crazy folk

skirt: Lauren Conrad for Kohl's clearance
top: Target
cardigan: GAP clearance
cupcake necklace: [un]possible cuts
sandals: Lela Rose for Payless sale

I am one week into my summer vacation and already I am struggling with the great amount of free time I have. This happens every summer and I spend more time trying to convince myself to enjoy it than actually enjoying it. sigh. What's wrong with me? Who has to tell themselves to enjoy doing nothing???? Crazy folk. That's who.

Luckily, tomorrow my annual Peace Corps reunion unofficially begins. This our sixth summer to get together over a super long weekend and this year it is in my neck of the woods. Let the fun begin!

casual uniform

maxi skirt: Nordstrom Rack
sandals: Target
button-up: Old Navy sale

Today was a casual day. Sandals, a super soft button-up, with a maxi skirt is my go-to casual uniform. I didn't have any plans so I decided to get a jump start on setting up my classroom. I ran some errands and spent a few hours arranging the desks and hooking up the computers. It flew by with two former students helping me. It feels good to have a small bit of the set up out of the way. Today's baking plan is strawberry-lemonade cupcakes. My coworkers at the restaurant I work at part-time have been asking me why I never bring them cupcakes anymore. I plan to remedy that tomorrow night with THE perfect summer cupcake.

blogging and baking

skirt: Pins and Needles resale
top: Old Navy sale
heels: Steve Madden sale
Oakland necklace and Sugar Skull earrings: [un]possible cuts

The lazy days of summer are in full swing for me. I finished teaching summer school last Friday and have been doing serious relaxing this week. It's always a battle to jut enjoy time off and not fill it with tasks and activities. So many activities. This summer break I plan to blog more and bake more...both of which have been absent from my life lately.
