leonard and church

top - Zara // all watches - Leonard & Church // necklaces - vintage
bracelets - Madewell, In God We Trust // ring - diy

Had the wonderful opportunity to preview a new line of watches the other day called Leonard & Church. It's a great brand with a really cool idea - to provide quality, timeless, luxury watches at an affordable price point. Working in the fashion industry I know just how much it actually costs to make your favorite t-shirt, and in turn the crazy mark up that's added on before it gets to you! So I'm totally on board with Leonard & Church's model of bringing the product directly to you! The whole line is beautiful.. I want them all! And at this price point, I can totally afford them all! Such a great everyday watch to coordinate with any outfit. 
Find out some more and support them on Kickstarter! So excited to see they already hit their goal!

Finally getting around to posting again after a little hiatus! (Sorry!)
But I just got to spend the most amazing weekend out in Lake Tamarack with the most fabulous group of people! I can not get over how magical of a place it was. I mean I can't believe I didn't know about it sooner! It's seriously only one and a half hours away from the city (what?!) but you feel like you are hundreds of miles away. It's so quiet and peaceful (except for our Saturday night Whitney dance party), I took so many naps.. in the forest! on a hammock! floating! in the lake! There is even an island to row to, where you can subsequently get yourself a fresh margarita, courtesy of our island neighbor friends. It truly is the most lovely place with the most welcoming lovely people. I could not have asked for a better weekend getaway!! 
Must. go. back. soon.

a short situation

Kenzo printed culottes // Alma Culottes // Tess Giberson leather shorts // Zara cropped palazzo pants // Alexander Wang basketball shorts // Carven cut out shorts

It's starting to get REAL steamy over here, and the thought of wearing skinny jeans that will just end up sticking to your body is getting less and less appealing. All I want to do is show a little leg in slouchy drapey shorts. And while I'll always love a good pair of short shorts, never have the thought of culottes and bermuda shorts looked so good.
Looks like I have a shopping mission this weekend.

I always love exploring this city, but more recently I've oddly been drawn to abandoned buildings. Maybe it's the Domino Sugar Factory destruction/renovation that I walk past everyday.. who knows. Something about the decay is incredibly beautiful and intriguing, but at the same time it's so sad to see the history torn down and replaced by shiny new high rises.
And while this location isn't truly abandoned (it's a friend's rooftop/building in midst of renovation) it's always so fun to stumble upon beautiful gems like this one right in your own backyard. Can't wait to find more hidden treasures in this city!
And I mean.. what I wouldn't give to live in this loft (once it's done)!! ;)
