Case of the Neons

IMG_1823 What better way to spice up a gloomy Monday morning than some pops of neon? Lately I have been drawn to neon to brighten up my spring looks. I talked about this beanie in my April Favorites video and I've never found a beanie that fits my head so well! It has the perfect amount of slouch and stays on all day. I thought the beanie was the perfect match for this DIY necklace I whipped up a couple weeks ago. I really like how the orange tones match and then contrast the neutral colors.

OOTD_72 "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

DSC_0529 Let's get right to the point, as you can tell, I dyed my hair last night! I was planning on going more in the direction of dark brown, but I saw the auburn on the box and decided to go for it. I really like how it looks. Also, I'm not big into the whole permanent dye thing, so I used Clairol Natural Instincts, and can change it in a month or so--or keep it if I like it!

The new hair inspired me to just go all out grunge today from the classic 90's flannel-tied-around-waist look and even a choker necklace. If you want to try a grunge look, take it one step further with a pair of Doc Martens. I would have thrown mine on, but its pretty warm here today (finally!) so I stuck with my favorite combat boots instead.

In pure 90's fashion, the track for today's outfit is "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana. Listen along below while you view!

I'm back from my roadtrip to LA--I had such a blast! I met up with 4 of my best friends from home to enjoy the holiday weekend together.

On our first day, we hit up Amoeba Records. It's become one of our go-to places in Hollywood, and one of my favorite record stores because the prices are actually reasonable and the selection is amazing.

I love this photo of Jake and I! I'm wearing my DIY Unif-inspired tee (see my tutorial here ), a camel colored skater skirt from Forever 21, Steve Madden studded combat boots, a cheetah print bag from Cotton On, and my favorite Forever 21 sunnies.

I always come home with awesome finds--I can't wait to add these patches to my favorite vests!

We also had to walk over to Kat Von D's High Voltage Tattoo, because for as many times as I have been to LA, I had never seen it in person! Here's Jamie and I cheesin it outside in front of the huge mural.

I threw on this cross knit sweater from Forever 21 when it got cold.

Later in the day we headed to another one of our favorite spots, the Santa Monica pier and then shopped at night! I love shopping in Santa Monica because the outdoor mall is really fun. I picked up two cute rings from Brandy Melville while I was there.

thanks so much for reading--I'll hopefully be doing another post/haul soon about my trip to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl Flea Market with my friends BP and Courtney. For now, I'm totally swamped working on my studio project as we get close to the end of the quarter, but expect it in the future! xo, Paige

today was slightly rainy but also sort of warm so i opted for this thin sweater. i added my favorite tapestry clutch to add some color to the outfit, but the subdued colors are great for fall!

isn't this bracelet awesome? it was made by my friend Alana and the beads spell out an inside joke between us in morse code!!
