Beetle Mania.


I love 'em.

I think it has to do with their oddly alluring iridescence and primitive aesthetic

I think they're cool. 

This dress is actually made of beetle wings. It was worn by Ellen Tracy as Lady Macbeth in 1888.

So I bid you good day. 

Dress with beetles in mind. Decorate with beetles in mind. Accessorize with beetles in mind.



This outfit is the epitome of comfort and understated edge.

I adore the long-sleeve pocket t; it's so very simple. And I cannot get enough of my new cranberry colored Chaseash skirt; it's absolutely amazing.

My friend Ashley over at Local Honey is the genius behind Chaseash. Check her out. Her latest collection (of which my skirt was born) is a lesson in easy fabrics paired with chiffon flares. It's all extremely unique yet surprisingly wearable.

AND Ashley is sweet to boot. Being that this is the actual skirt that went down the runway during Local Honey's latest show, and I am in no way similar to a glamazon model, some minor adjustments to the garment were necessary. Ashley kindly obliged. Can't beat that with a stick, eh?

The Impossible Cool.

Good day.

I've recently become acquainted with The Impossible Cool, a website that posts a different black and white photo of an impossibly cool individual each day. I've gathered a few of some of America's favorite unfalteringly chic ladies for your viewing pleasure. 

Take notes, girls.











Now go your separate ways, and strive to attain what you've just seen.



Baja Chicken Pizza.

I developed this pizza after a game-changing experience at Pie in the Sky with the Baja Chicken Pizza.

pre-made crust
1/2 tbs butter
1/2 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1 1/2 tbs taco powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 pack shredded Cheddar cheese
1 can french fried onions
2 avacados, quartered
Chipotle ranch

Preheat oven to 425.

Saute chicken in butter and taco seasoning until cooked.

Cover crust with pizza sauce and sprinkle with garlic and onion powder.

Cover sauce with thin layer of cheese.

Place chicken chunks on cheese layer.

Cover chicken with a second layer of cheese.

Place avocados on pizza and sprinkle with french fried onions.

Drizzle pizza with chipotle ranch and place in oven. Bake for 30 minutes.

From the depths of my heart, Pie in the Sky, I thank you.



Cut Loose.

It's tasty.
It's dazzling.
My mind is completely engrossed by it.

Footloose is a cinematic delicacy.

I love the references to the 1984 version starring Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer.

And seriously.

Kenny Wormald's style deserves a post all its own, but for now this triage of stills will have to do. Have mercy, Kenny.

And what can I even say about Julianne Hough? She's a firecracker for sure. 

Since my move to Middle TN and possibly against my better judgment, I've been loving plaid and cowboy boots. Such a back roads aesthetic abounds in Footloose.

Just go see it, you guys. 

I can't say that you'll leave more intelligent, but you will exit with a little more jive in your gait



And whenever I'm in a situation where I'm wearing the same as 600 other people and doing the same thing as 600 other people, looking back, I always found ways to make myself different, whether it be having a red lining inside of my jacket, having red shoes, it hasn't changed.
