Hellooooo, I know anyone who is even checking S + T at this point is shocked to see that I am alive and breathing typing. Like last time, I am deeply sorry for dropping off the earth with no warning again. But I kind of sort of had some good reasons.
The past three weeks have kind of been all over the place. I was out in D.C. for work for a bit and then went straight down to Florida for a few days. Unfortunately I had to leave the warm weather and trek back to Chicago where I stayed put for a few days before heading out to Raleigh for a wedding. (Does anyone else start singing Wagon Wheel obnoxiously when they hear Raleigh or is that just me?) I came back for a couple days and then made my way back to central Illinois for Easter. Next week I'm off to Houston and Philly for a little bit just to keep you all in the loop of my every move throughout the country. We shot a few outfits this past weekend so I hopefully won't be jumping ship for that long again!
Not a whole lot has happened besides unpacking and packing suitcases, other than the fact that I am saddened to tell you all that you will most likely hate me for being a walking contradiction. I, Lacey, have unfortunately starting picking up crop tops for summer. But I promise, promise, proooomise, they are not skankalicious. And I only plan on wearing them with non-skanky shorts or skinny jeans. No belly button displaying or anything, so bear with me? I won't even do any outfit posts with them if you don't me too after I just said what the heck to them in a "recent" post. I hate myself for it too, don't worry. But liiiike, there are seriously no other options in the stores so you have to cut me some slack.
Everyone is probably wanting to pull their hair out with me talking nonstop about the weather, but PRAISE THE LORD I can check my weather app 50 times a day and not see temps below 40 in the Chicago land. Most days are 50's and 60's which makes me want to jump in the nearest pool with one of the gazillion of swimsuits I have bought recently since apparently I have been so deprived this winter I need a new for every day of the summer. Side note: Black and white bottoms are really the best thing I have ever bought, hello only buying the tops to swimsuits and matching it to the bottoms. I'm sure all you warm weather people are whipping out your winter coats for those temps while I'm tossing out any remains of winter apparel and hope to never put it on again.
And a big no thanks to any of my friends who have seen me wear these sunglasses in real life. None cared to tell me they make my face look like the size of a boulder. Clearly having pictures taken of your closet and accessories helps you realize that 70% is unflattering. Don't do it kids, just don't subject yourself to it.
I will be back on Friday! I'm determined to get back on track and get my crap together over here. Thanks to the ones who emailed/commented wondering if I'm alive, you guys are the bomb.com.
