Shed Some Skin
Talk about heat wave! These are the days when I question weather or not Southern California supposedly has “perfect weather.” I’d rather travel through freezing cold Europe again than spend a day walking in the heat! ’Tis the perfect day to wear a crop top and my comfy snakeskin pants! I love that these pants have a bit of green in them so that pairing it with a light chiffon shirt really adds a bit of a color to what could be an all-nude/brown outfit.
All Choked Up
I really need to find myself a great belt for days when I feel a little more grunge. A trip to Hot Topic perhaps? (my favorite childhood shop! haha) But anyway, I’m loving my leopard print crop top. The fabric is really great quality and although you can’t tell in these photos, the neckline is faux leather. Sometimes it’s all in the details. Oh, and say hello to walkable black booties! HELLO!!!! =)

See You Later, Alligator
It’s been quite the week for me! Wasn’t feel too well at all, and then all work and no play this weekend! I have some catching up to do with posts! So this is an outfit I wore during the week. I’ve been looking for the perfect green blouse to match these alligator-esque pants I have. After quite the failed search, I realized I had this amazing green velveteen bodycon dress that I could double as a top if I folded it up a little for my pants to fit! haha. So alas, the perfect green top =)

I love all the mirrored prints that have been saturating clothes lately, especially those mirrored dresses! But most of the time I’m torn between thinking they look super cool or a little too messy… So this simplistic mirror-print blouse was perfect. Plus it’s got a cool ombre effect on top of it (but you can’t really tell since I tucked in my shirt, haha).

I am just crossing my fingers everyday for the heat to go away! Until then, it’s casual tshirts, shorts, and lounging in air-conditioned buildings. Hey Autumn, plan on arriving anytime soon?!

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!

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!!!

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)
