nights out

nights out

Hey, long time, no blog. Things got so hectic around here that my mom actually came into town to help with childcare. One added bonus of that is that all of a sudden, we had a babysitter and were able to have some nights out! 

equipment silk dress mindful closet

This dress was a gift from my husband for our anniversary last year (fourth anniversary = silk/linen). And yes, I do pick out my own gifts. ;) I love that it's a simple base for cool jewelry, (like this necklace from Blush Boutique), but I will probably eventually get it hemmed evenly to make it a more classic look. 

mindful closet: african mud cloth dress

The weather this spring has been cooler than usual, which has been nice. I wore this when we met some friends at Old Standard (great vibe, decent food). I'll be honest, this dress/tunic/thingie is always on the chopping block for me. I last wore it here (and loved it), but for non-fashion-crowd events, it always seems like a little much. Maybe I'll chop it down even more and make a top? Thoughts?

Anyway, I have been taking outfit photos and saving ideas for posts, so hopefully I can get back to regularly scheduled programming soon!


obsessed with: snakeskin

obsessed with: snakeskin

My obsession with snakeskin is not going away. I love how the pattern and texture can act as a neutral, but also add interest to an outfit. It will also never go out of style. Here are some of my current favorite iterations:  

Although snakeskin has traditionally been reserved for accessories, I love that it's showing up now as a pattern on clothing as well. 1) Chaus Snakeskin Print dress at Nordstrom, $129; 2) Joie Drew C Snakeskin Tank at Shopbop, $83; 3) Equipment Liam Silk Python Print Sleeve Blouse at Intermix, $198; 4) Trove Contrast Yoke Tank at Nordstrom, $35; 5) Rhyme Snakeskin Woven Tee at Piperlime, $59


I especially love the Rachel Roy shoes above, they might be added to the wishlist. What about you - do you love snakeskin too?
