Coppertone

American Apparel t-shirt romper / Sam Edelman 'Jerome' oxford in gold / rings: Asos, etc / wide brimmed fedora: my shop / leather satchel: thrifted

Lots of things have changed since the early days of my blogging career back in 2011. Fashion blogging itself has changed; one thing I've never been able to move on from is the search for a perfect pair of metallic, gold oxfords. Ever since seeing these in many a post from one of my favorite bloggers, Karen of Where Did U Get That, waaay back in '11, I've been keeping a keen eye out for them whilst online shopping and on the rare occasion that I actually am out to shop. Three years of "SOLD OUT"s and "out of stock"s later, I find them sitting there on a shelf at a local Marshall's. I'm not ashamed to say that I actually bolted toward them, even in spite of the side eye I caught. I mean, different styles always caught my eye, but this wingtip style by Sam Edelman was in fact the specific style I was in search of.

Posh Spice




Spent the day in Boston with my father on Monday. He's been working tirelessly over the past few years toward becoming a lawyer and on Monday he was sworn in at Faneuil Hall! It's crazy how working toward something feels endless until you realize you've reached it.

Tell me about your lives lately!

Nifty Thrifting

white crop top, white filligree cuff, nude d'orsay flats: Forever 21 / high waisted polka dot pants: thrifted / wide brimmed fedora: coming soon to SHOP COUTURING

It was one of those thrifting days where you find something you probably have no use for and definitely don't need, but there you are at the checkout counter with it anyway. In this instance, the item in question is a floor length, chunky maxi cardigan. Now, granted, it's only so supremely oversized because it's a whole four sizes up from my normal size...but good things come to those who don't know when to quit. (That's how that goes, right?)
