Ahh laundry basket, we meet again old foe. I remember two weeks back when we had this same altercation- the one where you said you couldn't hold my clothes any longer and tossed them on the ground with frustration? I asked you so sweetly if you could possibly do me that one favor and just hold it in for a while longer- just a little longer!- and all you did was squint your eyes and watch my face as the socks at the top of the heap tumbled down to the carpet. That's when my fists clenched and I accepted your challenge. I took you to the cleaners.
Or more specifically, to the washing machines. Ugh I don't know what it is with me but I would rather just buy new underwear than do the laundry. Judge all you want, but 'tis true.
But luckily, Cult of 8 sent be this adorable mint jacket so I could at least clothe myself while this gang war between me and the laundry continues. I love the slightly puffed shoulders and the electric colors- it makes this little piece a real show stopper! Cult of 8 is a cute shop based out of Oakland, and has a bunch of candy-colored dresses draped over their hangers. And the best part? They're super affordable, ranging as low as $15 to $30!
