White Hot Technicolor

IMG_5490 I'm all for basics, but summer needs some color! I'm wearing white pieces to stay true to my personal style, and threw on a bright skirt for a fresh look. Finally, the studs on both the shoes and the bag are keeping it tough. I can feel my style evolving in a more minimal direction, but I think I'll always be that little 90's girl obsessed with Lisa Frank and rainbows.

Notice the paint marks on my hands? I'm working on a bunch of skateboards right now, and just finished one up tonight. I can't wait to share it with you! In my book, messy hands, are happy hands. Thanks for reading! x. Paige

Hints of Gold

IMG_5274 I don't know how I forgot about this skull-studded tunic top hiding in my closet! It's so summery and light, and paired perfectly with my handmade daisy trim shorts for a day at the office. Like I've said in the past, my office is pretty casual so I can get away with wearing an outfit like this. I paired up the combo with lots of gold pieces, and even added my pretty silver Duplika feather earrings to the look because there's a lot of different mixed metals going on in this outfit!

Skater Summer

IMG_3521 This is the epitome of an Arizona summer outfit for me. A tank, cutoffs, and my staple Vans. I found these Free People shorts at TJ Maxx on clearance for $20 and am loving the unique color they added to my closet! To dress up this casual look a bit, I added gold accents and this leopard headband. I really love this headband trend at the moment because it just adds something extra to your look!

"Artist Appreciation"

Photo May 01, 8 25 22 PM I've been eyeing and laughing over this shirt for at least six months now. I first learned about the artist through Instagram (seriously where I find out about anything cool) and finally took the plunge and bought it with some commission money from a recent art piece. In my opinion no one is more destined to be a closet metalhead than Ron Swanson, and judging by the smirks I got from passerby's at school today, I think many would agree. Confused? Watch Parks and Recreation. He had me at "meat tornado."

During a study break last night I also made this headband from some extra tshirt material! It adds some extra excitement to a pretty basic outfit. I was hooked and made another for myself and one for my roommate. I can't wait to show you the others in future posts!
