Winter gets really wet in the Northwest as it fades into spring and we see endless days of 42 degrees with a drizzle. In the midst of all the doom, gloom, puddles, and umbrellas, I get really tired of my sweaters. Tired of wearing grey and black. Tired of tights. And naturally once summer is in full swing, I am begging to get them back on and snuggle up in something that covers my white arms and keeps me toasty. A brand new cashmere sweater, however, is nothing to complain about, no matter the season. And I haven't been taking this one off in all its fuchsia glory. It's from REPEAT, and it's as warm and as soft as can be.
On that wintry and sweatery note, I did go shopping this weekend with my friends who were in town and was finally able to add a few spring pieces to my wardrobe. A drapey blouse in pink and grey stripes, a pale blue and white striped button down that makes me think of the beach and white shorts, and a very lightweight long-sleeve that also has me thinking of a beachy top for evenings near the shore.
Why the beach on the brain? We're having our wedding in Hawaii! It's where I am from, makes our event a destination wedding (perfect for a small group), and allows us to have a pre-wedding-honeymoon/vacation rolled into one big trip and one expense. Without a lot of time for us to celebrate with med school being so demanding and devoid of breaks, we're taking the freebies where we can get them! And so, even though it's a year away, I am getting totally wrapped around the idea of getting to the beach and wearing some lovely white button downs and pretty shorts to wear before the big event.
