Futuristic, chunky, tribal-inspired collars are all over the place, and while you could splurge on a Mawi beauty (see collage 2), now is the perfect time to snag a cheaper version (most are under $50) from Topshop or Asos!

blondies

My sis, looking laid-back in a diaphanous pleated skirt and casual tank.

My mom’s arm candy, after Beth and I convinced her to pile a little on.

A little shopping break for drinks and key lime pie at Blue Heaven.

Obsessed with my sister’s delicate two finger ring!

Sooo delicious.  I’m scouring online recipes to try to recreate it!

With my mom, blonde #2.

on beth: american apparel tank, asos skirt, oliver peoples sunglasses, kenneth jay lane spike bangles, brass spike cuff from thailand, natacha fringe bag from argentina (a gift from me!), dolce vita wedges, nars lipstick in heat wave, essie polish in geranium

Though my blog is mostly dedicated to my own personal style, I couldn’t resist photographing my family’s style and accessories!  I spent a good deal of this vacation trying to convince my sister to start her own fashion blog, but she’s being stubborn about it.  Who will help me convince her?!

tropical snow

forever 21 cardigan and giraffe bangle, topshop skirt, vintage sash (worn as headband), vintage sunglasses, aldo shoes, asos clutch and spike bracelet, urban outfitters tiger bangle

I’m finally back to taking some outfit photos after a week’s vacation!  It might be cold and snowy in Denver, but I’m just not feeling it today, so I paired my new tropical print skirt from Topshop with a leopard cardigan to shoo away those winter blues.

So guys, my hair has reached that point where I can’t do anything with it!  Styling it forward like a boy makes it cover my eyes, but parting it/styling it like long hair looks just as silly.  I knew it would reach this point eventually when I got my hair cut short, and I’ve been dreading it.  So far, I’ve resorted to headscarves, which are great, but I don’t look forward to styling my hair the same way every day for a year!  Seriously, if you have any tips, ideas, youtube videos, headband or hat stores, etc. that would help me, I would appreciate it a lot!

Thoughts?

geometry

1. cut out diamond ring  2. triangle bolo tie necklace  3. wrapped triangle earrings  4. triple arrow collar necklace  5. upright triangle ring  6. cut out hex bangle

Even though I’m a little upset with Topshop at the moment, since they seem to have lost a pair of shoes I ordered in the mail (seriously, you don’t provide tracking info for international delivery?!), I’m loving all the geometric jewelry they have right now.

meltdown

1. topshop cutout aztec studs  2. asos cord and chain bracelet  3. topshop spike thread studs  4. asos spike stretch bracelet  5. asos zigzag enamel triangle earrings  6. asos cord and arrow charm necklace

I just got back from a weekend in the mountains to find that my favorite UK retailers had updated their accessories departments with colorful, tribal-inspired, spike-laden jewelry.

I can’t decide which piece I like best.  Do you have a favorite?
