The White Flapper Dress

Afterlight

Hello my lovely readers! This past Saturday my father and I hit up Sunset to visit Book Soup (a book store). It was my first time visiting it and I loved my experience! As an avid reader I can always get lost for hours amongst the shelves. The weather had finally cooled down enough in Los Angeles for me to wear my hair down again, and put something on other than standard shorts. Hope you enjoy this post!

Here is a full shot of my outfit. The dress is old, from American Eagle, but you can find similar ones here and here. The shoes are my newest loves. I sadly couldn’t find them anywhere, but I got mine at DSW if you want to check out your local store. They were a recent purchase, so I think they’ll still be in stores! 🙂 My bag is my beloved Longchamp Le Pliage.

This was the yummiest ice coffee! It was something “hip”, cold pressed from Kenya. 🙂

Book Soup has a wonderful newsstand, located right outside the store. The magazine selection was great, offering European issues of most magazines and having every fashion magazine known to woman (even some I had never heard of before!). For lunch, I had a salmon salad, it was yummy and refreshing.

Aren’t these glasses the coolest? You can find them here, I ordered them off of ASOS. In the bright California sun, the lenses always end up being mirrored blue.

A Little Bit Of Back

Hello my lovely readers! Let me begin by saying that I know it has been much too long, and for that I’m very sorry. School, college acceptances and the final rush of senior year has just been so much! I’m loving every second though 🙂

I started missing my blog and decided to make a solid effort to re-establish myself on here. I love taking pictures, writing, and posting for you guys! I also want this blog to be up and running because I have some big life events coming up in the next three months (graduation, goodbyes, and moving to Paris!). I definitely want you all to be a part of it.

That being said though, let’s get right back into posts, starting with this fashion one!

Spring has arrived, and I’ve been obsessed with any skirt/shirt combination. There are countless ways to do this! Here I’ve chosen a look that’s a little bit more edgy, wearing dark Doc Martens. However, this look can also be made incredibly flirty; trying pairing a floral skirt with a lace top and some cute patent flats!
