All Summer Long

Dress - House of Wilde / Hat - UO / Necklace & Bracelets - Vanessa Mooney / Shoes - Converse

It was 1989, my thoughts were short my hair was long
Caught somewhere between a boy and man
She was seventeen and she was far from in-between
It was summertime in Northern Michigan
Ahh Ahh Ahh
Ahh Ahh Ahh

Splashing through the sand bar
Talking by the campfire
It's the simple things in life, like when and where
We didn't have no Internet
But man I never will forget
The way the moonlight shined upon her hair

And we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long
- Kid Rock

I definitely feel a little bit southern country here!
At least my version of country...
Braids - Check
Straw Hat -Check
Long Flowy Dress - Check
And then to edge it up a bit my converse!
I love this whole look and think it's great for any thing summer!
BBQ's, Picnics, Pool Party's and going to the beach!


Runaway Train

Dress - Evil Twin / Boots - Dolce Vita / Jewelry - Vanessa Mooney

Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a light
You were there like a blowtorch burning
I was a key that could use a little turning

So tired that I couldn't even sleep
So many secrets I couldn't keep
Promised myself I wouldn't weep
One more promise I couldn't keep

It seems no one can help me now
I'm in too deep there's no way out
This time I have really led myself astray

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

- Soul Asylum

On the way back from Tahoe we had 
been driving on the scenic route which is quite deserted...
And we saw the dirt road that led us to this train track.
Which I thought looked so amazing since there is nothing else around!
We hopped out and snapped some quick shots,
I was wearing this Evil Twin dress and I though it was so fitting with deserted area. They are both some what dangerous and that is what I wanted to capture..


What I Got

Top - UO / Shorts - Unif / Jacket - Brandy Melville / Shoes - Converse

Early in the morning, risin' to the street
Light me up that cigarette and I strap shoes on my feet
Got to find a reason, a reason things went wrong
Got to find a reason why my money's all gone
I got a Dalmatian, and I can still get high
I can play the guitar like a mother fuckin' riot

Life is too short, so love the one you got
'Cause you might get run over or you might get shot
Never start no static, I just get it off my chest
Never had to battle with no bulletproof vest
Take a small example, take a tip from me
Take all of your money, give it all to charity

- Sublime

Another Tahoe post!
I'm loving how the leopard and sunflower print play off each other.
It's fun, youthful and fresh...
Which is perfect for summer and vacations!


Sea of Love

Jacket - Nasty Gal / Dress - Slip / Boots - Dolce Vita / Necklace - Vanessa Mooney

Come with me my love
To the sea
The sea of love
I want to tell you
How much I love you

Do you remember
When we met?
That's the day I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you

I have always had a thing for vintage slips especially when they are wearable.
They are so delicate and easy to wear.
You can wear them casual (as I did above) or throw on your best
 sky high heels, red lipstick and then you will be ready to hit the town, old Hollywood glamour style!
As you know I have to always roughen up my more girlyish pieces of clothing...
So I added some bad ass boots that are half leather/half suede which play up this dress to perfection.
Lastly throwing on my go to leather jacket and rosary type necklace.
If you don't own any of Vanessa Mooney's jewelry then go now and get some she has the best!
If you look at all my other posts you will see that I am always wearing her pieces...


The Waiting

Dress - c/o of Love / Jacket - LF / Boots - JC / Rings - Vanessa Mooney & Vintage

Oh baby dont it feel like heaven right now
Don't it feel like somethin from a dream
Yeah I've never known nothing quite like this
Dont it feel like tonight might never be again
We know better than to try and pretend
Baby no one could have ever told me bout this

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part
- Tom Petty

If you have never been to Tahoe then I must say....
It's a must!
Here is part of my recent vacay up in there.
Aesthetically it is absolutely gorgeous....
Red woods, and the big blue lake!
This was right outside the house where we stayed.
I love the contrast between the rose print dress and the studded jacket
and the scenery is a plus too!


Happy 4th!!!

Born down in a dead man's town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering up
Born in the U.S.A.

Just wanted to share the two looks that I am loving for this 4th of July!
They are so easy and you probably already have some of these pieces in your closet.
With my first look, just look and see if you have a white, red or blue solid dress...
then the fun part comes where you can go a bit wild with accessories!
With my second outfit I got a bit more creative with my scarf 
(where you can get online at Brandy Melville!)
I wrapped it around as a top and knotted it...
pairing it with high waisted cut offs keeps the look played down a bit.
Then adding so Vans which are so Americana really finished the look!
What will you wear this 4th...?
