I've talked about my recent change as a vegetarian (or pescetarian). My mom had planned on making her classic Easter ham for her, my dad, and my sister. Thankfully, she hadn't bought the ham yet, and she took me with her to the grocery store where she purchased a salmon. I loved the end result of our Easter dinner so much that I'm going to share it will all of you.
Being a new vegetarian is difficult in some social settings where I have to pick around what food I can eat without making a big deal out of things and calling attention to myself. I'm lucky that I have a family that goes out of their way to support my eating habits even when I show up unannounced. I've made this dietary change for myself, and by supporting me, my family is experiencing change themselves, even in the smallest of ways (like a meal).

So in a rushed day, I might end up looking like this:
When I went home for Spring Break, with no classes and extra time to plan my outfits, I found myself throwing a few skirts into my suitcase. That week I wore several blouse and skirt combos and I felt happier. When I like the way I look, I feel more positive throughout the day.
After Spring Break, I started putting together outfits like this:
Outfits like this are still casual, but adding a skirt with a piece of jewelry can change it up and make all the difference. I've been loving the pairing of simpler shirts with printed or textured skirts. I usually tuck in the front of my shirts and throw on a cardigan because layering is the best. And since it's spring now, skirts are the perfect piece to bust out of the closet.
