dress code :: a life in violation


A DRESS CODE?!
& not just a "no crop tops, no ripped jeans" kinda way,
 no color whatsoever.

Oh I'm sorry, that is not accurate,
 "occasional pops of red and blue"

I mean I barely looked the part for the interview,
let alone the actual job.

😑



 What I Wore: glasses- Kensie, lips- Mirabella "Posy", necklace- Anthropologie, top & blazer- Victoria Beckham x Target, pants- thrifted, flats- vintage {thrifted}




I mean...

I just want a job where I can BE MYSELF.
Is that so hard?!

I guess until then, I will just be hanging out with these cuddle bugs,
trying to figure out my damn life.

****POSITIVE THOUGHTS****
****POSITIVE THOUGHTS****
****POSITIVE THOUGHTS****

Why is my career/life so complicated?!

"hang on to something long enough, it will come back in fashion!"

When we went to upstate NY to Daryl's House,
I complimented a woman in the rest room for her amazing suede fringe jacket
and said I have one just like it.
She said, "Well if you hang on to something long enough, it will come back in fashion"

Just the inspiration I needed to break out my fringed beauty.
Good thing I don't think it will ever go out of fashion.







What I Wore: glasses- Faniel c/o 10/10 Optics, lips- Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte in "Posh" via Ipsy {LOVING this color!}, necklace- Delphine Leymarie, top- Wren and Ivory, fringe jacket- B&B Department Store {from my 27th Birthday Trip to LBI}, pants- Gap, booties- Cat + Jack from Target




Another thing at Daryl's House that I hope comes back in style is this sweet leopard suit,
I think I should conduct every job interview in this...

Speaking of "hanging on"...
 remember when I shared Version 1.0 of my new eyeglass display in my closet?
I knew the leopard washi tape was very temporary (but pretty)
& it fell apart shortly after:

So I went with some good old twine and it seems to be going just fine!





So good, so far!
I even bought more of those little knobs for under $5 each at Anthropologie
for my collection to grow
{because we all know it will!}

Charlie behind the Warbys?! Spectacular Sunday #3!

My hubby Charlie has always been (a tad bit) jealous of all my cool glasses, 
especially my Warby Parker's,
so he decided to do a Home Try On for some sunnies! 

These are the pairs he picked for his home try on:
 Winston / Eastman / Beckett / Topper 16 / Haskell

Now lets see them on his handsome face!

1st pair Winston in Ginger Lemonade:

2nd pair Eastman in Belize Blue:

3rd pair Beckett in Saddle Sage

4th pair Topper 16 in Jet Black Matte:

5th pair Haskell in Burnt Lemon Tortoise:

With all this Home Try On excitement
 we have been dreaming all day about sunglasses too,
 Warby Parker!
{via Warby Parker's Instagram}

So whatcha think?

Which pair is your favorite?

I think I like the Eastman in Belize Blue the best!

feeling so posh {spice}

This time of year is so pretty! 
Guess all that rain was worth it,
I love these pink flowers that bloom in the front of our little hobbit home

This Victoria Beckham x Target top is so perfect for this time of year,
definitely a favorite from the collection, so bright, well made,
and the scallop details are my faves!





What I Wore: glasses- BonLook, lips- Tarte "Wonder", necklace- Tiffany's {gift from hubby}, watch- Kate Spade {gift from hubby}, top- Victoria Beckham x Target, pants- Gap, flats- Marc by Marc Jacobs




I just love these wild flowers that grow in our yard

Other Faves for Friday: 

This pink beetle is EVERYTHING.
I love my red beetle,
{lots of car talk on the blog this week apparently}
but this color is a DREAM!

I've been loving mangos a lot these days,
and the fact that perfectly match this plate and my tablecloth:

I recently put away my sweaters and ran out of room,
 so I finally opened these two chests that I have had since we moved into this house
and put all my sweaters in them,
such a great storage solution that I already had!
Labeled for convenience 👍

This article on boredpanda is #goals for real.
Lyn Slater is amazing.

I finally signed up for Patreon,
all for more Sword and Scale...
and it is worth it.

Check out all the Podcasts I listen to and love HERE!

We also watched Louis C.K.'s new specials on Netflix,
I thought they were pretty damn funny,
sometimes offensive, but hey that is comedy

Thank God it is the weekend,
the last couple of weeks have been tough.

I am happy my first semester at FIT is over,
a week of "summer" before summer classes start!
