     Since coming home to Maine for the summer I've been able to be reunited with many of my favorite things: one of which is my favorite blog photographer, my sweet friend (and talented photographer friend) Shara! Shara came over to my house for lunch over the weekend, and she was able to shoot a couple of my outfits during our time together. As always, I am beyond impressed with her pictures!! If any of you from New England are ever in need of of a photographer for any portrait needs (or for weddings she travels outside of New England!), talk to her! :-) 

     This outfit also features some pieces from my closet that I was recently reunited with- a couple things that didn't make it to school with me. One thing is my beloved Chanel purse. It was my grandma's and then she gave it to my mom, who passed it on to me last year. There is no way that I'd let a bag this nice get anywhere near a dorm room, so this stays put when I'm at school! And this pair of riding boots got accidently left behind in January when I headed back to school for the Spring semester, and it would have cost a lot for my mom to ship them when I already had several other pairs of boots at school, so they stayed behind as well. It's still been fairly chilly here in Maine so I'll be getting some use out of them this month!

     And how cute is this fun sequin top from Oakleigh Rose Boutique? Oakleigh Rose always has such adorable clothing pieces in their shop, and they also provide the best customer service!! I loved pairing it with my monogram necklace and my favorite pair of jeggings for a simple yet chic weekend look. And let's not forget about this new Essie nail polish- my favorite blue for Spring!! I'm obsessed! 

     Stay tuned for more of Shara's OOTD pictures coming to the blog early next week!
