Huntington Beach Style

IMG_5962 I am back from California! My friends Jake, Jamie, Ben, and I took a roadtrip to SoCal for the weekend for a last summer hurrah. We had such a good time, I love my friends because they find the funnest things to do in our free time. I decided not to take my computer on the trip and just take a blogging break and enjoy our time together. However, now that I'm back I have so much to share with you from our trip and also all of the exciting preparation for my trip to Copenhagen!

On Friday after going rock climbing, we stopped by Huntington Beach to throw the football around and grab some dinner. This is the casual outfit I wore that was perfect for playing in the waves. I haven't worn this vintage tee I got at flea market in so long, but I loved the light feel of it for a summer day!

We came back from our trip just in time for my birthday! I'm finally 21 today, I can't believe it! Tonight I will be celebrating with a bunch of my friends at dinner and then heading to Old Town Scottsdale now that I'm legal. I am so excited to celebrate tonight and will hopefully find some time to document my obnoxious party dress. Thanks for sticking around while I was out of town, and hope you had a great weekend! x.

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

Over It All

IMG_5112 Today I was busy painting and checking things off of my to-do list, and overalls were the perfect utilitarian choice for getting work done! I picked these babies up at Goodwill last week (half off sale, ya!) and boy were they ugly. The denim was an awful, cheap looking wash. However when I got them home, I just cut them into shorts, bleached them a little, and then cuffed them and I was good to go! Today I wore them in a skater style with my favorite Vans snapback and high tops, but I also can't wait to wear them with a simple topknot and white tee.

Girl On Fire

IMG_4986 A lot of the street style I've been admiring as of late has been from European cities and New York. These styles are, not surprisingly, very focused on neutrals. This influence as well as my transition into office attire has me wearing a lot more neutral outfits than usual. I'm not complaining, but for the summer season I think color is necessary. On this day I pulled out my DIY clutch that adds a statement to my outfit, but still stays professional with its hardware detailing.

After wearing this thrifted maxi skirt once before, I was torn between chopping off the interior lining, or just leaving it be. Well, I spotted my fabric scissors one day and that skirt had a new fate. I am so glad I cut it! I love that the lace detail shows now, adding so much more depth to my outfit.
