Boots and Roots

Scarf: H&M
Dolman Sleeve Top: Lulu's
Jeggings: H&M
Combat Boots: Steve Madden
Acrylic Bangle: Old Navy
Brass Dream Catcher Earrings: World Market

Thankfully I'll be taking care of the whole not-so-cute root situation in, oh, 21 minutes.

I may have gone a little nuts shopping with my mom last weekend, but I'm ok way that because it resulted in the purchase of the fan-freaking-tastic combat boots. And the jeggings. And the scarf. And some other stuff...

It's been five months since I last posted anything? Actually, I can believe it; a lot has happened. Long story short, I fell out of love with blogging after the loss of a close friend. Then I found this pair of shoes that the two of us had been looking for for at least the last five summers and got re-inspired. You know, that perfect pair of wedges/espadrilles that go with everything and are comfortable to boot??? Found 'em.

Ruffles and Whatnot

Purse, Michael Kors. Houndstooth scarf and brown cardigan, Target. Sunglasses, Ray Ban. Denim jacket, Old Navy. Brown woven leather belt, thrifted. Gray and black ruffled dress, Miley Cyrus/Max Azria for Walmart. Black leggings, Styles. Black boots with buckles, Forever 21. Abstract gold ring, Kenneth Cole. Earrings, vintage.

Apparently riding a bike while wearing a short dress and heels is not nearly as chic as all those Parisian women make it look. Good thing I decided to wear solid black leggings beneath said dress or the whole look would have been downright obscene.

Well, I'm off to the Bay Area for the week. I'm hoping to get in a little shopping but I'm pretty sure my mom has other plans for me.

Nude Up

Jacket, Elie Tahari. Red striped blouse, Faded Glory. White tank, Styles. Dark denim skinny jeans, Hudson Jeans. Nude pumps, Mossimo. Feather earrings, Forever 21.

So, I'm kind of obsessed with these nude pumps that I found at Target the other day. Obsessed as in Jer suggested that I sleep in them since I love them so much and I seriously considered doing so. Seriously. I thought the spiked heel might puncture my fine linens and I couldn't have that, so it was a no-go. For now.

And how perfect is this jacket? I've had it since I was in high school, back when I could spend hundreds of dollars on a single piece and not feel pangs of guilt with every step I took out of the store's door. Ahh, the good 'ol days.

Patio Post

Light wash denim jacket, Old Navy. Black cardigan, thrifted. Winter white slouchy top, Forever 21. Gold chain earrings, Kenneth Cole. Four pocket slouchy purse and gold charms and agate necklace, Styles. Black wrap skirt, Pink Rose. Black tights, DKNY. Brass button booties, Seychelles.

Yea!!! The sun finally decided to come out today! I couldn't ask for a better end to the work week, not to mention it happens to be a certain someone's anniversary...ahem, Jer, in case you forgot. Just kidding guys, he would never forget...

I don't know how I keep forgetting about these little booties I'm wearing today, but every time I put them on I remember how freaking comfortable they are for being 4 inch heels!

So the other day one of my favorite blogging buddies over at kookulai commented that I usually dress a bit more on the masculine side of the pendulum and it really got me thinking. Why do I always wear pants and blazers when I have a closet full of dresses and skirts that I never wear? Well, I'm hoping this fluffy skirt and tights combo swings me back towards the feminine side.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I know I will...

No Less Wisdom. I'm Hoping...

Winter white knit cardigan, Kimchi & Blue. Leather woven belt and black tunic, thrifted. Gray skinny jeans, Citizens of Humanity. Black leather ankle boots, Aldo. Beaded earrings, Forever 21. Smoky topaz ring and brass necklace, gifts from Mom.

Back from getting those pesky wisdom teeth taken out. Just barely though. Day one- making incoherent small talk with the after-care nurses. Day three- I didn't think I was going to make it. Day six- no amount of pain could keep me from getting a manicure, courtesy of my lovely boyfriend. And I'm BACK!

About that manicure; I brought my own polish, Rimmel in Steel Grey. It looks more like a mushroom color to me and I'm loving it. I was actually really surprised that I found such a cool color at the drugstore. It usually takes years-literally-to get good colors up here in no man's land.

Oh, and some of the photos were taken pre-mani, in case anyone was wondering why I only have nail polish on in some of the pics.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous day!!! See ya!

Blue Tuesday

Blue silk blouse and rings, Forever 21. Black leather skirt, vintage. Black tights, Nordstrom. Open toe ankle boots, BCBG. Art deco silver pendant, feather cuff, and interlocking circle bracelet, gifts from Mom. Locket necklace, Lulu's.

I'm having serious trouble with my camera remote again... I've been using the self timer function on my camera which makes for a long and unproductive photo session. That look on my face is genuine irritation, not faux boredom.

Enough of the griping though...

Let's talk about the color of this shirt. Amazing, right? And the fact that it's 100% silk? Double amazing. And the fact that I got it on sale for $16? That's the holy trinity of an amazing blouse my friends.

On a different note, I'll be getting my wisdom teeth taken out tomorrow so it looks like I'll be taking another mini hiatus from blogging, but I'll be back. Oh, I'll be back alright...

Tie-Dye For

Black studded cropped jacket, tie-dye skinny jeans, and chain accessories, Forever 21. Gray tank, Lulu's. Black leather ankle boots, Aldo. Silver earrings and smoky topaz ring, gifts from Mom. Silver and gold studded clutch and black cardigan, vintage/thrifted.

I cannot catch a break. Between forced slave labor and the rain I seriously cannot find a time or place to catch up with my blogging! Fortunately I was able to pop outside between downpours to snap a couple photos, and now that I've replaced the batteries in my camera remote there are no more excuses for me not to get back on track.

So, both my dad and Jer insist these pants look like camouflage pants despite my constantly telling them they are tie-dyed. The only camouflaging I could be doing in these pants would be if I were hiding from a color blind hippie at a reggae festival. I'm not the crazy one, right?

Back In Black

Cracked liquid leggings, velvet pumps, blazer, scarf, and sunglasses, Forever 21 (how did that happen?) Black top, vintage. Glass earrings, Lulu's.

Sometimes when the weather is all cold and gray, I simply can't help but wear all black and gray. Why do I have the feeling that if I had only worn bright yellow hot pants the sun would have shown its face for a minute or two? Hmmm...maybe tomorrow. About the sun, not the hot pants. Well, maybe the hot pants.

I Wear My Sunglasses At Night

Gold top, silk clutch, and tights, vintage. Black velvet heels, sunglasses and ring, Forever 21. Black skirt w/ back zipper, Pink Rose.

Happy New Years everyone!!! We'll just call this my New Years Eve outfit. Snappa battles and heated arguments over Radiohead were two of many reasons my outfit didn't come to fruition that night. Ahhh but it should have...
