Currently Crushing On...

There are a couple things I'm currently obsessed with, and I figured I'd share them here!  My new favorite color, music I'm crushing on, and more!

1. The Tiffany blue/turquoise - I am LOVING this color.  And not just because it's the color associated with beautiful jewelry.  I've found myself buying all sorts of things in this romantic, tropical hue (it probably has something to do with it feeling like summer in Cali).  This color looks rad with my blonde hair, pale skin, and makes my eyes all glowy :)  I've recently bought a tee, a scarf, and gotten my nails done in the color.  Yeah, I'm kind of obsessed.

2. Iggy Azalea - Maybe I'm a little late to the love fest regarding Iggy Azalea, but her song "Work" has got me hooked.  This girl is suuuper talented - her badass vibe mixed with an amazing fashion sense make her one of my favorite grrls.  Check out the video for "Work" below and visit her website here!

3. Big Headbands - Another spring trend I'm digging is ginormous headbands embellished with fun stuff.  I've always liked headbands/bows/semi-obnoxious headwear - it's sassy and kawaii and full of personality.  These are a few that I've been wearing lately:

4. Lena Dunham - I've loved this girl since the first episode of Girls aired.  She's been bucking feminine stereotypes left and right since she stepped on to the scene, and Girls is fu**ing AMAZING.  I'll have a separate article about Girls sometime soon, but for now I just wanted to share my obsession with Lena Dunham and her quirky fashion sense, unapologetic personality, and her ability to capture the chaos and craziness of today's young adults.

5. My Film Cameras - In college I minored in Photography, and several nights a week I could be found in my school's dark room developing photos until 4 am (this was after my party phase, when I decided I could be way more productive at 4 AM and way less drunk).  After I graduated, I no longer had access to a dark room, so I started using my digital camera (and my iPhone) more and my film cameras less.  But when I was back in Texas earlier this month, I dug through my closet, found my old cameras, and brought them back with me to LA.  I'm so excited to start shooting with them again - and if anyone in LA knows of a darkroom I can use, we can have an art party till 4 AM!

Sweatpants and Sass

Happy Wednesday everyone! I've been working on a post about my experiences as a teenage girl, and I was hoping to get it posted today, but I want to do a photo spread to accompany the text and it's taking me a bit longer than I thought!

So instead, I decided to do a style post centered on one of my all time favorite articles of clothing: SWEATPANTS!

Yes, it's true, I LOVE sweats/pajama pants.  I like being comfy but, mostly, I just think sweats and casual pants can be super adorable.  I love buying sweats in fun colors, unique shapes, and with funky patterns.  Then, if I want to wear them out and about, I pair them with a top that's either dressy or punk-rock, throw on my cowboy boots or heels, and wander around LA in comfy, chic style.

Sweatpants get such a bad rep...lazy, tacky, sloppy.  But anything can look sloppy if you don't take the time to add a splash of your own personality or put in a little bit of effort.  One of my favorite things to do is style my hair all fabulously, throw on my sweat pants, and embrace the fun juxtaposition of dressed up vs. dressed down.

More days than not I wear a pair of sweatpants (I have A LOT of them), and find new ways to fancify them!

This mini photo shoot features one of my newest pairs - I got them in the sale room at Anthropology (loooove) and I adore the turquoise color, the unique print, and how cozy and flowy they are!

So, seriously, don't be afraid to wear sweatpants.  Add some pretty jewelry, an elaborate hair-do, or a pair of outrageous shoes and look stylish and feel comfortable!
