All that noise and all that sound

burgundy Jeans- Tillys
blouse and flower clip-F21

burgundy is like the color that never goes out of style for me.. i can wear it all the time.. 
it has and still is my favorite color.

I was listening to Coldplay while attempting to think of a tittle.. "speed of sound" came up.. i love Coldplay, i can listen to all their albums all day long.

Scissor print

scissor print dress-peppermint
blouse (mint) and ring-Romwe

Growing up in Peru i always had trouble spelling the word scissor...
it was the hardest word to remember how to write... i knew it had a 'C' i just didn't know where and how many "S's" were there... and just cause is my second language i still have trouble sometimes spelling it.. don't hate :P (thank you auto-correct)

i love how this outfit came out.. bought both items separately a while back, not even thinking they would someday match.  the dress has few of the dots on the color of the blouse which works out nicely, i think.

Lace & trim

cardigan and flower clip-F21
shorts and tights-UO

If you read the previous post, you know i was going to get the Nike shoes to help my back somewhere in the future.. well not anymore! my sweetie surprise me with them yesterday! i'm so thankful :) he is soo sweet!

So i have this new thing to create outfits together. Maybe if you are like me sometimes and dont remember things you have or run out of time to put outfits together the way you would like to, here's an idea i came out with:
whatever comes to my head either drawn from inspiration somewhere or a new combination of colors  or pieces or whatever comes to my mind during the day, i jot it down on my iphone notes by describing the items of clothing that would go together... then I make sure it goes together by trying it on (when i have free time) and i put a smiley face next to the outfit combination ive tried and know it works... 
all this i keep in my iphone notes (numbered) so whenever i have to think of an outfit to wear for going out or a certain event instead of standing in front of my closet without a clue and making a huge mess, i just look at my notes and get ready.. definitely practical and less time consuming :)

striped dress (as a top)-Billabong

with one more wedding to attend in a few weeks, my sweetie and i went to buy our friend's wedding gift. we also stopped by the Nike store.. He was determined that i should try a pair on to see how much support they give, compared to the kind of shoes i wear all the time..
of course i kept saying "but they dont match my wardrobe" 

regardless I'm realizing i should probably invest in a good pair of sneakers that give good support.. im sure my back would thank me.

Circle scarf

flower clip-(from a hat)
heel oxfords-Bakers

Had this dress for a while but i couldn't find a belt, that was not black, that would fit well and would go with it... 
My sweetie gave me this belt in one of my christmas presents and it works perfectly! 

For a while now I've liked shades of grays.. but lately I'm more prone to light browns again ( a color i used to like and wear a lot in my early high school years)..
so here i am now wearing almost all shades of brown with a hint of gray on my bag.

The Artist

sweater dress-heritage
scarf and tights-h&m
bow ring-F21

My boyfriend knows how much i love vintage, so he took me to see the movie "the artist" a new film in black and white... what we didn't know is that it was a silent movie! 
it definitely felt like we traveled back in time. it was a good film but for sure a one time movie for us.

on our way to the movies he had to stop by his old store "BC surf and sport", where i saw this cute purse... and yes that is a metal tooth clasp, yikes!

 yay for colors..
