“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”
-Coco Chanel

As long as I can remember jeans have been a second skin to me. Even in the sweltering hot Kansas City summers I can't help but want to wear jeans, like all the time. Denim just feels so great to me, but sometimes I feel that skinny jeans are too casual and confining. I've been looking into other pants to try and I came across these Brandy Melville Susannah Harlem Pants. Though I really wish I was taller they are immensely comfortable and give me a loose look and vibe that I yearned for. I am excited to see how I can transition them into the fall ^_^ My favourite Katherine ever, took these spectacular shots of me in a tree. I wish you guys could've been with us! I fought off ants and Spiderman scary spiders! The ones where I have only one shoe on are probably due to me invading a poor ant populations home. In other news, summer is going by way too quickly! I'm not emotionally ready for July to be over! I have been buying too much black furniture from IKEA for my apartment, and Candidly Nicole on VH1 has become my new favourite show (after Suits of course.)

{I made a GIF!}

Summer has been killin' it for me! I've been loving these past few rainy days among the notably hot days. Life has been been super busy with: friends, my internship at Deux Hommes (check out my last post here), making hella' drinks at Starbucks, and struggling through microeconomics. I guess I'm not complaining minus the last part, micro is the worst!

Last week my fabulous friend Katie Campbell (who has also been killing it at CollegeFashionista) took some pictures of me wearing my favourite new dress. When I got home from college I was so stressed out upon not having ample space in my closet. So I decided to give in and sell a few pieces of mine on Vinted. Thus far it has been pretty successful! You have the option to swap or sell and I've been swapping a whole lot! Oops! Do you want to know what I swapped for this Anna Sui dress? A gold clutch I used once for prom last year! Pretty sweet deal, huh?

Well I am wearing an Anna Sui dress, my beloved silver birkenstocks, and Sephora's "Escape to Rio" lipstick in Neon Rouge Bikini (I'm obsessed). Hope summer is treating all of you! What are you spending your summer doing? I found out pretty recently I'll be going back home to NYC for a week and spending some time in the Poconos!

If you saw my last post you may have noticed that I was asked to be featured in a blogger spread by CHICSA Magazine recently! So I decided to give my take on fringes & frills for the summer/fall trend. Have you heard? Fringe is the new peplum! Similar to my last post, I am not going to share the entire post for you since it'll be in the issue but I wanted to give y'all another preview. (;

I have been dying to wear this intimately embroidered button front slip from Free People since I bought it months ago. It is singlehandedly one of the loveliest things in my closet. I just wish I knew how to wear it more. Luckily, I've styled this look a few different ways for my CHICSA article.

Personally, I like making this slip more Fleetwood Mac-esque and wearing it in the day time. I think another perfect way to wear this would be with a white maxi or with shorts and a nice tank. In all honesty I think we tend to overcomplicate pieces like these, so do what feels natural to you. Whether it be rocking it late at night, out shopping, or sleeping in it! Putting this piece over a maxi dress is ultimately what felt natural to me. Katie and I had so much fun taking these photos.

My hat is from target, maxi dress from Forever 21, intimately embroidered button front slip from Free People, and silver birkenstocks from Target.

Thanks again to the lovely Katie Campbell at Katherine Campbell photography these shots are incredible =')


Lady Lavender

Posted on: Saturday, May 24, 2014

I never wear lavender. At all. When I was in fourth grade my mother insisted on making me wear a lavender dress for a photoshoot, and I've detested the colour ever since. Now, I can't seem to get enough. Lavender nails, lavender toes, even Lady Lavender in Clue! I've also heard lavender lipstick is the new red? So when I recently tucked this lavender Free People dress as my second item on Bib and Tuck I realized I was turning over a new leaf, a lavender leaf. If y'all don't remember I posted a little about Bib & Tuck over Thanksgiving break, check out my post here. Essentially I got this lovely lavender dress for putting up some old shoes I didn't wear anymore. Pretty neat huh?

I was asked to be featured in a blogger spread by CHICSA Magazine recently! Among 5-6 other bloggers I was given the opportunity to give the readers a new spin on a popular summer/fall trend. I chose fringes & frills as my summer/fall trend. I was asked to recreate the look in five to six different ways. Obviously I'm not going to share the whole post with you because you'll see it in the magazine (; but I thought I'd share with you my first look.

I am perpetually amazed with bloggers who can keep a leather jacket strewn on their shoulders. It's a lot more difficult than it seems. Man, I could barely keep this jacket on my shoulders while running across the street. In my hands I have my near and dear first generation kindle in an orange Marc by Marc Jacobs kindle case. For the kindle being first generation these Marc cases are pretty pricey, luckily I got this one for $25.99 on eBay. I'm slowly learning to keep my friends close and my kindle even closer. I am also wearing a lavender lace dress from Free People which I tucked on Bib & Tuck, leather jacket from Aeropostale, shoes Tommy Hilfiger.

May Day

Posted on: Thursday, May 22, 2014

Katherine Campbell and I were recently united and had the grandest time may I add! I hadn't seen her since Christmas break so catching up and working on another project which I'll air soon (; was too much fun. Later in the day I wore this outfit to a graduation party! How do you feel about my birkenstocks? I'm obsessed with these shoes and guess where they're from?! Target! They are essentially Giambattista Valli's Grommet embellished leather sandal + Rachel Zoe or J-Crew's silver birkenstocks! The difference is that I got them for ten times less. I'm ready to get back into the blogging groove, hope you're ready!

I am wearing a floral dress that my roommate gave me, leather jacket from Aeropostale, sunglasses from Target, satchel from the Cambridge Satchel Co., and birkenstocks from Target.
