Found this image as I was going throughs some old photos.
Last Summer... going downtown. WOW I WAS TAN.
Which reminds me! Remember to wear sunscreen!
Anyway I will be returning to my normal blogging of inspiration and outfit this week! No more HIATUS!
One of the best things about living in California: Sunny weather almost all year round. AKA no FASHION LIMITS!!!
For example, as a design student in Dance and Theater at UCSB I can feel like my life is soososooo busy at times! The little things just slip away so fast.
This photo was taken on Sunday, my boyfriend Jeff and I were sun soaking as I waited for Jessica and Lindsay, and all i can say is i went to sleep that night full of happiness and meaning
When concentrating on what to wear:
remember it is not what you wear its how you wear. I know that sounds cliche. But its true! Boldness to have fun, try new things can only come from a sense of Grace and willingness! I may look like a fool, but at least i look graceful doing so!
I have little reminders that i like to give myself. one is often a written reminder to breathe on my wrist, the other is a red band that my boyfriend and i both wear, and the new one is the arm band, that really is a head band. My inspiration for this was actually grecian women from classic athenian imagry. I think new spins on the old are what being postmodern is all about!

Okay, I have been a slackerrrrrrrr. Luckily My Bestfran Jessica reminded me to keep on truckin:)
Which brings me to my biggest influence in style: FRIENDS!!!!
LoveloveLOVE Jessica's style! She is fearless in layers, and colors and does makeup like a rockstarrrrr. Because of her, I often remind myself to break fashion dos and don'ts and have fun! This girl has swagger and so can you!
Looks like a rockstar and is photo ready: For you what does that mean? Is it that vintage necklace you found in that awesome thrift store years ago? Is it that KILLER pair of Doc Martens? Finding a piece that just screams you and working with it is a great jumpstart.
Tonight I was on a date and was feeling very nostalgic and wanted to remember times of proper dress and manners ( silly right?)
So i dressed very Jane Austen inspired and had an empire dress. FELT like sitting up strait and enjoying a meal like a dance:)
