Welp I just found out Death From Above will be in San Francisco in a few months. And it's already sold out. Huge bummer. I am also super uncomfortable on my couch right now trying to find a good position without any luck. So it looks like I'll probably just hit the hay. AKA get ready for bed and turn on some Seinfeld. Oh yea. . .If you were ever wondering how this all worked, the magic of blogging and all of it's luster. . .Well, I write these posts at night, sometimes during my 15 min lunch break, and schedule them out to post at another time. Which is why I am talking about going to bed and you're reading this in the future! SoOoOoOoOo crazy. Sorry for the lack of intelligence and good content in my posts lately! I'm losing it, my mind, that is. At least I can balance it with beautiful photography! These photos were taken by Summer Wilson, my co-worker and the woman behind Rapture and Relish!

Dear New York City,
I'm writing this from the bed of my dear high school friend's apartment in the Upper West Side. It's late here but still early for me, as I am on West Coast time. I took a red eye last night and even though I slept through for most of the flight, it feels like I haven't even shut my eyes. Ah, the nature of a red eye. Nonetheless it feels like a fleeting eternity. Yes, oxymoron, I know. Either way, I don't have much to say – per usual. But I am starting to like you a bit more. Still, there is something about SF that I love so so so much more. Perhaps I just can't stand the humidity after being away from it for two years. It's nothing against your rawness, your charm, or your character. Your subways are a beautifully chaotic maze, that are so much more efficient than San Francisco's municipal transit system. And I love that about you. You're great, but I miss San Francisco, though it's only been one day. Hey, I meant to ask...does this bun look like the smiling poop emoji to you? I think it does. Or does it more so resemble hazardous waste from a powerplant in The Simpsons? The green tint is just, so, quaint. But thank god I fixed it. Sort of. And if you followed me on social media you would know that, you silly goose. But goodnight, city of lights. Sweet dreams, city of sounds. Au Revoir, city of fashion bloggers here for fashion week with your silly little dogs that are really just ploys for attention so photographers will take photos of you (run on sentence intended, read it like you're saying it in one breath). I will see you when I wake. I will greet you with a lens, ready to take on the streets, so I can show all of these people, that I too, am an attention seeking fashion blogger. No shame here.

The past week (more like month) has been full of surprises! And fun exciting stuff. So I am going to give you the lowdown. Why? Because aren't you obsessed with me? That's why you're reading this right? JUST KIDDING. I honestly just haven't shot new content, because I am horrible. Plus my boyfriend has been working on (super cool) shoots all of the time! Which is why this is all I have to show you...so read this bulleted list about my life to catch up! Imagine that I'm saying this all in a Billy on the Streets voice.
WASSUP. whats Happenin. Where the hell have you been?
- Dyed my hair blue. And freaked the eff out!
- Was Featured on Refinery29 as an SF blogger you NEED to know about!
- Went to Big Sur and got yelled at by locals for blowing up a surf spot. #nophotos
- Started settling into my new apartment! Sort of.
- Got porch furniture! And made the house kind of cute for my bday party!
- Turned 21! FINALLY.
- Bought my mom a flight to see me! I haven't seen her in almost 2 years!!!!!!
- Made lots of "Sorry Ben" and "Where Have You Been B*%$^" jokes because my roommate is on a Summer Heights High, kick. ie. the title of this post.
So a lot has happened, and a lot is still going on! Life is pretty rad and exciting. But sometimes I think it's important to slowdown and take it easy. I want to do and accomplish so much, when really you just have to take a step back and look at how amazing things are right now.

And yet again I have gone a whole week without posting. Why? Because you guessed it, I am the worst fashion blogger ever. But hey, at least I come at you with some lovely Friday tunes and a daily dose of sarcasm. Have any of you read one of these Elite Daily articles along the lines of "9 Signs You've Found the Man You Should Make Your Husband"? They're the worst. These articles are the epitome of what stupidity means. Not being a hater, but get ready for my article claiming that everything Elite Daily Tells You is a Lie. None of this has anything to do with this post, I am just smashing my fingers into the keys and seeing what comes out. Aka I am at work and I am trying to write some jibber jabber to go alongside these photos, so I seem like a worthy blogger. PLEASE don't let this text distract from how awesome these Others Follow pieces are. They're dreamy, ethereal, and perfectly whimsical. So they definitely called for a dramatic hat with a necklace draped on top. That could be a post, DRAMATIZE YOUR HAT GAME WITH THIS ONE CRAZY IDEA! Catchy right? Watch out Refinery29, I'm coming for you.

