This is what playing catch-up looks like.

(Dress - H&M Conscious Collection, cuffs - Forever 21, shoes - Jeffrey Campbell Cuffed)

I like to tell myself that I've been so busy with school that I have been neglecting my blog. Whether or not that is true is another story...Anyway, a lot of deadlines to meet!

The H&M dress I purchased along with another skirt from the Conscious Collection, but I'm not completely sold on it. I do like the party in the back, but the somewhat-high neckline in the front doesn't appeal to me as much. Hm. I do like the contrasts, though!

The bracelets I churned out at work yesterday. Things you do to pass time when there's no one there...;) No worries, that's not ALL I do at work! I do work, I promise!!

Rose gardens.

Hello! Just thought I'd post a few outtakes of my "photoshoot" with a friend who graciously allowed me to post her pictures here. :) I decked her out in some of the things that I'm going to be selling (ehehe...look out for that soon) and it was quite fun! The park was so pretty and it was a great getaway from our usual (sub)urban environment.

I'm trying to improve my skills, so this is somewhat of an experiment. The rose photos are my favorites.

Hope you're enjoying your day! Thank you for reading, as always <3

Let the music play.













(Leather Sleeve jacket - Zara, Colourblock jumper - Gap, pants - Forever 21, boots - Steve Madden, bag - Vintage, jewelry - necklaces from Etsy/Melrose and bracelet from friend)

Yet another photo spam of food and surroundings. Tried out the Umami Burger in Costa Mesa since they opened one there! We ordered everything but the traditional burger. ;)

Oh...I found this leather sleeve jacket I've been drooling over on the Zara website in store. It was a bit pricey, but my friends did not let me leave it. What a good decision. I think I'm going to wear it every day from now on...

It's shoe-time.



Clockwise from top - Jeffrey Campbell Clinic Stud, Plomo Simona, Unif Hellraiser, Dr. Martens 1460 Women's, Jeffrey Campbell Damsel, Black Milk X Jeffrey Campbell Damsel, Dr. Martens, Jeffrey Campbell Edea)

As a shoe addict (sort of...I guess) I ask you: How on earth are you supposed to refrain from buying new shoes when they keep coming out with awesome ones?! I don't know.

It's so BRIGHT.













(DIY scarf dress from vintage scarves, belt - H&M, platforms - Urban Outfitters, headband - handmade by friend's sister!)

Wow, what a photospam. :) I thought I'd go for an impromptu photoshoot with my friend today, and these are the pictures that resulted from it! The only bad thing is...it's so bright. It was really sunny. My eyes hurt and I am sorry if it hurts yours too!

This is a scarf dress I made from some vintage scarves I got...I love it so much! It flutters in the wind and the colours make me happy. I should probably make more.

It was beach weather today so I hope to make my way to the shore sometime soon, providing that I finish all my work (I haven't touched that yet...). Eep.

Enjoy your Easter weekend! <3

whoops.



I've been shamefully neglecting posting new stuff...sorry! It's spring break for me and I have yet to do what I told myself I'd do. That list consisted of something like:

1. Catch up on reading and all schoolwork
2. Create things

I've yet to fully do both. Why am I so reluctant to start them, anyway? I digress.

Oh, I've dyed my hair red again! Don't be surprised when you see it in future photos. Speaking of photos, please enjoy this picture of a flower cluster I took on a walk. I must be productive!

shot me out of the sky.









(Shirt- DIY dip-dye, shorts - Urban Outfitters, tights - Nordstrom, wedges - Jeffrey Campbell)

It seems like I name my blog post titles after songs! It just happens when I have a song stuck in my head and it sounds cool. :)

Another adventure of sorts...it was finally not too cold to visit the beach! We've been meaning to go for ages but it was either too windy, too cold, or both. The only bad thing about the sun is that my photos look really washed out, but I guess that's just a minor thing compared to staying warm.

I didn't know what to wear yesterday (imagine that..) so I just wore the shirt I dip-dyed as an afterthought. I didn't want the dye to go to waste, so..there it is. Oh, and the shorts are one of the three I said I went crazy and bought! I can't wait to wear it without tights :)

There are soooo many things I have to post here! I guess I better get to it.

Hope you have a lovely day!
