this tiny suitcase held 2 weeks of outfits that got me from the beach of San Sebastian, Spain to the countryside of Oxford and then to a wedding in London. Notice my ever present Aviator Nation sweatshirt.
Proper English pub and garden in Oxford. Stay tuned for a post on my Schott Perfecto jacket.
Making a dance party in London.
Morning after a dance party in London.
Of course I was having too much fun to remember to get a decent amount of pics taken of my fanciest dresses at the formal events I went to. At the wedding I wore the above Catherine Malandrino butterfly dress.
I know less is more but sometimes more is just right. I don’t know if it is because my brain is always going a mile a minute that I am visually drawn to mixed patterns but something about all the contrasting lines is appealing to me. I paired an abstract maxi dress from H+M with an aztec inspired printed tank from OBEY worn with a vintage wooden belt and my Angie ankle boots from Koolaburra. I have a printed chiffon scarf tied to my bag from Ashley Tyler who makes very special hand crafted items.
I wore my Owlita feather earrings and my new eagle ring c/o Forever 21 with my silver owl ring. Suddenly, I am amassing quite a bird ring collection. I think if you find yourself with three of something it is the start of a collection. I am as trendy as the next girl or boy with a pile up of friendship bracelets on my wrist in time for summer. From top to bottom: Shashi, gift, gift, Forever 21 and Shashi. Shashi is a new favorite of mine. The bracelets all have sparkly charms and easy closures to take off for showering. I appreciate some functionality in fashion. It was still chilly out so I have my rainbow striped socks c/o Sock It To Me, so cute, right?
It was a grey and rainy spring day that B and I took a trip up to Yale so he could check out the open house for photography. Yale wasn’t anything like it is on Gilmore Girls, it seemed just like any other college town. What do I know from Ivy League?

Oh my gosh, it was not that long ago when it was super bright and crispy out. I could get away with being warm enough in just some layers and a wool cape. Soon I will go on a much needed break down south to Florida for 3 of my favorite things: Family, Sunshine and Thrifting.
These shots are from a beautiful day in December. Not totally sure what I have on other than my amazing Robert Geller (menswear) cape over another cape-like shawl c/o Urban Outfitter’s. I have no idea what else is under there but the leggings are super-thick c/o Kai-Aakmann. My Angie ankle boots c/o Koolaburra and the softest fur felt Trilby c/o Kangol. My over sized 70’s shades are c/o 55DSL. My YSL Muse bag, Adrienne Landau scarf and Echo of the Dreamer bird ring & crystal ring complete the look.
