lace & polka dots.

This was one of those outfits that came together super easily, and I will definitely be repeating.

021519x1-lace-peter-pan-blouse 021519x2-pact-organic-dress 021519x3-lace-urban-outfitters-blouse
What I'm wearing:
Dress: Pact Organic
Blouse: Urban Outfitters via ThredUp
Sweater: Nordstrom Rack, old
Tights: Target
Boots: Amazon
Collar Pins: Dapper & Swag
Belt: Amazon, old

So I actually have this blouse in the inverse colorway from waaaaay back in the day, and when I saw this one on ThredUp I knew I had to get it (I also really need to wear the one I already have, but here we are). It's perfect for layering over basic dresses like this one from Pact (which is sadly no longer available), and I will never tire of lace or floral patterns.

Review: Silk18 Shampoo from Maple Holistics

Long time no blog! February flew by, and I can't believe it's basically the end of March. Hopefully by next month I can get back to a regular posting schedule.

Although I haven't been blogging, I have been trying this Silk18 Shampoo that Maple Holistics generously sent me to try. I really like it—no offensive or overdone scents, not overly drying, and cruelty free!


One thing to be aware of is that it really works best if you follow the instructions (novel, I know), and leave it in for 2-3 minutes. I'm a fast shower kind of person, so I have to make an effort to do this, but it really makes a difference in how my hair feels. It's great for damaged hair, and since my hair is partially bleached & dyed right now (more on that in another post!), I'm making a little extra effort to keep my hair in good shape.

If you have damaged hair (or think you might), I recommend reading this great explainer that Maple Holistics has on their blog, which also ranks the best shampoos for damaged hair.

Thank you to Maple Holistics for letting me try this! Outfit posts & some shopping posts coming soon, I promise!

Thank you to Maple Holistics for sending me this product in exchange for a review.

spooky.

Another dark outfit that I wore to see Last Podcast on the Left live (had to be on brand!).

Photos by my husband.

What I'm wearing:
Jacket: BlankNYC
T-Shirt: Wicked Clothes
Skirt: Amazon
Boots: Amazon
Purse: thrifted
Necklace: vintage

I thrifted this Nila Anthony bag for $2! It's not in the greatest condition, but I couldn't pass it up. It's definitely a statement bag, so I have to be careful what I pair it with. 

Also, these photos are making me miss the days when I could only wear two layers and not freeze. Is it spring yet?

gothy floral.

Remember I said I had a backlog of outfit photos? It's time to post them all! These ones are actually from the end of October.

Photos by my husband.

What I'm wearing:
Jacket: BlankNYC
Sweater: ASOS, old
Skirt: ThredUp
Boots: DSW
Lipstick: Colourpop, "New Rules"

This skirt was about $4 I think and I'm surprised how much I love it. It's the perfect length—the overlay is longer than the actual skirt so I'm not constantly tripping over myself, which is my main fear with maxi skirts. And it goes with a lot of things—including this sweater that I've had for at least six years now! Also, I really love how these photos turned out; my husband has become quite the photographer.

plaid & sparkles.

I'm really going to try to get back on the regular blogging train. I've spent today relaxing more than I have in a long time because it's snowing out! We're expected to get between 5-10 inches, which is crazy, but also a nice excuse to not have to go anywhere.

What I'm wearing:
Shirt: Gap
Skirt: Amazon
Tights: Target
Heels: Clarks via ThredUp
Necklace: ModCloth, old

This is a pretty basic outfit, but you can't go wrong with red plaid and black.
