Who knew that I could love a jacket so darn much? I definitely didn’t until my sweet boyfriend’s mom sent me this beauty as a graduation gift (yes, she is kind of amazing). I love that it’s an updated version of a retro favorite (Pink Ladies from Grease anyone?), but I have to say this one takes the cake. It has that downtown cool vibe that the Pink Ladies’ one was lacking, don’t you think? I’ve seriously been living in it and I know that won’t be changing anytime soon. It just makes everything look so modern — even this vintage ’90s dress.
Can you tell how hot I am in these pictures? What gives it away: my frizzy hair, protruding veins or tired looking eyes? Yes, you can also say all of the above! It was about 104 degrees and pretty brutal to try and pose in the little bit of shade that we could find. But honestly I couldn’t go to Palm Springs without wearing this outfit; it’s so retro — it was made to be worn (and photographed) out there. I’ll tell you a little secret: I’ve had these shorts for almost two years and have never worn them! Isn’t that crazy? I guess I felt that two years of being in my closet was a sufficient amount of time for them to finally make their debut!
When it comes to jewelry I’m a bracelet fiend. Over the years I’ve become more drawn to all things gold and/or rose gold. I may be crazy, but I personally feel that there’s something a little more elegant and edgy to them than silver. It’s always fun finding over-the-top costume-y jewels to wear on occasion, but I also like things that can be worn on the daily mixed with a variety of metals. I knew that this bracelet that was kindly gifted to me from H.AZEEM would be one of those perfect go-to items to wear regularly. It’s dainty enough to be stacked with others yet it has enough sparkle to be the center of attention.
