completely golden.

urban outfitters sweater; thrift skirt (similar); vintage belt and bag (similar); ray-ban sunglasses; gorjana necklace and rings; daniel wellington watch; nine west sandals.

here i am again in my favorite hue as of late! this golden color goes so well with a light wash denim. you can't really tell here, but the sweater is cropped, which makes it even more perfect for pairing with everything high-waisted (minus adding any bulk). these photos summarize every accessory in an arsenal i can now say is truly complete. they're pieces that each have so much style on their own, and together, complete all of my looks.

whether i'm driving, cleaning, editing photos, or enjoying company over at my apartment, lower dens is my go-to for the perfect background music. they always put me in this easygoing, creative, zen-like state.

carry me.

h&m dress and hat; ray-ban sunglasses; vintage bag; daniel wellington watch; zara boots.

i got carried away in an afternoon, one that ended with shooting my simple dress-and-boots combo at the tracks, skyline in full view.

so addicting.

can't do without you.

a&c jeans; thrift button down; vintage denim jacket (similar); vintage coach bag (similar); 
ray-ban sunglasses; daniel wellington watch; gorjana necklace and rings; nine west sandals

a great pair of black jeans is something i keep in constant rotation, and actually probably wear more than twice a week in the cooler months. new denim brand a&c hits all the right marks with their take on the classic skinny. they're cropped just where i like them at the ankle, and my favorite part is how good they make your butt look. now excuse me while i go soak up this perfect weather that allows for outerwear + open-toed shoes to be paired together - it won't last much longer!

can't do without you.

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 :-)
