AJ Wears :: Stripes on Stripes

It's been unusually cold for May. We broke a low record this weekend and I actually had NO IDEA how to even dress myself. Last year I was in NYC and fully expected cooler weather. This year, my brain can't function and I still have new wedges I haven't worn yet. I ended up going with a tried-and-true favorite of legging pants, striped tee, and fun scarf. I figured some bright flowers on the scarf and fun shoes would make things feel springy (even if the weather wasn't feeling that way).

 Look at Little Rock showing off. Even when it's cold, it's still trying to be gorgeous. We spent the weekend at Made By Few, a conference for tech/design/developer types that was really inspiring. I spent my Saturday at the Clinton Library listening to some amazing people (like that guy who designed the FarCry 3 posters and that guy who founded Threadless). What it reminded me was - I have an amazing job where I have the flexibility to pay the bills and the time to focus on what I love...this blog. I get to be an art director, photographer, graphic designer, and content creator in my free time and I LOVE it. This blog is my passion project, and I'm glad I get to share it with you. Work when others are resting.

Video :: All about wedge sneakers

This video isn't a "helpful" video, per say, it's more a random mess of me talking about my wedge sneakers. And I'm okay with that.


If you want some ugly wedge sneakers of your own, I've taken the time to curate a collection of some of my favorites. The good news is, I saw a pair that was $1000 and I didn't include those, because that's crazy pants!

AJ Wears :: Floral Shoes

I don't have a cute story for today's outfit except these shoes came in the mail and I put them on immediately and wore them around my house with my pajamas. Once I got some work done, I put together the rest of the outfit and hit the mall and Ulta.

It's like...I KNOW they're totally ridiculous. They're bright and flowery and a weird half wedge, half heel shape. But I thought they were fun and would be pretty for summer.

I've also been the weird girl taking pictures on a tripod out of her car lately. I usually just wait until BB gets home from work, but if I'm out and about anyway, I've been looking for back alleys and secluded spots to snap a few pics just to keep things interesting.

And now, here's a dramatic picture that was actually just an outtake, HIGH FASHION YOU GUYS. Check out that sweet remote (with antenna!) in my hands. DIY blogging at it's finest.
