stay open.

thrift sweater; vintage levi's 501s (similar here and here); zara bag; 
h&m belt (similar here), sunglasses (similar here), beanie (similar here), and boots.

i'm a denim girl at heart, wearing a pair of skinnies almost every single day (proof proof proof), but i never thought i'd be into the usually-unflattering boyfriend style. the other day while thrifting, i came across these vintage 501s. i tried them on for size and really love the way they hang off my body - they give off such a cool vibe. my original plan to cut them into shorts has been tossed aside to say the least. stay open to trying things you might have at one time overlooked - it may just become your new favorite :)

baby making music below.
so beautiful it hurts.

this is the beginning.

vintage blazer; thrift t-shirt (similar here); h&m jeans (similar here), boots, hat and belt; vintage dooney & burke purse; michael kors watch.

my latest finds - an amazing exactly-what-i've-been-looking-for-forever vintage navy wool blazer (kept the shoulder pads in this one!) and the coolest little men's graphic muscle tee that i'll be wearing with floral skirts come summertime. it's crazy to think how it's already spring. also new in are the hat and boots - they prove i can count on h&m for an inexpensive accessory thrill. one thing i've always loved about my style is that it can go almost anywhere, whether it be a casual work environment, thrift store shopping, dinner at a new restaurant, a chill hang out at home, or even an inpromptu concert.


"get on the buses, learn numbers and names
your eyes are the camera, your heart is the frame.
hum aa new song as you walk down the streets,
soon they'll be full with friends and memories."

i saw BOY live and as expected, they were charming and raw and insanely beautiful. this song reminds me so much of when i first moved here to chicago. i'm about to embark on a few new adventures of my own in this beautiful city. don't forget this, no matter where you are or what has happened in life - this is beginning of anything you want.

till our hearts contempt.

romwe coat; h&m blouse; madewell jeans; forever 21 hat; vintage belt;
vintage dooney purse; michael kors watch; aldo boots

classic shapes, classic style. re-wearing pieces is good for the environment and excellent for the wallet. hey, i'd rather save my money to give to others, for traveling, or even more immediate things like dinner with a friend, than spend it on what i'm wearing to said dinner.


i can't stop with all the amazing new music. it just keeps coming. 
ducktails and especially this song "letter of intent" on constant repeat for days.

careless.

romwe coat; vintage sweatshirt (i want this similar top so badly); h&m skirt and beanie (identical beanie here!); 
vintage dooney bag; target tights; michael kors watch; aldo boots. 

careless in a way where nothing here really matches, but everything goes together quite nicely. and i have a story behind it - i had worn each of these pieces separately in the days before this, and they were all sort of laying in a pile on my bed in this aesthetically pleasing manner. the easiest outfit i've ever not meant to wear? i suggest you try this. it was also fun to dress pretty as the best kind of snow fell in soft little crumbles. 

coat last worn here on a day when i could bare some leg skin; the hat you can see in one of my favorite outfit posts; my vintage sweatshirt is always peeking out from behind some sort of outerwear; & the skirt, last seen at NYFW and hanging out my suarez sisterzzz.


beach fossils have never sounded better.
