SUNDRESS SKATEBOARDING

I went skateboarding the other day in a sundress. Turns out, it's not as hard as it looks.

PHOTOBOOTH OUTFIT SHOTS

As you all probably know at this point, I'm in college now (actually only two weeks away from finishing my first year) and that means I no longer have my mom and brother to take outfit photos of me. Time to get creative. Here are some low-quality shots of my outfits from the past two days.


t-shirt from havana, cuba
skirt is vintage


tank top from reformation
pants from american apparel (r.i.p)
jacket from acne studios
pins are vintage, from penpals, and from the whitney museum

THREE OUTFITS: LA, NYC, NJ

I took a couple of (bad) photos of my outfits over the past week, and I thought I'd share. I went to an LA-themed party on Thursday night, so I brought out my "Los Angeles" nameplate necklace and the most streetwear top I had. Necklace from Topshop, shirt from Gosha Rubchinsky, jacket from Levi's.


On Friday night I went to the Whitney Biennial. I wore a Drowners t-shirt, a jacket from Reformation, some vintage pins, my Mansur Gavriel bag, vintage Levi's, and Gucci loafers.


Over the weekend, I went to see family in New Jersey for Easter. I wore this dress from Motel Rocks that's the perfect a-line cute.

DENIM ON DENIM FOR BACCHANAL (outfit of the day)

Yesterday was Columbia University's spring concert, also knows as Bacchanal, and I decided to wear denim on denim for the unusually sunny day.


Top from Purrr Melrose
Vintage 501 Jeans from Levi's
Vintage Jacket from Levi's
Shoes from Vagabond


Didn't take the best photos, but I did have a great day. There were festival vibes all around - it made me miss Coachella just a tiny bit,

SUNNY DAYS IN THE CITY

We're finally emerging out of winter her in New York City, and I couldn't be happier. Here are some photos I've taken on the intermittent sunny days we've been blessed with. Coming from Los Angeles, you really do not know what you've got until it's gone.
