What I Wore: Bossy (Print & Nails)

what I wore: bodysuit – dkny (thrifted), skirt – nina piccalino (thrifted), platforms – forever21, nails – pistol polish in bulletproof

I have been very excited to get my September PISTOL polishes in the mail (see August here) and they did not disappoint! I’m obsessed with the shade shown (called bulletproof) because it’s teal-ish navy that only gets darker with the coats applied. I haven’t seen another color like it so props to my girl LT for conceptualizing!

What I Wore: Long & Short

what I wore: skirt & necklace – mom’s, blouse – potter’s house, heels – bcbg

My mom is moving and gave me a few things she just couldn’t hold onto anymore, including this skirt. I’ve been so into maxi skirts & dresses so I wanted to wear it immediately. I thought it was a nice spin on wearing black and tying the top made it feel current.

What I Wore: Tied Up & Blue

what I wore: skirt – old navy, chambray shirt – levi, leopard flats – gap, earrings – mae’s, bun – sock bun via
I love the look of a tied button-up and long skirt. As I said, I’ve been so into maxi for this exceptionally mild winter we’ve been enjoying. It’s a great way to get away with not wearing tights but not look too summery. It also disguises the fact that I’m super-comfy wearing flats!

What I Wore: Muted

(what I wore: skirt & platforms -forever21, blouse – vintage, sunnies – target)
I hate to even think the words, much less type them because I’m afraid of jinxing it…but we’ve been having a mild winter. I hope I’m not cursed to endure below freezing temps now! I know it’s not over! That said, dressing for 30s-60s is so much easier and more fun than dressing for 10s-20s. You do need layering and coats but you can still dress in normal clothes instead of fleece-everything. One thing I love/hate about this skirt is it’s so long, it covers the 6 inch platforms I am wearing underneath, making me look uber tall. However, you do have to wear 6 inch platforms to make the skirt work.
I hope you have a wonderful (and perhaps warm?) weekend!

Looking Forward to Fall

Ok. Officially. It is too hot. I’ve given up hope that it will ever cool down. I’m thinking we will have to bring sweats and leggings to Italy where the high is a balmy 82 and the low is a frigid 60. If fall ever comes, here are a few things I look forward to wearing.
