Fashion // I hear the birds on the summer breeze

This is an outfit from about a week ago when I went to brunch with my family. The skirt’s from Chicwish. I really love the lining on the inside and the detail on the waist but it wrinkles so easily. I tried to put a braid in my hair and make it a bit more interesting. Not sure it worked! Happy Monday!

Fashion // Love Can't Wear Out

Happy July! Here’s a bit of a romantic outfit…The quote is from Gone With the Wind, which I’ve finished tonight to a chorus of sobbing. Stay tuned for more on that tomorrow.

Road Trip Style

After much deliberation, I am happy to announce that my friends and I will be going to Portland, Maine in July. This was a far cry from my initial thought of going South, but after researching Maine, I’m so excited for lobster rolls, pre-Civil War museums, lighthouses, and lots of beach. I’m lucky to be going on vacation with friends with diverse tastes because if it were up to me, I’d just eat lobster, read books, and prowl museums all day, but we’re planning hikes, tours, kayaking, arcades, long days at the beach, and many, many lobster rolls. I can’t wait!

Here are some items on my road trip shopping list:

I’ve been coveting these Shoe Cult booties for a while now, and lucky for me, they’re on sale! It was fate. I am gravitating toward light colors and floaty dresses and tops, florals and stripes and nautical-themed wear! I also still want to find a good high-waisted bikini. Anyone have any suggestions? I think Modcloth is a good place to start, but they always seem to be just out of my price range, sigh.

Fashion: Counting the Cats

I bought this skirt from a shop in Camden Market, London and decided to wear it with my new chain boots from Chicwish! I love them; they’re so comfortable and versatile. I love booties for spring. 1c 2c 3c 4c 5c 6v

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:

My Christmas Lit & Fashion Haul

As you can probably expect, I got plenty of clothes, shoes, jewelry, and books for Christmas. Not too shabby:

I love the print on this skater skirt, and the slight steampunk vibe of the statement necklace.

Gilmore Girls on DVD, and some great books I’ve been salivating for: The Lowland, The Valkyries, The Alchemist, Neverwhere, Bellman & Black, and The Moonstone. January will be a month filled with great reads, so stay tuned!
