This post goes out to the lovely Blondie, Esquire, who got a kickass job (yay!) and is moving far, far away from me (boo).

I definitely need to work on my self-braiding skills though, unless I can somehow convince my coworker to meet me every morning and do my hair :). Here’s the rest of my outfit (sans sweater):

And the pigsty of a room is all my handiwork. Here’s a close-up of this gorgeous necklace from T+J Designs. I saw it on Red Soles and Red Wine’s instagram feed and immediately ordered one for myself!
