Totally Tuesday

 Bejeweled top and patterned pants: H&M, Flats: Miz Mooz (℅), Accessories: Love Me Curtis Kulig x UO beanie, Lionette and Alexis Bittar bracelets, Nike FuelBand, La Mer x Target leopard wrap watch, Thrifted Coach Willis Bag

Keeping things simple as I work the 9-5. There's a lot of paperwork in my work life lately so while sitting for most of the day is not the most inspiring, it definitely gives me excuse to dress casually and comfortably.

Easy Easter

 Jacket: Zara (old), Top: Aritzia, Shorts: Madewell (old), Sneakers: Keds, Accessories: Lionette necklace, La Mer watch (℅), Nike FuelBand, Coach Penny purse via Ruelala

The husband and I have been going at full speed for a lot of things we needed to take care of so we played hooky and had an easy Easter. We ordered food, took care of chores inside the house and watched some television (venturing outside only to get groceries and do a little bit of home-shopping). While it's not exactly the way one typically celebrates Easter, it totally worked in our favor this weekend.

How was your weekend?

Tucked

Top: Unknown, Jeans: Forever 21, Espadrilles: Tommy Hilfiger (thrifted), Accessories: H&M necklace, Lionette and Alexis Bittar lucite bracelet, La Mer x Target leopard wrap watch, Ettika tassel bracelet (c/o), Clare Vivier fold-over clutch 

The simple act of tucking in a shirt can really change up the vibe of an outfit. I've owned this simple, white summer top for ages but I always wear it un-tucked. The loose structure felt more boho in style so I wanted that type of feeling in my outfits. 

For a change, I tucked this top into my jeans. Instantly, my outfit felt more structured. Though my accessories still read eclectic, my outfit is definitely more classic. 


Have you styled something differently from how you typically wear things?

With This Jacket

 T-shirt: Men's Gap, Beaded jacket: Thrifted, Jeans: Forever 21, Heels: Prabal Gurung x Target heels (old), Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, Forever 21 necklace, Big Buddha handbag (℅)

I've been itching to find a vintage or vintage-like beaded/sequin jacket for some time. I looked in thrift/vintage stores and on sites like Etsy or eBay but, the ones I liked were above my price point or the ones that were reasonably priced weren't exactly "right." Imagine my delight when I was on a random errand run this week and I came across the one I'm wearing here hidden among the racks...for only $14. (Woo!)

I adore the creamy white color and the pattern of the bead work. The simple silhouette of the jacket makes it classic to wear it through any season. The jacket certainly gives my casual outfit more interest and texture without being over done. 


While my hunt may still continue, at least I feel satisfied for now with my thrifted/vintage search.

Wednesday Whim - The Essentials

Do you remember the early days of Youtube vloggers and the "what's in my bag" posts? Those were (and still are!) some of my favorite type of videos. Call me nosy but, I find it fascinating what people carry around as part of the essentials. So when I came across this site (thanks to this other site) where 100 creative types (bloggers, editors, designers, artists, etc.) had their essential bag contents photographed, I was immediately immersed in intrigue. You can sum up what kind of person someone is by what they carry. The contents are photographed in that ever-so-effortless-but-very-constructed-composition way. 

The real goal of the site was to showcase Daniel Eckler's Kickstarter to build "A Better Backpack" (developed by MIJLO). The site helped achieve the fundraising goal to construct a pack that will "last a lifetime."  The concept derives from the the fact that the runway-to-rack process is happening faster and faster, which feeds a temporary and disposable consumerism cycle. MIJLO doesn't feel that fashion needs to be disposable in that way and owning something classic, like this backpack, will help change the cycle.
