"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!

"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!

"Killers"

DSC_1311 So this outfit prompts me to wonder if I should rename my blog "Countless Ways to Style Iron Maiden muscle tees." I'm joking of course, and I hope you guys aren't sick of seeing these tops. I just got such a great deal on eBay, they're super comfy, and are the perfect amount of bad ass vibes.

I paired it with my Unif Morrison pants, which I can't seem to take off lately. I just love the fit and that ankle slit. I die for the way that detail looks when paired with these red pumps from Target. That's another great thing about this outfit, it's under $60. Killer.

The track for today's outfit is "Killers," the title track for the album pictured on this shirt. Listen along below while you view!

I wore this outfit to dinner with friends my last night in California before spring break, and liked the classy casual look it gave me!

OOTD_98 "The Number of the Beast"

DSC_1249 One of my favorite items in my closet has to be this Iron Maiden muscle tee that I got off of eBay a while back. As always, eBay never lets me down and the seller that sold me the shirt actually messaged me and asked me if I wanted 2 more. Of course I snagged them up (for 5 bucks each) and am styling one today. I paired it will this sheer skull blouse. This is the first time I've worn it unbuttoned over another top but I'm loving it!

The track for today's outfit is "The Number of the Beast" by Iron Maiden, of course. Listen along here while you view!
