Inspiration // Scarlett Johansson for VOGUE

This is one of my favorite Vogue shoots of all time. It embodies 40's inspired glamour and class. I think the photos are gorgeous and most importantly the styling is impeccably vintage and just wonderfully timeless. I am totally lusting after these garments, and have been for awhile, considering this shoot is from a few years ago!

Scarlett looks just amazing in all the photos and I can't get enough of the stills from the shoot. She has the perfect body type, and honestly her figure is definitely one to envy! She looks straight out of Marilyn Monroe or Bettie Page's time.

Though I don't subscribe to Vogue anymore, I still remember getting this issue in the mail and hanging the photos all over my walls. I am forever in love with 40s/50s inspired cuts and silhouettes. There's something so flattering and feminine about the styles that I can't get enough of. It's so glamorous and lovely!

Anyways, I hope this gives you some classy summer inspiration!



I picked up these total TOMS knock-offs today at Target. I wanted a summery comfy shoe, particularly to wear to Disneyland as an alternative to my converse. And these are perfect, they're so girly and casual and surprsingly comfy. And I oddly fit best in a size 9? I think they run a bit small. But altogether they are a cute shoe for the summer months and hopefully they will be comfortable and durable for the many hours I will be spending traipsing around Disneyland.

And even better, they were only around $15, which is a great price cut for the price TOMS usually go for. But at the same time I feel oddly guilty because though TOMS are expensive, they DO use the profits to help children in poverty stricken regions. I feel like I cheated them a bit! :/

But nonetheless, these cuties will be made at home in my shoe collection.

absence makes the heart grow fonder...

I am seriously hardcore enjoying this lazy summer life I've got going. Though some days have become a haze of boredom and lounging around the house, I'm definitely not complaining.
I'm just counting down until I leave for the happiest place on earth in roughly a month! I have put together some outfits in anticipation so check 'em!

Below you will find some photos I've taken with my gorgeous Canon DSLR.
