Splish Splash of Color

IMG_3579 This graphic tank is one of my all time favorites, especially in the summertime. I love that the strong graphic is contrasted by more feminine blue and pink colors. Normally I wouldn't go be so match-matchy with my accessories, but I think pops of color are perfect for summertime and decided to have fun complimenting the splashy design in the tee.

Today was super lazy for me. I suppose this is okay for summertime, but I am hoping to kickstart my day tomorrow and get a lot done! For now I am off to spend some time hanging out with friends, because that's what summer is really all about.

DSC_0551 Today I wanted to show how I transitioned the same dress from day to night, but when both looks are very casual and involve a lot of basics. The first outfit is what I wore to walk downtown to my favorite coffee shop and study, and the second shows how I added some extra layers for going to studio later in the night.

Although I wore a lot of red in my past two outfit posts, I am finding that I am more drawn to wearing neutrals now that my hair is a bolder color. I really like how the color looks against denim and black. I'll have to experiment with neutrals more in the next few weeks!

Since it was dark while I wanted to shoot this, I ended up in my room. However, I don't mind this because I like showing aspects of my space and one of the latest painting I've been working on!

OOTD_65: "Paradise"

DSC_0172 So today is the day I am en route back to California. As you're reading this, I'm probably on the plane wearing a flannel and leggings--not this outfit. However, I got these leggings for Christmas and was dying to style them right away. For school days I plan to wear them casually, but today I paired them with this spiked cutout dress I found at TJ Maxx. I thought these pieces went together well because the dress is a little on the short side and also doesn't compete with the leggings too much. Finally, how amazing is the spiked clutch? I got it as a gift from my mom, she knows me so well!

The track for today's outfit is "Paradise" by Coldplay. Soemthing about the intro and these leggings seemed to go together for me. Listen along here while you view!

I've had a great break being at home for a month, and am going to be a little homesick when I get back to school. However, I'm looking forward to layering pieces for the colder weather and all the fun plans I have for the next quarter with my friends and school!

DSC_1223 After making this skull tee last night, I needed to wear it right away. Today Jake and I were headed to Trader Joe's so we could make lunch and also worked on some upcoming DIY projects for the holiDIY series! Tonight we're headed to the record store, so I was sure to bring a warm jacket. I picked this denim one up from Goodwill yesterday while I was shopping for tees and fabric for projects. I like the throwback vibe of this outfit and completed it with some old patterned Keds to tie the whole look together.
