the ultimate clothes friends

In this edition of clothes friends: We have none other then Alexa Chung and Poppy Delevingne, now these two are the real deal when it comes to being clothes friends. They’re so freaking stylish, hence their “IT” girl status and long time BFF’s to boot. And they just happen to be on the coolest road trip ever. Don’t you just wish you could ride shotgun and sing along to the radio with these two? I DO, I DO!

flock to the Birkenstocks

comfort is key when it comes to me and getting dressed, it’s probably my number one criteria when it comes to purchasing something. Hence why i love flowy articles of clothing ( * noted in my shirt captured below). Which is why when i heard the somewhat ugly sandal from germany aka the Birkenstock was being called the “IT” shoe of the summer, i couldn’t contain my excitement nor my debit card, I had to have them immediately.

Some words of wisdom aka words of Rachel:  when something comfortable  is being classified as “cool” in the fashion world, you don’t  ever, ever think twice about buying it,EVER, i don’t care what it is!

Pants: BDG – Urban Outfitters
Jean Jacket: Vintage Levis

get it, got it, good …because as we all know, for the majority when people hear the word OVERALL they imagine an old man dawning the jean creation on a farm in the company of cows and baby horses. Well let me tell all a ya’ll that ain’t the truth. The dungaree can be worn on the busiest of city streets to the most hip and happening of gatherings. Just look to Alexa Chung or the Man Repellers Insta feed, the proof is in the pudding!!

Did I mention they’re also prime for jumping in? Which is clearly one of my fave past times as demonstrated by my last few posts!

matchy matchy with a gnome

I bet you’re all wondering, where in the world is her icy beverage? After all she did declare it the must have accessory of summer. Well folks I’ve changed my mind, and i do that a lot, so get used to it. As of now it’s all about garden gnomes! He’s just so darn cute he takes any outfit to the next level. PLUS he’s rocking those overalls pretty hard, i think we make a cute couple.

Aside

Eye heart you

my dream of becoming a real life emoticon has come true. Really who wouldn’t want to have hearts as eyes? Anywhooo i digress, I’m all about white this summer, scary, i know. Especially when you’re as messy as me. People keep telling me to take chances, so this is me taking a chance! Let’s see how long i can last without staining this bad boy!

friends who dance together stay together

Not only do my friends have some pretty rocking dance moves, they know how to dress. Yes even the one in the polar bear boxer shorts ( hiiii michelle) … didn’t Alexander Wang make pyjama shirts cool/ expectable to wear in public … case in point she’s on trend 😉

ps – my dutty wine is so lame, short hair just doesn’t have the same dramatic effect

Take me on vacation … Greece is calling my name

I may not being going anywhere exotic anytime soon. Which sucks, i agree. But that doesn’t mean i can’t dress as if i’m somewhere, where palm tress are plentiful and the ocean is as blue as blue can be ( cough cough GREECE ). Denial can sometimes be very inspiring when it comes to getting dressed!

Holla at your girl if you’re going somewhere tropical in the near future!
