I know, I know... I'm a little loooong overdue for an outfit post for you guys.  Honestly, I sold so many clothes before I moved that I feel like I've hardly had anything to wear.  While I've wanted nothing more than to just go on a crazy shopping spree for new pieces, I've been focusing on getting our apartment settled (read as: I don't want to go broke the first month I'm here!).  We're subletting a mostly furnished place, but there have been several things that we needed to pick up to make it suitable for us.  Other than finding a fabulous make-up organizer (any suggestions?!), I'm basically settled in. So for now, I'm working on remixing my closet the best I can.  While I've styled this shirt here and this blazer here, this skirt is a piece that you haven't seen before and it's actually been hanging out in my closet for several months.  It was a clearance find at Target maybe from as far back as December and I just took the tags off of it this weekend!  Thank goodness for old purchases that feel like new ones during times like these!

Speaking of shopping, did you pick up any of the Phillip Lim for Target pieces yesterday?!  I didn't get up early to head to a store or stalk the website for it to be released, but when I did finally wake up I decided to treat myself just a smidge.  The black medium satchel hadn't sold out online and, well, I really did need a new bag (No, really!  I did!) so I ordered that one for me and also the men's backpack in black for Tyler.  He's really been into the backpack trend and thought it would be the perfect accessory for traveling to and from work.  We were pretty pumped that we didn't have to get out of bed and we got free shipping! Phillip Lim ftw!


Keep up with Opal & Violet!
