Hats I consider to be one of my fashion downfalls. The kind that I constantly crave and purchase but ultimately regret once I get home. No matter how much I tell myself all the reasons not to buy them – I never wear them, they don’t look good on me, difficult to store, etc. – it fails almost every time. Thus this floppy, brown felt hat (and no full frontal image of me wearing it). Happy Friday! Have a great weekend. xxxooo

Ever want to just press the “pause” button on life? I came to the realization yesterday that I spend way too much time looking into the future or reminiscing about the past, and not nearly enough time appreciating the present. So as a non-new years resolution (since I don’t really believe in NY’s resolutions) I’m going to make a conscience effort to live in the moment. Have a great week. xxxooo

Out With a Bang

Call it another weird obsession, but my latest fixation has been hoodies. I recently just purchased this cashmere sweatshirt and this Everlane hoodie (love the zipper that zips through the hood), along with this Vince leather jacket featured above. With the addition of my new hairstyle plus my latest purchases I think a therapist would say I’m rewinding back to my 8th grade self. So on that note, heres to a weekend full of blaring “Sk8er Boi” on repeat and late night “AIMing.” Have a great weekend! xxxooo

As cliche as it is to say…I got a new hair cut Saturday and it feels like a good change. See I’ve had bangs for half of my life – and not just side swept whispers, I mean heavy duty full frontal bangs. I began growing them out sophomore year of high school and every fall since, I contemplate cutting them back to an updated version. So Saturday I just went for it! I did a much lighter, longer version and am still in the process of getting use to them. But with a new hair cut comes some other new changes. Hope you all have a wonderful week! xxxooo

I have enough black outwear in my closet – sweaters of various thicknesses, 2 (now 3) leather jackets, and this full length coat – you would think I lived in some cold, metroplian on the East Coast. Something about the simplicity and overall chicness of the color keeps drawing me back in for more. So naturally, when I found my latest leather jacket on sale – not to mention I’d been craving it since this summer – I had to jump on it. Have a great weekend! xxxooo
