Schoolgirl Feelings

Top: Tildon (also worn here), Skirt: H&M (also worn here), Necklace: Xevana, Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell  |  Photos by Carl Mahoney

My skater skirt strikes again! I love the scuba-suit neoprene and the way it flounces as I move. It's probably my favorite H&M purchase to date! Naturally, I paired it with this sheer button-up and stockings for the classic schoolgirl look. If you have been following my blog, you would know that I literally live in my Xevana necklace--it goes with everything! Or perhaps I just wear it with everything? Embrace who you are and do as you please: That's the beauty of personal style!

I'm not sure why I'm drawn to juxtaposing a pretty outfit against a run-down place. Yet here I am once again exploring dark and desolate areas. I thought it would be interesting to switch it up and do a nighttime shoot. The darkness adds a cinematic touch, wouldn't you agree?

It's that time to reload on my caffeine. I hope you all are having a fantastic week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Champagne Wishes

I'm baaaaaack! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. My brother was visiting from Philadelphia and it seemed like we were on a never-ending quest to soak up the sun and devour all the food in Nor Cal (Northern California). I'd say it was a success :)

Let's get back to this outfit, shall we? :) I styled this look starting with these champagne jogger pants. I always start with a statement piece and style around it so my outfit doesn't look turn out so busy. 

Grey, light blue and champagne; isn't it a pretty color palette? The denim top and champagne pants go so well together, but I added the hat for an urban flair. I'd say the hat also tones down the dressy pants, and makes this look more casual. I finished the look the with these killer holographic heels from Steve Madden, which I've been wearing with almost everything. I'm kind of extreme like that :)

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! Thanks a bunch for reading!

Wedding Dresses by Oh My Honey

Oh My Honey "Lily" and "Rosa" dress

 I tried to keep calm as my petticoat filled the skirt of my dress. My fingertips brushed the embellishments as I tiptoed through the sand, heels slinging in hand. The sea was glistening, and it felt like my dress was shining in unison—the feeling was enchanting.

 Here's me skipping about for British designer Louise O'Mahony, shot by the ever so talented Carl Mahoney. Louise was traveling through the US and I had such an amazing experience collaborating during her stay in San Francisco.

 The two wedding dresses I wore are from her 50's inspired label--aren't they gorgeous! I absolutely loved the quality of the lace and the fancy details.

 We passed by a large family of tourists and they applauded my bridal moment LOL. A mother and toddler also approached us on the beach and handed me a sparkly pink tiara, "She thinks you're a princess and wants to say hi." How adorable is that? A bride should feel like a princess, and these dresses certainly achieved that effect.

 Carl made a great blog post about the different capture media he used for this shoot, which can be found here

 Louise also designs couture wear and these dresses will seriously blow you away. You can find her couture and 50's-inspired labels here.

 I was a flower child exploring barefoot in two gorgeous dresses. What a day. Have a lovely night and thanks for reading! :)

City Chic

Blazer: BCBG, Top: Hanes, Shorts: Brandy Melville, Hat: Cheap Monday, Necklace: Xevana

   In the past couple of weeks, I gained a newfound love for the city of San Francisco. Sometimes where there's familiarity, you forget to stop and smell the roses. The sun's going down and the fog is lit by the city lights. It's a mellow evening for photographer Adot White to capture this city chick in my laid back look.

   One thing I love to do is to juxtapose casual and formal elements. I'm wearing a plain grey T-shirt with denim shorts and a leather baseball cap--all casual pieces, and dressed them up with a blazer and this incredible statement necklace for the perfect balance of cool and casual.
