Pattern Party

If you would have asked me three months ago if I would ever be caught dead in something this attention grabbing I would have told you DEFINITELY NOT. This statement alone continues to be one of the reasons fashion still captivates me....one day you can be dressed very plainly & the next, running around in a jumpsuit straight from the '70s.  Since this jumpsuit incorporates such a powerful pattern, I kept the rest of my outfit simple by adding a basic cardigan, black heels, & a vintage nude clutch.

Wearing: Cardigan (U.O.)/ Jumpsuit, Cuff, & Rings (H&M)/ Shoes (F21)
Charm Bracelet (Spell Designs)/ Clutch & Sunnies (Vintage)

I wore a similar version of this outfit for a quick visit to Chicago while I was back in the midwest. Sadly, since it was such a quick trip, I didn't manage to get any photos of just my outfit. I'm loving my latest DIY (see it here) & how it adds just the right amount of color to an otherwise plain-jane outfit. 

Wearing: Sweater, Ring, & Bracelets (H&M)/ Tee (DIY)/ Jeans (Asos)/
Clutch (Marc by Marc Jacobs)/ Heels (J.Crew)/ Sunnies (Vintage)

Photo Friday

Even though this post has nothing to do with fashion, I thought those of you who haven't seen Chicago would enjoy these photos.  A majority of these were taken in Millennium Park downtown, about a 20 min. walk from where I use to live.  These are just a few of the reasons this city is my favorite place in the whole world...

Turband Me On

Rain, rain go away... you're giving me awful hair days! My solution? A turband to help hide the natural waves & frizz this constant wet weather has created.  Because I own a very colorful and printed turband, I opted to keep the rest of my outfit neutral.  After all, turbands were made to draw attention...

Wearing: Vest (vintage, etsy)/ Tee (Crewcuts, J.Crew)/ Pants (F21)/
Ring (YSL)/ Bracelets (AE)/ Wedges (Asos)/ Watch (Casio)/ Turband (DVF)

This editorial is so inspiring...I'm diggin' the color blocking, the minimal jewelry, & the pops of neon (the 4th look is my favorite). Enjoy :)

Fresh Fruit

Just a simple outfit consisting of wardrobe staples thrown together for a quick dinner at one of my favorite mexican restaurants.  I needed a fairly solid base to add my fun/wacky banana jewelry & these studded heels I scored on Ebay awhile back.  Are you guys into the fruit trend? I'm really loving it in the smallest of doses...

 Wearing: Blazer & Sunnies (H&M)/ Tee (F21)/ Jeans (U.O.)/Watch (casio)
Heels (Primark)/ Ring (Vintage)/ Bracelets (DIY, AE, H&M, ASOS)

Easy Like Monday Morning

This poor dress has been stuck in the back of my closet ever since I received it as a gift.  I'm not a fan of the smocked top (not very flattering), but really enjoy the print.  Instead of donating it to Goodwill, I decided to alter it into a maxi skirt.  I topped it off with a Sweatshirt top for a no-fuss, casual look- completely necessary after being trapped in my car for 9hrs.yesterday...

Wearing: Sweat top,  Dress {worn as a skirt},Ring, & Heels (F21)/
Watch (Casio)/ Sunnies (Vintage)/ Bracelets (AE & DIY)
