Think Pink

8.28.2012


Racerback Maxi (worn as skirt) c/o Intimint
TJ Maxx Lace Crop Top (last seen here), 
Vintage giraffe-print belt (last seen here), 
Balenciaga Dark Havana shades, 
Steve Madden sandals
Vintage crossbody bag.

As soon as I saw Lauren wearing this new neon pink maxi with my all time fave white, cross-body drawstring bag, I knew immediately where I wanted to document this look -- at a nearby, now defunct church with bright blue metal grates covering the entrance. There's something so deliciously 80s about this color combo that I couldn't resist.

Outfit documentation complete, Lauren took me to a brand new spot called St. Mazie that actually opened up just a short skip away from my old apartment. As soon as I walked inside I fell in love. With low, mint green tin ceilings, old-school metal fans, boat lights accenting the walls and French wicker tables from the 20s, I had found my soul-style manifest. Seriously, I could live in this place. And the best part is the maze of a hallway that leads to a secret garden-esque backyard. Sadly, Lauren and I were forced back inside as dusk was falling and we are both popular dinner items for mosquitoes, but I look forward to making a return trip there when cooler temps are back in season.

xx, M

  13. Just love this look! The maxi would have been cool on it's own but it looks fantastic with the lace overlay and the belt. Glad you found a new spot! I love the french feel. Maybe I'll check it out when I'm in the city next week!
