Off to Vietnam!

Hi Everyone! First of all, I'm posting this from my phone so it'll probably look different from my other posts, but I wanted to get a post up about this. You can probably tell from the title, but I'm going to Vietnam! I'm going with my family for 10 days. I'm on the bus to Chicago to fly there as I type this! There are a few outfits I wanted to get up before I left but I guess they'll just have to wait as packing took priority over posting the past two days :)

I'll definitely do some kind of post with photos from the trip, but probably not outit posts considering I packed for the weather(90 and raining, and lots of hiking/being outside). I'm so excited to share my experience with all of you when I get back! Talk to you soon! :)

PS - Here's a photo of one the places we're going. Sapa, Vietnam. Isn't it beautiful?! (Taken by Dan Ballard)

Scarfbelt & Wedges

So, I'm not going to lie, this outfit is from a few weeks ago. For some reason, I've been off my styling game lately. I've even been shopping quite a bit, but then my new stuff just sit there because I don't have the energy to style them. I think I'm just ready for fall. I've been seeing a few fall inspiration/fall line posts, and they're making me so excited to be able to layer again. I miss my layers!

Anyways, I wore this outfit to a performance of the musical I stage managed this summer. Where my theater geeks at?? I love stage managing, but it doesn't hurt that I get to dress up for each performance :) When I first chose this outfit, it didn't have the scarfbelt added yet, but I thought it needed a little more color so I tied this scarf as a belt!

Oxfords & Stripes

Lots of new things in this outfit!
1. I'm wearing a tiered shirt. I never ever thought I would look good in a tiered shirt, but I tried this one on and actually liked it. So happy to change up my plain old racerback tank for something more fun. 
2. New shoes! Got these babies on sale for $30 at aldo :)
3. Feather extensions! Gave into this trend..and I love it. It's like a permanent accessory to spice up any outfit. 

Also, had to take these photos inside as I didn't have time during the day. Having studio lights on hand for late night outfit shoots is definitely a perk of being a photographer!
