Cactus Lace

IMG_4373 Since I have started working 8-hour days and coming home in the evening, I have been trying to choose work outfits that are still cute for nighttime wear. Although I might not be able to get away with this look in some offices, I am lucky that mine is somewhat casual. I also think most people in Arizona are reasonable with getting a little more casual in the workplace because it is just so hot. I stayed cool in these detailed pieces, a lace tank and a self-altered thrifted skirt.

Today was a really rewarding day at work for me. Since I started at my new job, I have been juggling a couple of land properties. In the past 2 days, I concentrated on one property in Chandler and created a site plan in order to get some feedback from the city's Planning and Development Department. Today I got to print out large copies of my site plan and go turn it in at their office. It was such a cool feeling to create something on my own that was for a real piece of land, rather than a school project!

Thanks so much for stopping by! What have you been up to this week? x, Paige

Washroom Warrior

IMG_4013 Recently I've been beating the heat in nothing but workout gear and bathing suits, but last night decided to dress up for a change. I wore this blouse and shorts combo to dinner and movies with my friends. Since I wear this Gypsy Warrior shirt a lot, I like to mix it with new pieces all the time, which is why I chose these green Free People shorts. To finish off the look, I went with black and gold in my shoes, necklace, and other favorite Gypsy Warrior piece, my studded bowling bag.

Sometimes I just don't get a chance to photograph my outfit at daylight, so I experimented with this new setting at my friend's apartment. For the night, I was a washroom warrior.

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!

"Killers"

DSC_1311 So this outfit prompts me to wonder if I should rename my blog "Countless Ways to Style Iron Maiden muscle tees." I'm joking of course, and I hope you guys aren't sick of seeing these tops. I just got such a great deal on eBay, they're super comfy, and are the perfect amount of bad ass vibes.

I paired it with my Unif Morrison pants, which I can't seem to take off lately. I just love the fit and that ankle slit. I die for the way that detail looks when paired with these red pumps from Target. That's another great thing about this outfit, it's under $60. Killer.

The track for today's outfit is "Killers," the title track for the album pictured on this shirt. Listen along below while you view!

I wore this outfit to dinner with friends my last night in California before spring break, and liked the classy casual look it gave me!
