OOTD_78: "Look What Happened"

DSC_0804 I recently made a purchase from the online store By Samii Ryan, and this amazing head chain came free with my order! I love the piece but I was hesitant to style it because it is not my typical look. However, I realized that I should get inspired and decided to pair it with my favorite aztec flannel from UO. I incorporated some edgy elements to keep it touch with my personal style by layering over my embroidered skull shirt and throwing on my studded combat boots. I ended up loving this outfit and the head chain and think it would be great for a road trip or day of exploring outdoors.

The track for today's outfit is "Look What Happened" by Less Than Jake. Like this outfit, this song is still my style, but a little different than the usual. Listen along below while you view!

OOTD 76_"Let Your Love Grow Tall"

DSC_0738 The best thing about Dr. Martens? They double as rain boots. Today was drizzly so I threw mine on over my cathedral leggings. I was excited to style these casually, in contrast to this outfit. Although it's typical to pair crazy pants with black pieces, I wanted to keep the outfit subdued. To add interest, I used layers with sheer and leather details. I topped off the look with my trusty BDG beanie, which is not only stylish, but hides my hair on a messy day when I'm late to class.

The track for today's outfit post is "Let Your Love Grow Tall" by Passion Pit. Listen along below while you view!

I'm loving the scenery in today's photos. Everything turns so green here when it rains that I couldn't resist! I'm working on having more interesting backgrounds in my photos--let me know what you think!

Hey guys! I wanted to share about my field trip in San Diego this past weekend and what I wore each day. It was super warm in SoCal so I kept it simple and functional for all of our events. On our trip we did 4 studio tours, went to the Salk Institute and UCSD campus, the beach, and the Kobey Flea Market! ps. this also is the first post i've done about architecture, so I've added an Architecture category to the blog!

My class went on four studio tours learning about the techniques and built work of various firms around San Diego. I really learned a lot from each firm, but I have to say that touring the studio/home of Lloyd Russell was my favorite stop of the day. He is an alumni of my school and is basically a certified badass. I really admire his hands on involvement in the construction process of his buildings and his ability to save money on projects.

This image shoes the glass window that we could stand on. The window was hooked to a motor that let it down as it opened to the outdoors and became a glass patio.

For the last part of our trip, my friends and I hit up the Kobey Swap Meet! I had never been to a flea market before, so I was really excited. The flea market had a good mix of clothing, antiques, and home decor items--but I ended up buying just a couple of non-fashion related items.

This is the vintage toolbox I scored to store all of my architecture supplies in studio. I also bought a blank skateboard deck for $2 that I plan to paint in the future.
