inappropriate skirt..let's do this

 Hold everything, my pup needs some kisses.

So I thought I would share how I wore this mildly inappropriate skirt to work the other day. It's just a piece of jersey and it reminds of the skirts that I see girls wearing or not really wearing on Saturday nights downtown...but I think I managed to make it a bit more professional. Well I hope so anyways. Add tights, a longer jacket (obsessed with the leather sleeves on this baby), a mildly ugly scarf (keeping hair tucked obviously) and the most adorable granny knit sweater and you're in the clear! Hint: granny knit sweaters can let you get away with anything.

Skirt, Tights: H&M, Tank: Topshop, Sweater, Scarf: Aritzia, Jacket: ZARA, Sunglasses: Karen Walker, Cuff: Mr.Dannijo, Bangles: Club Monaco and vintage

The White Blazer

While having a recent conversation with my friend Kate I expressed that I had no idea how to wear this amazing white tuxedo style blazer from Zara. It's been sitting in my closet for two months with the tag still on giving me that "I'm  too fancy to wear today, move along look". I hate when my cloths sass me in the morning. But once Kate told me how much she loves her white blazer and manages to pull it off at work it inspired me to start thinking about ways to wear it for day and night. 

Shirt: Stylemint, Jeans: Levi's, Shoes: Tory Burch, Skull Watch: ASOS, Silver Ring: Handmade by my brother

Tonight I played model for a fur event downtown. My girlfriends came, my best friend was working it and we played dress up in a room full of fur. Highlight of the night was wearing a jacket costing $86,500!!! And then casually taking it off once women and their wine got too close for comfort. Nighty night.

Tonight my best friend Emily and I made these rad rainbow cupcakes. They were pretty time consuming and since somebody kept opening up the oven took a while to bake but well worth it I'd say.

Moto Vest, Tank, Maxi Skirt: Topshop, Silk shirt: Cheap Monday, Bracelets: Dannijo, Vintage bangles, Rings: Low Luv x Erin Wasson, House of Harlow
Candy: NIBS (yesss)

This is a mixture of my favorite pieces right now (I say favorite lightly because I'll probably disagree with that statement in a week or two). But for now I have been living in this moto vest and maxi skirt. Walking is a bit of a challenge to be honest in the skirt. I have to do really fast miniature steps just to keep up with the average person, thus I usually end up looking like one of those little legged dogs...but less cute.

welcome back party

So I just wanted to start off with saying I'm so happy to be back! I didn't really go anywhere but I haven't blogged on this baby since March of last year, for reasons I can not completely figure out...It may have been boredom or maybe my lack of free time but who am I kidding it was most likely because I wasn't utilizing it as much as I truly wanted. Let me explain, I started this blog back in 2008. I wanted it to be a place where I could post about things that I found inspiring and my love of fashion...more specifically I wanted to blog about my wardrobe but for some reason I lacked the confidence to do so. Now alas I am 22 and a lot closer to having my sh** together. Don't get me wrong I'm still a self-conscious freak but I feel I have come into my own when it comes to what I like to wear and who I am. And before this turns into a Full House episode, I just want to say I hope you come along for the rad ride.
