Happy Friday, everyone! Tomorrow begins a 3-day weekend for many of us, and I couldn't be happier. This afternoon I'm going camping at a state park up near Wisconsin, along Lake Michigan, with Jude, my fella and 8 of my closest friends. Unfortunately, I have to go to work before that, so today's outfit is more casual Friday, and less outdoorsy. Although camping in suburban Chicago (and let's face it, anything between here and Milwaukee is kind of considered suburban Chicago) is probably more like hanging out in someone's backyard grilling, having a few beers and making s'mores, than roughing it in actual wilderness. Still, every now and then, it's really nice to get away from the city to unwind, slow down and see actual stars at night.
But about the clothes - this is my first open cardigan. I bought it because I absolutely love the color, and it's lightweight knit, so it's super comfy. If you hadn't noticed, I own a ton of cardigans, but the lack of buttons did present a new challenge for me to style. Like a nerd, I googled how to wear them and came up with this belted ensemble. How else can I wear it?
What are your plans for this holiday weekend? And academics - how was your first full week back at school?
