Fashion // I sing the body electric

Happy May! I don’t know about where you all live, but here, it’s been raining since Sunday, and won’t stop until Monday. Not a great way to start May, but hey—gotta make the most of it.

Here’s an outfit I’ve been repeating A LOT lately. I tend to do that: find a combo I love, and then exhaust it. The top is actually a dress from Shein, one of those sites that got into trouble recently for scams—and while this “dress” is well made and what I ordered, it is also waaaay too short to be a dress. Here it is as a tunic-type top, paired with burgundy leggings. Hope you like!

Fashion // Dahlia

Hmmm, what to wear when it’s 36 degrees in April? On this day, I had a cute outfit planned but alas, it had snowed and hailed overnight and even though the day was beautiful, it was windy and freezing temps.

Instead, I styled this half spring/half winter outfit that kept me warm and kept me from feeling like I was still plunged into winter. And since I’m not buying anything right now, these are all re-styled pieces from the last year!

My life has been pretty stressful lately, with long work hours and various responsibilites that have been stretching me thin. As always, styling outfits and indulging this passion is an outlet. I get to share that passion here, and I’m grateful for that! Hope you like this. Let me know in the comments what you wear during unseasonably cold days in spring!

Fashion // Play my music, watch you leave

This is my excited-for-spring, Easter outfit. The trees are BLOOMING in full force, and when spring comes around I can’t help but get giddy for all the clothes I shall wear. I like how this outfit is a mix of dark, winter pieces and lighter, airy spring pieces. I also love the color combination of burgundy and this deep, rosy coral. Finding this color combo made me v. happy. Hope you like it!

Fashion // Jazz singer

Blacks and grays for today’s outfit, and a bit of a departure from my usual color-infused looks. I love these H&M tights for their open-weave knit pattern that reminds me of art deco. And this lined faux-fur vest is the perfect transition piece for when it’s too cold sans jacket! I bought the shoes in 2012, when I visited Italy the last time. My aunt helped me pick them out. 🙂 I love oxford/brogue-type shoes, and these are just too cute with the tassel!

I hope you like!

Fashion // Born to be free

Spring is approaching! Thought I’d get into the spirit of things and enjoy the warming weather with this bright, floral dress. Since it’s also (sometimes) warm enough to go without full stockings, I wore this with some knee highs, and my favorite Oxford booties. I love the transitions between seasons.

Spring Style | Neutrals

This seasons I’m really gravitating toward peach, white, nude, taupe, and everything else with only a little smidgen of color, which is a huge departure from my usual jewel-toned closet. I’m also loving these loose yet structured pieces and these mule-ish shoes, which I used to hate. So, hey! Evolution—of style. 😉

Here’s what’s on my spring shopping list, culled from Choies, Boohoo and Forever 21. Links on my Polyvore.

What are you into this spring?

Fashion: Ecstatic Motion

Fun with kimonos. Why are these things called kimonos anyway, when they really don’t bear any resemblance to actual kimonos? Anyway, this floral one from Forever 21 is possibly my most-worn new item this season. I’ve found ways to incorporate it into half my outfits since January. Here’s an outfit I wore out with some friends a few weeks ago. I had fun spinning 🙂
