…we were snowed in this past weekend which in my mind means freezing my butt off taking pictures. worth it, yes. it also means letting my inner child play all day in the snow with my little brother, i’m pretty sure i had more fun than him. i promise i put more clothes on before playing in it 🙂 ..today marks a new year, 2012 had its ups and downs and i am just so thankful for the new possibilities that come with 2013. i hope everyone had a wonderful holiday….

…today i went to the city for the first time in about half a year! i live so close, i really have no excuse as to why i never go. that being said, my spontaneous trip with a friend made me fall in love all over again with its people and atmosphere…not to mention the shopping! i have vowed (just like every other time i go) that i will go more often but this time i think i really mean it….

summer nights…

{old navy shirt, h&m sweater, charlotte russe skirt, marshalls shoes, ny&co watch}

….summer weather is always unpredictable, i like to keep a light sweater with me for the chilly nights. today was beautiful until it began down-pouring on and off all day long. i was forced to take pictures at 9pm, in between eating some of the purple spoon’s amazing brownies of course 🙂 ….

red specs…

…saying its been awhile since i posted is an understatement, i’m so sorry for my extended absence. after much prying and complaining from ..cough..meghan…cough…i’m back on! please be patient with me (i’m still trying to figure out how to get pictures of my outfits everyday now that my beloved photographer/sister is back at work 😦 )…

gone with the wind…

{thrifted tank top, express cardigan, nine west booties, thrifted skirt}

…i kid you not, i stepped outside my car and almost fell due to the ferocious wind knocking me over. after a sunny turned rain/snow/wind week, taking pictures outside was near impossible. that being said i’ve been living in tights and these booties all week…

feels like spring…

{target shirt, h&m skirt, michael kors belt and shoes}

…the weather was beautiful yesterday, i was able to wear my favorite spring skirt while visiting some friends and catching up from vacation. i have to brag for a minute, i have the best set of friends a girl could ask for one of them being my lovely friend who recently had a baby. we had a beautiful afternoon taking full advantage of the weather by taking a walk through the neighborhood with her handsome baby boy…

sequin envy…

{j.crew shirt, marshalls skirt, macy’s shoes}

…i’ve been on the hunt for a sequin shirt for quite sometime now. it seemed that every time i found one they were either out of my size or sold out (or because i said “i’ll come back for it” and waited too long). for what ever the reason, i’m glad i didn’t buy any of them! while mindlessly scrolling through different sites i spotted this shirt, and knew not to make the mistake of waiting again…

into the wild…

{express skirt, the limited shirt, express cardigan and belt, steve madden shoes}

…into the wild, referring to my closet of course. i was looking for something to wear and came across this leopard print skirt, i don’t remember the last time i wore it…okay or the last time i saw it for that matter. you know in the movie toy story how all the toys come to life as soon as you leave the room, i have the same problem but with my clothes. at any given time my clothes disappear and only resurface when feeling needed again…

thoughts on stripes…

{target shirt, h&m skirt, belt and jacket, hue tights, charlotte russe shoes}

…as i was thinking of what to write my mind happened to wander off into vesta land….like how i have class once a week and it just so happens that every class i’ve been to i’ve worn some sort of stripes. i love stripes (i may have a slight obsession with them) but my over-thinking tendencies are usually spent on silly things that only i would ever really notice…

stripes + orange = love

a casual hello….

{express sweater, express tank top, ny&co skirt, aldo shoes}

… my sister and i love shopping together but even when we don’t we still always end up buying the same clothing. it’s an off day when we don’t meet up somewhere wearing the same thing. chunky knits have been our go-to item this year.  it’s an effortless look (and arguably the most comfortable piece of clothing you’ll ever wear) creating a chic style for the transitioning months into spring. i like to wear mine with a pop of color from shoes or flat casual boots…
