oregon roadtrip

Now this post is a little late… I’ve been home for a while now but I thought I’d still share all of these photos from my fun lil family road trip (RV and everything) to Oregon! It was such a stunning place, and it was great experiencing nature and all the cute places up North. I didn’t focus too much on put-together-looking outfits, in part because we were living out of an RV for the week and practically camping, but the layered and laid-back looks I put together have stuck with me and shaped my fall outfits. I’ve basically just been throwing sweaters onto of shirts (with the shirts sticking out a bit) and layers on layers. So here are a fraction of the photos I took – of the beautiful outdoors, cute lil towns, delicious (vegan) food, and a bunch of shots of me living in denim… beginning with views from the back window on the road.

peace out Oregon, I miss your rainy days, but I’ll be back for sure.

a day in old sac

Decided to go on a little road trip with these cute friends of mine 🙂 We left behind our boring home town for the day and spent it walking up and down the old, planked sidewalks of Old Sacramento. There were so many adorable shops and way too many places to stop and take pictures, we just had to take advantage of it.

Never be scared to pair cream and white!!! With the mixture of textures, it can make for the perfect ensemble. I threw on these boyfriend jeans, a classic pair of Chelsea boots, and carried around this super cute backpack (definitely the cutest and most functional substitute for a purse EVER) to complete the outfit. Hope you all enjoy these photos from today!!!

rodeo drive

My family and I spent our last day in Los Angeles (window) shopping around Rodeo Drive. I loved seeing all of the beautiful designs that lined the racks of Dolce and Gabbana and Chanel… It was a completely different scenery from the one that I’m used to; it was SO fascinating and inspiring. We found our niche in the sale room of Lucky Brand; I ended up buying three pairs of jeans for a total of around $60 and a bunch of men’s graphic tees for only $10 each!!! Yep, you did NOT read that wrong…. Lucky Brand jeans for THAT cheap. (Maybe I’ll film a SoCal haul soon???) Needless to say, we spent a few hours rummaging through the shelves of discounted jeans. The rest of our time was spent admiring the designer store fronts and luxurious cars that filled the streets. I decided to throw together this sophisticated looking ensemble, something that looks expensive but it was actually VERYYY inexpensive. Check out the details below 🙂

pretty in pastels

I love getting out of town and experiencing another city for a little while. You get to escape from reality and the same old routines, and explore some place else. Switch things up and do something completely different from your daily life. Through out this week, I’m staying in Los Angeles and I’ll be uploading little posts and outfits each day for you all to see!

We went down to San Diego for the day to look at universities and it was DEATHLY hot and humid. So I put together this cute ensemble using the least clothes possible to dress for the weather. I ALSO decided to switch it up a little and actually wear color… something that I usually only ever do through olive greens and burgundys. You guys proud of me??? I think these pastel colors look insanely chic. It was something that I threw together not thinking I would like at first, but I ended up falling in love with the look! Hope you all can get some inspiration and enjoy the abundance of posts to come this week 🙂
