Fringe for Fall: Jeffrey Campbell Rizzler Backpack





When I heard that Jeffrey Campbell was coming out with a various types of handbags and such I died when I found out he was also making backpacks as well! These funky and fun fringed backpacks are great for a stylish back to school come back! I love the fun colors and the style of the backpack. Ranging from $167 to $302 on Karmaloop in 5 colors it's so hard to pick which one you like the most! And if you can't opt in for spending that load of cash on a backpack here is a similar version sold at Urban Outfitters.

Pick of the day:



Pembroke Stride Collar dress from Shopruche

Orange is the color this season and I'm in love with Peter Pan collars (that's what I call them at least) Such a simple dress but it gives so much statement. Pair it with the Open Tweed Jacket from Forever 21 and you'll be classically chic.

DIY: Flowers and Paramore


Did a trial of the popular floral headband - inspired by The Beauty Department D.I.Y. Friday, Free People, and MacBarbie07 from Youtube.

I found a fake sunflower in the sewing room and decided to do a trial of the floral headband, but I am for sure going out to buy smaller ones that I can actually wear! Hahaha.

Looks kinda silly. These are only used for dramatic use, I'm guessing.

Also my sister has learned how to sew this summer and she's actually made me a couple of dresses. We go to swap meet and basically just pick out a yard of fabric we like. This weekend I found an awesome Paramore print that I had to get! I most likely will be wearing this shirt with just some jeans and a blazer because the print is so loud. In love with it!

Adventures: Food Truck Mania

So living in Long Beach, the food truck trend has been very popular for some time now. My sister and I usually just scout out for the classic Kogi truck, which you can never go wrong with having a Korean short rib taco. So basically food trucks are kinda part of our (maybe not) daily but maybe weekly lives? But today was just crazy! Went to the Lunch It Truck It today for the Grilled Cheese Truck and also got an ice cream sandwich from Chunk - n - Chip.

Me and my FOUR Cheesy Mac N' Rib sandwiches! (Just kidding, I ate one.)

Guava + goat cheese ice cream in between two red velvet cookies. (Not a big fan of this...)

And since I guess our food truck rally for lunch wasn't enough we came back home and watch 2 hours of the Great Food Truck Race. After that we headed out for some more yummies from the Get Shaved store front (which came from the popular ... wait for it... FOOD TRUCK. )

Coconut and Lychee flavored shaved ice + Strawberry, Mango, and Lychee on top of coffee ice cream. (What a yummy combo.... not really. Hahah)

Coconut, Guava, and Lychee on top of vanilla bean (?) ice cream.

After our shaved ice goodies I headed down to another food truck meet up with my sister and cousin... it was food truck madness that wasn't even planned.

Meet N' Potatoes fully loaded fries. Pretty good, could use some type of sauce or something.

So as you can see, my eating habits aren't the best and I'm probably going to have to run 904203984108412 miles to feel healthy again but it is so worth it. ANYWAYS! Here's what I wore today:

Shirt - American Eagle // Skirt - Nordstrom's Rack // Sandals - Deena and Ozzy // Sunglasses - Roxy // Bag - Goodwill

Mixed my floral skirt with my tribal print sweater as it was a tiny bit chilly outside today. I also re-dyed my tips today. Just all red this time! No purples or blues, I actually like just one color. Welps that's all for today! Two more weeks of summer left... most will be put to good use of... homework! Whoo hoo!

Get it for less: Isabel Marant Dicker Boots

Rumi Neely - Fashiontoast


For so long I've just been admiring the Isabel Marant Dicker boots as seen on both Rumi Neely and Katie holmes and other bloggers countless times! They haunt me. A perfect heel on a western inspired ankle boot... how can you not love it! Since it is mostly sold out everywhere on the planet I have found a solution that will even save you some dollar bills.

Dolce Vita Jamison Bootie - $119 on Piperlime.com

Adventures to: No idea.

So today my sister and I planned a trip to well... we weren't really sure.

Photobucket
Half and Half Boba... dang awkward cups that can't fit in the cup holder!!
Photobucket
Scary building while driving through some really scary part of whatever city we were in... yeah we were that lost.

4evrice So you're forever cool??

Shirt - Modcloth/ Shorts - Forever 21/Sandals- Deena and Ozzy

Yeahp, I wear those shorts and those sandals like everyday... no lie. But overall, today was fun. Getting lost and relying on our good and 'trusty' GPS system named Carmen to get us places wasn't the best thing to do but we got home safe and sound leaving with some shabu shabu and Half and Half tea and boba in our stomachs after 6 hours. Ended this long day with some Kogi and Maroon 5.

XOXO t.

Pick of the day:




Venezia Memento Polka Dot skirt from ShopRuche
Being a very frequent visitor to their site and comparing prices with Modcloth and Lulu's ShopRuche seems to have one item that I just haven't seen anywhere else! I am in love with this polka dot skirt and will need it this fall. Are you into this polka dot craze?

My fabulous Dad, Sis, and Mamma!

Went to Vegas for 3 days - stayed at the Venetian. Watched Phantom which pretty much changed my life (little over exaggeration but it was awesome!!). Ate the good food and practically lived on the crab legs and cheesecake at the Wynn and Bellagio. Very relaxing and fun Vegas trip also accompanied by my two cute little cousins! We went with them to Circus Circus (as all little kids go there) and won them about 1000 tickets which I'm pretty sure made their day - it would have made mine if I was their age! Overall, I had lots of fun and good food! Can't wait to go back!
