Sunny Afternoon

Photobucket Photobucket

Dress - H&M

The tax man's taken all my dough
And left me in my stately home
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

And I can't sail my yacht
He's taken everythin' I've got
All I've got's this sunny afternoon

Save me, save me
Save me from this squeeze
I've got a big fat momma tryin' to break me

And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In the summertime, in the summertime
In the summertime

My girlfriend's gone off with my car
And gone back to her ma and pa
Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty
- Kinks

How amazing is the dress??!!
This is my #1 pick for this weekend to wear on Memorial day.
Of course I will add a big hat and sunnies to protect myself from the sun.
And.... probably a statement necklace!

Tank - UO / Lace Shorts - Free People / Wedges - JC / Sunnies - Sabre
Bracelets - Thailand finds & Vanessa Mooney

I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going
In the sunshine of your love.

I'm with you my love,
The light's shinin' through on you.
Yes, I'm with you my love,
It's the morning and just we two.
I'll stay with you darling now,
I'll stay with you till my seeds are all dried up.
- Cream

Ok so I know I talk about how much I looove the 90's
I also love to 60's & 70's.... 
where they rocked high waisted pants and shorts,
just like these awesome ones by Free People.
 AND boys never gave girls a hard time for wearing them!
They rocked their halter tops with no bras and just looked overly free and carefree.
These women were my inspiration for this post!
Peace, Love & Happiness....


Keep Your Head

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Dress - Saltwater Gypsy from Chictopia / Boots - JC x Solestruck / Hat - LF

The room's green
It's got writing on the wall
It's got one chair
It's kinda small

Dirty shoes
Running past the door.
And then you go round
Beat yourself up,

Ten minutes to go,
And I wanna go home
Ten minutes to go,
Yeah, I've got to go home
Ten minutes to go,
And the air, it don't feel clear
Everybody disappear, you're
In it on your own
- The Ting Tings

I'm a sucker for anything 90's...
So needless to say when I saw this flower romper in the Chictopia shop I snagged it.
Now normally I would throw on a pair of black boots and call it a day
When I saw these beauties I knew they would be my new go to boot.
The color is so fab and great for summer!


Do You Want To

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Dress - BCBGeneration / Jacket - Nasty Gal / Boots - JC

When I woke up tonight, I said I'm
Gonna make somebody love me
I'm gonna make somebody love me
And now I know , now I know, now I know
I know that it's you
You lucky, lucky, You're so lucky!

Well, Do you, do you, do you wanna?
Well, do you, do you, do you wanna?
Wanna go where I've never let you before?

Well, Do you, do you, do you wanna?
Well, do you, do you, do you wanna?
Wanna go where I've never let you before?

- Franz Ferdinand

Now you must know by now that I love pairing soft  pieces with tougher edgier pieces....
So here I have this pretty and soft looking dress
and I made it not to girly by adding
 my moto jacket and some bad ass boots!
As for accessorizing ....I like to play it simple.
Mainly I would stack up bracelets if anything.
And as they say...
less is more.


Do You Realize?

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Shirt Dress - 5 Preview / Boots - Alexander Wang / Sunnies - Ray Ban / Belt - Vintage

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize - we're floating in space -
Do You Realize - that happiness makes you cry
Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round
- The Flaming Lips

It's no secret that I love denim!
denim jeans, overalls, tops and jackets....
This over sized shirt dress is denim done right in a dress style.
Denim can easily be over done when it comes to dresses
New Swedish 5 Preview nailed it with this piece from their Shoreline collection!
Keeping it super short is key that way you are not swimming in denim.
To add my own little touch I added a low slung vintage belt and black boots.


Love Me Two Times

Photobucket PhotobucketPhotobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Dress - One Teaspoon / Jacket - Vintage / Heels - Jeffrey Campbell / Purse - Cambridge Satchel Co.

Love me two times, baby
Love me twice today
Love me two times, girl
I'm goin' away
Love me two times, girl
One for tomorrow
One just for today
Love me two times
I'm goin' away

Love me one time
I could not speak
Love me one time
Yeah, my knees got weak
But love me two times, girl
Last me all through the week
Love me two times
I'm goin' away
Love me two times
I'm goin' away

Every girl needs a go to LBD,
and this one by One Teaspoon has all the bells and whistles you want....
Super short, low exposed back, and drapey fabric.
It's a must have for summer!
 I opted to use a strappy bra for this dress which has become my lifesaver from Brandy Melville because of the extreme open back.
Threw on my heels and grabbed my vintage fur to keep me warm at night.


Over the Hills and Far Away

Lace Dress - Free People / Boots - Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony / Necklace - HM
Bracelets - Black Oak & Derek Jaymes Cuff / Rings - Younger Young & Vintage

Hey lady--you got the love I need 
Maybe more than enough. 
Oh Darling... walk a while with me 
You've got so much... 

Many have I loved - Many times been bitten 
Many times I've gazed along the open road. 

Many times I've lied - Many times I've listened 
Many times I've wondered how much there is to know
- Led Zeppelin

Now that the sun is shinning I am ready to start expanding my color 
palette a bit...
And I am loving chartreuse right now!
It goes so well with turquoise jewelry, very flower child.
I loooove this Free People lace dress... the color, the cut, it is just so 60's to me
which I love! 
I paired these boots with the dress because I loved how the brown and chartreuse 
went together...


Janie's Got a Gun

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Overalls - Vintage / Bra Top & Hat - UO / Shoes - JC 
 Jewelry - Vanessa Mooney, Younger Young & Black Oak

Dum, dum, dum, honey what have you done?
Dum, dum, dum it's the sound of my gun.
Dum, dum, dum, honey what have you done?
Dum, dum, dum it's the sound

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her whole world's come undone
From lookin' straight at the sun
What did her daddy do?
What did he put you through?
They said when Janie was arrested 
they found him underneath a train
But man, he had it comin' Now that Janie's got a gun 
she ain't never gonna be the same.
- Aerosmith

I have been wanting a pair of overalls for quite a bit now....
So when I saw these at our local flea market I was stoked!
I love the oversize look and feel to them.
I chose to pick a lace bra crop top to go underneath to keep it young and sexy...


In Bloom

Tee - Chaser / Dress & Jacket - Brandy Melville / Boots - JC / Purse - Vintage

Sell the kids for food
weather changes moods
Spring is here again

Hey - He's the one
Who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun
But he knows not what it means
Don't know what it means, when I say
- Nirvana

I do love pretty things...
I like them with a little imperfection, kinda like my outfits!
Especially this one, starting with my pretty floral dress and topping it off
with my rocker Chaser tee and finishing it off with an army green jacket and boots!

Top & Bra - Brandy Melville / Shorts - LuLu's / Sheer Blouse - HM / Boots - Matisse
Belt - Vintage / Sunnies - Ray Ban / Necklace - Vanessa Mooney
Bracelets & Rings - Vintage, Brandy Melville, Black Oak & Younger Young

Freak out
And give in
Doesn't matter what you believe in
Stay cool
And be somebody's fool this year
'cause they know
Who is righteous, what is bold
So I'm told

Who wants honey
As long as there's some money
Who wants that honey?
- Smashing Pumpkins

Simple but chic...
That is pretty much how I would describe this outfit.
Black is definitely my go to color and playing with all shades of it.
When I wear all of one color I like to play with the textures of fabric
like the pieces above.
This bra that I'm wearing is one of my all time favorites and every girl must own it.
It will become your best friend and makes every outfit that much better!
Get it at Brandy Melville!
