never without

American Rag shorts; Jeffery Campbell wedges

...a floppy hat, it seems. But what can I say? They are my weakness! Bare legs seemed appropriate given the unusually warm weather that afternoon. Consistent Fall weather patterns in Hawaii? Unheard of. Please excuse my short absence from blogging -- midterms + papers have consumed my life these past two weeks. Now introducing my latest shoe purchase: Jeffrey Campbell clog wedges. Would you believe me if I said I found them at a deeply discounted price of $50? Mega score! In the past I'd turn my nose up at mixing silver + gold jewelry together; as of late, I find no problem with it, as exhibited here. Hooray for experimenting.
Happy Halloween weekend to all of you who celebrate it & thank you to all of my readers who continually stop by and grace me with your kind words -- I really appreciate it!

STOLE my heart

Cable knit sweater with detachable fur stole - Ross; American Rag tap shorts; American Apparel thigh high socks

Channeling minimalist tendencies with solid shades and a pop of camel and candy apple red nails for unexpected splashes of color. This just may be my new favorite cardigan. I nearly died, not only because I found it at Ross Dress for Less, of all places, but when I noticed that the attached fur stole is also detachable. And for under $30, it just couldn't get any better. Cue the cable knits & fur...Fall has arrived.
Now Playing: "Voodoo Child" by Jimi Hendrix (totally would have worn this outfit to one of his concerts in the late 60's)

Flares With Flair

Slowly but surely, I'm beginning to shed my summer skin. Today's cool weather allowed me to pile on fur + this chunky knit cardi that Kash sent to me -- two items I've harbored in my closet for weeks, due to those sweltering summer months. I'm not much of a denim jeans kind of gal (think skinnies, bootcut, and the like. It's been over 9 months since I last wore a pair), so traipsing around town in these flares was a nice departure from my jeans-deprived life. Not to mention, the comfort level of these bell bottoms are pleasantly high. Pretty sure I've been converted to a jeans kind of gal after I found this pair at Ross. Well, a flare jeans gal, anyway. I'm now in hot pursuit of the next pair I can get my hands on, preferably in either a super dark wash or light wash...
