There's sugar on your soul

Sense pink lace skirt Vulpilandia necklace purple pumps
♫ Editors - Sugar 
The city is filled with pastel colors and it's starting to get to me. Just look at these gorgeous trees and the petals they laid out for me on the ground. The color pink has always been a challenge for me and I guess you could say we've had a love hate relationship along the years. It was surprising for me too, but when the guys at Sense asked me to pick out an item from their website and style it my own way I was instantly drawn to this pink lace skirt. It just stood out, for reasons I couldn't quite explain at first. For one, I've been kinda obsessed with lace lately, but it also makes me think of candy floss and raspberry ice cream. Yummy!

Bonjour!

striped shirt Asos bonjour belt Kristin Perry fringe bracelet

Oui, oui I was in a very French mood that day. Black and white stripes always make me feel this way, but when you throw in a cute belt that says Bonjour, the tableau is complete. I wanted a simple and yet chic ensemble that would get me straight from work to a social fashion event. I mixed together some staple pieces such as the striped shirt and pencil skirt. La piece de resistance was this gorgeous fringed bracelet I recently picked up from Kristin Perry Accessories. It's an eye catcher for sure.

I can go with the flow

She said "I'll throw myself away,
They're just photos after all"
I can't make you hang around.
I can't wash you off my skin.
Outside the frame, is what we're leaving out
You won't remember anyway
I can go with the flow
But don't say it doesn't matter anymore.

Valar morghulis

zara crop top thrifted pleated skirt dragonfly necklace

If I was a character in Game of thrones I would speak High Valyrian and have a swarm of dragonflies as my army. I would only dress in black and gray, of course. Sorry I can't stay longer, gotta run, cause the new season just started.

That's what she said


Of all the sitcoms I've watched in the past few years I miss The Office the most. Oh, the days of 'that's what she said' jokes and good old fashioned office pranks. I spend a fairly large amount of time in an office myself, and it sometimes can to from chaotic to tedious or even frustrating. So I have to find little ways of making it more enjoyable from time to time. That's when I play a little game called 'dress up for work'. You could hardly ever label any piece in my wardrobe as business wear, but this time I think I pulled it off and am quite proud of my office look. But come tomorrow, it will be a whole another story. TGIF, right?

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks

green crop top sweater embroidered nowistyle pants

If this is not obvious from the get go, I was going for a retro kinda look. Something Megan from Mad Men would wear around the house.Well anyway, this happened this weekend while I was out of town. I didn't pack anything fancy with me, left all my heels at home and wore what I like to call my golf shoes, and brought only some red lipstick just in case. We discovered this perfect spot, a log staircase flooded by light near a high school. I would say I could even pass for a substitute teacher, right? Didn't even bring a purse with me on this stroll, so the entire time we were taking pictures I was fidgeting with my phone. Enjoy my awkwardness!

When she needs to shelter from reality she takes a dip in his daydreams

The truth is I forgot my sunglasses on, I wasn't planning on including them in the shoot. But then I got to thinking about something a friend of mine once told me. She said I should not look at the camera every time I take a picture because each and every person looking at it will take a piece of my soul away. I didn't give it much thought back then, but it somehow makes sense. I am exposing myself to my readers on a daily basis and that can make you vulnerable. Hiding behind shades from time to time can be beneficial.
