Opening Ceremony Flats, New Shades, and the Perfect Tee ♥

It seems like forever since I last blogged! I'm so sorry for the absence - I've just been so caught up with class and work (I don't even have time to knit while reading my textbooks)!

Well I'm back with a couple recent purchases that I just had to share!

I've always had trouble finding the perfect t-shirt. For me, the perfect t-shirt has to be slightly oversized yet still shape-giving, absolutely cannot be clingy, it has to have that extra little oomph factor, and be something that I always want to wear. Well, I finally found my perfect tee! I cannot believe that I passed the opportunity to try on this top for such a long time. When I slipped it over my head last week, it was like bread and butter. Heidi Merrick you are amazing; thank you Oliver and Lilly's for carrying this gorgeous brand.
The cotton is divine, the shape of the top is so flattering, perfect sleeve length (it's loose enough for comfort yet tapered enough to wear under a cardigan without bumps and lumps), and the leather accents make it so cool. I've been wearing this top almost everyday since I picked it up from Oliver and Lilly's, over my Desmond Leather Pants, over black jeans, under a denim jacket - this top goes with everything ♥



Some Super sunnies from Vincent Park to continue that cool vibe. I love it when the sunlight hits these shades, the inside is lined in a tortoise shell pattern and it looks amazing in the sunlight.



And the highlight of my month...


Opening Ceremony Julietta Patent Flats ♥
These flats are absolutely gorgeous. I'm usually not a fan of patent footwear, but the yellow suede really puts the pretty in this polished shoe. I feel so pulled together every time I slip these babies on. They're sold out on the Opening Ceremony website (still available in bordeau/black)but you can pick them up at shoe haven Umeboshi on Main Street.

That's all for now lovelies!

All About Color

I'm usually pretty neutral when it comes to my wardrobe and accessories (it's usually black on black on black - sometimes a splash of green or pink, but that's asking a lot). However, recently I have been CRAZY about color! Well, I haven't really been wearing a lot of color, but I am considering incorporating quite a few vibrant pieces into my wardrobe for spring and summer. Seeing all these gorgeous bursts or neon and bright colors is so refreshing and beautiful. Here are a few pieces I am drooling over...

One of my favorite pieces from Heidi Merrick's spring collection. I fell in love with it when I first saw it in person at Oliver and Lilly's.

I`ve been very much into oranges lately...

I am dying to get my hands on a pair Dieppa Restrepo's Gaston loafers. They are simply, absolutely gorgeous. I would get them in every color (if only they werent $300 some a pair...)


Aqua aura crystals are one of my favorites, turn it into a bullet necklace and oh la la.


Handmade beauty for only $75. This satchel also comes in a bright neon green and pink. She also does cute flats and oxfords for very reasonable prices.


Nothing like a burst of sunshine to put me in a smiley mood. 


No its not something I would wear, but it would sure make a beautiful accent to any room in my house (and it would help with geography class...well if I were actually taking geography - I could totally sleep and study at the same time)


Have any of you lovelies been into color lately? What colorful pieces would you incorporate into your wardrobe?

Front and Company Rummage Sale ♥



It's that time of year again: it's time for Front and Company's Rummage Sale! Time to get up nice and early for a cup of coffee on Main Street and roll up your sleeves while lining up to get into the gem consignment store for crazy deal goodies

I
've been able to go to every sale they've had for the past 2 years or so now and each time I've come home with amazing finds. One year I scored a pair of COH Jeggings and a pair of super cute Prada sandals while last year I managed to dig up a couple James Perse tanks, a funky Surface To Air top and a little Marc By Marc Jacobs watch. Despite the crowd and hectic atmosphere, it's actually quite fun. I love browsing through the accessories and stationary from their store next door (they usually have a table outside if the weather is nice - crossing my fingers for sun this weekend).

I
'll definitely be stopping by this weekend (hopefully before) work to see what treasures are to be found! I hope you lovelies will have the time to stop by and do some digging (and share your finds)!
