Todd and I have officially booked our trip to the Bahamas. Cue the happy dance. Also, where is my celebratory drink? I feel like this moment deserves one…or two! Having a real pinch me moment.
I’ve never been outside of the US other than Mexico (embarrassing), and I’ve always wanted to go on a tropical vacation. The Bahamas will be a dream come true. A full week’s getaway with handsome. We’re hoping to swim with the pigs, hang out with some nurse sharks, and fully adjust to island life. It’s too bad I have to wait until August for things to kick off- inhumane.
Oh wow. It’s Thursday and I still can’t get out of this fog.
I don’t know what it is, but this week I’ve felt uncommonly sluggish and I just can’t seem to shake it. I apologize in advance if this post is a little lackluster. Exercise and getting outside doesn’t seem to work either, so I just dove into some chocolate ice cream instead lol. Hoping for a sugar high. Any energy will do at this point. We shall see.
Today’s look is inspired by Hailey Baldwin. Her outfit here was the source of inspiration for today’s look. Borrowing ideas from others seems to be a trending topic this week- creative juices must be waning.
As soon as I stumbled upon the outfit via Pinterest I immediately saved it to my “top-secret-blogger-inspo” pin board. You think I’m kidding, but that is the actual title of it. Super imaginative, don’t you think?
Currently kicking myself for not remembering the exact source of inspiration for this look. I can only conjure up mental images of models wearing breathtaking maxi dresses in the chunkiest of combat boots. I want to say it was a designer’s Spring ad campaign in an issue of Harper’s Bazaar?…but I can no longer seem to locate and/or remember specifics.
Trust me when I say this will bug the shit out of me.
Whether it’s a special necklace, an arresting handbag, or not-so-basic shoes, a statement accessory can do wonders for an otherwise simple outfit. Or in my case three at once…
This black dress is as uncomplicated as it gets, minus the asymmetrical tiered hem. An evil eye acrylic clutch, brazen platform sandals, and layers and layers of gold necklaces quickly augment the dress. A few added extras breathe much-needed life into the cotton midi.
