Welcome To The Jungle

Welcoming Fall with leaves on my shirt, where nature and fashion became one…

Leather weather is also here and I’m bringing it back to a favorite budget find of mine, this flirty Joie skirt I found at Crossroads Trading!

What inspires you this time of year? 

Bah-bye September!

The Blueprint

I want it to be warm badly, enough to wear dresses and skirts without tights, but for now that’s the only thing I can do! Here I am in a throwback from last summer, wore it with the same boots from the outfit before I went to Tulum. The boots give it a 70’s vibe yet again although the dress itself screams vintage, that’s cause I got it at Crossroads Trading. They have so many great selections from all eras!

Oh Tulum, why couldn’t you rub off that warmth on me so I can rub it off on New York? As I’m sitting on the train writing this (the best time to gather my thoughts for outfit posts) everyone is wearing black in this car! I’m the only one in color! Winter what have you done?!
Guys and gals, it’s Spring! It’s okay to wear color!

Low Cut Sunday

It’s amazing what thrifty treasures you can find.  At my neighborhood thrift shop, I managed to find this sexy cowl neck style top.  Unfortunately, it went out of business a few months ago and I haven’t found another one close to me.  Ever since I was a little girl my mother always shopped at thrift stores.  She says you can find anything and everything in thrift stores.  She wasn’t wrong.  I love a good thrift find no matter how much digging I have to do.  I’ll be sure to visit some thrift stores in Brooklyn this summer, I hear there are some great ones.  The grey jeans and nude pumps complimented the blue, while the snakeskin bag brought all the colors together.

Do you shop at thrift stores?
