the NYC things you adore. I love this outfit on you – the orange is so vibrant.

  • Marissa

    Such a cute outfit! I love the bright green tote, which is something I would not have paired with this but I like it!

  • Kate {Taffeta and Tulips}

    Love the mix of prints and you’re bright Gigi tote! I know what you mean about the city. It’s hard to live there day in and day out after a while but there’s something about it that pulls you back in! The burbs are the perfect compromise. You get fresh air and peace but the city is just a train ride away!

    SUCH a great outfit. And weekend. I’m still in denial about you leaving the city, but I’ll be camping out at your CT apartment all the time.

    Also, your husband texted me a picture of his suitcase. Was so proud.

  • Melissa Tierney

    Love that bag <3

  • Erin Haslag

    Lusting after those gorgeous J. Crew jeans! Serious motivation to get my booty & body back post-baby ASAP in January!!

    And YAY for you guys on the decision to make the big move. Keeping you in my thoughts as you transition!

  • Christa // Regina

    I totally get you on having a little time off, you’ll miss him, but being totally lazy and girly has it’s moments as well! Love the outfit and congrats on the move! I’m from CT and love it, and my boyfriend has had family in Greenwich for generations!


  • Style Sprinter

    Lovely outfit! I love the green bag and adore that the flowers create a nice contrast with the bag.

  • Heidi D.

    Enjoy your alone time and your last days as a city girl! Loving your top, btw!

  • Liz McAvoy

    unusual color combo together, but it works together so well!!

    We’re sure you’ll miss the city life – but at least you’re entering life in the ‘burbs in style!
