Photo found on this cute girl’s blog.
Have I mentioned I’m obsessed with these sunnies?
P.S. I have been wanting to invest in a good SLR for some time now and this photograph makes me yearn even more for a really good camera. I’m setting my intention now…
I have been revisiting this photo quite a few times ever since Katy, of Kansas Couture, posted it early last week. I met her last September at the Weardrobe Conference, and she really is this adorable in person, and super sweet too! Anyway, the thing is, I own this top, which is actually a striped dress from H&M, as well as the metal braided necklace she’s wearing. I also have floral skirts that I love, but the one used in this outfit really does it for me. So, because I love this look so much, I decided that my goal is to try and recreate this look as best I can. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Stay tuned this week to see what I come up with!
Thanks for the inspiration, Katy! xoxo
Um, is this a stroke of genius or what? The lovely Krystal, of This Time Tomorrow has gone and done it again. Not only is she an awesome person, but I love her style in general. She is always coming up with ingenious ways to wear regular pieces of clothing by adding her own twist and style. I remember back when I first started reading her blog, I went bananas over this embellished tank she wore here. So much so, that I saved the photo and tucked it away in my DIY to-do folder. I still need to get around to making a similar top, but the point is the inspiration she provided. Anyway, this time, she went and cut off the sleeves of a her trench coat and sent me into a style frenzy. Although her post was supposed to be about her cute DIY turban, I was blinded by her DIY trench. Here’s the thing. I have a trench that I bought from Banana Republic, like forever ago, and I never wear it, which is a shame, but it just doesn’t fit right. It’s too long and overall way to big. I was going to take it in and get it tailored—read: expensive—but now I am having second thoughts and might just pull out my scissors instead and take matters into my own hands…
Hope you’re all having a lovely Thursday! Outfit photo to come in a bit! xoxo

Yay! I just saw that Glamour posted 11 Ways to Beat the Winter Wardrobe Blahs. I am so excited about to be a part of this. To get inspiration, and advice on how to avoid the blues that come with the blah days of the winter, click here!
Alright, seriously. Check out this girl’s style. She writes the very cool blog, Second Skin, which I found her via What I Wore. I have to agree with Jessica, she is totally adorable and very inspiring. Take the outfit above, for example. I have been in a bit of an outfit funk since I got back to New York because all my clothes seem wrinkled and it is just so dang cold out. But, one look at this ensemble and I perked up. I am going to try and use this look as inspiration for an outfit to come, either tonight—going to hear Passion Pit (!)— or this weekend, which is my best friend’s Birthday party. So, stay tuned!

Seeing that it’s the start of a new year, I am in the mood to change up my hair a bit. First off, I am going to get a haircut and possibly get my bangs back. Secondly, I am playing with the idea of trying out a slightly darker shade for the winter months. Those are two things that I can do immediately, but the third thing I want to try and attempt, is to grow my hair out to the length in the photo above. I’m not saying it will be easy, but I am going to give it a shot. I have always loved long, romantic mermaid-esque locks, so here’s to growing my own! Wish me luck!
