Dog Days of Summer

Photos by Jessica Aragon

Shorts: DIY Levi's; Top: F21; Necklace: Lux; Wrist Jewelry: Gifted; Shoes: Converse
             Since I've been a lazy bum this summer regarding this here blog, I decided to go all out and start the new school year off with a photo-shoot! My wonderfully talented friend Jessica took me to a surprise location and somehow managed to make me look good in the 100 degree weather. Plus, the location is rad. I mean, an American flag garage? What? Plus, there were these adorable pitbull puppies. Who doesn't love puppies?
         The shorts I'm wearing are my new favorites. I'm literally obsessed with them. Originally they were a pair of my uncle's Levi's which I turned into cut-offs and then distressed them. DIY for the win. The top half of my outfit (the top, necklace, and jewelry) were part of my Fashion's Night Out get-up. I simply couldn't resist recycling them for this shoot, and I'm glad I did! I'll post pictures from FNO tomorrow (hopefully). 
         I'll leave you guys with a picture of the pups from the shoot. Ta-ta for now!

The Face of a Woman

Sweater, Bag: F21; Shorts: DIY;
             I really can't keep spacing out like this and no posting for a whole month. I moved out of my college dorm room (I know, crazy, right?), visited some old friends, went to the beach, and read five books. As you can see I've been keeping myself busy during the first two weeks of summer vacation. This past weekend my family and I went to the Norton Simon Museum of Art in Pasadena, and I must say, our ancestors really had a thing for nude portraits. I mean, really. Anyway, Have a happy Fourth of July since I won't be posting tomorrow-- I'll be kicking it at Huntington Beach all day and night.

Bright Young Things

 Dress: Thrifted; Hat: Target; Socks: F21; Wedges: Payless
            I mentioned that I have been working on a final project, and here it is! For my Style and Cultural Studies course I was required to write an essay on something and submit a creative sidebar alongside it. My project was on fashion in the 1920s and how it has influenced todays styles. 
           Last weekend I was able to go to my grandparents house at the beach (gorgeous, right?!), and I took part of a day to frolic on the beach in my thrifted goods while my younger sister filmed me. The weather was lovely, the food was great-- can you say homemade fired chicken?? YUM.-- and best of all, I got to spend some time with my dad and sister before returning back to Davis to prepare for finals week and move-out. I can't believe I'm almost done with my freshman year of college! Crazy stuff, man. 
          If you'd like to check out the short film I made, wonder on over to my YouTube channel here!

School Daze

Dress: Asos; Sweater: Thrifted; Shoes: Steve Madden
            This quarter is so far my favorite when it comes to classes that I am taking. Today I got a chance to get all snazzy for a presentation on personal style and dress in my Style and Culture class. So what do I do? Why, I whip out my trusty six-inch Steve Madden "Killer Death Heels" (or so I like to call them). I'm already quite tall since I am 5'11", and these puppies made me a giant. Literally. But, who cares! I embrace my height. Anywho, I hope you all are having a wonderful May the Fourth!

And so we meet again...

Shirt, Shorts, Necklace: F21; Boots: Target; Sweater: Gifted; Head Scarf: Thrifted
               Well hello there! It has been exactly 24 days since I last posted (I know the precise number thanks to my friend Daniella who reprimanded me) and I am terribly, terribly sorry for that. I could say that I have spent my time being a studious college student, but the reality is that I have actually been enjoying the other end of college life: going out, being with friends, and living life. But do not fret! I am back, and so is spring. be prepared for a slew of warm-weather looks courtesy of yours truly. Au revoir!

Barely There

Dress: B.P.; Collar: Asos; Shoes: Borrowed
              And thus begins the last quarter of my freshman year of college. I can't believe my spring break is over already. Though my body may be here in Davis, my mind still floats around my hometown, imagining that I'm cuddled up with my sisters and my cat and a good book. Back to reality, I suppose.
