paracosm.

h&m embroidered blouse (nearly identical here); sheinside polka dot overall dress; zara chain strap bag 
(similar here); ray-ban wayfarers; michael kors watch; h&m ankle boots (similar here).

after a little internet research, i learned paracosm is defined as creating a highly detailed fantasy world. ernest greene describes it as daytime psychedelia. in such a frame of mind, i would be wearing a here); sheinside polka dot overall dress (i will find a way to style this into autumn) and boots with bare legs (forever a favorite), listening to the entire new washed up album. it's like being wrapped up in the moment; the simple escape of a carefree summer afternoon. 

oh, you gorgeous paracosm.

completely yours.


may the label knit top (c/o); thrifted denim skirt (similar here and here); daame clutch (c/o); ray-ban wayfarers; michael kors watch; h&m oxfords.

 knit, denim, navy + neutrals - all my favorites at once.
in case you missed it yesterday, see my daame bag snoop feature and enter to win a special something from the makers of this cool little clutch here!

heavenly beat doesn't even need its affiliation to one of my favorite bands (beach fossils) to put it on the radar. 
just as the first single off the sophomore album proves, insanely good music does that all on its own.

at least we had the sun.


romwe crop top (c/o); thrifted shorts; vintage coach bag (remade here); ray-ban sunglasses; michael kors watch; choies sandals.

i'm very noncommittal when it comes to summer. on one hand, i want it to last forever. on the other, i yearn for change. a change of scenery, a change of mood, a change of wardrobe options. at this point i'm wearing everything i know i won't be able to in the very near future, like this crop top and recently acquired ninety cent thrift shorts. here's to those last kisses of summer sun.

i can dream for us all.

thrifted army jacket (similar here); sugarlips embroidered dress (c/o); zara bag; ray-ban sunglasses; michael kors watch; aldo boots. 

photos c/o chicago reader; shot by isa giallorenzo.
snapped a couple weekends ago at wicker park fest. it was cool enough to throw on a jacket and was the end to an incredible two week vacation filled with live music, sunny beaches, mini road trips, al fresco dining, and just about every single thing good about summertime.

this could be on repeat forever and i'd be okay, forever.
