Stripes X3!

Yesterday was my last day at my old job and my new job starts Monday.  I feel such a sense of relief and excitement!  With this new job comes a lot of changes, but I am ready.  One of the bigger changes is that I will now be taking public transportation to work.  It is definitely going to take some getting used to.  Ben and I went on a a little journey today to figure out the best route for me to take.  I am terrible with directions and get lost very easily, so I wanted to do a trial run.  It went well and was actually pretty easy.  For those of you who commute via public transportation, do you have any tips for me?  I am looking forward to catching up on my reading and NOT dealing with rush hour traffic!  I am a little bit worried about the rainy season starting up soon.  I'm sure I will be shopping for gloves/hats/rain coats/etc. in the very near future. 

I have been wearing a lot of stripes recently.  It seems like stripes are everywhere again this season and that makes me happy:)  Here are 3 recent outfits that all feature stripes of some sort:  

This is what I wore today.  The skirt is from last year.  I am getting a lot of wear out of my new J. Crew Polka Dot Chambray top - love it!

I bought this J. Crew factory knit blaze a couple of weeks ago.  It is fabulous!  It is so cozy, but still looks put-together and can definitely be worn to the office.
