Slayher






Sunglasses; Cole Haan via Nordstrom Rack | Shirt and shorts; UNIF | Boots; Nifty Thrifty | Lipstick; MAC Pure Heroine

So, I'm pretty behind on posting some looks I photographed months ago now. These sunglasses are some of my favorite. Originally $130, got them for $30, hell yeah! Gotta love the deals at Nordstrom Rack. If you guys couldn't tell, I have a serious obsession with UNIF. Yeah. These vintage leather boots I got from Nifty Thrifty, and I absolutely love them. I've been wearing them more often than not since I got them. Took a few times to break them in, but now that I have, they're perfect!

What's new with you guys? Got Halloween plans?

Record Inspiration



Jacket and bralette; UNIF | Shorts; Bad Vibes via Tunnel Vision ; Necklace; Forever 21 | Lipstick; MAC's "Pure Heroine"

I shot these with one of my good friends Demi a couple weeks ago. We pulled inspiration from a few different sources to create these images. For those of you who know me, you know that music has always been a huge part of my life. So we pulled inspiration from that and ran with it. I love how these came out. In case you guys are wondering, here's the bands of the records pictures: WhirrThe Chain Gang of 1974Mansions, and Joseph Arthur. All records that I love. Whirr's "Sway" is the newest to the collection, and it's a great one. The Chain Gang of 1974's "Wayward Fire" isn't a new release, but it's still one of my favorites. The Mansions record is actually a test press of their album "Dig Up The Dead" that I won a few years ago. Then Joseph Arthur, a record I picked up while in Portland, because why not buy records while in Portland, am I right?
Life has been busy, but good lately. Keeping busy with school, work, and the boy. I have been missing my best friend pretty bad though. Come back from Arizona already, Megan!

Hope you all are well.

Cropped Angles






Sandals; Urban Outfitters | Crop top; The Laundry Room | Shorts; DIY | Ring; Vanessa Mooney

Angles are deceiving. I'm not as tall as I look here (sometimes I wish I was, haha). But, this gray crop and the black lipstick have become my new favorite combo. I think I need to invest in some more gray shirts now. Also, I'm pretty stoked with how long my hair is getting. This is the longest it's been in years!! Let's see how much longer I can keep up with it before it becomes too much for me, haha.

See ya!

Ultima



So, I made my music video debut a couple months ago (only a couple seconds, I know, but still!). Thanks to Joe Calixto and State Faults for allowing me to be a part of this. P.S. - That garage with the basketball hoop above it? Definitely my house. 

Check out State Faults' video for "Ultima" below!

Champagne Supernova

I apologize for the lull in blogging, life has been pretty busy with school and work. I took a couple summer classes, which were pretty intense but fun! I'm so proud of myself, I got a 4.0 GPA for my summer semester. It's such a nice feeling, considering this was my first semester back in college after five years. Ya girl's still got it. These photos have to have been from at least a month ago now. I miss Megan. She's currently living in Arizona, and a long distance friendship with your best friend is kind of hard. 
As you can probably tell, I can't get enough of Bad Vibes and their rad shorts. I have three pairs now, these ones are the Champagne Supernova color way. So gorgeous, and the most comfortable. And yeah, literally the only makeup I'm wearing in these photos is mascara. A bit different, eh?
How are things with all of you?

You Complete Me(ss)













Tank; UNIF | Shorts; Bad Vibes via Tunnel Vision | Kimono; The Laundry Room | Ring; Vanessa Mooney | Shoes; Urban Outfitters | Lipstick; Revlon "Black Cherry"

After falling in love with my purple crush Bad Vibes shorts, I had to get more. I ended up buying both the Prismatic (ones worn here) and the Champagne Supernova ones (they're gold and gorgeous, but we'll save those for another day). Pretty much, the combination of Bad Vibes shorts and Unif tees have been my summer wardrobe essentials. 
Tomorrow I have my first exam in my summer bio class, so I should get off to studying. 
Hope you all are doing well!

Triple Threat








Dress; Forever 21 | Boots; Kohl's

About a month ago now, I was reunited with my friend Mariaya, who moved back to Washington about a year ago. It was so good to see her again! While she was here, she took these photos of me and the rest of the triple threat... Her, Megan, and myself. I miss you Mariaya.

So life has gotten super busy. I went back to college. Yes, during summer. I'm taking two summer classes, so with those, homework, studying, and my job at the zoo on the weekends, I've been a pretty busy lady. I must say though, it feels good to be going back to school, especially now that I know what I want to do; Marine biology.

Hope you all have been well!
