The Moment Life Resets

Top: c/o Kemi's Avon Store (shop: search "striped tee")  |  Pants: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl's  |  Wedges: Kohl's (shop)  |  Necklace: c/o Eclectic Ornaments (shop)  |  Tote: ebags.com (shop)

After essentially 2 weeks of traveling, a crazy work week, a few guest posts (thank you Lauren and Katie), and a day off, I'm back!  I think I basically missed the whole month of May, but at least I was in good company.  One way that I know I've ended a busy season is the moment when I finally look closely in the mirror and am horrified by the sight of my overgrown eyebrows.  It happens every time, and as I pluck those little things I feel the peace of my life resetting.  Silly, but true.  

Can we focus on this fun top for a moment?  I've fallen in love with stripes this year, but I was mostly into stripes the black, white, or navy kind.  You know, the safe, neutral kind.  But tangerine and magenta?  Yes, please!  I already have about 4 other outfits in mind for this thing!
