This is a look I wore on Monday:
“Mondays are grunge days. They’re long and hard with the whole rest of the week ahead… so I just want to lounge around in a tshirt, jeans, and a soft flannel shirt. Is it silly that I just like the colors and design of this shirt? Everyone keeps asking me if I’m a fan but truth be told I don’t even recall any of there songs… shameful. My coworker is a huge fan and right as I walked in she goes, “Is that G&R?” and I had no clue what she was talking about until I realized I was wearing my Guns n Roses tee, haha.”

Bow Ties ARE Cool
I had such a busy (but fun!) weekend! My friends and I had a craft day yesterday and made studded shorts & I painted a galaxy shirt to match my shoes, I’m excited to wear it! So this outfit was what I wore last weekend for a little nerd session with my best friend Emily. We spent part of the day watching one of my favorite shows—Doctor Who! This is a printed Tee I did during the American Apparel fall flea market where you could print any design you wanted on a shirt! My boyfriend drew a TARDIS for me and voila, a fashionably cut Doctor Who shirt! Haha =) If any of you guys watch the show you’ll know that the latest Doctor, played by Matt Smith, wears a bow tie!

I always feel like I’m supposed to be slightly more proper or slightly softer spoken when wearing pastels,haha. I love wearing lavender and mint! My favorite color combo for sure! Even my lips are lavender today! =) I haven’t worn this chiffon bolero in so long… it’s from a Japanese brand I’ve been obsessed with (for years) called Angelic Pretty. Japanese street fashion is one of god’s gift to mankind—seriously! haha.
I took some photos without my glasses since I think it fits the outfit more but I also took some with my glasses because I feel like I look so odd without them… like my face is missing a body part, haha.

Rebel With A Job
AHH!!! Work has been soooooo crazy lately! I apologize, it’s been getting harder and harder to plan outfits lately. Work has been slightly overwhelming and stressful. The beginning of my week consisted of pretty professional business casual clothing because I was having a bunch of meetings so after all of that, all I wanted to do was rebel a little and wear some 90s grunge rock inspired stuff. Most of what I’m wearing is from Goodwill + DIY! I love plaid, hence the plaid shirt and plaid shoes! What do you think about the 90s grunge rock look? Do you miss Kurt Cobain and Pink-Haired Gwen Stefani? I gotta say, some styles in the 90s were a definite no no, but 90s rockers had great style!

What’s better than flower headbands, rainbow skirts, skeleton tshirts, and studded vests? Nothing! I’ve been dying to show off this beautiful skirt I got some time ago as well as this studded vest I made with an old jean jacket from Goodwill. Sorry my hair is hiding most of the studs, haha. It was a fun project though and it saves so much money, I suggest everyone try it instead of spending $100+ on a studded jacket. Goodwill jacket + studs = No more than $20!

Sunny Skies & Floral Pastures
What’s this “festival look” that all these online stores are defining? Has this always been a thing and I just didn’t get the memo until this year? And can I wear a “festival look” when there are no festivals going on? I’m just going to have a festival at my workplace then! So I finally made the floral headband I’ve been dreaming about. It’s so big and loud and poofy and I love it! The blue matches perfectly with this patterned blazer I got in one of my Goodwill finds (it has a matching shirt and skirt too, oh my!) I didn’t want blue to overtake the entire outfit though… so I threw in some yellow lipstick! I’m really loving the OCC lip tars lately! The best part about them is that they don’t taste like lipstick! Am I the only person who HATES the taste of normal lipstick? FYI if you’re like me and are trying to find not so gross tasting lipstick I would get OCC lip tars or NARS lipsticks / jumbo lip pencils. I swear by these two brands’ lip products =)

Paint it Black
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, whether you celebrate Easter or not! It was my amazing-stupendous-handsome boyfriend’s birthday this weekend (he takes the pictures for this blog!) so we celebrated by going to the Aquarium of the Pacific. It was so wonderful! I’d forgotten how AMAZING some tropic fish are and how CUTE sea otters are!! It was also my amazing-stupendous-beautiful best friend Emily’s birthday as well! I got to visit her new house (fit for a queen! with an elevator and theater!) and we hand painted galaxy-print shoes! I’m pretty proud of mine and I’m so excited to wear them!!!
Shoes from Target painted with puffy paints!
I had blonde hair for about two years before I decided to grow it out again. Even though I loved it, my hair was getting way too damaged and the upkeep was such a handful! Thank goodness growing out my roots is kind of trendy right now… haha, how ironic!
But anyways… my point being I never wore any black clothes because I felt like it clashed with my light hair (I know, doesn’t make too much sense) but now I love black! And I love this dark plum lipstick I got from NARS. It looks black but if you look closely there is a touch of color. It kind of gives off a vamp-vibe, haha.

(Wow, how do I always end up wearing a whole outfit from one store?? Makes me look lame, haha)
