OOTD: Roots and Boots

22 Feb

There are a few things I would like to talk about in this post:

1. I have purple hair now. All of it started off as dark purple (see Instagram) and now it’s fading into this orchid ombre. It’s been about 2 months since my last salon visit (hence the roots) so I actually need to decide what’s next before next month’s appointment: more purple, lighter, ecaille?

2.  After months of searching, I found the perfect faux leather moto jacket with gold hardware. I actually found an equally perfect real leather one shortly afterwards, but that’s another post for a different day. I’m actually considering getting rid of this one now.

3. I cleaned out my closet like you wouldn’t believe. I have a new vision for what I want it to look like, and this new dress/jacket combo is part of it. Neutral, classic, and versatile.

4. My boyfriend got me a beautiful 50mm lens for Valentine’s Day so we played with it over the weekend!

Cute, Cuter, Cutest.

20 Nov

CCC: Quilted Vests

CCC: Quilted Vests

Cute: Old Navy Quilted Zip-Front Vest, $34.94
Cuter: J. Crew Factory Quilted Puffer Vest, $98 $78
Cutest: J. Crew Excursion Quilted Down Vest, $120

Out of nowhere this morning I had a hankering for a quilted vest. I cannot explain it, and I won’t try to, so here are the three best options I found. White would be ideal, but with my purple hair, I better go for navy or classic black. The J. Crew vest comes in a “light amethyst” that is to die for. I found a few other options, but I’ve got my eye on an Old Navy one. I’m having dreams of layered button-ups, sweaters, and statement necklaces underneath a warm, cozy vest. Of course, all of these babies have gold hardware. I wouldn’t want them if they didn’t.

Black Friday & Cyber Monday sales are just around the corner, so…
