Lace Up Top at Black Tap

The first glimpse of some warmth you have to break out some spring clothes, right? Even if you have to throw on a winter coat on top, it's worth it to get out of the sweater and layers monotony. This Madewell top is super wrinkle-prone, but they nailed toeing the line between a sexy lace shirt and a laid-back peasant shape. 

It's also nice to break out my Vans again. Not only does all the blue and pink lift up my mood a bit, but I'm also in such a Star Wars mood with the celebration, teaser trailer, and May 4th coming up. 

I took this good mood to Black Tap to enjoy a seriously good burger. I didn't get a milkshake this time around, but it was nice to sing along to the loud hip hop music and chow down (if you're willing to wait in the line.)  

Dressed in: Asos coat (similar), Madewell blouse (similar 1,2), Gap jeans, Star Wars Vans and a Modcloth bag

Popsugar Reading Challenge 2017: Q1

I decided to take on a reading challenge for the first time this year.  I chose the POPSUGAR reading challenge because it had really interesting prompts that I think would change up my usual reading habits. I want to try and read more books in a variety of genres (instead of just memoirs and adult lit) and more books written by women. 

To combat the freak out over time moving so fast (a quarter of the year has already past!) I figured I'd reflect a bit on what I've read so far:

A great memoir for anyone interested in fashion, vintage life, and the relationships between mothers and daughters

A book that's been on your TBR for way too long: The Flamethrowers by Rachel Kushner 
This was kind of a disappointment. I found all the characters and the plot rather boring. 

This is for anyone who loved Shel Silverstein as a kid and has a good sense of humor. 

A book with a red spine: The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher 
My first dip into Carrie Fisher's books and it was a great introspective look into her thoughts and hilarious at times. 

A book by an author from a country you've never visited: The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz
Continuations with a new author are always a little weird, but this was pretty good. I'd stick to the originals though. 

Up Next: 
A book with a title that's a character's name: Where'd You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple

Any recommendations?

Escaping The Cold

Getting a little tired of the cold weather, but it's nothing a delicious brunch at La Esquina can't distract me from.
