lace-ups + over-alls.

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

 Overallsssss. Acceptable as a toddler, 25 year old, and not okay again until you're middle aged working in your garden. Jk kinda. Here's a quick example of how to reincarnate those old overalls back into your wardrove without looking super frumpy. I guess the trick is to toss on a feminine shoe. Lace-up sandals or a good pump are automatically going to dress up the denim. I chose a polished short sleeved button up for my blouse. I love the contrast of the bright white with the dark black shoes and simple denim in between. A different take on a white tee and jeans. XO

lace halter.

Monday, May 30, 2016

 95 degrees for Memorial Day weekend, so I had to break out  the smaller pieces of clothing in my closet. Halters, thin strapped dresses, shorts, you know the deal. I paired this mauve colored cropped halter with some olive green high waisted shorts. I don't particularly like to show my midriff, so covered that sucker up real quick. The halter had a tie in the back with a bow, revealing some skin on your back, which I found sweet in the front and sultry from the back. But more importantly, I was able to pull some sandals out of the woodwork. Lots of old sandals that I can olnly show some love 30% of the time. So nice to be able to throw some on the past few days intead of boots. Don't get me wrong, I love a good ankle boot just about every day, but since I can only wear closed toe shoes tow work, sometimes it's nice to switch things up. Hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend and got to finally toss on some real summer clothes finally. XO

mother's day outfit 2016.

Sunday, May 29, 2016

Here's a quick look at my recent Mother's Day attire. Something simple and feminine. I really liked the juxtaposition of the girly lace top paired with more masculine denim joggers. These pants are great and are always easy to throw on with a simple top. The shape and fit are a little less traditional than any other denim bottom and are a nice change than my typical black denim.

go indigo.

 Fast lived was the idea of reintroducing chokers back into our wardrobes. Chokers are out, and bandanas are taking over the fashion scene everywhere you look. I've worn a bandana in another recent post and I can't get enough. I've always had a strange fascination with them. Particularly in middle school when I wore them in my hair as headbands. This indigo dyed bandana was $5 from American Eagle and was such a steal. With the whole indigo trend that's in right now, I get to rock a bandana while keeping it a little more boho and a little less sporty - which is perfect for me.

Hey everyone! Sorry for being super MIA lately. I've been working a lot and in my spare time, been preparing for my first pop-in shop at Calico in Providence RI. It's this Saturday! So super quick, here's just a simple grab & go outfit from a couple weeks ago. As always, comfort is huge for my work so simple ankle boots and a blouse are a great go to. The boots and zippered skinnies keep the peasant blouse from looking too dressy. I hate feeling dressed up. I'd rather a tshirt and jeans any day. Anyways, if you're from around here, swing by Calico PVD this weekend from 11-7 for mimosas, 15% off storewide, and handmade goodies from yours truly! I've been working my butt off on everything so I promise it will be a good time!

PSSSSS - here's a sneak peek at some of my calf-hair numbers.

pins & rips

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

 Whoa whoa. A rarely fleeting moment of me wearing a color that isn't tonal or monochromatic. I've become slightly obsessed with tiny pins and am looking forward to slowly collecting them. And this jacket will be where I keep them. I'd love to hear where everyone else gets their pins! XO

 Yesterday was Star Wars Day so basically the only option was a Star Wars tee. Right, right? Although I was called out for not wearing my hair in two Leia buns. A girl can only do so much! This is a pretty standard outfit for me, given the fact I have to be ready to move around all day with my job that I have. That being said, that would explain why all you see if brick walls and black denim.
