Left Handed Kisses

A breezy, beautiful Thursday like this calls for a peaceful stroll through the vineyards. Maybe not in these shoes though, considering my heel-wearing skills are too rusty to navigate the bumpy, dirt paths. I really should have walked to a nearby winery and treated myself to a nice lunch or something in this posh, 70's influenced ensemble. Instead, I took a miracle berry tablet (if you don't know what a miracle berry is, stop reading and start googling cuz they're the epitome of magic) and snacked on lemons/limes. Not as glamorous as wining and dining but it's impossible to not feel sophisticated in a floppy hat + a tie blouse. By the way, this tie blouse with a deep neck is the one top I never realized I desperately needed until I put it on my body. I never knew I could love an inanimate object on this level. Like is it legal to marry clothes cuz it should be. 2016, get on it!

Left Behind

 What's black, white and read all over? Me in this ensemble! *ba-dum-ch*. Dumb jokes aside, the heat is already getting on my nerves a smidge but you know what? I'm slowly learning to live with the weather change. Yeah, I still wear tights under my shorts in 90 degrees like a lunatic. That's only because legs look way cooler when they match my bright red lips... and my necklace, and my Pappwatch, and oh my earrings! But at least I'm matching the season with a vibrant, punchy color so I wouldn't totally stick out like a sore thumb at some kind of sunshine-filled, spring/summer outing (well, I probably would for my social awkardness, but that's neither here nor there).

On the Regular

 Another failed attempt at color blocking but who knew I'd love this outcome of this outfit more than I orignally thought? A solid turquoise jacket to pair with this white crop top and green jeans sounded interesting in my head. You know what's millions times more captivating and better than solid colors though? Patterns. Patterns with bold, eye-grabbing colors. That's why when I spotted this vintage shrug while thrifting, I mentally gave up on the color blocking plan and bowed down to the majesty that is this shrug. And bonus: It  has all the colors of this funky watch that Pappwatch kindly sent me. I've got to give them props for restoring my faith in watches. A lot of watches out there look so bulky and blah, which why you'll hardly ever catch me wearing them. But these gems are a different story. Made out of paper, the Pappwatches are light as a feather yet very well constructed. They also have loooads of rad, attention grabbing prints on their site so definitely check them out if you got time (or if you don't...cuz you don't have a watch...get it? lol @ dad jokes).
