If the Rain Comes

It doesn't get much more basic than jeans and a tee shirt. Yet with a little help from a classic trench coat, a simple look can become quite the stylish outfit. It was really gloomy out and the sky threatened rain all day and although I'm completely ready for spring and all its wonderfulness, I jumped at the opportunity to wear my new trench before the weather turned to that blistering heat California is know for.
I'm finally on spring break which means a whole lot of shopping, sleeping, reading, and blogging with a few do-nothing-days. Not necessarily in that order however. Hope spring is treating you nicely!

The Natural Details

Gotta love when the puppy walks in on the picture. Here are some detail shots from yesterday's outfit. I was wearing a sweatshirt like jumper and denim shorts. Nothing fancy, just a lazy Thursday. I did however manage to make what would've been a boring outfit a little more stylish. Where would we be without accessories?

Happy Friday! The weekend is here!

Shoes: M.I.A.
Ring: Crossroads Trading Co
Earrings: Miscellaneous Shop in Santa Barbara


7 Things [I Love Right Now]

2. Hats- boaters and floppy ones alike

4. Backpacks (instead of bags)
5. Colorful Shorts
6. Leather detailed bracelets

All good for spring-all on my never ending list.

Outfit of the Day: Business as Usual

I seem to base most of my looks on business style. I live for structured outfits.
H&M: Shorts, Belt, Clutch
Apt 9: Blouse
Target:  Flats

I love shorts. If I had to, I could survive in shorts for the rest of my life. No pants, no skirts-just shorts. Maybe it's the free feeling you get when your legs are exposed. Knowing you can run, jump, skip, climb-anything. Or the comforts of being completely fuss free. My shorts used to be strictly denim but this S/S season I am beyond excited to dive into the more versatile side of shorts. Whether they are composed of delicate fabrics like lace and knit or dyed bright colors like yellow, pink, and blue you will (hopefully) be seeing them on me. Of course I will never leave my trusty denim cutoffs behind.
Today was one of the first days it's been warm enough to wear shorts (sans-tights) even though my legs are rather ghost-like. But what do you expect after being bundled up for months in jeans, pants, and tights. Even in California the weather can be brutal. In a previous post I mentioned the fact that these shorts will make a good transition piece and boy was I right! This is probably my favorite blouse; it’s defiantly in my top 10. I love the business-y vibe of a classy button up. This outfit sums up my "school uniform" nicely. Six in the morning is not the best time for me to get dressed, let alone be waking up. I am such a night owl. Simple top. Simple bottom. Simple shoes. (I go to like the one of the top 5 largest high schools in CA which means comfy shoes are a necessary  just for walking from class to class:) And simple accessories. Simple+Stylish= Happy Me. Of course I could never carry around such a little clutch at school. My bag weighs a bajillion pounds. It's a wonder I can even carry it!
How do you fit all the essentials into a small bag?



Outfit Of The Day: Navy Stripes

American Eagle Sweater, Gap Skirt, Vera Wang Tights, Target Flats

The first sign of SPRING!

A striped sweater and navy skirt. Both previously featured but appearing for the first time together today. I've been feeling the need to break free of my jeans that I have been wearing constantly seeing as how the weather can't make up it's mind between winter and spring. It wasn't quite warm enough to go barelegged, like I would've liked so I slipped on my trusty old black tights. (Note to self: pick up colorful shades for spring!) I think the navy stripes and the skirt matched a little too well. Nothing wrong with a little matching though. I've officially decided on all my classes for next year. *Senior Year Baby!* It's kinda scary to think that in a little over a year I'll be graduating and off to college. Scary yet soo exciting. Eeep! Well I'm off to do homework (so that I can make it to senior year) and so I'll leave you with these little words of happiness:
"The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself." ~Benjamin Franklin

Love this quote. I'm such a history nerd :)

Have a happy Wednesday!
