I went to Melrose the other day for the first time in a long time. (I have not excuse, living so close, but I just HATE finding parking!!) I happened upon Joyrich and was astounded by their new collaboration with Gerlan Jeans! I’m in loooovvveee!! If they had my size, I would’ve shelled out the moolah for a pencil print dress! (So I guess it’s good they didn’t have my size? haha) Across the street is a great store called Wild Style that Joyrich opened at the end of last year. It’s like a giant store of my dream closet! Super funky and crazy clothes that most people wouldn’t dare wear. This outfit today is slightly inspired by this funky style, although it’d definitely not even close to being completely bizarre.
Mint Chocolate Chip
I’m back from New York! It was hard not to buy everything in sight (although I admit I splurged!) SoHo was such a treasure chest, especially Top Shop, which thankfully is coming to Los Angeles soon! I browsed through some cool boutiques that had amazing unique pieces, which I couldn’t afford (but a girl can dream right?) One day I’ll be able to afford boutique designer pieces such as the likes of those from Opening Ceremony *sigh*
Anyway! Today’s outfit is entitled Mint Chocolate Chip because of the Mint x Black combo! I’m loving these new mint leopard shorts I got from Zara. The print is subtle but has great texture. I was debating whether or not to wear this sweater over my snake print top but I compromised by leaving the tail out sticking out behind me (you can kind of see it!) You can bet I’ll be wearing this shirt again soon though!

Thirty, Flirty, & Floral!
Today is my 30th outfit! (The title is a play off “30 Going on 30“‘s “Thirty Flirty & Thriving” quote, haha!) These pants are another steal from Goodwill! Then to even out the pattern I wore a plain collared shirt with a nice blazer to make my outfit work appropriate.Oh, and a ribbon around the collar is always a cute touch I love to do. And instead of buying them online for $15 bucks, just go to your local fabric/craft store and buy a bunch of different colored ribbon you like! Saves a ton of money and there are way more choices in patterns and colors! =)
Oh, and my shoes deserve to have a new paragraph, haha! I love these Messeca wedges with a fake gold heel! Really classy, although if any of you plan on getting them I would suggest you size a one to one and a half sizes down, they run so big! Still trying to figure that out…
I actually wore this outfit two days ago to a Dodger’s Baseball game! I’m not too much of a baseball fan but I’m a fan of my boyfriend so I was happy to attend with him! =) Last night we attended another event for this AMAZING podcast called Radiolab!
