State of Mind

chained3 chainedFervently wishing for a warm, tropical vacation. Please take me anywhere that’s hot and humid with an abundance of yummy tropical drinks.

Wearing a few pieces I picked up in Hawaii earlier this year to further induce my dream-like state of mind.

Wishing everyone a happy weekend wherever you may be! 🙂

I wear this jacket way too often but its such an easy fallback piece that finishes off most of my outfits. And when in doubt, nothing feels better than wearing black and greys. A little gold never hurts.

Silver Lining

I just got these silver sandals and so far they pair well with everything I usually wear! They give my all black outfits a little extra push and I’m excited to try pairing it with white for a blinding effect.

Saturday Inspiration: Confezioni Crosby


Having a moment with cuffed trousers. Love them but just can’t find any that looks good on my short legs!! 😦 Don’t you just love this mellow orange hue?
The espadrilles are the perfect touch.


Chambray love! Isn’t that headband so cute?


Lovely headpiece!


Love this matchy matchy set.


It’s not summer or spring without some rompers. This light tangerine hue is adorable and love the matching straw hat!


I need my hair to grow asap so I can try this!


There is something so luxurious about navy straw hats!


The perfect summer piece to wear everywhere! And loving the little belt detail.

Falling in love with the simplicity and freshness of these clothes! These pieces are meant to be worn again and again. 🙂

Trying to shake things up and step a little toe out my comfort zone.  Pairing up prints!  I never imagined that flowers and leopard prints can go together without wildly clashing but this non-invasive denim version of leopard makes it so easy!

I’ve been having so much fun with this white vest.  It pairs so easily with everything and gives it a little edge with its moto-style.  But don’t be fooled by its cool white color!  I thought I was dying under the sun with this vest on. Who knew a little scrap of faux-leather can trap so much body heat.  At least it makes for cool style.  🙂

Great way to use an extra piece of clothing.


Haight Again

I try to go to Haight every chance I get. It’s such a fun street filled with random boutiques, smoke shops, and such fun graffiti. And of course, filled with vintage thrift stores. It’s hard to go into every store but I try to hit up as many thrift stores as I can. Usually I never really find anything but it’s such a good feeling when I do find something fun or special. I hear that the street offers some amazing food too but have not yet tried anything besides burgers and fries.
