perfect blue.

look 1: bb dakota dress; vintage coach bag; urban outfitters necklace; michael kors watch; dolce vita boots.
look 2: h&m blouse; minkpink vest; levi's shorts; ray-ban wayfarers; vintage coach bag; michael kors watch; dolce vita boots. 

i've partnered with my friends over at zappos to showcase a few styles necessary in my spring wardrobe. it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know my tried-and-true formulas for dressing. key pieces seen here: a bb dakota dress, a minkpink vest, and levi's cutoffs. i'll forever take my neutrals with a side of blue, please.

i always fall back on these guys. music like this makes me so excited for things like driving with the windows down. so soon....

street joy.

choies trench coat; truly madly deeply t-shirt; BDG twig high-rise jeans; ray-ban clubmasters
wink and winn bag; vintage belt; michael kors watch; dolce vita boots.

on this perfectly sunny day, i dug out my only trench coat and a split-hem tee that let the warm breeze tickle my side, 
and was finally able to declare that winter is o.v.e.r. 

it's so fun to find an old-ish song you should've/would've loved a while back, 
one that is just now brand new.

forever 21 varsity jacket (similar here); zara graphic sweatshirt (similar here and here); BDG high rise cigarette ankle grazer jeans; 
target hat (similar here); vintage belt; vintage coach bag (new version here); michael kors watch; h&m socks; dolce vita boots.

when i acquire something new, i tend to want to tear the tags off and wear it right away. for a casual day off, it ended up being the perfect pairing of a faux leather varsity jacket and a graphic sweatshirt (a combination i already had in mind). you're going to see these on the blog a lot, so much so that i apologize ahead of time, as the plan is to mix them with nearly every top and bottom in my wardrobe. speaking of bottoms, you can see where my loyalty lies, as 90% of my jeans are BDG. also, until the snow has melted and it's finally warm enough to wear flats or sandals, my feet will remain in winter mode, aka my go-to wool socks shown off with a cuffed hem. happy saturday!

for you.

let me show you love.

h&m faux fur coat and turtleneck; romwe skirt; target hat; vintage belt; SFK camera strap; michael kors watch; dolce vita boots.

my camera has become an accessory itself, and is always a permanent fixture on my shoulder, but it's never been more fun to carry it around now that i've adorned it with this sfk chain camera strap (courtesy of NYLON shop!). my favorite color scheme will always be neutrals paired with stripes, the perfect cognac brown, and gold hardware.

cut copy always makes me want to go out for a night of dancing in boys town, 
and always reminds me of my first pitchfork music festival.

vintage coat, denim jacket (similar here), and belt (similar here); thrifted skirt; addison ny cropped sweater; h&m beanie; nasty gal scarf; 
target tights; wink and winn bag; la mer watch; ettika braceletkaren london caradona ringhunter original tour welly.

in the spirit of what i thought would be one of our last snowstorms (before yesterday happened!), i give you an outfit from a couple of weeks ago, and what was my first attempt at shooting in the middle of said snowstorm. i will say, despite my longing for warmer temperatures, i'm going to miss getting to wear my beloved layers. here, a couple of really good outerwear finds, one on top of the other, and tights under the skirt i lived in all last summer. my new bag is from wink and winn - it comes with pouches that snap on or off for multiple combinations, with all the colors chosen by you in the design process! this was a black leather/black suede day.

delorean was one of the first bands i got into as my music tastes shifted years ago. so much love for these guys.

merci beaucoup.

cheap monday coat (super old!); merci beaucoup t-shirt c/o signorelli; topshop jeans; target hat; 
vintage coach bag (new version here); vintage belt (similar here); michael kors watch; karen london caradona ringdolce vita ankle boots.

literally the softest, you-would-think-it's-a-vintage tee - signorelli's signature, and they give a portion of every sale to charity. double win. this is just the beginning of refreshing my wardrobe with some new spring graphics. paired with one of my oldest and most loved coats (i will never get rid of it!), "mom" jeans i got on sale for $10, and what could be my favorite accessories - i was one happy gal this day. 

today's post is more aptly named after my outfit than this featured song, 
but as always, i'm more than excited to share with you style & music.

kiss me.

h&amp faux fur coat, plaid scarf (identical here), and beanie; BDG high rise jeans
vintage coach bag (new version here); la mer watch; ettika bracelet; dolce vita ankle boots.

i can't tell you how many times i've worn this exact combination all season long. adding a few new things into the mix - a soft scarf in my second favorite print (stripes are #1!); an oversized, vintage-style la mer watch; a perfectly delicate beaded ettika bracelet; and ankle boots in the chocolate brown color of my dreams. accessories to spice up the monotony and beat these long winter blues.

i have officially fallen head over heels for a song. right in time for valentine's day.
