& the countdown begins

Here's a simple, seemingly breezy outfit I threw together in the early morning, before the weather hit mid-80s, which was about the temperature in town when these photos were snapped. Needless to say, I was melting in this unforgiving sweater!

I have two weeks left in Hawaii before my big move to New York City. Many preparations are still in order before I can step foot on that plane. Starting with packing of course, which I have yet to begin. I'll be staying in San Francisco for a week en route to New York City, so please feel free to recommend any and all notable places I must visit in both cities, as it'll be my first time in both the City by the Bay and the Big Apple!

self-made skirt + rings

Self-made skirt; Michael Kors sandals; Self-made & Material Girl rings

One afternoon while cleaning my closet, much to my delight, I found a bag of unused fabric. Another afternoon of cutting, sewing, and stitching yielded this floral skirt, a welcome addition to my summer wardrobe. The seashell bar and purple stone rings were designed by me and assembled with the help of a crafty friend. I also have my friend Jill of Oh My Manicure to thank for my super cute nails, the color of which I'm obsessed with! I must purchase a bottle of my own.
