I apologize if the photos featured in this post are slightly inconsistent with my current appearance. If you happen to follow me on Instagram, you might have realized that my hair doesn't quite look like this anymore.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to take a leap of faith and chop my hair to the shortest length it's been since I was a a bowl-cut-bearing pre-schooler. Oh, I also got bangs.
Though my "look" has dramatically changed, I still love these photos taken by my friend Rick Bhatia (no matter how deceiving they may be).
These photos feel extremely moody. I hope you'll excuse the dramatics. However, this is a pretty accurate representation of what I've looked like over the past couple of weeks. With midterm season upon us, adequate sleep is a rarity. Dark circles are, more often than not, present under my eyes. Not only that, but I rarely have the energy to express any other emotion than exhaustion. It's a beautiful sight to see.
As expected, LA Fall is not measuring up to stereotypical expectations. With 80º days and slightly cooler nights, my go-to outfits have been ones that fall somewhere between Summer and Fall. These transitionary outfits usually include jeans (as do the majority of my looks), a pair of black boots (like this Jeffrey Campbell cut-out heel pair), and a semi-warm top. I absolutely love the earthy and slightly unfinished feel of this flared sleeve white top.
This is truly a winning look, mostly because it's just a reimagined version of your classic "jeans and a white tee" outfit. Try your local flea market for a pair of distressed vintage Levis! I picked this pair up at an Echo Park boutique carrying strictly women's vintage denim, aka Heaven. One piece of advice — when you go vintage denim shopping, make sure you're dressed in clothes that come easily on and off. And tie your hair up. It's a workout. You'll see what I mean when you go and try it out for yourself.
