about six months ago i was on the hunt for a “xo” ring when i came across wirewrap on etsy and fell in love! i ordered an ampersand and an xo ring that i have been obsessing over && wearing daily ever since.

pink && polka

28th March 2013

today’s look pairs pink with polka dots as i step out in spots.

for a day off full of running errands && getting settled into my new apartment i looked to the art of the dot for inspiration. with polka dot sneakers, dotted denim and a pop of color i can feel cute while still being casual. 
if you have a cropped or “bracelet length” coat, try layering a patterned long sleeve underneath for an unexpected pattern pop.
coat: kate spade // sweater: j.crew (similar) // top: h&m // denim: forever 21 // keds: kate spade // handbag: kate spade // gloves: kate spade // arm party: idioms // sunnies: miu miu 
ps, did you notice my spotted soles? their kate spade for keds…

today we’re going geometric with purple pattern mixing!

 pattern mixing is about takings risks and dressing outside the lines! dare to pair your favorite patterned dress with a contrasting pattern belt (or try a ribbon like i used) just use complimentary colors or classic black & white to keep it under controll!
as we step into spring, don’t forget about your favorite tights! instead give them an upgrade and go for a vibrant stocking to pair with your favorite flirty skirts. 
 dress: kate spade // tights: target // belt: ribbon from target // necklace: kate spade // sunnies: miu miu // cardigan: kate spade // boots: shoegasm (my new favorite) //  ring: kate spade // arm party: sequin // kate spade idioms  // vintage // kate spade charm bracelet // j.crew // sequin

tulle town

19th March 2013

after taking a few weeks off to manage my move to nyc,
i’m finally back to blogging! && today we take a twirl in tulle.


sequins && tulle can make a girl feel like a queen,
but today i took a new take on twirl && gave it a casual twist.

when pairing two statement pieces or even mixing patterns, use black (or a neutral) to break it up and keep the look for going over the top. 
also try mixing your mediums! this look started out girlie, but the menswear inspired vest && casually chic boots give it some unexpected edge. 
shirt: j.crew // skirt: h&m (love this one from ktr, she will be back to selling soon) // belt: kate spade // tuxedo vest: halogen (love this one) // boots: shoegasm (my new favorite) // black tights //  bag: kate spade (outlet find) // ring: kate spade // arm party: sequin // kate spade idioms  // vintage // kate spade charm bracelet // j.crew // sequin

before you go…
now you can view all my past outfits in one location:
thanks again for giving me a break during my move!
&& stay tuned: apartment && nyc pictures still to come.
