London-based stylist Caroline Sieber, whose clientele includes Emma Watson, always seems to nail the classic meets modern look. Whether she is wearing a red jumpsuit, button-down shirt dress, or a tuxedo dress she always looks comfortable with what she’s wearing while also giving off the vibe of being put together. I especially love her pairing a sequin long sleeved blouse with denim cutoffs and strappy heels.

 

Have a good weekend!

I’ve always heard about others “exploring their city” by going to restaurants, shops, and other places of interest that they never/hardly have gone to before instead of their usual places. Having also fallen victim to taking the easy way out when it comes to deciding where to go for a bite to eat or where to shop.

This past week I decided head towards downtown for a few hours after my latest hair cut (pictures of it will be up within the next week!) to explore some places that I’ve always wanted to check out but never have for some reason. My first stop was the David Minor theatre, a eat and drink movie theatre located a block down from my hair salon. No, I unfortunately didn’t see a movie but I do plan on going back with the other half for a movie. Second stop was Smith Family Bookstore, a local family owned shop that I also has a location near the university (which is the one that I frequent). I loved the exposed brick of the two story bookstore and the overall organized chaos of the store. Next door to Smith Family is the Museum of Unfine Art and Record store, a quaint and quirky space that could get anyones creative juices flowing. A couple blocks further in downtown, down the street from the famed Voodoo Doughnuts, is a wonderful boutique that I hadn’t been to in close to a year–Passionflower Design. The store has literally close to everything–Free People frocks, cute stationary, a flower shop, home decor pieces, and gorgeously unique jewelry.

All I can say is that I totally recommend exploring your own town and going to new places instead of your old stopping grounds. You honestly never know how cool a place could be until you step inside (corny, i know, but true)!

Wednesday Want: Rock Out Floral Biker Jacket

Rock Out Floral Moto Jacket

 

 

A fashion forward jacket that also simultaneously gives off a tough chick vibe? Yes, please!

This floral biker jacket by Jovonnista at Topshop is such a great piece as it can go with just about anything in your closet. From cutoffs and booties to being thrown over a dress to being paired with a great pair of jeans, this jacket would take any outfit from “eh” to “hot damn!”.

Music Monday: Spring Tunes

Above is a playlist that I’ve been making for the past week to get myself more into this new awesome weather we’re having in the NW due to Spring. Be sure to take a look at it, especially if you’re a fan of either The Strokes, Black Keys, First Aid Kit, TV On The Radio, Best Coast and similar artists. I’ll definitely be updating it throughout the rest of the season so if you like it, make sure to follow it!

Happy Monday!

Happy First Day of Spring!

IMG_3192

As you can see, the flowers are starting to bloom and we all know what that means–Spring is here! Honestly though, Spring is by far one of my favorite seasons as it can be warm enough to enjoy being outside during the day and at night it cools down to just the right temperature for a drink by the outdoor pit.

All I can say is that Cheryl, aka Miss Rhode Island, got it right with “…because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket”.

Have a good one!
