I admit, I have a lot of perhaps unhealthy fashion obsessions. For instance, elbow patches. They remind me of my British grandfather sitting on the couch watching telly. Then this tank top has a pretty daisy floral print that then reminds me of my grandmother, who gets all dressed up to go to the doctor's office. The mesh top gives a contrast that I also am obsessed with, well subtle contrast that is.

I like sparkly things, much like a small child. My friends like to believe I simply like the stares from everyone on the El. They would be mistaken. I prefer to look like a glowing 20's flapper girl because stealing my mother's vintage shirts makes her irritated, naturally. And the icing on the cake is going sleeveless in February, but, no worries, the white attracts the sun.

We love a mixture of vintage and modern and a contrast in sizes. Katie's oversized cardigan and skinny jeans give a great contrast. Animal print is always tricky to work with because a little goes a long way, but this particular animal print is slightly more abstract than the classic leopard print.

I drew a little inspiration from Liv's post for this look, however, in my mind, it included a crisp, white collared shirt. This shirt is a liar. It has an awkward slit on one side and is so flimsy that I usually just wear it to the beach as a cover-up. Not the best to wear in the winter. The next time I go shopping, I'm coming back with a Brooks Brothers shirt in every color. Hey, a girl can dream, right?

I recently returned from an amazing trip to NYC with my mother. With my return, came an unneccesary amount of new clothes. In the months prior, I had starved myself from shopping so I could have the money to spend in NYC. I fell in love with this store called Uni Qlo, where I bought a lot of brand spanking new (and navy) basics. Yes, I know I look like a business woman, but it's nice to pretend I'm old and boring every now and then.

I fell in love with this skirt the moment I laid eyes on it. The asymmetric cut made it such a great statement piece, and I was immediately racking my closet in my mind trying to come up with ways to wear it. And this weird spring weather gave me the perfect opportunity to wear something a little summery. Let's hope the warm days last!
