Happy Fri-YAY! These gray Wintery photos do not accurately reflect the beautiful weather we've been having in Nashville lately. It really feels like Spring, and I am so excited. On the other hand, I had a moment of panic yesterday when I realized I might be done dressing for Winter this year- and I don't think I've had time to do my best work!

How perfect are these gray oxfords? I've been wanting a pair just like this for a while, and picked them up at Primark in Boston last year for something crazy like $15. They are the perfect dupes for some Cole Haans or, you know, Manolos. I love the "borrowed from the boys" / "schoolgirl" vibe they add to a mini-skirt & button-up. I have this skirt in pink too and I am SHOCKED it has never made it on the blog, because it's 1/2 of my favorite Summer outfit. Maybe this year! Last thing- still going strong in my #nailpolishchallenge where I'm trying to wear every color I own (this is resulting in multiple manicures per week.) I still maintain that the NYC $1 polish is a great cheap option. 

As an aside- I really like that second photo. It strikes me as just a good photo of what I actually look like. #vanity

Tomorrow morning bright & early (more like dark & early) I am jet-setting to meet Carina in Miami for a quick weekend trip (like we do.) It's the first, official adventure of 2017 and I am thrilled to see a brand new city, not to mention my sister whom I haven't seen since Thanksgiving, and oh yeah, not mad about hanging out in the 80 degree weather. You better believe I'll have Miami by Will Smith on repeat all day :) Last thing about weather- I was packing last night, and just rifling through all my Summer clothes again was making me giddy for what's to come. Life just seems easier when it's warm out, doesn't it? 

Talk to you soon with tales from South Beach, mos def. And in the meantime, follow along on Twitter @priyapappu and Instagram @queen_pri_ for updates on our adventure!
