Red, Studded Glory

In all their red & studded glory, these boots have quickly become a new favorite.  I'll agree they aren't for everyone, but the minute I spotted them online, I just knew I had to have to them.  I wore them out for coffee & couldn't help but style them a bit patriotically...

Written in the Stars

This is probably the last time for leather pants this year, which I can't say I'm that upset about.  We're currently on the road, back to Canada & the normal routine.  Until next time, Iowa...

The Wait is Over

I've been dying to wear this sequin bomber for months now, as it's been hanging quietly in my closet & shimmering each afternoon in the sunlight.  I've also been waiting for a trip home for a few months now too, so it only makes sense to post this as we make our way to the Midwest.  See you shortly, Iowa...

Tomorrow Morning, We'll Be Leaving

We leave tomorrow morning for a much needed trip back to my hometown.  To say I'm excited is an understatement, meaning I probably won't be sleeping much tonight.  Here's a peek at what I've packed, just know I have a few boxes of fun new things that were shipped to my parents house ;)

Packed the basics & some simple jewelry
Gifts & surprises
A comfy travel outfit is key, especially since we'll have one of the dogs with us...

Sunny Side Up

Resurrected this blazer after abandoning it since last summer.  Again, it really is worth shopping in your own closet when you're craving something fresh for the new season.  I've been waiting rather impatiently to wear these heels & am so thankful Mother Nature finally gave in...

A mix of blue & pink paired with accidentally over-ripped denim.  I have the best work-week schedule ever, working only until Wednesday & then back to the Midwest Thursday-Tuesday :)

Photo Friday: Out & About

Happy Friday! Warmer temperatures mean more time spent outdoors, the absence of socks from my wardrobe, bright colors, & new additions.  This weekend will be spent packing for a trip back to the midwest next week & celebrating the manpanion's birthday :)

The heels are back out!
Homemade enchiladas
His & Hers Jays t-shirts
'Just Because' surprises from the manpanion last weekend
Watching the Jays with a few cold ones..
Cheeseburgers on pretzel buns
Upcoming outfit post sneak peek...
The Zara skort that everyone owns & for good reason, it's amazing...

Early Mornings

A little unorthodox this morning, pairing the softness of this lavender cardi with a bold leopard print.  The sun is becoming just warm enough to prohibit hypothermia and bare ankles & wrists are becoming much more acceptable.  And these ear cuffs from H&M? They come in a two pack, which inspired me to wear both of them at the same time...

Inspiration: In the Next Little While

I had my first real taste of Spring this week, you know, sunshine & increasingly warmer temperatures.  It's a sure-fire sign that summer is just around the corner, in which case, I start to look forward to the little luxuries of outdoor living.  I'm specifically looking forward to...

...wearing this acne floral blouse EVERYWHERE.
....drinking a continuous supply of smoothies.
...wearing nothing but brightly-colored lipstick.
....pairing silk blouse with colorful heels.
....curly hair & easy up-do's to combat the heat & humidity.
...quirky summer prints in bright colors.
....wearing this Zara skort more often than not.
....my upcoming girls trip to Cali in June!!!
