Untitled039093forever 21 top and skirt, modern design tungsten ring (c/o)

Creepy twin Kates!

This little set isn’t supposed to be reversible, but I just couldn’t help it. I’m all about matching sets right now – they provide the instant-outfit convenience of a dress with the versatility of separates. And an (almost) reversible set is like a reversible bikini – four outfits in one!. But more like a bikini for someone whose idea of working out is swearing at the tv through the first ten minutes of a Jillian Michaels workout, then retreating to the familiar comfort of her sofa. Or for someone living in a landlocked, water-restricted state. So basically, perfect for me.

Let’s move from the painful subject of bikinis and – ugh – working out to something more fun – accessories! I got this sweet tungsten carbide ring from Modern Design, and while I’m usually more of a gold jewelry person, I’m loving the modern, menswear vibe it has. Perfect to pair with a girly little set, and the only accessory this outfit really needs.

Happy Halloween!! I’m off to finish making costumes for my dogs…

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!

out of the woods

Of course, immediately after my new camera arrived the temperature dropped to single digits.  Until it warms up again, here’s a new favorite shop I came across while perusing Etsy: Norwegian Wood, the creation of designer Angie Johnson, is based in Montreal and turns out an astounding variety of wearable clothing and accessories.  I can’t get over the vintage-meets-modern feel of the pieces, especially the lingerie, which is maybe just too pretty to cover up…

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?!
