When it comes to paisley, I can be quite picky. There are so many kind of paisley patterns out there, some are delicate and elegant but some are just plain awful and tacky. I picked up this perfectly tailored silk dress from H&M a couple weeks ago and it has the prettiest paisley print on it. I just love the colors! What's better to match this lovely dress than some sheer heart print socks and sparkly glitter pumps?

I continue to dress monochromatically, this time is mint on mint! Sticking to one color scheme is so much fun because you get to play with the same yet different shades of color. It has been raining on and off this past week so when the rain finally decided to take a break, we took advantage of it and went for a walk along the coast. So, I guess I can say this is my taking-a-stroll outfit... vintage polkadots blouse, mint cable knit sweater, mint skinnies, and clear oxfords!

There are so much going on with this outfit, but it works because I chose a neutral color scheme so these elements are all very subtle. I thrifted this awesome vintage military blazer for two dollars, rolled up the sleeves and threw it over a simple stripes dress, along with tons of bracelets and rings. Instead of wearing a neutral pair of shoes to go with the whole neutral color scheme, I decided to wear something fun and colorful. These booties are one of the coolest shoes I own (although I do have LOTS of shoes). I mean, look at them! They are made of genuine leather! There are scallop details! There are grommets! And the laces end with tassels! I love them!

Lately, I can't seem to get enough of monochromatic colorblocking, wearing the same color of slight variations. I love the blush knit top next to the peach skinnies, the softness of the top goes perfectly with the brightness of the pants. They are basically the same shade but of very different intensity. Of course I had to wear my m.a.c morange lipstick to match it all. And with a shaggy coat, funky sunglasses, and "The Stunning" platforms, I look like I came straight out of the movie Almost Famous.

Aren't these velvet wedges with an embroidered cat face just absolutely darling? Look at those ears! As a crazy cat lady, it is no surprise that I am falling head over heels for these shoes! I paired them with a vintage peter pan collar wool coat, it was so cold I just wanted to look simple and stay warm! Oh, and did I mention that these cat shoes are available in my shop? They even come in three colors - black, red, and brown!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Why wear green when you can wear mint? While everyone is sporting the truest form of green, I decided to do something a little different and wear soft minty hues instead. And yes, I did it from head to toe! Mint dove print cardigan over mint polkadots dress with vintage mint shoes!

Sorry for the lack of outfits lately, it's been raining all week and it is rather difficult to try to take photos when...
1) it is wet everywhere
2) there isn't any nice indoor location to shoot at (especially when I prefer natural lighting)
3) wearing not-so-exciting shoes since I don't want to ruin the awesome ones in the rain
4) trying to balance holding an umbrella and camera

Today, fortunately, the rain stopped for a moment and I was able to take some quick shots of me layering up in leather and neutral tones. I love this blazer, camel wool blend material with black leather collar and sleeves! Thought I would tone it down with a simple sweater underneath and then edge it up again with leather stirrups and lace up boots.
