First off, happy Valentine’s Day everyone! In all honesty, I’ve never been a big fan of this holiday, but as the tremendously talented Danielle Bernstein from WeWoreWhat instagrammed this morning with a snap of her sweetie, “love is f*ucking great.” Couldn’t agree more with that sentiment. Having found my match about three years ago, I can attest to the fact that there is nothing more incredible than the respect, tenderness, and acceptance that stems from love. Now that I’ve said my piece – and likely made my less sentimental readers gag in the process – I’ll move on.
Utilitarian influence is taking spring/summer 2015 by storm. From military to straight up safari glam, everyone from Gucci to Ralph Lauren presented a parade of khaki last fall for the spring lines. As with most of my outfits, my take pairs masculine with feminine elements — it just keeps things interesting.
This jacket has proven to be the perfect piece to butch up any of my frilly pieces (especially love it with this white lace dress), and bonus, it’s proven to be quite warm when put to the test. This jacket was in tow everywhere I went on my last trip to Portland, and it was unexpectedly water-resistant, so it’s the perfect jacket when you’re hitting the road.
One more thing..can we talk about this bag?? No surprise here, Mr. Marc Jacobs does it again! I’ve been carrying it nonstop these last few weeks. It’s the perfect shade of creamy beige and the leather is straight up butter.
Now it’s off to tame this mane of mine. It’s beginning to have a mind of it’s own, so it’s time to take off a few inches and maybe switch up the color. Enjoy your Saturday!
