I haven’t had much time to write in the last two weeks–I have photos to share; I always do. But there hasn’t been much time for self-reflection as life calls me to other places. I had a quiet start to the year, but there are a bunch of social engagements lined up for the summer. It’s a good time to mingle and reconnect with friends and family–I am exhausted, but I welcome it. All too soon I am sure I will retreat into my shell, for self-preservation, but for now, the oyster is here to play.
The only new item I’ve invested in for the summer (so far) is this jersey trapeze dress which is actually a close dupe of this Brandy Melville Alena dress. Both are made from a good-draping, opaque jersey, but I’ll say that the Brandy Melville one is a bit thicker and heavier than the Forever21 version. At any rate–it is hopefully my one and only indulgent summer purchase; I don’t really want to accumulate any more light knits to take up space in the closet.
In the meantime, I hope you are all having a good summer (or winter/spring?) Where have you gone off to (or are planning to go?)
