Do you ever feel like you have a closet full of hundreds of items and yet you only really wear the same 10 things on repeat? For me, this shirt is one of those 10 things. It’s perfect for work meetings (buttoned up and tucked in), jeans, and tied up and paired with a skirt like in this look. Plus it’s perfect for summer since it’s so lightweight. Just thought I’d share this simple little outfit incase you’re running out of ways to wear your favorite button-up.

Anyway as promised, a little life update! Today was my last day of graduate school where I presented my thesis to a panel of judges and it is such an incredible weight off my shoulders to have that over with. Even though I walked in graduation in the Spring, I had one last class to finish up now I am DONE! No more school for me, thank you very much 🙂 This weekend, I’m off to travel in Europe for a month and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m going with my best friend Emily to Spain, France and Croatia, then meeting up with my parents in Italy to cap it off. I don’t know how much I’ll be able to blog from there depending on my Internet situation, but I’ll be Instagramming galore so be sure to follow me here. After Europe I’ll be back in NYC for two weeks to attend fashion week and say goodbye to all my friends, and then I’m moving back to Honolulu to start a brand new chapter.

It’s definitely bittersweet to leave Manhattan because I love this city and even more than the city, the friends I’ve made. I’ll miss getting Insomnia Cookies delivered at midnight, strolling through Central Park just for fun, complaining about the bone-chilling winter days and living within walking distance of a Zara (ok let’s be real it’s probably good for my bank account that I won’t be this close to the store anymore). But I honestly can’t wait to be home with Holden, my Hawaii friends, and be in the place that I’ve always felt the most myself. ‘Til next time! XOXO
