OOTD; You are what you love

Some summer days are so thick with humidity that there is no point in wearing anything more than the necessities. This was one of those days. As a girl under five feet tall, I always assumed I could not rock a maxi. But the reality of it is, I totally can and so can you! Being short does not mean you cannot rock long hemlines. It just means you've got to select the right ones. They're great for chillier summer evenings, outdoor shows, and those days when shaving your legs seems unnecessary. My go-to fashion advice? You can rock anything as long as you wear it with confidence and I stand by it. So grab something weird and wear it proudly. Or don't. Your choice.

OOTD; The Quiet Things No One Ever Knows

Yesterday was crisp, breezy, and entirely too misty. So, I took the opportunity to wear my new found blazer. By that I mean, I could not find this blazer for the entire winter/fall and just when I had given up hope — there it was. I was almost a little afraid that with a pixie cut + a jacket I would look like a little boy. Thank goodness for headbands. I was concerned that I would feel less feminine with a pixie cut, but I don't find that to be the case. In fact, I feel more confident and put together with a pixie. It's easy to hide behind your hair and I'm glad I ditched it for a little while, any ways.

I spent my Saturday in Cleveland with my sister, Lisa. We went to every farmers market we could find. Eventually we ended up at the West Side Market — which is the most insane market in Cleveland. But hey, cheap, fresh, and local produce? Worth it. We ate tacos, took these photos, and she made raw coconut macaroons. Which if you were wondering, take four hours to dehydrate, but the texture, crunch and taste more than made up for it.

Oh, and this is a band t-shirt for the band Brand New. I got this when I was in high school and only wore band shirts, jean skirts, and checkerboard slip-on's. I always feel awkward doing close up's of my shirts because it's like, "hey, look at my boobs!"

Remix: Black Booties

one | two | three | four | five | six

When I bought these boots, I had no idea that I would fall in love with them. They were on sale at Target for under $15. They are the most comfortable and versatile shoes, EVER. I only wish that I had went back and bought a few more pairs. I've worn these for hours on end and just about every kind of weather. Nothing beats a good pair of shoes.

OOTD; grey flag

When it comes to sunglasses, I typically stay within the same style — oversized and square-ish. I took a chance on these Sunglasses Warehouse glasses. They're the perfect glam shape and paired with a bold red lip, I felt ridiculously fancy.

Any weekend I kick off seeing my favorite band with Abby and Skyla is a good weekend. If you haven't listened to Saintseneca yet — you're missing out. I've had a lot of favorite bands at a lot of different moments in my life, but very few of them have moved me like Saintseneca. Not to mention, these dudes (and lady) put on one helluva show that somehow surpasses their recorded production. If I've given you one thing, I hope it's Saintseneca.
