forever21 pleated chiffon skirt & flower headband, Express sheer ruffle blouse (old), AA bodysuit, Bebe croc pumps, vintage clutch

The weather has been heaven this weekend with 65 degree highs and nice breezes (forecasts predict this will end tonight). Ladies and gentleman spring is almost upon us!
I love dressing up on Sundays..an outfit like this, during the work-week, is a bit overdressed for my taste. Love the details of this skirt (bow in the back, exposed zipper, and the straps). Speaking of Sundays, I found a beautiful vintage cobalt blue pure silk long shirt dress this weekend that I'm saving for Easter Sunday.
*I've got a few items on eBay right now, including a brand new American apparel velvet dress


spring sweater

This sweater has really pretty details. Great for spring or almost spring rather.

First, I want to thank everyone so much for commenting on the last post..MOTIVATION!!
I've been wearing all of my blazers belted lately and therefore showing my belt collection some love. Here are a few of my favorite found over the past couple of years. The red studded one in the middle is my current fave it seems to go with everything!!

* all of these belts are vint, found at thrift stores

left to right: vint fur scarf, fleamarket pashima scarfs, green AA circle scarf, more fleamarket, random mall store beige w/brown stars, mall store colorful tie-dy scarf, AA black tie-dye scarf, vintage waffle knit (semi hidden), Old Navy brown w/ colors striped scarf
I also want to thank my scarf collection for everything they've done for me this winter. I could wear the same outfit with a different scarf, a different way and it makes all the the difference..so thank you my luvs..
*The vint fur scarf on the far left has been worn over everything the last few weeks.

*I'm off the rest of the week so I'll def try for an outfit post since the South has finally thawed out!


this & that

Many won't believe what I thrifted these vint Ray-Ban's for @ the Salvation Army and I may even be a bit ashamed to say.... ($5) One of the reasons I will always love this tiny, old fashioned town!

Some great looks from this month's Nylon mag

I'm always interested to see what people's make-up and skincare routine is, here is mine.
  • Evian facial spray for misting after I finish my make-up. Also have a smaller size in my purse at all times.
  • Biore Skin Preservation micro-scrub (for once a week exfoliation)
  • Ole Henriksen African Tea face and eye cream @ night
  • Philosophy moisturizer (daily in the winter)
  • Aveeno Clear Complexion line of cream cleanser, facial cleansing pads, and moisturizer (year round for my super break-out prone face..discovered the wonders of this line's use of soy in college and haven't found anything like it since)
More recently purchased treasures in the form of a boy's Ralph Lauren blazer that fits like an absolute dream (thrifted), a vintage Christian Dior silk shirt (thrifted), rad vintage belt (thrifted), Dooney & Burke leopard print wallet (tjmaxx).

Have a great rest of the week!
