I fly through my mind, I take the way I've known...

Sometimes I forget about hobbies, this weird thing humans do when they happen to get break from life and being adults.
I recently had a chat with one of my bests from high school and we both are in that place where all we feel like we're doing is working and sleeping and it's something I do not like at all. I've realized (with a little help and a nudge from a loved one and just thinking about where I am right now) that I need a hobby that's not related to things I do on the daily. I consider blogging a hobby, even though I may not do it often. Also wearing what I wear and taking the time to choose certain outfits and taking photos of them I also consider a hobby. But again, these are things I do every day. For work I'm on a computer 8-9 hours a day which can get old after a while, which is why blogging has been getting put on the back burner even though I very much enjoy doing it.
I've been writing a lot and thinking about things to post on here about, even if they may not be style related. A wonderful YouTuber I happen to be best friends with (and miss very much) said in a video that writing everything down no matter how silly is a great way to stay yourself even though everything outside of that is chaos. 
 So a couple weeks ago, I did two fun things and had amazing days because I was doing things I enjoyed. The honey and I went on our first trip to Disney together and it was magical and all kinds of awesome. That one is self-explanatory, I cannot wait to go again.
That same week, I did an art thing, which I have not done since my birthday in January. Sometimes I forget why I chose to be an art history major in college so reminders of that really make me happy. My sister and I took a trip to Silver Lake to see what everyone and their mother have been taking photos of since April. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I went a little cray in taking photos of Projection by artist Vincent Lamouroux. Basically, he took a dilapidated motel, lovingly called "The Bates Motel" on Sunset and covered it entirely in a whitewash, including the palm trees. And of course, it has attracted lost of attention as anything new does in Los Angeles. It's a great disruption and contrast of the way we see things and also a cool backdrop for my photos. I loved that we got to see it when it was gloomy out.

Let's be clear, won't close my eyes...

My sister and I trekked it to Hollywood two weeks ago for a fashion history lesson. And it was free which is always a plus.
We went to see the "Louis Vuitton Series 2 - Past, Present, and Future" exhibit in LA which I thought was pretty great. It was a multi-room exhibit that kinda went through Louis Vuitton's Spring 2015 ready to wear collection. It was all multimedia as well with making of an LV bag videos, inspirational women to the collection, a minimal room that only featured accessories as the focal point, and a "backstage" area that recreates backstage at a fashion show so every room was something different and I felt it was all super nontraditional, something I was expecting from this particular exhibition.
The whole thing lets you walk through at your own pace and even go back if you want to see something again. Every docent was very nice and told us multiple times we were allowed to take photos, which of course I did. I heard it's going to Beijing next. 
This happened all before I got sick and icky and just wanted to chill out for a couple weeks.

Sun was shining, I'm positive...


I recently went to Monrovia with my sister to have lunch with our parents and of course it was a good time. We walked around my hometown and took pictures duh. It's always nice having a set schedule for work so I have the time to hang out with my amazing people. I mean I had a set schedule at my last job but it didn't feel that way to me for some reason. Recently I've been having more energy and drive to do things on my days off which is great otherwise they would be wasted and that's not very good. This is what I wore to lunch, a classic outfit, just a blouse and denim shorts, with some new twists. I can go back into the archives and find versions of this exact outfit which is really funny. I still can't believe I got away with wearing this in January. LA weather for you.

Stay up 'til the lights go out...

I haven't done an Inspiration Wednesday in a while so I thought I would start the year off with what I'm really into currently.


It's more of the usual if you follow me on Instagram, but with a color twist. I feel like it's really hard for me to step away from my clothing comfort zone which is pretty much black. I see images like these and outfits where I'm just like "Oh my word, gimme" but I don't have that drive to put my wanting into practice, or else I might go broke.
The funny thing is that grey, blue, and white are not even a huge jump away from black. They're still kind of neutrals, the way I see them, but more icy which I love. Great colors for the winter to spring transition I'm already feeling here in LA. Still trying to wear my fur jackets in 70 degree weather like a doofus though.
