We love her quirky, 90s-inspired style, those Mary Janes, and her cool vibes.
"My favorite things to wear at the moment are Mary Janes. I'm in love with my cat Mary Janes and I wear them all the time."

out of sight, out of mind

Last year's Fourth of July was spent in New York, at the Statue of Liberty, so a completely patriotic outfit was required. This year, I spent the Fourth weekend at Laughlin with my family and it was about 500 degrees out, so I opted for thin fabrics and a lowkey patriotic color scheme instead.

This was taken just outside our hotel which overlooked the Colorado River. I (again) risked my life to sit on the edge thinking that the photos would turn out well. They didn't. But I had a great time at Laughlin, listening to 5SOS, taking photos on my brand new Instax camera, and just enjoying the gorgeous scenery. Summer's almost over so that means I have a litte over a month to squeeze in all that I wanted to do. Hope you're all enjoying your summer as well and let me know what you did to celebrate the Fourth! (:

Love always, A.

no place for promises here

If you've ever watched a certain movie about a man named Tom and his love interest, Summer, then this building probably looks very familiar to you. I mean, what better way to celebrate summer than by visiting one of the sites of 500 Days of Summer in downtown LA?

I've been going around DTLA a lot more often on weekends and I'm really loving it. Melissa and I went to Grand Central Market for brunch at Eggslut and ended up visiting the Bradbury Building and the Last Bookstore as well becaues both happened to be literally right around the corner from GCM. The only way to wear all black in the summer is to do it with some crochet and lace trim and very thin fabrics. Hope everyone is enjoying their summers as well & let me know what plans you have for the Fourth! (:

Love always, A.
