Power & Control

I am a firm believer that throwing a striking button down under any sweater is the fail proof outfit. Whether it is a meeting, interview, presentation, coffee date, or just an average day in class; you can't go wrong with this combo. I often wear my studded collar button down with my Huf sweatshirt as an updated tomboy prep look as well.

 I paired this distressed pastel pink sweater with a silk leopard button down, faux leather pants, black boots, and a dark gold spiked necklace. 

Sweater - Dorthy Perkins
Shirt - Goodwill
Sunnies - LuLus
Pants - Forever 21
Necklace - Stone Fox Style
Boots - Doc Martens

Cafe Racer Dreams

 If you've got the monday blues take a look at these amazing bikes and lust over them with me. I cannot wait until the day my dad and I are riding around on our custom bikes. I'm not sure when my obsession for Cafe Racers began, it might have been etched into my DNA or perhaps after seeing The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Now I just wish my mother didn't make my father sell his bike when my brother was born.

Most of these bikes are from Deus Customs, who recently teamed up with Raen to create limited edition sunglasses. Check em out!

No Scrubs






This song has been on repeat in my apartment the past few days. I don't usually obsess over music and play songs ad nauseum but this one is my exception, and Alt-J's entire album.

So in other news, I dyed my hair brown, which I am not 100% happy with but that's because I have been a blonde or nearly a blonde my entire life. I'm already determined to find a way to go back but I am going to fly my brunette flag for a few more weeks because it's winter, and why the hell not.

As for clothes...

Hat - Rubi (cotton on)
Sweater - DIY crop Columbia
Skull Button Down - LuLus
Shoes - Converse with screw in spike detail - 
(SUPER EASY DIY - they fit right into the shoelace holes!)

Just searched myself on pinterest, as the conceited blogger I am, and it looks like people really do look at my loobook! (pats self on back, slaps self in face for posting this, moves on)

Mödernaked - Inspiration for the Day

I recently came across this shop through We Are Selectors' tumblr. This Spanish company is really unique, and in my opinion has a soft edginess to it that makes me swoon.
