Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Kiernan Shipka

Wearing: Rosie Assoulin

Where: Wednesday screening of “The Blackcoat’s Daughter” in New York City

So no, florals for spring isn’t necessarily groundbreaking, but they are when you’re wearing them the way Kiernan is. I love that this isn’t just a floral printed dress and instead the florals are full immersed into the shape of this dress. Don’t even get us started on those straps. We love it.

Black, White, and Witchy

Hat – Nordstrom / Sweater – Madewell / Dress – Aritzia

For my body type, normally this outfit wouldn’t be considered the most flattering, but I think I’ve now reached this point in my life with my style that I will still wear what I want to wear regardless of the fact. Generally, for those that are more petite, anything close to a maxi (ish) dress can be a little hard to pull off, but you all know how much I love pairing my white and black pieces. The Aritzia dress is one that I typically wear during the summer and has an open back, but since it was fall, I decided to throw a sweater on top of it and add the hat to give it more dimension. This felt like a very natural and comfortable look for me. I wore this to the office, but I could see myself wearing this for a coffee date or even a day of errands.

Nike Air Max 95 Candle

Stop what you’re doing. Look at this candle. BLESS this Nike candle and its existence. This is the greatest thing I have seen all day.

Now only if we could find a cute little holder for it to sit on…and of course, never light it ever.

Air Max Day actually falls on March 26th and to commemorate this special day, WHAT THE SHAPE released this amazing piece. These candles are available in pink, yellow, and white. We’ll take all 3, please. If you’d like to be the owner of this, you can visit their Facebook page to make a purchase.

Little Bandana

Top – Brandy Melville / Pants – Uniqlo / Bracelet – Madewell / Bandana – Mandi’s wedding / Heels – Vince Camuto

Even though it’s 2017, it’s a little silly to me that there is still this stigma to wearing all black. I would say 60-68% of my wardrobe is made up of black pieces and I’m totally fine with that. However, sometimes when I would go to work, people still have this desire to make a comment to me about going to a funeral or ask if I am unhappy that day. Why can’t I just wear black because it’s a classic color and super chic? :)

I remembered getting up this day and feeling sort of satisfied with this look. I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was missing something though and I wasn’t going to be able to walk out the door without something more. I added the bracelet. Purchased from Madewell a few years back, I still really love this piece even though it has progressively gotten “worn” over time and you can tell. At Mandi’s wedding, she gifted everyone with a welcome package, which I think is such a nice treat! I’m going to be discussing this a little bit more in an upcoming post about the five things I loved the most about Mandi’s wedding, but will provide some details here. Every guest received a jar of trail mix waiting for them in their cabin and each mason jar was wrapped with a perfect forest green bandana. Now you may remember that I went through a red bandana phase last spring. We’re still wearing it by the way! But this green one is a little bit smaller, but large enough to fit around my neck. It really was the perfect accessory to complete this look.

Would You Wear It?

Doesn’t this look like it belongs in a costume shop?! For their Spring/Summer 2017 collection, Gucci released this very quirky sandal with built-in latex socks. If you don’t mind wearing something that gives you a little bit of a plastic sheen, then this is a perfect fit. I actually would love to see this on a person for comparison, however, looking at it in a photo doesn’t make it seem so wearable, right? For a cool $1,190 USD, this can be all yours though!

Baby Pink is Back!

I’ve spent the last year consistently adding black and white pieces to my closet. I was convinced that color was dead – at least for me! That is… until this week when I discovered all of my favorite must-have wants are coming in shades of baby pink. And I’m not turning away from them. So I’m declaring it – baby pink is making a comeback this year and we are more than a little excited about it. The best part about this shade of pink is that it’s very subtle and if you want to wear a minimally styled outfit with black or white, a little pop of baby pink will do just the trick. Here are my favorite items from this week for our wishlist:

