I think I finally found the perfect long sleeve stripe shirt.  The search is over.  This one is perfectly thin and slouchy so I don’t feel constricted but also makes me feel waif-like.  What more can I ask for?

summer wedding

thomaswedding thomaswedding1 thomaswedding22 thomaswedding7 thomaswedding3 thomaswedding10 thomaswedding11 thomaswedding8 thomaswedding6 thomaswedding12thomaswedding17 thomaswedding20Gorgeous summer wedding!  I’ve never been to a wedding where the ceremony AND reception were held outdoors, and it did not disappoint.  The outdoor reception was so romantic and lovely.  I spent most of the night guzzling wine and cheering for the newlywed couple.  Almost to the point of pestering the bride to take an annoying amount of photos with me.  Blaming the wine for this!  I did manage to get a lot of great shots of and with them so I am still very pleased with myself. 😛

Now onto the outfit.  It’s fast becoming a habit of mine to not buy dresses because they’re so difficult to incorporate into multiple different outfits.  Which is why I decided to go with separates.  This Reformation skirt that I recently purchased seemed to be the perfect bottom piece because it’s so lightweight and that slit gives me a lot of leg room to dance my heart out on the floor while looking a bit sexier.  I paired it with a crop top that was hiding out in my closet and also some heels that would not match with anything I own.  I love it when you’re about to give up on something and it somehow finds it way to being useful again!

think pink

It’s amazing how a good dose of pink can liven up an outfit.  Wearing the same Cos shirt that finds its way on my body every day and some pink shorts that I picked up at Zara.  I also added some silver heels to give the outfit a little extra specialness.  They’re such a great alternative to nude or black sandals!

Lately, I’ve been living in this Cos shirt and pairing it with denim shorts everyday.  Even though it’s blazing hot out, I decided to chance the heat and went back to my preferred leather and boots because I just got so sick of wearing the denim shorts.  It was a glorious change.  At least until I had some mimosas and realized that wearing leather anything during the summer while drinking might never be a good idea.  Unless you love being covered in sweat.

Found the cutest little graphic tee while shopping at The Grove.  This is just perfect to throw over shorts all summer long!  The raw hems and slightly shredded neck line is a plus.  I can’t wait to make it look more badass by throwing on a leather jacket over it come fall.

a day in tokyo

It’s been a few weeks since I got back from Tokyo and Seoul, and I’m just now sorting through all my pictures.  I’ve gotten just as lazy as my dear Howl.  In my defense, I have been snuggling with her the past few weeks to make up for the lack of time spent with her while abroad. *big smile*

Needless to say, I had an amazing time in Tokyo and these are just a glimpse of a day I spent there walking around in Ginza, Tsukiji, and Akasaka-mitsuke.  I spent the whole day walking around in Birkenstocks and omg yes they are so darn comfortable.  The rumors are true and everyone should go grab a pair if they are going to travel and spend days walking, walking, walking.

Random thing I noticed while I was in Tokyo:  there are so many cute stray cats around!  Maybe this is how they came up with the cat cafe idea.
