I lived out all my Spice World dreams in London with Claire.
Highlights: tea, VA museum, the tube, tesco, evan song, shoreditch, wandering, street art, english breakfast, jaffa cakes, top shop, brick lane coffee, bleach london, wah nails, royalty, kate middleton in general, and most of all…quality time at the flat with Claire.
Sneak peak of my vacation to London with Claire. Here’s a glamour shot (#selfie) of us in Trafalgar Square. This trip was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Narrowing down these 300+ photos is going to be a fucking crazy. Stay tuned…

And to think…we -all- used to be blonde!

* My 24th Birthday was amazing! Thank you to everyone who came over to celebrate. A special thanks to Conor who made the weekend so fantastic. I hope you enjoy these pictures of some very dear friends of mine. I’ll be back with a fashion post at the end of the week. Cheers! -24 year old me!
Here is Claire’s take on the dress-layering that has been featured on the site pretty often. It’s amazing what you can do with a LBD. Claire proves that if it’s short enough (which, let’s be real, all of her dresses are), you can throw a skirt over it to give it a much different look. This purple skirt is also a wardrobe staple as it can be worn as the pop of color for an outfit – or as a neutral. Purple is a hot trend for this fall/winter so if you’ve been on the fence about the plum hue in the past – say fuck it and give it a shot.
She’s also modeled the look with both sneakers and wedges – showing both a casual and more night/going out look.
The sneakers were black & white when Claire bought them from H&M and then she took a highlighter to them like crazy only Claire can. And there is the beauty in disco high-tops.
This is definitely an outfit that, come the cooler months ahead – can be paired with black opaque tights and boots.
Will you be trying out purple or layers this fall?
On a much brighter and lighter note – it was date-night with Claire, which inadvertently turned into an early bird special, with buffet-style ordering of appetizers, and the best key lime pie I have ever eaten.
I wish I could gush more about this pie and show you pictures of how good it looked but no sooner was it placed in front of us – it was gone. All of the food was sooo delish that there are no pictures of them at all. I guess I will have to show some self control next time.
And then there was this fantastic blue truck, and the miracle that Claire wasn’t wearing that color; since she seemed to be wearing almost every other color – like a boss. She almost makes a rainbow when she stands next to it. She seamlessly combines trends like neon and color-blocking – not to mention, her signature tinted tips.
