something that boredom does.



I was having fun editing some practice photos I took today and came up with this weird...thing. Enjoy! :P

run 'em like run 'em run 'em.








(Top - Anthropologie, shorts - Urban Outfitters, necklace - gift, wedges - Jeffrey Campbell Abierto)

I bought this top on sale from Anthropologie a few weeks ago and realized that the crochet trim on the top matched the trim on shorts that I already owned! Which is why I love wearing them together. It's like a suit combo. Sort of. Paired them with an equally whimsical charm necklace (a birthday gift from my mother quite a few years ago) and some rad Jeffrey Campbell wedges that were being neglected. Perfect outfit to kick up dirt in.

hello, minkpink.


(Dress - Mink Pink, boots - Bedstu, bracelets - UO, bag - Rebecca Minkoff)

I've had this dress for awhile but it still makes me happy to wear it! I don't think I'm going to tire of this beautiful black-gold-and-red print any time soon. Such a nice thing to just throw on when you're running around for errands :)

On another note, my birthday just passed! Another year to add to my age, hurray! Hopefully I'll be able to put together more ~evolved~ outfits...we'll see how it goes. ;)

windy florals.






(Dress - Shakuhachi, cuffs - Forever 21, Sam Edelman Trina sandals)

Meep. I do acknowledge that I have neglected this blog for a full two weeks, but I am back! And alive! I've been either 1) lazy, 2) uninspired, 3) working, or 4), all of the above. I will make more effort in posting more! I promise!

Finally wore out my Shakuhachi dress I got in late May? Yes. The only bad thing that I did not have the wisdom to foresee is that...the dress is very flippy. Which means that wind or general walking around with a breeze = dress flying everywhere. Next time I will be cautious and wear other things underneath it!!

These photos were taken near the beach, where it was cloudy. Very cloudy. It made for some pretty photos, but..the cold and winds were not as fun for a summer day. Oh well, there's always next time?

overflowing closets.




The rolling rack that takes up one wall of my mother's room. It holds all my favourite pieces and displays them so that I get to see what I have! It also tells me that I have such a mish-mash of items in my closet. I actually don't wear all of those pieces on a regular basis with exception of the jackets and sweaters on the right. Something tells me that I need to go on a closet purge. Eeep.

Maybe I just have a magpie slash packrat tendency? To collect and hoard pretty things?

Are your closets well-organized? Mine (aside from that rolling rack) is a slight mess. ;)
