When you get it, you got it.

There is just something about this oversized white button up.  It gets me, you know?  It’s like “Hey, I’m here.  I’ll give you so much room to play.”  While also being like, “You can do this!  You can be an adult that can wear a white shirt all day and not spill anything!  Get it girl.”   And I look in the mirror and I’m just like, “Cool.” The pants have a little of the same magic, don’t you think?  Baggy, but not too baggy.  Cropped, but not capris.  Also, they have a drawstring waistband…. I hope to grow up to have the gumption of this outfit one day.   Shirt: Millimétré // Jeans: Vintage // Boots: Helmut Lang // Bag: Hare & Hart // Hat:...
World’s Best Superpower.

World’s Best Superpower.

While this vintage jumpsuit might not look like much, it’s one of the fundamental pieces in my wardrobe.  Mostly because it’s the easiest thing to throw on, but also because it actually says something.  What does it say?  Well, it kind of just says that I am lazy, but also that I found something unique and I’m not afraid to wear it! To be honest (or TBH, is that what the kids are saying these days?), one of these jumpsuits isn’t that hard to find, you could probably find one today if you looked around a bit.  I even linked to ones that are new that are quite a lot like this one, in case you aren’t into the vintage hunt kind of thing.  As for the hat?  This hat!  I can’t express to you in words how very awesome this hat via Millimétré is.  The most magical blue felted wool and perfect shape… I’m kinda making it sound like you will have super powers when you wear it, and it’s pretty much not far from that.  I mean, the ability to cover up a bad hair day at any given moment is quite the super power, no?  And now we are to the shoes (also via Millimétré) and Valas Los Angeles bag!  Shiny shoes?  No brainer.  White bag that’s so fresh and oh-so-clean? Done!  Wearing three statement pieces like the hat, bag, and shoes all in one outfit can be hard sometimes.  This is where the jumpsuit comes into play.  If you have a larger canvas of clothing to play with, say something like this green jumpsuit or...
IT’S A ROBOT.

IT’S A ROBOT.

I’m really, REALLY, into knee high socks right now.  I have no idea what spurred the whole thing… possibly that it’s one of the only aspects of fall that I can actually bring into my wardrobe when it’s 85+ degrees outside.  (Are you sick of me complaining about the heat?  Cause I’m sick of it.)  Either way, I’m into the socks.   Ankle boots are a great accompaniment to such socks and then of course, the real winner here, a short little shift dress from House of Cannon. But, my friends, not just any little shift dress.  ONE WITH A ROBOT.  Yes, a robot!  In case you missed it in the pictures above, it’s a robot.  A pink one even, and I’m pretty sure nothing goes better with boots and knee highs than a shift dress with a bright pink robot on it. Honestly, nothing goes better with anything than a bright pink robot.  How many times have I said robot in this paragraph?  If you don’t get it by now, there is no hope for you.   Now that we have that cleared up, I still needed a bag.  I really liked the idea of pulling more fall into the look, while also adding a bit more interest, so I chose a bag with autumnal hues and a woven pattern.  I like this bag as a day-to-day kinda bag, but it would also be perfect as a carry on!  Multifunctional pieces are where it’s at people!   Then, to balance the whole thing out, as there was a lot of dark towards the lower half of my body,...
Adventures in White Dressing.

Adventures in White Dressing.

You guys, I went for it.  Went for what you ask?  A WHITE DRESS.  My goodness, the anxiety that normally comes with a white dress… Can you see through it?  Is my underwear line visible? What about in this light?  How about that light?  What if I turn this way and stick my butt out a little bit?  (I seriously do this when determining the sheerness of a fabric I am wearing.  My boyfriend gets a kick out of it every time.) When I first read that the fabric used to make this dress was opaque, my first thought was “Mmmmhmmmm. In your dreams.”  But, against my better judgement, I went for it anyway.  I mean is there a more quintessentially summer piece than a white halter dress?  I’m here to tell you folks, there is not.  You know that though, right?  So there I was when the package came, waiting to see right through this dress as I put it on, just to be pleasantly proven wrong by the geniuses over at Marie Hell.  Can you imagine?  A white dress that you can’t see right through?  Impossible!  Can you see through this dress though?  No my friends, you cannot.   So here I am, going about my lovely business in my opaque white dress!  I wanted to add a little color (always), so went for this pink hat almost immediately.  Black band around pink hat?  Well that calls for black boots I think!   Black boots?  I think that means black purse!   Oh.  Nope.   A black bag was just not vibin’, which sometimes happen in the wild...
