Cheetahs & Rhinestones: Oh MY!

Here's to hoping the leopard print and rhinestones will cure my Monday Blues! This is the first week of Mr being back at school, which means it's the first week of a long 9 month road that includes letters, skype, and hours of phone conversations. You see, Mr is back in Idaho being all professor like and finishing up his Masters. This girl?! She's in Portland writing for all of you! So cheer up with me and enjoy this dress/ blouse/ thingy form H&M that is way too short for me and will never make it out in public again ;) 


Sequin Editorial by Nasty Gal


Nasty Gal is an online boutique that features fashionable clothes for the bad ass rocker in every woman. And this editorial blew me away- I love everything about the sequins. That sequin maxi skirt? So flattering and stunning, I'd even get married in it. (Seriously considering it and just realized they've already SOLD OUT) ugh.... of course. Regardless, sequins!!! Will they ever go out of style?!




This week I am out of town helping Mr. settle back into life as a teaching professor and Masters student. We decided to take a road trip out to the school allowing more hang out time before we begin year two of long distance (booo)! In this series I have styled my favorite SS dress, my birthday present two years ago (as seen on Anna Kendrick in the Twilight wedding) with my favorite blazer from our trip to New York this past Spring. This blazer is probably my favorite souvenir yet.


My Closet | School Yard Floral OOTD

The gorgeous wedges can be found here!

I love this floral top, it's comfortable, breathes well, and goes with any bottom you pair with it. It's understated and looks clean with such a bold print.

 Bag: thrifted. Jeans: Forever21 (old). Wayfarers: Betsey Johnson. Top: HM.

Sunset Sparkle

Complete with a rhinestone cuff and clutch, I loved this casual look I wore to a friend Birthday BBQ. It was going to be a cooler evening as the sun went down so I decided to put the cut offs away and throw on some skinny jeans. I'm still trying out these leopard booties and I'm totally in shoe love!!


Canadian Tuxedo | Chambray Edition

On the occasion where I simply do not want to wear a skirt to work (like on days where hiding behind big shades and baggy sweaters are a dream from fashion heaven) I like to wear the trouser jean. The trouser I chose definitely has more of a 70's flare to it but works perfectly with a fitted top and a pair of suede wedges. With that said- My third and final outfit of the Chambray series- the Canadian Tuxedo!
Band photo much?
