Kids These Days

Kids these days... they dress so much better than I do, and chances are they spend way less time, money, and effort thinking about the elements of their perfect little outfits.

Jennifer Williams' colorful illustrations of the coolest children in existence make me want to reevaluate my life. I mean, I try so hard and never look this good. Seriously not fair.

But enough whining. On the plus side I have 14 new style role models to look up to (well technically, to look down on...).

Cheers to surviving Monday!

Mad for Plaid

Anyone that knows me well knows of my obsession with 90's. The grunge era specifically has a special place in my heart right alongside dark chocolate and coffee.

I wish I could time travel back to the early 90's as a 20 something adult, but seeing as that's not currently a possibility, I'll settle for the comeback of plaids, flannels, loafers, dark lipstick, and rich crushed velvets. 

I love the modern take on plaid from this editorial and have channeled its influence into my recent purchases, including this lovely dress from ASOS. It's perfect for the warm October we've been facing in LA and will look equally adorable when the weather cools and I can pair it with some knee highs and combat boots. Gahhhh I can't wait till winter!