As many of you know (because I was just so freakin excited), I was lucky enough to head to Outside Lands with Garage Clothing. I can't believe it's already been a week since the festival! My friend Robby happened to be shooting the festival for a music blog, so I stole him away to take some photos, he's so good and such a life saver, check out his Instagram! I have seriously been wearing Garage pieces for the last week and a half now. I can't even help it, I'm that obsessed. I am going to do a little, jk long, recap of the festival, get ready!
I missed Bear Hands, I couldn't be more bummed about that one...but Disclosure and Grouplove made up for it. Plus, The Arctic Monkeys were such a treat! For the first day I knew to bring layers, as a SF resident, I know you can't let the heat trick you. These Garage pieces were made for each other, everything layered so well!

Though it was incredibly crowded I had an amazing time exploring the different areas of the festival. The dedication to the arts was stunning – it made me want to get into set design! This was one of my favorite pieces because I am in love with Mason Jennings, Alan Watts, and Eckhart Tolle.

On the second day we finally ventured into the woods, I had been looking forward to this part the entire weekend! I could have hidden away in McLaren Pass forever, there were so many nooks and crannies!
I'm also super in love with Juxtapoz magazine, my mom introduced me to that magazine years ago...seeing the curated art from them was just as great as Dr. Flotsam's Hell Brew Revue carnival set-up in the woods. Dr. Flostam had me enamored immediately. It was as if you stepped onto the set of a play, everyone was in character and the experience was so unique.
I am building my home here.
I like trees.
I'm so pensive...
My favorite day of the festival was Sunday when I roamed the grounds alone. There is something about not being tied to anyone's decisions or being pulled to a certain set because of someone else, I got to trek around and see some of my favorite performers whilst taking my time to explore the different vendor, food, and beverage areas. UM PLUS I GOT TO SEE CRAIG ROBINSON!!!!!!!! He was hidden in the woods at a stage judging in some sort of promotion, it was phenomenal, he is SO funny.
Mid day drum circles? Yes please.
A little break from the crowds during The Flaming Lips! I went for a layered funky look. I loved wearing this Garage dress with their distressed boyfriend jeans. My mom always tried putting me in dresses and jeans, I hated it! Now I'm doing it to make a statement, she would be proud :)
I told you, I could live in this forest forever.
I still wish I could have found the Blue Bottle! But seeing Ben Howard, Ray Lamontagne, and Cut Copy was worth missing out on coffee I can get everyday. I can go on and on about this weekend...but all you need to leave with is, Outside Lands is an AMAZING festival. I really suggest you all go! The smell of the eucalyptus trees in Golden Gate Park will get you addicted to the nostalgia of the Outside Lands, once you come!
Thank you again Nico and Jo for sending lil ole' me to Outside Lands, it was so lovely meeting you and being introduced to your brand. You won a lifetime customer. And readers, I promise you, their clothes are so great, do yourself a favor and start shopping at Garage Clothing stores and on their site!

I have some REALLY exciting news. I am going to Outside Lands with Garage Clothing Co. I cannot wait to show you the looks we've picked out and share the Outside Lands experience with you! It's the perfect festival, especially when the fog begins to roll in through the redwoods. It's like a mystical and magical wonderland. Plus you don't feel the need to wear tiny high waisted shorts and headdresses, it's a down to earth, fun loving, casual festival. Well at least last year it was! I'll report back next week. Here's a casual look from the other day, I love that I can wear stuff like this to work! I don't know what I would do if I had to wear blazers all of the time....thank god I work at a start up.
Also, can I get real for a second? I think 'Get Real' will be my new segment where I speak some (opinionated) truth about things that concern me in the world. Okay, here goes it...people are obsessed with the adrenaline of drama and gossip, and the attention they get from spreading it. Which I understand, because it is exciting when something crazy happens. But can we save that for when we get home to drink a glass of wine and watch reality tv? Just because we wake up and nothing crazy has happened yet, does that mean we need to cause a ruckus at 9am? Take it easy, life is too short to live anxiously waiting for the next crazy thing to happen. Zen is the new xanax, take more of it. Being bored is a blessing. Relax.
