what i wore: Sunny Sunday

As i have begun to document outfits here, i have realized how "low budget" my wardrobe is.
This is definitely not a bad thing, or a good thing, i guess i just realize when i write out where all my clothes are from that they are usually $20 and under finds.  I have several key, nice pieces.. but really most of my other stuff is from budget friendly shops.   I love a good bargain, and love love love.. making it look like it came from somewhere fancy.  I appreciate a good, nice expensive find (always) but i also know how my style constantly changes... and cant justify spending much on 'trendy' pieces, strictly staples.  For work i cant wear color, only blacks, grays, brown, whites... etc.  So when it comes to nice clothes that are work-friendly i am definitely more okay with investing in them, slowly but surely i will build up my wardrobe... but i have a feeling i'll never be satisfied. :)
I just love to shop, and love to get dressed!

What i wore: Rainy Sunday

Today really is just a cold, rainy, slightly miserable kind of day.  its progressively getting colder and colder as the time moves on and i would've stayed in my pajama's all day long, but i had a brunch date with my friendsie :)
We tried a cafe we've been dying to go to forever. ( i mean any place known for their red-velvet pancakes sounds pretty amazing to me )
really... quite possible the best breakfast ive ever had. 
Somehow sundays always turn into shopping days, and end up at loca lime for $1 tacos.
love them.

 striped shirt: madewell
blue shirt: forever 21
pants: h&m
booties: thrifted
bag: schuler&sons
cowl: h&m

If you live in the Charlotte area, you must try Terrace cafe.
The service was great, and the food was mouth watering!

Happy Sunday Friends!

style: what i wore

So, when thinking of the types of blogs i like looking at... the pictures i enjoy oogling over for hours...etc. i always come back to style, & fashion.  
I, in no way shape or form am a "style blogger" (heck i have no idea what kind of blogger i am) but style is  what i enjoy to look at.. and i love getting dressed, so why not right?  Inspired by a convo with mary ellen  last weekend... im jumping on board.. and on occasion i think ill post an outfit or two.  What do you think? Also... there is a fun and exciting feature and i will be adding to our blogs.. and i think that outfit posts definitely go hand in hand! (more on that soon!!!)
 jacket: H&M
shirt: forever21

Music Monday: Coldplay: 'the scientist'


One of my all time favorite bands, Coldplay.
I never seem to tire of them, or any of their albums.
I'm sure most everyone who was anyone in the "thousands" (2002 to be exact) has seen this video.... 
But its one of my favorites, and i thought about it this weekend and had the urge to watch it, and wanted to remind you, (or share with you for the first time if you haven't seen it) One of my favorite songs, and incredible pairing video. 
it gets me everytime.
One of my all time favorite lines from a song, and words that i remember daily, 'Nobody said it was easy, no one ever said it would be this hard'
So good, and inspiring.
 So crazy, and such a good reminder to always wear your seatbelt. :)
 hahaha seriously.

Music Monday: Lana del rey

Her name has been buzzing, so i downloaded it last week.  With all my time in the car lately commuting to work.. i have almost every song memorized by now ;)
 She has been described as a "self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra.  Which may sound funny... but after listening to the entire album.. i would have to agree.
its different. and intriguing.
something new.
Also, even if her music isn't your cup of tea.. she is killing me with her flower crowns and her vintage style.

'Born to die' buy it here and here.
