Sequins and Sea Breezes: Windy in Cincy

Windy in Cincy

9/13/2017


Wow. It feels like I've been away from this little blog space of mine for ages. To be completely honest, it's hard to even remember what day of the week it is after the past week so the fact I remembered to post today is a win in my book! I don't think I've ever spent as much time watching the news as I did this past week prepping for Hurricane Irma. We got incredibly lucky and not only did the hurricane decrease in intensity before reaching us, but my little bubble of Florida remained relatively unscathed. 
Don't get me wrong, Hurricane Irma still hit Florida with a huge force and I'm still waiting to find out how one of my favorite places in the world, Key West, fared but I am well aware it could have been much, much worse for us. But after 51 tornado warnings, 9 inches of rain in less than a 24 hour period, 900k people without power, 80+ mph winds, etc Orlando is still standing strong. Sometimes it amazes me just how resilient my little city is. 
Ok, enough serious talk, let's talk about this outfit. My favorite tank, my favorite jacket and my favorite sneakers all in one comfy, cute outfit? Yes please! I finally splurged on this jacket last year and I've gotten SO much use out of it since then, I don't regret the purchase for a second. It's lightweight enough to work on a warm fall day or a cool spring day but also waterproof and perfect for layering making it a great jacket for cooler/rainy weather. Unfortunately the super cool sticker on it doesn't come with the jacket... it's actually a leftover sticker from being VIP to go behind the scenes to meet the penguins with my godfather while I was in Cincy. I honestly totally forgot it was on there when I took these pictures and had to laugh when I saw it come up in the pictures! 
I hope everyone has a fabulous week and hopefully my friends without power still (looking at you Kate!) get power back soon!
