Leather/Crochet







Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Olivia / Lulus Dress / French Connection Jacket / Celine Sunglasses
The crochet top and flowyness of this dress paired with the motto, biker feel of this jacket draw me in every time. I love the contrast of graceful femininity with a touch of edge. This is the first real leather jacket I've ever owned, and my gosh, does it feel like a different world. It is worth the investment if you wear leather jackets a lot. Who doesn't?!

Re-wear




Dittos Jeans / Saint Laurent Heels / Triple Graces "Ritas" sunglasses / Lulus jacket (similar) 
I wore this trench this past Spring over cutoffs, a tee and birkenstocks, and I was determined to re-wear it in a more Fallish fashion. I threw it over jeans and a black top, but it still felt a little "blah," so I amped it with my favorite heels and it felt just right.

October






We've had some divine weather here in Miami, and I couldn't be more thankful. I woke up to let me dog outside, and I screamed when I felt chilly. Could this be real?? First week of October?! A miracle from God Himself! I was so excited to get outside and I wanted to wear all my Fall items in case it never happened again! This vintage Dior blazer is one of my favorite pieces, as I found it hidden in a little NYC street market- and its had my heart since, so it felt appropriate for such joy.

The Usual





French Connection Leather Skirt / Chicwish Blouse / Celine sunglasses / JustFab booties / Hermes Bracelet / Stila lips in " olivia"
When I began preparing this post, I thought to myself, "my readers visit this blog daily and this feels so plain. Nothing they'd want to see." But then I thought, being authentic is something I strive for, and this is me, everyday. In several forms, but I look like this Mon-Fri. Weekends are for cutoffs & bathing suits.

Gunmetal




Shinymix necklace / Sugar Love Boutique Dress / steve madden espadrilles / Gucci sunglasses via SBG / Hermes Bracelet / Stila stay all day liquid lipstick in beso / Balenciaga bag
This dress called for dainty heels and rose pink lipstick, but as sweet and frilly as it is, I wanted to play that completely opposite and add some grunge to create balance. Chunky silver necklaces like this one have become an obsession of mine. I used to be a gold type of girl, but I'll take gunmetal and silver any day now.
