A LITTLE FACELIFT

Ojaivalleyinn1 A LITTLE FACELIFT

This weekend, I did some major sprucing up around this here blog. How does she look? It’s been a few years since my last redesign so I figured now was as good a time as any to make some changes. First up, the logo. I hired my friend, Eva Black, to hand letter The Style Eater in her famous watercolor cursive and it turned out exactly how I envisioned. I mean, HOW COOL, RIGHT? I love it. Thanks, Eva!

As for the design, it’s a Blogzilla Studio theme (the mignon!) and let me tell you, they know a thing or two about making good-looking blogs. Their designs are so chic and minimal. I’ve been searching high and low for a reasonably priced, yet super cool design for SO LONG, I can’t even tell you.

Anyway, take a looksie around. There are a few new details, like a rotating list of my current favorite things (at the top!), some fun sharing tools in the posts, and an easier way to subscribe via feedly, bloglovin, and rss.

Other things I did this weekend:
-almond-macadamia milk lattes from go get em tiger
-venice in the rain
-looked at all the wedding venues

Wearing:
Free People dress
Birkenstocks (mine are Amalfi’s)
Baggu Bag

WEARING THIS ALL SUMMER

I’ve been wearing this particular outfit (or a version of it) as often as humanly possible. I’m not even kidding, either. See here, here, here, and probably Saturday. A black camisole + vintage Levi’s 501 shorts. Simple but so, so comfortable, especially in this hot summer-ness that we’re experiencing. I wore it on our Brooklyn day in New York. I wore it on our vacation in Lake Chelan, Washington. I’m wearing it right now, probably.

Zara camisole (old, similar here)
Vintage Levi’s 501s
Converse
Coach handbag

Here, here (or is it hear, hear?) to a summer uniform! I’ll be honest with you. Since that photo was taken in mid-May, I’ve switched footwear from Converse to these Birkenstocks. If a better shoe exists on this planet, I’d like to know, because Birks are literally the best things ever. If they’re wrong, I don’t want to be right. I swear, I’ve never met a more divisive shoe. People either hate them with every fiber of their soul and being OR they love them so much that it becomes their sole footwear and sometimes best friend. I’m definitely with the latter group. So a black camisole + Levi’s 501s + Birkenstocks. What’s your summer go-to?

ONLY WANT DAINTY THINGS, NECKLACES INCLUDED

dainty necklace2 ONLY WANT DAINTY THINGS, NECKLACES INCLUDED

I’ve been on a necklace kick recently and my philosophy on necklace-wearing is: the daintier, the better. I’ve never looked particularly good with chunky jewelry on and I’d rather it not make a huge statement, if we’re being honest, so dainty and delicate it is. I’m the same way with rings, too. Dainty all around!

Of course, that’s just me. Lately, I’m all about figuring out what’s ME. You know…WHO AM I? What works with my skin and hair and overall demeanor? What feels right? What looks best? Well, I think I’m a gal who appreciates a dainty gem or two.

WEARING: Maya Brenner Mini Letter Necklace, Of A Kind x Aili Black Diamond Bar Necklace

WANT THESE: Another Feather Dart Necklace, Grace Lee Turquoise Bezel Necklace, Sashi Solitaire Necklace, Jennie Kwon Art Deco Necklace, Brvtvs Constantine I Necklace

And now, a filtered, real-time, stare-off-into-le-space #selfie of dainty necklaces in action:

CURRENTLY BUYING: STRIPES ONLY

striped shirts1 CURRENTLY BUYING: STRIPES ONLY

My wardrobe is experiencing a surge in stripes as of late and I’m not complaining for a second. When I’m online shopping, it’s like my eyes ONLY see stripes and I buy all of them. I kid you not, these are all purchases I’ve made within the past month or so. It’s becoming a problem. But they’re so classic and I can wear them forever and ever, right? That’s my line of thinking anyway. Also, tax returns and stuff.

Anyways, I’ve always been partial to stripes and tend to prefer the Breton or sailor variety. I’m also constantly trying to replicate this outfit at least once a week, if not more. In that stripe pile above are some of the new wardrobe additions (TAX RETURNS, I SAID). Oh but the Skargorn. You HAVE TO get the Skargorn. Also, it’s on sale right now + 20% off the sale price. Almost makes me wish I didn’t pay FULL PRICE FOR IT, SHOOT. Some of the stripes I recently bought, plus a few more that I still need:
