OUTFIT DETAILS / cardigan: zara t-shirt: nordstrom rack (similar) high-waisted jeans: nordstrom rack (similar) boots: target (similar)

I’m finally getting around to re-stocking my closet after the decision to go back to basics late last year. I picked up a few things I had my eye on from Zara including this wrap-around cardigan. It’s the perfect neutral shade and super cozy; I want it in every color now!

Oh, and I finally got my camera back in working order so expect some more little What I Wore style posts and snaps I’ve taken lately. xx

Back today with another installment of my Double Exposure series. Special shout out to Vanessa for sending me Lucy’s oranges POV to match with Dani’s. If you come across any tow photos on IG that share a striking resemblance and want to submit for a chance to make it on a future post, feel free to email me. It’s so fun putting these together!

1. What Do You Carry? is a voyeuristic view into what creative types carry around with them.

2. My girl Heather talks about important traditions. Can we talk about how amazing her macrame fiber wall hangings are?!

3. A man puts household items in his beard and then photographs it. Genius.

4. This spicy thai chicken soup sounds so delicious and perfect for a wintery night dinner.

5. I have this Everlane shirt in my shopping cart and I know its only a matter of time until I click “checkout.” It pairs perfectly with my new high-waisted black skinnies!

PS; I was featured this week on Angel’s Ask A Freelancer series alongside the lovely Tara where we answer some questions and give tips on booking clients.

OFFLINE LOVE / strawberry cereal bars from trader joes’s; sonia kashuk highlighter crayon on my cheekbones; fancy new underthings; the rain giving my car a much needed car wash; sitting shoulder-to-shoulder working in a coffee shop with my love; getting a nice tax return; FINALLY paying off the extra deposit on my rent; crawling around on the floor with my nephew; reading a book with my dogs on my lap; glenn and i chasing each other around the house + laughing; and making time for the people i love.

READING / Since my last Currently post I started and finished Wild and I absolutely loved it. Reading it begged the question, could I do something like hike the Pacific Crest Trail alone? The answer is probably not. I respect Cheryl Strayed so much for what she endured and think of her as a huge inspiration. As for my next reading adventure, I downloaded the first Divergent book on my friend’s recommendation and am excited to start that series.

LISTENING TO / Lately whenever we drive together Glenn insists on being DJ so I’ve been listening to his playlist which consists of a lot of his sound cloud likes, A$AP Ferg, and (much to my dismay), Antioch Synopsis -____- He’s lucky I love him haha.

LOOKING FORWARD TO / My best friend turns 30 this year and come July she and I plus some other girls are celebrating her birthday weekend in the city where we’ll be staying at this adorable apartment. I can’t wait!

LOVING / Even though its been on the shelves awhile now, I’ve recently fallen back in love with my Naked2 Urban Decay palette. I’ve incorporated it into my everyday-wear makeup routine because you really can’t go wrong with brown/golden tones!

What have you been up to? Feel free to copy + paste your own answers in the comments or if you post elsewhere, leave a link. xx

As always, thanks to the lovely lady Danielle for the inspiration behind these posts.
