Some Days

Can you believe it's almost December already? I have a christmas tree set up in my place, and I think it calls for an ugly sweater party, ha! The abrupt (cold) weather in LA got me pretty sick. Hopefully that isn't the case for any of you, since being sick is a pain in the derriere. I tried my best to ignore my sickness, but it caught up to me. I went to San Francisco for a few days and went straight to work afterwards. Now its time for bed rest and binge watching some shows on Netflix-- don't judge me, it's been a crazy week! 
You might be seeing me in a lot of turtlenecks this winter. I don't know why, but I'm obsessed with them. I decided to 'edge' up the outfit with a harness, and add a little flair with the wide brim hat. I've enjoyed wearing simpler outfits lately, but this one needed a little something extra.

Sweater Weather

It's finally here--the much anticipated sweater weather, that is!
I'm happy to say that alas, I am able to wear all the turtle necks I've stocked up on.
A big thumbs up to my current favorite, the beige turtle neck (pictured above) by 2020 Ave.
It's time to dive into fall fashion, time to play with layers, and time for coats to make a comeback. 
Luckily it isn't too cold in LA (yet) -- Actually, if I were to be completely honest about the weather here, I'd say it has been freezing. 
But to many others, LA's definition of "freezing" does not compare to theirs. Nonetheless, I'm elated. Stay warm, folks!

2020 AVE
2020 Ave is a fashion forward store that is based online.
I'd describe them as chic and minimal, and always on point.
Here's a little more about them:
2020AVE is an online fashion destination for the sophisticated yet laid-back urban trend-setter who values exceptional style without compromising quality.
As I'd mentioned previously, this turtleneck is my current fave. I especially love the side slits as well as the oversized sleeves. Pair this with some leggings and you're good to go!

Romwe is another online based shop for women that offers hundreds of in trend clothing. 
From prints to cuts, Romwe is a great place to shop especially if you're on a budget. 
I had been looking everywhere for a simple denim skirt, and Romwe answered my prayers. 
"Denim" came into my vocabulary recently, so I thought I'd give it a go. I wondered why I didn't own a skirt like this before, but I'm glad I do now!

Attention to details --
You've probably noticed that I love wearing my white platforms on a daily basis. 
They do need some more love and care -aka- cleaning, but I hate taking them off. 
In my opinion, I don't think it's "bad" to wear things more than once. 
Make your outfit your own, whether you wear the same things or not.

Summer Picaresque

I guess this is my first post with my newly dyed blue hair!
I've been loving the color change, and hope you guys have, too. 
It's been a slow transition into color but so far I'm loving it. 
I apologize for the lack of posts... I've been a bit unorganized lately. 
I promise to bring you guys endless fall looks this season. (my favorite!)
As the photos above may suggest, It is -not- sweater weather in Los Angeles yet. 
We're still stuck in summer here -- a summer picaresque.
I hope everyone had a lively Halloween!
Now it's time to kick November in its ass. (woo!)

Mink Pink is a brand known for their girly vibes, sold in stores such as Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom. 
I styled the look with simple, white pieces to complement and further emphasize Mink Pink's boxy pink sweater. 
Once sweater weather finally hits Los Angeles, this will definitely be one of my go to looks to sport around town.

Attention to detail(s)
I always make sure to add a few unique elements to every outfit, just to spice things up. 
I paired a button up underneath the sweater with a pleated skirt to add a "school girl" vibe to the look. 
Details like the glasses, print socks, and collar harness really helped complete the look.

Who's ready for the fall?
I'm particularly excited for events like Halloween Horror Nights!

Currently, I am not in school -- I've got some (secret) plans that I will be announcing soon!
Stay tuned for exciting news!

Summer's End

Rain is a rare sight for us "Angelinos". 
Although I love the rain, this must mean summer really is over-- I've finally come out of denial.
Fall is coming, which means coats and layers (my fave)! 
However, it won't be raining much longer here in sunny LA.
Lately, my mind has been roaming wild. 
There are many things to get done and much too little time for sleep.
I promise to share some new things with you all!
I'm excited for new things to come.

- Collaboration with -

From their "Luma" collection, I chose to style these rad dungarees.
It was love at first sight. But that's not all--
This is the easiest, comfiest thing to wear.
I styled it with the "crosslight" bikini top for more mesh detail. 
Who doesn't love mesh?
