Denim Daze

For the past 5 years, I’ve (unsuccessfully) scoured vintage shops high and low in search of the perfect denim jacket. Despite finding pieces that I liked, it was beginning to seem impossible to find a flattering fit for my petite frame. And when I did stumble upon one in my size, it was usually bedazzled or decked out in teddy bear patches with the word “grandma” embroidered on the breast pocket.

Recently, however, I caught a glimpse of this Levi’s beauty while browsing racks at a vintage festival. I immediately fell in love with its rich dark blue wash, and when I tried it on, it fit like a glove. A true match made in heaven. 💕 Between this jacket and my new hair, I’ve never felt more ready for fall style.Necklace: Kris Nations Earrings: Karen London Sunnies: Highway Robbery Vintage Lips: ColourPop “Beeper”

Everything Was Green

When I remember my grandmother, several things come to mind. First and foremost: her passion for charity. But I’ll also never forget her love of fashion, music, and the color green.

When I opened my latest Rocksbox set, I immediately fell in love with these House of Harlow 1960 “Sunburst” studs because they felt classic and memorable- just like her. I decided to style them with the Jenny Bird “Halo” pendant for my own fresh take on a little green dress.

Do you connect with any particular colors?

REFLECTIONS

Now that I’m in my twenties, I’ve discovered that some of my favorite things about myself were some of my biggest insecurities as a child. Since losing three of my closest family members, I’ve found comfort in the realization that I am an accumulation of their traits. My reflection shows so many pieces of my loved ones, and I know without a doubt that this is how I was destined to look. stripes and hohThat’s why I love adorning myself in delicate gold jewelry. It’s truly timeless, and it never distracts from the girl in the mirror.

Tales of a Summer Fairy Princess

IMG_1243 copyAs a kid, I spent many summer nights twirling in the yard while wearing my favorite colorful sundresses. Sometimes, I imagined I was a fairy princess as I leaped after lightning bugs and tip-toed through the cold grass, dirtying my pale feet without a care in the world until my mother called me inside.

High Tides, Good Vibes

Processed with VSCO with m5 presetSalty hair and sun-kissed skin: the best accessories for sand colored clothing. There is something so pure about slipping into a flowing top and watching the ocean from afar. I feel humbled, inspired, and calmed by the subtle roar of waves crashing in the distance. My inner Pisces is at peace as I soak up this simple view of the world. Continue reading “High Tides, Good Vibes”

Sweet Simplicity

10It’s pretty obvious that I love having time to put together a nice outfit, but lately, I’ve been feeling refreshingly low maintenance. From bed head hair to barely there makeup, getting ready in a pinch has never been so easy. One of my go-to formulas for creating a casual summer look involves teaming a sleek tank with a pair of high-waisted denim shorts and a splash of accessories. The possibilities are endless, but the outcome remains the same: an effortless getup for those chill June/July days. Continue reading “Sweet Simplicity”
