Raspberry


Summer style hack: find your old floral maxi dress from your grunge phase and tie it to the side for a sweet updated summer blouse.

Also I am currently obsessed with this clutch sent to me by the coolest UK company Daughter of Jon.


I'm probably going to carry this clutch around all summer so get ready to see it on my blog a ton. I love how clean cut and light weight it is. Not only that but Daughter of Jon is fair trade, which is so important. And they use sustainable fish leather! If any of you find yourselves in London in the near future, you can currently find this bag at the Topshop at Oxford Circus, or check out their website daughterofjon.com.

What's in my Bag: ASOS Collab

I got the opportunity to team up with ASOS for a classic "What's in my Bag?" post. I literally have always wanted to do one of these for whatever reason so when ASOS asked me if I would be interested I was pretty stoked. First off, I am in love with this bag they sent me. I was needing a good summer bag, and I'm all about this tote trend right now. Also I'm definitely the type that prepares for any extreme event anytime I leave the house, so its perfect for me to pack a ton of stuff. Also its white leather which is always a good idea. 


So these are the contents of my bag, which I consider more or less necessity: 
  1. A wallet (duh) 
  2. Keys (duh) which also have a swiss army knife on it which has been the most useful thing ever
  3. Sunglasses
  4. A notebook, because I always find myself randomly needed a piece of paper 
  5. Chocolate. Ok well this may be a lot nicer than what I normally have, but I almost always carry candy in my bag. There's nothing better than thinking "Wow I could really go for some chocolate right now. Good thing I have some!" 
  6. A mirror. This is actually my mom's old Chanel compact, which she gave me because all the powder is gone. Which is perfect because I keep Advil where the powder used to be. 
  7. Lipstick (duh) also this is the best lipstick ever. It's pretty subtle and super moisturizing, so its perfect for every day. This color is called Confident, if you're interested.
  8. A green juice, because I'm that kind of blogger (and it's called Pulp Fiction so) 
  9. Reading material. This magazine is so cool. It's directed toward women working in creative fields. And overall its just nicely put together. You can check out their website here
  10. Playing cards. I had a friend in high school that always carried playing cards with her, and sometimes there was nothing better than playing an impromptu game of Speed. So now I try to also carry them around, and haven't regretted it yet. 

*Not pictured: random receipts, food wrappers, probably a whole sandwich, my camera since I was using it to take pictures, and a little bit of sand.

Fever



How rad is this necklace?! The company WearLex sent it over to me, and for someone who typically does not wear too much jewelry, I'm obsessed. The length is perfect and for it being a huge stone pendant, its not uncomfortable. All her stuff is handmade, uses 14k gold, and is just amazing so go show her some love here!

I'm currently sitting in the calm before the storm. Summer for me is approaching, and I have so many great things coming my way but too many projects and research papers to conquer beforehand. But only about 3 more weeks until my hardest semester so far is done. I'm also really excited to announce that this summer I'll be interning with the amazing company 31 Bits!! (check out their website here) If you're not familiar with them, they are a jewelry company that employs women in Uganda to make their product. Not only am I in love with this company and their product, but I am so excited that my first real professional experience in the fashion industry will be at a place that is working to put good into the world. I have been so incredibly excited to learn from them, and I look forward to sharing my experiences as summer goes on!

Current Inspiration

As my semester of 18 units and minimal sleep begins to come to a close, I find myself having more time to reinvest in fashion again. My personal style as been kind of all over the place lately, so I've been finding myself attempting to define what my style is at the moment. So here are some images that I'm drawing a lot of inspiration from lately. All are from Pinterest.
