Concrete Catwalk // Beachy Blues

IMG_2194Last weekend, I learned that stormy Saturday weddings on the beach call for a collective effort from the guests to brighten up the day.  Luckily I had this little number on hand, and that's EXACTLY what I aimed to do with my outfit on our visit to the shore last weekend...Mr. Pepper married two of our dearest friends (such a fun part of his secret life as an ordained minister!) and we couldn't believe that the ceremony missed getting rained on by mere minutes - Look at those stormy skies! (And my crazy wind-blown hair!)Speaking of crazy: I'm currently OBSESSED with wearing mismatched earrings (used to do this all the time with my little charm earrings in high school), and now that people are selling gems like these, I can make it an effortless choice for nearly any occasion.  Have you tried this accessory trend yet?  Do I look ridiculous? ;)  I'm always a little surprised that I don't get more "YOUR EARRINGS DON'T MATCH" remarks from people that I see in person!Ps. - I may not have needed my favorite shades at the beach, but I recently wrote about using each moment to add a "lens" to your ever-growing collection of perspectives... What are your thoughts on using every twinkle in time to broaden our view?IMG_2248Top to Bottom // Bauble Bar mismatched earrings (sold out - try these!) & quartz hinged cuff, vintage rings, Issa zebra-print dress, Brahmin 'Gemma' bag*, Twill moto jacket*, Nina 'Kalinda' mules* // * Notes a gifted item.IMG_2189IMG_2174IMG_2217IMG_2265IMG_2272IMG_2257IMG_2279IMG_2205IMG_2282IMG_2193IMG_2281
