I bought this dress at Animale, a store in Brasil. I actually think it's probably a nightgown, but I couldn't resist it. I just want my closet to be full of dresses that are flowy or airy and make me want to run in a field like this one or frolic in a forrest. I wore a vintage slip and tube bra from American Apparel underneath to conceal its see-throughness. I made the headband out of scraps from making this skirt.
Listening to: Flowers-The Rolling Stones. Favorite track: Let's Spend the Night Together. I feel like I blog with Stones records very often, but I wanted to find the perfect record to match this dress and I knew this was it right when I spotted it!
This week felt like it went by terribly slow, but it also feels like last weekend was just yesterday. Aside from hanging out with my friends earlier tonight, I am going to keep this weekend very relaxing!! I realized I haven't had any relaxing time alone since before my trip. I plan on spending the weekend finishing a dress that has been on my dress form unfinished for a couple months, a trip to Target to check out the new Zac Posen line, practicing guitar, and a take home trigonometry quiz. Sometimes it is just wonderful being boring.
You can find this on Chictopia here and Lookbook here. I also had my sister get a Lookbook which I am very excited about, you can find her's here!

Vintage skirt, American Apparel leotard, shoes from Urban. I wore this to Day at the Docks, which is basically a boating festival down at the bay. I bought a floppy hat, ate some calamari, and had a watermelon sno cone. I'd say it was pretty productive. It was also the perfect opportunity to wear this nautical skirt which I always forget I have. I bought this leotard for ballet last week but I want to wear it outside of dance everyday, which is better anyways because it gets double the wear!
Listening to: Avalon Sunset-Van Morrison. Favorite track: Contacting My Angel.

I cut my Dad's old shirt into a crop top for 80s day at my school a few weeks ago and ended up really liking it. I wore it with a vintage skirt, Diesel belt and vintage earrings. I also straightened my hair for the first time in forever and it feels so weird!

Some month-old pictures consisting of two of my favorite items from American Apparel and a random green hat I found in my house. The shirt is actually a dress, which is amazing and I feel like it's a different take on the classic little black dress.
Listening to: The Final Cut-Pink Floyd. Favorite track: Your Possible Pasts.
I'm going to check out the garden collection at h&m this weekend; way later than everyone else I feel like. Hopefully there's still some good stuff left, I have my eye on a couple floral dresses on the website that look like they would be perfect for frolicing barefoot in an open field of grass and flowers (something I have yet to find in San Diego)

American Apparel shirt, Totem skirt (Brasilian brand), hat I bought on the beach, glasses from an estate sale. I wish these were sunglasses and not just frames, but I couldn't resist the pink and purple and clear all in one (not really visible, which is too bad), for only $1!

An outfit even simpler than the last. I made this dress, though! It even has pockets which aren't really visible in the pictures, but I was quite pleased with myself for figuring out how to do that. I wear these sunglasses way too much; they are one of my only pairs, I really need to get some more!
