THOSE BOOTS. Perfection for the season that is upon us. I mean, just stop it. I like to call this particular style the breathable mesh appeal, because I quite enjoy stating the obvious. Go quite dandy with the ‘ol cut out trend too, I might add.
Confession: I kind of hate sandals. Yes, it’s true. Let me dish for a minute. Ya’ll. I’m deathly afraid of (and extremely disgusted by) feet. Even writing it makes me cringe. And let’s be real, it’s kind of hard to feel really great and stylish in a pair of flat sandals (exceptions apply, obviously). This has always been a hangup of mine in the spring and summer seasons. Confession over. Now you can fully appreciate my excitement about these amazing booties and these ones here too. LIVIN’ IN EM ALL DAY ERRRY DAY. How do you like that for some spring trends?
Guys – BIG news. The boyfriend and I are headed to NYC at the end of April. We live all the way over in Utah land, so this is a big deal for us, okay? We’re celebrating our little love (belated 3 years!) and I couldn’t be more thrilled. AND STRESSED. I’ve been wanting to get out to NYC for a good year and a half, but haven’t. That means I plan to jam pack this trip to epic proportions (boyfriend groans). THAT’S WHERE YOU COME IN, dear reader.
I don’t care if you are born and raised in NYC, Brooklyn or the Bronx, or you’ve only been there once, for 2 hours…I want to know what your favorite spots are. Obviously this is a style blog so I’m MOST concerned about the shopping. I want that local flavor, those sweet spot thrift joints and killer boutiques that I can’t find anywhere but the big city. We also love to eat, so some local joints for that would be amazing as well. Oh and drinks, we really like drinks. Anything you’ve got – throw it my way. Also, if you know of any resources or bloggers that have done guides on the city, can you holla at your girl? #newyorkstateofmind
You’re my favorite people, like, ever.
MEOW, ya’ll. Today I’m serving up the perfect amount of cheetah for you feline cravings. Oh and a side of nerd, naturally. These marvelous specs are by Bonlook (bonnie & clyde style) and they aim to please. I get a MILLION compliments on these suckers and boy are they comfortable too. I’ve never been more in love with a pair of specs in my life.
Get it? Oscar the slouch pants? Ok, maybe it’s just late and I’m not really as funny as I think I am. Or maybe I am. Either way, this is my of my favorite shoots yet. That boyfriend of mine is getting pretty fancy with the lens, isn’t he? His gram is off the charts too. Gosh maybe I’m just a proud girlfriend. Hell, I’m all kinds of things as I write this post. Just scroll on for more visual enjoyment, ya dig?
Yep, that’s the Bitwell beanie again, #duh.
Yes, I promise the shoot gets better. Get more after the JUMP…
Today I have for you not one, but two articles of clothing from the boys section…a little bit of boy meets girl clothing, if you will. By now, you’ve all guess that I love me a good beanie. I mean really, I could live in them. Which actually puts me in quite the predicament with summer right around the corner…
Either way, this (boys) Biltwell beanie is the jam. It’s the most comfortable thing for your dome, ever. My boyfriend likes to keep me hip and hard core by indulging my love of boy clothing and getting me said beanie, just so I can feel like one of the guys. Sweet one, isn’t he? Oh yeah, and that tee? Article numero dose, kiddos. This one is by Comune and it’s also ultra comfy and the perfect basic. It’s so hard for me to find plain, long tee’s, but this one nails it. So what if I found it on the wrong side of the store?
Outfit details and more shots from this shoot after the JUMP…
Ok, are you dying over these cartoon print dresses? Not to mention, the other pieces are as equally swoon-worthy too, right? This collection is print heavy, while still refined, comfortable and approachable. It just gets me. Count me in as a believer. I am also totally in love with the way this lookbook is done – the perfect vibe for this collection. Ps. the model is Candela Novembre and she’s a total babe. Ok – let’s all pool our money together and get one piece to share, cool? I think I’m leaning towards this palm tree blue vest below… Who gets to wear it first?
