spring break

//top, cardigan, oxfords: thrifted / skirt: refashion / tights: jcp / scarf: gift//

Well, finals are over and spring break has begun. It's only a week, and now it's nearly over, but it's been wonderful to slow down a bit, catch up on my favorite shows, read for fun while snuggled under a pile of blankets, put away my Christmas decorations (finally! It's only the middle of March, haha) during my cleaning spree, work on a new blog design, and of course, spend extra time with the boyfriend before heading back to classes on Monday. I could easily get used to life like this. :)

Anyway, on to the outfit. I've been loving simplicity and minimalism in my outfits of late, because they're easy and comfortable, and can still manage to look put together. This may not be my absolute favorite outfit of late, but it was certainly comfy, and I like the colors together. I've been feeling drawn to gray colors lately, possibly because of the absence of sun in Seattle, and this cardigan, one of my most recent thrifting finds, is a new favorite. It's cozy, goes with so many things, and I think it has a bit of a vintage vibe, which, of course, I love. 

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!
