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

Fancy Friday

IMG_1685 It became an architecture-major-wide tradition for my grade to start dressing up at the end of the week in honor of "Fancy Fridays." I'm sure there was a certain studio that can take credit for making up the tradition, but no matter who did, it still gets followed. Sometimes we will all plan to do it one Friday, but even if we don't, sometimes I still like to get a little fancier in celebration for the weekend. I wore this fun printed dress yesterday paired with a heeled boot and minimal accessories!

"Fly Like an Eagle"

IMG_0166 As promised, here is how I styled the statement belt that I mentioned in yesterday's post from my trip to a new vintage store in town! To compliment it's americana feel, I paired it with a classic white blouse and jean shorts. I love the natural vibe of this outfit, and how my gold and turquoise accessories finish it off.

I wore this outfit to Zia Records and dinner with my friends last night. At the store I picked up The Steve Miller Band's greatest hits album for a few bucks. Listening to it today, I realized "Fly Like and Eagle" was the perfect track for today's outfit to compliment my eagle belt. Listen along to the song below while you view!

HOW I STYLE_Vests for Spring + Video!

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADEEDGEjcUY&w=560&h=315]

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!
