Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah it was in the 80’s yesterday. The temps even dropped down into the 70’s during the evening hours and my boiling Arizona blood was a tad bit chilly. It was such a joyous occasion I got the chance to whip out another score from Brooklyn Industries; this amazing oversize houndstooth printed wool sweater. I can’t even stand how it amazingly matches these blue mirrored sunglasses I got earlier this year. Just kidding, I can stand it.
I really had you guys going there for a minute – huh? I really tricked you. Okay-okay if you are forcing me, I kind of LOVE matchy-matching.

When I was in grade school I was also a real creep about matching. I had this every other type rule. It would go like this for example; white Keds, pink socks, white jeans, pink top, white headband. Oh-my-god and if there was a belt in the mix, well that threw everything off. Luckily that isn’t the case these days, my OCD issues have moved on to bigger and better things. Like, the order in which one must clean a home. Let me just tell you, dusting is the last step okay. OKAY! 😉

Until next time.
Love, Amanda

P.S. Above knuckle rings for the win! FTW I say!

There is no doubt about it, I’m ready for fall. Who isn’t when all the stores are starting to line their racks with the cutest fall trends. Unfortunately for us Arizonians, we don’t get to sport these cozy looks for another few months.

I’m not gonna cry about it, not yet anyways. I decided to test run this lovely ruffled dress I just received from Brooklyn Industries. Which I am in love with btw. It’s soft ruffled top, yet edgy gold spiked button detail is the perfect contrast. We all know I love to mix feminine pieces with some edgy ones. It’s like how I add hot sauce to everything. I’m crazy like that. Anyways I knew this dress was a versatile one and I’m definitely taking it with me season to season.
