Desert Dreamer

It's no doubt that kimonos are one of my favorite trends this season, but I'll admit that they're a bit boho for my taste. But with a pattern this gorgeous, I can't resist! So in order to make it a bit more "me" I love pairing mine with all black. Lately I've been struggling to find my style aesthetic, but for now I just want to enjoy being able to dress for whatever mood I'm feeling that day. If I want to wear spikes one day and floral the next, I just want to keep things fun!

Geometric Lace

IMG_3277 As I mentioned yesterday, I ended up needing to stay in town a day longer than I originally planned. You may remember my interview outfit for a study abroad scholarship a couple of weeks ago. Tonight was an award reception and I received one of the awards! I was so excited and thankful to receive it, and this is what I wore to it.

Sorry for such a short post--my Dad and hit the road right after the reception was over and I'm actually blogging from the car right now! Thank you Verizon hot spot! We are en route to Arizona and will be home tomorrow. I cannot wait!

"Bohemian Rhapsody"

20130419-200844.jpg

Although Coachella isn't really my type of music, I will admit that all of the festival fashions I'm seeing on my favorite blogs and Instagram accounts are influencing me! I normally wouldn't go in such a bohemian direction, but when I slipped on this bell-sleeved lace dress from my closet (a past Christmas Eve dress) I couldn't help but pair it with some accessories that put me in a flower child state of mind, rather than my typical studs and spikes.

To get really cliche on you, I chose "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen as tonight's outfit track, just because I rarely dress like this. Listen along below while you view, and enjoy!

Also, I know I promised that today would be an art post, but I couldn't help but share my outfit with you guys! Sometimes it is fun to dress out of your comfort zone and try a different style!

OOTD_78: "Look What Happened"

DSC_0804 I recently made a purchase from the online store By Samii Ryan, and this amazing head chain came free with my order! I love the piece but I was hesitant to style it because it is not my typical look. However, I realized that I should get inspired and decided to pair it with my favorite aztec flannel from UO. I incorporated some edgy elements to keep it touch with my personal style by layering over my embroidered skull shirt and throwing on my studded combat boots. I ended up loving this outfit and the head chain and think it would be great for a road trip or day of exploring outdoors.

The track for today's outfit is "Look What Happened" by Less Than Jake. Like this outfit, this song is still my style, but a little different than the usual. Listen along below while you view!
