This past weekend we moved to Los Angeles. Packed up my little car and the dog, and drove out West. I’ve been wanting to come to the West Coast for a few years now, and am feeling at peace that we are finally here, safe and sound. I’ve complied a list of items that we packed, making the trip easy and fun. Needless to say the “auto bingo” cards were a great hit, providing ongoing laughs and friendly rivalry. A good book for your break from driving, a scarf that can be tied on the head or neck (or in my case, rolled up in the window for some shade), and sunglasses are a must-have.  Don’t forget to pack tons of water and of course some chocolate. Check out some more road trip fun here.  ***Thanks to my girl Sally for the rad picture edit ❤

Dusty rose, aptly named, beginning with the adjective “dusty” implying fade, dirt, weathering, vintage. A version of pink, airing on the side of blush, and a bit more subdued than it’s shiner counterpart, rosegold. The dusty rose color scheme encompasses rose quartz in its naturally occuring crystal form, an intrinsically feminine hue, that I am fully embracing for festival season. Its soft enough to treat as a neutral, but would add a lovely pop of color to any outfit.

Get studded. A set of symbolic studs to mix and match to suit your fancy. I’ve never been much of a dangly earring girl, preferring simple wear-everyday ear candy.  These all range in price from $2.99 to $885-for the awesome gold and diamond snake studs from eco-conscious designer Julia Failey. A DIY from a while back to organize them all here.

Spring Looks

Are you ready for Spring? A time of cleansing, renewal…sandals. Bring it on. I’ve been especially drawn to a few choice warmer-weather looks for the season. Top of the list include bottoms like boyfriend denim with heels (mules, namely), and interesting pants (palazzo, wide leg, bell bottom-all with zipper details). Faded blacks on blacks and white on white look awesome and highlight any accessory you’ve been wanting to show off (new handbag, or sick belt). Intentionally stacked arm parties (not just throwing on every bracelet you own) create wrist art, and The 2 Bandits have got you covered on this front.
