camo stripes

coat: c/o gap // top: c/o: gap // pants: forever 21 (super old) // shoes: guess // bag: h&m (recent) 

There is no denying my love of stripes, and when I saw camo stripes I just had to do it for the good of mankind...right?
There is something so classic with pairing stripes and a camel coat together and the update of the camo gives the look a more laid back feel. It's weird to see me in a shorter camel coat since I usually go for longer coats but I felt like this coat was a breath of fresh air!

Speaking of falling in love, I spent the last week in Calgary on a condo hunt with the boyfriend and towards the end of the week we found a place! I can't believe the moment I've waited for 2 years is finally here! I'll be saying  goodbye to small town life and I'll be spending the next little bit on the job hunt and unpacking our life into a much smaller space. In a way, the smaller space will be refreshing since we can downsize our belongings and just keep what we truly need! (aka: my kitchenaid mixer and clothing of course! haha)

Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
