LET'S TAKE A STROLL:



Third wheeling your parents is basically
the best thing ever...











Here's to a great and relaxed Spring Break! I took this week off school to do nothing but sleep, eat, catch up on my shows and repeat. Of course, I spent some time meeting up with my friends and spending way too much money on food (but hey, that's what the money's for right?).

My parent's and I decided to head over to Pasadena and visit one of my mom's favorite museums: Norton Simon Museum. This museum was a much needed destination both for its galleries and for its air-conditioned goodness. From Picasso to Manet to almost everything in between, this museum has a diverse collection of art that is sure to satisfy the aesthetic needs of many people. It even has a beautiful outdoor area where you can spot a few turtles swimming around and stop to smell the flowers on your stroll. 

How was your break spent? Let me know what you were up to and if you visited any good food spots that I can add to my list!

BEST DRESS EVER:


That moment when the perfect dress
becomes a beautiful addition to your closet...







Alright, alright so maybe I'm being a little bit dramatic...

But let me tell you something: it was fate, the meeting between this dress and me. I had recently been on the search for a well-fitting denim-like dress and lo and behold, one appeared right before my eyes. Well, actually my mom laid eyes on it first and told me to try it on. Fit. Like. A. Glove. 

It's actually quite difficult to find dresses that are the right length for me without it being too loose or too inappropriately short. So when this particular dress entered into my life, I had to say it was fate. Ending right above my knees, this article of clothing falls perfectly and is comfortable enough to spend a day shifting up and down and occasionally semi-squatting to take photos of my lovely friends (these were taken at Balboa Park in case you were wondering!).

Currently, this is my #1 favorite dress (as you can probably tell) and with its versatile style, I cannot wait to wear it in different looks for various occasions. 

What's your favorite look/article of clothing right now? Let me know all about it in the comments below!

BLACK SUMMER

Black Summer


The weather here in SoCal is seriously turning bipolar. Just last week, temperatures reached into the 90s, yet the winds have kicked in for an unprecedented chill for the past couple days. What's up with that? Summer is right at our heels and the sun barely manages to keep us warm and sustaining our "California" tan...

So, I've created this outfit set that manages to fit in to the cool, yet somehow sunny weather. This predominately black style allows the such as neon yellow and pastel pink to pop. Plus, the cropped top and the high-waisted skirt flaunts your curves (that may or may not be there; in my case: NOT). The flatforms keep you an inch or two off the ground and the clear-framed sunnies pull the entire ensemble together.
All in all, this look is very easy to pull off even in cooler weathers. Just throw on a black or even white cardigan if you can't embrace the lower temperatures or add on some black tights. 
Happy summer waiting!

Yours truly,

Rachel
