I have driven the same route for 9 years (middle school, high school, all of my jobs), and every time I am surprised by the magnificence of that view. Now that I live in the East bay during the week and do not drive my car along these familiar streets, the view is an even bigger burst of surprise. I can drive these streets with my eyes closed. Sometimes I speed through the narrow Club dr. road just because I can. Sometimes I drive really slow, pissing off all the other cars, just to take a minute longer with that view.

Sometimes I walk around this strange city to a special rhythm. When I have a certain song pounding in my ears I am invincible. Who doesn't have a soundtrack to their life? For me it is a different one everyday. No matter what, the music sets my pace and I am happy for the moment. The world is moving around me but I am not part of the commotion. I am in my own world. I create my own reality as I move through space.
What made me feel alive today?
Smashing Pumpkins - Bullet With Butterfly Wings
despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage.

My favorite part (apart from the sassy one-liners) was the soundtrack which included Florence and the Machine, Silversun Pickups, Hole, Cobra Starship,Celestial Crown, and bunches more.
Here is the trailer:

Everyone is wearing long button-up sweaters as of late. I love it! Wear it buttoned up as a dress-type ensemble, wear it unbuttoned over a long tee, or simply use it to layer.
1. Thrift store
2. TJ maxx (xoxo)
3. Macys (xoxo)
& they were all super cheap too!
Totally unrelated BUT:
I really want a leather jacket. Not a heavy duty one but an h&m type thing..
like this one worn by my best friend (wallflower123):

Originally, this blouse hung straight down with a little bit of an "A-line" shape. This was a bit unflattering and when the wind blew from a certain angle, I looked pregnant. So I just tied the ends together for a more sleek look.
Sometimes I wear this blouse with my plaid black&white Betsey Johnson purse,
but I hate the idea of purse and backpack together. I have always been very OCD about the purse/backpack combo. Maybe I'm traumatized from back in high school when girls wore their huge backpacks and teeny tiny purses that really didn't have a point because they had no room for anything to go in there (okay okay maybe a lipstick).
Anyhow.. here's the rundown:
shescool checkered extra-long blouse from tjmaxx
hilaration purple leggings from the San Carlos thrift store. (My friend Zac actually gave them to me the other day. Why he bought them in the first place is beyond me.)
Keds tassle flats with 2inch wedge from Amazon.com
By the way, I love my Keds flats. They are simply and comfy. At first sight they just look like regular flats but they have a secret: They have a "hidden wedge" that gives the shoe a little lift. Something bothers me about two-toned wedges most of the time so I usually go for the solid-covered hidden wedge (with the excepetion of SOME cork/straw wedge platforms)
Good Night (or morning depending on your sleep cycle.. I know mine is all messed up)
& check out these low heeled covered wedges:

Check out LA Vintage.
Like this red leather jacket (80s) for $68:
One word: WOAH. These babies were HUGE in the 90s but somehow they died down in the start of the new millenium... May we blame UGGs for this occurance?
"Dr. Martens are practical, hard-wearing and a design classic" (Martin Roach). Pretty much: they last forever and come in many different colors and designs.
Having doubts that something worn by factory workers and large bald-headed racist men can actually be turned into something cute?
Well here are some looks incorporating this age-old classic:
bothered by the chunk? try some Dr.Martens flats or wedges:
add some color to the mix or try some floral prints:
So maybe summertime isn't the best time to throw on some docs, but these chunky classics would go great with a simple pair of shorts and a spaghetti strap or a flowy top/leggings combo. Whatever your cup of tea is, Dr.Martens has a design for you.

you are what you eat
pretty good advice actually, especially since the food here is good for those of you who are watching your weight (ahem me..).
so apart from t-cells... here is a killer t-shirt i came across the other day
Very simple... but very feminine as well.. it has fluidity and style to the graphics.
only $12.50 from forever 21 (I am such a teeny bopper I know)... they have cute stuff... horrible quality but fashionable. Also, I should note that the denim there isnt awful quality. The jeans are super cheap and last a while.. I have a pair 1 years old and going strong.
So if you want the shirt here is the link: tee
Have a breezy day!
