Sunday Morning Rain is Falling...

IMG_4828 Monsoon season is in full force over here in AZ. However, just because it's rainy, doesn't mean it gets cold. On Sunday I sported my favorite beanie and Docs to gear up against the rain, but still showed some skin and kept cool with cutoffs and a tank. I've noticed that I've been wearing a lot of neutrals recently, so I decided to add some neon to spice up this look. I love how it was a surprise pop, and reminds me to throw some more color into my outfits.

On this day, Jake and I puddle jumped over to Goodwill to search for some vintage goodies. I scored this camera for $6, and after loading it up with film, it was set to go! I'm excited to put it to use this summer because film causes you to photograph in a different way because you're more limited. As for digital photography, keep up with me on Instagram for snaps like this one!

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.

Into the Great Wide Open

IMG_1755 Finally a cold day has passed through and I got to pull out my prized Unif AWOL jacket. Since buying it in Chicago I hadn't had a chance to wear it, but today was the day. Lately I'm loving the look of neon mixed with neutrals (especially camo as a neutral) even though I think this trend is a little out of style, but I could care less about that. When you're going to wear one of your favorite pieces in your closet, why not throw on another? Which for me are my vintage Docs. They just complete an outfit so well in my opinion.

Today's outfit track is one that I felt went well with the camp/neon/tye-dye coming from this outfit. Listen along to "Into the Great Wide Open" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers while you view, here!

P.S. How awesome are these nails I got at Target? They are stick-on with a simple peel-off back, but they seriously last so long. They feel really strong on my nails and even made it through a beach day this weekend. Obsessed!

"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!
