leotard time!

 I think leotards with high-wasited jeans or shorts looks SOOOO chic. For this look I styled my black shorts with a vintage leotard that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE (slightly inconvenient when you have to go to the bathroom but so cute that I can muster the strength to power through). I paired it with a pair of black cutout booties with bronze details (I didn’t get a photo but will try to insert one soon) and played up the black and bronze even further through all my jewelry! Prepare yourself for a heap of summer outfit ideas over the next couple weeks… they’re comin for ya!

Happy Summer to you all! Enjoy 🙂

sunny in san francisco

 

I’ve had a foreign exchange student from Germany for the past year, Felicia, and her family arrived last week to tour California before they all go back home 😦 But, on the upside, we all get to go on a bunch of road trips together! A few days ago, we hit the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and yesterday, we roamed around the beautiful streets of San Fransisco. We took them to do all the touristy things like walk on the Golden Gate Bridge, shop around Union Square, and see China Town and Little Italy! It was a tad windy near the water, but such an amazing and sunny day.

It’s usually a little too cold to get away with jean shorts when I visit SF, but with a sweater and my trusty jean jacket, I was just fine yesterday! I tend to want to dress a lil more urban in the city, but I still like remaining true to my style. I mixed my more laid-back boho pieces (the fringe sweater and DIYed shorts) and topped them with white, clean accessories (my favorite purse, snake patterned flats, and my SUPER COOL sunnies). To play on this combination of styles, I paired some modern silver rings with my vintage-looking ones. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE RINGS. I feel naked without them. I also wanted to exercise the jean on jean trend, and I think these washes go splendidly with one another.

Summertime is here! Which means endless freedom, sundresses, and sandals… three of the very best things. Urban Outfitters had a 30% off all dresses sale a couple of weeks ago, so of course I had to take advantage of it and got this cute lil off the shoulder piece. When throwing on a dress, it’s all about the accessories to make an outfit more interesting! I opted for my lace up sandals (a style I’m totally obsessed with and NEED to get more of), a necklace I made, a bunch of random bronze rings and a bracelet, and my favorite white purse! I threw up the top section of my hair into a messy, little ponytail and was good to go.
