Thin Copper Pennies

Apparently I have had a thing for trains lately. But there is something really magical about them that I can't get over. I remember staying in my grandparents bed & breakfast in Mississippi and placing pennies on the tracks. In the middle of the night I'd wake to the sound of the trains passing through. In the morning I would race my brother down to the tracks to see if our pennies had been flattened into thin copper masterpieces. Then we would run back home and drink lemonade and eat these oatmeal cookies that my grandma and Aunt Virginia would make. My grandma would let me lick my finger and dip it in the lemonade mix. I don't know why I loved that so much. Aunt Virginia was the best. She would watch over the bed & breakfast and cook for the guests and keep everything in it's place. Life was really simple when we were there. But not simple at all. And I guess that's childhood naivety. And it's something that I miss very much. With age comes awareness. It's learning how to deal with the knowledge that's the hard part. xxx.

RENEW and REDO + Win this look!

We've been redoing our house over at Casa De For The Freedom. And I'm really excited with how it's coming together. We don't have a couch. It's great! Haha, but we're actually selling some furniture through Moveloot, it basically takes out Craigslist and sells the furniture for you on a well merchandised site. I even tried auctioning Rob on the site, but apparently they didn't want him. The problem? If you're trying to sell to trade (sell your furniture and take credit to the site) you end up couchless until your furniture sells. Whoops. The good news is we made this adorable little reading nook, by one of our windows, and I'm really delighted by it. I'm almost as delighted by the new nook as I am about wearing moccasins and leggings again. Being cozy and comfortable is like a vacation in itself. So this Garage Sweater, Beanie, and leggings sort of make me swoon. Plus these moccasins from Le Bunny Bleu aren't too shabby (wink face) I mean c'mon look at how cute they are. P.S. WIN THIS GARAGE CLOTHING LOOK HERE.

Because Wednesdays are better in a vintage Harley Sweatshirt and camo pants. This pullover is from Painted Bird, one of my favorite stores in San Francisco. But I just had a throwback moment and took a look at Junk Food's sweatshirt collection and let's just put it this way, I need all of them.

Am I the only one that dreams of Freighthopping? Or was it my boyfriend that planted this idea in my head? Or was it swampy. The illustrious graffiti artist who lives off of nothing and travels across the USA, train hopping. Well one day, if I wasn't just a princess underneath all of this badass Garage attire, I would love to live like that. I want to either be on a beach in a hut serving coffee to locals and traveling surfers, or doing something reckless like hiding in a freight train amongst the cargo and the warmth of my bearded flannel wearing boyfriend. OR I could just live the life I'm living and make movies/documentaries/short films about these things. The producer side of my mother has definitely started to come out now that I am in my twenties. All I want to do is be an art director, come up with ideas, spew them out to the world, and let everyone soak it all in...or start writing again...whichever comes first.

Monotone in Lucky Brand Jeans + Song of the Day!

the best camo jeans | skinny leg | stylish | cute
I love pants. I'm a pants girl. Good jeans. Leggings. JEGGINGS. They're just my thing. Well when Lucky Brand Jeans approached me to work with them, I got a wee excited. I haven't owned a really nice pair of jeans since a roommate stole my Joes. I think, or they 'disappeared in the laundry'. I digress. But, going shopping for these jeans wasn't only an amazing experience, it was the first time I had been into a Lucky Brand store in a few years. There were sweaters and dresses that I just melted over. And the manager at the store was so helpful and easy to be around, I just wanted to go back to hang out! You know how pushy sales associates can be...this was the opposite, but I still wanted to buy everything he recommended! He steered me towards their Brook jeggings, I considered doing a standard pair of blue jeans, perhaps even oxblood, but when would I ever have the chance to shop like this at Lucky again? So I convinced myself to embrace the rocker in me and go with the camo Brook Jeggings. Click read more for outfit details & more photos!

Netflix for Women's Fashion? Um, tell me more.

Do you love this jacket/cardigan thing as much as I do? Do you think these earrings are the best thing since french toast? Am I making some idioms up right now? Maybe. But that's because I am just so freaking excited to let you know that LE TOTE (The Netflix for Women's Fashion) is letting in new members, for free. Yes that's right. You get a whole month free. And you don't even need a code. So quit what you are doing right now, or just take a break, visit their site, and sign up! Because this offer won't be available for long. Like I seriously think it'll be over tomorrow, so don't even hesitate. Because if you liked the earrings and the jacket in this post, you'll like LE TOTE. Why? Because those pieces are from LE TOTE. Wow. Yep. LE TOTE. Okay I'm done. Bye.

Can't Get Enough - Richard Ace (A peek into my Hawaii Trip!)

I'm still working on getting all of my Hawaii pictures in order for a proper post. I am just really really talented at procrastinating, so give me a little bit more time, and maybe I'll be able to give you a look into how amazingly beautiful the trip was. And now that I know there are places to camp for $5 a night and you can rent a car for $12 a day, an upcoming trip is in order, especially one that involves me actually trying to surf again. But the desire to rent a beach house on the North Shore of Oahu is just too tempting. But the good news is, there are flights from SFO to Maui for under $400, and I might buy a flight right now. The travel bug is real. Oh and did I mention I won a trip to the bahamas with ASOS? So you know that means I need each one of these Tallow bathing suits: uno, dos, tres, quatro.  Click read more for outfit details + more photos!

Pillow Talk Poet & Jared Leto Run In!

Synesthesia? Probably the coolest thing ever. Running into Jared Leto, maybe a little cooler. But either way this busy Tuesday has been a blast. From trying out all of the Pinrose scents to finding out that Jared Leto thinks my boyfriend is handsome, it's been a hectic day. But the best way to calm down is to sit back and smell the flowers, or at least some Pinrose petals. Take their online quiz and find out what scent fits your personality, then try your first two scents for free! I am the Pillowtalk Poet. I guess that explains why I love sleeping in! Which scent are you?

Happy (belated) Halloween!

I finally got to dress up this year! Last year we stayed in and watched the shining, which I was definitely bummed about, because I had all of the pieces for a Jeremy Scott inspired alien costume. But this year, with my new hair, a whole world of opportunity opened up. Betty Draper, Khaleesi, Karl Lagerfeld, the world was pretty much my oyster. So I tried them all, well except for Khaleesi, but there's always next year. I think my Karl Lagerfeld costume was the winner. But there's nothing like a set of vampire teeth, doing The Charleston, and pretending Zelda Fitzgerald was a vampire. Click read more to see all of my costumes from this Halloween!
