Outfit: Fringe top via JC Penney | Similar skirt | Franco Sarto wedges [similar here] | Kendra Scott necklace | American Eagle hat

As the days start to get cooler, I tend to go into neutral or gem tone mode. This fringe split sided top caught my eye when I was buying makeup at the Sephora in my JC Penney last week. The Samantha Ronson collection has always been a favorite of mine there because it’s the perfect marriage between trendy and grown-up chic.

This heather gray top is a tunic, so it can be worn in a variety of ways. I’ve worn mine with leggings and boots as well as here with a leather skirt and caged wedge sandals. I also plan to wear it with a scarf and leather jacket when I fly home for Thanksgiving! Not looking forward to how cold it is, but the family and friend time will be so worth it!

Things have been pretty overwhelming lately but I feel as if all the work is worth it. I feel very supported at this new school and oddly enough, I don’t mind the extra hours all that much. Sometimes, however, I do miss all of the long walks Henna and I used to take because now we don’t get to go out as often. I need to work on figuring out a more efficient schedule to incorporate more exercise and time with loved ones. You would think that these things get easier to prioritize as time goes on and experience in the field is gained, but the sad truth is that they never really do.

Here’s to starting our Tuesdays with a smile 🙂
