I’m staying neutral

I used to hate the color brown and avoided it at all costs.  But I’ve since grown out of my dislike for brown, similar to how I’ve grown out of my hatred for asparagus, and embraced this neutral color.  Of course, brown and black always go well together, but gray with brown is also a solid combo and I decided to mix all three neutrals together.

For the last few days, I’ve been overplaying “Dream” by Priscilla Ahn. Her voice is amazing and recently I’ve been relating to these lyrics.

Hope you all have a great rest of the week! xo, Becs

Carry me home

Meet my new favorite boots — Jeffrey Campbell Carry – available at SoleStruck.com.  They are my first pair of over-the-knee boots and it was love at first sight.  The flats and wrap around straps had me at hello.

After nearly missing my flight (screw you Continental Airlines, but thanks to the guard who took pity on us and told us to go up the elevator to avoid the super long security line), Mel and I are back home in the Garden State for the next week and heading to Maryland/Virgina for my friend’s wedding.

I’m still digging the underwear as outerwear trend.  I know this Urban Outfitters corset bra has made its rounds on the blogosphere and I’m glad I re-purchased it after originally returning it.  If you like this trend, definitely head over to Topshop.com because they have a great selection of bralettes.  Just picked up this Silence + Noise cardigan, aka the best lightweight wrap since it’s made of rayon and feels like a super soft blouse.

Did you all notice that my hair is about 5-6 inches shorter?  I’m slowly embracing my medium-length hair and have become re-acquainted with the curling iron.

I’m behind on getting back to comments but promise to catch up tonight.  Thanks so much for your sweet words… they sincerely make my day!  xo

Things that make you go “hmmm”

Happy Friday!  Below are two old pics that I never posted, but both show off my tendency to mix colors that are within the same family.

Ever have one of those moments when you say…

I’m an equal opportunist and am all for unisex clothing, but I  do not approve of these Cheap Monday skinny jeans with lace inserts available for men at Tobi.com.  Yes, for ladies.  Hell to the NO, for men.

And with that, hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

I was looking for a long-sleeve denim shirt and this bleached chambray one from Urban Outfitters fits the bill perfectly.  It’s super comfy and the bleached look puts a twist on what I had originally set out to find.

Thank you to the amazing and globetrotting Haute World for giving me an award.  Also, I won this pair of lovely candleholders from The Inglenook Decor as part of a giveaway by the fabulous ladies behind BonBon Rose.  Thanks so much!

Hope you all had a great weekend!  I saw The September Issue and absolutely loved it.  To be immersed in that creative world for a little over an hour-and-a-half was fascinating and I only wanted to see more after the last scene.
