Soleri Sunset

IMG_5199 Another day, another dollar, another outfit. I've been wanting to wear this dress to work many times recently, but hesitated because the back has a large cutout. Today I threw on this oversized lace cardigan that I am obsessed with and was set! I thought that the two flowy pieces wouldn't work together, but the slight structure of lace material actually gives it some shape. As a bonus, it keeps me warm in my cold office! I finished off the look with a statement necklace, and then some sandals to keep look a little more summery and less serious.

I was out shopping today with my mom and we stopped on this great bridge over the canal in Scottsdale. The large silver structure you can see in the background is a bridge by Paolo Soleri. I used to think the design was an eyesore, but now it is growing on me. Soleri was a fascinating architect that recently passed away, and now I appreciate having a piece of his work so close to my home!

Grow Young

IMG_4670 What better way to beat the heat than to play with the cutout trend? I paired this summery dress with brown leather accessories for a light summer look. Since I had already styled this dress in a quite bohemian way the last time I wore it, I was planning to wear it with combat boots to edge it up. However, my most recent purchase, these gladiator sandals, have me drawn to my tan leather and gold accessories because they are so cute and lightweight.

You may have also noticed a little change, and no, my hair didn't magically grow over night. I bought extensions over the weekend! I used to think hair extensions were strange and not for me, but I hated my recent haircut (remind me never to say 'yes' to layers again) so I figured, why not? If you have any tips on extensions, I'd love to hear them because I'm pretty new to this!

Golden Geometrics

IMG_1913 Today I almost decided to be lazy and throw on this top with a pair of cutoffs and sandals, but then thought, why not dress up? This top looks way cuter when mixed with a neutral skater skirt anyway! Because of the earthy tones, I added all of my rose gold jewelry to compliment the colors. I finished the look with my lace up sandals. These are my favorite shoes I own, but I've been wearing them less lately to make sure they last longer--I would hate to retire them one day!

I'm off to go study for a midterm and work on some floor plans at my favorite coffee shop (which happens to serve my favorite veggie sandwich as well, yum!) Nothing like a good environment to get your through some hard work!

"Disorder and Disarray"

IMG_0127 As promised, here is the outfit I wore to style the denim jacket I upcycled in yesterday's DIY! To avoid wearing double denim, I paired it with my leather skater skirt which also gave a nice contrast of textures. In order to not let the look get too feminine, I laced up my Sk8-Hi's and really like how the look turned out.

Today I chose a Rancid song for today's outfit because of the patch on my jacket. Listen along to one of my favorites, "Disorder and Disarray" while you view here!

In case you noticed, yes I did upgrade to a new camera. If you're interested, I chose the Canon Rebel T3i. It's only been a few days, but I would definitely recommend it if you are in the market!
