Tag: dolce vita

i wore: color at the beachside

i’ve noticed a lack of color in la – mainly on me, and i’m not talking the tan.

since we moved – i’m more shades of gray (no, not 50…) than colorful. this changed that:

origins of the outfit: scarf – target (only $19.99) ;  dress – free people; jacket – f 21; wedges – dolce vita; hat – f 21 (replaced ribbon with headband form f21); arm stack – j crew, miansai cuff (bought at steven alan), hermes, j crew.


i wore: it again

i love this dress – it was perfect for the austin heat, easy to pack, and i can get dressy with it. we had a little date night in austin and i wore it to a fancy mexican dinner.

i last wore it (here) in nyc the night we got engaged, i just styled it a little different and off to dine we went!

i wore: you’ll never believe….

excuse my little lag on posting – i’ve been back south tending to wedding details.

so, you’ll never believe where i got this dress – oh, forever 21. i love the shape of the dress +  it’s great under a blazer or solo.

also, my new little beaded bracelet – oh, found that at pier 1 – right?! who knew.

i wore: engagement evening & bubbly

the title is a giveaway, yes?




good night.




favorite post – i think so.


we laughed. we cried. i kept crying, and in a whirlwind of an afternoon we were engaged yesterday. it happened at a cute little bookstore in soho during our nyc visit for another pal’s wedding.

luckily, i’m an over-packer and brought this long airy lilac dress with me. it was perfect for a champagne toast at gramercy tavern with my boy’s childhood pal….and by toast, i mean a bottle for 3.

origins of the outfit: dress – forever 21, can you believe it? it’s gone, but here’s the evergirl talking about it; arm stack – vintage, randolph street market, and j crew; shoes (you can’t even see) – dolce vita

*side note, if you even care: i plan to stay true to unicorn stylings in that, it won’t become all about weddings, but of course a project and outfit might pop up.




i wore: boat time, prague

prague: time to see the city by river – this is slightly sailor-like?


easy does it



good day mate


carrying my new side bag i picked up in italy. and that tank that stayed in my skirt without bunching…a $7 bodysuit! i will say –  it is not made for walking miles in; you get me?

origins of the outfit: bodysuit: forever 21; skirt – nordstrom bp section; smoking shoes – dolce vita; hat – sister’s, barney’s; necklace – vintage; bag – gucci; arm stack: j crew, j crew, vintage – randolph street market; nail cuff – giles & brother; scarf – gap.



i wore: loose pants – tight ankle, paris to venice

traveling day:  i wanted to be comfy and still chase the unattainable chicness of the parisian women:






origins of the outfit: pants – tory burch (outlet); sweater – urban outfitters; sandals – dolce vita (more here); necklace – eliza page, austin (more here); arm stack – hermes and jcrew.


i wore: dinner dots and a repeat, paris

i’ve worn this shirt a ton & the belt a ton (they’re fav’s), but never thought to put them together – at least traveling ‘lite’ forces you to get creative. i present to you – the mixing of the dots (in reverse color patterns as well):

looking lost…again

off to dinner


origins of the outfit: shorts – gap; shirt – zara (old); shoes – dolce vita, new (about them here); bracelet – amrita singh (about it here); belt – club monaco.



parisian repeat: exact outfit, much different setting…last time






i shopped: madewell & for flat shoes

prepping for europe and i need all flats = lots of walking + i may be taking the crutches with me.

i’ve been ogling python flats for a while – j crew and madewell. I didn’t want to shell out the full price, but i’ve convinced myself that i can wear them into fall/winter.

python flats from madewell


and after shoes – i moved onto clothes…

madewell: pop of color, horses, and denim cotton


so my boyfriend doesn’t love me in boyfriend jeans, but i do. these madewell jeans are by far the best boyfriend jeans i’ve found. i’ve tried on tons, and even tried making my own; these i love. did i mention i had to go down a size or 2? i love them love them…


the best boyfriend jeans
