sheerly neon + neutral

 sunglasses: burberry | bracelet: india
 bag: kate spade | wedges: urban outfitters | jeans: anthropologie

tunic: club monaco | brazier: urban outfitter

 You can't really due to the filters on the pictures, but this was my way of playing up sheers, while still being on the more conservative side, since I'm currently in a small town, where typically things like sheers and exposed bras are taboo. Since my tunic from club monaco was a nude color, I paired it with my neon orange kate spade bag and bright violet wedges for contrast. I hope you like it! xoxo, Riley

a very delayed post

A very delayed post, from a day overzealous with procrastination and distain...mostly due to finals in school this week. Fear not friends, I have pictures, but due to my current state of nothing but studying, putting off studying, and sleeping, I've neglected to form an outfit around it...yet. So this is a picture of my Chloé aurore medium leather bag that I got from net-a-porter on top of the cute box they packaged it in for free(I recommend shopping with net-a-porter for great customer service!) in my closet. Enjoy!

spring time in the south

top: juicy couture | belt: anthropologie | skirt: h & m
heals: h & m
bag: club monaco

Today, as I anxiously waited for the arrival of my new purchase, Chloé's aurore medium leather bag, I decided to take a few pictures of my outfit. Nothing fancy, and you can't see my skirt (sorry, bad photographer), but it hits about mid thigh, and has a slight un-even hemline on either sides. It cost about $5, and is a seafoam green/mint julep, but you can practically get it in any color at h & m. Also, my belt is pretty jaded in the picture, but have no fear, I love it, and it will thus relapse in many more pictures to come. My bag came in the mail from, and I will post pictures this weekend when I have lots from my sister's graduation. Surprise surprise, I had yet another interview thursday, at a smaller boarding school in the south, and I feel pretty confident in my interview. The only downside is they don't allow boarders to have cars, which one would expect of a new england boarding school, but in the south where everything's so spread out....I'm kind of dissapointed, but that's no deal breaker. Wish me luck!

uneven hemlines

Wide-leg pants can kiss my ass, I'll stay with uneven hemlines and trousers! Up and coming trend to wear right now is the uneven hemline.
