Look of the Day: Stripes and Pearls

 I keep thinking things are going to calm down now that the holidays are over… ha! I’ve been waiting for a lull in the activities so that I can work on my goal of getting ahead of my blog but since the lull doesn’t look to be coming my way anytime soon, I guess I just need to get my act together so that I can fit everything in. Anyone else having this problem…no…just me??

Anyway, I am in love with this striped top. It was one of my finds from last week’s sale day when I only had about 30 min to shop. I always love black and white stripes and I can rarely pass them by (I think it may be a problem). This one has a sort of faux wrap look going on which I like and is different from any others I have. It will go with a lot of stuff so I’m excited.

Also I love this necklace. The combination of chain, pearls, beads, and a flower is interesting and fun. I got it a few years ago for my birthday but I don’t wear it very often because one of the strands of pearls keeps coming apart. It’s an easy fix that I just keep putting off.  
Another quick question. I am heading out to Utah next week to see some of my family (yay!) and I am SUPER worried that I’m going to freeze to death. Any tips on what I should pack? Anything I must get for the trip? Tights are on my list because I don’t own any and I figure I’ll need them for church, but what else? I swear I used to know how to dress for the cold but I’m having major brain cramps about what I’ll need. Most of the stuff I own now is very lightweight since it’s so hot here in FL.
