Forever 21 Top, Dailylook Cutoffs, Ebay Necklace, Acne Pistol Boots

Wandering around somewhat of an abandoned town with Texas Chainsaw vibes in what has been my ultimate summer uniform. You'll probably see more of these buttery soft Acne Pistols making their way into Fall.

Cracked Marble







Cameo The Cave Dress, Forever 21 Hat, Zara Heels, Backpack via Fashion District

Cameo is one of my favorite brands (more like any Australian brand) and this dress caught my eye because of the dreamy cracked marble print. I loved the discrepancy between the harshness of a cracked marble on a feminine flowy maxi. I threw on a backpack I found at the Fashion District for $20 and a concho hat to dress down the entire look and give it more of an urban edge.
Thank you maxi dresses with side slits for preventing all the contact I would've had with the floor from tripping over myself.

What's not to love about matching sets? They are the stylish cousin of the basic one piece and the easiest to wear. You don't always have to buy them as sets. I created my own with pieces that can easily transition from the unpredictable cool/hot weather we have here in California with a knit cover up.

I'm currently trying to clean out my closet and dreading it. I will be donating as well as selling/trading at Crossroads Trading. Check out their new mail in option and get a free selling bag with pre-paid postage here http://crossroadstrading.com/?sellbymail=1 
I know I'll definitely be using it when I don't have time to drop off my bags.

Celebrating summer spirits with tropical prints and watermelons. This outfit made me realize the convenience of rompers hence my current gravitation towards them. 
Wish I was looking out into a body of water surrounded by palm trees rather than a sea of buildings but this view isn't so bad either.

I partnered with Dahlia to show you how to style the adorable Carmen blouse three different ways.

Outfit #1: A plain blouse is like a blank canvas which means you can get creative with your accessorizing! I decided to tie a bow with a piece of fabric I had for a vintage look. I completed the retro school girl look with Jeffrey Campbell Tardy that I found from Crossroads and a boater hat.
Outfit #2: The blouse is oversized but still not long enough to wear on its own. I chose a dress that was slightly longer than the blouse and a laser cut hem so that it can peek out underneath.
Outfit #3: Probably my favorite look, I paired the blouse with denim cutoffs and thigh highs. The girly lace hem with the grungy platforms and thigh highs create the perfect balance.

Which one is your favorite look? Let me know in the comments and I would love to know how you would've styled this blouse differently :)
