Feelings: Croatia

In a few days I'll be frolicking along the Adriatic Sea, something I've longed to do for a long, long while.

But currently, in the present time, I'm stuck in what I like to call a packing rut. I don't know what to pack. So I decided to create a few mood boards to motivate myself... These boards are of what I envisioned 2 weeks in paradise might feel like, what I'd wear, what I'll see and how I'd feel.

So I guess I should go pack now?  

P.S. I'm currently putting together a playlist for my Adriatic adventures... this one below is the first song on my list. If you have suggestions, send them my way.

trying to look outdoorsy


You see, I'm not really the camping type. Granted, I've never actually gone camping... but we won't get into that here. I am, however, team CAMP. I've been wearing this tee all month long. It's my current obsession because it's one of those casual, cool, goes with everything tee that makes me seem all outdoorsy. Fake it 'till you make it, right?    

In other news, I'm currently working on a super exciting personal project!!! It's been a long time coming... More to come on that soon! xo

tasseled

Chloé necklace, For Love & Lemons jumper

I'm not sure why, but long necklaces have never been my thing. Maybe it's because they remind me of Notorious B-I-G, but regardless of the reason, I've never ever worn or wanted one... until now. 

The thing about long necklaces is that it can go from classy to tacky pretty quickly. So pick one that has a bit of weight. The one I'm wearing is from Chloé. I figured if I was going to pop that cherry, it might as well be with the holy grail of necklaces. 

Normally I wear this necklace with a deep v-neck or against black so it's doing all sorts of slinky things for my neckline. But you know those moments when you just need a little va-va-voom in your life? (Usually before the weekend and after days of monotonous work-wear). In case this is you too, I'm suggesting you find a sick necklace, go backless, dangle it down your back, and let it do all sorts of slinky things for your backside.

vibe with me?


These 12 tracks pretty much sum up 2014 for me. These are the songs that have been played and replayed through rough days, fun days, Spain days and sad days. Here are some high (and some low) vibes for your last hour of work on this grueling Monday.

like your birthday suit


COS dress
Guys, I'm going through a serious nude phase. 
As far as I'm concerned, there are many benefits to the birthday-suit aesthetic. 
It's versatile - it can basically do anything the LBD can. 
It's easy - think thoughtless dressing. 
It's a sure head turner - I mean, let's be honest, you look a little naked. 
But most importantly, you're always going to have a shoe that works. I generally like to keep it minimal when it comes to accessorizing a basic nude dress and aim to really knock it out of the park with a sick shoe.
Here, I went with studded black ankle boots à la Chloe.

As for the chair? That only came in black.

90s forever


H&M Denim Jacket, Calvin Klein Bralette, Vintage Levis Jean 
 
Ah, jacket season. 
I've been waiting for you for quite some time. Thank you for finally showing up. 
I snagged this jean jacket a few months ago at H&M. Yep, believe it baby - H&M. With it's embroidery slightly reminiscent of Proenza's F/W12 collection, this jacket is your basic jean jacket with a punch. And it's perfect. 
Why a jean jacket? Like, how 90s of me?
Yea, so I love the 90s. (Holler at me Lisa Frank). 
But really, it's because jean jackets are just effortless. They're not as heavy as a leather jacket and not as fancy as a blazer. They're easy. So easy to the point that pairing it with a bare face and messy hair pretty much seals the deal.
 
And let's not overlook the jeans - mom jeans are back, consider them a gift from above. 
R.I.P. camel toe.
