Aztec Summer Flare


I was lucky enough to find this aztec-like gem at Crossroads Trading Co in Portland on Hawthorne! You may say it was love at first sight. I must admit though, I was intimidated by the back straps. Believe it or not, it took me something like 20 minutes to make it look the way it's pictured below. There's a lot of adjusting but it was well worth it in the end. In fact, this funky-filled dress isn't complete without it. 

Easy to pair with any sandal or flip flop, you're likely to match this colorful dress one way or another. Super light and perfect for summer, this dress is something I'll have to make an effort NOT to wear every single day.

Monday Funday - Safari Edition




Let's get right into it. How cute is this Anthro giraffe cardigan?

Recently found at Plato's Closet, I knew I wouldn't have a chance to find one like it ever again! It's gently used, has a tiny hole and stain and had a button missing, but that didn't stop me from buying this adorable masterpiece. Paired with nearly khaki-looking shorts at just the right length, I knew this was a match made in heaven. Simple, cute and suitable for work all rolled into one.

Fun fact: Character Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario) from Pretty Little Liars was spotted in the same sweater! Preppy meets cute is definitely Spencer's thing:


Brands:

Belt - Forever 21
Tights - Forever 21
Shorts - H&M
Sweater - Field Flower by Anthropologie

I want to believe. Cat edition.

Duh nu nu nu nu nuuuu (X-Files Theme song playing)

I love the X-Files and cats, (duh) so what better sweatshirt than the "I want to believe"-with-cats-on-a-flying-saucer sweatshirt?! Ordered from Etsy, this trendy sweatshirt is super warm and fuzzy and fun to layer with a funky collared shirt underneath. The grungy, 90's looking plaid jeans make for an interesting, casual outfit for any quirky fashionista.