Away x Pop + Suki Luggage

Treasure Island Music Festival Look

Sweater – Madewell / Pants – Uniqlo / Scarf – Aritzia / Boots – Hunter

The last time I went to the Treasure Island Music Festival was back in 2014 and while I had a pretty decent time, I actually didn’t know if there would be an artist that I would go back for. Lo’ and behold – that group was Honne. Because seeing them once in a year isn’t enough, you have to see them twice. Treasure Island MF fell smack dab in the middle of my busy traveling season and to be honest, I could have used a weekend off, but the tickets were bought and I was committed. To make things even worse, the weather was supposed to be terrible. Now, I’ve endured a little bit of rain at Bumbershoot and at Capitol Hill Block Party even, but I have never experienced music festival rain quite like this. Honne’s set was earlier in the day right around lunch time and it was actually quite warm. This photo was taken right after their set and as you can see, I’m without jacket layer. Shortly after this, the clouds came in, the rain started pouring, and things didn’t get better from there. Artists and bands were canceling for the day because of the weather and/or being delayed despite the music festival telling attendees that the festival would continue onwards in rain or shine. I had a couple of qualms with the way the festival was organized slash how things were communicated, but I also have been there so I can cut them a little bit of slack too. For the most part, I felt like I was pretty prepared with the outfit I had on, but the thing that saved me the most were of course, the Hunters. To this day, they are one of the best purchases I have ever made. Every time I know I’m about to go through a really difficult event with finicky weather, these are my go-to’s and I would strongly recommend them to just about anyone.

Blanket Scarves in Boston

Dress – Azalea / Cardigan and Scarf – Aritzia

I knew I was really pushing my limits when I decided to take these boots with me to Boston. For the most part, I can last a whole day in these, but if I’m forced to walk a city for an entire day? Not so much. I was exploring Boston with a friend of mine and we did my “perfect” day – starting with brunch, shopping, and a stroll among a row of brownstones. There’s something about them that I find to be very magical and charming. Maybe it’s because growing up in Seattle, we just didn’t have anything quite like that. In a previous post, I already talked about the Boston Public Library and here’s the outfit we wore to check it out! I truly did not know how amazing it would be until I saw it in person with my own eyes. It’s the place that you know you could probably sit at for hours and be completely content. When it comes to dressing up in different cities, I’m usually a hit or miss. For a fall day and a week that had been mostly filled with showers, wearing this without a jacket was a gamble. I can admit that I haven’t quite nailed the game of layering. I’ve had this blanket scarf for a couple of years now and it’s one of my favorite fall staples. The larger one I have is from Oak + Fort, but I like having two that are in different colors and two different sizes because it means that sometimes one makes more sense for an outing than the other.

Nike’s Air Presto Ultra “Lemon”

Are these not the most darling Nikes you’ve ever seen?! They are the perfect shade of “Lemon Drop” and because they are so sunshine-y, we’re naturally gravitating towards these. Fun fact: my nickname from my best friend used to be Funshine (after the Care Bear!) Now, I’m not saying that it will be easy pairing these with outfits, but they certainly will add a whole lot of spunk to them. It really wouldn’t stop me from purchasing them.

“Lemon” will be sold for about $160 USD.

Boston Bundled

Sweater – Madewell / Denim – Forever21 / Scarf – Aritzia

I could never be the girl that could be content in a t-shirt and jeans. Believe me, I’ve tried. I would probably be able to cut my daily routine by 65% if I could just throw on that kind of an outfit every day. However, just when I think it’s possible, I look in the mirror and always find that something is missing. In personality, I’m not a very girly girl, but in terms of style and what my closet looks like, I am very much a girly girl. So yes, I could have paired this sweater and jeans with a pair of sneakers or flats, but then I wouldn’t have felt like myself. Instead, if I’m going to wear a pretty basic outfit, there needs to be a bit of a statement piece with it. Instead of one, I chose two. I wanted these boots that you’ve all seen me wear a lot, but are a little bit pointy and suede, which adds more texture to this look. Secondly, I added in my Aritzia diamond blanket scarf – functional, chic, still in the same color family as the sweater, and adding just enough warmth for a fall day in Cambridge. I didn’t need to go on a shopping trip while I was on a work trip in Cambridge, but the opportunity presented itself and that’s where I picked up this adorable sweater. I actually don’t have very many pieces in pink and I was worried that this wouldn’t work with the rest of my closet, but it’s a piece that I get quite a few compliments on. Apparently, it works really well with my skin tone? Additionally, it’s also just very cozy and great for layering. This sweater was already on sale and I was able to get a “student” discount on it. Wins all around!

Valentino

Sometimes we include photos of collections that may not always be the most wearable, but there’s something that catches our eye and then we just can’t stop thinking about it!
