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!
