Outfit thoughts..

Tomorrow is my 21st and my biggest concern is what to wear so I get a good picture! I’m loving, LOVING over the knee boots with shorts.   It’s not everyones cup of tea, I get that but its mine and I LOVE the look. Trying too look through my closet to see how I can rock it! I like when its more edgy rather then like instagram famous vibes if that makes sense?

Regardless of what you think of the Kardashians I LOVE the way Kendall is wearing her boots with shorts. This is a more casual version.

Chrissy Teigen’s is more night time appropriate so for my outfit I want it to be in the middle of the two.  Most likely need to dig around, do some laundry and get it together but love the look so so much and always have, always will. Can’t wait to recreate it!!!!

Pictures from pinterest!

I want what she’s having…

I love sneakers and at the moment, old school styles are really going strong.  I had a pink pair of Nike Cortez’s in 2nd grade and they’re back!  I love the full on red, white and blue, Forrest Gump Cortezs and the styling opportunities are endless.  They give a basic tee and shorts the kind of vibes I want!  Here is some inspo I’ve found on my favorite place, pinterest.

This Dress…

I’m kind of obsessed with this dress…I liked it when I saw it on a few blogs here and there and then when I saw Beyonce wearing it on instagram I was both feet in.  The dress is more feminine and fitting while I prefer more slouchy, tomboy sorts of styles but I can’t stay away!  I go through phases where I want one of everything so I know that if I like something with longevity, I really do like it.  That can be said for both the shoes and dress…. and Isabel Marant sneakers, purple hair…I’ve got a long list. 

Bits & Pieces

^^^^ Summer is near, summer is here! Woop, woop, woop.  All I want is strappy sandals, distressed denim, and lacey bras.  A bustier style top delivered with distressed 501s and strappy sandals is particularly making my heart go fuzzy at the moment.  I want Tevas toooooo.  My mother laughs at me because she thinks they’re downright fugly but their flaming arch support and durability have me at yes.  We’ll see how that plays out. I hope I love them because I don’t want her to say “I told you sooo!”  Dang mommys and their precise accuracy on just about everything.  If it weren’t for her, I’d own more maxy skirts and terry tracksuits, certainly don’t want that now do we?!^^^^

The French Shirtdress

In the topic of spring trends, I bring to you the shirtdress.  They can be interpreted in a more feminine essence but fear not! That ain’t the case anymore. *cough, sneeze, ah-cho manrepeller
This Rag & Bone number is a totally modern, chic take on a shirt dress.  I like the envelope hem and the thin, black, cord encircling the waist.  It can be perfectly dressed up or perfectly dressed down, need it be. Its pretty dang versatile, too. 
For the dressier side, I think a sky blue Saint Laurent Duffle (swoon) paired with strappy, tritone contraptions of the Jimmy Choo variety are just downright charming with a perfect French vibe.  Bed head, needed.   
For the more casual side, included but not limited to; a grey fedora, a yellow crossbody, and perfect Nike blazers…again, feeling French! Again, again, bed head, needed.  Feeling Deja vu?

What I Want Wednesday

Because I’m feeling extravagant and Wednesday offers a perfect opportunity for witty or typical alliteration [What I Want Wednesday.]  My list below alludes to someone well over my 17 years, perhaps I’m just an old lady with a penchant for books and over the top, cooking appliances.

A pretty library with books stacked in every which way…

A Kitchen Aid mixer… make that a bedazzled kitchen aid mixer.  Holy Moly.  It exudes more femininity then my whole closet. 
Saint Laurent / Louboutin / Margiela / Givenchy
I’m obsessed with yellow; more in accessories, less in clothing.  It’s like mascara; just a swipe and it makes it all better. 


A fair few

These shorts are on constant rotation in my closet.  I love them!! The shoes are a bit excessive since they’re floating around the bloggersphere like those Zara skorts. Just confirmation that I have good taste. Sportwear is the bestest trend at the moment and I’m happy to jump on the bandwagon.  The two paired together are enchanting and sweaty. Then, there is the camo shirt because I’m obsessed with camo at the moment and it seemed like a good idea to mush all my faves together.  This outfit {on me} coming to {your screen} soon. 

Highstreet Homeruns

This week has been insane; so far I’ve had one trip to Urgent care, one trip to the hospital and ONE never ending headache…and its only Thursday!  This is the first time I’ve gotten to go on my laptop this week so I decided to do a little online shopping to make me feel better!  Notice a trend below?  A lack of color… I’ve been starting to lean towards more blacks, grays and denim lately. They make you look skinner so what the heck? Why stop it?!
Topshop 
Shorts – I like a wide leg opening because they make your thighs look skinnier. 
Playsuit – this is just begging to be worn under a white turtleneck or long sleeve. 
Denim Dress – An easy going, throw on, denim, smock dress. 
Boots – I have a penchant for black ankle booties.  
White Tank – This makes think Coachella. 
Black Trousers – I love the track pant with kicks or with dainty sandals look. 
Zara 
Tee w/ Collar – I need a girly shirt to go with the harem pants I just bought! 
White shirt – A kicked up white shirt. 
Hat – How cool is a grey hat?!
Sandals – Jumping on the chunky flats bandwagon. 
Black Shirt – Another contender for my new harem pants. 
Yellow Shorts – Celine or Zara?!

Creating a Masterpiece

Joseph Coat // Skinnies // Louboutin Boots
The camel colored coat and dark wash skinnies are a blank canvas and the shoes are the paint.  The only difference between these shoes and the candy buttons I used to eat when I was 6 are that they’re sans calories and leave you without sticky fingers.  They are a perfect example of a piece that takes the outfit to the next level.  Paired with a camel coat, they make a better tandem then Birkenstocks and boyfriend jeans (not to mention, a far less repelling one.) 
Chic simplicity.
