(:

dirtiest hippy on the commune pageant

man i wish that was a real contest. the act of having a beauty/fashion/living and loving life blog seems to contradict my strong desire to be a dirty, farming, no make up wearing, pick up truck-driving, organic vegetable eating, living in a yurt, guitar-strumming, yoga-doing, kombucha-drinking hippy. people like that were my idols, my role models and my teachers growing up, maybe one day i will get to try it out.





ANYWAYS, my friends and i are doing a seaside vacation pt.2 in a couple of weeks and we're planning a HCNO, or hippy chick night out, similar to a GNO, girls night out, but themed and more hilarious. this is what i will be wearing.

the dress was a gift from my amazing friend Mara, and the shoes are from Urban Outfitters, gold hoops: target.

abandoned love





every time i see a photo of myself in this shirt i think, "wow that is not very flattering or cute, i should stop wearing it" and yet time and time again i find myself dressed in that damn flowery top. the print is the only thing i really like about it. i bought it 2 years ago for 3$ so naturally i haven't got my moneys worth yet (: it is about time to retire it forever i think.

i found this old map in the trunk of my friends car that belonged to the previous owner. i think it makes a pretty cool backdrop.
i feel like a Bratz doll

don't mess with texas.

im not a big fan of t-shirts. don't get me wrong some people can rock them, but being a curvier and more busty girl than most i find the average t-shirt terribly unflattering. this is roughly the process i go through when altering a shirt.
1.find a a shirt with an appealing design/color
2. make the first basic cuts.

3. put on the shirt and make the rest of the cuts (this is the only time i actually wear the shirt while cutting), this is the step where i make decisions about things such as strap thickness, what time of neckline and how low cut to make it.

tank tops such as these may not create a very polished look but they are comfortable, affordable, and unique.

.


this is one of my favorite ways to wear my hair but i hardly ever do. unfortunately i have layers and so different portions of my hair are always coming undone and poking out, my hair is also incredibly fine and straight so its a challenge just to keep it up in a bun for more than an hour. fishtail braids also takes a fair bit of time, and i am not a girl who can spend more than 3 minuets on my hair.

(i'm going through a black and white kick, the likes of which i haven't experienced since i was 12. don't hold it against me.)

a lady ain't what she wears but what she knows

today i threw on clothes and ran out of the house quickly in an effort to avoid the thunderstorms and pouring rain. no luck, but it was worth it when i got to the art supply store to get a new sketchbook. i thought i looked like a fool, but when i got home i decided i actually sort of liked what i was wearing.
hhahahahahahhahahahahahahah, i pull the weirdest faces around cameras.
no jewelry, few colors, nothing but mac msf natural and mascara. something a little different.

i wanna be forever young

kept it incredibly simple as today i was running around the city with my friend, checking out various thrift stores



bedding/towels aren't something i'd usually browse through at the thrift store but this commemorative dunkin donuts towel seemed like a solid 2 dollar purchase. i will no doubt be the classiest beach go-er for the rest of the summer.
