Blazer: Ramona West Vintage, Tights: We Love Colors

Bring on the Prepsterness! I’ve grown to love the colored tights over at We Love Colors, especially in this dark “Charcoal” hue. I felt like wearing them with nothing but a big, boxy, double-breasted blazer from Ramona West, as a dress. As well as the hugest ring I could find in my jewelry dish. Super simple.

And man, I think I sneezed about a gazillion times this past week! It’s been windy, and I think the weather change has got my sinuses all effed up. And of course, I was shooting in Orange County a few times this week. . . thank you Santa Ana winds! So yes, this week consisted of photoshoots and now that I have a free day, I’m thinking of hitting the movies!! Excited, Excited. I must see The Runaways!

Blazer and Belt: Vintage, Silk Tank: Bebe, Shorts: Ann Taylor

The beautiful weather has got me pulling out all sorts of Spring colors from pastel blues to pretty pinks. They really pop in these photos! And I’ve never found mixing textures and patterns wrong, so I went with my pinstriped blazer and tweed tailored shorts. This time of year has always been my favorite! Here’s a collage of some of my favorite photos that will give you that pastel-fix I’m sure you’ve been craving!

Jeans: Hudson Jeans (Baby Boot), Blouse: Vintage, Shoes: Banana Republic

I feel so Anne of Green Gables with a modern twist. My vintage blouse definitely would be Anne approved! I clearly remember her love of anything satin and frilly. Paired it with my new Hudson Jeans in the Baby Boot style! I love the flap back pockets and slim fit. Did I mention they are super super soft and probably make anyone’s butt look amazing? I’m head over heels in love with them. Thanks again to Hudson for sending them on over!

But seriously, ever since I stumbled upon the novel Anne of Green Gables last week, I knew I had to read it again. I have once again been sucked into her world filled with beautiful natural surroundings. I’ve grown to love her “kindred spirit” despite her flaws. I’d transport to Green Gables right now if I could…

Jumpsuit: Mango, Shoes: Via Spiga

I scored this MNG jumpsuit during my stay in Malaysia. I love it’s slouchy, trouser-y feel. A blouse and trouser thrown into one. It’s easy, I like pieces that are just throw it on and go go go. Coolness guaranteed. I’m loving Jade Green nails as well. It’s sort of an instant mood lifter too lol! And thank you Canon for giving me some clear, crisp snapshots :)) Still trying to get a hang of the darn thing! I hope everyone is having an awesome week so far. I’ve just been driving all over the place, hitting traffic, and getting back to reading more novels in my down time. It’s hot and sunny here, perfect “reading on the porch” weather!

Anywhoooo, here are two awesome illustrations sent to me by two really amazing artists. It must have taken so much time and effort. I really, really appreciate it girls, thank you!

This one is illustrated by Carmo, blogger and artist of Carmo Avant Chanel! Hailing all the way from Lisbon, she shows some raw, natural talent by getting down even the smallest details on paper!
