Love Vigilantes

So far, the weather has been awesome this week, even though it was a bit cloudy yesterday and today, it has been so warm out! Everyday I step outside expecting to be cold, and it's such a nice surprise stepping into agreeable weather!

"You know the espadrille" wedges courtesy of ModCloth.com

This outfit is a little more "summer" than "spring", but I couldn't help pulling out this linen tunic from my summer stash when I received these amazing espadrilles from ModCloth. Something about big platforms automatically translates to 70's for me, so I added some vintage bracelets and kept my hair sleek and simple. Wedges are a godsend for me, they are so easy to walk in and have little to no effect on my knees, plus they make me look tall! This outfit was another perfect Monday outfit, the weather was beautiful and I could just throw it on. I've been tying not to overthink my outfits lately, especially on Mondays. A couple of people have asked about the inundation of ModCloth items as of late, and I can't tell until tomorrow!

It's supossed to be 85 degrees tomorrow! I wish it were still the days of skipping class and going to the beach, but alas, I'll be in my office all day...

I don't blame you for wanting to pull this top out of your summer stash. Paired with the skinny jeans and your hair all done like that, it looks simple and yet really beautifully put together.

So so jealous of your shoes! I've been drooling over them at the Modcloth site and Lulu Letty's blog. You styled them so nicely!

Your hair is so lovely, I've chopped all of mine off so I'm getting jealous of lovely haired ladies...

i adore this outfit. its perfect lounging around or chill day. i'm definetly gonna have to pick up those shoes too! :)

happy spring :)

kangaroomom said...

I love the shoes....would you say that they fit true to size? Or how MIA shoes in general fit... I think I'm gonna order them!

Love the blog :) and your hair looks fantastic! I'd also love to see your usual hair routine/products!

Orchid Grey said...

Kangaroomom, I would say they fit pretty true to size. I'm usually an 8.5 and these are actually 8's. but I usually size down in open toed shoes or sandals. I highly recommend them, they're so comfy!
