Who You Callin'?

Photo Apr 20, 5 37 17 PM Yesterday was productive and creative, I spent the day working on a few projects from home. My friends and I then decided to walk down to the local record store from our house to celebrate Record Store Day. I love that we can walk to such fun places, and we were surprised to see local bands playing in the back so we stayed and listened to a couple sets before picking up a few records, which I'm listening to now!

One of the local bands playing was Proxima Parada. I have heard about these guys forever but had never listened to their music. It was amazing! I couldn't believe how good their voices were. I think you guys will enjoy them too! Listen along to their song "Who You Callin'?" here, and also check out their other music!

"Double Vision"

IMG_0808 I really love the ability to pair boots and dresses together in the spring, so I'm capitalizing on the opportunity because it gives me a chance to wear my Docs more often, which is always a good thing. I love that I picked these pieces up at inexpensive places, but they form a really good look. Especially this dress. I've had it for a while and it is from TJ Maxx, but it is probably the most flattering dress I own. I love great finds like that from unexpected places.

The outfit track for today is "Double Vision" by 3OH!3. Mostly because it reminded me of spring vibes (wishing I was still on spring break) and also because I hadn't given that group a listen in a while. Listen along below while you view!

HOW I STYLE_Vests for Spring + Video!

I filmed this video with my iPhone over the past couple of weeks because I have noticed how much vests are becoming a staple of my spring wardrobe. I love how they add a layer to your outfit, without making you too warm. Check out the video and I have also included photos with outfit details below if you are curious!

DSC_0551 Today I wanted to show how I transitioned the same dress from day to night, but when both looks are very casual and involve a lot of basics. The first outfit is what I wore to walk downtown to my favorite coffee shop and study, and the second shows how I added some extra layers for going to studio later in the night.

Although I wore a lot of red in my past two outfit posts, I am finding that I am more drawn to wearing neutrals now that my hair is a bolder color. I really like how the color looks against denim and black. I'll have to experiment with neutrals more in the next few weeks!

Since it was dark while I wanted to shoot this, I ended up in my room. However, I don't mind this because I like showing aspects of my space and one of the latest painting I've been working on!
