overalls part 2.

Well I did jump on the bandwagon earlier this year and purchase a pair of overalls.  And I would like to admit that I love them.  Yep, there I said it.  Hmmmmm, now my eyes have narrowed in on this faux leather version.  It remains to be seen if I will also take the plunge on these.  But while I'm at it, I also added in a few accessories that would be perfect additions to this outfit.

festival fashion.

I find so much fashion inspiration just walking around and checking out other girl's "street style".  One of my ultimate fave spots to find stylish outfits is at festivals.  I swear, everyone kicks it up a notch as they go and watch their favorite bands on a sunny summer afternoon.  Here are some looks that I'm loving at the moment.

fashion inspiration.

Some weeks I just keep reaching for the same thing in my closet day after day (yep, I'm talking about you white maxi dress).  So yesterday I started scouring the web for some new fashion inspiration and these gems caught my eye.  Jean on jean, aka the canadian tuxedo...thoughts?  Well I wore a similar version of this last night and actually kind of liked it.  And an all black ensemble during the summer?  If you pair some chic black shorts with a loose top, I'm all about it.

fashion rules.

I couldn't agree more with this quote.  I like to experiment with fashion.  Why not?  I once worked in a showroom for an amazing furniture manufacturer.  It was a modern furniture company and they were fine with us dressing a little more fashion forward.  One day I wore a super ruffly dress in a bright color (with a blazer) and one of my fave clients came in.  He said to me "wow, that's quite the dress.  It kind of looks like something my daughter would wear to school...on wacky wednesday...she's in kindergarten".  I laughed out loud.  While my co-workers seemed to look on in horror, I was smiling from ear to ear.  I liked the fact that I was dressing a bit crazy, dressing just the way I wanted.  So I completely agree, "forget the rules, if you like it, wear it"!


seeing double.

I have a confession to make, I have purchased two of the very same item of clothing.  Ekkkkk!  It's a very rare occurrence, but I have found a few dresses that I fell in love with and decided I needed the exact same one in a different color.  I already own this lovely in blush, but I'm kind of thinking I might need to invest in tea or mint too.  And I know that they call this a "slip dress", but it's definitely more of a tunic on me.  I love love love it!


spring transition.

As spring time quickly approaches and the temps warm up, I've been dreaming up new ways to take key pieces in my wardrobe and transition them.  While we all know that I love a good maxi dress with a blazer or sweater thrown on top as I head out the door, I'm also loving this look.  I just recently picked up a pair of faux leather shorts and I think they'd look amazing with a simple white tee and oversized blazer.



I've already worn pants twice this week people, twice!  That's major for a girl that rarely wears pants (dresses, skirts, and leggings under tunics are my jam).  Therefore I've been majorly crushing on girls who can rock a good slouchy pant.  I will definitely be attempting to recreate these looks.  Oh and those sequin slouchy pants, you had me at hello!

tulle dreams.

Wow, I've been very spotty on my blog posts this week (ummm as in I only got around to blogging once), but things have been a little chaotic around these parts, so a small break was needed.  Now, I'm BACK!  Last night G and I went to the J.Crew - Vogue event and had the best time!  While there I spotted the cutest girl sporting this skirt from Anthropologie (which I'm kind of in love with).  She paired it with an adorable plaid shirt (similar to this J.Crew one).  Man, I wish I would have gotten a photo of her....I loved the way she styled the skirt to make it a little less ballerina-ish.

UPDATE: I got a tweet from @anthropologie regarding this post, and here's a photo of the cute girl I spotted last night.  So adorable, right?

rain gear.

While on the hunt for the perfect little rain coat (I believe this one will fit the bill), I stumbled upon these ladies.  I mean, hello, they are definitely looking quite chic in the rain.  Wouldn't you agree?

rainy days.

The rainy season is about to hit at any moment and I'm completely unprepared.  Every year I say I'm going to buy a raincoat, but I never do and end up running around with my umbrella and winter coat that ends up half soaked when I reach my destination.  This year I'm determined to find some proper rain gear.  I'd love to find something that is functional and just a bit stylish...is it out there?  This little pink number might just do the trick.
