back in LA

Jeffrey Cambell shoes   thrifted zara blazer   forever21 collar  Low Luv x Erin Wasson ring   Alice + Olivia Tank

I always get extremely nostalgic whenever I go to LA. I spent my first year of college living here and made so many friends that I will never forget. Los Angeles has this weird pull to it. Sometimes I don't want to be anywhere near the crazy condensed traffic, polluted airs and rooms filled with bluffers. Yet, other times the feel of the city lights and that gravitating pull towards the "la la" of it all makes me want to stay forever. These photos are taken right off Wilshire Blvd as me and John waited to meet up with some of our friends. I am wearing this perfectly tailored Zara blazer which I found at my favorite thrift store (Beacons) in new york last year. Some of the "studs" on the collar have fallen off and I haven't really gotten down to fix it. Looking at these photos I realize I should probably do that sooner than later since I can never resist a black blazer with a good structure. Lately my go-to when feeling lazy.

vintage sunglasses / foreign exchange mens jacket / Sweet 1985 necklace/ H&M pants

I've teamed up with Sweet 1985 and put together a little giveaway for you! Afterall, If it weren't for my readers, I would have no motivation to blog. I guess it's no surprise I would chose this bullet skull necklace for the giveaway. A great accessory for any kind of girl. If you are more of a girly girl, then this little piece will add the perfect amount of edge to your look. If one tiny skull isn't enough for your bad ass self then mix it up with other pieces to get a good layered effect. I could go both ways, but I just love the statement it makes when worn with nothing obstructing it's beauty. Just follow the steps below to enter.

A couple shots from this and last month. The weather has been beautiful and ugly at the same time. So it's been fun being able to wear all different types of outfits for different weather. That's what I love most about winter here... you never get bored. 
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

im with the band ...

Forever 21 shirt and necklace / Asos fedora / Kelsi Dagger shoes
Photos by John Smith and me 

This is one of the many Beatles tees that I have floating around my closet. Anytime I see a cheap one that has a cute cut I have to have it. Mostly because within six months it will be old, worn-out and soon thrown out.  Today my look just screamed california style from head to toe. Band t-shirt ? check. Zero hassle cross body bag? check. Comfortably lazy black leggings ? check. Statement hat to top off the outfit and be too cool for school? check. All I am missing is probably crazy amounts of jewelry stacked up to my elbows that really isn't even comfortable to wear but somehow looks awesome. But.. I'm digging the chokers as of late so I am enjoying going almost naked in the jewelry department to give even more emphasis to the necklace. This one is nice and simple which I found last season at forever21. These photos were taken today while on our sinful ways to the truffle shop. Ready to indulge in some chocolatey truffle goodness.. MMmmmm.

Obsessing over this big beautiful couch at a local coffee shop during an afternoon of coffee and girltalk with one of my closest friends. I wish I could just take it home with me. My outfit was kinda loud this day, I guess I was feeling a bit funky and bold. Wearing my favorite oversized kimono with lace up grey Charles David boots over a bodycon Max Studio dress.

home decor inspiration

I don't know if I mentioned it already, and with so much going on it's hard to keep track of my thoughts, but I just got a new apartment and all I can think about is how to decorate it (hence me procrastinating posting photos of my dream home, instead of doing my homework). It's a tiny space so there isn't much that can be done. I could only dream of having a place as big as the rooms you see in the photos above. Until now all I have is a big white couch, (looked for a leather one all over the place but couldn't find a decent one) and a black cowhide rug. I am not a good interior decorator though so we will see how it comes together once I get all the finishing touches. All I know is that I want my place to resemble my personal unique style. I've been juggling school and moving out so it's taking a lot longer than I would like but as soon as I am settled I will post a couple photos up.

the printed blazer

Escada Blazer / Zara shorts / Macario Jimenez bralette top / chanel purse / JC shoes
photos by John Smith

This blazer brings the perfect amount of color in the dead of winter. Although, it really doesn't feel like winter at all here in San Diego. I love how the right print can make any casual look become instantly interesting. I kept the rest of the look simple and balanced out the loud print with my high waisted shorts and white bralette (designed by a well known Mexican designer I once interned for, Macario Jimenez).
I honestly would have never thought to wear such a bright, loud print especially for a blazer. I saw this look for the first time on my girl Karen (this girl has the most badass style) from Where Did You Get That and realized how insanely awesome it looked.
