shiny shiny


once upon a time, i used to post weekly roundups of inspirational images i’d found around the web. i’m not sure exactly why i ever stopped, because i certainly continue to spend an embarrassing amount of time looking at pretty pictures online haha. one trend that i have been admiring, but have yet to try myself, is metallics. everything from pearlescent to glitter to patent leather, silk, and velvet. they seem to be catching my eye everywhere i look these days and i finally want to give it a try. i think the easiest way to incorporate the look would be with shoes or a handbag, yet i still haven’t mustered up the courage to do it! in particular, i’ve been eying the martiniano glove flats in gold. they’d be perfect for christmas and new year’s parties, don’t you think?

want: vintage lawn dresses

i’m going to preface this saying that i know this is entirely impractical for my lifestyle, but i don’t think a spring or summer goes by where i don’t find myself wishing i could dress like a sister wife on summer vacation in some dainty vintage lawn dress made of white eyelet. i actually once found one at the alameda flea market for $80 in exactly my size. i was in super bargain-mode at the time, and for some reason decided this was an unreasonable price (it’s not), and i’ve kicked myself for not buying it ever since.

outfit inspiration

i don’t know exactly what it is, but lately i’ve been finding my eye drawn to these simple and slightly sporty looks. perhaps it’s because my expanding belly is begging me for more comfortable clothes and all of these outfits just look so easy to wear. or perhaps i’m picking up on back-to-school vibes in the fresh autumn air… you can always see the rest of what’s been catching my eye on my tumblr and pinterest!
