"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!

"She Doesn't Get It"

IMG_1432 As I mentioned in this post, I'm finding myself drawn to the bohemian look lately with the warm sun and spring blooms everywhere around me. Without compromising my personal style, today I mixed the boho with the edge. What is a mainly edgy outfit was changed up a bit with my aztec print cardigan that I got from a local surf shop my freshman year. I love spicing up something that I haven't worn forever in a new way!

The track for today's outfit is "She Doesn't Get It" by my all-time favorite band, The Format. They have provided my favorite tunes ever since I was introduced to them in middle school because they were local. Now broken up, but you can still listen to front-man Nate Ruess as the lead singer of Fun. Listen along below while you view!

I never get over how pretty my town is. I took these photos is a standard office parking lot a block over from my house, and yet this is the view next to it. You can see hills like this in any direction you look, and it never gets old!

"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!
