After a few shots with my hair up, I realized I looked way too much like Olivia Palermo..

I wish I couldve worn this skirt to school today, but Urban Outfitters sells skirts that are just way too short for a 5’8 girl. Anyways, I love wearing booties with skirts. Im suddenly a big fan of pantyhose too. And this over-sized blazer is fab.

Free Tibet

Im absolutely in love with patchwork. Ive seen it on multiple runways and in different forms on different items of clothing and accessories. These pants are from Tibet. They have an abstract pattern with elephants. I love how theyre orange, because thats a color I dont wear or see around, clothing-wise, too often. This silver and turquoise bracelet is my new favorite. Its extremely beautiful.

Lace and Feathers

I feel like my clothing choices have been extremely bohemian lately. This look is a clash between bohemian and chic. The feather necklace, random bracelets, belt, and blazer are bohemian while the shorts, lace top, bag, and sandals are chic. 
San Francisco’s always so lively.

Wanna-be Hermes

This skirt totally reminded me of an Hermes scarf:

The skirt wraps around like a scarf. Paired with the lace detailing on the top, its so chic. I really like the back of the jacket, its adds a little flair to the look. Ive been getting into accessories and small details a lot lately. This ring is so beautiful, I love the opalescence. I bought this vintage belt in Haight Ashbury this past weekend. It goes with the skirt so well. 
Lately, Ive gravitated towards different pieces and looks. Im not such a huge fan of leather and studs anymore…which I thought would never happen. It might just be a phase, but Ive been liking more put together and reserved looks rather than insane colors and pieces. It may be that Im growing up or that my personality’s changing, Im not so sure.

I feel like a ballerina or tap dancer in this outfit. I adore this vintage geometric print dress with the pearl collar necklace. This look has a light angelic feel to it, especially with the sheer thigh highs. The dress has the same feel as this skater dress.

I adore these shoes. Theyre a sandal/oxford hybrid. They have the fringe like men’s shoes, but these are menswear-chic. The neckline on this top is great for a cameo. But the top as a whole, I hate. The material its made out of is so paper-like and balloons out making you look extremely pouffy. I bought it online, so I didnt know the fabric was this terrible. I love the print on the pants and especially the color. And I stole this hairstyle from Hannah on the Pretty Little Liars finale. Its a great hairstyle for dangling earrings because it really shows them off.
