Mermaid Motel

Checking into find beauty from forgotten places and pieces has slowly become my favorite hobby. This abandoned motel and vintage haltered flared cotton mini dress have a story of their own, I’m just lucky enough to come across them both and give them a fresh start while Lana Del Rey’s “Mermaid Motel” keeps playing on replay in my head.

Rainy Day Blues

If you’re ready to wear flirty dresses but the rain keeps raining (literally) on your parade let me hear you say: HEEEYYYYYY! Rainy weather also translates to cuddle weather and well, I like to combine cuddles and dresses together by wearing short a-line dresses with oversized knits.

You don’t have to dress down to feel comfortable on rainy days, you can simply add soft textured layers on a basic colored dress.
What do you like to wear on rainy days?

If you’re like me, you know your wardrobe’s comfort is at it’s prime during warm weather and let me just tell you, this weather is finally starting to warm up (excuse me while I fill up with happiness inside) as I discover the importance of a warm sun again.
My winter consists of endless layers while spring and summer is made up of minimal basics.

6 Holiday Wants

6 Holiday Wants
The older I get, the smaller my Christmas List becomes. Maybe because I discovered that if Santa is going to come around only once a year, then I’m making it worth his trip and choosing wisely, instead of random things that I can get on my own year-round.

1. Herschel Supply Co. Little America backpack- for school and my random travels.
2. Pixie Market Hologram Platform Brogue- these shoes, le sigh.
3. Bell Jar- for the succulents in my room, besides how chic do they look in a jar?
4. Alder Dry Shampoo- I’ve read such great reviews on this product and a girl with 10lbs of hair could use some of this.
5. Leather Overalls- faux leather of course.
6. Crosley Record Player- It’s just about time I get one for my bedroom for those rainy days I just want to listen to The XX.
Now let’s hope Santa has caught up with our new need of publicizing everything on the internet and reads my wish list.
