Leaving on a Jet Plane

Let’s all say a prayer of gratitude for Wifi-enabled planes and strong coffee. I’m alive! Currently taking off from Baltimore, where I had a layover, to Detroit. It’s about negative ten degrees in Ann Arbor right now (and no, I’m not being dramatic. It’s low of negative thirteen without windchill today.) so. That should be fun.

Layering is definitely an essential when traveling, I feel like a broken record with this hat but I just love it. I’m also rocking the same basic color palette as yesterday, but a little more comfort and a little less glamorous. I’ve never been so obnoxious as to wear a skirt on a plane, but one of these days. Mark my words. This sweater from J. Crew is super comfy merino wool, and I pair it with basically every bottom in my wardrobe. Same goes for the black puffer vest. I bought it back in the fall and have worn it dozens of times since then. And I got it for an incredible thirty dollars! Hail to old navy. The boot sock/ boot combination may be my favorite part, my feet are so toasty but I think it polishes the look off very nicely!
I hope everyone traveling today is safe!
Much love,
Sarah

Outfit of the Day: Hat Trick

Today is my last day of break and I decided that in order to not spend it curled up in a ball crying, I would need to pull myself together and dress like a human being. I just went with staple pieces today that I always rely on when I want to throw together a cute outfit. I found this blouse at the store Dynamite and it’s actually the perfect year-round basic. My skirt is a J.Crew city mini, which is THE most essential skirt on the planet. I have it in fuchsia and black, and my sister has it in navy and royal blue. The most popular City Mini by far is the tartan plaid, which sold out EVERYWHERE this past month. Unfortunately, J.Crew did not release a line of wool city minis aside from the Tartan and Gold Sequin varieties this winter, otherwise I would have probably purchased every single solid color in my size. However, I’m hoping in the spring they will bring the linen ones back so I can pick up a couple for the warmer weather. I really love this monogram necklace, although I probably sound like a broken record as every “preppy” girl and her mother seems to have one of these right now, but who could blame them? They are classic and adorable. And of course, the hat. I posted about it in my “favorite things” and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to use it as a completer piece today. The obsession is real and I may have to be making a return to J.Crew (or J.Crew.com), to browse their other baseball caps.

I hope you all are having fabulous sundays (if any of you are out there :P)!

Much love,

Sarah.

Ps. Oh. The whole Starbucks-through-a-straw thing. You know.
