the graphic print

I like a geometric print now and then. This jumbo polka dot maxi skirt caught my eye recently and I’m enjoying the boldness of the print.IMG_4771

Paired it with a simple white blouse and stacks of bracelets. A print like this is fun to pair with another print as well… a look I appreciate more than I feel compelled to wear myself. Loving the green mirrored Ray-Ban Clubmasters with these Pearls of Joy 12mm Tahitian Studs.

This is the Jeffree Star liquid lipstick in Anna Nicole I mentioned a while ago. A stunning summer orange with just the right level of red in it.

Nails are Essie Cute as a Button with the excellent Dazzle Dry basecoat and topcoat. Highly recommend Dazzle Dry, which was recommended to me by Wet Paint Nail Spa here in Cambridge.

flowers and stripes

Finally a day nice enough to wear my new Bass oxfords. Yes, I got shoes with flowers on them. Yellow ones. I fear it is a slippery slope.

When it’s not slung over my shoulder messenger bag style, I often carry my bag in this strange, inefficient way, bunching up the short strap.

These leggings are a little tighter and a little more high-waisted than anything else I have…but I’m getting into that look. Or, I can get into it, with conditions.

This is the loose, haphazard bun I throw my hair into most days. This hairstyle has the excellent virtue of taking less than a minute to execute.

Oh, this watch is new. From the sleek Danish brand Skagen, known for their extremely thin movements. I love this simple, clean gold design (and a two-toned watch wherein both tones are gold is me all over). It’s settling in nicely.

Bass Thea oxfords, green envelope top, Topshop Baxter leggings, American Apparel braided belt (I have this belt in so many colors), Lucky Brand bag, Ray-Ban aviators, Skagen watch, Scotch & Soda leather wrap bracelet, vintage earrings. On the lips: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid lipstick in Shocking Coral.
