it's a beautiful morning.

Happy Monday, peeps! I'm particularly excited for this Monday because the countdown is on for my weekend getaway — I'm escaping to DR for a few days at the end of the week. I need this.

In other news...

Did you hear? I quit shopping. Well, sorta. I kicked off the #OperationSaveYourCoins challenge on August 1 in an effort to—well, as the name suggests—save my coins and to challenge myself to get the most out of my wardrobe. 

I want to start practicing what I preach on here and IRL—to work with what I've got to be the best-dressed version of myself.

about the look

I picked up this shirt on sale (obvi) at J.Crew recently (disclaimer: this was before I started the challenge). I immediately fell in love with the stripe and the colors, though it's probably the most color I'll wear at once.

To highlight the bright colors even more, I went with accessories in deeper, richer hues—my go-to Zara bag and these gorgeous not-quite-blue-but-not-purple-either sandals, which don't get enough wear—for a more elevated look.
