STILL FALLING INTO SUMMER

I went on a photoshoot/mini date with my boyfriend at The Blvd. and it was so random and fun. We were running a little late but thank god for golden hour. It's always the best time to actually take photos. While we were out, we discovered some hidden gems like an Italian custard shop and of a little taco shop. Yes, we totally had dessert first and then pork tacos (with cilantro, onions, and hot sauce. It totally deserved it's own mention). It was so freakin' good! Unfortunately our date was cut short because I had to babysit my baby sister. It was still a fun day and a memory to keep. ♡

I'm ready for Fall but I guess California isn't. I mean, today was 91 degrees (F)! Totally ridiculous! To survive this bizarre weather, I went straight to my Night Watch Cutout Booties I received from Calico! I'll have a post dedicated to them soon! I just couldn't wait to style them. I literally got them in the mail today, lol. Since it felt like summer, I thought I should go ahead and wear this hawaiian top I recently picked up from a thrift store. The color is so amazing, perfect for my red trend that's happening right now. ♡

OFFICIAL PYLO BABE

I'm trying so hard not to talk about how effin' tired I am right now, but it is so hard because that's the way I feel. Happy 1st day of October! Are you guys ready for the sweater weather, eating pounds of candy until you're in a candy coma, and of course dressing up for Halloween? My answer, hell yes. The the moment I started wearing jeans again is the moment I want the cold breeze to start and the simmering sun to calm down and take a break until next year. You guys have any thoughts on your costumes yet? I think I'm leaning towards Harley Quinn. ♡

YAAAAASSSSSS. I finally get to wear my PYLO Gypsy Denim Bellbottoms that I've been drooling over for ages! I won these a while back from Jill of Little Black Boots competition (check out her blog for awesome mod/boho looks & inspiration). The fit of these jeans are beyond amazing and actually fit true to size, well besides the length. The length of the jeans were super long for me so I actually had to alter them to my height (5'2) so they wouldn't drag on the floor. I love that they're super high-waisted and what better way to style high-waisted jeans than a classic b&w striped crop top from Image?  Also, to give myself a little more height, I wore my Schoolz Sandals since they're mini platforms. This girl is currently 3 inches closer to heaven. ♡

RED, BLACK, & METALLICS

Happy friday everyone! I'm spending my day watching Saturday Night Live and possibly going to the thrift store since I got a 40% off coupon! Yes, this is the highlight of my day, lol. Well also I have to work on a group project for my Intro to Fashion class. I have to create a line of clothing for all the consumer groups. Luckily, I got Generation X, which shouldn't be difficult. Even though I want to sleep & eat.

Plaid Overalls: Melrose Shop
White top: J. Crew

I really, really like this outfit! This look was inspired by fashion blogger Alyssa from Ordinary People's NYFW look. Definitely check her blog out if you enjoy minimalistic looks and great photos for inspiration. To create a look similar I wore MeUndies Rawk Tank, a pair of nylons that I haven't worn in FOREVER, Schoolz Sandals, bright red overalls I bought in Melrose, J. Crew top tied around my waist, and of course layers necklace.

 I love how red & black is becoming trendy this season. The pop of color to a minimal/simple outfit is really refreshing. Of course you have to add a hint of metallic elements to the look, but that's just my personal preference. ♡

HARDCORE BASICS

I'm back in my room. Womp. It was actually pretty warm today for the 2nd day of Autumn. Today I had my principles of sewing class and holy crap. I don't think I've ever been this stressed out where I actually get headaches. We were using the serger machine to practice our overlapping stitch and it seriously scared the crap out of me. We also started practicing hemming pieces which I'm totally excited about because I can finally alter my PYLO Gypsy Denim Bellbottoms that I've been dying to wear! The only thing stopping me is my 5'2 height and tiny, tiny feet. I actually might do it tonight to see how it works out! Lets pray to the tailor gods that I do this right, lol.

I've practically been living in white slouchy tees and distressed denim ever since school started. Am I depressed to say that? Hell no. Would 16-year old me be depressed to hear that? Hell yes. I think it's odd how peoples style has change over the year. When I first started blogging, I was all about mix-matching prints, high waisted shorts, nylons, and boots; a.k.a the "grunge" or "vintage" style. Now I feel that I calmed down from the pile of prints went towards a more "college" kid look of minimalistic. And I mean, you can't get any simpler than a white tee, distressed jeans, a layer of necklaces, and chunky sandals.

EMERGENCY OVERALLS

Hello you fellow friends! I'm am trying really hard not to sneeze right now as I am typing this because I'm currently at the student lobby which happens to be really quit... and awkward. Well I hope you guys are doing great! I thought I had the whole routine down but I guess it's really hard for me to juggle school, a social life, and blogging. I'm trying though, seriously. I was thinking about making a video about my first 2 months of college were like. Would you be interested or is that boring? I mean everyone goes through college differently, maybe we can relate on some things. Let me know! ♡

Overalls are like my #1 clothing to go to when I have no idea what to wear. I mean, you can't really go wrong with it because all you need to do is add a t-shirt, some nice kicks, and a messy hair-do and then ta-dah! You look ready in like 5 mins! This is exactly what I did with this look, lol. I'll be wearing these more often this season for awesome layered looks. Yes! I'm super excited about Fall and sweaters, lol. 

Happy First Day of Fall!
