Boho Comfy for a Lazy Afternoon

I love the mixture of textures and prints in this look. 
It is always in the details for me. 

Sweater: Lucky Brand
Denim Dress: H&M
Tights: American Apparel
Shoes: JC Bolen Fabs
Necklace: Target 
Sunglasses: Vintage, circa 1970s


Recycle: How to pair it over, and over, and over again...

Do you ever have those pieces that you could wear over and over again?
I love finding new and creative ways to style some of my favorite pieces. 
Here are some of my ultimate pieces that I like to wear over and over again, 
but always with a different flare. Future spring piece makeovers in the works :)

My Brown Leather Jacket:
I waited about three years to find the perfect leather jacket, and I finally found one about a year ago, while I was visiting family in England. When purchases expensive pieces, it so important to me to find pieces that I will like for a long time. This jacket's details, in particular, were so intricate that I fell in love immediately. 

Flirty Lace Skirt:
I love this skirt, which was so cheap from F21. It is a great piece for the spring. I can't wait to wear it once the weather gets warmer: a little skin would make the skirt so hawt <3. 

That LBD: 
I have a bunch of black dresses, but this simply jersey long sleeve one was my ultimate favorite this winter. The ruching of the dress is my favorite part; it makes it look like a skirt when layered.

Cashmere Cozy Grandpa Cardigan: 
I got this treasure from my grandmother. It is so warm, and has the perfect amount of lazy grandma chic without being frumpy. I could wear this over any outfit. 

Everyday Booties:
I'm not really a shoeaholic. I tend to wear a pair of shoes over and over in a season, to the point where I can't wear them again. These Steve Madden booties have been my staple boot this season. I liked them because I found them to be pretty season neutral. 

Striped Long Sleeve Shirt: 
Once you find the perfect long sleeve shirt, its pretty hard to stop wearing it.
 I love stripes, so this shirt was a great find.  
The details of the front

Printed Leggings:
My mom thought I was ridiculous for buying leggings with bears all over them. She didn't think I would get a lot of use out of them: oh was she wrong! I love these leggings, which I wear all the time. They are so much fun to pair with different colors and trends. My little hipster prep (yes, a bit ironic) comes out when I put them on.

Playful Spring: Pattern Layering

The rain has finally stopped, so I was able to do a quick look today. 
The bright weather inspired me to wear a fun spring look, 
playing with some pattern and color ideas. 
I love leopard print; I think my closet might have an overload. 
This dress is awesome because it can be worn in so many ways:
 in winter months I like to pair it with turtlenecks and long sleeves,
 and in the warmer months, I can wear it with tees/oxfords or simply by itself. 
Like I said earlier, I was really in a playful mood-
 the result: plaid, spots, and stripes. 
I love being able to play around with different ideas. 
Here are some pictures of this spring look: 

Playful Spring Look: 
Plaid Shirt: Old Navy; Little Boy's Department
Leopard Jumper: F21
Cashmere Striped Crew Neck Sweater: Margaret O'Leary 
Heather Blue Tights: H&M
Brown Booties: H&M
Colored Rings: H&M
Bag: Mulberry  


Favorite: Terry Richardson

I absolutely love Terry Richardson's photography. 
The way that he captures famous celebrities in such ordinary situations is genius:
I die for pure beauty on a plain white backdrop.
Oh yeah, and I guess sex sells too. 
You can check out his online picture diary for these and many more:

What do you think? Do you like Terry, or is he just too much?

Printed Heels

As a post college graduate, there is no way that I could personally afford high-end designer shoes. 
In my opinion though, if one is going to spend a lot of money on a pair of heels, it should probably be spent on a pair that will stand out. 
Forget basic satin pumps, this season is all about heels with an attitude. 
As a lover of patterns and colors, I am overjoyed with this trend. 
Now, if I could only afford some of these heels...
Manolo Blahnik Rinchinita Ruffle Pump

Miu Miu Taffeta Point Tow Bow Pumps

Salvatore Ferragamo Houndstooth Printed Genuine Python Pumps

Valentino Daisy Canvas Pump

YSL Poppy Print wedge Pump

Same Edelman "Orly" Slingback Pump:
Definitely more in my price range

YSL Starfish Print Linen Pump

ZARA Fabric Sandal:
Another shoe more in my budget

Pictures for a Rainy Day

The weather has been absolutely awful today, so I am doubting that I'll get the chance to do a quick look (which is actually a good thing for me because I have been so lazy today :P ). 
While I was playing around on my computer today, I came across some pictures from a trip I took to the Baltic about two years ago. 
I love looking at old pictures (whether they are mine or someone else's). These pictures, in particular, are making me pine for summer to come. 

Hope you enjoyed these travel pictures!
