The Burning Man Project

Which, by the way, I had no idea what that was.  Maybe because I don't do acid...but apparently I dressed the part today as the first thing my colleague said to me was, "What time does your drum circle start?"  But to be fair - I've been on the hunt for maxi skirts for awhile...and since I haven't found one, I transformed this old maxi dress into a skirt MAGICALLY.  And by magically, I mean I put a sweater over it.
martin + osa top, style xpress maxi dress, f21 belt, various bangles
I'm off to Chicago the rest of this week, I'm totes excites...except it's like 20-degrees.  Luckily one of my most practical purchases (a North Face down jacket) has now quickly become one of my favorite purchases.  I'll definitely be posting throughout my stay in Chicago, though hopefully it won't be of the same thing (e.g. my North Face down jacket).

You guys, you should have seen how big my KOOL AID SMILE was when Francesca's Collections, one of my most favorite stores, featured me on their newsletter!  Am so excited & honored to see my mug on it!  Check out the full newsletter here or sign up yourself for updates!


  1. you look fantastic! you also look comfortable. maxi dresses/skirts are where it's at--though i don't own/wear any because i think i'm too short :P

  2. Kinda love the idea of stacking watches... even though my mom just told me that can mess them up. Haha, who knows.

  3. Gotta love snarky coworkers :P I don't know if it's the case here, but for me it's always the most unfashionable people who are the most likely to comment on others' style. Like, what's up with that?! People who live in sweats should not throw stones imo haha

  14. LOL! It's a lovely combo and I especially adore that skirt. Hipster music festival commentary be darned! I've never been to Burning Man but one stop at Coachella a few years ago was more than enough for me.

  15. Great doesnt at all seems that you are wearung a maxy not a skirt.And you have made a good combination with the grey sweater.

  16. Thanks for always including such beautiful samples by such talented and creative people. Wonderful!
