one of thirty.

h&m blouse and jeans; vintage coach willis bag; vintage belt, small watch and gold ring; low luv x erin wasson silver scarab ring (love this similar evil eye one); asos large watch and ankle boots.

30 days, 30 outfits starts nowwwww, with a silhouette that you've seen many times before: button down shirt, skinny jeans, ankle boots. classic caylee if there ever was such a thing. i feel very vintage and western inspired in this outfit - a perfect match for my (unstaged!) guitar in the background. this specific blouse has the perfect pajama-y feel and begs to be buttoned all the way up. the "slim" style jeans from h&m have a super flattering mid-rise. all my denim are now high-and mid-rise; i'll never go back to low rise. and the ankle boots that are pushing three years old just keep getting better with age. there is an exact mold of my foot in the cushioned sole, making them as comfortable as slippers.

i know, i know, my 30 days, 30 outfits should've happened a while ago, but since moving to chicago last june, things haven't been all rainbows and butterflies, and i have been busy sorting out my life in the midst of personal struggles. and working. i push myself so hard at work that when i get home, i crash. all i want to do is watch a movie, read, listen to music and sketch....sleep. or i get busy thrift shopping or having dinner with friends that i don't have the time. this project will force me to put all my excuses to rest. i love a good challenge.
and things are much much better for me now. optimism and faith work wonders. let go of expecatations, regrets, outcomes, and the past, and just go with it. free your mind. live. and love yourself. everything will work out just as it's supposed to :)

something i'm super stoked about is that a week of my outfits will come from austin, texas. that's right, SXSW music festival is my next adventure. music, street style, warm weather, travelling - i live for this kind of stuff. but today i'm going to enjoy the rest of my sunday off, chillin' in my apartment. full of contradictions i am - a homebody who wants to see the world.
