h&m trend blouse, zara pants, kelsi dagger shoes, gucci bag

purchased this blouse on a trip to the city this past weekend.  found so much things i wanted at h&m.  along with this blouse, i only got a necklace and a scarf.  i stopped at that because  marni at h&m arrives next week!!  there are two tops and a pair of shorts that i really want.  i usually don't like collab lines but marni did not hold back.  anyway, weather was horrible today and people that live in apartment buildings with nice cut-out concrete walls are mean.    


green means go.

zara top, f21 shorts, dolce vita shoes, four strand bracelet c/o maya brenner

love unexpected pairings.  bought these shorts because i really loved the texture but couldn't find anything already in my closet to really match.  found this printed blouse hiding and with the nude wedges i got this fun little look.    


concrete garden.

whole outfit from zara, four strand bracelet c/o maya brenner, dolce vita shoes that i won(!), vintage clutch

such the perfect day to wear my favorite outfit of the moment.  everything that i'm loving that i will probably get myself tired of soon; floral blouses, open-knit sweaters and high waist a-line shorts.  i aimlessly drove around today and ended up at one of my favorite spots to shoot, these art studios in my town. the people that live there always welcome my brother and i.  and they always change up their alleys/yards/gardens/porches, so different scenery every time.


pic fix.

i use instagram as kind of a fix when i can't blog. it's also a fun way to share little things daily that don't require a whole post.  i put together this little collage of things i've been up to the past couple weeks or so including my new dark hair.  after a month deciding if i really wanted to keep my ombre or not, i did it and i really love it.  
after almost two years with it, i just felt i needed something different.

early bloom.

(that) zara floral blouse & shorts, dv by dolce vita onya platforms c/o, uo diy clutch

not so early, a little late actually but i was able to get my hands on this blouse.  i really couldn't forget about this print.  for one, it's on almost every blog.  but it's really that good.  i caved in and started the search on eBay but i found a good deal a month ago from an extremely kind seller.  she has a lot of the most wanted things from zara.  check her store out here.  and last but not least, these shoes.  i literally took them out of the box when they arrived today, put them on and walked out the door.  the suede wedge is perfect - i can will wear them with everything.

and meet Baby, my mom's neighbor's dog.  he's already 6 months, so freakin' cute!



floral tee.

zara floral tee, bebe jeans c/o, aldo boots, vintage cardi & clutch

there was a floral tee i wanted from topshop last summer that was sold out in my size.  i was browsing through the 'last sizes' section online on zara and found this one very similar to it.  wore it to run a few errands today that included searching for a certain shade of revlon's lip butter and stocking up my freezer with my favorite thrifty's pistachio ice cream.  failed at the lip butter but succeeded with the ice cream! :9

oh yeah! dolce vita is doing a MAJOR giveaway right now!  make sure you enter!
