Hey all! I’m back from my week in New Jersey and home in Spokane. The few days I was there flew by! Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore right before I left for my trip – an off the shoulder bodysuit with my favorite shorts. It was perfect for running errands around town.
For some reason I’ve been really into hats lately and so I had to top off the look with my black fedora. I love it in the Fall, and thought it would be fun to bring it out for this transitional outfit. I finished off the look with my favorite strappy black sandals. It’s kind of like my top half was Fall and my bottom half was Summer. Whatever works, right?
Going home was a bit weird, but a good time. I’m glad I went. In the past 3 years I’ve actually only been home twice (last time was this past May). The best part was spending time my Dad, sister, and Aunt. It’s always difficult to be so far away from them, and such a treat to visit. The hard part was trying to pick out the items from my childhood I wanted to keep. To quickly recap: my mom passed away 3 years ago and my Dad is trying to clean out the house to eventually sell.
My parents saved basically everything from my life (including all of my school papers and a box of hair from my first haircut) and just put everything up in the attic instead of throwing it out. It’s about 2,000 sq ft or more of stuff. I ended up bringing home a few of my childhood dolls, a carry on full of my mom’s sewing fabric (exactly 50 lbs), and shipped home 120 lbs of books (there’s about 5,000 books in the house – no exaggeration). It’s definitely a little bit of weight off my shoulders to know I was able to grab some of the things that were special to me.
Now that I’m back I have kind of a busy week trying to catch up on everything I missed. Hope you enjoy the rest of your week and don’t forget to join the linkup below!
