And...We're Off!

I'm off to The Gorge Amphitheater to attend Sasquatch! music festival this weekend. Andrew, my roommate Sam, and I are taking a mini-road trip to Washington and I can't wait! There are sooo many bands playing that I've been dying to see live: The Lumineers, Imagine Dragons, The Tallest Man on Earth, Mumford & Sons, etc etc etc.

Chances are I won't be blogging (Not sure how I'm even going to charge my laptop? We are camping—I don't do so well with camping.) but follow me on Instagram because I'll definitely be taking lots of photos :)

Things have been a little crazy over here (per ushe) since I'm getting ready to go to away for the long weekend. Here's an outfit I wore to work last week: A simple peplum, colored cardigan, and jeans—nothing too fancy. This top is super comfy and stretchy and I love the criss-cross detailing in back! I usually can't pull off shirts with open back details because they always show my bra, but this one hits at just the right spots!

Happy Hump Day!

P.S. My banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe has been going a little viral on Pinterest! If you're looking to bake a healthy dessert, you can repin the recipe here :)

A Much-Needed Adventure

Pepperdine University, Malibu
These past few weeks have been crazy and after finally finishing all my midterm exams and projects, Andrew and I went on a (much-needed) Saturday adventure. I honestly couldn't tell you the last time we were able to spend the entire day together, but it was so nice! We started the day by taking a drive up PCH and had brunch at Marmalade Cafe. Then, we randomly decided to visit Pepperdine since we had both heard the campus was supposed to be amazing...and it certainly lived up to its reputation! I seriously don't know what it would be like to go to a school with that kind of ocean view, but I can definitely tell you I wouldn't get much studying done.

I decided to wear my tried and true Night-and-Day anthro dress because it always seems like the perfect dress for a Saturday adventure :) I paired it with my new acid wash denim jacket that I haven't taken off all week since I picked it up from work. I love how it still has a classic cut, but gives a little edge to anything I pair it with. I also wore my vintage Dooney that I found at a thrift shop near my apartment for $30! I was actually in shock when I found it since recently Dooney & Bourke has been reproducing their All-Weather Leather pieces for like $300+!

Anywaaaays, here is the point of this post in 10 words: I had a great weekend and wore things I like ♥
The. End.

Spring Outfit Idea
I wore this outfit for a book-signing event for Heirloom Modern that we threw last week at Anthro. I decided to test drive my new heels from Zara that purchased on an impulse after seeing this blog post my editor wrote a couple weeks ago (looks like our marketing is working—even on me!). Unfortunately, they gave my feet some major blisters, But I mean, I guess that's what I get for wearing new shoes for a 6-hour shift! Despite the fact that I was hobbling around by the end of the night, I love working events at my store. One of the biggest perks was all the mini cupcakes, whoopie pies, and macarons (food + clothes...what could be better!?) I was able to take home for me for all my roommates at the end of my shift :)

Because the event was a little dressy, I decided to wear this fancy blouse from Ruche, and layered a black camisole underneath to create a contrast against the lace organza design. Even though my outfit had dressy elements, it wasn't too fussy so it was perfect for work and definitely a combo I will be re-wearing in the future!

Come Sail Away

spring outfit idea
I wore this nautical outfit to a shift at work (although it could have just as easily worked for a little trip on my yacht, ha) and my co-workers appropriately called my t-shirt "vintage Anthro" since it's so old! It's crazy that I've been with the company so long that I can say things like that. It has been almost two years people! Where has the time gone!?

Anyway, this may be my only post for the week. This quarter is kicking my butt and between Anthro and my internship I'm easily working 30+ hours a week. Oh, and then there's school. So thaaaaat's what I've been up to lately. I'm pretty much on the verge of a nervous breakdown like 24/7 (just ask Andrew and my wonderful roommates) and counting down the days until summer. Even though I'll still be busy, it's going to be so nice to take a break from school.

Okay, off to study statistics (aka my favorite subject in the WORLD). Wish me luck!

Tried and True

Friday, May 3, 2013

Get the look:
I've been a little behind on blogging and definitely wore this outfit last Friday...better late than never I suppose! This is the first time I have worn this dress since I got back from Europe, and I couldn't find the right jacket to wear with it so I settled on my light denim jacket. The classic floral dress and denim jacket combo never seems to gets old for me. There are times when I go out of my way to try something "new" with my outfits, but sometimes it's just best to stick to what's tried and true.

Happy Friday!

Just Call Me Madeline

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Get the look:
I finally gave in to the peter pan collar trend! At first the style didn't appeal to me, but I loved the lace collar on this striped top so much that I couldn't resist! Anyway, something about this whole look makes me think of Madeline. Who read the books when they were little? They were seriously my favorite. Perhaps it was my childhood subconscious that helped put this outfit together :)

P.S. Happy May ♥ I seriously can't believe how quickly this quarter is going!
