The Sweater Adventure

Sweater,Necklace, & Sunglasses-H&M
Nails-Polka Dots

I've previously stated, I believe, that I love this sweater. Well, it has also started acquiring nicknames. One of my brothers has decided it is a horse blanket (my other brother agreed). While some people might be offended, I love horses and therefore kinda like that nickname. I thought, I'll take it! However, my best friend is wonderful and told me she always thinks of it as my Star Wars sweater. Brilliant! Who doesn't want a Star Wars sweater they can wear in real life?! So from now on I'm calling it my Star Wars sweater. Thanks, Best Friend!

24 Hour Disneyland Adventure

Shirt & Jeans-AE
Headband-Forever 21

This is from a while ago. Leap Day to be exact! Disneyland was open for 24 hours! Went with siblings and we conquered staying up for 24 hours! Mental, I know. What to wear when you know that you'll be up forever and that it's extremely cold at night? Layers and comfort and Uggs. (guess that fits with comfort actually). They probably made all the difference in staying warm and not dying from being on my feet all day. Fantastic day and getting to see the Disneyland sunrise? Magical!

Dark Flowers Adventure

Jacket & Dress-H&M
Necklace-Forever 21

Hair-French braid down the side, then wrapped into a bun

When I'm out doing my job (in this case, costuming for a short film) I feel great when my outfit is cute, comfortable, and not sloppy. Some days it can't be helped if I know we are filming in a dirty location or I'm going to deal with dirt, oils, and other things. Can't be helped when I don't want to ruin my clothes. But this day of filming involved none of those. And therefore, I had fun dressing. What's that you say? Don't I usually have fun dressing? Caught me! Yes, I do. Can't help that either, actually.

Music Monday

Happy Monday everyone! I ended up having a crazy busy end of the week last week (including an 18 hour work day) So I'm starting this week out with pretty piano melodies and energizing beats. Let's have a good week, shall we?

Warm(ish) & Cool(ish) Adventure

Shirt-American Eagle
Skirt-gift (Gap, super old though)

Before it was completely cold, like it is right now, it was moderately cold and so my outfit reflect that. Like a tentative step into spring. Thankfully, I didn't jump fully in and pack away the winter clothes because I still need them. But thicker socks and long sleeves do a great job of keeping me warm and the skirt keeps it cool. The skirt is big on me. You noticed, did you? Easy solution, belt it! Done and done.

Green Night Adventure

Shirt, Bracelet, Necklace-H&M
Tank top-no idea (it's that old I can't remember)
Pants-American Rag, gift
Ring-Captain Jack Sparrow Ring, Disneyland
Shoes & Clutch-Target
Hair-Twisted at the crown into a little circlet.

I've been wearing this green shirt all the time at work and it's kind of surprising that it's the first time on the blog. It is such a beautiful green and went so well for the night out. My sister had an extra ticket to a performance by Paul McDonald, with special guest Nikki Reed. I enjoyed his music, having never really heard it before. I also enjoyed doing night makeup (I don't get to do that as often as I'd like) which equaled loads of eyeliner for the night (love!).

Music Monday

Time to share some more fantastic music by Kimbra. And bonus, the dancing throughout the video and her fun dress! End of story. Have fun!
Cameo Lover by Kimbra

PS. Double bonus if you see some "cameos" from two girls that were another one of Kimbra's videos.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I love my Irish heritage and have been listening to loads of Celtic tunes the past couple of days (thanks Pandora!). It always reminds me that I need to learn Irish dancing. I have to find a studio nearby...but I digress. Riverdance keeps popping up on the station. I was lucky enough to get to see the show when they were at the Pantages, brilliant! Since I've always loved Riverdance (even as a little girl) I thought it only appropriate to share it today. Enjoy!

Raspberry Stripes Adventure

Shirt-Express (gift)
Skirt and Bracelet-H&M
Necklace-Express (from a long time ago)
Tights & Boots-Target

Ok, confession: I love raspberry colored clothes! I may or may not have just discovered this. When paired with the black, it pops. (Logical but thought I'd write it anyways) Side note: tuxedo nails, are wonderful! They add a splash constant fun and happiness to everything I wear and everything I do. To sum it up, this outfit, while super simple, made me feel dressy and put-together. As we all know, I always enjoy that.

Springing Forward

Springing Forward

It's time to embrace Spring! This is just a peak into some things I found/really want for this spring. And the biggest key is that each of these items will transfer into summer and the rest of the year. Let's face it, it's just not as fun if you can only wear it a couple of times in one season. What are you looking forward to wearing this Spring?

Screening Night Three Adventure

Sweater & Tank top-American Eagle
Shoes-Christian Siriano for Payless
Blue Ring-Claire's
Black & Rose Ring & Belt-H&M
Soundtrack-Some Night by Fun.

Wore this for the third night of my film's showing at the film festival. Big surprise, I found another skirt I love! Not only is it cute and chic but it billows behind me beautifully when walking. Glorious! Since I went more formal on the other nights I wanted something fun and bright to celebrate the night. The blue ring went perfectly. This skirt will definitely be a favorite throughout spring and summer. Oh who am I joking? For the rest of the year!

Cozy Ballet Adventure

Sweater dress-American Eagle
Shoes-Christian Siriano for Payless
Soundtrack-Stanley Cooper by Alvin Band

I've just realized I'm a bit behind on my outfit postings. The outfit was from a couple weeks ago. Oh, well!
This was a day of running around all over LA from work meetings, to meeting with good friends, to an event at my university (why, yes, I did do an alumni event. fun!) And this skirt always does it's work without fail. I always feel so put together and girly (even though I wasn't always that way all day, I looked like it! In the words of Dark Helmet of Space Balls "Fooled you!") I also had compliments from strangers about the outfit and skirt. Love love for this skirt.
Also thanks to Meghan for being my photographer on a very late and cold night when we were very tired! Thank you!
