Picasso, Baby

Slightly more attainable than a Picasso in my casa is Celine's patchwork pendant necklace... which reminds me of Picasso's faces just in case the Jay Z reference wasn't clear. I'm not usually into such chunky gold jewelry but this little guy (or gal) is really speaking to me. I kinda wish I could just get the pendant framed. 

Am I French Yet?

In the never-ending quest to achieve that French je ne sais quoi we all know and love obsess over, here's something new to try that doesn't require stripes or forgoing the cleanliness of your hair.

Berets! While doing my daily camera roll scroll I noticed I had taken a screen shot of not one but three beret-clad Chicistanis, and now... well, I'm here. From Brigitte Bardot to some of my favorite street-style stars, to Gucci (I think this hat's comeback might be the result of the Alessandro Michele effect) I'm dubbing the beret the new wide-brim hat. You heard it here first.

Try out the trend with my favorite option right now from Free People. It comes in camel and black, and for $28, you won't hate yourself if you don't end up sporting it as much as you thought you might. Shop it here.

Cozyville: Burberry Prefall 16

I think my brain has frozen over because all that comes to mind right now is how cold I am. I've been sitting at my desk for a few hours already and the harsh feeling of the blistering wind outside has yet to escape me. This is also a sentence about how I can't come up with a transition sentence right now BUT boy do I wish the below outerwear. Look 1 wins best down jacket in the history of down jackets. For a down jacket, that is no easy feat.

Style Inspo: Ballet Slippers IRL

I would just like to end my hiatus by giving a shout-out to those of you that check this ol' thang everyday for something new. Its so wonderfully strange to see that there are thousands of you lovely people out there interested in more of whatever my brain spews out and I am really very sorry I am not more consistent. BUT one of my resolutions is to be more active here... And not lose my phone this year, but that's a whole other issue on it's own.

I've been super backed up with drafts and random bits and pieces of content that has inspired me - and you know when you have so much you don't know where to even start? That's where I'm at, so I'm just gonna go with my latest google search: satin ballet slippers.

I saw the below editorial of Bella Hadid in ELLE and I am obsessed with everything about it. Particularly the fact that you could probably get yourself a pair of ballet slippers for way less than a million dollars. You could probably even DIY it! So, here I am, searching for the perfect pair of ballet slippers to order and give my shoe game a painless little refresh. If you're not into that idea though, or searching the world wide web for the perfect pair, the below ones are available for purchase riiiiiight here.
