Out of Place

01
It is a bit bizarre that I am posting these photos of myself wearing a sweater when it has been incredibly hot the past few days! I snapped these shots last week during a gloomy evening walk but now they feel so out of place! Oh well, still a nice simple look so here goes... For a long long time, I was afraid of jeans, let alone white jeans. I thought they made me shorter than I already am or they are simply just uncomfortable, that is, until I found McGuire Denim (or more accurately McGuire Denim found me). I have been wearing these white Carmina skinnies so much that I think they are due for a wash! Not to mention how great they look with my cute new purse from DSW and these amazing strappy slide sandals which I also can't stop wearing!

Summer Blues

01bluetube
I honestly can't remember the last time I wore a tube top, it was probably back in 8th grade when I thought I was the coolest kid in class (and I wasn't). I also really hate subconsciously and continuously having to adjust it at all times. Overall, it's just not my thing. However, this one I am wearing here is an exception. I love the blue and white tribal print, the ruffled overlay, and the cute dotted trim so much that I looked past the fact that it is a tube top. I paired it with these high waisted denim shorts with heart shaped pockets I have had for years and this amazing crochet knit duster with fringes.

Cat and Marshmallows

Malvi1
If you have been following my blog and/or instagram for awhile, you would know that I am a crazy cat lady. So it is no surprise that I literally gasped when I saw this adorable cat dessert stand! For now I filled it up with some Malvi marshmallow cookie sandwiches (which are incredibly delicious by the way, my favorite is the Vanilla Salted Caramel!) but I can also see myself using this stand as a jewelry holder as well!

Go Go Triangle

01triangles
Not quite sure where my sudden obsession with triangles came from but these things around my home are pretty awesome, if I do say so myself! I recently started dabbling in gardening and that comes with a lot of planters and pots shopping. I was so excited to find ScottAve which is an Etsy shop full of hand painted planters with modern, geometrical, and minimal designs. The three I got look great individually as well as together as a set. I am a bit peculiar when it comes to which plant goes in which pot so that's why the two black and white ones aren't occupied yet. Soon though. Another wonderful piece I have with triangles is this leather and canvas pouch by Anne B Designs. This bag, part of the Made Collection, is available for pre-order through an Indiegogo campaign that will in turn perpetuate the development of a sewing school. Hurry though, the campaign ends tomorrow!

Flowery

01colorembroidery
This dress is my absolute favorite dress ever (I must really like it to make such a statement because I have A LOT of dresses)! Everything about it is stunning... the intricate embroidery, the colorful floral, the sheer organza, and the slight flounce details. To bring out the pink and blue of the dress, I paired it with a fuchsia leather clutch, lapis honeycomb ring, and blue heels. I wish you can all see this dress in real life though because photos don't do it justice at all!
