IMG_4470 I have a bit of a love affair with this building. I drive past it twice a day going to and coming from work, and always sneak a peek as I go by. Yesterday I just had to stop and get a closer look. I love the blue-toned glass front and brick facade. Yeah...I'm basically obsessed with this little structure. But I'll have more on that in another post! As for my outfit, I loved how the rugged exterior went well with my utilitarian vest and purse. Although this purse might look like a girly piece, I consider it utilitarian because it is roomy and has so many pockets, allowing me to tote my DSLR and sketchbook wherever I go.

For work I wore just this dress with a pair of silver Toms and it just felt way too girly for me. I threw on my vest and boots and soon as I got home. Although I couldn't wear this vest to work so I had an exception, I always try remember to stay true to myself and my personal style. It will give you a lot more confidence when you're just being you!

Thanks so much for reading my posts! I hope that you have been enjoying my effort to include a little more of my architectural interests into my blog. Have a great weekend! x, Paige

Motorhead in Moorhead

IMG_3760 My cousin's wedding is tonight and I will be wearing a maxi dress by Reformation, but today we prepped the reception hall. I wore cutoffs and a tee to stay comfy while I made flower arrangements and decorated with my family. I chose this vintage Motorhead tee because I felt that the warm tones in the graphic went well with the aztec embellishment on these shorts.

Although my cousin lives in North Dakota, Minnesota is right on the border so technically we are staying in Moorhead, Minnesota. A little Motorhead in Moorhead if you will? Anyways I'm off to get ready because the ceremony starts at 4! I will have a post up tomorrow on what I wore and hopefully a few photos from the wedding. Thanks for reading! x, Paige

MONTHLY FAVORITES_November

This month's favorites list is really more of a wish list than a favorites list. Other than the Rose Bowl Flea Market, I didn't do any other shopping this month. Since I already shared those finds with you here I decided to choose some of my favorite online finds this month. A lot of these pieces are out of my price range, but they're fun to get inspired by for some future DIYs! November Favorites

1_metallic studded skull tee from Urban Outfitters.I might search for some skull studs to make this myself. 2_black suede Dina by Jeffrey Campbell. It's no secret that I love anything made with lucite or plexiglass! 3_sequin skater dress from Topshop that's on sale right now. 4_I don't really have words for how much I love these shoes by Jeffrey Campbell 5_the multibadge clutch from The Editors Market. I think this will be a great DIY project! 6_Smells Like Teen Spirit pants from Wasteland 7_faux leather pants from Target. These are marked down to $15! 8_cathedral leggings from Blackmilk. Really though, who doesn't want a pair of Blackmilk leggings? The cathedral print is my favorite because it reminds me of Italian architecture.
