this lookbook is one of my all time favorites. it literally has me feeling an urge to make a trip to Miami since that is the closest LF store..road trip anyone?!
the color-blocking in the second photo is genius, love those colors together. i have an outfit in mind for my color-blocking experimentation, hopefully i don't look like an easter egg!
hope you gain inspiration from this collection as well on this lovely Friday!

if your city is anything like mine than you've been experiencing ever changing weather that goes something like this: HOT/COLD/HOT/COLD/HUMID/COLD...
this is one of my colder day outfits that i wore to my office job then onto a dinner party with my girl friends. gotta love an outfit that can take you from day to night!

even though i missed out on the jams at Coachella thanks to Refinery 29 i don't have to miss out on the festival wear! they have 60+ photos-these are among my favorites-even my boyfriend said "that looks like something you'd wear" --YEP!

details: dream catcher necklace/H&M, all bracelets/vintage, left ring/music festival, right (big)/luv low x erin wasson, right (small)/vintage via San Diego Swap Meet
details: hat/vintage Anne Taylor, top/F21, skirt/vintage, sandals/Sam Edelman, purse/vintage, neckband thing/America Apparel
been dying to share these Sam Edelman Boutique wedges with you all! apparently Edelman teamed up with DSW and created an exclusive line of shoes that are a little less expensive yet chic and the same great quality of his regular line. the lower wedge is perfect for me being someone who cannot comfortably wear heels due to injuries nor do i need the height. i am keeping my eye out for more of this line at DSW since these are already a new favorite!
another awesome purchase is this neck tie/band from American Apparel. its made of chiffon and wire and can be twisted to any shape for anything-hair, hat, neck, belt-? you name it. being its AA its not cheap-$14-so if you are crafty i'd DIY it. now that i have one of my own, might just mimic it myself!

assorted bracelets, gold ring from Rag-O-Rama, large ring via F21, nail color is Urban Outfitters "purple 6"
leather and fur earrings made by an Atlanta local-Ali aka Birdalupe.
funny thing about these is they actually turn into "ear wings" when i ride my bike, learned this bombing down California hills as they flapped profusely in the wind.
last set of outfit pictures from my travels to San Diego. didn't take that many outfit shots since i was mostly concentrating on staying comfortable ( and warm!) riding my bike.
two items in this look excite me, number one-the hat. purchased at my boyfriend's friend's vintage shop this vintage Anne Taylor 100% wool piece is a new staple. doesn't destroy my hair and adds the perfect amount of accessory to most looks-you all will soon realize how much i like this hat! number two is the sweater-also vintage-picked it up at the San Diego Swap Meet. for just $4 i walked away with this vintage Saks Fifth Ave. 100% silk sweater. it has already gotten it's fair share of wear as well!
outfit details in full:
hat: vintage Anne Taylor, sweater: vintage Saks Fifth Ave, jeggings: H&M, kicks: UO, bag: vintage Kenneth Cole

a few snaps from one of the days spent in San Diego. since we rode bikes or walked everywhere my attire was on the casual side most of the trip. this particular day was after my bike wreck so i opted for trekking it to Balboa park on foot. we visited the Botanical Gardens, Cactus Gardens and Rose Gardens. got lots of pretty pretty pictures!
oh yea, this is my new haircut. it's quite frizzy here but overall i love it!
have a marvelous weekend!

another night shooting for Sorry,Darlin i sported my new vintage floral blazer i picked up at a thrift shop for something like $1.99. also wearing one of my favorite new necklaces from Madewell, which is actually my first ever purchase from that store-but most definitely not the last! especially with the news that Alexa Chung will be doing another collaboration for the Fall, very excited about this since i missed her first go around, sad times.
haven't mentioned this but i've cut my hair even shorter, next post will show the new do..had to catch up..as usual!
hope everyone's week got a good start!
