recently I’ve been wearing clothes (trendy pics!)

Fummer? Sall? It is too chilly for shorty shorts and too warm for sweaters, but even with these imposing circumstances, I’ve decided to continue to wear clothes.

In fact, I wore some out the other night to my friend Katie’s birthday party.

AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS TIME FOR??! That’s right, kids. This is the part of the show where I put on clothes that I thought were cute enough to spend money on and do as the fashion bloggers do by taking trendy pics.

Except I do it my way.

Here’s what I wore: a B&W patterned blouse from Collective Concepts with my favorite  loose-fitting polyester pants from J. Crew and  heels from Isola. Right now my nails are a deep raspberry shellac, and for makeup I went with an lined pink lip and neutral smokey because birthday!

Here’s me being casual with my September Harper’s Bazaar.

And then decided I should just cut to the chase and contort my self so you could see the whole outfit.

If a burglar stole this exact outfit I would try to replicate the style with these items! From right to left: Everlane Silk Round Collar- $78, H&M loose teal pants- $24.95, Metika Wedge Sandal- $79 @ shopbop.com, and I’d hunt down nail polish like this one from OPI if I wanted to recreate without shellac.

Pictures of my trendy outfit 03.14

So being fairly new to this fashion blogging thing, I have done some research of what other my style-minded counterparts have been doing to make their blogs a success. In doing this, I’ve seen a lot of people showcasing their day-to-day outfit selections. Not only does it give them hella street cred as a fashion blogger, it let’s you see how someone else chooses to put together garments in a way you might not.  Wanting to fit in, I had my own fashion shoot yesterday to show you how I was “rockin'” my new spring pants/bag combo from H&M.

I knew all those years of watching America’s Next Top Model would pay off.

Happy Friday xo

Press Release: Barney Poaching Awareness

Portland, OR. A heartbreaking epidemic is sweeping over the fashion world. Popular television star and endangered species, Barney, is reportedly being is being poached for his hide. These uniquely colored hides are being constructed into devastatingly cute bags that are ready for spring and sold at irresistible prices. Members of Barney’s fan club, interviewed Tuesday, were at a loss for words and proceeded to throw cheerios everywhere. Nobody knows who is responsible for this growing tragedy, but officials of the Barney Poaching Awareness Organization, or BPAO, released a statement on Monday saying they are doing everything they can to make sure the remainder of the friendly dinosaurs are being looked after at a safe house. The location of the safe house was undisclosed by the BPAO, but rumored to be somewhere near Sesame Street. Nobody knows what is next for controlling this epidemic and a public warning has been issued to Baby-bop to watch her back. It would make for a nice wallet.
