Yellow + Green For Spring

All About the Outfit: Who here is in full spring mode, celebrating with seasonal allergies and all?  Ha, I hope not!  Mine haven't been too bad lately...only when the weather flip flops which has been less than usual, so phew!  Despite not being the world's biggest pastel girl, I found a way to make an outfit fit for spring using a little bit of light colors with a bold and rich green to counter balance the color scheme and make it more "me."  I'm personally loving it because I feel like green and yellow are often under used color patterns!  Thoughts?

Style Details: I LOVE the print on this Ann Taylor top.  The colors are to die for and I love the bird print with all of the intricate details.  I'm not super in love with the sleeves, but I don't dislike them either.  My only complaint is that I got my usual XXS and I'm wondering if after a wash if it'll be hard to get on and off because it is a tighter fit than my other Ann Taylor tops.  The skirt is from Hell Bunny, and I must say that I LOVE their Paula skirts (which is the name of this lovely yellow skirt).  They come in several colors and I must admit that I own a few now as they are so versatile!  (Check out the last time I wore one HERE)

Sunglasses- Cheapo Walgreens find, ha!
Earrings- Kate Spade
Top- Ann Taylor (and currently on sale!)
Shoes- Anne Klein via DSW

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  The Colorado Rockies home opener was on Friday so I went downtown to celebrate that!  And then I truthfully slept most of the weekend because I was sleep deprived from the week before and turned in an assignment for Second City.  I guess my weekend was kind of all over the place!  How was yours?

  1. I have to admit, that I love these sleeves. Maybe because they are interesting and different than our usual sleeves!
    And since yellow is my favorite color lately--this skirt is singing to me!! It's glorious!

  5. Love the combo here of the really bright with something more subdued. I feel the same as you that I just don't feel like myself when I'm head to toe in super bright. I really like the sleeves on that top. It has a cute 70's kick back to it!

Go CUBS!

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!  …

Comedy and Tragedy

It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times.  I generally hate cliche quotes that can easily be slapped on memes or on the coffee mug of a basic b!tch, but I'm hard pressed to find a better phrase to describe my life currently.  In short: I've been having the most fun that I've ever had in the eight months since I moved to LA, but then the emergency breaks got slammed on my life when my mother fell gravely ill and passed away two weeks later on June 6th.  
I'm currently back in LA, after being gone for three weeks.  I'm looking forward to continuing my comedy journey, as I feel it will save me from myself at this time.  But while I'm functioning okay as I'm still in a great deal of shock and my current mode is auto pilot, certain hours of the day prove to me that I'm very jumbled up and confused about my mom's passing.  I suddenly don't know what I'm in for and I don't know what I'm doing.
Not knowing what I'm doing …
