top & shorts: thompson fifteen, tights: gap, rings: vintage & f21, shoes: bcbg
these are the last set of photos from my thompson fifteen shoot – honestly i wish i could just cover my whole blog in clothes from the site! i think i’m a little obsessed. oh well.
i love these shots because i look a lot like my mom.  both of my parents are in india right now visiting family so i really miss them!  anyways, hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend – i went to my first haunted house last night! it was pretty spooooooky.

cut it out.

dress: thompson fifteen, ring: house of harlow, shoes: jeffrey campbell, bracelets & earrings: vintage
a few years ago i probably would have never worn a cut out dress, but the older i get (i’m 24), the more confident i get with my body! that’s something i’m proud to say and i think it’s important to wear things that make you feel strong & sexy.  this dress was definitely one of those pieces for me – i love the dramatic length and fantastic sides! it’s another look from the thompson fifteen shoot and i was so glad the owner of the site, chelsea, brought it for me to wear that day.
btw – what’s everyone going to be for halloween? i need some ideas!

cityscape.

drape sweater: moda, dress: sparkle & fade, shoes: jessica simpson, earrings: indian, belt: vintage
so…i’m confused. the weather has me dripping sweat one minute and then freezing the next. truth be told, i find fall perfectly strange. oh well, i kind of like it because it keeps things interesting.  i decided to wear this long sweater because it’s so cozy and fantastic – i’ve literally had it for years and i always find myself coming back to it!
this weekend should be fun – i’m going to all sorts of fun events for a music festival in nashville called soundland. let me know if any of you are going to be there!

so today’s post is about two of my favorite warhols: andy & chancellor.  many of you know who andy warhol is, but i’d like to introduce you to my friend chancellor warhol who has an amazing new album called the silver factory dropping today (you might remember when i featured his clothing line HERE). he recently performed at bonnaroo and will be playing at austin city limits & soundland in the next few weeks!
be sure to CHECK OUT THE ALBUM HERE:
just so you know, my favorite tracks are “elvis” and “kings and queens”. if you have a chance to check it out be sure to let me know your favorites as well!

under my umbrella.

maxi: ny&co, sweater: henry cottons, clutch: indian, earrings & belt: vintage, shoes: bcbg, umbrella: dkny
it randomly dropped 30 degrees in nashville today (the high was 65!) and so i decided to rummage through my fall wardrobe. it was a rainy labor day, but i still had an amazing time brunching, shopping, and spending time with some of my favorite people.
i received this umbrella as a free gift at a nordstrom event i went to recently and i must say – i’m kind of in love with it. even when it wasn’t raining i was using it as a pointing device (which got on my family’s nerves very quickly).  oh well, i thought it was funny!
hope you all had a lovely & relaxing long weekend!

peek-a-boo.

 

lace skirt: vintage, shirt dress: pinkyotto, necklace: valentine valentine, belt: banana republic, shoes: christian louboutin
so…i got a new do! the color i have is just the purple part (the blue was temporary from a photo shoot earlier today).  i’ve never tried anything besides neutral hair tones, so i’m pretty excited for my new fall look 🙂
also i’m totally obsessed with this vintage lace skirt – lace is definitely one my favorite trends this season!
what are you guys most excited for this fall?

DIY neon.

shorts: vintage levis from local honey, tee: express, shoes: diy, belt: vintage, earrings: unknown, sunglasses: ual boutique, bracelets: bullets & mullets
i was about to toss my old, scuffed up wedges when a friend of mine tweeted about painting her shoes neon. to be honest, i’ve never been good at DIY projects, but i decided to give it a shot! i was really happy with the result and am loving my new neon wedges 🙂
Necklace & Stacked Rings: Clothed In Scarlet, Skirt: Urban Outfitters, Tank: Target, Denim Shirt: Akira, Sunglasses: Aldo

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

shorts: blank, shoes: bordello, earrings: indian, tank: hanes, rings: vintage & house of harlow
 
happy fourth of july! there’s something fun about celebrating in jean shorts, a cut up hanes tank, and a serious pair of platforms 🙂
btw – i recently ate at my favorite nashville food truck, the grilled cheeserie, and took a few photos while i was there 🙂  if you’re in town, you MUST go – my friend crystal owns it and she’s just amazing!
(i had a sandwich with italian pesto cheese, basil, eggs, and sun dried tomato aioli.  SO GOOD!)
hope everyone has a lovely holiday!

back in bangles.

top: bar III, jeans: blank, earrings: vintage, rings: house of harlow, bracelets: h&m and bullets and mullets, shoes: jessica simpson, satchel: coach
daring backs are so fabulous. i love pieces like this top that look so simple in the front and than have dramatic backs!
i’m also really excited about my bangles because i feel like you have to develop your own personal stack of bangles, each one with a story.  i’ve fallen love with my handcuff bracelet, which i wear with an actual handcuff, and a silver bracelet that i bought in boston years ago. hopefully one day i’ll have a stack of bangles beautifully crafted to my life & travels!
do you guys have jewelry that tells a story?

casual flare.

jeans: mizzae, tunic: saachi, shoes: jessica simpson, ring & earrings: vintage
ladies and gentlemen: this is the last of the tunic posts, i hope you all enjoyed seeing different way to wear them! this last look was the most casual and definitely something i’d wear for a relaxing day out.  i love these flared trousers with just about everything because they’re insanely huge at the bottom – i mean, they’re borderline comical!
i also wanted to reach out to you guys for some help with a quote wall i’m putting together in my room. do you have a favorite quote that you’d like to share?  i’ll post some of my favorites soon – a good quote always makes me smile!
have a fantastic weekend and treat yourself to something nice 🙂
