Cords (of wood)

What I’m listening to: Surrender by Cheap Trick

Cords. Get it? Like cords of wood, but also like the pants-ah you get it. Did I configure a blog post backdrop around this pun or was it a serendipitous accident, the world may never know. Thankfully they don’t need to, they just need to see these pants. Hot. Pink. Corduroy. I knew the second I saw these pants they were showstoppers, but you know what pairs best with one showstopper? Another one, which is why I paired them with my white boots, which have already cemented their place not only on this blog but also in my heart as a new favorite. (PS I got a new mascara and it is going to need its own post soon.)

Peace,

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,

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,

Lipstick + Plaid

What I’m listening to: Limetown, Episode 3: Napoleon 

Well, it’s for reals the “Holiday Season” now. Which means pie, gingerbread, and those weird ribbon candies no one who doesn’t remember when California wasn’t a state likes (September 9, 1850 btw). So what’s a better coat for the season than the ever-flattering swing coat? Especially this one in such a cheery plaid! (Did that sound appropriately fashion blogger-y? I feel like yes.) The other thing I’m loving is this nude Yves Saint Laurent lipstick (this one is #22). It works great, especially in the cold, because it hydrates and protects your lips. Kind of like a grown up version of my favorite lip balm of all time Baby Lips. Alas, I must now wrap this post up, somewhere in the world someone is unwittingly purchasing ribbon candy and I must warn them before it’s too late.
