Weekly Whistle: Rust + Rose Quartz + Velvet Floral

IMG_1404

For those of you who have been following my blog since the beginning (it will be four years tomorrow–CELEBRATE! *happy dance*), you know just how obsessed I am with funky blazers. From bright, graphic prints to velvet floral ones–I cannot turn down a blazer that has a spunky personality *wink* Oh, and to think…it all started with a turquoise blazer I stumbled upon at Urban Outfitters about five years ago! It was love at first sight…and then I quickly spun out of fashionable control *wink*

This blazer is still one of my favorites ever!

Now, for this week’s fabulous Weekly Whistle, I am playing with warm and pastel hues + a super-duper lovely velvet floral blazer. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s outfit of the week!

Weekly Whistle: Funky Fine Pair of (Vintage) Levi’s Jeans

IMG_1318

 Lately, I have been listening to A LOT of 80s music–Genesis, ZZ Top, Bryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Joan Jett and the list goes on and on. So, naturally, I have been in like a totally rad, neon pink, acid wash and Miami Vice mood *said in my best Valley Girl voice*

When the winter storm hit last week and dumped about 9 inches of snow, my photographer and I took the opportunity to take some awesome outfit photos for the blog. As I was pulling items for the photoshoot, I stumbled upon a pair of funky fine (vintage) Levi’s *cue ZZ Top’s Cheap Sunglasses* that I had TOTALLY forgotten about.

In my 80s state of mind, I embraced the crazy, yellow acid-wash denim and decided to create a wearable wildcard outfit for this week’s Weekly Whistle. In the word’s of my photographer, “Wow…well, Abby–it sure it bright.” *wink*

Now, without further ado, get your 80s groove thang on and check out this week’s Weekly Whistle + outfit details! Also, be sure to pay special, close attention to the fabulous handmade bracelets!

Weekly Whistle: Modern-Day Little House on the Prairie

IMG_0136

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

One of my FAVORITE book series when I was little was Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder. My second grade teacher used to read the books to us, when we were really good in class that day *wink*, and as I got older, my grandparents introduced me to the television show. When I tried on this snazzy dress made from recycled materials at Urban Outfitters, it felt like something you would see on a modern remake of Little House on the Prairie!

Laura from the Little House on the Prairie television series. See what I was talking about with the tank dress! Hmm…with the right under shirt, I could go as a modern-day Laura Ingalls for Halloween*wink*

Now, while I go peruse the internet for episodes of Little House on the Prairie, y’all check out the outfit photos + details for this week’s wonderfully nostalgic Weekly Whistle *wink*
