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!

Master of Puppets

IMG_2767 As a deep lover of crewnecks, I'm not sure as to why I never thought to throw one over a dress before. I love the casual cool look this achieves, especially when paired with a well worn pair of vintage Docs. I coveted this sweatshirt for months and, as usual, waiting until it got marked down and snagged it for less than 20 bones. Does anyone else feel like they can't justify paying more than $25 for an item? I'd bet money that 80% of my wardrobe cost less than that.

"Fly Like an Eagle"

IMG_0166 As promised, here is how I styled the statement belt that I mentioned in yesterday's post from my trip to a new vintage store in town! To compliment it's americana feel, I paired it with a classic white blouse and jean shorts. I love the natural vibe of this outfit, and how my gold and turquoise accessories finish it off.

I wore this outfit to Zia Records and dinner with my friends last night. At the store I picked up The Steve Miller Band's greatest hits album for a few bucks. Listening to it today, I realized "Fly Like and Eagle" was the perfect track for today's outfit to compliment my eagle belt. Listen along to the song below while you view!

OOTD_81: "Going to California"

DSC_0588 i didn't even plan to shoot my outfit today, but i pulled out this gem of a vintage tee from my closet today and realized i hadn't worn it since finding it at the Rose Bowl Flea Market, and hadn't shown it on my blog since my haul post--so i had to!

today i mixed colored and textures in my look with my outerwear and accessories. i think this outfit has more of an earthy vibe than i usually wear, but i am liking it. of course even when i change it up, some signature edge has found its way into my outfit. studded combat boots? check!

And yes, I'm already in California, but the track for today's outfit is my favorite Led Zeppelin song "Going to California" which I felt went well with the vibe of this look. Listen along here while you view
