I normally wear neutral based (or completely black) outfits, but ever since I got this adorable Strokes inspired tee and these pineapple printed espadrilles I've been loving the pop of pink they bring to my wardrobe.

vintage jacket, thrifted jeans, belt, and backpack, Target top, Unnown sneakers
Ever since I got this vintage Levi's jacket from Atlas Clothing, I've been personalizing it with the button pins and patches I pick up. I came across the Made by Laney Etsy shop and I immediately wanted everything I saw. Laney's t-shirts and patches completely satisfy my music obsession with so many creative designs featuring various song titles of The Strokes and other amazing musicians like Arctic Monkeys and Mac DeMarco. I love the personal and arts-and-crafts look each item has.
For the month of May, Laney is donating half of all profits to her local animal shelter and you can use the coupon code '20OFF' at check out for 20% off your order! So, make sure and check her shop out!

The temperature in Washington rarely dips below 45. Sure there's a bit of rain, but I think I'm a little better off than my sister who has to deal with freezing temperatures and snow all winter. I'm very happy to be able to layer a flannel over a long sleeve shirt, add a scarf and call it a winter outfit.
Remember this Free People bag that I posted about a couple months ago? I finally bought it with some Christmas money and it is just as versatile and beautiful and perfect as I predicted. Basically what I'm saying is you can expect to see it in practically every outfit post from now on...

This evening I was going through photos on my phone from this past year and came across so many gems, eight of which, I am sharing here. I find myself at the end of each year wondering what I actually did with the past 365 days, so even though I can't have my camera out all the time, I'm very happy I have the opportunity to capture moments as they happen. Although photos can never encapsulate the aroma of an exceptional meal, the sound of laughter, or the feeling of excitement with a new adventure, I'm happy to have them to trigger memories of a lovely moment.
This has been a such a wonderful year full of lovely people and new adventures. I'm so thankful for the people in my life including all of you that read my blog or follow me along on Instagram. I'm happy to say one of my resolutions for this year is to create/write more meaning I will be blogging on here more and getting involved with some exciting projects!
Here's to an amazing year!

Urban Outfitters top, Kut from the Kloth jacket, Forever 21 skirt, Target tights, thrifted bag, Macy's sneakers
It's always interesting to see your personal style evolve. I remember when I was too afraid to wear scarves purely for fashion purposes in middle school and now I'm rocking a leather jacket like nobody's business. I always thought a leather jacket would be too edgy for my but lately I've been throwing some edge and teen angst into every outfit. My favorite way to do that is putting button pins on everything. Bonus points if they're Bikni Kill or feminist button pins! I found some of my favorites from the Modern Girl Blitz Etsy shop.

Naked Basics Palette, Ivona fringe jacket, It by Alexa Chung, New Look turtleneck, Free People bag, Topshop knit hat, ASOS jeans, New Look loafers
Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful this collage is? If I could just wear this outfit and tote around this Alexa Chung book forever I'd be 100% okay with that. I love the different textures each of the pieces bring to this outfit and of course, the color palette.
What are you all wishing for?

Old Navy cardigan, thrifted top and bag, H&M slacks, Converse sneakers
One morning a few months ago I decided I needed a pair of black work pants in my life. I don't know if this happens to anyone else but sometimes I get a thought like that in my head (i.e. "my life will not be complete without a pair of black work pants") and I will search and search for the perfect and affordable match. Anyway, I found these at H&M for $25 and am so, so happy with them. I love pairing these professional pants with a white t-shirt and sneakers for a casual workwear look!
