Lumberjack Chic

From On April 16, 2010

Another day with Kenny and he captured some more amazing photographs. I was never one that was big on plaid. I like it, but every time I went to try it I hated it on me. This shirt from the Gap I found on sale and thought it would be so versatile. Bottom line, I made myself get it. So with the whole plaid and ripped denim look and all the trekking through the wilderness, I felt like I was either about to milk a cow or chop down a tree. All in my 4.5 inch wedges. I ordered them a couple of months ago from Revolve Clothing, but had never worn them until now. After realizing how comfortable they were I immediately went home and ordered another pair of sandals by the same brand.

Now I know the shorts are ridiculously short and I used to be so against wearing short denim shorts. I loooove being in skirts and dresses in warm weather, but sometimes there are those days when you just want to throw on shorts with a tank and go. These shorts hit my leg at such an awkward spot that I cut them shorter and frayed the edges until strings were hanging.

Overall, I love this look and the fact that I tried something that I wouldn’t have normally chosen. Not to mention the background! The fungus-decorated trees and the random patches of grass. Hope you guys enjoy it as well!

I’m wearing a shirt and belt from the Gap, Free People shorts, Pelle Moda Yaritza wedges, J.Crew bracelet and ring.

Two Yellow Lines

From On April 12, 2010


Kenny and I drove around trying to find an interesting backdrop for some more photos and chose this semi-busy road. With posing in between running from cars that were approaching, they didn’t turn out too bad. I’ve been looking for some tapered pants with pleating at the top. While I would rather have found some pants that were more fitted on the bottom, these pants from H&M would have to work for now. They’re high-waisted and have front and back pockets. Love them. The down side? They give off the appearance of a pouch in the front, so I had to pose carefully.

I love this silk top because of the periwinkle blue color. I always make sure to grab silk tops from Forever 21 (most of the time) when I see them. It’s always a good deal. Now this was the necklace I got from Madewell that I mentioned in an earlier post. The lucite stones and brass chains make a nice combination.

The suede Gibbard booties are from ALDO. They’re pretty comfortable and the ghillie ties are also a big trend in footwear for spring.

Ideal For Easter

From On April 4, 2010

When I think of Easter I automatically think of florals and pastel-colored clothing. I’m not sure why, though. Why don’t I think of the Easter Bunny, chocolates, or Easter egg hunts? Probably because I am no longer a child! Since those days are long gone, the focus has turned to dressing for Easter festivities when the holiday finally rolls around. Whether it be for church or dinner with the family, I’ve got a couple of ideas as to what makes a great Easter outfit.

Above you will find two looks:

On the model is the Floral Applique’ Tank Dress (from Torrid and available in sizes 12-26). The style of this dress works well on busty women or those that want to take the focus off of their middle area. The dress masks the tummy, but still gives you a flattering shape. Pair it with a cropped black cardigan for more coverage and later wear it with a denim jacket and flat black sandals for a more casual look. Adorable!

For the second look I collected a few pieces. The Shirred Silk Floral Print Dress (from Newport-News and available in sizes 0-16) caught my eye. It hits below the knee unlike the first dress, but still comes in at the waist and has more of an A-line cut. Layer it with the pale pink B.P. Three Quarter Sleeve Cardigan (from Nordstrom). The Faux Pearl Studs and Layered Pearl Necklace are both from Forever 21. I chose pearls because they are clean and simple, letting the print on the dress stand out by itself. The two pairs of shoes are for two different looks. The Michael Antonio Solstice Sandals give a more dressed up vibe and the Dolce Vita Hayden Wedge is a little more casual (both from Endless). Top it off with the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch (from Museten) and your look is complete!

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

Masculine Femininity

From On March 31, 2010

Another beautiful day at the lake, what can I say? Today I wore this shirt-dress by Plastic Island. I loooove this brand! I remember walking into their showroom at the California Market Center in Los Angeles a couple of years ago. It was during one of their monthly sample sales and I racked up on three pieces for a really good price. It was love at first sight, for sure! So when the brand made its debut at Shopbop I was more than thrilled. When I saw this dress I bought it without thinking twice. I love its feminine draping on the sides and its boyfriend button-up appeal. Thank you, Shopbop (again)! This website is my absolute favorite and it never lets me down when it comes to providing the best, fashion-forward pieces. Now the shoes are by Jessica Simpson. I chose to pair them with the dress to give it that edge.

Oh, and these photos were also taken by Kenny. Thank you! They are lovely and make me wish you were around all the time! View more of his photography here!

Ruffle Fling

From On March 25, 2010

I definitely went out and took advantage of the nice weather on this day. Cloudy skies and warm temperatures are good in my book. It’s been a while since my friend Kenny took some shots of me. So as you might have guessed, I got dressed and we headed down to the lake. The natural setting never gets old and it will only become more beautiful once the flowers start to bloom.

I love this look. It’s really fiesta-like with the ruffles, the colors, and the earrings. I wore a shirt from the Gap and the skirt is from Urban Outfitters. Isn’t it adorable? I couldn’t pass it up. The orange studded belt is also from the Gap, while the cream studded belt is from The Levi’s Store. I have an obsession with belts, but it’s weird because I barely wear them. The shoes are by Pour la Victoire, one of my favorite shoes brands.

The pictures turned out really well. Thank you so much to Kenny! Check out more of his photography here!
