As close to wild child as I typically come.
But I have a feeling this summer is gonna be a bit more adventurous. 

I wore this out for drinks about a week ago. My boyfriend took these photos a day or two later while it was rainy and humid out, hence my crrr-rrAAzy hair.

Back here I categorized the typical moods of my outfits - I'd call this one a hybrid of 4 (mildly inappropriate drama queen, hello leather short shorts) and 5 (snuggly person who doesn't ever want to get out of bed, enter massive nubby sweater).

Time took the girl out of youth,
but I hope it never takes the youth out of the girl.
Happy Thursday, y'all.

Turban: Anthropologie
Vest: Anthropologie
Ring: gift, Francesca's (or Cartier if you're fancy) (thanks Emma)
Necklace: Paper Dolls St. Louis (thanks Julia)
Dress: Forever 21
Belt: thrifted
Shoes: Clark's

I wore this to work a couple of weeks ago.

I cannot tell you how many times I've worn this vest. It is outlandish and silly. What's even more outlandish and silly is now I kind of want ANOTHER DENIM VEST. Like this one. Or this one.  Or this one. Or this one if I was feeling extremely sassy.

All this begs the question: how many denim vests does one person need?

The answer is one, friends. One.

So I need somebody to stop me from buying number two. 

These shoes, however, would be a perfectly reasonable thing to buy two of, because they are the JAM and I wear them almost every day. If you've ever wanted a pair of booties that are walkable, universally flattering, and multifunctional within your wardrobe, these are the ones. I've heard from friends that the black ones are adorable too. 

This necklace was a Christmas gift from my darling roommate Julia, who got it where her little sister works in St. Louis - a boutique called PaperDolls


Needless to say, my awesome pal slash new blogging handyman Allen Dayag took these photos again. AND, big news, we're gonna be doing a So What If I Like Pretty Things blog overhaul together! He's very talented, no?

Purse: gift, Kate Spade (thanks Mai)

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you, the glorious photography work of one of the most eligible bachelors in the city of Chicago, Mr. Allen Dayag

Allen and I spent a day gorging ourselves on coffee and baked goods in the West Loop.
This is what I wore.

I wish I could claim credit for this vest - alas, the credit goes to my fabulous roommate who bought this for an office Sexy Ski Lodge costume party. (I know, coolest office ever.) One lady's costume is another lady's casual wear.

I love this denim. It's available here.

More tough/neutral than most of the things I wear, but like I said before, I think the pendulum is swinging toward bold basics for me.

Compulsively putting my hair up and down, of course.

The texture on this vest is incredible.

Hat: Anthropologie
Blouse: Anthropologie
Necklace: Forever 21
Coat: Anthropologie
Pants: Joe's Visionaire
Shoes: Clark's

This time last year it was in the 70s, but even so I'm just happy we broke 50 today.
I wore this out to a wine bar with my darling roommates on Saturday night.

This hat is something of a show stopper, I have to admit. 

My boyfriend took these photos - my big old DSLR isn't easy to work and he did really well. It's still weird to have someone else take the pictures besides me...

This wire heart necklace is still one of my absolute favorites.

Get on over there and like it for new info, discussion, preview photos and general merriment. 

Monday Monday Monday, here we go.
