Scallops and Stripes

18 lovely comments
Hey everyone! My week has been crazy busy and crazy exciting. My best friend's older sister is getting married on Saturday and there have been so many festivities already, including more tonight and tomorrow! Also, tonight I'm heading to the Art Walk on South Main Street in downtown Memphis where all the museums are open late and the trolleys are running for free. Today was my last day at work since I head to DC on August 3rd. I'm excited to get back to my other home, as much as I love Memphis.

Here's an outfit from awhile ago, so not with my lens but I thought I'd share anyway. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

7 days, 7 faves: summer bloggers

16 lovely comments
I can't even imagine wearing some of the layers these bloggers are as it's close to 100 degrees during the day here! Nonetheless, here are my favorite looks from this week:

Claire from De Lune: I'm not sure what I'm loving more - Claire's short red hair or the way she combines seemingly mismatched colors of accessories, from tan to black to brown.

Priscila from My Showroom: A preppier, prettier Carrie Bradshaw, Priscila shows us how to mix not two but three patterns at once: stripes and two types of floral.

Golestaneh from Golestaneh Street Style: An oversized blazer and skinny jeans is still a perfect casual look, but especially with rich tan leather.

Fernanda from Type Fash: I love the way Fernanda pairs neutrals with a big splash of neon. Her look is classic yet contemporary.

Kathleen from Inspirafashion: What’s not to love about mixed lace and mixed neutrals? Plus, the monochromatic booties are a dealmaker.

Willabelle from Pale Division: If you ever sat there wondering how to wear the exact same shade of orange twice in one ensemble, now you know! A small peek of the color under kickass Doc Martens with a high-waisted skirt is the perfect way.

Maddy from Po Mojej Stronie Lustra: Pleats and stripes are a common theme in my favorites but Maddy's look is refreshing with her tied shirt and emerald skirt. And that is one great bag.

I had two clothing accomplishments within the past week. 1.) I bought something that wasn't neutral: the pink J. Crew tank top. It was on sale for 12 dollars and I really need some color in my wardrobe. 2.) I found a way to wear my floral platforms (although I want to wear them with just about everything). I took some photo editing tips from The World Looks Red, giving my photos a faded look.

Yesterday was a lazy Sunday, watching comedians on Netflix all day, like Jim Gaffigan's Beyond the Pale. He made me seriously laugh out loud for about an hour with mostly food jokes. I never thought Hot Pockets, cake and ordering delivery could be so hilarious.

Warby Parker Glasses (and new lens!)

32 lovely comments
Hey everyone! I just got a new lens that I love!! It's the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 so basically it lets in more light than my previous lens, giving my photos a sharper quality and a better depth of field.

Also, I want some new glasses so I ordered five trial pairs from this awesome website, Warby Parker. For every pair you buy, they donate a pair to someone in need. Plus they're only 95 dollars, including the Rx lenses! Such a good deal. So I need help deciding which ones to keep! Which do you like best??
