We'll be so good...

I'm so ready for this school year to be over. I have a class starting in a bit but I decided I like you guys better. I have a little something to show you all.
This past weekend, Veronica and I went around looking for new thrift stores and had a ball. I was a little bummed I didn't get to go home this weekend but it's okay. We found this thrift store with this amazing garden I just had to take pictures. I also had to work but I love my job, new laughs every day. I just hang out with really great people all the time, it's awesome. Smiles.
I decided I would show you my new babies that I ordered from Topshop a while ago. Yes I got me some jelly sandals and they're amazing. They're by the UK brand JuJu. You can get em at other places too. I think Asos and American Apparel have them. I walked all day in them so of course my feet kinda hurt at the end of the night but if you don't do that, they're just perfect. I even wore them without socks which I was afraid of at first but it was fine. I love them. They're so sparkly and they make me feel a little girly, which I'm definitely not, almost 90% of the time.

Anyway, I hope your Memorial Day weekend was grand.
Love you all. xo

You make me glow...

This week has been weird. Has this week been weird to you? I don't know. Maybe it's because I spent this last weekend at home and I'm still recovering. I just want it to be the weekend already.
So I basically hung out with my family all weekend and had a grand old time just chilling. I missed home a ton so it was good going back for a little. 

It was nice being back especially because I'm actually staying in Santa Cruz this summer until I graduate next year. Yay! I just found out yesterday that the place that we wanted just approved us and I'm super stoked on that. It's really exciting to actually move into a new place by yourself that's not on campus or your parents' house ya know. I can't wait. Smiles.

Besides being stoked about all about that good stuff, I think just being in a new environment will be good for me. I'll definitely miss a bunch of people from Monrovia but I think meeting new people is great. This might be too much info but I've said worse on this blog before, I mean I think. Save for a few people, my friends suck. I don't know if "friends" is even the right word anymore. I can't wait to see who will actually take the time to visit me over the summer. I can't wait for summer.
But anyway, not going to bring you down. This is a good thing. Smiles.
Oh and I promise to try and blog more often. xo

By the way, no judging, but I'm kind of obsessed with this song. Sang it all weekend with my sister.

I don't care, I love it...

Hello!
I know it's been a while, but I'm still reeling about the Met Ball. They kinda chose the best theme ever don't you think? I was so into a lot of the looks from the event. The Met Gala is so fun because it's basically a fashion show where over-the-top doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing. It's great and this was perfect. Here are my top picks of the night. 

Anne Hathaway in vintage Valentino
Okay can we talk about this newly blonde bombshell and how she was absolutely perfect? I love the Debbie Harry-ness of it all and that dress was smokin' hot. She just looked amazing, I was really surprised that she was so into the punk theme this year.

Alexa Chung in Erdem
Not the most punk look out of the bunch but it was her take on punk and I appreciate that. I really love the way this looks on her and she stuck to her own style, which is great.

Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture
I never can decide on pictures of her in a dress because there are always multiple things going on with her dress. This dress is killer but in a soft way just like her. It's a very girly dress but the back and the zipper detail punked it up.

Kristen Stewart in Stella McCartney
So best beauty of the night goes to this babe here in my opinion. That makeup was so perfect, and the hair, oh my god. She has a lot of hair but somehow it disappeared and I was like huh? She has great face for this look. I did love the red and the no jewelry at all and the lace detail on the suit but what can you do about Stella and oversized pants? Eh. Very surprised since I half-expected her to come in a super fancy leather jacket and a ripped band shirt. 

Cara Delevingne in Burberry Prorsum
My babe in the spikes. If I can count on anyone to follow this theme correctly it's Cara. Enough said. She looked so punk pretty that I don't even know how she does it. That deep neckline with the perfect necklaces to accent it, just perfection.

Sienna Miller in Burberry Prorsum
My other babe in the spikes. Her outfit was what I was expecting to see a lot of when I first heard about the punk theme. Surprisingly, just my two Brits here decided that spikes and dresses were a good idea. And I thank God for them! I'm completely obsessed with everything about her with this look. It was slightly lazy like she just threw it on and I couldn't handle myself. The dress hung a little messy, her jacket sleeves almost went past her hands, her hair seemed not done but it was all so great. And that spiked headband oof get in, I want. Who knew Burberry could be so punk?

Some updates for you:
- I'm going home this coming weekend and I'm super stoked. I didn't get to hang out with my mom yesterday so I'm excited to see her.
- I apologize for the lack of outfit posts, I haven't had the inspiration recently. It's been hot so I've just been throwing dresses on. If you want to see what I'm up to, hit up my Instagram.
- Just saw the line-up for FYF and I am so down.
- Oh and a pretty little bird wants me to do a Great Gatsby style post. I'm still thinking about it, hopefully I can figure out how to actually do that. Fingers crossed. Smiles.
See you soon. xo
