Young & Baroque

(Daisy hairband- DIY/ $ Earrings- F21/ Jacket- La Lune Vintage/ Jeans- H&M)

For whatever reason my head is incredibly dizzy today, creating unbelievable writers block. You can see I keep using this bundle of daisies to accessorize. One might say I'm addicted. Maybe thats why my head is spinning- I'm having daisy withdrawals.

Five Things I Love Fridays.

I've decided to jump on the bandwagon. Dedicating a post each Friday to share some of my favorite things for the week.

1. Ice Lips by We Love. I've been listening to them, and this track in particular, all week. This is an unofficial music video, but I dig how artsy it is.

2. Love these lace crowns by Bitter Betty. Can't wait to make a few and wear them about town. A very DIY meets Dolce & Gabbana vibe. Get the tutorial here.

3. This Quinoa Tabbouleh salad recipe from The Vedge look so good. I haven't tried it yet, but will be at some point this week. It's vegan and gluten free, making it a great option for serving at a party or potluck.

4. I'm a regular reader of Oracle Fox blog, and the photos in this post are just a few of the many reasons why.

5. And finally, Drake Weather. Because why not have a side profile of Drakes face with my local weather behind it?

tie dye, astrology, urban outfitters, curly hair, high waist denim shorts

(Jacket- Borrowed from a friend/ Top- Urban Outfitters/ Earrings- F21/ Shorts- La Lune Vintage)

Lately I've been embracing my crazy curly hair. Not only do I feel it looks rad, but its so easy to do! I literally hop out of the shower, keep a towel over my hair turban style while I get ready for the day (eat, makeup, get dressed, etc.), then tousle my hair with my fingers to make it bigger. No room for uniformity in these curls! I try to avoid brushes and combs when going with this look, as they tend to turn my curls into a big floof, and I'm not tryin' to look all fluffy. Ya feel me?

It only feels natural to wear colors or bold prints when my hair is all in your face like this. I absolutely love this astrology chart tie dye number from urban. I stuck the daisies in my laces as an afterthought, inspired by Marc Jacobs himself. I keep finding random uses for these flowers, and I think its fun to add an unexpected element to an outfit. Any thoughts?

Pretty Things and the Root Chakra

Purchased a few pretty things at Forever 21 the other day. I've been especially in love with the hoop earrings, pictured above. I also have a thing for lightweight and lacy lingerie. For a special someone, you may ask? Nope, just decided to treat myself.

 On another note, I've been focusing on a healthy body, mind, and soul for the past year and a half or so now. I find this to be such an important part of life and want to share information with my readers. I have known about the chakras for sometime, but have often felt that the information I was reading about them was not only hard to relate to but hard to retain. I found this article on the Free People blog written in an informative and easy to read way. I encourage you to check it out, & learn more about your root chakra.

It's kind of hard not to feel sassy when you've paired a pair of khaki overalls with heels and a faux fur vest. (Or how about "vegan fur". I think I like that better. :p) So the bright red beanie proclaiming the mood with large in-your-face lettering across the front seemed entirely necessary. So let your sassy flag fly. Or sassy beanie, that is.

Inspo: Dries Van Noten S14

Really inspired by the pattern mixing seen at the Spring 2014 Dries Van Noten show. I still have yet to try pattern mixing in my own outfits. It's something I'm always meaning to do, but never seem quite ballsy enough to make happen. However that will change soon. Going to be laying out my patterned clothing to create some looks for you to see soon.

Kind of obsessed.


So I'm totally digging these items from Aupie. The past couple weeks I've had an absolute obsession with black & white. This is evident in most of the pieces I picked. I really love the clean lines of the top with the pink in it. I'm kind of in a style limbo though. Part of me wants my style to become more sophisticated and streamlined, while the other half still wants to be over the top and creative. So for the moment I'm trying to create a marriage of the two, and see how that works out for me. Besides- I'm only 22. I have plenty of time left for a more "grown-up" style

Looking back on 2013.

 Some of the looks I shot in 2013 with the intent to post-but never quite got to it. This year will be a new chapter. Prioritizing my blog more. And keeping up to date when I shoot. Would love to hear which of these looks is your favorite. Let me know in the comments. ;)
