OOTD: Stripes Again

I'm starting to feel so unoriginal! After hitting the snooze button a few too many times this morning and taking a shower that was just a bit too long, I had very little time to put together an outfit before going to my first day babysitting - and a striped tshirt and cardigan is just sooo easy for me!

vintage necklace
jcrew pants

I'm sorry for the obnoxious blurriness of my photos lately! I don't know what is up with my camera. For anyone with a semi-manual camera (the Sony HX1 to be specific), if you have any tips for me feel free to share. I hope to take one of the free classes that came with my camera when I get back home, but until then I am slightly baffled.

One of the benefits of college - free tshirts. Seriously! I have 4 already, and I get another one with my basketball tshirt. With that one I will be up to 5 - and I haven't even managed to get all the ones that were available! Nicole has 5 or 6, and she wasn't even here this weekend to get these 2. I know, two free tshirts in one weekend, it's intense :) I will be set for pajamas and lounging-in-the-room days for the rest of my life.

My vintage coach! I just love this little bag sooo much, and I've been carrying it this weekend for various events and getting compliments on it so I figured I would share it with you - I've worn it before in photos, but I don't think I've ever done a close-up... regardless, I just think it's so cute, it's like a mini-briefcase! Ok, done ranting about my bag :)

So, this morning was my first experience of my new job! If you don't already know I'm babysitting for a family that lives near GW - they have the cutest little girl, and it was quite fun! We read books and played dress-up, but most importantly - we carved a pumpkin! Well, I carved a pumpkin, she didn't want to get her hands dirty. Still, it was something I didn't think I would get to do in college. And I get paid, so it was a fun afternoon :) Oh, and funny story - as I was walking back on campus, I decided to quick swipe into the dining hall and get some lunch. I walk in to find that they are still serving breakfast. It's 1:30 in the afternoon! I've been up and working for over three hours! And people are still eating breakfast!?! Lucky ducks... welcome to college life.

I'm off to the library, trying to get as much work done for this week so that I can spend time with my family. Have a lovely evening, rest up, tomorrows Monday...


  1. I'm a sucker for vintage Coach bags!

    Also, if you are using the self timer, you can try to focus on something where you are going to stand (put a chair there maybe) and then move it out of the way to stand in place of while the timer is going off. That's what I do when I shoot myself.

  2. that bag is soo cute and you look adorable in your picture!

    much love.
