Since I’m going to be attending grad school in the fall and will be on a tight budget, I am making a very serious effort to be more mindful about my purchases. I recently bought this black jersey maxi dress because it is a piece that I can combine with many things I already own. I also love that it is a dress that I can wear all year long; I know that I will be wearing this dress often during spring and summer, and I can also see myself wearing it with boots and a belted sweater in the fall and winter. However, what I love most about this dress is that it looks elegant but is extremely comfortable at the same time. I’m a firm believer that you should never have to sacrifice comfort over style.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I only really had Sunday off since I worked Saturday evening, but I was able to make the most of the free time that I did have. It was also my mom’s birthday this weekend, so I made time to celebrate it with her and shower her with tons of love and gifts; it’s the least I could do for the most caring and loving woman in my life. Now, I just need to get through the next three days of work and then I’m off to Portland on Wednesday. I’m so excited to further explore my future home!
