Ciao Bello

I love stripes. I would wear them everyday if I had enough different ones.

I saw this t-shirt at Eataly had to get it. If you haven’t heard, Eataly is THE best place for Italian food and goods. It houses three restaurants, Nutella bar, espresso bar, wine bar, small grocery, etc. So if you haven’t gone before, go now…Nutella bar!!!

Usually I wouldn’t go for any shirt with writing on it, but this one was just too perfect so I changed my ways. I’ll do anything for a good set of stripes 😉

What clothing/accessory would you do anything for? Shoes? Bags?

Happy Easter to all my Peeps!

Finally! It’s warm out and it couldn’t have come at a better time. After filling up on absurd amounts of chocolate yesterday, morning runs are becoming easier to do with earlier sun rises and rising temperatures.

Warmer weather means less layers…and more sangria ;). I bought this ballerina skirt from H&M 4 or 5 years ago but this was only my second time wearing it. As I mentioned in my last post, I’m trying to wear everything in my closet more…especially those pieces I always skim over because they are ‘good’ clothes or  because I believe, for some reason, they’re for special occasions.

Hope you all had a great Easter weekend. What are you looking forward to wearing this spring?

I love these Chanel espadrilles that I purchased last year. The only issue is that I’ve been too afraid to wear them because I don’t want to get them dirty. I figured I paid so much for them that they better last! If you don’t wear these things why do you buy them? To keep in your closet forever just to say you have one? No thank you!

This year I’m making an effort to wear the things I’ve set aside as ‘fancy’ or ‘good’ because they need some love too.

I like my lattes with vanilla, candles burning 90% of the time, froyo whenever possible, black & white & grey…maybe some blue, brunch when ever possible, adding emoji’s in all texts, the bachelor…the list goes on 😉

Manic Mondays

Mondays are just too crazy sometimes, so I think everyone should slow down and enjoy a latte (which will make you start again haha)

My favourite colours to wear are these above: black, grey, and white. If I could wear this every day I would. Simple, crisp, and never out of style.

You can incorporate these colours into every season, I tend to wear more white in the summer and more black in the winter.

Since these are already distressed jeans I didn’t feel bad cutting the extra length off the bottom (I’m on the shorter side). I know FP had a pair like this recently where the bottoms were distressed as well. Usually if I really like a pair of jeans I’ll gem them shortened but that can lead to the calf not fitting properly… luckily this DIY tailoring worked out well!

Another bonus of wearing darker colours…no stains appear if you happen to spill your latte as I always seem to do!

Unique?

What makes a blog unique? How does one seem to outshine others? How the hell do I get followers?!? – these are constant thoughts of mine

It seems like every Joe has a ‘lifestyle’ blog these days… and I’m obviously including myself in this generalized statement and you know what, it’s hard to tell how it’s going to go! Is my site going to be popular?? What can I do to increase views/likes?? I’m really not into the ‘you like me and I’ll like you’, it makes it all seem like a facade.

I wanted to take a gander at blogging because I think it’s a fun idea! Who wouldn’t want to have a mini photoshoot of themselves and to get feedback and inspiration from other people from across the world? But I feel like it’s all the same. Don’t get me wrong, I actually quite enjoy this, but everything is the same!! There are so many other people with either the same outfits or same ideas that I’m posting…and here I was thinking I was unique 😉

Things I’ve come to realize which may make a popular blog:

  1. Quality of photos – this is something I’m lacking as I’m lazy and it’s easier to use an iPhone
  2. Being pretty – all of these girls out there are so beautiful! (I never show my face ha!)
  3. Being skinny – does anyone ever eat?? It’s honestly all I ever think about…now I feel I’m hungry again
  4. Clean and crisp – less is more in this situation. If there are too many pieces in one outfit it gets confusing and causes people to turn away. Be a minimalist…preferably in shades of grey/white/black with the occasional pop of colour

It honestly doesn’t matter though because it is fun to be part of the blogosphere :)…whether 1 or 100 people see it!

So cheers and hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!

 

Return of the Coop

Things have been ridiculously busy with traveling lately, which is a luxury problem. And I’ve been neglecting HC so it’s time to start posting again!

After spending a few weeks in LA and spending time around all the amazing shops, I felt the need to do a shameless change-room selfie sesh.

I love this light pink and these lace up shoes, which happen to be very trendy right now.

Just your casual look over the shoulder pose…

I wasn’t able to capture a good picture, but the back of this sweater is open which gives the whole shirt a nice flowy feel. I love it and have to try my hardest not to spill anything on the white!

So happy Cinco De Mayo! Hope you enjoy some good food and drinks tonight…cheers!
