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!

SHOE UNBOXING_Target Moccasins

so...im LOVING the Mossimo brand moccasins I picked up from Target recently. As you may have seen in my August Favorites post (here) I had been wanting some moccasins because I really didn't have any brown shoes in my wardrobe and I needed some cozy and comfortable footwear for fall. I had seen some Minnetonka brand mocs on sale at TJ Maxx and while I was excited about the deal, they just weren't the color or style I wanted. That's why I was so excited to find these at Target for only 20 bucks! I love the color, the fact that they are booties, and the fringe and braid detail around the ankles. I have already been wearing these almost every night when I go to my studio at night--so I highly recommend them!

I suggest Amazon.com 4_i love this bandana tee from misbhv that i spotted on the Alice Point blog. I think it's prefect for a future DIY 5_Minnetonka Mocassins I'll probably shop around for a cheaper option, or pick some up at Last Chance. 6_i love this skull print blouse from Necessary Clothing. and at 15 dollars, i think it will be in my closet soon! 7_i had an eye ring like this that I bought in Italy, but unfortunately lost it in an airport (r.i.p). But this one from Empty Casket is almost better with the gold detail. 8_this skull knit from Nasty Gal is perfection. 9_i currently love both yin yangs and Jac Vanek clothing. this shirt, is the perfect combination of the two.
