Simple Things

I adore simplicity, I crave simplicity in this crazy world. I wore this on Sunday and haven't gotten around to posting it until now, I'll save you from the lecture on how busy I am (again). Black and white is such an infinite and perfect combination that I will never run out of ways to use. Sundays are my closet-experimentation days but I went pretty neutral in a striped shirt, black jeans, beatle boots, and my chambray top. My mom actually entrusted me with one of her beloved Coach bags, I love this one because it's perfectly my size and it has the structured style I've been looking for forever. Cutting it short tonight due to looming piles of homework and an already-weak sleep schedule I need to maintain. See you soon my darlings xoxo

Happy Thursday, or Friday, it's getting close to midnight. Well I was really digging my outfit today, but I ran a little late on taking photos so I had to use flash. Flash pictures are like sunset-lighting pictures, I absolutely love them every once and a while. Plus, velvet and flash photography were truly made for each other. 
I found this delicate velvet little thing at the Haight St. Crossroads during summer, it's so wonderfully different and I don't own anything else in this color. Today I layered it on top of my white H&M crop top and leather skirt. When I was on my way out of the house this morning I realized how cold it was outside (thank you, transitional weather) so I grabbed my mom's vintage Calvin Klein denim jacket. I'm convinced that this jacket and I were meant to be, and I finally get to use the #mycalvin that I find so pretentious and hilarious at the same time. And I finally got socks that are thick enough to withstand my oxfords for hours at a time, which means they will be worn much more often! What a successful day thanks to a successful look that made me happy. It's actually terrifying how my outfits have such heavy influence on daily mood.

Coming Up Roses

Oh my goodness, I'm pretty sure this is the longest time I've gone without posting! I am so sorry, I try to keep consistent with my beloved readers but I have so much going on. According to my Nike+ app, it's been a month and a half since my last run. That's how busy I am! So I pinky promise that I am keeping you guys a priority! 
Well this past weekend was absolutely perfect, sometimes I adore when my weekend is totally packed with activity. I FINALLY got to see Annabelle (horrible by the way) on Friday, Horror Nights on Saturday-awesome as usual, and the AIDS Walk on Sunday! I did the AIDS Walk with my best friend and it was so much fun, mostly because it's in West Hollywood and we were constantly making side-trips into vintage stores and cute cafes. Perhaps a post about it soon? 
I bought this sweater at the Goodwill on Beverly, we were there for hours and tried on sooo much stuff. As soon as I saw this sweater I had to buy it because it reminds me of the cool grandmas who still buy sparkly nail polish and wear perfectly-coordinated outfits while shopping for kale juice at Whole Foods. I aspire to be that type of senior citizen. 
For this Monday's look. I paired my new sweater with comfy and slightly-baggy Urban Outfitters jeans, Dr. Marten oxfords that I'm determined to break in, and a tank that is coincidentally the exact same shade as the sweater's details. I pulled over next to this sidewalk to take pictures as the sun was starting to set, simply because it seemed Autumn-y to me. Well I will certainly try to post within the next few days, love you lots!

Kimonos Pt. 2

Kimonos, kimonos, kimonos. Maybe I just love them because they look so good in photos. My mom enlisted my help to clean out her closet in a Crossroads-selling-purge, and I ended up hauling a majority of her stuff away to my closet. I wore this vintage kimono on Thursday with an old tank and my high waisted jeans, I felt so flowy in it, and velvet is basically the key to my heart. Beatle boots finished it off, they make that satisfying clack-noise that I adore so much.

Oxford Comma

Happy October, a.k.a my favorite month of the entire twelve that are offered! Not gonna lie, I was really excited to wear these shoes because I could use that Vampire Weekend title. My Dr. Marten obsession is going strong with my mom's old oxfords that are now (partially) mine to wear. I paired them with my flowery H&M dress and perfectly fuzzy Urban cardigan, and I was comfy throughout Monday's weird transitional-weather. Dresses with sweaters layered over them are my absolute favorite during Fall, besides flannels of course. 
Sunset-photos are so magical, I love how sometimes the light is perfectly golden and it just looks so cozy and Autumn-y. I know sunset-photos are always a little fuzzy, but I think you guys can handle a little bad quality once and a while. Talk to you soon cuties xoxo
