Loafing Around

I love my new loafers!! (Well, I love the idea of them, they have yet to arrive from ASOS).  My favorite part? The gold buckle is a horse!  Whimsy and structure meet.  Aaaaah-mazing.


Asos, Bertie Lexi, Donald J. Pliner

I love how femininity meets androgyny with the loafer, as compared to the purely lady-like ballet flat.  It makes a girl look like she knows where she’s going.  They make a guy look determined as well, and I do love a determined man.


Conditioner. Body Style

New Obsession!  First of all, I love LUSH Cosmetics.  The smell, the products, the packaging, the mantra, the employees, perfection.

Today I went in to grab a new face mask (they have a shelf life of only 2 weeks, AND you have to keep them refrigerated so they don’t go bad!) and of course they talked me into buying the whole store. I’m part owner these days (they owe it to me).   What I left with might be my fave thing yet; Ro’s Body Conditioner.  That’s right, like the stuff you use after shampoo to make your hair all soft and lovely, but for your skin.  Wash. Slather on. Rinse. Glow. BIG tip: post shave. All the benefits of lotion sans the too-goopy-for-summer feel, plus the scent of rose. Duh.

Denim Lover

The perfect daytime (and whatever, nighttime too) jacket? The jean jacket. By far.  Throw over a cute shiny dress to tone it down for shopping.  Pair it with a slightly different colored pair of jeans for an ironically unironic Texas tuxedo (my fave).  Even give yesterday’s outfit a twist when you feel uninspired.  The denim jacket is my go to, day and night, when it’s a tad too chilly to bare arms or when I want to wear lots of bling to work.

Levi’s (perfect), look from Chicagolooks.blogspot

Speaking of work and weather, just today 5 out of 7 of us girls walked in wearing a denim jacket (you know where we get our inspiration, no?).  Obvi, because the temperature floated in the mid-60’s all day!

Hair today… just like high school?

I had every color in the book between the ages of 14 and 18… fuchsia, purple, blue, blue-black, purple-black, oh how this list goes on.

I think I want it again! I love the pastels and deep, deep hues that are replacing brown and blonde these days!

Up next for me? Zooey’s purple-black hair.  I’m OBSESSED right now.

Doubtful DIY

I want to make this! Yeah, right.  I just want this beautiful James Nares for Coach bag.

Just something else I’m obsessing over that was intended for use by men! Sunglasses, watches, cologne, and now bags.
