Sky High

I've seen that color-blocked anything have been really popular for this coming season- and I'm obsessed, especially with color-blocked wedges.  I first saw this style in March and I just can't help but keep coming back to my new shoe dream for summer.  They are such a better alternative for flip-flops, and provide extra height since I'm only 5'4".  In a way they remind me of these YSL "exit shoes" from fall that had the faux fur on the back, since they have unexpected color-blocking on the heel.  They are a summer-y, toned-down version of those to me.   My favorite part though is how they are sky-high, but still have structure so you don't topple over (which is necessity or me since I'm still practicing how to walk in stilettos). I for one, am hooked.  {you can buy these Pierre Hardy shoes here and here, and another option that I couldn't find for sale here}

22 More days of School!

Today was one of those days. Actually, it started out great, then just went downhill from there.  Calls and texts made me have a mini-breakdown coming home (on the bus, of all places), then more calls and texts just got me confused.  Then more and more made me have more mini-breakdowns, and now, all I want to do is go curl up in my bed with ice cream and/or chocolates and pray a bit, because that's all you can do on a day like today.  So, keep me and my family in your prayers please, because that's all I need right now. But (mini drum-roll, please) I was still able to muster up some sense of life and found some spring/mostly summer pictures for a bit of inspiration, ugh, I'm so ready for school to be out, then I'll officially be a HIGH SCHOOLER!  Okay, that was as much energy as I'm getting out of myself for the rest of the week.

Butterflies on Black



As I was searching on Zara last night, I found the most spectacular jacket!  It's self explanatory why I want it, um, what girl doesn't love butterflies and floaty fabric?  It reminded me of a post the Glamourai did here about the butterfly sunnies, and it struck me as something Tommy Ton, or any other street style enthusiast, would catch while in the city.  Now all I need to do is actually purchase it, do you think it would be too hot to wear in August in New York?

Eco Glam

Lately I've been much more conscientious about how "green" I am, with reducing showers (that's also practice for a missions trip with my youth group this summer), caring a reusable water bottle and turning off any lights after I leave a room. With earth day (this Friday) coming up, I thought I would give you a few things that make being eco friendly that much more fun.

    Billows in the Wind

    Even though spring has just sprung, I'm already thinking about my very first visit to New York in August {I know, so far away from now}.  I've been envisioning Glamourai worthy outfits that would ideally be photographed by Tommy Ton ever since I knew our church group's next destination would be New York City, but to my dismay, this week I was told we would have a {gasp} dress code we had to follow.  Instantaneously, all my hopes and dreams were rushed away, with thoughts of jeans and crew neck t-shirts being all I would have the pleasure to pack. {I know, I know, I'm being way overly dramatic, but it truly was crushing to hear those words} After giving this predicament much thought, which included checking the guidelines we had to abide by, I realized it wouldn't be as terrible as I imagined.  Just a few simple rules we have to follow "for our safety" which included: closed toed shoes, no tank tops or shirts that show your stomach, and everything has to go below your knees, oh, and you have to be able to work in every one of the outfits you pack.  That last one completely vetoed maxi-dresses, and now heels or wedges weren't even practical.  But, the no-showing-your-shoulders-or-stomach-rule shouldn't be too hard to follow.  That got me thinking to super roomy, loose tops that could easily look great on there own, or could be tucked into high-waisted jeans.  These are some of my thoughts so far for tops that would allow me to pick up boxes, or go shopping in SoHo- and will be kept in my closet long after I unpack my suitcase.
