WHAT TO WEAR WHEN YOU’RE OBNOXIOUSLY HUNGOVER

Sometimes it happens. You don’t eat enough, you go too hard, and you wake up feeling like death incarnate the next morning. We’ve all been there- hangovers are a part of life, for the most of us, after all. And even when you puke in the bathroom of your favorite brunch place (aka me last Saturday) it always helps to at least look decent. I never thought I would be the sort of girl who bought a baseball cap but I had a moment of weakness at Urban Outfitters and had to buy it. I think sober me was looking out for hungover me because let me tell you- it’s an easy way to look put together when you don’t feel it.

I paired this cap with a vintage slip dress from Ivory at Forgotten Feather, a cut out bra from Urban Outfitters, my favorite bucket bag from Zara and loafers from Target.

What to wear when you're hungover AF

Saturdazae::: Bloody Maria’s and Metallics

I’M BACK IN THE SOUTH! I spent ten days in California and it was chill! I got back on Thursday at 4am. We flew into Charlotte-  where we found my sister’s car battery dead, thanks to me leaving a light on. That’s the second car battery I’ve killed in the past month. What even…The rest of Thursday was spent in a haze. It feels like today’s the first day that I am starting to feel like I’m back to a good internal clock.IMG_8506

Anyway, I’m glad it’s finally my favorite day of the week! Saturday is my absolute, guilt free lazy day. It’s my day to not do anything I don’t want to do and I absolutely love it. I love staying up really late and sleeping in on Saturday’s, or going to Soda City, Columbia’s farmers weekly market, if I actually wake up. Yesterday was spent staying up until 6am watching Bob’s Burgers and sleeping until 1pm today. Scorpio Moon, ya’ll. But I don’t have any plans and I don’t feel guilty about it!  I got lunch and drank a Bloody Maria and I’m currently sitting on my porch with no pants so I am content. IMG_8514I watched “Addams Family Values” for the first tim all the way through “as an adult” last night and oh my god. I get it. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be an Israeli, Mexican witch living in Columbia, South Carolina- it’s like that. Also, as someone who had to go to outdoor summer camp for over a decade and hated it- I feel for Wednesday and Pugsly. Going into 7th grade, my parents sent me to a Jewish sleepaway camp for a month. I had never been to sleepaway camp and I already considered myself a witch- I did not want to go. I cried every day for a week straight.

Camp was the worst and suburban normies are (usually) the worst too! There’s nothing fun or important about failing to use your voice and be your own person, and judging people for this, and for not falling into your realm of comfort, is lame. Anyway, I loved the movie and am once again, reminded how Morticia Addams is probably the best fictional character ever and that she is severely underrated. Goals, am I right. IMG_8518 IMG_8519 Bodysuit:: American Apparel// Shoes:: Vagabond// Bag: Zara// Bolo, skirt, jacket:: VintageIMG_8520I hope you all have Saturday’s spent with people you love, dancing or relaxing!

Wear What You Want, When You Want

A big part of fashion for me is being able to wear what I want solely because it makes me feel good. Even though I’m living in an area that may not understand my aesthetic or what my style is, I don’t ever try to tone down my style to suit the area. Fashion is art that you wear, and I’m not about to change my own style because someone else isn’t versed in abstract art. I don’t wear what I want to wear to please anyone else, I wear what I wear because it makes me feel confident.

Wear what you wanna wear because it makes you feel good. Don’t be limited because people won’t understand it. Teach people about being yourself by being comfortable enough to embrace who YOU are. Make people question their judgements and revaluate how quickly they label someone else. Love above all else.

My beautiful mother and I.

Midi Skirts and Rainy Monday’s

Olga already said it; if you’ve got it, flaunt it. I personally love hot pants and short skirts, but going to university four days a week permits me from wearing said fashion choices around campus. Even though I have 8 am classes Monday through Thursday, though, I still want to look good. What’s a girl to do when she feels like wearing a skirt but has to walk a mile around campus with a backpack?! Midi skirts are the perfect in between for women who want to feel a little more feminine and little more a la Dior, but still need to be practical. High waisted skirts that hit mid calf are both flattering and elongating and so easy to wear. Tuck  a sweater in, put on some chunky socks and short booties and grab a delicate purse and your set on a windy day. Throw on a crop top and some strappy sandals and you’re set for the perfect spring day as well! Midi skirts, especially flannel ones, have become my new love. So easy, so elegant and so fun to wear.

Vintage midi skirts are so easy and great to find. I got this kilt from Ivory at Forgotten Feather Vintage. So easy to dress up, especially on windy spring days where it’s chilly but not cold.

What are you flaunting this spring?!

Namaste,

Style Sunday: Supernatural

Happy Sunday one and all! Today should have been a chilly November morning spent sipping coffee, but alas in Columbia it was a warm morning that was spent taking photos (after sipping coffee at brunch of course). I don’t mind the warmer weather in the months it’s suppose to be warm, but it is almost mid November, October came and went and I want to be able to celebrate Fall!

Anyway, I will have to celebrate the season in my own way, which means wearing darker colors and embracing the fact that my olive skin will be looking pastey and pale for the next few months. I always try to challenge myself with my outfits, and I try to wear pieces I haven’t worn in a while to spice things up. Today I was really feeling a black color pallet with pops of gold, and I decided upon this thrifted skirt and my favorite black leotard. This leotard is easily my favorite piece and I have gotten so much wear out of it since i bought it to go see The Pretty Reckless that it’s ridiculous. My babe friend Rachael, who I went to brunch with, pointed out this old gas station that has been completely painted white. She loves dark colors as much as I do and knew this would be the perfect place to take photos.

What I’m Wearing Wednesday

I had a lot of fun featuring some of my favorite ladies last month, but it’s time to change it up! Today begins “What I Wore Wednesday”, so I’ll be catching you up on what I’ve been wearing. I love throwing on a lot of layers, but unlike fall, which is my favorite season, Summer is time to lose the layers and bask in the season. Summer is time for bright colors and having sun kissed skin.

Here’s what I’ve been wearing this week!
