Yeah I know I've been talking lots of sh*t on the birk-revival. Well, this happened. And before you say anything, no, my transition to the  dark birk side wasn't thanks to Isabel Marant like everyone else has been claiming. Givenchy, b*tch. You know the jesus slide-sandal trend is real when Barneys starts selling O.G Birkenstocks in exclusive prints at 300 a pop. The only way, ONLY WAY, you will see me rocking this trend is if I magically win the lotto and can buy these Givenchy babies. Yeah, they're wanna be birks and kinda make me cringe and cry tears of joy simultaneously BUT look at the color ways!!! Oh, I'm sorry ROSE GOLD?! PYTHON? Sup, GOTH FLORAL?! Excuse me while I think of a great get-rich-quick scheme to buy every 850+  dollar pair. Before you think I've completely lost it, check em out for yourself. Even better (if possible) in person. Trust.

slide, baby

 Oh, and you better answer when I call trying to sell you life insurance...

I know I'm going to the polar opposite as far as my favorite (gothic) color scheme as of late, but stay with me on this one. This little crepe tee dress from Missguided is kinda the sh*t. Who knew white could be so cool??? You know those summer days when you wake up to thirty "are you almost here??!" texts because you're already twenty minutes late for brunch? Yeah, this is what you throw on for those "rare" occurrences when you literally have 4.5 minutes until your uber arrives. Here I paired the simple shift dress with classic sneakers to tone down any potential girly vibes. (don't want anyone thinking I'm feminine or something now...) What can I say, tomboy for life. Even in a little white dress.

If you've been following my blog/instagram/tumblr for any extended period of time you know how much I love leather. Jackets, bags, bralettes and my latest leather obsession: pull on, athletically-inspired shorts. This little pair of vegan leather "soccer shorts" by lovers + friends are my new favorite. Slouchy pockets with cool perforated detailing makes these the perfect alternative to denim cut offs for cooler summer days.

Stripes to signify the finish line are more than appropriate with finals this coming week. I've recently become weirdly super obsessed with skinny, horizontal stripes. Theres just something so effortlessly cool and chic at the same time when you see a chick wearing stripes. Blame it on my fascination with stereotypical portrayal of a chic french woman in stripes, a blunt chin-length bob and red lip stick. Or maybe it has something to do with the sleep-deprived, delirium I've been walking around in for the past two weeks. Between papers, group projects from hell and final exams next week; stripes have been looking hella great to me. Pair a looser fit striped top with low-slung cutoffs for simple, cali-girl cool vibes. The sweet little drawstring pouch, heeled sandal-bootie hybrid and light weight sunnies don't hurt either.

Huge thank you to Pat & Jessica at Private Party
Ayyyyy slouchy jeans, a simple button up and ankle booties. Yup, just a typical Rima Rama Sunday look. I'm in love with this new pair of "mum" jeans by Blank NYC. High waisted, slightly cropped and comfy as F.  I'll definitely be wearing these well into late summer paired with little lacey tanks. Is it weird that I'm kinda really looking forward to hot August evenings??
