50-shades-of-bluestripe 1

Despite my attempts to be/think like a more interesting woman, I continue to wake up loving T Swift & the latest trends in just about everything. Before your mind starts firing off thoughts of basic this, basic that – hold your horses because I have an exception up my sleeve. I originally titled this post “50 shades of blue” but felt inclined to delete the 50 because, that’s right, I have not touched a book in the Shades of Grey series or seen more than 1/4 of the preview for the movie. I may not be the most interesting women in the world, but I am pretty stoked to have some proof that I don’t do everyyyyything the masses do.

P.S I feel inclined to reveal that (to my not-so-pleasant surprise) these J Brand jeans are meant to be……….capris. Yes, they look like perfectly hemmed denim skinnies on this short-legged-lady but I’ll tell you what, Cath is not complaining. What better than being able to throw on a pair of jeans, without a care in the world aka sans alterations?  If you have short legs or are in need of a pair of capris, head to Bahama Shop or find the link below.

rva ootd postAside from my tom boy phase in middle school, I have never considered myself much of a nature person. The more I dabble in photography & The Crystal Press – the more I have grown to appreciate a beautifully kept garden or a tree in bloom. The majority of the world would call this a simple case of maturity but I like to think of my process of appreciation as unique to myself in a semi-narcissitic way. That being said, while I loathe matching in #ootd form – I can one hundred percent enjoy how my Freeps tunic matches the blossoms in these photos from Byrd Park in Richmond. Stay tuned for this top to make an appearance as a bathing suit cover-up in St. John in a few weeks! Cheers to multi-purpose clothing, right?
