Remember the gorgeous sunny weather I wrote about in my last blog post? Well it’s all a distant memory, and all I have to remember it by are these photos. We woke up to cold and dreary weather on Tuesday and it’s been downhill from there. It even snowed on Wednesday! I obviously keep forgetting that I live in Michigan and there is no guarantee of nice weather until at least June. Even then we get three, maybe four months of good weather and then it’s back to cold. I really should look into moving somewhere warm and tropical, I am so not built for this! Sorry to be such a downer, but isn’t it amazing how the weather directly effects your mood and energy level? All I want to do is lay around and watch Netflix in my pajamas. I’m in desperate need of some vitamin D, maybe I should look into getting one of those sun lamps. Anyone know if they work?

Yellow is one of my favorite colors and this sunny outfit helps lift my spirits a little. This adorable skirt is made by a brand I discovered a few months ago called Fleet Collection. All of their pieces are original designs made in Los Angeles and they are so beautifully crafted. I was really impressed with the quality, especially for the price, and it fits like a dream. If you love vintage inspired clothing as much as I do, then I highly suggest you check them out. You will not be disappointed.

Well I am definitely going to be praying that this weekend warms up and that the sun re-appears! What is the weather like where you are? I hope it’s lovely.

Truly,

Tamara

Wednesday’s Love List – Ruche Fall Favorites

Happy hump day everyone! In this weeks edition of Wednesdays’s Love List I am featuring one of my long time favorite on-line stores, Ruche. They carry such beautiful feminine vintage-inspired pieces and always put together the most inspiring lookbooks. Today I chose some of my favorite fall pieces to share with you, I hope you love them as much as I do :).

1-Wednesday's Love List - Ruche Fall Favorites 5

1. As you probably already know by now, I am such a sucker for anything plaid. This plaid jacket would be such a great layering piece.

2. I love the idea of something a little unexpected, like wearing pastels in the fall. I absolutely love this peach dress that gives the illusion of being two pieces. I’m dying over that collar and the back pleat detail!

3. Fall florals are so on trend right now and I’m jumping on the band wagon! I love the moodier feel of this darker floral dress that could easily take you from day to night.

4. Navy blue was everywhere over the summer and it looks like that trend is going to continue through the colder months, which I couldn’t be happier about. This skirt would definitely become a closet staple.

5. I’m obsessed with mustard and I’m obsessed with hats, so put the two together and the perfect fall accessory has been created :). This hat would add the perfect touch to so many outfits.

6. I’ve been on the lookout for a new fall purse and I think this might be the one. I’m loving this satchel with it’s super cute mustard colored tassel!

I hope these pieces provided you with little fall wardrobe inspiration for the rest of your week! :)

Truly,

Tamara

Wednesday’s Love List 8-27-14

By the looks of this weeks Wednesday’s Love list I’m starting to accept the fact that fall is coming. I find myself more and more drawn to pieces that will help me transition into the colder months. Maybe it’s the return of the pumpkin spice latte that has helped to ease the pain of summer coming to a close ;).

1-Wednesday's Love List 8-27-14 #2

1. I love this quilted top and skirt from Target. Pair them with tights and oxfords for a cute preppy look.

2. This is such a pretty boho dress from Avenle. Just add a cardigan and some ankle boots to make it more fall appropriate.

3. Are you shocked that I’m in love with this blouse from Forever 21? Of course not, it has a Peter Pan collar! ;)

4. I absolutely adore this felt hat from Old Navy. It also comes in a pretty wine color.

This blouse and hat would pair perfectly together with jeans for a more casual look or dressed up with a skirt.

5. These slim jogger pants from target would be perfect for running errands, while still looking cute.

6. I’m really loving all of Old Navy’s graphic tees lately. They are super versatile and would look equally as cute with the above jogger pants or with a blazer and a skirt for a more polished look.

I have been looking for more casual, but still stylish pieces for days when I don’t feel like dressing up. These two pieces fit the bill perfectly. I would just throw on a pair of Converse sneakers and be ready to go grocery shopping :).

I hope you are all having a lovely week so far.

Truly,

Tamara

My sister and I are super close, but we could not be more different people. In truth, she’s the better sister. She is a very patient and tolerant person, with one of the kindest souls I’ve ever known. I, on the other hand, am the sister with the fiery personality (no wonder my favorite color is red) and a stubborn streak. On top of our personality differences, our styles could not be more different. She leans toward more simple and classic pieces, while I have always loved trends and taking more risks. As I’m getting older I am definitely developing a taste for more classic pieces, but I think I will always have a little bit of a risk taker in me. As a child and a teenager, I loved looking different than everybody else in school and was never bothered that I didn’t quite fit in style wise. I think that is something that will always be a part of me. If I like it, I wear it.

I was on the phone with my sister the other night and sent her one of these pictures to see what she thought of my outfit, and guess what? She didn’t like it! She kept calling this crochet bow a “red puffy bow”, which of course infuriated me. Also, she didn’t like that the reds were not exactly the same shade (I am not always a matchy matchy kind of girl). This really threw her for a loop! When I got off the phone with her I started to have a ton of self doubt about posting this outfit, which is very unusual for me. The one thing I always have been confident in is my sense of style, so why was I letting this get to me (pms and lack of sleep was not helping)? This blog is meant to be a place to share MY personal style. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll look back and wonder why in the world I wore this “red puffy bow” and that’s ok, because at least I was being true to who I was at the time.

I say all of this, not to bash my sister (we all have opinions), but to show how different we all are. I encourage you to stay true to yourself no matter what others opinions might be. Even I slip up and doubt my sense of style once in a while, but I usually come around and stay true to myself. I love this fun, casual and kind of cutesy look. So here it is, sister! Me and my “red puffy bow”! :)

Truly,

Tamara

I don’t own a lot of skirts, I’m more of a dress kinda gal, but I bought this skirt from Modcloth a few months ago and I absolutely love it. I love it so much that I ended up buying it in 3 other colors! It has the mid-century vibe that I find myself continuously drawn to with the added bonus of being super comfortable. I also love how versatile it is. One of the main things I think about when buying new clothes is the versatility of the item. Can I wear it in the winter or summer? Can I dress it up or down? I don’t like limiting my clothes to one season or occasion. I like to challenge myself to come up with many different ways to wear an article of clothing. For this look I decided to go a little more casual than I usually do. I paired the skirt with my Converse and a cute T-shirt (I don’t often wear T-shirts, but I really loved the message on this one) and finished it off by adding a red belt and earrings for a pop of color. This outfit would be perfect for a night at the movies or even a game of mini golf, don’t you think?

I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend! :)

Truly,

Tamara
