Street Style Saturday – The Devil Loves Details

Misti and I have a love for good personal style. Though each person is unique in their approach, you know you’re witnessing something special when you see it. The coordination of colors, the fit, the careful attention to details…it all equates to a person who knows who they are.

The shredded jeans and the cropped tank are on trend, yes, but the details are what makes it enviable. Layering on the long vest, cuffing the jeans and then adding some heart shaped glasses change the dynamics of the ensemble.
We decided to go to a popular and accessible website, Forever 21, to see if we can closely replicate the look for you.

The first look totaled at $72.70. Great mix and match pieces but together they are dynamic.

The Jeans:

Mid Rise- Destroyed Straight Leg Ankle Jeans $29.90

The Cropped Tank Top

Sweater Knit Cami $14.90

The  Vest

Longline Pointelle Knit Vest $27.90

The graphic pattern on the second look had me completely fascinated. Her combination of the micro checkered crop top and striped pants has a classic but modern feel. I was totally disappointed that I couldn’t find the right patterns to match this look but we felt the shapes we’re pretty close and the light blue striped shirt added the patterned detail that made this look so fresh. For $45.70, not only do you get the top and the capris, but you get some great aviators….and who doesn’t like a good pair of aviators?

Wanderlust Wednesday-Not all those who wander are lost

Everyone decides they want to leave their hometown one day and do bigger and better things. For me, I have had many hometowns. I was born in California and remember chasing chickens on my grandmother’s farm and ducking under tables when the earth shook. I also have memories of my first snowball fight in Portland, Oregon. I lost my neighborhood in a tornado in Clever, Missouri and lived in a house without power for a month during the 2004 hurricanes in Central Florida. My parents always had the itch to take off and start over somewhere new, where I was always forced to be the shy new kid in school. I had fantasies of being someone different in each new town, but always froze when stepping foot in a new school when I was walked into my classroom to interrupted the lesson and be introduced to all the quiet eyes peering into my soul.

I can safely say that I have worked or lived in Cocoa Village for over a decade now, which is something I never thought I would do: settle down somewhere. I always found myself wondering where my home is. What I have learned is that everywhere you go is a small town but with different people and new scenery. Cocoa Village is my home. I may wander off here and there in search of mountains and cute accents but I will always drift back. I have fallen in love with my morning routine of grabbing an iced caramel macchiato at Ossorio’s and walking to work to start my day. I love the historical detail in the buildings and the breeze from the river. So, yeah, I can finally say I found my home.
