allergies and the like


[blazer: JCrew (similar) // top: Halogen // pants: Gap // kicks: vince camuto // baubles: jcrew, michael kors]

The unfortunate thing about North Carolina this time of year is the allergies.  When I first moved to NC after college I was mis.er.a.ble. And every Spring I would lose my voice and sniffle my way through March and April.  Around year 2, I wised up and started using a combo of a neti pot (totally gross but effective), allegra, and flonase.  Since then I've been able to manage and on days (like the day these pictures were taken) I fill in the space that my tried and true combo doesn't fix with a big 'ol pair of sunnies. And just like these sunnies, to fill in the spaces between winter and spring weather, a great brightly colored tweed blazer does the trick as well.
