daring to cross.


United Colors of Benetton x Sisley satchel (c|o SAC Addict) | F21 lace pocket tee | Asos bustier | H&M micro skirt | F21 leopard cross necklace | F21 sunglasses | Jeffrey Campbell Mariel suede wedges

My fascination with all things leopard continues. I hope you don't mind the replay of black lace, feline print, and neutral colors. But sometimes that's what a girl is in the mood for, right? Next outfit will be varied, I promise. Don't you worry, pretty heads.

Right now, they are renovating the downtown area to bring it back to its former luster. These construction zones are tall-tale signs of auspicious revitalization. Frankly, it's pretty exciting to see more local eateries, outdoor shopping, art galleries, and media venues arising in our city. Adding more diverse places to go will give the place its own signature stamp. And with this heat overkill (there has only been one day in the entirety of July that was less than triple digits), it will be refreshing to stroll around and cool off in makeshift locations. Hope the rest of your week will be much more arctic than mine!

I just stumbled upon your blog and must say that I am completely in love! This outfit is adorable, and the photography is absolutely stunning as well. My favorite part in the lace top - very delicate, but the color adds a bit of edge to it.

According to Annika said...

I hope you realize how insanely gorgeous you are, Jamie. That lace top is sensational, and I love the location in the construction site!

Here in NYC it's almost triple digits and that's hot enough for me to stay inside way more than I wish to... I honestly never thought I'd say this, but I do miss Sweden a little bit.

Tons of love,
Annika
