Fashion // If you stay, I’ll stay

TOO COLD today for outdoor photos, so I had to stay inside and take a few quick photos before I headed out into the subzero temps. Winter this year has been a little moody, guys. Can’t make up its mind. This outfit is made up of stuff I forgot I had. I always try to be frugal and stay away from shopping for as long as I can hold out, so the most fun thing for me is to turn my drawers inside out and find new and exciting ways to wear things that are old and feel boring to me.

I love this faded orange skirt with this blush pink skirt—perfect for a lighweight (very cold) winter outfit! Love these romantic bell sleeves, with a little lace for good measure. Hope you like.

Fashion | Lead Me Home To Love

The first day of truly spring weather here in New York was the first week of April, when the thermostat hit 65 glorious degrees and I whipped out my light colors and left my jacket at home. This is an almost entirely Forever 21 outfit; I love these leggings so much I bought them in black and khaki and I’m contemplating stocking up. I can never have too many soft, comfortable and stylish black leggings.

My style for spring is all light colors and boho. I’m not a music festival-goer but I like to dress like one. 🙂 White, flowy sleeves, lace and loose silhouettes are all on the agenda. I love how romantic this top is.

Fashion // To Love and Win

Red and lace are my two favorite things. I love this dreamy, romantic outfit, complete with my favorite Paris purse and my new wear-with-everything booties. You’ll be seeing a lot of them on this site in the future! IMG_7553 IMG_7568 IMG_7539IMG_7577 IMG_7541IMG_7597

Fashion: Hope Doth Lead

Happy Monday! It has been a beautiful spring so far, alternating between 70 degrees and sunny, to 60s and rainy, which is to say, the perfect kind of spring. I always sort of dread when the heat builds up and burns everything away. Here are photos from a couple weeks ago when I went to my cousin’s baby shower.

Fashion: Moon River

I’m sad April is almost over. It’s my second favorite month of the year. I love the rain and the birds singing in the mornings, sigh. But I love May even more. Here are some pictures from the middle of the month. My computer’s hard drive failed a couple weeks ago, hence the lack of outfit photos. It took me a while to get my laptop back in running order and retrieve a lot of lost data. No fun!

The color of the skirt is almost Tiffany blue, so this one’s for Holly Golightly. You’re a gem.

Shopping at Chicwish: Spring Style

I’m currently stocking my closet with new spring and summer clothes, and I had to stop by Chicwish for some flirty and ultra-feminine items! I love Chicwish because they excel at lace, textures, and pastels, all things I adore. Here are some of my favorite items and the things I ordered recently:

I bought the pastel skirt and those amazing notched booties for spring. Those things were built for my feet.

fashion: Lily Bart

I love when literature and fashion make friends; for example, this blouse from Modcloth named after the main character in Edith Wharton’s The House of Mirth–the “Lily Bart Blouse.” I read The House of Mirth in high school, but I think I’m definitely due for a re-read. In the meantime, I’ll wear pretty things:
