Ikat, I love you.

Stumbled across these Rubio wedge boots while browsing Aldo and instantly fell in love.  Typically, shoes are the next to last thing I decide upon when putting together a look, but these ikat print boots inspired me to create three looks around the soles.

aldo rubio boots

Look #1:  Weekend getaway

Pair the (unbuttoned) denim sleeveless shirt over a long-sleeve maxi dress for a weekend of wine tasting and out-of-town exploring.


Look #2:  Breakfast club

Brunch it up and then head to the local flea market for some treasure hunting and haggling.


Look #3:  It’s (un)complicated

When you oversleep and have ten minutes to get ready, keep it easy breezy in a simple oversized blouse and bold color pants.

Huge thank you to Audrey Magazine for featuring me in its winter issue, now on newstands.  I’ve been a fan of the magazine ever since reading it in college and am thrilled about now appearing in an issue.  Much love, Audrey!

Yesterday’s Holi Pop-up shopping event was a blast.  Met some fabulous people including Issa from we wear things and Steph from That Girl is Hoisin.  Photos to follow shortly, including ones with my newly added feather hair extensions.  Yes, feathers… and yes, I’m slightly obsessed.

I say it each Monday and today’s no different.  Kick Monday in the ass.

    Ahhh, those shoes are dreamy!

    I saw the glitter Lita’s on Nasty Gal, and let me tell you, I was intimidated! They are seriously amazing, but I knew I’d only wear them inside the house for fear of leaving a magical glitter trail all over.

    That doesn’t mean I didn’t snag a pair of Lita’s in another color for myself. *wink wink*
