New Basics

Jacket- Ebay, Shirt- Zara, Pants- Urban Outfitters, Shoes- ASOS
I present to you what is probably the best outfit to depict my current style aesthetic. My friends describe my current look as "very European", as I grow a sudden distaste for any color but black and most accessories, besides maybe my watch and pearl earrings. But most importantly is my leather jacket, which has basically become my second skin.

These pictures were taken in Italy but I'm back in California now. If I learned anything from being abroad it's how great California is. Never have I been so happy to be home. I still have a few more pictures from Italy to post on here since I'm terrible at being a consistent blogger. Maybe I'll add keeping up with this blog to my New Year's resolutions? Or do resolutions ultimately just end up in failure?

Boy Meets Girl

      I shot and styled these photos for a final project in my fashion photography class. Even though the concept of experimenting with gender and clothing is nothing new, it's something I've been really interested in and wanted to explore for myself. I don't consider myself much of a photographer, so I'm really really happy with the results. However, I'm not down with the blogger photo quality. Now I get why so many people complain about it.

Schoolboy Scum

Blazer- Vintage Versace, Shirt- Thrifted, Shoes- T.U.K.
Oh this blazer. It was love at first sight. Versace for only €35? How could I have said no. The fit and color and everything about it is perfect (minus the thrift store smell) so it couldn't have been anything but destiny for me to own this.

Literally Obsessed: King Krule

So maybe I'm late with this whole King Krule thing (maybe not). Either way, the past few weeks I've been in a music rut and finally decided to check this guy out after hearing him mentioned a few different places. Not only is his music fantastic, but he overall just has this really great vibe that I'm totally into at the moment. I mean if he gets his own blog post he must be good, right?

Top- Flea Market, Jeans- ASOS, Shoes- T.U.K.
I've gotten to this point where I'm just over accessories. While I used to be into layer necklaces and covering my hands in rings, these day a pin is enough to suffice. I've noticed my taste becoming more and more minimalistic and honestly I really like it. 

I have 6 weeks left in Italy. I thought I would be posting more about my experiences, but everything has become so routine here that I don't feel like I don't have much to say. Italy is definitely a cool place, but I find myself missing California more than ever. I mean sometimes I just really want a California Burrito, is that so bad? 

Also, I hope everyone had a creepy Halloween. I decided to dress up as Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction because my hair was perfect for it. Gotta seize the opportunity, ya know? Here's a picture of my costume.

Halloween Playlist Because Why Not

      Since Halloween is my favorite holiday, I decided to make a playlist to help get me in the spirit and thought I would share. It's some of my favorite bands, and just some generally good creepy songs. So maybe have a listen? Or not. It's really fine either way.

Flowers and Pleats

Skirt- Vintage, Top- Asos
I was listening to french music and feeling nostalgic for summer, which works out perfectly because these pictures are from summer. Speaking of french music, did I mention I'm going to Paris in November?
