Black and White May











Sweater (similar), belt (similar): H&M; Dress worn as skirt: c/o Elegantees; Shoes: Anne Klein

The weather turned chilly here all of a sudden and we're battling some gloomy days at work with rainshowers and windy afternoons. I was forced to bring a sweater out of my winter clothing stash with this look and was pretty displeased (if cozy). I know that I also just wore this dress in a recent post, but it is such an easy staple that I'm going to be wearing it a lot! Paired with a cropped sweater it provided a whole new look! 

Anyway, I'm running a bit short on posts because things have been crazy around here with the job application process, apartment hunting, an insane workload at my current job, and my brother comes into town tonight! I'm headed to the airport in about forty-five minutes to pick him up and haven't seen him in two and a half years! So thrilled to be reunited. I hope to have some update time, but it might be sparse during his visit (or just full of some stockpiled "On the menu" posts)!
