Little Black Suit










My latest obsessions: chocolate coconut milk ice cream from Trader Joes, James Brown music, and monochromatic summer suits. This post is comin atcha pretty late due to the crazy heat, and the crazy amount of time that the heat lasts. I rode my bike for about four blocks to get to this spot and by the time I arrived I was drenched in sweat. A small victory today: I made a topknot with my shoulder-length hair with the help of about five bobby pins. Pretty soon I'll get the hang of this length and how to play around with it. 
This outfit popped into my head while thinking of what to wear on this zillion degree day. Unfortunately I was just going to Target and this level of fancy-ness wasn't necessary, but this outfit is definitely in mind for my next night out. I'm in love with the fact that the shorts and tank are the exact same material, and all black outfits are just the greatest. Especially all black outfits that feature gold sequin crosses and beatle boots. And yeah, this is the third post in a row with my beatle boots. Ask. Me. If. I. Care. See you soon, remember to drink some iced drinks and reapply your sunblock!

Short Hair Don't Care












Haircut! Finally! I'm so in love with this length, I want to keep it this way for a while.
Lately I've been in an H&M dress-buying frenzy due to a flurry of sales and a radical gift card. This one is silky, flowy, and ridiculously comfortable (and of course the fact that it has my favorite color Violet doesn't hurt). I paired it with my new hat, also from H&M, and my beatle boots. Get ready to see this hat a lot.

I Could Be Your Favorite Girl













Hello again! Lately I've been channeling Gwen Stefani, I've loved her forever but these past couple days have been extra intense. This outfit was inspired by the "Rich Girl" music video. If only I had her abs...

I found this Adidas jacket at Urban Outfitters in San Francisco and the second I tried it on I never wanted to take it off again. The silhouette is perfectly boxy, the print is perfectly velvety, the neon is perfectly hidden. I'm in love. I'm imagining it with Tevas or Juju Jellies, neither of which I own, so I improvised with my beloved beatle boots. And yep, I'm wearing a sports bra as a top. Don't knock it 'till you try it.

Insightful








Another beachy post! Awkward angles because a tripod was not high on my list of things to bring to the beach. 
This is quite possibly my new favorite shirt. I found it at Crossroads. Literally, I found it; it was crumpled below the women's jeans. I'm pretty sure it was made for another gender, but I sliced off the bottom to make it a nice length. If you don't see what's special about this shirt, just turn your head upside down...

Workin On the Railroad













Super super casual outfit that I wore when driving through Oakland, a beautiful (in my opinion) city with a horrible reputation. These train tracks were irresistible. But let me tell you, walking directly on top of railroad tracks is the most terrifying thing. I was looking over my shoulder every five seconds in case a silent train suddenly plowed my way with no warning; and I was in a hurry to get out of there. I thought my new t-shirt from Crossroads played well with the graffiti art and tagging on the buildings in the background. It's the weirdest shirt ever, it's so confusing that I love it. "Good Mood" "Bad Mood" on either sleeve sealed the deal.
