Oh you know... Just window shopping and drooling over gorgeous wedges. Click on the mini icons for details. It's taking a lot of willpower to not splurge on some of these.

Happy Friday! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. My sister is in town so there will most likely be good food, long talks, red wine, gorgeous hikes, and new yoga poses to be enjoyed these next few days. :)

Buffalo Exchange

On a recent trip to Buffalo Exchange , I made a purchase that I'm still really pleased with. I'll start by saying that I'm a purse fanatic and the perfect little black leather bag is something I've been in search of for a while. I couldn't be happier with this find because this bag is awesome in many ways.
  1. Size: big enough to hold all my necessities, but not too big so I overload it with stuff and it becomes ridiculously heavy (which I've been known to do)
  2. Strap: its long so its just right for the cross-body look which I love because its casual and comfortable yet chic
  3. Color: can't go wrong with black
  4. Material: soft leather. amazing
  5. Hardware: it's gold which I think looks really classy with black leather and it matches my jewelry since I wear primarily gold lately
  6. Quality: Its a really well made Zara bag and in great condition even though its obviously 'vintage' (I have no idea why someone would part with this purse!)
  7. Cost: I paid $30 for this bag which could have easily sold for $200 originally!!! I still can't get over that price for such a nice leather item
So as you can see, I'm so happy with my little vintage treasure and although the fine folks at Buffalo Exchange opted not to buy anything from the 2 huge bags of clothes I brought in (jerks), it was well worth the trip for this find.

Summer (Or Anytime) Jams

I had an urge to compile a summer playlist, but then as I got to itemizing, I realized that these might not be what you'd expect for your typical summer 'jams.' Some are old, and some are new but I figured since summer is right around the corner and these are artists and songs that I'm currently loving, it's my own mix of current favs.
  • Cold War Kids- "Louder than Ever"
  • Slightly Stoopid- "Above the Clouds"
  • Local Natives- "Airplanes"
  • Foster the People- "Pumped up Kicks"
  • Lykke Li- "Get Some"
  • 311- "Ill Be Here Awhile"
  • Ray LaMontagne- "You Are the Best Thing"
  • Florence + the Machine- "Hospital Beds"
    • Seeing her at the Greek on Monday!!! So excited
  • Bon Iver- "Skinny Love"
  • Rolling Stones-"Gimme Shelter"
  • Miike Snow- "Black & Blue"
  • Radiohead- "Lotus Flower"
  • Neil Young- "Heart of Gold"
  • Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina- "Stereo Love"
    • The first time I heard this song was last summer in Europe, so naturally it just hits me with a wave of blissful nostalgia every time
  • Kaskade-"4 AM"
  • Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros- "Home"
  • The xx- "Crystalised"
I could easily keep going, but I think I'll stop there and perhaps continue with playlists as a reoccurring post now and then.

*Quick Note- I just want to apologize for being a little less frequent with my posts lately. I have been apartment shopping and ad surfing with most of my free time lately, but will hopefully be settled into a new place July 1st. More details to come as they unfold! :)
