i'll think of it later

Happy Summer vacation everyone! I've just finished my junior year of college and my communications major (meaning next year all I have left to take are dance classes and a COGS class or two hehe). This summer I'll be staying in San Diego rather than going home to the LA area so that I can continue working part time at Free People and really explore SD before I relocate back home. San Diego summers are absolutely perfect: weather in the mid to upper 70s, no school, great food, and everyone's just going with the flow.

Awkward and abrupt transition into what I am wearing~

I LOVE this kimono jacket I got from Free People, because of the following reasons: bells sleeves, oversized, embroidery, floral, lace, black, versatile. All components of my style meshed into one! I layered it over one of my favorite white tees and with good ole' levi shorts. A perfect outfit for a summer night~

Howdy ya'll

... that sounds really strange coming from me... but I feel super southern in this outfit so we're just gonna roll with it! I am not ashamed to say that I watched the Hannah Montana Movie way too many times and cried three times the first time I watched it (I was young ok! like... 17!!!! hahah). The first cry was when she and Travis were breaking up and Hannah/Miley was like "no-o-o Travis, please!". The second cry was when she and Billy Ray were singing Butterfly Fly Away, because that was just a really beautiful father-daughter moment. And finally I cried when she sang The Climb because it was so inspirational and made me really believe that "Life's a climb, but the view is great."

Anyways, now that you all know about my unhealthy obsession with Hannah Montana (and the fact that I don't act my age) let's move on to the outfit:

Top: Free People 
Boyfriend Jeans: Nastygal
Shoes + Hat: Urban Outfitters 

I've had my eye on this Free People top since it came into our store, but I couldn't justify the $130 it cost. Finally though, after a couple of paychecks and dreaming about the top for weeks I decided to go for it and boy am I glad I did! It's the perfect summer top as it looks great with jean shorts, printed skirts, boyfriend jeans, as a bikini cover-up, etc. etc. 

In other news: Run River North's self-titled album has been on repeat for me this past week. My favorites are Beetle and Growing Up. Take a listen if you have a chance ^.^

Until next time,
<3 Olivia

o - l a n d s

Hello hello!

School's almost out and all I can think about is sweet Summer and freedom from school and studying and midterms and stress. One of the things I'm most looking forward to is attending Outside Lands in August WOOHOOOOO!!! It'll be my first official music festival experience and I couldn't be more excited.

From what I know, Outside Lands is a lot cooler (in temperature) than Coachella, which in my mind means the fashion is way cooler (in style) because hello, layering! This outfit is something I would wear to the festival. And maybe I'm being over-eager because who knows if I'll even like this outfit in August? All I know is, I feel like a kool-90s-hippie-grunge-kid-rebel-person, a persona that really isn't representative of who I actually am (teehee), but who doesn't wanna feel like a badass once in a while, yaknow?
