That '70s Shirt

I have such a soft spot for colorful, kaleidoscopic prints. While I somehow managed to pass this shirt up when it was originally at Target, I knew it had to be mine when I spotted it at a thrift store.

Sweet Relief

Last weekend we had a day of glorious sweatshirt weather. After weeks of heat, it was a lovely respite. At the risk of sounding like a cliche, I have been snatching clothes from my boyfriend's dresser a lot lately, and he may not see this shirt for awhile...

Double Denim Dare

It doesn't get any more basic than this casual get-up, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Also, can we talk about the wallet impression on these shorts? I wonder how many years some dude kept his wallet in that pocket.

Who Ya Gonna Call?

I know, I know. I've featured this t-shirt a lot on the blog, but I can't deny its heavy rotation in my wardrobe. Here I've classed it up with all black and heeled sandals. Who knew a Ghostbusters shirt could be so versatile? ;)

Summer Bummer

It has been HOT, HOT, HOT! Coming from the Midwest, you'd think I'd be tough when it comes to summer temps, but I'm a big baby about it these days. All I want to wear is easy breezy outfits like this - a loose, flowing top and comfy shorts and sandals. I made the tough call of cutting my vintage Levi 501s into shorts recently, but it had to happen. The weather made me do it!

Hello Again!


Sorry it's been so quiet around here lately - I've been a busy bee! I played catch-up over the weekend, so there will be a bit more action on the old blog this week.

A Case of You

When ASOS asked me to style an outfit inspired by my favorite '70s icon, I didn't have to think twice. Joni Mitchell is not only a beautiful fashion inspiration, she is also a folk legend and one of my favorite artists of all time. Having been raised by hippies, her free-spirited songbird trills and ingenious offbeat chords were a staple of my childhood soundtrack. The album Blue will always take me back to car rides with my dad as a kid.

For my look, I went with a bell-sleeved navy number with delicate crochet accents, oversize round sunglasses, easygoing espadrille sandals and a mystical moon barrette. It felt like a fitting tribute to Joni's feminine yet no-fuss hippie style without being too costume-y. Thanks to ASOS for including me and to Joni for the endless inspiration.
