Self Expression

I have been hitting up the Goodwill’s around LA recently and just happen to score amazing stuff everytime. I ran into this vintage Yves Saint Laurent blouse in Santa Monica and these high-waisted shorts in the SF Valley. Together, they make up the ultimate summer ensemble that allows me to move freely anywhere, anytime. Most of my jewelry is vintage, but I like to mix in my rings from Forever 21 and Obey. But, I’m constantly on the look out for new designer pieces. Hope you enjoy these funky photos!

Overall, my weekend was pretty chill. I went on a really long 5 mile hike with one of my best friends (whom I’m hoping to photograph for my blog!). I did get a nice light tan and some really sore muscles! But it feels so good to get out there in the mountains and just sweat all your toxins out! My friends and I also went to Ventura Beach to read and relax. Right now, I’m reading Lolita which I totally recommend. I’ve just been releasing a ton of energy which feels great and refreshing. That’s what I love about summer, the endless opportunities to enjoy yourself!

I try to use some of my time browsing the latest lookbooks of all my favorite designers as well. Here, I have brand spankin new images of Z Berg of The Like, and model Hailey Gates for Wren! Wren’s soft fabrics and darling prints always keep me coming back for more. The cuts and shapes are my favorite. Girl-y with a little masculinity thrown in. It’s no wonder girls like Z Berg and Hailey Gates are the faces for their latest collection. It girls + Wren make the perfect combination! Check out some of my favorite looks from the collection!

With all the bright Summer colors floating about, I almost forgot how much I love a simple gray and black outfit. It brings me back to Alexander Wang Fall 2008, my absolute favorite collection…and the show’s really good soundtrack that I usually end up playing when I need some good tunes. I’m wearing an Elaine Kim cashmere crop top, Urban Outfitters trousers, vintage bag, and THE most comfortable Cole Haan sandals. It’s summer, a good excuse to show some skin with a crop top! Anywho, I’m just super happy it’s almost the weekend! It’s been one of the longest weeks for me including studying, exams, and castings. Much more coming up… but on the bright side, I have only about 2 more weeks till my trip to the East Coast! I’ll be working on a really awesome project with one of my favorite brands! I can’t wait to get the ball rolling! But first, I gotta pay my dues 🙂

I spent this afternoon writing up my paper for my crammed summer course. work + school= exhaustion. But only about 2 more weeks left of class and I’m freeeeeee! Here I am in my study strown across the floor (loose papers and books not pictured). The sun coming in through the shutters looked super cool so Dylana snapped some pictures. Who knew my study’s hardwood floors would be my new favorite backdrop? I’m wearing the new Queen’s Wardrobe Lace Jacket along with old Earnest Sewn denim shorts. The jacket has the best fit ever and is super light. Dreamy is the word. It’s official, you can call me an ivory lace wearing obsesser GEEK…that needs major sleep. Night night everyone! Enjoy your week 🙂

My latest discovery, Queen’s Wardrobe! I was browsing their site and fell in love with their easy and wearable pieces. Here I’m wearing their Chiffon Skirt. It’s gorgeous, no doubt about it. Most importantly, it has a nice luxurious quality and slim fit. Not something that is easy to find at a good price! This time of year, I’m all for linens and soft, neutral tones. It’s getting hot so I know I’ll be living in leg flaunting looks!

It’s only Tuesday and my week is already looking crazy. The next few days I’m shooting the Volcom ad campaign!! I’m super excited. I love their cool street style and I feel so lucky to be a part of the brand. And there are some cool events coming up this week, so I hope I find the time to attend and bring my friends along! Along with all the madness, I’ve got school. Poo! Major cram summer course, so I’ll be hitting the books in between bllaaa. But do enjoy your week everyone! I’ll keep you posted 🙂
