Outfit Post: Winter Is Over You

Weather is warming up here, but 40 something degrees still warrants a hat. I just purchased a new camera so expect many more outfit posts from me! This also motivates me to dress in more interesting ways because sometimes we all get in that wear-the-same-thing-every-day rut.

Dress- Vintage
Long Sweater- BCBG
Tights- Urban Outfitters
Boots- Steve Madden
Hat- Target
Watch- Wood Wood

I'm excited for warmer weather and photoshoots outdoors! I know the bedroom may not be the best location for an outfit shoot but I made it work.

New In Music: French Horn Rebellion x HAERTS, Lykke Li, Chromeo x Toro Y Moi x The Magician, Etc.

This French Horn Rebellion x HAERTS track is the perfect mix of dance and relax with the lovely female vocals of HAERTS. This is a track I'll be playing to get me out of the winter rut we are currently trapped in. It has been categorized as Next Jack Swing which is pretty spot on.

As a long-time fan of Lykke Li I have been awaiting a new release. The wait was worth it and it's true to her natural style. Tears at your heart strings.

Changing paces, this track by Chromeo featuring Toro Y Moi and remixed by The Magician features so many of my favorite artists all in one track. It crosses over genres yet still stays true to all of the artists general sound.

Aluna George has such a distinct voice and mixed with the right producers they bring out all the good in her. Being a huge fan of her Disclosure track and her most recent album (Body Music) I knew I had to give this a chance. I am also infatuated with Kaytranada as of late, this combo is perfect.

Another artist really growing on me is BANKS. The video for Brain accompanies the song to perfection. If you haven't given BANKS a shot yet, now is the moment.

Hope the weather is treating you nicely wherever you're located. We're still drowning in snow over here and praying for that summer sun to arrive soon! xox K

New In Fashion: Lazy Oaf Spring 2014

There's this un-repressible love for Japanese culture that has lingered through my life. Tokyo is a destination I dream of traveling to... and will within the next couple of years, it's a goal! Lazy Oaf has just released their Spring 2014 collection shot in this amazing robot cafe, I believe it's a club where you can eat dinner and watch a robot and dinosaur show... sounds insane and just perfect. Check out the video, and the soundtrack is Ryan Hemsworth (yay!).

Also here's one of my favorite artists and her new single which also happens to be shot in Tokyo and partially in the same cafe. Seeing a trend this season...

Inspiration: Blush Pink

Walking outside this morning was a little odd. It was around 42 degrees and yet I was still trudging through the mounds of snow in my blood red chunky heeled boots. I finally felt a bit of spring and it's inspiring me with my favorite color this season. Blush pink. Enjoy the round up of my favorite spring color this season.

Also: To my readers! I'm sorry for the lack of posts as of late, I'm working on some really exciting new projects... one of which will be resulting in a new blog with a close friend of mine. I will continue to update here until we have furthered our process! xoxo K

Here are some pieces and you can view the rest on his blog here Leonid Tishkov. There are so many photos from this project it was hard to choose my favorites. Take a look at this clever artist.
