i can't pretend.


urban outfitters cardigan and bag; thrift sweater; vintage skirt (similar); h&m hat (identical) and knee highs (similar); ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch; gorjana ringsallsaints loafers. 

the pictures don't lie - these are definitely from a couple of months back, when autumn was in full effect. i miss what feels like was only two true weeks of my favorite season, where you can justify both layers and bare skin while gawking at the beautiful foliage. urban outfitters asked me to style a couple of sweaters in conjunction with their fall campaign, and i chose to do things a little differently - i layered a sweater over a sweater! it actually works quite well, when one is a much lighter weight than the other. i paired them with a vintage skirt that i can't get enough of no matter what season it is, and an accessory i have never tried before: knee highs.

one of the best live shows i have ever been to was put on by these boys. 
i didn't stop dancing or smiling from start to finish!

archie, marry me.


coat from lulu's; h&m faux fur scarf; black swan dress; target polka dot tights; vintage bag; 
daniel wellington watch; gorjana rings; vagabond ankle boots from urban outfitters

i got super fancy for christmas eve! it's so fun every once in a while, especially when the occasion arises, because it's not something i do on a regular basis. i used little touches like the faux fur scarf and polka dot tights to add texture and print to my look. 

i know it's slightly late, but i hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

on the regular.


tobi sweater; h&m chambray button down shirt; BDG jeans
vintage bag; daniel wellington watch; gorjana rings; dolce vita boots. 

me, on the regular: big sweater, high rise jeans, ankle boots! you just can't mess with a no fail combination that not only always looks good, but does a nice job of hiding the fact that you might happen to eat five tacos in one sitting for your next meal.


i sing/attempt to rap this song extra loud while driving in my car. 
pitchfork was on point with their best new track choice!

i met you.

thrifted jacket; h&m turtleneck; forever 21 skirt; vintage bag; ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch; dolce vita boots.

i almost turned it down, so let's just say i wouldn't have this amazing shearling collar denim jacket if it weren't for some much appreciated moral support during a thrifting adventure. everyone always asks me where i find such good pieces, and my answer is i thrift everywhere from the city to the burbs, but my absolute favorite place is village discount in roscoe village!

and, as always, a perfect song to enjoy below.

mumurs.

vintage jacket; thrifted t-shirt; forever 21 skirt; vintage backpack; ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellingto watch; cat footwear boots c/o amp3 pr.

finally catching up on the last of a few older posts. i have a strange feeling that if i don't post them all now, i never will, so be prepared for a lot of new content all at once! :) this vintage suede jacket is one of my favorite pieces to style, and i'll never tire of black and stripes together. i didn't realize what an eyesore the tie on the jacket is when it hangs down like this - i've since removed it. and i call this post 'mumurs' because my new cat footwear boots make basically no sound when i walk, unlike all the other heeled boots in my wardrobe. quietly stomping through the streets of chicago in these cuties!

adore pretty much everything this band puts out.

you can have it all.

chaser kimono; vintage velvet dress; vintage bag; ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch; report boots

you can have it all, if you change your mindset :) here, i'm flashing back to the beginning of october and imagining an eternal autumn; wishing for those last few warm days again. it may be cold as hell, but i'm making plans, having fun, and loving every second. each day brings something new to be excited and happy for, no matter what season it is, and that's how i always live my life. i can't wait to dress up and wear this vintage velvet dress to see a ballet this holiday season!

time after time.


h&m coat, beanie, and (sort of hidden) denim vest; sugarlips dress; vintage bag; daniel wellington watch; dolce vita boots (similar here).

instead of my usual dslr, i wanted to try and test out something new...these were shot on my iPhone! ok, who am i kidding, the battery in my camera actually died the second before taking these, so it was my only option. but it's nice to know i don't always have to lug a lot of equipment around to get a great shot :) everything worn here is a over a year old, except for the coat. i've been looking for a longer style, and this one is perfect! i love a silhouette like this where the coat is just a tad longer than the dress.

 
my favorite she & him songs are the ones that prominently feature m. ward. see the new release above.

on the fence.

thrift plaid cardigan and denim top; sara high rise coated jeans; vintage bag; h&m headpiece; 
ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch; gorjana rings; forever 21 loafers. 

things i definitely wasn't on the fence about: scooping up this perfect little bag and plaid cardigan from a recent thrift trip. i have been pairing the bag with everything, and here, the greens just compliment each other so well. go thrifting you guys - you'll be so happy!

 
i love the old milo greene so dearly, but i also love this new milo greene! 
imagine both sounds together in their live performance...
