I get it from my Momma

Went in to see Marina at Moxie for a quick trim before work today - you can probably tell because my hair actually looks healthy. I'm getting my ombre touched up in a week, can't wait for the full transformation! I totally stole this moo-moo from my momther, it's perfect for a day like today: unbearably humid and muggy! Yuck. Anyhoot - I have some exciting new things that should be arriving in the mail shortly that I can't wait to unveil on here & utilize (my new camera lens). Thanks to Damaly for always answering all my super annoying SLR questions! :)

Sunset Ombre

It was too hot to wear anything prim, proper and all buttoned up so I opted for light, loose clothing. These Madewell sweats are one of my favorite things in my closet - love them paired with a perfect simple black pump! Usually I wear them with my pointy-toed stilettos but those are currently still in need of some major sand-draining (don't ask). PS - really starting to love the way my ombre is growing out, I just may have to cancel my hair appt!

unconventional colorblocking

inspired by the unconventional color schemes from the resort 2012 shows, i thought i would concoct my own odd pairing with a maroon/burgundy blazer i stole from my mom's closet & my peach equipment-wanna-be silk blouse. people always tell me that "my clothes don't match" & i happily concur... i was going to take it a step further today by wearing grey suede wedge boots, but that would just be unrealistic in this weather. oh and the leather bag i'm carrying which is from the original Coach classics collection, i found a couple months ago at goodwill. it was seriously the best five dollars i've ever spent. and even more awesome since they re-released the classics collection this year, and you can find almost every relevant fashion blogger out there toting a bag from said collection. 

p.s. don't mind the hair, i felt a little adventurous today but i think it's safe to say that the 'milkmaid braid' is definitely not suited for my face shape, more specifically - my chipmunk cheeks. xo

Jewelmint + Furfaceboy

Since it's inception, I've been vying for a piece from Kate Bosworth's jewelry collection, Jewelmint. I received a tweet with a half off code and I knew it was a sign that it was time. I ended up getting the 'bullet necklace' and the 'brixton earrings' - pieces I think could make an outfit. In honor of the aforementioned style icon, I thought I would do a Kate-inspired post, mixing tomboy-ish basics (Furfaceboy tshirt Angel gave me & baggy denim cut-offs) with a little something feminine (sparkly, basket-weave flats). FYI - my legs were roasting like hot platters down in FL, so don't mind the brisket-esque effect. :(
