 cardi: Belk / tank, leggings skirt: Forever 21 / wedges: c/o Blowfish Shoes / lipstick (color: moxie) c/o Radiant Cosmetics / necklace: c/o Maya Brenner 

i literally ran out the door these morning and literally threw these clothes on to make it to church on time. couldn't find my black tights so i literally settled with leggings. and every time when i wear leggings with boots that show off my ankles, i literally think of a comment i got from somebody way back when - about ankle skin. (things like that doesn't leave one's memory so quickly.) also my stick on nail-polish literally took longer to put on last night than the box said it would take. and last but not least, i literally spent way too much time on tumblr the other night looking up Andrew Garfield gifs. literally.

much love.
{happy monday, friend.}

p.s. see my necklace in the above outfit? this is the Pablove heart necklace from my friends at Maya Brenner - and it hasn't come off of my neck for 3 days! not only am i love with this sterling silver heart (you know me and my love for hearts anything!) but i am in love with the fact that all proceeds from this necklace goes to the Pablove Foundation to continue to help the fight against cancer! read more about Pablove Foundation here and check out Maya Brenner's many gorgeous jewelry pieces here


  1. do you watch parks and recreation? the guy says literally all the time and when I was reading your post I kept picturing him saying it. :)

  4. hi ilene!

    this is a really nice outfit. so chic. i love the skirt so much!

    i don't get the "literally" reference, but judging from the comments above, it is to parks and rec, a show that i actually hate.

    does this mean are friendship is over?

    hope you had a fabulous weekend, dear. talk soon,
