Go away

This shirt is so appropriate today. I had to battle my way through disgruntled smelly civilians on the train and I am more than ready for scientists to invent an invisible bubble to wear around my body. I need some kind of B.O. repellent. Or people repellent. I don’t like people.

Haha, my face.

Yes, I am wearing a sleep shirt in public. As if the vegan leather jacket wasn’t douchey enough. Just go with it.

Have a cool Wednesday.

I’ve been looking forward to layering my peplum tops over full skirts. The thin cotton material in this shirt takes the shapes of the subtle pleats in the skirt when it lays over it. It gives the illusion of a dress with a thick white hem. I paired it with my leather jacket since it’s still a little chilly despite the Houston sun. This look is very Wendy inspired, a person whom I admire and take fashion cues from often. Also, I totally fangirled when she responded to and retweeted one of my tweets last week. Yes, thank you, thank you.

Have a great Tuesday and thank you for reading.

Summer sets in

When I first created this blog, I had a vision of writing posts in the early morning with a cup of coffee in hand. It’s nice to see myself fulfilling that vision this morning, with the addition of Kings of Convenience playing in the background, a new favorite of mine.

I’ve been on the hunt for a leather jacket since fall. I wanted something lightweight enough to wear in the spring, and simple enough to be a staple piece.

I’ve been admiring this vegan leather jacket from American Eagle since it came out in their fall 2013 collection. It was always a bit out of my price range, so when it went on sale and AE offered an additional 25% off sale items, I jumped at the opportunity.

I love the quilted detail on the pockets, and the cut on the neckline makes it look tough while the slightly cropped fitted shape is feminine and perfect for dresses and skirts.

Vegan Leather Jacket: American Eagle
Dress: My Michelle (similar cut and color)
Shoes: Modcloth
Necklace: H&M

I paired the jacket with a white lace dress and a necklace that has a similar metal finish as the hardware on the jacket. I also fixed my one-size-too-big wedges by purchasing heel inserts by Fab Feet. I was skeptical at first because they aren’t very thick and there is still a visible space between my heel and the back of the shoe, as seen in my photo. However, the inserts work wonderfully! They noticeably stopped my heel from slipping out of my shoe after walking around for hours. I am very impressed.

What are your favorite staple pieces in your closet?

Have a great Sunday and thank you for reading.
