Save the Elephants with J Crew

All About the Outfit:  I've had these pants since 2003ish.  Whoa!  I found them in my move and am stoked to add them back into my rotation as it's the time of year where I'm more likely to wear pants since it gets so windy here in the spring!  

The shirt I'm wearing is kind of cool because it's a collaboration that J Crew did with the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which is a foundation protests elephants from ivory poaching.  I'm a huge elephant fan so naturally I had to get this shirt.  (Read more about that HERE).

Style Details:  I want to keep a clear thread through this color scheme while playing with prints at the same time.  I rarely ever rock this many pastels, so I was a little out of my element trying this outfit, ha.  

Blazer: ModCloth (sold out; similar HERE)
Shirt: J Crew
Necklace: Ann Taylor
Purse- Kate Spade
Pants- Old as HELL Forever 21 
Shoes- Chinese Laundry
Because I love you, I thought I'd mention real fast that a bunch of Kate Spade items went on sale very recently...including their DINOSAUR themed purses and jewelry.  And, it's a double sale with the code SPICEITUP.  I definitely indulged, so I want to be a pal and pass this intel along to you in case you've been eyeing some of the most interesting novelty purses ever!  CLICK HERE to indulge ;)  Because I'm getting dinosaur purses, I'm basically having the best day ever!  How about you guys?  How's your Tuesday going?  XO

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

Ocean Front Members Only

Is this a style post only I could bring you or what?  Not only did I mix prints (three times, as the Forever 21 shirt is gingham, the ModCloth briefcase is dinosaur printed, and my true vintage skirt is an ocean front border print!) but I'm mixing vintage with modern fashion.  It seems that many vintage-y bloggers tend to stray from any trends, which is silly to me because these bomber jackets are SO comfortable and practical for between seasons weather (and frankly, Members Only IS a vintage brand)!  I tied this whole look together with using the Members Only Satin Washed Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy with these platform heels from Amazon by Dadawen.  I feel the burgundy bookends bounce off the greens and blues nicely.

How's everyone's week been?  Thanks for allowing me to take a week off!  Not only did I have obligations at the Comedy Central Stage and the Upright Citizen's Brigade stage this week, but I was hosting one of my very best friends who came to visit me!  …
