grey day

express (minus the leather) vest, ???? scarf that i love, urban jeans, steven boots

Grey is one of my favorite neutrals, but it's not translating so well here. The pictures look and feel really dull, or shall I say grey. I think a lot of it has to do with the lighting, and my crappy camera, unfortunately. Good thing I wore a bright scarf to perk things up a bit.

i die

(images from netaporter)

...for these Christian Louboutin oxfords. I want them soooooooo bad, and I know I have better ways to spend my money at the moment but, I DIE. I'm trying my best not to think about them, but I see them in my dreams at night. The plan is to check them out in person and cross my fingers that 1) they are sold out OR 2) they won't have my size OR 3) I think they are hideous in person (not likely). If none of this turns out to be the case, I will start taking donations...or keep dreaming.

fading colors

zara blazer, julie haus dress, christian louboutin shoes, ??? envelope clutch

I wore this Julie Haus ombre dress out lounging in Boston last weekend. I love the print, but the sleeves are kind of weird to me so I always wear it with a blazer or a cardigan and it hides the print :-( I should probably take it to my seamstress to see what she can do about the sleeves.

Here's a picture from the one time I wore the dress without a cardigan or a blazer.

i heart boston

j crew blazer, thrifted h&m cardi, f21 leggings, steven boots

I had an amazing time in Boston! I did not want to leave, and that is rare for me when I am out of town. Not only did I get to spend time with my b/f, I got to spend time with him in one of the most beautiful US cities I've ever visited. A small part of me thinks I am jaded b/c I was with him, but the more I talk to people who have been to Boston, I realize they share the same sentiments as me. It's a gorgeous city, full of character and charm with exquisitely dressed residents! I can not wait to go back.

no rhyme nor reason

f21 denim jacket, ny & co leopard cardi, urban jeans, steve madden luxe shoes

There's no rhyme nor reason to what I am wearing....grey jeans, blue denim jacket, leopard cardi and so on and so forth. That's what's so great about fashion these days...anything goes. So when you fall asleep at 1:00 a.m., forgetting to lay out your clothes the night before and only have like 20 mins to get dressed, throw something on, preferably with some heels, walk with confidence and call it a day. That's what I did :)

I'm off to Boston tomorrow. Everyone have a lovely weekend!

in the wind: chicago

Last weekend I took a trip to Chicago with my girlfriend Nkechi. I packed the night before, so there aren't too many exciting clothing pics BUT the city is beautiful so enjoy some of the highlights:
i got a taste of the chicago wind while i was there. it was no good for the hair.

despite the wind the sky was clear, presenting the perfect opportunity for skyline pics!

belles in blazers...mines thrifted, hers zara!

we had lunch at RL (ralph lauren's restaurant). it was basically like eating in a ralph lauren store, and everyone looked like they belonged in a ralph lauren ad. i highly recommend it.

there was beautiful artwork everywhere you turned.

and i am obsessed with these floral shaped plants that lined the magnificent mile.

Overall it was a great trip, in a great city, with great company :)

Next weekend....BOSTON!
