HotLanta

I'm finally getting around to posting these long overdue pictures from my trip to Atlanta for the wedding at the end of last month. My family and I stayed in the GORGEOUS Chateau Elan & Wine Vineyard where the wedding was being held. During the days leading up the the main event my sib's and I frolicked around the grounds, sampling not only their amazing spa but the seven restaurant's that were scattered in the Chateau, all while simultaneously celebrating my birthday. 24 feels like 23 to me! For some reason I always expect there to be some huge shift in my aura when my birthday rolls around. Perhaps others can see it and I can't? Regardless, as much as I love GA I will never get used to the sweltering heat. I would have jumped into that fountain behind me if it wasn't for my brother holding me back. Wearing a black velvet top probably wasn't the best idea...
 For the big 2-4 I wore my favorite vintage Dolce & Gabbana wedges, BooHoo skater scuba skirt, thrifted top and earrings, shades from the Brooklyn Flea and a Burberry Hobo bag.
 Hope you enjoyed. Oh and Happy Hump Day!

Precious Metals

Precious Metals
 

I enjoy those rare moments when silver and gold look magnificent together. I want to definitely try my hand at more metallic pieces this summer. Silver especially. I've had my eye on the silver Pivotal wedge from Asos for a while now. Its crazy how humans can make predictions about the future that actually come true. I remember watching Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century when I was in elementary school and marveling at their 'futuristic' get ups. Everything was spandex, and shiny with bold bright and metallic colors. How did Disney know!?! The only thing they were really missing were the cut-outs and transparent pieces. Could anyone have predicted wearing less clothing would become the norm?...Sorry, dumb question.

Lazy (sun) Days

 Some quick shots of one of my outfits from last weekend in Savannah, GA. I will never get tired of the romantics in that town. Being there makes you want to be in love. Yes, even you. 
Wearing Asos pencil skirt, La Rok top & vintage Dolce & Gabbana sandals.

Diamond Life

Diamond Life

Having a couple summer uniforms is very important to me. You guys already know I like to keep things simple. During the humid months that are quickly approaching, simplicity will be my best friend. How do you do this without being basic you may be asking yourself? Never put on anything that doesn't have character in its details. From tiny things like your earrings to your shoes, spice it up. I used to overcompensate a lot with my outfit choices by doing what we call 'too much'. Trying to stand out and look as different as possible, while at the same time trying to be part of the 'hipster' trend so many of my friends were into. I know, I was a hypocrite. Thankfully one day I looked in the mirror and saw a fraud staring back at me. Brought me to my senses with a quickness. Fast-forward to the outfit I put together for you lovely people. Easy staples that can be interchanged a trillion ways. High-waisted shorts, sexy sandals and killer shades (make sure you know the right shape for your face!). You literally can't go wrong.
