La Jolla


  These are the photos from my last trip to La Jolla 2 weeks ago. My sister left her camera here, so I had to wait to do this post. So, as you can see I love it here. The weather is awesome especially compared to how hot it is in norcal. Anyways, layering is the key to being fashionable during the warmer months.  Bohemian pieces, color, and contrasting prints are what Ill be wearing all summer long. I love clogs, and these are an unexpected play off the traditional clog. Theyre strappy and comfortable; great for the summer.

This Thursday Ill be flying to San Diego, then on Friday Ill be driving up to LA. My sister left her camera back in SD so once we get there Ill put up a picture post from the last time I was there (a week and a half ago). Saturday and Sunday Ill be at IMATS, so say hi if youre there! I will probably get a post up this weekend. Ill be vlogging at IMATS and will get that up on my YouTube as soon as I get home on Monday. Sorry for the delay, Ive just been extremely busy with a ton of classes, etc.


The Urban Fashion Gal

As Ive said before, transitioning between seasons is the toughest time to dress. Layering is key for looking fashion forward during spring. Here, I took the famous sequins blazer but in a shorter, lighter form kind of like a cover-up. Its a great trend but it’s toned down to bring into spring. I love mixing neutrals. The slightly blue suede heels with the taupe shorts is a combination thats super trendy this fall. With all of those neutrals, I needed a pop of color so I wore this bright teal t-shirt. Any bright colored t-shirt would work. Mixing different colored chains is also very trendy. So are huge Lady Gaga-esq rings. These Sam Edelman’s are really comfy even though they have a 4 inch heel because theyre a wedge. Wedges are a great option if youre looking for a comfortable heel. Theyre also chunky and edgy so they can be worn with shorts and still be in good taste.

80’s Purple


I recently came across this store, and I fell in love! Its like Urban Outfitters meets H&M; two of my favorite stores. Theres a bunch of edgy as well as floral, soft girly pieces. I absolutely love that gold costume dress. Model, Hanna Beth, wore it to last Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards.
