five photo friday: breckenridge, colorado.

Happy Friday! About two weeks ago my fiance and I went up to the mountains of Colorado, to a great little town called Breckenridge, for a quite awesome wedding. We knew the wedding would be awesome, but we didn't know the scenery would be so amazing! Here are a few photos I took while we were there.

This is the amazing house we stayed in!

Have a great weekend!

a wrinkle in time.

This is a very basic, woke-up-late-and-rushed-to-work outfit. Emphasis on the rushed and hence the wrinkles. But sometimes basic black and white is best.

What I'm wearing:
Blouse: Old Navy (link)
Skirt: Express (gifted, old)
Shoes: Steve Madden via DSW
Necklace: made by me

I love this necklace, but boy is it noisy with the jingling. You can hear me coming a mile away.

bohemian like you.

This is one of my favorites outfit as of late—this is actually the second time I've worn it, but the first time I photographed it.

Photos by my fiancee.

What I'm wearing:
Top: Target (link)
Dress: H&M
Boots: ModCloth (link)
Necklace: Target
Sunglasses: Target
Tote: The Kills show, old
Eyeshadow: Anastasia Beverly Hills "Catwalk" Palette

So I totally impulse bought this top a couple weeks ago thinking there were a ton of ways I could wear it, and then when I went to wear it for the first time I struggled so hard with how to style it. After many failed outfit attempts, it went best with this dress—so until I find a better way, I think this top may just be for layering over dresses. All that aside, it's super cute.

These boots were actually my bridesmaid shoes for my one of my best friend's recent wedding, and I absolutely love them. 

I also did not plan for most of this outfit to be from Target, but oh well.

sunday inspiration #16: triangles.

Happy Sunday! Sunday inspiration is back, and now we've moved onto shapes since we pretty much ran the gamut on colors.

3. Geometric Pattern Poster via Etsy (no longer available)

It's so funny, we picked triangles a while ago but during the last two weeks at work I've been working with triangles a lot for a big concept project. They're so versatile!

What's inspiring you this week?

summer brights + patterns.

I can't believe the summer is almost over and this is my first outfit post of this summer involving shorts.

What I'm wearing:
T-shirt: Threadless (old)
Shorts: J. Crew (sale!)
Shoes: Keds
Bag: Cath Kidston
Necklace: Francesca's Collections
Eyeshadow(s): Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette
Lipstick: Revlon Colorburst in "Unapologetic"

So, there's a bit of a story behind these shorts. I saw them in the store in Georgetown and fell in love—but not so much with the $75 price tag. And, lo and behold, about two months later, I was looking at the sale section on the J.Crew website and there they were, but for $24! Way more do-able. And coral, polka dots & scallops?! I could not say no. 

Also, crazy/bright makeup was for the Jimmy Buffet concert, because when in Rome...

Have a great rest of the week!
