summertime christmas / bella canvas & levis

What month is it? March? July? October? Oh yeah, it's December but it feels like the 4th of July. Dressed appropriately for the warm weather in my new tissue jersey tee from Bella Canvas and favorite pair of Levis denim shorts. A pair of classic wayfarers and white converse kept me looking classic cool for a chill holiday at home. Brb gonna go eat more Christmas cookies and play mario cart with the sibs.

even I don't wake up looking like cindy crawford / 10th tribe

Been stalking 10th tribe on instagram for months now and finally got my hands on the "Crawford," AKA the softest, most perfect tank top. Ever, forever. 10th tribe's play on the jersey style trend pays homage to three iconic muses; Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss and Edie Sedgwick. They look like simple tanks from the front but cool girl back graphics add a little somethin-somethin. I paired the Crawford with my favorite suede leather skirt and tied a studded skinny belt into a knot round my waist. Threw my hair up into a messy top knot for maximum Crawford effect.

i'm in miami, b / south beach photo diary

Just got back from spending the weekend in Miami, sorry I've been MIA (pun intended) on the posting. Stayed in a killer suite at the W South Beach with my little mini-me sister babe, Adria. Ran around South Beach, caught a few rays and ate the best avocados of my life. It was the perfect way to celebrate the end of another intense semester. More photos up soon.

like white on denim / levis

Although dark denim is my all-time go to, I couldn't resist this amazing white denim jacket by Levis. So what better way to avoid studying for my last two final exams than by taking some pics instead?! The jacket is made of thin, stretchy denim and is detailed with pretty silver buttons. It's slightly cropped and is the perfect way to bring the light side to my seemingly goth girl closet. Please excuse my semi-wet hair and super attractive under eye circles; I can't remember the last time I slept for more than 4 hours.

sunglasses & advil, finals week is mad real / american eagle

Yesterday kicked off finals week (hashtag dead) soooooo I'm basically a sleep-deprived zombie. I've had my hair in a top knot for the past four days and in all honesty, it will probably stay up until my last exam on Friday. Although I'm putting zero effort into my hair this week, I refuse to succumb to the nationwide phenomenon that is the finals week uniform of sweats and a book store graphic. Instead, today I'm wearing a comfy baseball tee from American Eagle with my favorite suede leather skirt. Threw my Levis jacket on with a pair of gold accented sunnies for a look that's just as cool in the library as it is on the street.

wind chill / aritzia and remi & reid

Super casual TBT outfit post from last month when I was freezing my butt off in NYC. I refused to wear pants and subsequently had to suck it up and face the crazy windchill that made the, relatively nice, 47 degrees almost unbearable. Wearing this little swing dress underneath a heavier weight wool coat kept me toasty outside and cool enough to keep my coat on indoors. Messily wrapped my favorite scarf by Remi & Reid around my neck and threw my hair up because, as anyone with my haircut would tell you, bangs don't play nice in windy situations. Of course I had my "boot of the season" on all weekend along with a great pair of sheer black tights. Can I just be back in the city drinking my large coffee with soy at Dean & Deluca now?
