Do you ever just have
one of those days when the universe seems to laugh at your expense? I was
having an off day last week.  In
the hopes of remedying the situation with a little retail therapy, I hopped in
a blissfully air-conditioned cab and headed to my personal oasis- J.Crew.  It may sound a teensy bit shallow, but
the stripes, sequins and girly/nerdy charm always make me feel better. Of
course my mood lightened even more when I discovered the pineapple print skirt on sale. How could anyone’s day not dramatically
improve with the pairing of such a fun summer print with cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery?
