What I Actually Wore: 9.28 – 10.4

What I Actually Wore: 9.28 - 10.4

happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was so nice. I really didn’t do much which was truly just so wonderful after a hectic week. We didn’t make it home on Friday until 2am so I slept in on Saturday. I got some work done, did a bunch of things around the apartment (so much life admin!), got really into The Politician (so dark +funny!), got a manicure with a girlfriend, and was just really lazy which I definitely needed.

Last week was a busy one! I had my birthday party on Saturday (hence the crazy outfit below), and then on Tuesday it was off to San Francisco. It was definitely a fun and productive week and it feels good to be back at it with the podcast live shows. I’m now getting reallllly excited for DC + Philly next week! Without further ado, here’s everything I wore this week.

    You look great! How is it you ever seem to repeat outfits? I go out like, once or twice a week (not including going to work) and I repeat the same look week after week, haha! 🙂

      Haha, I definitely do! I think I just repeat more over time so no one notices 😉

    I need to check out the J crew leopard pants for travel. My goto pair is the Full-length easy pant from Jcrew. I can be comfortable but polished on travel days.

    Hi Grace! Just letting you know the link for the Madewell Sweater goes to J.Crew earrings. Such a cute look, though!
