warrior woman.

ray-ban sunglassesdaniel wellington watch; we who see heels.

nicole miller's latest campaign, #NMwarrior, is empowering women with one simple phrase: you don't have to wear a suit to feel strong. whether it be a simple cotton button down and relaxed denim, or a luxe silk top and deconstructed skinnies, i personally feel most confident and beautiful in a comfortable blouse and jeans. what do you wear when you want to be the best version of yourself? 

in this case, warrior (wo)man :D

another girl.

boutique onze dress; vintage coach backpack (remade); ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch; mason de morgana necklace; urban outfitters necklace; zara boots (identical). 

i feel like a whole other person wearing yellow! it's a color i've recently embraced, although in muted shades only - no brights for this girl. this look was all about the accessories - simple layered necklaces, a vintage backpack, my go-to watch and sunglasses, and ankle boots. you can shop this entire look through the links above! :)

wild belle will be at north coast fest this weekend...should i go?

past lives.

lovers and friends crochet tank; h&m skirt; vintage coach purse; ray-ban sunglasses; bing bang x UO necklace; daniel wellington watch; zara sandals. 

a full, midi-length style definitely recalls a past era, and always reminds me of when i dressed up as a poodle girl for halloween in elementary school. i fell for this skirt immediately, not only for the shape but for the rich color - it's the perfect transition piece. for now, i'm loving it with crop tops and sandals and basically anything i can only wear when it's this hot outside. random: my birthday is exactly three weeks from today!

i've had the pleasure of seeing DIIV in concert twice, and both times...mesmerizing.

silver screen.

thrifted denim jacket (similar); missguided crop top; vintage skirt (similar); vintage coach purse; ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch; zara heels.

here's what i wore on the night i co-hosted the chicago advance screening of if i stay! a casual crop top and a thrifted denim jacket that i literally throw over everything toned down the fanciness of my favorite leather skirt and heels. this is something i would wear anywhere, with just a change of shoes to match the occasion.

 the movie opens in theaters today, and i highly suggest you go see it! it's a real tear jerker, and i thoroughly enjoyed the scenes where her family provided comic relief. i do have to say though, the most memorable part of the night was sharing a tub of popcorn with chloe grace moretz in a random storage room at the theater, while we waited for her q+a session to begin. you rock, chloe!

some beautiful beat connection for you on this beautiful friday.

project social t-shirt from urban outfitters; thrifted levi's jeans (similar); vintage belt and coach backpack (similar); 
h&m hat (similar); daniel wellington watch; ray-ban sunglasses; bing bang x uo necklace; zara sandals.

the temptation to start dressing for autumn is at an all time high. this day in particular was quite chilly, and i got excited to swap my straw hat for a wool one, and to pair my $1 thrift store levi's with more transitional items, like long sleeves tops. this super soft t-shirt by project social was pulled as part of my continuing adventure as an urban outfitters #UOonyou stylist. the pairing of classics stripes and denim will always be my favorite. i do still want to get the most use out of my summer wardrobe while i can, so be prepared for more warm-weather style posts in the coming weeks :)

american muscle.

thrifted t-shirt (similar); urban outfitters skirt (similar), heels, and necklace; vintage belt and bag; ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch

wearing my new favorite find: a muscle tee, ironically emblazoned with 'american muscle'. what can i say, i love shopping in the little boy section at thrift stores, and can't pass up a good vintage graphic. navy also happens to be my favorite color! i paired it with a lace trim skirt and heels to strike the perfect balance between casual and dressy. 

today's song. 
hope you guys enjoy it, and this post!

rules of your life.

della x UO romper; urban outfitters hat; vintage backpack; ray-ban sunglasses; asos heels
just kidding. there are no rules. don your favorite hat and sunglasses for the millionth time in a row (scroll down). bare your back, despite any tanlines (aka memories of a blissful day). sneak in a few wears of a backpack you initially borrowed for just one outing (thanks amy!). hell, shoot in front of a wall that's the color of you. because you want to. here's to peak of summer and happiness.

 i i don't know why i like this so much, but i do! i was location scouting :-)
