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!

OOTD // Packing Up

IMG_3053 Today I have been packing up my studio and room in preparation for leaving at the end of the week. I actually may have to leave a day later than planned, but I will share why in the next few days! In order to stay stylish yet functional, I paired one of my go-to muscle tees with some durable boots. Finally, the gold-toned accessories and sunnies are then keeping the look a little polished.

Notice the large piece of plywood? Despite being obsessed with this texture for photo backgrounds lately, I am working on a special DIY to give my roommates as going away gift because I won't be seeing them for a year. More on that later this week!

Into the Great Wide Open

IMG_1755 Finally a cold day has passed through and I got to pull out my prized Unif AWOL jacket. Since buying it in Chicago I hadn't had a chance to wear it, but today was the day. Lately I'm loving the look of neon mixed with neutrals (especially camo as a neutral) even though I think this trend is a little out of style, but I could care less about that. When you're going to wear one of your favorite pieces in your closet, why not throw on another? Which for me are my vintage Docs. They just complete an outfit so well in my opinion.

Today's outfit track is one that I felt went well with the camp/neon/tye-dye coming from this outfit. Listen along to "Into the Great Wide Open" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers while you view, here!

P.S. How awesome are these nails I got at Target? They are stick-on with a simple peel-off back, but they seriously last so long. They feel really strong on my nails and even made it through a beach day this weekend. Obsessed!

"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!
