hat trick.

forever 21 hat; thrifted t-shirt (similar here); madewell jeans; vintage belt (similar here); zara bag; 
ray-ban sunglasses (also here); michael kors watch;choies shoes.

i'm always using this hat - and my other little brown guy!- as a cure for lazy days, bad hair days, and now, as makeshift umbrella during the (seemingly) perpetual april rain. purchased already broken in, this thrift find is the softest tee i have ever owned; it's another one of those that you go to bed in and wear again the next day with little to no effort. just like this jacket, the almost invisible word "army" printed across the front pays tribute to my little brother who is serving in afghanistan. rolled cuffs style the look on both ends, taking my t-shirt out of pajama territory and showing off my pointy flats. i'm so excited to share some spring outfits in the coming weeks!
 
happy wednesday, love me. and empress of :)

one day of sun.

vera balyura photographed at coachella 2013 for vogue.com

easily wins my vote for best dressed at coachella. a feast for the eyes; the lace dress and helmut lang seahorse blazer (seahorses!!) working harmoniously together to create the most aesthetically appealing mix. what i love even more is how this one picture has led me to a new style muse to fawn over: jewelry designer vera balyura. here's more proof.

this is a style blog, but music is its heart and soul. for the past four months, every post has featured a song, with lyrics from that song as the post's title. today, of course, a coachella artist. to have heard them live under the desert sun...

air conditioning.

air conditioning.

air conditioning. by ifyouseekstyle
topshop dress (similar here); isabel marant shorts; uniqlo tee; floral bandeau (similar here); jenni kayne flats; scotch & soda shorts; proenza schouler bag; wrangler skirt (similar here); zara bag; isabel marant jacket.

how beautiful are these pieces? perfectly matched with simple t-shirts or denim, i'm ready to cool off this spring in prints, prints and more prints. since most of these are sold out or super pricey, do like me and use them as your inspiration!




sexy synths via the most perfect duo (& couple).
jesse and zinzi never disappoint, and i'm screaming with excitement for this album.

our love comes back.

h&m hat and faux leather pants; bow back blouse c/o sosie; vintage coach purse (similar here);
ray-ban round metal sunglasses c/o smartbuyglasses; michael kors watch; zara heels.

 a black blouse is one of my closet staples, this new one from SOSIE being the cutest of them all with the addition of a giant bow and my favorite: a low, bare back. i'm sort of back fanatic - it's the best way to show a glimpse of skin. in an effort to not wear too much black, i used neutral accessories to anchor the dark pieces in my weekend look and ease them into the new season. compliments poured in as much as the spring sunshine. oh and yes, the ray-bans of my dreams! they've adorned many of my polyvore sets, and now i can play with these delicate beauties in real life. 


james, my love for you never went away.

i'm the last cowboy in this town.

  noot seear x the coveteur.

quoted as a vintage hoarder and music fanatic, noot lives in hollywood hills but thankfully shies away from all the fanfare by hiding in this straight-from-my-dreams log cabin. first featured at it's very start in 2009, she will always adorn the pages of this blog thanks to her covetable lifestyle. forever a muse. 

p.s. noot, i would tell you all my secret thrift spots.

no matter where i go.


h&m beanie; topshop blazer; staple blouse (similar here); BDG shortsvintage coach purse (nearly identical here); 
target tights; michael kors watch; vintage rings and belt; office shoes (similar here).

no matter where i go, i have just what i need to keep me covered (ok, heh, barely covered) this coming season thanks to my favorite brand of shorts, BDG. for now i'll be pairing these with layered opaque tights, and i honestly don't mind the slight dip in temperatures too much, as it means i get to squeeze the last few wears out of my beloved outerwear collection. but trust me, the sunshine is such a tease, and i can't wait to feel real warmth on my bare skin. reading at my secret spot on the beach, biking around the neighborhood, snacks and beers in the park, watching my favorite bands at outdoor music festivals, and all the outfits that go along with these - this will be my third and hopefully best chicago summer yet. #dreamingdreamingdreaming 

the virgins are back, the virgins are back!
