Monochromatic and Motley Prints


It seems I cannot get enough of this particular hat lately. It just compliments so many of my outfits in the best way possible! But, that being said, I definitely think I need to invest in some more hats. Lately I have been lusting over LLR Vintage’s super wide brimmed fedoras and pretty much every hat by Lack of Color. Their hats are insane, and I cannot wait to get my hands on one of them as soon as I can!


For this look, I wanted my outfit to be classy yet quirky and bold with a hint of sass. The sass obviously being my crop top; it’s vintage and was my mothers. Even though the cold temperatures are lingering in my area, I cannot resist still rocking my favorite newish trend. I am totally guilty of still wearing crop tops off and on all winter…and why not? I feel like it is easy to minimize that exposed area and make it just a peek of skin, all the while piling on the layers everywhere else. After all, it is still warm indoors! There are only a few styles and trends that I all together stop wearing from season to season. I have never been the girl to divvy up my wardrobe and put away my summer clothes in expectation of winter or the latter. What is the point of having a wardrobe you can’t rock mostly year round? I am a huge believer in transition pieces, or maybe I am just a believer of making most of my wardrobe transition throughout every season.


This look is basically all vintage, with the exceptions of my hat and tights. My skirt and boots I found while thrift store hunting a few years ago. I just recently started wearing these boots again, before now I had not worn them in years. I love the pop of color they add and adore pairing red on red with them in this outfit. I wore my acid wash jacket in a previous post as well, it’s vintage Jordache and was also my mother’s; bless her fashion taste!

Blue Jean Baby

Hello again beauties! 
Here are a few outfit shots I took before heading out to work one night. Sometimes my work outfits bore me, but this day was a little different. I got to wear my vintage denim Gap skirt and thrifted denim top that I bleached.  The skirt was my mothers<3 I have a few studs left in the collar of my top as well, I put them in a few years ago. Most of them have fallen out, but I still adore it. I opted for my sparkly navy tights to add a little more pizzazz, and finished off the look with my Forever 21 flatform boots and H&M wide brimmed fedora. I think its a nice, quirky, businessy balance. Oh, and don't mind my pup photobombing! ;-)

An Old Room, a Fresh View

 Hello again loves, and welcome to my little sanctuary! In other words, my bedroom. After awhile of combing through my brain for ideas on what I wanted, I finally redecorated! I have been in this apartment for awhile now, and when I found out I was not going to be moving like I originally thought; I decided a change was still necessary!

  I basically just reorganized my room, added more decorations, and also rearranged my already displayed decor. It is now so much more welcoming and comfortable! I made a huge effort to be more organized, and although there are still a few bits and bobs to take care of, this new look has already made getting ready loads easier. I have made all of my jewelry dedicated to the top of my bookshelf and I kept my longer necklaces hanging up on an alternate wall. I moved my bed to be up against the wall and this allowed for a bit more space. I added pillows all along the wall next to my bed, which created an over-sized couch feel that I adore.


My dog Mogley still has his own little space for his toys and food, but I may do more with his area! He is seriously like my child, so I am thinking he needs a comfy bed as well---even though he usually ends up sleeping with me. 

One of my favorite new additions to my wall has to be my silver crescent moon mirror. It was my mothers and used to hang up in our old bathroom. I adore reminders like this that make me feel nostalgic and even more at home.


I utilized regular hangers to organize my belts as well as my eye wear collection. I totally got inspired by blogger Lua Perez of LeHappy to arrange my sunnies this way. She posted a photo a while back showing she did the same thing! If anyone has any other great organizing tips, let me know. I am dying to discover even more innovative ideas!


 For this lazy, bedroom hangs look, I wanted to keep it pretty casual. So casual in fact, that I opted to shoot without shoes!  I am wearing faux leather leggings from Forever 21(current legging options) & I got this pair years ago. My hat is also from Forever 21(current hat options) from a few years back and I have worn it in a previous post. The top and crochet vest are both thrift finds. The t-shirt I found a few years back and ended up cutting the neck out of it. The vest I received as a gift this year, I adore the fringe at the bottom! It is definitely a piece that I am loving a lot at the moment. In case you did not notice, my hair is way blonder here as well...yay! Right now my hair is pale pink mixed with blonde, but you will see more of that in another post. My accessories are from random places, and this is my first time wearing this choker. It's an actual dog collar; but I couldn't resist! Whatever works, right? Oh, and the sparkly bra I am wearing is beyond my most comfortable and also affordable, its from Urban Outfitters.


 I actually decided to wear eyeliner in this post as well, which I am loving. Nothing beats a classic cat-eye and a bold lip, am I right? As for the rest of my apartment, I am still hashing out the details as to what I want to do with it. So, expect even more updates regarding my apartments reorganization. I will also as always update daily on my Instagram and Tumblr. So be sure to head over there and check out what other things I have been up to; don't be shy, say hi if you would like!  I love checking out new blogs and instas to follow :-)
