Desert Vibes

IMG_3197 My skin is getting tanner, my hair is getting lighter, and my mood has lifted about 200%. Summer is here and I am having some southwestern vibes drawing me in. I'm attracted to aztec prints and desert colors lately so when I spotted this top on Asos, I was instantly in love. I wasn't crazy about the price though so I knew I had to DIY it! More on that brand later because I'm obsessed and also because the tutorial for this top is coming in a few days!

I paired my new item with some colored pieces such as this bandeau and ear cuff, and kept it casual with ripped jeans. I spent the day going to lunch and thrifting with my friend Alana. The sad part was that I said goodbye to her, but the good part was that we found such good pieces. I of course filmed a haul for you and can't wait to style the finds!

"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!
