HALLUCINATION







After spending the week in Disney with Queen Lindsey + her crew, I learned a couple of things. That one can't truly experience the place fully until they've taken photos in front of 'The Purple Wall' in Tomorrowland (certainly an offer I'd never pass up considering my literal job for this blog is to scout cool backgrounds), and that one should always expect random fireworks going off throughout the day (is this bad/good for the environment.. since they do them like 3 times every 12 hours!?) Ironically, I also learned not to let my skepticism get the best of me. 
So there we are, in Tomorrowland, having a little photoshoot against this purple wall, with onlookers staring and occasionally stopping, asking if Lindsey and I wanted photos together... and then, out of no where, popping sounds fly from the top of the castle, and they turn out to be fireworks in mid-morning, at thatgoing off for a show. I guess I shouldn't have been so surprised, but I also guess that I didn't expect this place to be so... unexpected a quality that I've always held so valuable when it comes to certain places in the world that I love (my top reason for loving NYC so much, after all). But I was happy to find out that it is just as unexpected as I like.. and that was surprisingly, impressive.

For my last day, I sported a go-to summer outfit of mine, this adorable striped Brandy Melville shirt paired with these nude shorts I got ages ago that are unbranded (seriously, a mystery I've been trying to solve forever). Then, I popped on my clear backpack, decked out in some cute pins I purchased at Pacsun, and a Hipstapatch, nevertheless. I decided to finish off the look with my Adidas, a cute choker tie from Eterie, and a pink Walmart bandana... talk about unexpected...

ANTHRACITE






When it comes to summer fashion, the easiest way to make a statement without having to pack on too many layers is to mix patterns and textures. If you've followed my blog for a while, you'll know that this is one of my favorite things to do with almost any outfit, but I thought this post was a perfect example of doing this in a manner that gets the job done in a subtle way.

 I started with this cute off the shoulder top from Pacsun(I think it's actually from the Kendall + Kylie collection as well). Lately I've been LOVING off-the-shoulder topsmostly because they add a ton of swag to every outfit, but also because they're that perfect kind of in-between piece for summer into fall. Next, I added this white bandana around my neck to add a new dimension and pattern, but also to bring out the white in the top and mix it a up a bit. Finally, these UO cut-offs added the perfect denim texture and of course, I finished off the look with my Superstar Originals white Adidas.  (Also, check that cool elephant henna from Epcot Morocco.. it means good luck, and you can even watch me get it here!!! (; )

As bright Apollo's lute, strung with his hair: 
And when Love speaks, the voice of all the gods 
Makes heaven drowsy with the harmony."

Cheers, xxoxo
