thirty days of outfits - summer recap.








here's the recap of my thirty days, thirty outfits: summer edition! if you also count all the outfits i posted from music festivals (pitchfork, lolla) and NYFW, i'd say i did a pretty damn good job keeping up this summer. blogging is like a second full-time job, and i absolutely wouldn't have it any other way. thank you guys for being so loyal for the past 3+ years!

i've always said that this is my favorite kind of post to do, and if you like this collage, check out my first thirty days, thirty outfits recap here, one from 2010 here, and an oldie-but-goodie from 2009 here phew! so many outfits, so little time. 

oh and i have to ask...which look from the above thirty is your favorite?

summer thirty.


thrifted blouse; h&m pants; zara belt; vintage coach purse; michael kors watch; vintage rings; vintage boots.

ok ok, so summer was technically over when i wore this (yesterday), but i really love a good transitional outfit, one i can prance around in before i have to add a jacket or wear socks with my boots. it's a very "smart" look, almost office appropriate i would say, but the accessories add a touch of cool, casual, effortlessness - and in turn make it more me. 
 this is the last in my latest round of thirty days, thirty outfits. i'm not apologizing for taking exactly two months to get through all of my posts; instead, i'm proud of the time and effort i put into posting and making this blog a priority when i already have so much else going on. things are crazy and they are only going to get crazier. big changes are happening, positive strides are being made, and i have some incredible projects and events in the works. come along with me for the ride.

flowerhouse podcast.

 
(screen capture from flowerhousepodcast)

because my favorite boys over at flower house podcast always give the best shoutouts - check out the post birthday post they did for me last week (!), and one from back in april, when i first gave them a little twitter love - i thought i'd return the favor today here on my blog. i can't stress this enough: if seeking out independent music is in your area of interest (much like with thrifting, i know i could spend all day doing so), then flowerhouse podcast is your new best friend. it doesn't get much better than "the five songs you have to hear each week."
 i think sophia amoruso, the founder of nasty gal, said it best in this interview during NYFW: "the kind of feeling that some people get from cooking, and some people get from watching a fashion show, i have to admit, i get that from listening to music". 
music and fashion really do go hand-in-hand, and beautifully so. 
brandon, alex...still waiting on that postcard ;)
happy music monday!

summer twenty nine.

thrifted tank; h&m pants; vintage coach purse; michael kors watch; vintage rings; vintage boots.

printed pants almost feel fashion disaster at this point (i.e. everywhere), but i bought this disgustingly cheap pair on whim/for an emergency non-diva midday outfit change. and then i fell for them. so, yeah, ikat stems.

summer twenty eight.


vintage sweatshirt; thrifted skirt; vintage belt and rings; michael kors watch; asos heels.


 i'd like to introduce you to the $10 sweatshirt i picked up at L Train Vintage in east village during NYFW - we've already become fast friends. my favorite part about wearing this shirt was sleeping in it the night before. i always wonder what a vintage pieces' past life was like; when and where it was made, who owned it, and with this one in particular, what the logo stands for. my best guess is that it's a high school mascot, definitely making the person who wore it too cool for school.

summer twenty seven.


vintage sweater; h&m jeans and belt; vintage rings; michael kors watch; asos heels.

transitioning into autumn means unexpected pairings like fuzzy angora sweater + cuffed denim that show off a summer heel. i'm savoring these freakishly beautiful days and cool nights with the idea that, as with all aspects of life, you should enjoy it while you can because you don't know how long it will last.

east village.


forever 21 top; thrifted skirt and purse; h&m belt; michael kors watch; vintage rings and boots.
photos by natalie suarez

i had another idea for today's post, but i am thrilled about these pictures, and not sharing them today is not an option. on monday, natalie and i made plans in the east village, and i was definitely feeling this silhouette that i've been relying heavily on as of late (cropped turtleneck + skirt), my favorite boots, and a bright bag for a pop of color. i think my vision turned out beautifully, especially since i didn't plan outfits beforehand. the caylee way of packing is throwing everything you love at the moment into a giant suitcase in less than fifteen minutes.
effective and efficient but not necessarily recommended ;)






 after a long walk from the subway in the most beautiful humidity-free sunshine, we enjoyed a late brunch a charming little cafe called mudspot. a hannah holman sighting and a few outfit pictures later, we decided to run into natalie's favorite vintage shop for what were my last few minutes in the big apple. i scored a $10 sleeveless graphic sweatshirt that you'll surely see in no time, as i can't wait to wear it with....everything. it was a bittersweet farewell, but i have all these pictures as memories and the anticipation building up for the trip back in february.

i still have tons more pictures from my NYFW(eekend), be sure you come back tomorrow!

soho.


thrifted blouse; skirt c/o romwe; vintage coach purse; michael kors watchvintage rings and necklace; aldo boots.
photos by dylana suarez


i just realized that i wore no less than three black skirts during my four days in NYC. yesterday you saw the first one, and here's the second - a flippy black number (also posted wearing it here) that'll take me from summer right into fall. i'm imaging it with a giant fisherman knit and ankle boots with scrunched black socks. 

for our pictures, i suggested this brick red stoop that matched my blouse and was thrilled when dylana said the lighting was perfect, but even more so when i saw the results of her photography. aren't they dreamy? everything just seems so vibrant and alive, even though black storm clouds were actually rolling in. if i could have all of my outfit posts look like this, i would be in heaven. seriously, she has it all - beauty, brains, style, talent. nat nat does too. i've seen both of them three times in the past seven months (last NYFW and when they visited chicago!), and every time we meet there's that feeling like it hasn't been weeks since we've hung out. i'll tell you what - i can't wait until our next adventure. tomorrow i'll have a post with all of the other pics from this lovely saturday. see you then!
