Sometimes a dress enters your life that is so dreamy and fits so well you almost don't believe it's real. Enter this beauty by Tularosa, which is the bohemian sister brand of my beloved Lovers + Friends. I'm obsessed with this neckline so I naturally had to drape myself in some long necklaces paired with chokers. I had a fun weekend hanging out with friends and celebrating birthdays. I'm not big on my own, but boy do I love celebrating other people completing another year around the sun. But next year, my friends, that all changes because I'm going to do it up big! Until then, BRB, gotta go swing.

Everyone has their own way of relieving stress, tension, and all the other annoyances that life brings about on occasion. I'm too impatient for baking, and I never got quite good at knitting, so my stress reliever is taking pictures. Or I should say, having pictures taken of me. I don't know how to describe it other than being very liberating. I block out all other distractions for a bit and literally get lost. That sounded really deep- it ain't that deep. It's mostly just fun. It's like I'm playing a character of whoever I feel like being that day. Could be a sassy bitch, a desert diva, or a playful princess. The world is my oyster! I'm lucky to have talented, multi-hyphenated friends like my girl Silke to twerk in the desert with. We hit the road, french fries in hand, and made it just in time to get silly before the sun set. A successful afternoon indeed.

I've loved septum piercings for a while now. Seeing it on bad ass chicks has a tendency to do that to a person. Fun fact about me- I am deathly afraid of needles. I also may or may not have commitment issues. For example, I love tattoos on other people. Don't even get me started. But when it comes to getting some permanent ink on myself I cringe and seclude to the closest corner. So, for all the commitment phobes/needle freaks out there- try out a faux septum ring. Kind of like training wheels in the form of nasal adornments. Is it wrong that at my age I'm still worried my mom will get mad at me for getting a piercing?!

It doesn't seem like the temperatures here in LA are dying down any time soon. We're in a heat wave y'all. It's a funny coincidence considering this is the time of year when most girls start to get the itch for fall clothing. The cries of women yearning to wear coats and boots can be heard and felt throughout the southern California lands. We're like ugh, I'm so over you tank top and denim shorts. Until the temperatures drop, I will be donning outfits that I consider transitional just to pretend like it's a necessary move (it's not). I'm currently gravitating towards dark, gothy, vamp vibes. Had to rock my favorite pair of Dr. Martens with this look cause, duh. Right now Dr. Martens is asking everyone the question, "What do you stand for?" Other than in line for some really bomb tacos, I definitely stand for individuality. I gravitate towards people who don't simply follow the crowd. Everything from what they say, to what they do, is tried and true. And because I cannot have one without the other, I also stand for genuine people with genuine hearts. Being sincere is as important to me as having the proper salsa options for my tacos. So in the end, I stand for the free-thinkers who would never, ever, fathom hiding one ounce of it.

The western vibes are alive and well! I've teamed up with Levi's and Lookbook for a fun collab which was made even better because I got to shoot it with my boo Eugenie of Feral Creature. But wait, there's more. Our tag team blog escapade was shot by our other boo, Michelle! So amazing having such talented, babe-ing friends. Never have I ever shot blog pics with a friend before so this was quite the treat. We both threw on our favorite Levi's piece and transformed into some denim divas. I loved seeing how different our styling was for the shoot. I of course couldn't escape my boho ways. Eugenie is a chameleon and can pull off so many styles. This day she went the preppy route. Très chic. I'm excited to wear this denim western shirt all the way through winter. Do I sense a Canadian tuxedo in my future? The answer is yes. Yes I do.

Summer may technically be over but if you live in southern California you know the summers here are endless. It's around this time that girls start to fiend for colder weather so they can wear their neglected collection of scarves and jackets. I wouldn't say I'm quite ready for the cold, but Lord knows I love me leather jacket weather. You don't realize how lucky we are to not have to bundle up each and every time we step out the door. Spoiled rotten I tell you what! So since I love to cheers- cheers to the end of summer and still wearing white after Labor Day. I break rules!!
