spring blooms

to me, nothing says spring quite like beautiful, bright flower blooms.. the greenery, the sweet smell, the vibrant petals.. it all makes me excited for warmer weather and sunny skies and some much-needed color outside my windows!

spring blooms

so i enlisted the help of my good judy, vivienne, to show off some pastel, flowery separates that also just scream spring!

coffee break

amidst the rush of christmas shopping, inworld and irl.. online and in brick and mortar stores.. i decided that i needed a midday coffee break. to refuel, re-energize, regroup.. get my head back in the game, so i could shop shop shop some more~

coffee break

as you may or may not know, i am a *coffee fiend*. i just can’t function without a cup (or three) a day, and nothing keeps me going better than a strong, hot, sweet cuppa joe. the break is admittedly nice, but i can’t dally for too long or else i’ll miss all the good sales, and that just can’t happen!

dress me up

i really enjoy doing look book type posts. at least, that’s what i’m calling them! several looks at once, with a vague sort of theme to them. not only is it fun to style myself up three different ways, but it also shows off more of the awesome stuff that’s out there.. *and* i get to blabber on about what i’m wearing even more than i usually do! it’s win-win-win~

so! three dresses, all in teal and pink. and begin!

this look, to me, is definitely my pretty in punk aesthetic. i absolutely love pairing soft, girly floral patterns like in this tres blah dress, with the more structured look of a leather jacket (from amitomo) and strapped, chunky-heeled boots (by phedora). i added in some cutesy elements of my favorite things with this cat-ear headband + hair combo from truth && a sailor moon inspired bag by cosmic dust, and i think it all works for a funky, more casual look.

this second look is definitely much more on the sexier side of things. a cute skin-tight dress in teal worn with a cropped denim jacket on top (both by blueberry) paired with some super hot knee-high reign boots is almost effortlessly sexy. it all looks so good together no matter what color combo you go with (of which there are a ton, as is usual for blueberry’s things!) and you could totally wear tights or stockings to have an even more layered look. i added in touches of hot pink with a zenith clutch (which would make this look perfect for a date night!) and a big statement maxi gossamer pendant.. and a not-so-typical lip color from glam affair to try and add in a bit of a darker feel to it.

in this last look, i went full on flirty feminine. it all started with this adorable tee*fy dress, in this lovely colorful leafy pattern, and i added a studded addams bolero on top just for some extra coverage.. autumn winds get chilly, y’know! these knee-high phedora sandals came in a color that matched *perfectly*, and the jewelry from the sugar garden and katat0nik add in some extra color and some extra edge that’s just how i roll.

i really love all three of these looks. they’re all definitely *me* with a spin on each!
