Taking a motorcycle ride has been on my bucket list for years, but the right opportunity hasn't quite presented itself. A large portion of my wardrobe might imply something on the contrary, but my collection of biker boots and jackets is purely for badass inspiration. I expect that someday the time will be right to hop on a bike, but in the meantime I figure there's nothing wrong with planning the perfect outfit for when it does. Sturgis, anyone?


American Girl

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. Not only because of the great past times it facilitates (nothing says summer like drinking American beer out of a can and watching some fireworks from the back of a pickup truck), but  I especially love to have a bit of fun with the fashion each year. There isn't a more perfect day to get inspired by our homeland and do a little over-the-top Americana: cutoff shorts, stars, stripes, eagles, and some glitter - all necessary components. Enjoy a nice mid-week break and don't be afraid to rock your patriotic side.

Lately I've been consistently reaching for some of the same choice style elements: neon pink (as witnessed in yesterday's post), black leather (nothing new here), and silk scarves - specifically this new Alexander McQueen beauty which was a Christmas gift from my husband. It's been glued to my body ever since - going through airport security, walking the dog, groggily making my way to Starbucks in the morning, or all dressed up for a night out. Don't expect it to subside anytime soon. You may not be able to see its signature skulls in these pics, but trust me - they're subtly placed within the croc and tweed, and they keep me oh so safe.
