Happy hump day everyone! 

So a random humpday story- I always get really nervous when I send emails over our office list serv fearing a glaring grammatical mistake or something else of the sort that gets sent to the entire office. Does anyone else get anxious about that? One time, I signed my email, Happy Wednesday and linked it to the hump day video. I was rather proud of myself for sending an amusing email to the office and minutes after I hit send, I heard people at their desks giggling which I assumed meant my email was a hit. Oh it was....because it was THURSDAY. 

Anywho, I wore this to brunch this weekend with one of my new roommates and our boyfriends. It was unusually warm in DC this weekend so I was excited I could toss on a blazer and not to have to lug around a coat. I think the blazer made the outfit a bit preppier than is my comfort but I'm hoping I could balance that out with distressed denim and my Frye boots. It's all about the balance, people!

Speaking of new roommates, I'm getting all settled into my new place and really am a huge fan of my roommates! I'm really excited to get to know them better. I consider myself pretty shy and take awhile to warm up so my new living situation sure is forcing me out of my comfort zone. But I'm sure that is a good thing :) It also helps the comfort zone to be so close to Target. Don't even ask how many times I've already been. #dangerously convenient
