On a rainy day last week I was still determined to take outfit photos so we decided to experiment and take photos under the covered bridge at the entrance to the park we take our walks at. Christian also wanted to try taking (and editing) the photos with his iPhone instead of his usual camera (Panasonic GH5s with a Canon lens.)

Cardigan: Ami dans la Rue (Shopbop), Striped Cashmere Sweater: Alice + Olivia (Roundabout), Jeans: Mother (Marshalls), Rain Boots: dav 'Moto Gunmetal' (and here), Hat: bought in London

Another almost complete recreation for this throwback. The tee and heels have left my closet so I substituted my new light pink Everlane tee for the brighter (not really me) pink tee and some brown Prada sandals. Originally I was going to wear my black Dolce & Gabanna mary janes to recreate the look closer but, since I actually have brown heels now, I decided to match the pants.

Tee: Everlane, Sweater: Ami Dans La Rue (Shopbop), Jeans: Jolt (Marshalls), Belt: from Jason Wu for Target dress, Caged Sandals: Prada (The RealReal), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Ozzie Square Baby Aiden' (Shopbop)

It's peep toe bootie timeeee!!!! I can't believe I've had these boots for just about 6 years. I still love them just as much as when I begged my mom to help me pay for them as part of my birthday gift that year.  I'm dreading the day they become too tight or too worn out to wear anymore, but hopefully that won't be any time soon!

Snake Tee: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Marshalls), Sweater: Ami Dans La Rue (Shopbop), Jeans: Free People (Gilt Groupe), Booties: Alexander Wang 'Freja' (The Outnet), Watch: Skagen (Rue La La)

I've always enjoyed this color combo. Green and purple make such a great pair but I don't see them put together that often. Forgive the wrinkles on the sweater, didn't have time to iron it, haha! It's finally staying light enough for me to take outfit pictures when I go to my parents for dinner. So much better than having to do multiple outfits over the weekends.

Top: Michael Kors (Lord & Taylor), Sweater: Ami Dans La Rue (Shopbop), Skirt: Old Navy, Booties: No.704b. (DSW), Necklace: BubuRuby (etsy)

This outfit is over 4 years old...insanity!  Unfortunately I don't have the same shoes anymore, and I wasn't going to wear the blue tights, but I figured I may as well get as close to the original outfit as I could! So the only change I made was the heels.  This wasn't the best of my outfits but for some reason I still like it - minus the blue tights.

Dress: Marc by Marc Jacobs (eBay), Sweater: Ami Dans La Rue (Shopbop), Heels: Simply Vera Wang c/o Kohl's, Belt: Kenneth Cole Reaction (Marshalls), Scarf: Jason Wu for Target

It was a cold one last week, folks! I definitely needed these three layers last week and I wore leggings under my jeans too. All the pieces in this outfit are the exact ones I wore almost 3 years ago. It feels like just yesterday that I scored this amazing oversized blazer for $10. Gotta love moving sales!

Blazer: Vintage PBM Women's (Coco's), Sweater: Ami dans la Rue (Shopbop), Tee: DIY (inspired by Burberry Prorsum), Jeans: Free People (Gilt Groupe), Booties: no.704b. (DSW)

This is what I wore on our last day in Santorini. We visited the Red Beach (didn't go to the actual beach) and Akrotiri, the buried city. It was amazing to see how preserved this city was, even after a volcano. Who knows what else they will find during their excavations. Are you liking my little throwback to the 90s with my sweater wrapped around my waist? What can I say, it's easier than carrying it around, and I think it looks pretty cute! Totally fitting the role of tourist, complete with cameras (video and digital)

Tee: Everlane, Cardigan: Ami Dans La Rue (Shopbop), Jeans: Free People, Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Athena' (Gilt), Rings: old, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lumo 'Violet, Lumo 'Rope', Sunglasses: Ray-Ban 'Erika' (Ditto), Bag c/o Orox Leather

Our second day in London a group of us went to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter. They have made a few changes since I was last there for the Grand Opening in 2012 so it was really fun to visit again, especially with people who had never been before.  If you are ever visiting London and are a movie fan (doesn't even have to be Harry Potter) I highly recommend it.

*Orox sent the piece featured in this post, but all opinions are my own.*

Today I'm featuring a beautiful piece from Orox Leather Co., based in Portland, Oregon. Orox sells a full line of American made bags, belts and small leather goods, crafted by hand in their Portland workshop. They use only the highest quality, American­ sourced leather and other sustainable materials. Orox is a proud leader in sustainable consumerism, standing by their low­ impact production process and quality US made products that will last a lifetime.

We love handcrafting exceptional leather goods that last just about forever. Perhaps the only thing that makes us happier is seeing our products well used, cherished, and passed on to the next generation. As a fourth generation family business, we’re in it for the long haul. We’re very excited about 2015: creating new products, discovering new materials, and sharing our vision and craft with more people around the world.
Orox kindly sent me their Macbook sleeve in tan to style for the blog! I chose it because it can do double duty as a clutch, which is how I will use it most of the time! You can tell the piece is skillfully handmade, the quality is excellent. I can just picture this a few years from now, beautifully worn in and weathered from lots of love.

The leather was giving me a Ralph Lauren-esque feeling, so I decided to style it with a Lauren Ralph Lauren dress. Unfortunately it was REALLY cold when Lydia and I met up to take these pictures so I improvised and turned the dress into a top and wore it with jeans.

Make sure to come back next week when I'll be featuring another bag from Orox!
