from the cradle to the grove

two things i've been feeling lately: the rooftop, and this hat. i love hats. especially when you have carroty orange hair every couple days. say adios to this mop. it's gone. the relationship is over. who has the time to upkeep this? it's like a red lip during the day---a challenge. r.i.p. big red. you were fun while you lasted. this is also my second installment on the "tourist in your own city" tour (the first, union station), this time at the grove, riding the trolley and all. the "ride" lasts about 2 minutes. it takes longer to load the thing than the actual ride. but i loved it. the weekend is here. going on a little road trip with some friends. a little work, a little play, a lot of pictures.
top: stylestalker, peacock jacket: winter kate, velvet jacket: twelfth street, shoes: sam edelman, jeans: genetic, body chain: bliss lau

  12. love the way you show your style, you are consistent and true to yourself. The grey and blacks look good an you and not dull. The scarf really turns the volume up, so well done. The hat is indeed a good trick to hide a bad hair day. Love the shape of it and it matches your style and outfit.

  15. I love the nearly monochrome color palette broken up by grey denim and the feather pattern. Also, velvet changes everything. In my world, in completes an outfit.

  49. Ashley! just checked out the soixante neuf ring..beautiful! Considering whether to buy it..and survive off eating air bubbles for the next month at uni...I'm going to subtly suggest that you do a really generous giveaway competition...with that exact ring..and fix it so that I win. Yeah? Yeah. Sorted. Brilliant. Oh yeah and if you could throw the majority of your wardrobe in with that give away ..the one that I win..that would be quite nice really..xx
