I'm a-a Diva

Vest: Elizabeth and James via TheRealReal
Jeans: AE (old)
Belt: Club Monaco (old)
Shoes: Charles David
Necklace: Chloe + Isabel 

In no way am I implying that I'm a diva, despite the title of this post. But this shade of lipstick, courtesy of MAC Cosmetics, is amazingly perfect and certainly lives up to its moniker. These photos, by the way, don't accurately give it justice - mid-shoot we started having technical difficulties. To the best of my ability, I would describe the color to be a smooth blend of raspberry and wine colors infused with a touch of blue undertone. It's definitely a perfect color for Fall....don't mind me rocking it mid-Summer, it's the diva in me wishing it were Fall already! Happy Friday everyone!

I'm suffering from a case of vacation fever. So I thought I'd pay homage to my daydreams of being afar by wearing my Balenciaga zebra print skirt, that I nabbed from TheRealReal, and this utility style vest. I do have an upcoming road trip that I'm looking forward to; we'll be driving from Texas back to NorCal. While it's a long stretch from being as exotic, I always appreciate the opportunity to tour different states. That being said, anyone of any suggestions for some yummy eats on the way?

When you're zooming around town in a moderately modified Honda Civic without AC, a hot summer day is an absolute nightmare! That's when I pull out my favorite, trusty Phillip Lim tank. The oversized arm holes and cotton material allows a lot of airflow-- a necessity when one tries to brave my car's sweltering heat.  Needles to say, I can't wait for Fall to come already...who's with me?
