spring stripes

Is it just me or did last week drag on like nobody's business? Filled with errands or not, the weekend was a welcome relief. We're still a ways off from being finished, but the new apartment is feeling much less like a sea of boxes and more like something actually lives there. It is important to note that I am sitting on the living room rug to write this because we finally put it down, for good! 

After a week off from blogging, it would appear that I have definitely forgotten how to pose for outfit photos, but that's always been an awkward thing. Sunday, yesterday, we did some experimenting with shooting indoors against our very blog friendly white brick wall before heading out to brunch and finishing up some miscellaneous errands. This is an outfit I expect to be on repeat until it gets too hot to comfortably wear pants. I'm always a fan of stripes and so I doubled up. I had these espadrilles on my wishlist last summer but they sold out before I could get my hands on them. I was not missing the boat this year and so I have been patiently waiting to wear them for about a month now. 

Also, wanted to share this video as it pretty much sums up my thoughts on my previous upstairs neighbors. Elephant bowling, "whacky Wednesday", and the laughing man are things I will not miss. Don't get me started on the occasional indoor rain.

On that note, Happy Monday and thank you for reading.
