Getting It Together + OOTD

Hey everyone! I've only been here two weeks, but I've already learned how much responsibility is required to maintain a blog. Write posts, reply to comments, reach out to fellow bloggers, make your site all pretty, the whole nine yards. But I have loved it and I plan on staying for the long run. When I started I was planning on starting with a Monday/Friday post schedule, until I realized how difficult that is. Mondays are so blah, it's hard to get inspiration, not to mention that Monday is my busiest day of the week. So I plan to continue on Fridays but make one post early in the week, somewhere Monday-Wednesday. And we'll see what the future brings.
Now a little OOTD for y'all. Facing a bit of a Wednesday lull today but I decided to brighten it up with a subtle pop of mint. I'm wearing a grey Gap sweater with my favorite AE jeans and brown riding boots.

 On top I'm wearing my (mom's) mint J.Crew statement necklace. Mint is my favorite color of the moment and subtle touches like this complete an outfit.

Guys I promise I own more than one watch. But I am of course wearing my gold Fossil watch with a few gold bangles.

I'm loving the half-up/half-down look right now so I paired it with one of my all-time favorite classics: tortoise. This tortoise barrette from J.Crew just pulled the look together.

This look required almost no effort and was easy to put together on a busy morning. With simple makeup and no-fuss hair I got out the door just in time to catch my bus. What tricks do you use to get out the door in time? Have a great day lovelies!
