bell flowers.

(Silk embroidered top - Opening Ceremony, leather runner shorts - Topshop, boots - Steve Madden)

Some of the newest additions to my closet that I haven't had a chance to photograph yet. I purchased the shorts a month ago after spotting it on the Topshop website. After realizing that I had always wanted a pair of leather shorts (haha), I decided to go for it. They have a elasticated waist and are extremely comfortable to wear, which usually means that it was a great decision to purchase it.

This top! If I could wax poetic about it, I would. I spotted it on Need Supply for almost 1/3rd of the original price and had to snap it right up. The embroidery actually reminds me of the Phillip Lim pieces I recently mentioned (and will probably continue to mention, seeing as how I've brought it up again already) and has a lovely grey sheen to it. I'm so very glad that I decided to take the plunge and purchase it! I did also purchase another GORGEOUS top but unfortunately returned it as I didn't quite like the fit...I'm still telling myself that it was a good decision, because even clothes that fit slightly off don't get worn as much.

Okay, back to work! I just had to gush about today's outfit and now I must get back to doing studious things like I should be doing. Happy Friday! :)

P.S. That picture of me leaning awkwardly? I thought it was funny and now you can laugh at it, too. You're welcome!

3.1 phillip lim Spring 2014 + zara inspirations

(Pictures courtesy of and Zara)

When I first looked at Phillip Lim's S/S 2014 collection, I gave a little internal scream. The geode-inspired pieces are quirky and delicate in just the right way. Of course, whenever I look at collections and start to drool over them, I realize that most of the pieces are way out of my price range. Are you like me and want to wear colorful rocks on your body? Thankfully, Zara came through with the perfect alternative to your geode-haunted sartorial dreams. The next best thing to actually wearing geodes, which can head you towards rocky (hahahaha) fashion territory.

You can purchase the Zara sweatshirt here!
