Happy Easter!

What I’m Listening to: Just What I Needed by The Cars

Happy Easter! (April Fools!) Isn’t this rose pattern pretty? When I saw it I knew it was going to be my Easter dress. There’s something so spring-y about it! Of course I couldn’t not do a statement shoe, but I wanted to look outside the typical white Easter shoes. These 1980’s inspired red patent leather pointed toe heels were exactly what I was looking for. (Try saying that 5 times fast!)

Peace,

Cupid’s Bows

What I’m Listening to: Modern Day Cain by I Don’t Know How But They Found Me

It’s Valentine’s Day! Okay, yes, technically it’s not anymore, but it was when I started writing this post soo what’s really more historically accurate if you think about it?? Anyway, if you follow my blog you know I love themed clothing for holidays and 2018 Valentine’s was no different. This ensemble is pants + button up + a CAPE. All the same pattern. Which is sky blue and covered in flowers and cherubs (with green piping on the pants). Sometimes I look at clothes and I’m just like “me” and this was definitely one of those occasions. I completed the look with basic makeup (hey you gotta let the cape speak for itself) and platform slip on tennis shoes with bows. (P.S. I got my hair cut)

Red Velvet

What I’m Listening to: Be My Baby by The Ronettes (Fun Fact: The Ronettes is the band my mom, Ronette, was named after)

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and welcome to 2018! It’s been a wild holiday season, but I’ve got a couple posts headed y’all’s way over the next few weeks, so be sure to stay tuned for those. First though, I want to focus on this dress, because it’s one of my favorite pieces in my entire wardrobe. It’s simple but over the top at the same time, AKA: my favorite combination. I kept the rest of my outfit (hair included) fairly streamlined in order to really let the dress stand out and be festive without getting overwhelmed by accessories. But enough technical speak, go forth and see for yourself.

Peace,

Electric Autumn

What I’m Listening to: Drinkee by Sofi Tukker

People don’t think electric blue is a fall color. I know because I googled it. Apparently “fall colors” are limited to red, orange and yellow (I guess that’s why target currently looks like someone set a maple tree on fire). Here’s the thing they seem to be missing though: I’m not trying to blend in with the landscape. It’s fashion not camo. So, continuing my lifelong trend of being contrary just for the sake of it, you know I’m wearing electric blue. A layering turtleneck + a corduroy jumper dress + platforms = the perfect blue autumn outfit.

Cats on a Dress

What I’m Listening to: Wish I Knew You by The Revivalists

First off, I know. Isn’t it amazing? A timelessly romantic silhouette, ready to sink into the river à la Ophelia but with bold graphic script and photo printed kittens to make it exactly the sort of statement piece I love. This kind of dress needs an equally trendy shoe, so my Ash platforms give me that fashion feel (and the height I love, fight me I like being extra-tall).Peace,

Hey Nineteen

What I’m Listening to: Take My Love and Run by Bad Suns

And just like that I’m in my last year of being a teenager. Somehow 13 seems like it was both yesterday and a very long time ago, so I guess that evens out to, like, 6 years. Life is weird, but I don’t want this post to just be me pondering the concept of how life seems to move fast and slow at the same time, so let’s talk about my birthday. I went to New Orleans for the weekend and it was a total blast. I went to see live jazz playing on Bourbon Street, ate beignets at Café Du Monde and just generally explored the best of New Orleans. Here’s the greatest hits (yes, I did buy one of those paintings):

Pick A Peach

What I’m Listening to: First by Cold War Kids

I had a very long post (by my standards) written out for this post, it used all kinds of illiteration and adjectives, just the thing to make my old writing 200 teacher very happy. But let’s be real, you don’t want to hear me wax nostalgic about a peach farm you’re never going to visit, so I did us both a favor and scrapped it. The gist of my day was: I went to a U-pick peach farm in rural Arkansas and it was such a beautiful day outside that afterwards I dragged everyone to this little historical site just to hang out and enjoy the day a little more. It was such a fun day, the kind that makes you understand why 2/3rds of all songs on the radio are just based off the concept of summer. (Though arguably I think they should definitely sing some more about peaches, because they were amazing.)

Peace,
