My New Fave Animal Print

Hi y’all, happy Friday! I’m headed to Chicago later this afternoon to see my best friend from college and spend the weekend sketching around the Windy City! If y’all have any suggestions on places to eat/drink/shop let me know! For now, I’ll leave you with this little trend I’ve been into lately. I love most animal prints (except zebra, say no to zebra), but especially this speckled dalmatian/cheetah print. I’ve not been sure of what to call it, as it’s more abstract than straight-up cheetah, but not quite reminiscent of 101 Dalmatians either. Regardless, being a natural design, it’ll fit in with almost any look, plus, it’s a fun way to add some interest and texture to an outfit. What patterns and prints do you gravitate toward? I hope everyone has a great weekend, I’ll meet you back here on Monday! Until then, follow along on Instagram!

Weekly Wishlist: Go Army

Click to Shop!

Hello! Happy Monday! Today’s Weekly Wishlist centers around the military/utilitarian trend we’re seeing right now. I love this trend because it is really classic and can blend in with so many different styles. Basic items you are bound to already have in your closet will play well with this look. Take those green Theory georgette pants and top them with a white button down and flats – you’re good to go!  Also, give the tan cargo dress a chance. I recently purchased it along with literally five of my coworkers, all different heights and body types, and it flatters everyone! It’s been on repeat for some time now and I won’t be stopping anytime soon. Hope ya’ll have a great day and that this little post provides some Monday entertainment!

Clare Vivier & Other Stories

Who’s seen the May cover of Cosmopolitan?  No shade to Madonna but yikes.  While perusing this noted journal of Christianity (haha), I discovered a fun little collab!  We all know Clare V for her fold-over clutches, like this one everyone in the world seems to own, but have you heard of & Other Stories?  I think I live under a rock because this was the first I’d heard of it, though it’s the second collaborative effort between the two labels.  & Other Stories is owned by H&M, which explains the forward thinking designs and European edge. Anyway, back to our girl Clare, this line is lower priced than her primary collection and includes the signature fold-over style clutch.  You can also find a couple bags, pouches, luggage tags, and even a perforated leather smoking slipper, all in brightly hued leather.  Have you ever bought anything from & Other Stories? They’re also doing a little collaboration with Vans, which is just as cool!

I hope everyone is having a Sunday funday, thanks for reading!
