Fell in love with this jacket right away. I'm a total sucker for anything with a bird on it. But I have to say that Zara's website continues to dazzle me this season (bird or not) and I just can't stop placing orders!
Also, I was very much inspired by the April 2013 NYLON Magazine, as I decided to do the whole veil/baseball cap look. Love it! Too warm for a beanie, so I might as well incorporate the veil in another manner.

It's taken me a minute, but I am finally getting to my Eastern Europe photos. Here are a few from Budapest, which was my favorite of all the cities we visited this trip.
We stayed at the Hotel Gellert. I couldn't have been happier with this hotel, as it was like staying in The Overlook Hotel in The Shining. It was dated, but our room was absolutely charming. It was a two-story suite with a balcony and giant chandelier. The hotel's hallways were long and carpeted... and I just knew that at any moment, young twins would appear at the end of it. Never happened, but I loved the hotel just the same. I strongly recommend it to anybody who is planning a trip to Budapest.
Nothing new from homme this time, but you can click and revisit the past: SEE/homme
I don't have a ton to say for this post, but...who doesn't need a strawberry headband?! I purchased this cutie at a local flea market this past weekend. They didn't just stop at strawberries either...they had oranges, apples and even a little nesting bird. Fruit makes for such an exquisite accessory; in fact, just holding a granny smith apple with a hot pink dress doesn't seem like such a bad idea. Never underestimate the power of a hot prop.
Check out Jerrmaner's new boots...he's been waiting a long time for these: SEE/homme
Wearing a cuff that Jerrmaner bought me for my birthday. I have to admit...when I first took this piece out of the bag, I was like "WTF?!" And not in a good way. He assured me that I could return the rejected cuff, but after time, I kind of opened up to the idea of having one ear chained to the other. Yes...that's right...one ear cuff attaches to the other with several chains running under your chin. I know...it's quite the contraption, but definitely something Jerrmaner would pick out.
Wearing a necklace that my sister made out of vintage glasses. She makes a lot of wonderful things...from vintage earring bracelets to glow-in-the-dark terrariums. My mom also makes jewelry out of vintage goodies and it is so fun being around when they create something new. I have an entire jewelry collection made up of their amazing creations. You will be seeing many more pieces soon.
Sometimes the best things are right under your nose.
