super sized

A trend I've been loving are t-shirt dresses. They really speak to my- I want to feel like I'm in pajamas but also look socially acceptable and put together- nature. All the while having plenty of space after a big meal. Priorities y'all. But seriously, they are awesome. You just add some boots, a hat, or maybe some outerwear and you are GOOD TO GO. Such an easy, relaxed look that can be appropriate for most occasions. 

Also, anyone heading to the desert next week?! This is the first time in the past four years that I *gasp* will not be attending the actual Coachella festival. I probably will have major fomo but I think it's time to retire my cutoffs. At least for now. But this year I will be doing something different which is heading to the desert strictly for some party fun! Definitely time to switch it up. Stay tuned my loves!

motel rocks shoot

This is no April fools...that really is me! A couple months ago I did a shoot with my amazing friend and photographer Silke for Motel Rocks. We've done shoots before frolicking in the desert and stomping the streets of my neighborhood. The lovely people at Motel asked me to be their Style Crush for the month. Silke and I took this as a fun opportunity to try something different i.e. style/make myself look completely opposite of what I normally would do. 

We crimped, teased, and pinned the shit out of my hair. Even added some pink because, why not? Everything down to my makeup was out of my normal comfort zone. Let me tell you what...I had a blast! When I see the pictures I feel like I'm looking at a different person. Stranger danger! To see my full feature and interview head here. I'm talking my biggest blogging disasters, fav LA hangouts, and how my makeup routine is pretty much the same whether I'm going to a wedding or to the grocery store.

Has anyone seen March? I'm not quite sure where it went...! Holy moly time is flying by. The temperatures are heating up (even more) which is a problem because I still haven't gotten the air conditioner in my car fixed. It's like every day I have my own personal sauna on wheels. Not enjoyable. 

My goal in the next couple of weeks is to finally make my way to the beach. I've had a yearning to just sink my toes into the sand and acquire awkward tan lines. I have a few one-piece suits, including this one by Volcom, that are screaming for some salty air. On the pursuit of happiness!

This set by Jac Vanek was calling my name the moment I set my eyes on it. Bell sleeves, cropped, and a maxi skirt- screams Jill Wallace all day long. I've been infatuated with matching sets for a while now and I don't see the infatuation dying down any time soon. FINE BY ME. 

I cannot believe tomorrow is already Friday. This week has simultaneously dragged/flown by. But the most important thing is the weekend is almost here. Wish me luck that I shake this cold I've been trying to fight as well as finally being fully moved out of my old apartment. Weekend warrior indeed!

festivus for the rest of us

It's happening people. We are knee deep in festival season! The energy during this time of the year is infectious. Everyone's shedding layers and amping up for spring/summer shenanigans. It's not surprising that the fashion really speaks to me. 

When it comes to festivals, I will have to admit that most of my favorite memories come from them. You really step into an alternate universe where your main focus is making it to the next show, dancing your face off with the friends that you (hopefully) find, all the while appearing somewhat like a human with your shit somewhat together. I will never forget these experiences and hope to make many more of them in the future. So God speed and good luck to everyone braving the heat/crowds/dehydration this season. The hangover really hurts, but boy is it worth it.

Well hello friends! I feel like so much has changed since I've last posted. I didn't realize I was on such a hiatus! Life, yah know? Since the last time we spoke regarding my cautious feelings towards Valentine's Day, I have been non-mother-effin-stop. By that I mean just trying to keep my head above water- but in a good way. Although being busy gives me moments of massive anxiety, I really do feed off of it. I like a challenge and work best under pressure. 

In case you didn't notice, I have a new blog look (finally!) and I MOVED! Finding a place in LA that is reasonably priced and has at least 80% of the things on your wish list is hard. But my prayers of finding a "unicorn" happened and I couldn't be happier. I've only been here for less than two weeks and I already feel so at home. I have tons of new outfits I'm excited to share and nonsense to spew so stay tuned!

Oh Valentine's Day...some people hate you, some love you, and some are like me and just look at it as an excuse to eat more chocolate. I've never gotten worked up about this holiday or most holidays for that matter. The tiny rebel that lives inside of me doesn't like being told how to feel on designated dates. I think it can be a nice reason to get extra cuddly with your cutie if you have one but I also don't see it as life crushing if you're single. It makes me sad when I see people get really down on themselves if they aren't in a relationship. Not to get too corny but I think the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. Everything after that kind of just falls into place. My boyfriend is currently driving across the country right now so today I plan on running errands, finally unpacking, and apartment hunting. Now does that scream romance or what?! So whether you're single or have a boy toy by your side, I would like to send an extra dose of love from me to you! ::millions of heart emojis::
