the new stripes

I'm making up for the lack of posts the past few weeks cos I feel like I've been slacking more than I'm allowed to so here I am sharing with you darlings, my outfit of the day.



Today's agenda was to hang out with Penguin in the afternoon, and the head to my mom's boutique to do inventory. Before I left home, I was browsing through my usual blogger inspirations and was inspired to don an outfit with a vintage feel. Luckily, this top was sitting on top of my pile of clothes as it was a new purchase so I figured it was about time to use it. 






Surprisingly, the weather was fine today. It wasn't too hot and there wasn't a lack of wind. If only it would stay like that for the rest of the summer then maybe I would be able to do more "look of the day" posts. Not keeping my hopes high though. I did have a very relaxed time today, despite having to work later than usual at my mom's. Promise me, not to get used to it. Relaxing is cool specially with Penguin, but laziness comes after, taking advantage of those moments, and that I can't allow. I know the summer holidays is the time we are officially allowed to be lazy but, I can't for two reasons: I have to earn some money this summer and I have to shed a few pounds for the swimming season. So, I guess I will just enjoy every relaxing moment that I have right now before the real work begins. Speaking of, how about you darlings, do you already have plans for the summer?

 Cheers, 
 Carla Violet
