The Day the Earth Stood Still


Since I started working again keeping up daily on my blog is a bit of a task as I don't get to dress up in my regular clothes on work days. Then, by the time I am off I am really just wanting to shower and relax and not get re-dressed and done up for a outfit post. So I am trying to get a few looks done on my days off, that way I can post throughout the week while I am working! This look I put together this past weekend and am sharing with you now:)

The entire outfit consists mostly of forever 21 pieces. The shoes however are my Lita look a likes. These are my Newest pair!! They truly look absolutely identical and are literally less than have the cost of the original Jeffery Campbell Lita's. When I find good deals like this I couldn't be happier!! I have been obsessed with the Lita style since first seeing them in spring of 2011. I still have yet to own a real pair. Coming in at right under 200.00 and some ranging upwards of 300.00 I just cant seem to fork out the cash for the real deal when I wasn't able to work for nearly two years due to being in a car accident(that was not our fault) and my funds are minimal right now as I get my life back together and wait for our settlement. Some day I dream to own a real pair of Lita's but until then these babies work just fine for me:)

This style I frequently see on and have been loving it! The boots with the high waist-ed shorts paired with a tank and a long flowing jacket or kimono style jacket. Personally I find it to be an all around great summer/fall look for days its still a bit breezy and you want a bit of a wind block on your arms and upper thighs.

Like an ocean of music we move with the flow

This look was from about a month ago. I wore this while heading up the river for the day, although it was about 70 degrees up the river it still felt a bit chilly and breezy to me. So I decided on a festival summer style look.

The shorts are thrifted, I actually picked them up from a thrift store at the beginning of summer, they were mens size 26 levis and I transformed them into some high waist-ed keepers! Since this photo I have done more work on them and will be posting some looks some with the updated versions of these shorts soon.

The Blue long sleeved over sized shirt I am realizing I actually picked up at the same thrift store on the same day. Its quite large on me but I love the look of big loose shirts taking the place of jackets, especially on breezy summer days. Living on the coast its still a bit chilly in the town during the day so having a long sleeves sometimes is nice! It works nicely to pair a larger shirt like this with sleeves half rolled, about elbow length. I like to just throw one on before my outfit before going out to complete the look and add a little something else to it!

I layered a white tank forever 21 with a crochet vintage 70's style tank from Forever 21.

The belted, studded, boots complete the look giving it that festival feel I was going for.

The boots are by canyon river blues.

Sun Struck Love

A lot of my fashion style inspiration comes from two of my favorite places to online shop and browse. Planet Blue and Nasty Gal. Two fabulous stores that you will hear me mentioning probably almost daily here. Once you venture into the site, I think you'll soon see why! Absolutely everything they carry is fabulous!

This look is very much inspired by nastygal styles and looks from their lookbooks, site and blog.

Road Trippin'

A very exciting day is in line for a very close dear friend of mine!! One of my best friends Miss Megan Punt, whom I have not gotten to see since 2004 is getting Married on this September 15th of 2012, to a fabulous man, her real life prince charming Mr. J.T. Kneip.

My love and I will road trip to Sioux Falls South Dakota to celebrate this glorious amazing day with them! We are so excited and cannot wait! This will be our first time driving through so many states like this! I cannot wait for all the exciting things we will get to see, so much country between Oregon and South Dakota. I am hoping a lot of rad stops will be in order. Lots of photo opportunities as well. Hopefully I can get some decent fashion photos in while on the trip with some awesome back drops of scenery! I am also hoping to find some unique stores for crystals, beads, leather, silver treasures, sterling, old conchos, arrowheads, old cowboy boots to redesign, and a lot of other exciting thrifting materials to re create!

After asking Megan to help me decide a on a dress she choose a few and I narrowed it down to this one that she had picked. Its a gorgeous violet chiffon dress from one of my absolute favorite online shops Nastygal featuring a crochet top and cutout back. I am super excited for it to arrive so I can try it on and send her a picture!

If you haven't heard of or checked out Nastygal I highly suggest you do!! In my opinion they have a little flare for anyone!! You don't have to be young and eccentric to sport nastygal designs. Just have a passion for loving life and let the clothes do they're job:) I promise when wearing anything from Nasty Gal your sure to get lots of comments and asking's of where you found that amazing piece!

When Soul Meets Body

I actually purchased this navy blue flowing maxi dress last summer but only got to wear it once before summer ended, so for my mom’s retirement-celebration of 40 years at the same job; I decided it was a perfect summer evening fit. I paired it with a long black forever 21 duster style cardigan and a pair of apricot Litas. I love the long flowing dress in the summer! In my next post I am going to be discussing some amazing dresses Id die to own and have in my closet!! From some of my most loved and favorite designers! A few I've just learned of this summer and am so glad these designers are now in my life! They are truly to die for and amazing in soo many ways!!
