Coming to draw us in as their own

urban outfitters denim button up, gifted dress, zara clogs

This is one of my more 'gathered' looks.  On most days, more often than not, dishevelment is the case.  However I had an important meeting earlier that day and needed to look 'presentable.' haha If I had the choice, I would've thrown on an unbearably oversized sweater and paired it with some combat boots, which I eventually ended up wearing later in the week, ha.  Since we were in the area, the bf and I walked through Olvera St. shortly thereafter.  I was on a man hunt for the perfect rosary, but being picky always means coming out emptyhanded :(

+ a BIG thank you to Lisa and Evelyn for their loving shout outs.

Tailored Tuesday

victoria's secret cardigan, thrifted vintage leather shorts, h&m button up

Decided to treat myself with my version of r&r for finishing today's midterm by sprucing up my wardrobe, chalked full of leather goods.  I mean, I only have a book to read and two papers due on Thursday, but no big deal right? I've been scheming up a list of mini to-do's this past week and I just could not wait any longer.  The cardigan I've had for a while now and with inspiration from stockholm streetstyle, it was only a matter of time.  I picked up the shorts from buffalo exchange not too long ago, but haven't been able to make use of it because I got in a large.  As much as I love to sag a lot of my pants, leather shorts are not one of them, so I made them snug.  And lastly, my H&M button up that I wore here, got a complete makeover.  It turns out that my roommate has the exact same shirt in the same exact color and because there's no sense in having two of the same things under one roof, I chopped off the sleeves and added leather shoulder pads. 

Drooling over leather accents.  Can't wait to throw these on!! :)
Hope your day was as "productive" as mine. haha
