Little Linear Dress, the Work Version of an LBD

IMG_4317 This striped dress is the perfect thing to throw on when I'm crunched for time but need to look professional. You may remember that it served me well for an interview and a studio review, and on this day it was great for an early morning at work. The high neck keeps it classy but the cutoff sleeves keep me cool in the AZ heat. I paired with it some black shoes with a little height, and my every day bag. This bag has gold accents on the bottom, so I went another step to go all black and gold by adding a bangle and Casio watch.

I've been working so many days lately that I've missed my cutoffs and band tees. Luckily tonight is my good friend's birthday and I'll get to dress down a bit for a night of bowling to celebrate!

Master of Puppets

IMG_2767 As a deep lover of crewnecks, I'm not sure as to why I never thought to throw one over a dress before. I love the casual cool look this achieves, especially when paired with a well worn pair of vintage Docs. I coveted this sweatshirt for months and, as usual, waiting until it got marked down and snagged it for less than 20 bones. Does anyone else feel like they can't justify paying more than $25 for an item? I'd bet money that 80% of my wardrobe cost less than that.

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!

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!
