No one likes going to apply for their passports. No one. Nor do they like getting up so early, especially when we are dangerously close to the end of spring break [terrified gasp from audience]. That didn't stop my dad from stomping into my room this morning at the ungodly hour of 9am.

Also, this is not the time to shy away from bright or patterned prints. This is when we can stop wearing boring, dark neutrals and start colour blocking.
