AS SOMEONE WHO HOLDS A 9-5 AND MOONLIGHTS AS A BLOGGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER IN MY SPARE TIME, I AM CONSTANTLY ON THE GO (I KNOW, I KNOW. I SOUND LIKE A BROKEN RECORD). BUT, PERFECT EXAMPLE OF MY CHAOTIC LIFE: LAST MONDAY-FRIDAY I WAS OUT OF TOWN FOR A BUSINESS TRIP, YESTERDAY SHOT LOADS OF PHOTOS, ATTENDED A BABY SHOWER AND THEN HIT THE ROAD FOR A MINI GETAWAY WITH THE BOY. WITH A SCHEDULE THAT NEVER SEEMS SLOW AND A BAG THAT NEVER GETS UNPACKED, I HAVE GRADUALLY DEVELOPED A FLAWLESS, QUICK AND RELIABLE BEAUTY ROUTINE. ALL THAT’S NEEDED? FIVE FLAWLESS PRODUCTS.

ACES.

BUG PRINT SLIP DRESS | BOW BACK T-SHIRT | HEELS, SIMILAR | BAG, SIMILAR | SUNGLASSES C/O

QUICK POST TODAY!

I FOUND INSPIRATION FOR THIS LOOK WHILE PERUSING PINTEREST (IMAGE FOUND HERE).

*SHAMLESS PLUG* DONT FORGET TO FOLLOW ALONG IF YOU AREN’T ALREADY! MY SHIT IS GOOD!

I’M A BIG FAN OF LAYERING AND IT DEFINITELY COMES ACROSS ON MY ‘STREET STYLE‘ PIN BOARD. LAYERING ADDS A GREAT DEAL OF CHARACTER TO ANY OUTFIT WITH IT’S ADDED DETAILS, TEXTURES, AND PRINTS. THE LOOK I’M WEARING HERE IS THE PERFECT WAY TO TRANSITION INTO YOUR SPRING/SUMMER SLIP DRESSES. A FEMININE DRESS WITH A T-SHIRT LAYERED UNDERNEATH IS NOT ONLY COMFORTABLE BUT LOOKS V COOL AND EFFORTLESS. LOCATED ABOVE THE MASON-DIXON? A LEATHER MOTO JACKET WOULD BE THE PERFECT TOP-OFF.

HAVE YOU TAKEN THE LOVE LANGUAGE QUIZ YET? IF NOT, YOU SHOULD. ALTHOUGH CHEESY, IT CAN BE FUN AND EVEN EYE-OPENING. IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD ABOUT THE TEST, IT IS AN ASSESSMENT WHICH UNCOVERS YOUR PERSONAL LOVE LANGUAGE. THIS PROFILE EXPLAINS YOUR PRIMARY LANGUAGE OF LOVE. THERE ARE FIVE IN TOTAL: ACTS OF SERVICE, GIFTS, WORDS OF AFFIRMATION, PHYSICAL TOUCH AND QUALITY TIME.

ONE FRIDAY EVENING AFTER SOME DRINKS, TODD AND I DECIDED TO TAKE THE QUIZ FOR SHITS AND GIGS. WE BOTH ENDED UP WITH THE SAME RESULT. OUR LOVE LANGUAGE IS QUALITY TIME. IT WAS NO SURPRISE TO US AS WE REALLY VALUE OUR ALONE TIME TOGETHER. OUR US TIME USUALLY INVOLVES A QUIET DINNER, EXPLORING THE CITY, GRABBING A CUP OF COFFEE OR DOING SOMETHING OUTSIDE- ALWAYS CHOCK-FULL OF CHATTING, GOOFING OFF AND LAUGHING AT EACH OTHER. IT’S THE BEST.

IF YOU’RE AS TERRIBLE AS I AM, YOUR MIND FINISHED THE TITLE OF THIS POST FOR YOU.

THE RESULT WAS A TWO-WORD PROFANITY.

UNFORTUNATELY FOR YOU, I AM NOT DISCUSSING MY FAVORITE EXPLICATIVE TODAY (I COULD GO ON AND ON), BUT RATHER THE CULT BRAND: MOTHER. EVEN MORE SPECIFICALLY, THEIR JEANS. MOTHER JEANS ARE INVENTIVE, WELL-FITTING AND BADASS. MOTHER ALSO DELIVERS DETAILS THAT TAKE THEIR JEANS UP A FEW NOTCHES. DID YOU KNOW THEY WERE ONE OF THE FIRST BRANDS TO INTRODUCE THE NOW–WILDLY POPULAR STEP HEM? LIKE THE ONE’S I’M WEARING HERE? IT’S TRUE.

HAPPIEST OF HUMP DAYS TO YOU, FRIEND. I HOPE IT IS THE BEST ONE YET.

TODAY WE ARE GOING TO TALK BOOTS. SPECIFICALLY, WHITE ONES.

UNBEKNOWNST TO ME WHITE BOOTS ARE QUITE INTIMIDATING? THIS PAIR CAME IN THE MAIL A FEW WEEKS BACK AND EVERY TIME I WEAR THEM I RECEIVE AN UNGODLY AMOUNT OF ATTENTION FOR THEM. ARE THEY TRULY THAT SHOCKING? IF YOU SEE THEM AS SUCH, BY ALL MEANS, CLUE ME IN BECAUSE CLEARLY I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY.
