SUNSET BOULEVARD


Chain & Crosses Necklace c/o Merrin & Gussy, Watercolor Sleeveless Blouse c/o The Editor's Market, Beige Fitted Jacket c/o ShopAkira, Shredded Pastel Bag c/o The Editor's Market, Bleached High-Waisted Shorts c/o Paradox, Colin Stuart Wedges

Dreamy pastels are something I've been wanting to incorporate into my closet more and they suit the laid back and relaxed spirit of California rather well in my opinion! I wanted to put together a look that was inspired by the springs and summers in California because quite frankly, I have had enough of the winter cold! I got this watercolor print blouse from The Editor's Market, and when I noticed that they also had this pastel bag, they were literally calling out to be worn together, don't you think? I've never seen anything like this purse which is why I immediately fell in love with it :)

For the classic California touch, I wore my shredded denim shorts because they always make me think of the beach. And to round out the overall color palette, I added this neutral colored jacket from ShopAkira. I admit that I mainly wanted this jacket because I loved the fitted cut paired with the pointed shoulders in Pepper's white suit jacket in the Iron Man 3 trailer. Fit honestly makes all the difference in the world––it's a bit tougher for me to find jackets that fit tightly in the sleeves because my arms are kind of noodle-like (not sure how else to describe them haha) and most sleeves that are intended to be fitted, still look baggy on me. So when I come across a jacket that fits me like this, it's definitely an awesome find!

I hope everyone is having a pleasant start to their week too :) Thanks as always for taking the time to read my posts and to leave your kind comments! I'm also in an extra-good mood today because I found out that I was accepted to the Otis College of Art and Design! Woohoo!!

    1. Thanks! :) I don't really do anything special to take care of my hair :o I just don't do anything that would damage it (with the exception of curling my hair maybe once every 3 months or so). But otherwise I don't dye, straighten, or blow dry it (I like to towel dry or air dry it). I also don't get my hair trimmed regularly even though people say you need to get your split ends trimmed... I just leave them alone because I don't believe that they cause your hair to "split off" to that much of a length that it would stop your hair from growing! Hope this helps! x
