I hope everyone had a good weekend! I went to some yard sales a couple of weeks ago, and I found some amazing pieces, including this white vintage dress. I even talked to the lady who owned it – it was actually her wedding dress. Learning a story behind a piece of clothing always makes it that much more interesting to me.

Let me apologize for the post being a day late! The past few days have been busy.

I went back to East Ninth Vintage (where I got the Neiman Marcus coat that I wore here), and I had a wonderful experience. I went right in looking for a wide brimmed hat, one that was a little more contemporary. I had been looking around for more local boutiques and shops, because I’ve always felt that you find the most unique pieces in places like these. I talked to Dayna Duncan, the proprietor, about what I was looking for. She went out to her car and brought back the perfect hat.

I wanted to bring in a spring pattern, now that the weather has been a little more mild. I really loved how the texture, and color in the hat brought together all the different shades,  I made my outfit complete with the yellow stone ring, which I wanted to stand out against the cool colors.

I took one of my best friends to this shoot. It was a lot of fun, but I was laughing almost the whole time! :) 

I found this red dress suit at a thrift store, and I knew exactly what I would do with it. It’s one of those pieces that is simple enough that you don’t have to do too much with it, but a couple of pieces of jewelry and the right purse can really bring out the color. I decided to stick with nude heels – I’ve mentioned before that nude heels really show off your legs, and I didn’t want to draw attention to my feet.

I hope everyone had a great spring break! :) 

I’m a fan of all these crazy spring prints, with fewer pastels and more bold colors. I saw the new Peter Pilotto line at Target, and it finally went on sale. I wasn’t a big fan of all of the designs but I figured that side of the patterns would blend well with other things in my closet. I’ve already used the crop top look, but I’m a huge fan of it. I added a vintage beaded jacket and my light blue converse to add color and give it a casual, fun feel. I actually found these converse at a local Goodwill store for 4 dollars. They were practically brand new!

I went to Anthropologie a couple weeks ago. I always feel like I’m not supposed to be in there every time I see how expensive everything is. But for some reason it’s like once I got to the clearance section I could breathe. I found this amazing striped dress. I’m typically not a fan of sequins, but the skirt sold me. I found a couple of other items as well, but this dress had quality I knew I couldn’t find elsewhere.

I was so excited to wear it that I neglected to check the weather like I usually do before the shoot. It ended up pouring rain, but fortunately you can’t tell how bad the weather was in the pictures.

I paired the satin bow shoes with the dress for a fun look and to keep the material the same, since leather would have detracted from the softness of the dress.

Ever since Memphis I feel like I’ve gotten a little bit of a 50’s trend going on.

 I wanted to go for a contemporary greaser look, and add a little more of the current trends. I slicked back the sides of my hair and teased the top. It looked a little more dramatic in person. It was super easy to do as well, and completely changed my overall look.

 I just recently got some midi rings, I originally got mine from forever21 but the color started fading pretty badly, so I ended up ordering some sterling silver ones from an Etsy shop.  I love the idea of adding layers, cause it can really add depth to an outfit, and the midi rings really do more than I thought with that.  

Sterling Midi rings: Etsy (TinyBox12) : $15

Sunglasses: Target clearance: $5

I found this amazing faux fur coat at a yard sale awhile back, and I’ve paired it with my OBEY shirt I got while I was in California.  I’m not usually a big fan of animal print patterns, but when it’s paired properly it doesn’t have to look cheap.  I wanted to add layers onto the outfit to give it a more slouchy look, so I used my double chained necklace to add dimension.  Whenever I imagine a look I’m going for I always try to keep the layers very clean, so it doesn’t overwhelm the ensemble.

Hey, everyone. I feel like I haven’t posted in forever, but it’s only been a week. I wish I could post more often, because it’s always the best part of my week.

When I wear long skirts I’ve always imagined running free through a big field.  It’s a comfortable style, but I can easily get stuck when I put an outfit together with a long skirt. I try to go earthy depending on the style and color. Since mine is an olive green,  I wanted to pair it with a simple top, but incorporate a brown-red and maroon to pop out the colors. The top’s embellishments added that little bit of color, and it paired with the  hippie look.  I wanted it to be reminiscent of the 70’s.

Let me know what you think of it!

I hope everyone has a great week!

I was able to do pictures in Hot Springs on my day off, and thankfully the weather was amazing!

I wanted to incorporate a lot of my favorite casual pieces in an outfit to show my version of a glossed up street style. Denim is always my go-to for a casual effect, so when I found this Harper jacket I couldn’t help but think of how many of my pieces it would go with.  I added the jewelry as a statement piece so I could have color and look a bit more classic.
