Outfit Details-

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you had a great Labor Day! 

About the outfit: I have been looking for a button down shirt like this for a few years now and randomly stumbled upon this gem the other week when I was shopping on Bay Street. I have been wearing it nonstop! I’m serious… If I am being 100% honest, I even wore it dirty the other day and just put extra deodorant and perfume on. Whoops! And, yes I would still do it again haha! I spent $12 in the store for it, but online it is $24 which is still a steal especially if you are going to be wearing it everyday like me. Haha!


A little update on what I’ve been up to: Yesterday for Labor Day, I did some studying, some eating, and learned some German!! Probably weren't expecting that one, but it's true! My boyfriend, Nils, has been teaching me how to speak Deutsche on the go whether it’s in the car, ordering food, or saying hello and good morning {Hallo! Guten Morgen!} . 

It has always been on my bucket list to learn another language and because I always hear Nils' talking in German, I thought what the hell, let’s give this a go. My sister, Sterling, is also taking German at UC Berkeley and last night we were attempting to have a few different conversations (with Google Translator open of course). I'm curious to see if learning German verbally will work instead of taking a academic course (which I still might want to do, but not this semester with full academic schedule). So far, I find myself retaining what I have learned (well and forgetting some too of course and having to re-learn it once, twice or even twenty times... I have the brain of a goldfish if you know what I mean), understanding a few more words that I didn't know the day before and being able to express simple things like... What is your name? Wie heißen Sie? or How are you? Wie geht es dir? It's a process, but so far I am really enjoying it!

How did you spend your Labor Day?

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT Tuesday!
