bringing it all back home

beyond vintage lace top (on sale), j brand ‘aoki’ skinny boyfriend jeans, ray ban aviators, kooba bag, old BR shoes, baublebar twitter nameplate necklace, F21 & Urban Outfitters turquoise necklaces (i love this one and this one too), various bracelets – some fun ones here, here, here and here

..

back to business as usual here on the blog…

This outfit to me just screams easy romantic bohemian in the city – a look I try to emulate often when getting dressed in the morning. Layered turquoise jewelry, white vintage lace and slouchy lived-in light denim with neutral accessories. Please note: if you are looking for the world’s most comfortable cropped jeans, look no further. Seriously, these are the softest, most perfectly slouchy jeans. I could not recommend them more! I am sure they will for sure be making some repeat appearances here.

I hope everyone’s weekend is going swell!

Madewell Chambray shirt, Urban Outfitters, F21 & c/o 31 Bits necklaces, Butter London nail polish in Slapper

Chambray to me just screams easy and carefree. I recently acquired this Madewell shirt and it has become a serious go-to, I just keep wearing it. I love the boyfriend fit and the washed down color. It’s so easy and perfect.

On another note, as we ease into spring I have resurrected all my turquoise and earthy jewelry. It doesn’t feel quite right for winter, but now that the weather is changing….

31 Bits kindly sent me the tri-strand multicolored necklace above. It’s a very cool company started by a bunch of girlfriends in LA with the mission statement “Using fashion and design to empower women to rise above poverty.” All of the jewelry is made out of recycled paper (you would never know it) by women in Uganda. In addition to selling the women’s jewelry, 31 bits also creates and supports programming to provide literacy education, financial and vocational training and holistic care to empower the women to further their careers and attain social equity. The youtube video about the company’s mission touched my heart, you must watch it here. It reminded me of my time spent studying abroad in South Africa and working for a women’s foundation in the townships of Cape Town.

31 Bits reminds me that there are so many different facets to fashion and it really can actually change the world. I plan on acquiring a few more pieces to add to my summer bohemian collection. To shop 31 Bits click here!
