business colorful

My best friend was in town for yet another NKOTBSB adventure - but this time, we didn't spend 7 days on a road trip and decided to spend a little time in the city. One evening (after I had to work all day) we grabbed some sushi at a cute little spot in the East Village. Knowing that I was headed out after a long workday, I pieced something together that would work for day and night.

I had to snap some shots of my bestie, because after all, I can't be best friends with somebody that doesn't have an awesome sense of style too:

a love note to brandy

Oh Brandy Melville. You took my heart least year when I was in Florence, Italy - you decided to play NKOTBSB while I was in your store and that's all I needed to become your biggest fan. While your brand is based around Americana, skulls, Bob Dylan, and really really soft fabric, I can't say I have anything against it. In fact, I'm madly in love with you.

Your relaxed fits (with most pieces being one size fist most) and neutral color palettes are just another feature that I adore about you. You never try too hard but you're still so damn cool. The fact that your only stores in America are in New York and LA make you feel exclusive, but your availability online makes you that much better. 

By the way, did I mention that your fabric is really SUPER soft? 

I love you, Brandy.

Don't these edgy Filomenas House earrings look fabulous with such a feminine, relaxed look?

park days

I wore these outfits to the park over a weekend in June - I totally forgot about these photos! If they don't inspire you to get out in the sun this weekend, I don't know what would. There aren't many things that say summer like rompers and sun dresses. 

The dress is from somewhere in Ohio - but I forget where (I have worn it only a couple times)
Belt - Forever21

Romper - Thrifted

lady in lace

 One of the hottest Saturdays of the summer was of course the day I insisted on going to the Brooklyn Flea market! Instant blankets of sweat covered and dripped down your body as you strolled through the city and ventured into the overheated subway, but it was all worth it! 

A few days before, I had gone out without sunglasses and was desperate for a new pair. Thankfully St. Marks in the East Village has a plethora or street vendors that push hella cheap shades on you and a negotiated this floral pair for $4. The incredible ring was made by a very dear friend and given to me. Its one of my very favorite pieces.
