Plaid Shirtdress

I’ve worn this plaid shirtdress way too many times since I got it. I love that it’s comfortable, easy, and looks perfect with tights and boots so this will definitely be my winter uniform! This is my second plaid dress (remember this one?) and I’m officially a convert. 🙂

I had so much fun shooting on this rooftop (thanks Rachel!) and only in Bushwick will you find such cool graffiti on a rooftop. There were so many interesting backdrops around us which made me excited (one of my favorites was this one) to shoot.

Etsy is my favorite place to discover pretty handmade jewelry from small businesses and JES Design Studio  is my recent favorite discovery. Her pieces are affordable and her shop is filled with colorful gemstones and druzy pieces. I’m loving this turquoise colored chrysoprase stone with the initial charm (you can find it here). Definitely check out her shop for more unique, beautiful and affordable pieces!

Leather Pocket Shift Dress

This dress is so soft and feels like a sweatshirt with the added bonus of still looking chic. And of course the faux leather pockets completely won me over!

I’ve been having difficulty managing my hair lately. I used to get japanese straightenings for my hair from when I was 15 to about 20 and then got keratin/brazilian for the next couple of years. For the last few years I’ve stopped all treatments completely. Yes, it was nice having silky straight hair without having to do anything at all but I do love wavy hair which I can’t get from those treatments. The problem is that I’m not skilled with styling my hair at all and my hair is extremely frizzy. When my hair looks pretty on the blog, it’s because I work with hairstylists.

This time I tried something new after Brittanny showed me a youtube tutorial that seemed easy enough, even for me (also seen on Friday’s post). With my hair damp a couple hours after showering, I twisted my hair into two pigtail buns (after using Hypnotik Hair Serum); Princess Leia style. I slept on it and in the morning brushed it out and put in a bit more serum. This was the result. It wasn’t bad but I still struggle with frizz which you can’t see too much here. I like the messy-wavy “undone” look and I’m still trying to figure it out! If you have any hair tips, please send them my way!

Bold Color Combinations

I’ve been on a cobalt kick lately so this dress was calling my name, especially when I got it an additional 50% off sale! I couldn’t find a necklace that looked right with the dress until I paired it with this fun, neon yellow piece. I think it’s a really fun color combination and a pretty sweet way to start off the week!

#MomentsOfChic with Piperlime

I’m really excited to be collaborating with Piperlime today as I’m pretty much obsessed with everything in their store. I’m not a huge fan of animal print so I was surprised by how much I liked this dress. I love the cobalt and black mix and it is so comfortable and easy to wear. And these suede black booties go with everything so I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of them!

TGIF and have a great weekend!
