Motorhead in Moorhead

IMG_3760 My cousin's wedding is tonight and I will be wearing a maxi dress by Reformation, but today we prepped the reception hall. I wore cutoffs and a tee to stay comfy while I made flower arrangements and decorated with my family. I chose this vintage Motorhead tee because I felt that the warm tones in the graphic went well with the aztec embellishment on these shorts.

Although my cousin lives in North Dakota, Minnesota is right on the border so technically we are staying in Moorhead, Minnesota. A little Motorhead in Moorhead if you will? Anyways I'm off to get ready because the ceremony starts at 4! I will have a post up tomorrow on what I wore and hopefully a few photos from the wedding. Thanks for reading! x, Paige

DIY Asos Inspired Aztec Tank

If you read my outfit post Desert Vibes, then you saw my latest DIY creation, an aztec embellished top! I was inspired by the tank top below, which I originally spotted on Asos. The brand is called "Freak of Nature" and I'm obsessed with their southwestern yet edgy pieces that have graphic prints, cutouts, and interesting textiles. I loved the cool southwestern feel of this top, and wanted to recreate it. I chose to just do the aztec trim for a simpler look to suit my own style, but you could add the turquoise beads and fringe as well! IMG_3155 my DIY

A litle trip update: I'm blogging from the road again and will be home in a few hours!

Thanks so much for reading, and have a great weekend!

"Hotel California"

IMG_1631 The title of this track is me paying homage to the beautiful weather we're having in California lately. Being from Arizona, I like it a little on the warmer side and today was just that. At 10 AM I was tanning on my front lawn while I studied, and by 6 PM when I was walking home from my favorite coffee shop, it was still just as warm. I'm grateful because yes, it reminds me of Arizona, but I also know that its a lot hotter there right now, so I'm enjoying this.

I opted to stay cool in a loose woven lace top and vintage shorts, accessorized with a new DIY headband and some non-too-fussy arm candy.

Here's the track for you. Listen along while you view!

"Ooh La La"

DSC_1243 Who says you should wear sweats during finals week? I decided to wear these bright pants today to cheer up my mood that is less than ideal while studying. I also added my Wildfox-inspired DIY tank that I hadn't worn yet! If you haven't seen that tutorial, you can check it out here!

Today's outfit track is a song I have always liked, "Ooh La La" by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals that I think had the perfect amount of punch to compliment today's look. Listen along below while you view!
