The 70’s called…and they want their jumpsuit back. I don’t know what’s in the water, but these past few months I’ve been all about a good 70’s throwback outfit. The thing is, if you would’ve asked me what my least favorite decade was style-wise in recent years, the 70’s would’ve been my definite answer, without even a second thought. Think about it. The corduroy. The insane overuse of psychedelic prints. The feathered hair (on men especially…#nah). The rusty muted tones. The bell bottoms. Yuck!
Happy Monday everyone! Another week, another outfit. And can we talk about the view that comes along with it? Honestly, I feel like I could be wearing a garbage bag in these photos and I would still love them. This was my last shoot of the day while I was in NYC, and I couldn’t think of a more perfect place to wrap things up than with this gorgeous view of the city skyline at sunset. Thanks New York, you make me look good. 😉
Alright guys – let’s talk about this floral jumpsuit. My extreme love for it comes with a bit of a backstory (with some good ol’ nostalgia thrown in!).
When I was little (probably around 3 or 4), I went through this phase where all I wanted to wear was this little orange dress that I had. There are photos of me that probably span at least a year, where I’m literally always wearing this dress. At the beach. At home. On the playground. In the sandbox. It didn’t matter where I was or what I was doing – I just wanted to wear that orange dress. It’s funny, because around this same time period I actually claimed that my favorite color was red (despite my love for my orange dress) – so much so, that my parents bought me this book, all about this little girl Ann and how much she loved the color red.
Have you ever found a piece that you just KNEW you had to have at first glance? I mean, we’re talking some serious love at first sight here. A piece so downright you that you catch immediate inspiration for a complete outfit as soon as you see it? A piece that you fall in love with faster than a New York Minute? 😉 To me, those are the best kinds of pieces – when something about them just feels inherently you. That’s exactly what happened to me when I first found these pants at Zara. I’m always down for a classic with a little bit of a twist, and these shiny gold buttons were weird enough in the best way for me to be all about them. I actually call them my Mickey Mouse pants because the buttons are so giant!
New York, New York. City that never sleeps, my favorite city in the world, and a place I hope to eventually call home one day. Growing up in rural (South) Jersey, I was close enough to the city that I could visit often enough, but I always wanted to live there as opposed to just visiting. In fact, growing up I would BEG my mom to. Just. Freaking. Move! Can we please get out of the suburbs?! I would go in and out of Philly all the time to get my city fix, but eventually I realized that New York was calling my name – so every time I get the chance to go back and visit, I jump on it. Thank goodness for good friends who let you crash with them for free!
(These have been my go-to earrings for the past few weeks – these exact ones are currently sold out, but I’ve linked to some super similar ones below at the bottom of the post. Keep an eye out for them in the next few weeks…you’ll definitely be seeing a lot more of them!)
Hello again! I’ll be keeping today’s post short in the name of procrastination, considering the fact that it’s 11:00 the night before I’m posting this and I’m about 2 seconds from passing out. 😉 Whoops! Sometimes the week just gets away from you…can anyone else relate?!
Now I know that everyone and their mother who writes a blog is posting all about sweater weather, over the knee boots, pumpkin spice lattes, and the like – but I’m wrapping up September over here with one more Summer worthy outfit. Although we finally did experience a weather shift here in Phoenix (and I couldn’t be more pleased…it’s actually not sweltering when I wake up!), it’s definitely still warm enough for some good old satin shorts.
Ah, la vie en rose. Who doesn’t know (and love) that old classic? I may or may not have listened to it the whole time I wrote this post (definitely did). I know that technically “la vie en rose” translates to life in pink, but we’re gonna take the “rose” portion a little more on the literal side today, because let me tell ya – the fact that embroidery has come back in a big way this year has got me pumped. I used to be the queen of all things floral when I worked at Anthro during my college days, and I’m pleased to say that this ever-growing embroidery trend has allowed to find my love for them once again. Embroidery is great because it’s such an easy way to add a special little pop to even the most simple of outfits like mine – and who doesn’t love a little extra something special?
Exhibit A, below. You have what would otherwise be a pretty normal denim jacket – except now there’s a bunch of rose embroidery on it! Automatically cooler? Probably. It goes from a staple to a statement. Same goes for pretty much all of the products I’ve linked to directly below – they’re all pretty standard staple piece across the board, until you factor in the rose appliqué. Now they’re your new favorite go-to pieces to spice up an otherwise bland outfit – see how that works there? 😉
