This cactus shirt is the closest I got to a desert over spring break last week. All the rain in Chicago put a real damper on my time off, but I tried to make the most of it. I’m hoping we get to see the sun again this week though! I caught up with friends, slept in and drank a lot of coffee, so overall, it was a good break from work. Now that I’m back this week, I’m looking forward to summer vacation in less than two months! Then I’ll definitely have more time to go on that desert vacation and perhaps elsewhere too. I’m definitely going to bring this cactus shirt with me no matter where I go because it’s so cute. Asides from being a really cute shirt, it was only $11! You can’t even get lunch for that price these days. I read the reviews and it said to order two sizes up for shoulder fit and this was spot on.
*Thank you Amanda and Alex at Spoke and Weal for my fresh new haircut and color. I love it 🙂

I’m in LOVE with ROXY! I don’t think I’ve ever loved a “thing” as much as I do my new favorite crossbody handbag. I just think she’s the most adorable handbag in the world. If I can’t have fun with fashion, then I don’t want to be a style blogger!! Honestly, she was a bit of a splurge, but I just couldn’t help myself (use code SPICEITUP for an additional 25% off). Some people have pets, I have Roxy 🙂
Asides, proclaiming my love for Roxy, I love being on spring break. I know it’s Thursday and it’s my first post of the week, but I’ve been “relaxing” or at least trying to. Although, I would have preferred to be on vacation, I’ve been laying low at home. Most days I’ve been catching up on more reading and I saw season one of Stranger Things – so creepy. I know I’m behind on popular culture, but that’s what break is all about, right?!
Back to spring fashion! I’ve also done a lot of spring cleaning and listed a bunch of items in my closet. A good closet clean is great because I’m trying to wear my clothes as much as possible without buying new items. While doing so, I found my pins and spruced up my denim jacket. How cute is this cassette pin my sister got me from Paris last year! I’m obsessed. And this blue nail polish is from Paris too. The lizard is from Greece and the flower pin is from an old Nanette Lepore jacket that I’ve had for years. I don’t think Roxy minds sharing this outfit post with those friends. Now, if only spring break would last forever…
