If Work Permits

IMG_4226 This lace tee is coming through for me again, making all of my summer dresses work appropriate. I first tried it out by layering and knotting the tee over a floral dress for a summer look, but I like it over this striped dress even more. (Which is pretty impressive because I really liked that first combo!) I then added my all-black essentials, grabbed my laptop and drawing tube, and was out the door!

I wanted to share a small preview of some of the things I have been doing during my work day. Assisting an architect with floorplans and planning out a subdivision are what's in store right now. I love that when I go to work I have some things I am consistently working on, but also new information and projects pop up every day!

FASHION_in my bag

i've always been inspired by the tumblr page things organized neatly. i love scrolling through the images and particularly like when the organized items are those inside a person's daily bag, such as this one or this one. i think that these photos really speak a lot about the person, and are becoming more prevalent in the design community. today i wanted to make my own, which features my backpack and what i have with me on a daily basis. considering that i'm a full-time architecture student, these things are with me even on the weekends. enjoy! things organized neatly 1

i opted to wear more of my utilitarian pieces today seeing that i need my outfit to transition from the cold morning when i have my 7am class, to the afternoon, and back to nighttime again. i'm loving that i finally got a chance to break in my Ecote for Urban Outfitters jacket, and am excited to see how I'll pair it with more colorful outfits in the future!
