I am twenty-two! Yep, cue Taylor Swift. Last year I was shooting a wedding but this year I feel like I've grown so much. I graduated, travelled, moved out of my family home, got an apartment, got a full time job in my field, gained a lot of self confidence and self acceptance, struggled a lot, and changed my mind a million times. A lot happens in one year. But I finally feel like I really know where I'm going in life and I've answered a lot of questions I've had for myself regarding my future, who I am, and what I want to be doing. Honestly it's been a long year of "what am I doing?", "what do I want to be doing?", "what should I be doing?" and other really big decisions. But at 22, I feel like I really know the answers and I'm really confident with where I am.
I'm really excited to share this look with you guys! I've always loved stripes and this jumpsuit is so perfect for summer. The weather on the east coast has literally been all over the place so this jumpsuit is perfect for both warmer and cooler days. It's super light and airy (so glad it didn't stick to me) and I love the cut of the top!
I paired the jumpsuit with a thin open front cardigan. It's so perfect for layering and I love the light green colour.
The converse make this look perfect for a summer day, but you can definitely wear this out in the evening or for datenight!

I decided to treat myself a couple of weeks ago with my first Zara order. I'm really into blues, neutrals, and floral embroidery so a lot of the pieces I picked out have one of those elements. I also recently got a new camera. I joined the Fujifilm family! I got the new XT-20 and I'm really happy I made the switch. I was a little bit nervous just because I've always used Canon, but I wanted something I can document everything with, especially my everyday, and my Mark ii was just way too big and heavy to carry around.
I don't normally wear pieces like this but I really want to start investing my money on brands I truly love and Zara is one of those brands. I discovered Zara not too long ago and I can't wait to order some more pieces. The floral embroidery is really nice and adds such a chic touch to a basic shirt. The big sleeves are really fun and loose so it feels really light when I wear it.
