As you'll see in outfit photos to come, I've been gravitating towards shapeless and colorless outfit combinations, dare I say I minimal (but I won't). Of course this is just a single facet of my multi-polar style choices. In some occasions it wants to mature, and in others it clings to pink, glittery, and animal cartoon-covered apparel. Notice how I personified my sense of style, probably because it really has a mind of its own.

In My Air one piece and JNB jewelry via Dietch PR, neon-trimmed satchel (similar here), H&M hologram ankle booties (similar here)

It's been way longer than I'm comfortable with, but in my defense this week has been unbelievably eventful. This week I took off to MAGIC Market Week with my BB--that's boo/business partner, so BBP I guess-- and when we returned I got about 3 seconds to catch my breath before I attended the QVC Oscar Party as an "instaGlamer." Posts on these coming soon, whenever that is. 

I picked out this crisp white In My Air one piece romper from Dietch PR because it reminded me of a ChloƩ blouse I lurked on ssense for a good few months, and found the color, or lack thereof, super appropriate for the quickly-approaching Spring season. Above you also see me trying my hardest not to squint with the sun's rays reflecting on every wall and surface outside, including my shoes.

So I held off on posting this for the longest time due to the state of my weird hair (it's really wavy and it was in that stage where you brush it too much so it's between natural wave and straight... i.e., ugly), but whatever. That might be my motto for a lot of things. 


And Pssst! You can get 20% anything and everything on TARTE when you enter VALDAY13 at checkout. Happy Valentine's Day from us to you <3

While snapping these around my neighborhood, a friendly smoke-colored kitty came to be an extra in our little session, and I had no complaints whatsoever. I threw this Theory jacket I got over a floral maxi dress and finished off the look with gold accessories (including my beautiful and daintly initial bracelet I received from Maya Brenner Designs) and a clutch I ended up making after spending over $100 at Joanne Fabric during a sudden bout of DIY urges during winter break. There will be a lot more where that came from.
