// lounging about with a new read (yet to be finished) //
this happens to be a super short recap of life lately (through instagram snapshots). i have weeks worth of photos built up and ready to be posted, so get ready for an influx of instagrams during the last few weeks of fall.
// a life-changing meal of fried fish and potato wedges //
// pumpkin patching with the little brother a long, long time ago //
// a little glimpse into fall decorations //
// caramel apples with butterfingers and chocolate drizzle = wow //
// saying goodbye to new york before heading back to georgetown //
// inslee continues to be my ultimate favorite //
time and time again i have posted about my favorite blogger on here, because her outfits are that good. go to the search bar on this site and look up jules… i promise you that you’ll find one or two (or four) snippets about her. yeah it’s a lot, but it’s because her style is really that good. every outfit looks amazing, but she never looks as if she’s trying too hard. let me tell you, this is impressive… there have been times where i wok on pulling off that whole carefree look, but it takes work. too casual, you’re looking a bit messy, and too put together, you’re trying too hard. she’s mastered this conundrum, and if you don’t agree or haven’t heard of her, these photos should prove it.
there’s an obvious theme here… clearly i’m feeling the whole black and gold combination. so on this glorious wednesday morning, these happen to be a few of the things that i’m loving.
this watch is the perfect mix of masculine and feminine elements // i’m not a big fan of bags (only because i never carry them) but i love this one // i snatched these earrings at j.crew on sale, so that may or may not have made my day // i SWEAR by this mascara… it’s lifechanging (and yeah that might be dramatic, but it’s true) // my go-to shoes for day, work, and night, plus both colors are great and they’re on sale almost everywhere // this ring is what i’ve been looking for my whole life without even realizing it
last night i spent a decent amount of time hunting the internet for images of this year’s met gala. of course there were a ton of dresses i loved (and some i didn’t), so many dresses in fact, that i had about thirty i wanted to post on here before i decided to cut down. i could have easily just shown some of the looks from my favorite ladies, but after seeing blake and ryan last night i decided to take a different approach. let alone the fact that i love the two of them and think they seem like one of the greatest couples, they glowed last night. maybe a little dramatic, but seriously they looked so good, and the way he was looking at her in those photos. bam. even more obsessed with them now. so without further ado, here’s a glimpse into my favorite couples from this year’s met gala.
i’ve actually lost count of how many times i’ve written about sincerely, jules on here. it’s well known that i’m kind of sorta obsessed with her style, and i totally own up to it. she is the definition of california cool, and i spend a good time of decision-making when it comes to outfits trying to figure out what would jules do. she happens to have her own line of clothing, all t-shirts and sweatshirts, and i love them. so when it was announced that her new line would be coming out, i anticipated its arrival like a kid on christmas. now that it’s here i’m kind of in love and wish i could pull off the whole mini skirt wearing, skateboard toting look, but i know that’s not happening… but that’s what dreaming’s all about, right?
samudra bags are the best // the go-to pair of sunglasses // keep calm and wear lipstick // a camera that would be great for taking some artsy cherry blossom pictures (if they ever bloom) // a small bag for someone who doesn’t like to carry any bag // a dress that looks as comfy as pajamas // a BAM pair of summer sandals // a hat i wish i could wear
the weather here in d.c. has been absolutely insane… one day it seems like it’s about to get nice and warm, and the next it’s snowing and we have a delay in classes. i’m holding out hope that spring weather is right around the corner, and it should be, but the wait has me imagining summer. so until the spring temperatures arrive, i’ll be looking up warm weather clothes and pretending i’m in some tropical place.
last year when i wrote about my favorite outfits at the oscars i happened to focus on the vanity fair party, and this year i’m doing the same. at this point i feel like best-dressed of the oscars is all over the internet, and even though i may pick an outfit that isn’t as “popular” as others, it was probably already seen. i’m acting as if no one has seen outfits from the vanity fair party (which most likely isn’t true at all), but don’t blame me for trying to be a little different! i love to see what people wear afterwards, and i also imagine what i would wear if i ever went… not that i would ever be invited, but still. before i get into my outfit picks, i’d just like to mention that:
- the selfie that ellen took was amazing. i mean seriously, that was next level.
- jennifer lawrence tripping (again) was perfect.
- john travolta messing up idina menzel’s name had me laughing for longer than i’d like to admit.
- brad pitt passing out plates when the pizza was being handed out seemed so normal.
- the whole dancing with celebrities montage while pharrell performed “happy” was surreal.
- some of the comments during the red carpet coverage were ridiculous, but completely serious… “these people have been out here since 9 am today, they haven’t showered in days.” like what? what does that even mean? how does the commentator know that?
- pink’s tribute to the wizard of oz had me more than a little emotional. definitely had a flashback to childhood…
- emma watson and joseph gordon-levitt make quite the duo.
- lupita’s speech made me tear up.
- frozen won and all was right in the world.
there are so many different parts of these outfits that i love, and am tempted to stalk half of these looks on their respective websites. that actually is probably my biggest issue when it comes to following fashion bloggers… i find these outfits and get a small obsession with them, and then i go to the websites of the stores where they were purchased and watch the items like a hawk. basically sit there and wait for them to go sale. so if any of you want to be like me (which i don’t recommend), check out some of these bloggers!
