Candy cane black

Blouse: vintage
Shorts: American Apparel
Cardigan: Zara
Shoes: Dolce Vita

I've been sick for the past few days with a cold, living off of green tea, soup and oranges, so I haven't really done any outfit posts in a while. I'm actually still sick.. when I have a cold, I become sort of apathetic towards anything, but I found this polka dot shirt as a set when I went thrifting last week and fell in love with it. It comes along with a skirt too, but I like how the shirt is on it's own. I might put the set up in the shop soon. oh and the Bonnaroo bag is from the lovely Starr Crow that I won a while ago! I seem to use it all the time these days..i love the ease of tote bags. tea with honey is in my future.

Fall Wishlist

Just some items I'm loving for fall..

Topshop Leopard Peterpan Collar Dress
 or pretty much anything with subtle leopard print..

Alexa Chung for Madewell velvet shorts and sheer polka dot top..love. and of course the leopard belt.

Anything with studs, like this F21 jacket. I feel like the prices there have gone up though! A faux leather studded jacket for $48 is not really what I'm used to seeing when I shop there..crazy.

knee high socks!

Also anything red or neutral.

Sweet summer

Romper: thrifted
Wedges: F21

This is my new favorite romper! I couldn't resist the scalloped bottoms and polka dots. so comfortable too. To give it an edge, I wore black wedges.. otherwise it's kind of over-the-top cutesy, but in a good way.

Leopard and Red

Leopard Jacket: Goodwill
Shorts: F21
Boots: Vintage
Necklace: H&M

I have a love/hate relationship with leopard print, mainly because it can have a tendency to look tacky. I was obsessed with it a few years ago, became sick of it, now I think I'm back...especially after finding this blazer type thing at Goodwill. It's the comfiest thing everr, though I think I fooled myself walking out my apartment with it since it's sill incredibly hot outside! My excuse was the rain, it just feels right with a cardigan in the summer. Don't mind my disheveled, humid rain hair. I love mixing leopard with red, for some reason the combination works well..hence my red cowboy booties I thrifted in New Orleans.

Road Trip

Beach in Key West before my camera lens fogged up, Florida lizard, Bourbon Street, old absinthe house, dirty shirley temple in an all candle-lit bar from the 1700s. Just a few shots from my road trip. I finally got back last nite..saw Key West, then headed over to New Orleans. . . loved it. It feels good to be back in the city though, as chaotic as it is. I definitely missed it.

Open road

I'm taking a road trip down to Florida for a little over a week
The shop is on hold til I get back! I'll be adding new items as well.
Two summers ago I drove all the way to Cali with my boyfriend, so I was feeling the urge again.. I can't get enough of the open road.

Designer Thrift

Blouse: See by Chloe
Skirt and shoes: Forever 21

I scored this See by Chloe blouse at a Buffalo Exchange a few days ago. I love the fringe sleeves, they have little yellow beads on them. That's my favorite part of thrifting.. I usually end up finding out of season designer clothes at a ridiculously low price, especially in the city. it's amazing. These are my new favorite shoes I bought from Forever 21. I could actually walk in them all day for once, I swear they're so comfortable!
