ROUNDS.

Happy Saturday! I took some quick snaps right before I had to run errands because tomorrow morning I’ll be headed out of the country for a much needed vacation. This isn’t the most practical outfit for Target but whatever, I’ll try not to fall and eat shit (May the Shoe Gods protect me). Here’s a tip- when shopping in LA you kind of have to fix yourself up because you never know who you’re going to run into. C’mon, you don’t want to be looking all sort of haggard that’s just rude. Be kind and fix your face or wear sunglasses. I busted out my light wash flared jeans that I haven’t worn in forever. The 70’s vibe has been a popular trend so why not go with the flow? I paired it with a cute ribbed crop top because it’s blazing hot outside and my Quay round sunnies that go perfect with this look.

SHUTOUT TO…

August 27, 2015
DSC_9204…an amazing friend, Arnelle  Lozada. We met during a music video that we shot for Warm Brew’s A1 Day 1 featuring Racella (a soulful vocalist and extremely talented writer). We bonded over drinks and then, BOOM! Instantly became friends and formed a girl group, just kidding. I can’t sing to save my life. These days you come across so many talented creatives with super busy schedules. Arnelle does everything imaginable- her blog thisbeautifulife.com, the #EXPERIENCECPERIMENT, Youtube videos, photography, consulting, etc. Time is precious and I’m fortunate that she’s willing to help mentor me. So, thank you! I truly appreciate it and looking forward to all the cool shit that we have planned. Happy early birthday!

 

KEEP IT CASUAL.

There are days where I tone down my look. I can’t always wear shirts or shoes that say F*CK on them because it’s not always appropriate (supposedly). This is an outfit that I would wear to work because it’s more casual with a bit of an edge.  There are pants that rarely fit me well because I have a small waist and chicken legs but BDG’s Skinny Denim are perfect. They hug me in all the right places and they’re not too tight on my calves, which is mostly where I have the most trouble with denim. When I went shopping a few weeks ago my co-worker, Kathy, helped me pick out a cute cropped top with a vintage inspired print from Urban Outfitters. I paired it with my mom’s skinny belt that she wore back in the 80’s. The Brixton Messer fedora is a staple piece that everyone needs in their closet because it goes it almost everything along with a pair of Ray Ban clubmasters. My Bowie booties are from Nasty Gal’s Shoe Cult line and they’re really comfy believe it or not. To give this whole look a little bit of pop I wore Mac’s sin lipstick. It’s a great color for those who have darker completion, like me!

Special thanks to Arnelle Lozada from THISBEAUTIFULIFE.COM for helping me out because I’m super awkward, lol! She’s been a mentor/ older sister to me when it comes to all this blogging stuff.

BECAUSE PIZZA.

While shooting we got hungry and the easiest thing to order was pizza. When the box of deliciousness showed up at the door I remembered that I has a shirt from Lazy Oaf and though it would be cool if we did a few shots with it on. I threw on a pair of denim shorts because  you can’t go wrong with that pairing along with my Dr. Marten’s- easy peasy! I’m a fatass.. what can I say? I also devoured more than half of the box in case you wanted to know.

PLAY THE PART.

I’ve been having a small obsession with maxi dresses lately  because they’re so easy to wear and it’s something that you can dress up or dress down. Obviously this look it’s more casual. This knitted dress in particular caught my attention because the fabric had a really interesting heather effect. The armholes are cut really low which makes it a little sexy for some side boob action but in my case, no boob. The raw hem detail is a cool addition to the aesthetic and I like the fact that it doesn’t look intentional. You can’t go wrong with pairing a leather jacket with any long dress and the one that I have on has black hardware which I love. You don’t really see leather jackets with black hardware but it makes it so much easier to wear because you can interchange the color of your accessories depending on what your going to wear for the day. I wore a beanie to finish the look along with the tallest platforms that I had because the dress was really long.
