The dramatic destruction. As you can see, these jeans are completely torn up. We love how relaxed the look is, plus you get to show off extra summery skin.
The white denim. The clean white of the denim nicely balances the rugged destroyed details. It achieves that cool, artsy look without overdoing it.
The boyfriend fit. The always-chic borrowed-from-the-boys look is alive and well, and these jeans are no exception. The slouchy fit contributes to that casual style we know you’ll wear all summer long.
This weekend Clare, Will and I went to our local tea shop to catch up. The three of us have very busy lives, and as graduation approaches the opportunities for us to spend time together are limited. With the help of Will’s amazing camera work, I got a great OOTD pic of myself and Clare.
I hope everyone’s finishing the year strong and getting excited for summer like I am.
Hey, y’all! School is finally coming to an end, Advanced Placement (AP) exams are over and I can almost taste summer. One AP class I took this year was Studio Art. Art has always held a place in my heart and I’d love to share that part of myself with you lovelies.
This art class gave me complete and total freedom, and really allowed me to explore more as an artist. I’m not sure how Studio Art classes work at your school, but if you’re also passionate about art, I definitely recommend taking the AP class.
Here’s a glimpse of my 2D portfolio—GIF style!
If any of you have a blog or tumblr or Instagram account where you post your art, comment below! I’d love to check it out.
Hey, guys! So summer is upon us, and although it’s amazing to not have school for a whole three months, let’s face it: summer can get boring. For a busy bee like me, having nothing to do and very few commitments just isn’t my thing. That’s why I’ll be showing you some stuff to do when you’re bored this summer!
Having a day…actually, many days…where you lay out by the pool and relax is always a must. But, of course, you have to have some supes adorable pool toys while doing it, right?
My bestie, Sam, and I couldn’t get enough of this donut floatie. It looked seriously good enough to eat, haha!
And here is Sam, happy as can be, on a giant floating pretzel. I think we can all agree that anything food related is instantly 10 times better.
Nothing beats the feeling of a nice, cold pool on a hot day. Just remember to apply sunscreen—ALWAYS—especially if you think you might doze of while adrift in the pool. Hey, better safe than sorry.
Stay tuned for more ideas of what to do when you’re bored!
I love mixing girly pieces with sneakers. Here I took a flowy tank that has slits up the sides and tucked it in to show off the ruffle detail on the sides of my shorts. To add that sporty factor I like so much, I finished the look with my Nike Roshes.
Happy Memorial Day! This holiday weekend means that summer break is ridiculously close—what better way to get into the summer spirit than by swimsuit shopping? If you’re heading to any beautiful beaches this summer, or planning on hitting the pool, one thing’s for sure: You need a new swimsuit.
Here are five of my favorite swim pieces out right now:
1. I’m usually shy about prints. I almost always stick with solid colors. But for some reason, I was attracted to this subtle tie-dye print and actually fell in love with the mandala print on the reverse side. Did I mention that it’s reversible? Win. Win.
2. And now for the solid colors. How cute is this bright pink bikini? It’s simple with little details like that tiny cut-out on the back, and it comes in two more pretty summer colors if pink ain’t ya thing.
3. I love everything about this top. The higher neck and cropped style is different than your average triangle bikini top, and the criss-cross strap at the back is pretty cute, too. And that baby turquoise color just screams summer.
5. This last bikini top is nothing crazy, but it just happens to be my favorite. That’s probably because it’s black. I think every girl needs a simple black top to mix and match with printed or plain bottoms. Also, the wrap style adds an athletic-inspired touch.
Spring weather in Portland is very iffy. It can be sunny for days, then start to rain for days on end. Since the weather isn’t very reliable, it’s a good idea be ready for anything. I paired jeans with a flowy tank top for warm afternoons, then threw on an oversized cardigan in case of damp and chill.
