Purple Haze





Whatcha Wearing?
Free People dress from Buffalo Exchange / Blouse from Philly AIDS Thrift
Tights from Gap / AK Anne Klein boots from Beacon's Closet
Vintage bag from Beyond Retro

I fell in love with this dress when I found it at Buffalo Exchange a few years ago, but I've only worn it three times. There's just something about it that doesn't quite feel...me. When I told Matt that I wasn't sure if I liked this outfit, he said "Why, because it has a renaissance festival thing going on?". Well, I guess that's exactly why! I'm not sure if the whole hippy-ish, ren-fest thing is really my style. The dress is just so pretty that I decided I didn't care! I think I'm making it work with my style with the bright tights and buttoned up blouse underneath. What do you think?


London Calling




Whatcha Wearing?
Vintage blouse from Beyond Retro / Cope dress from Buffalo Exchange
Vintage hat from Atlanis Attic / Tights from We Love Colors
Sunglasses from Brick Lane Market / Soda boots from Shoe Carnival

On Saturday night, Matt and I headed to Hollywood to check out a comedy show, and then grabbed a couple beers at our favorite German beer place, Wurstk├╝che. Oh, the wonderful German and Belgian beers they have on tap there, including one of my favorites, Spaten Optimator. So delicious! 

These sunglasses and this blouse were both amazing finds from the same trip to London a few years ago. They quickly became two of the most worn things in my wardrobe, and I love how they remind me of that trip every time I put them on. Do you guys have clothing that you bought on vacation that give you great memories when you wear them?

I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy and Transatlantic Blonde.


The Arboretum

We took a trip out to the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden in Arcadia on Saturday. First of all (and you're probably pretty sick of me saying this), the weather was amazing. I'd been cooped up in an office all week while the weather got progressively nicer, so it was great to be able to spend the afternoon outside! The animals, especially the fat squirrels, seem to have no fear of humans here, so it was really easy to get close to them and take good pictures. Seriously, I doubt those squirrels can even climb trees anymore. People have obviously been feeding them too much!

Daylight savings kicks in next weekend, so after that I should be able to start taking outfit photos after work a couple days per week. It'll be so nice to leave the office while it's still light outside!
