Ruffle me up

Top: Anthropologie
Jeggings: ASOS
Shoes: Evans
Necklace: Free People
Cuff: Nakamol
Bag: Thomas Paul, from Fred Flare

Just a quick outfit post before I go to school where I'll be slammed in textbooks and graphic memoirs about women studies and LGBT history. Ryan's family was in town for the past 5 days which explains the lack of posts last week. Sorry about that! I really only had one entire day off to spend with them and we all had so much fun together! It was Sunday and we had brunch at Melrose diner in my neighborhood, went hat shopping at Goorin Bros that opened about three months ago (I got two hats! I will definitely have to make a post about them soon). From there, we went on a boat ride for an Architecture tour which was so amazing and informative! Then, the Grand Lux Cafe which was so delicious I can't even tell you guys.

But before I get to my Goorin Bros post, I have to share all my finds from Renegade Craft Fair later in the week. IT WAS SO GOOD, Y'ALL. I wish I could have gone both days. It's just one of those things that you need experience twice - the first time you should go alone because you want to look at everything and not bother other people that may not be as into it as you are. The second time should be with friends that have also experienced it once so you can chitchat along the way. I get too into the hunt of it all to be any fun the first time... which I think was the case for me this year, but hey? Who cares! I got some lovely, lovely things and I'm really excited to share them with you guys.

Until then!

Dress: Ruche
Shorts, Bag: Thrift
Necklace: Renegade Craft Fair
Cuff: Nakamol, from Art Effect
Shoes: Ebay

This is one of those outfits that you put together one day and something just clicks. I've worn it to work, on my birthday, out with friends, to the bar, to a concert. Surprisingly enough, I haven't gotten tired of it! I've also been wearing this cuff like crazy lately. It's actually more sparkly in person, but in a really cool and rustic way. I love how easy it is to dress up and down, and it goes with so many things without being matchy-matchy. It's always a little unexpected, but in a good way.

I hope you guys have a lovely weekend! I can't even tell you how excited I am for Renegade Craft Fair this weekend (I'll be going on Sunday) and season 3 finale of True Blood! Ahh. Sunday is so close, and yet so far away!

Cold hearted

Jacket: Buffalo Exchange
Top: Urban Outfitters
Scarf: Madewell
Necklace: Free People
Shorts: Faith 21
Bag: Thrift
Sunglasses: H&M
Tights: Courtesy of We Love Colors
Shoes: Evans

I am so happy to say that I had the loveliest weekend. We had the most beautiful cool weather and I definitely took the opportunity to try out some new fall clothes. I received these splash metallic tights from We Love Colors a few weeks ago. I always feel like I don't have enough unique pieces in my wardrobe, so this was my chance to break out of my shell a little. Because of how unique these tights are, I also found that they're difficult to style but I think this outfit works. And for anyone interested to know - these aren't super stretchy in the thigh area, but with a lot of pulling and adjusting, I was able to get them on and they held up ALL DAY. And boy do I love a pair of tights that I don't have to adjust.

And now, back to 80 degree weather. Have a happy labor day everyone!

Happy medium.

I am absolutely obsessed with this Delfina Delettrez cuff from Opening Ceremony (shown on left). I could get upset about its $2890 price tag, but I consider myself lucky to own its vintage counterpart (on the right). I found this beautiful belt last year at my favorite thrift store for a measly 50 cents. You can't beat that!

Me and Mrs. Jones

Blouse: Courtesy of City Chic
Shorts: Bag, Ring: Thrift
Cuff: Erica Weiner
Necklace: Free People
Shoes: Urban Outfitters

You guys! It's been forever since I've posted! I've been lacking serious energy lately since I'm constantly on my feet with work. The more I get used to it, the more I miss blogging in my spare time so I definitely want to make a better effort at posting for all my wonderful readers. I appreciate you all!

The outfit I'm wearing is such an easy day off look. When I'm not working, I am definitely living in these cut off shorts that I thrifted at the beginning of summer. I love pairing them with feminine tops. I'm especially crazy about the bed jacket feel of this City Chic blouse, and I love that I can get the same look without the excess fabric that bed jackets tend to have.

Finally, I have to talk about my fake Fendi! I was stalking this bag a month or so ago at my favorite thrift store but waited to buy it when it was half off. I don't care that it's a fake Fendi, because it's the style, shape and colors that I fell in love with before I saw the label. I just can't help but feel like I'm channeling the infamous Samantha Jones. You know what I'm talking about!
