one last time.


h&m divided black stripe blouse; nasty gal pony hair leopard print belt; vintage levi's shorts; ray-ban sunglasses; fashionology.nl cross necklace, beaded bracelets, and cross ring; marc by marc jacobs pyramid stud bracelet; forever 21 watch; asos bag.
this will be my last summer-ish look, because autumn has finally hit indiana!
it's actually been getting really cold at night the past few days, and i couldn't be happier to finally break out my sweaters & jackets.
i remember tweeting about being excited to wear this blouse + belt (gotta love stripes and leopard print together), but i forgot to post this pic i took of them, so here you go!
the next outfit of mine you see will contain knitwear, that's for sure :)

casual weekends.



h&m jacket and ankle boots; secondhand metallica tee; vintage levi's shorts; asos bag; forever 21 watch; fashionology.nl beaded bracelets, hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; low luv x erin wasson tribal cuff and scarab ring.

this is what i throw on to just bum around, running errands and such. when i'm at home i'll wear comfier black leggings instead of the shorts.
also, got these boots in chicago (along with an identical black pair). they are just what i've been looking for. so perfect!

fashion week street style, part I.

this blog is called "if you seek style", and here you go, some of my favorite street style shots thus far from around the globe.
i look foward to the pictures taken outside of the fashion shows more than what we see on the runways each season.
these ladies are chic x 10.

chi-town.


h&m faux leather shearling jacket and skinny jeans; silence & noise sheer blouse; nasty gal pony hair leopard print belt; low luv x erin wasson tribal cuff via shopbop and scarab ring via tobi; fashionology.nl beaded bracelets, hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; forever 21 watch; asos bag and ankle boots.

here's what i wore to chicago last saturday, where i went as part of my birthday present =)
my boyfriend and i spent eight hours round trip on the road, and around eight hours shopping, so it was definitely a whirlwind trip! i didn't take but maybe ten pictures because it has just rained before we arrived and the weather was still crappy. we hit up my favorite high street shops, a pizza joint, and a few other places downtown before driving a little further north west for my first visit to an IKEA(!). i know it's not the highest quality furniture, but it sure is simple, inexpensive, and swedish, three things i adore :)

i cannot take full credit for this outfit, as it was inspired by the lovely katherine power from whowhatwear.com. she twitpic-ed this photo about two months ago, and i instantly fell in love with her perfect look. i think i have said this many times before, but it's so cool when you see an amazing outfit, and you realize that you have everything in your closet needed to recreate it. i knew i'd wear it once i finally got a shearling jacket, and my trip to chicago seemed like the perfect opportunity!


my favorite skyscraper in chicago. i think it's both commercial and residential units...how freaking amazing would it be to live at the top of this thing?! also demonstrated in this photo: new and old architecture, sitting beautifully side by side - another reason why i can't get enough of chicago.

fall's key outerwear.


the camel coat (topshop) and the faux leather shearling jacket (h&m).
i feel ready to conquer fall with just these two pieces.

i wore the leather jacket on a quick trip up to chicago this past saturday, so pics of that outfit will be up tomorrow or wednesday!

on a side note - i don’t buy things because they are trendy (and these two definitely are right now), but i will buy trendy things when they work with me and my tastes, and when they will fit seamlessly within my existing wardrobe. i think this is how you guys can streamline your shopping process too! i can see myself wearing these over and over again with the clothing i already own, and thinking like this before purchasing an item makes updating my closet so much easier, and less expensive too :)

NYFW picks.

i'm not the best at reviewing collections during fashion week(s), and i often get behind on viewing them, but here are my favorites from NYFW.

helmut lang is always ALWAYS one of my favorites, and this year,
they went light + fresh for spring. loves!

cushnie et ochs, a perfect mix of edgy and feminine. they are still sort of under the radar as of now, but if they keep coming out with collections like this (and this), then it won't stay that way for long.

michael kors sent some really great minimal looks down the runway! if these sparkly pants on freja were actually maxi skirt, i'd want to be wearing that entire outfit right now.
all pics in this post via style.com; collages by me
jeremy laing. ummm maxi dress heaven.


what were your favorites?
and who else can't wait to see the london/milan/paris shows?!

here's what i wore out to dinner with my boyfriend & some friends on the night of my birthday.

i'm feeling the love ;)

birthday outfit.





h&m blouse and jeans; fashionology.nl cross necklace, beaded bracelets, hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; low luv x erin wasson scarab ring and cuff; forever 21 watch; asos bag; steve madden booties.



hey hey, it's my birthday today!!!
i'm the big 2-4, haha.
an uneventful age, but i have the day off and i'm sure gonna enjoy it.

also....i've had this blouse since may, but haven't worn it since silk is not the best material in hot and sticky weather. it's finally cooling down, so i'm now wearing it once a week (at least, it's that perfect). and these jeans will be permanently on my ass, thanks to their ahhhhmazing wash and fit.

you guys HAVE to follow this tumblr blog: allaboutthebadkids.
the guy behind it is a 19-year-old photographer in NYC, and this week he's standing outside all of the shows and taking pics of models. if there's one thing i love about NYFW, it's model-off-duty shots, and these are just ahhhmazing!
can't wait to see more (i know you can't either).
