a striped turtle

This would be a previous outfit. Snapping these laid out has become a rather annoying habit. The time lapse between instagram & the blog platform, also, has a large gap that could be a bit irritating. Mostly, I’m complaining to myself, about myself, so know I’m on your side. I’m putting my money on spring break’s excess outfit shoots to makeup for this semester’s slacking. Those blogger’s with outfit posts every single day, how do you do it? After that, it’s just the Dragon Tattoo trilogy on a Saturday night.

Outfit from the past but soon to be repeated.


suede buttons

Our Penny Lane (Red Border Collie) is prego, so get ready for that genius offspring. If you’re a local reader let me know if you’re interested. (The father is a Blue Merle Border Collie.)Inexplainable addictive additives in coconut water. Like, Ryan running to Sprouts at 10 PM to grab 2 more jugs, addictiveness.

Highlights: Remember the coat I got back in October? Suede, crop sleeves, fur collar, and $25… It’s the chunky suede buttons that top it off, though. Then you have the Anabela’s, known for their crippling effects. I’ve been trying to “break them in”;  just couldn’t bare the stares we exchanged while they sat on their throne. So far, it’s a painful ride, but nothing detrimental. Basically stay seated as often as possible. Baby steps.


waxed cape

A waxed sweater cape that is also fairly shear basically in-tells hair coverage & tweed booty shorts. You know, the classy kind, like CoCo. I had to go for the most obvious, typical move – add the matching sock-mary jane-combo. I’m keeping it repetitive, fedora weighing in, too. Seriously valuing that short amount of time I could bare knees, though. Nauseous. It’s back to bitter cold days here + that awesome wind known to create a hair munching shot time after time. Annoying complaints, but if I’m freezing my toes, at least let me do it for the sake of NYFW. Hate you all in the vicinity. No, really… Next year – sad face. Time to stalk style.com.


exploring height

Second time in these wedges. Should maybe enjoy this elusive height more often. They make me tower over everything & I love it. Makes sense, Rachel Bilson is a wee-one like me. As for my upper portion, I have found love in this silky button up. It adds to my sleepwear indulgence (admittedly been searching for even more bottoms & tops to explore this night in the day interlude) yet again. The major contrast going on obviously required a full button up and then I just had to add a necklaced bib. Always wanted to explore with that.


wilted palm trees

I’ve been in a weird skirt fixation lately. Thank goodness the weather saw favor in it, too. The recent warmness made me want to prance around in front of semi – living palm trees? Awesome upkeep Lubbock. This just makes me even more ecstatic to be in LA for spring break/22nd birthday. If you have tips, shoot them at me. First time in Cali is going to be surreal. Plus an additional frenzy found in these boots. The structure of the toe is sartorially genius and completely new to the bundle of black ankle boots in my closet. Clear justification for impulse purchases. Now I will finish reading style.com mag & practice illustrations. Seriously favorite form of “art” and if given the option, would display them all throughout my loft. If you haven’t seen the work at Langsterbatorium, prepare to be in awe.


missing shots

 Ash Bea Wedges + Nasty Gal Leopard Cardigan = school uniform. New Linea Pelle Vintage Belt. Not actually so neon-ish but equally as eye-catching.  Studded covers – check out Shop 12:2

A massive update of the shots that slipped away. You may have witnessed most of these via Instagram - @kaitlyntru


sunday afternoon dressing

Sundays are incredibly lazy. Black bean burgers & the couch, simple as it gets. Rules are – no makeup & pajama dressing. Sleep wear during the day – one of the greatest “trends” of recent moments. The search for more of these pajama style trousers is a heavy priority right now.

A pre-gaming peek. Possibly the first appearance of the Bowie cutoff tee, which is my most favorite – slept in every night – item. Plus it just generally makes you want to dance & act ridiculous, very similar to this:


flared legs

 Hadn’t posted a legit outfit in a while… Flared trousers to pick up the slack. Stared at these for months & finally found their fitting premier. Indoor loft shots & mostly to  reveal our new couch. In love. I have the greatest parents to ever live. This heap of a gift serves as the greatest of hosts to read Vogue Paris while also practicing with my French Tutor app. So productive while on breaks but finally have to get back to school. Me multitasking and reading finance right now paints the ugliest picture.
