Sorry if I've been a little MIA this week. B and I are in the process of moving, which always blows, but it's our home, so it's a little exciting, too :-). Soon I'll be posting about such thrilling topics as spackling and interesting color shades of grout. Just kidding. I would never torture you all with such things. However, I am going to be trolling the interwebs for home inspiration and creative ideas - so if you see anything cool, send it my way!

Topshop jacket/cape
H&M dress
vintage locket
Topshop bangles
KMRii bag

Jeffrey Campbell clogs

PS I am so obsessed with this jacket/cape hybrid thing that I busted it out in over 90 degree weather. Whatever.

I've been trying to decorate my bedroom for about a year now. Love decorating but it's never at the top of my to do lists. Decorate your place now before you become apathetic! Also your jacket's cute :)

I love how you wore that large jacket and still look feminine and beautiful! The olive looks great against the grey dress, very military chic!
