Downtown Adventures

Hat/Shirt, Melrose Flea Market; Shorts, Forever 21; Shoes, H&M.

I'm on spring break! Wooo! So my friend and I decided to explore downtown LA. The last two were from the Art District at Wurstkuche which is the best sausage place ever! Then we headed over to Olvera Street and went into the Avila Adobe, the oldest house in Los Angeles! I'm just loving the heat out here!
That's my friend Celine. She's awesome. Those are pictures of her trying to be a cactus. 

4 days until Coachella 2012!!!!

Spring Rains

Top, Thirfted; Sweater, Goodwill; Jeans, BDG-OU; Shoes, Vintage.


My sister!
Top, Lush; Skirt, Topshop; Shoes, Doc Martens; Scarf, Cotton On.

So here I am, ready for spring, and then there's a storm and it rains. So I layered up in my winter darks and opened up my closet for something warm and my new pale pink cashmere from Goodwill calls to me. 
I know cashmere is a wintery/fall fabric, like velvet, but in the right colors it's the perfect summer night sweater, or, as seen here, spring layer. 

I was at my friend Halley's beautiful house. You can see her room, and her makeup there. She took a good hour to get ready. I got a few good pictures of her make-up process before my camera ran out of batteries. She's always cute, and my best shopping buddy. Then there's Holly. She's cute and has a great fashion sense too (since she just wears my clothing) but we're working on getting her a new wardrobe for next year.

Rosemary's Baby

I've always been a movie person. Some people connect to music, I connect to movies and television. I love the lighting, the music, the words, and of course, the fashion. And the classic movies have it all.
Last night I watched Rosemary's baby for the first time and I couldn't stop talking about her outfits. From the first moment I saw Mia Farrow in the white dress, I was in love. Everything she wears is wonderfully simple and elegant, and completely in right now. Mia Farrow in the 60s/70s is officially a style icon of mine. The hair and the clothing, the voice and the body, she's perfect. So here are a few of my favorite pieces.

Color Shock

I know that it's not actually spring yet but in yesterday it was 85 degrees and staying warm. I have spring on the mind.

So since I was dressing for warmth, I started to think about what it was that I wanted to wear this spring. Colors popped into my mind, some that I've been obsessed with for a bit already and some that I know I need to be on the look out for from now on.

What better spring color than mint? It's light, airy and just plain adorable. As of now, I own a pair of minty taupe suede maryjanes and a mint blazer (posted earlier). My nails are mint as I type and I just want my life to be in mint right now!


This neutral is such a perfect color for spring. It's light, but still wintry. It makes a good base to any outfit. The shoes are the best part for me. I love brown shoes and those chelseas have been calling my name for months. I had wanted black but now these own my heart. Unfortunately, the only camel colored item in my wardrobe is a big overcoat, not very spring. 


What's more spring than crochet? Even though white is great for any season, these specific items called my name. The long sleeves in white are thin enough to work for a cooler spring day. Also, any colored bottom looks perfect with a white top. And I may try to rock a hat this year (but my head looks odd in hats, sigh).


It started with coral lipstick and now I'm in love. I bought a pair of high waisted cord shorts from Topshop in Chicago (which look perfect in a white top, as mentioned above). I'll post a look with them soon. But this makes for a nice accessories color, nails, or shoes.

(All of these collages were made on polyvore and can be found on my profile)

I guess the gist of it is that light colors and more pastel colors are going to be the color of my spring (and probably my summer since camp means limited shopping... very limited). I've always loved lighter colors, and I'm really looking forward to sporting them. 
But we'll see if I can find/remember to find these colors.
