Blast from the past


Ahhh...life before In the Blue happened. After oogling over fashion blogs since 2008, I decided to take the leap and just do it. Looking at these pictures makes me hate myself for chopping my locks off...I miss them oh so much! Lesson learned, I don't love short hair on me. I love reminiscing through pictures, its like reliving a moment forever trapped in time.

Style Icon

While thirfting a few months ago, I picked up a book called How to be Lovely, The Audrey Hepburn way of Life. Ever since then I have grown a deep love and appreciate for her, and decided to see her in action {act}. My favorite movie of Audrey's is Sabrina {its on netflix, go watch it now!}. I put together my interpretation of her style, clean lines with an emphasis on the details {allowing for you to shine, not your clothes}.


"It seems to me that it is within the reach of every woman to develop a similar individuality of style by learning to know herself" - Audrey Hepburn

Fall forward

Gap sweater {old $10} | Old Navy rockstar jeans {old $19} loving this color - on sale! | Forever 21 bag & loafers {old $32, $22} loving this pair! | Goodwill belt {$1} | Forever 21 necklace {recent $4.80} Target rings {recent on sale $6}

I happen to love brown + black. It's the perfect neutral palette and definitely puts me in the mood for Fall weather. I had a touristy moment today, I saw Harpo Studios {The Oprah Winfrey Show} and literally freaked out! I've watched the show since middle school. Unfortunately, I left my camera card in my laptop and couldn't document this occasion {I will be going back, ha}. What's a camera good for with no memory card? 

Happy Tuesday!

Coral & Lacey


I've always been into experimenting with my nail polish and I love sporting color blocked nails. For an extra pop I added glitter. This is the perfect way to keep summer at your fingertips as you transition into Fall.


Nail Polish:
Sally Hansen Extreme Wear in Coral Reef & Lacey Lilac {$2.89}
Essence Clear Glitter {$0.79}

Do you have any favorite nail polish combo's?

P.S. Head over to American Eagle for some amazing deals {additional 40% of clearance} and free shipping! I made a few purchases that you shall shortly see.

Cropped

Gap jeans {old $13} H&M sweater {old $15} Zara flats {recent $20} Old Navy bag {old $15} Nordstrom Rack earrings {$21)

I have to admit I am not a fan of Summer, because I just don't know how to dress myself. My favorite time of the year is Fall and most of all, clothes for the Fall season. I'm pretty excited that Summer is coming to end {slowly}. 

Any season a particular favorite of yours?

Dotted

Forever 21 top {recent $6.50} similar style here | Forever 21 shorts {old $20} | TOMS shoes {£35} | Forever 21 bag {old $35} | Nordstrom Rack earrings {recent on sale $21}

How it wears: 
Top: Runs a little large, but if you like the baggy look I advise sticking to the size you usually wear and if you want it to be a little more form fitted than size down.
Shorts: True to size; however, it will stretch and loosen as you wear it. Very comfortable.
TOMS shoes: The comfiest pair of shoes you will ever buy, and very versatile. They run true to size.  

I would call this attire sight seeing perfection for a hot humid day in the sun with lots of walking.
And I would call this view: utterly beyond the top
