Look of the Day: Icon Inspired

I spent my Friday cleaning out my closet for spring. the weather was so nice today I decided it was time to officially pack up my boots. I don't pack them all but it definitely feels too late in the season to wear boots like my Suede Ash Olivia's, I am embracing Spring and sucking it up even if my feet get cold. I pack up my strictly seasonal clothes because it frees up closet space and it forces me to reevaluate clothes when I unpack them in the fall.

While I was cleaning, I felt my outfit very Audry Hepburn inspired (how presumptuous of me), while pairing a striped shirt and head wrap. Audrey Hepburn images have been on my mind since I decided on the dress I am wearing the the wedding tomorrow. The dress I decided on reminds me of one of dress she wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's. So naturally I had to go back through my pictures, to look at all those pictures I took of my TV back in February, when I was watching Breakfast at Tiffany's nightly.

The Icon.
Me, wishing I just had an ounce of her chicness and grace.
"Alright, alright, look - I don't have grace, I don't want grace....I don't even say grace, O.K.?"
Moon River....rocking the head wrap.
And me, in my messy room, organizing!
It is also possible that this Picture of Kurt Cobain, that I posted earlier this week, was my inspiration to break out my Rodarte for Target top.
I resemble him a bit more, don't I?
And the reason I was looking for Audrey Hepburn pictures, these dresses remind of the dress I am wearing tomorrow. Obviously it is not white and it is shorter.
I hope your Friday was more exciting then mine =)


  1. Lovee when she is singing on the window. I'm seriously afraid to start cleaning out my closet - I might get lost in there.
