I bought this hat from an unauthorized online seller because there’s no need to contribute to Trump and his agenda. The only place a Trump supporter should exist is as a joke on Halloween. #shadethrown

I know, I know being inspired by Kylie Jenner goes against everything I stand for but I’ll hand it to her, she has good style. (Or maybe it’s her stylist Monica Rose…yes, she has one of those). In contrast, my bottoms are looser and my top is tight and I don’t have one of those fluffy key chains. Those were cool in like 2011, when I had one…just sayin’. I like the nude effect this body suit gives off. It’s a shame American Apparel is probably going out of business.

Today was the second day of school and I’m already swamped. 20 units won’t be easy–wish me luck!

Shy Wilder

Street wear/festival inspired look featuring this crop top courtesy of Shy Wilder. I like this top because it’s a basic piece with a little flair–perfect for summer. The embroidered shorts pretty much scream festival/summer style. All I need to throw this outfit into cliché central would be a floral crown (lolz make them stop plz).

Coachella Weekend One

Coachella was amazing but Lollapalooza wins. I feel like way too many people were at Coachella because it’s “hip” and they wanted cool photos. There was too much pressure to dress unique/trendy. I literally wore a t-shirt, shorts and docs everyday at Lolla. I’m all about dressing on trend and taking pictures (duh) but this was one of those times that I would’ve just liked to listen to the music and take it all in.
PSA: do not wear sandals at these things. Docs are hot and sweaty, yeah, but they don’t peel the skin off your toes (TMI, but necessary to information to know). Seriously. Even Birkenstocks weren’t comfortable. 
People advised me against wearing metal jewelry but I didn’t have any issues with it. I chose a cross body over a backpack because when you’re in a big crowd it’s easy for someone to steal something from a backpack. 
I stayed at the J.W. Marriott with some friends and we took the shuttle. Because of this, we weren’t able to go back and forth from the hotel to the event (it was about a 20 minute drive–not worth it). The nice thing about Lolla was that I stayed at a hotel within walking distance.

These two casual looks embody what I usually wear to class: Nikes or Docs, tees, bracelets and a tote. I like how soft this Civil Clothing t-shirt is–and it’s a fun play on the typical “lips” tee. I wear my Nike frees outside of the gym because it makes my outfits effortlessly chic and it’s unexpected. 

The second look is so comfortable. I love me some dungarees. I took off a strap so you could see the tee and well, because that’s how I usually wear my overalls (which are perfect for spring!). But I keep true to my usual style and add edgy elements to spring attire–which is why I like this t-shirt and the Civil Clothing brand itself.

Bangerz Tour: LA

I can’t even put into words how amazing Miley was last night. The visuals made the experience even more entertaining. She’s an artist. I’m reeling. I’m also losing my voice from screaming so much.

I have non transferable, non refundable tickets to the Oakland show tomorrow. I was planning on flying up to see her once more (better seats) but unfortunately I have an economics quiz…. school>concerts? Ughhhhh.

Quilted

Quilted pieces: I’m a tad late on this one but better late than never, right? I saw a top like this at Zara a few months back but they didn’t have my size. I then came across this dupe at H&M and snagged it immediately. It’s a spring friendly piece so I chose it instead of this little number from ASOS (even though that skirt is fabulous). 
Oh and my answer to dressing down every look: Doc Martens.

Multicolored Denim on Denim

It’s almost spring and that means I have to trade in my layers for shorts and tanks…but there’s a few weeks left. Here’s a look I styled with shorts from Civil Clothing’s spring collection. I’m all about denim on denim–especially when it’s multicolored denim. These shorts are tiny so I styled them with some tights underneath. A look like this can be rocked day or night. 

Miley Concert on Saturday EEEP! I literally cannot wait. Have you seen her on the cover of W Magazine?! So perf.

Whitney Eve/ASOS Brand Ambassador

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you’ve seen that I’ve started interning at Whitney Eve…aka dream internship. It’s nothing like a stereotypical internship. We’re encouraged to contribute on whatever we want and we don’t go on coffee runs. My title is “Social Media Intern” and I’ve been working on some fun little stuff the past few weeks that I can’t wait to share. 
In other news, I recently found out that I (along with two others) are the official USC ASOS Brand Ambassadors. Basically the coolest thing ever because I shop at ASOS on the regular. We get to give away free ASOS products and hold events with other organizations on campus. 
This “dress” is detachable–something I’ve never seen before. I decided to wear it with a pair of doc’s because as an intern, even though I might want to wear heels and be all fancy/professional, if they’re not required…I won’t do it. I learned this the hard way. Plus the docs make the dress less grandma and more…#punk.

Meetings and Finals

Winter break is so close I can’t deal. While I’m wrapping up one semester I’m simultaneously getting ready for next semester in terms of internships and classes. As a second semester sophomore I should have a grasp on what I want to do after college…today I found out that a certain fashion magazine I want to write for pays their writers about 24k a year. And that isn’t even an entry level salary. Public school teachers make more… Anyway, I’m just having another one of my existential crises, nbd. I think about this stuff and freak out and then get over it like every other week. 

This skirt is very Alexander Wang-y and sort of matches too much with the top but it’s a perfect combination for a meeting: trendy yet not experimental. I’m also obsessed with quilted leather–it’s a unique accent on this otherwise plain coat.
