Urban Outfitters Tee Cotton On Skirt Alexander Wang Rockie Zara Leather Jacket
Here's a quick outfit post of what I wore over the weekend. I spent the day trying to sell clothes after I did a massive closet purge. It was also warm, yet cloudy which is why I opted for a diy-crop shirt and leather jacket over it. No matter what I wear, black seems to be the color I gravitate towards.

Cotton On Sweater Sheinside Crop Topshop Jeans Sheinside Clutch Balenciaga Boots
Finally my hiatus is over! I'm back home in California and it feels good wearing a sweater because it's cute rather than for warmth. Today's post is dedicated to duplicates, or dupes for short. It's essentially the nicer way of saying "rip-off." Rag & Bone's Talia V-neck sweater has been pretty popular recently. Everyones wearing it and everyone's copying it too. Stores like Forever21 and NastyGal all have their own remakes, but I purchased my sweater from Cotton On during Black Friday. The fabric isn't too heavy, which makes it perfect for "winter" days in California. Another dupe I have is my crop top from Sheinside, which looks like something sold by For Love & Lemons. The only thing that's real are the boots I'm wearing. I'll just be forever borrowing them from my friend until I can find and afford a pair of my own.

Brixton Brimmed Hat Pins and Needles Top (via Urban Outfitters Surplus) Forever 21 Jeans Alexander Wang Rockie
This year is my first year actually experiencing fall. I'm down for the cooler weather and the changing of the leaves. I've been on the hunt for a perfect olive green brimmed hat ever since I gave mine away to a friend. It has definitely become a staple item in my wardrobe. To me, the hat makes it look like I put in a lot of effort into my outfit, when really I've been wearing different variations of black skinny jeans + ankle booties + plain tee for the entire week.

Zara Jacket Brandy Melville Dress Alexander Wang Bag Quay Australia Sunglasses
Sorry for the lack of posts, but this week I've been moving into my apartment at school! Here's the outfit I wore to my last LA shopping trip for a while. (Also, I'm not sure why the saturation of my jeans is all weird.) Hopefully I'll find someone around here to take some outfit pictures for this blog, but in the meantime feel free to follow my instagram!

Brandy Melville Halter Top Brandy Melville Striped Shirt Zara Jeans World Market Necklace
Any kind of white clothing scares me. When I wear them I feel like that day I'm going to be a major klutz and spill something on myself. I got these kinda-boyfriend-not-really jeans from the Zara sale. I also wanted to show off this necklace that I've been eyeing for forever. I was going to buy a nearly exact necklace from an online shop for almost $90, but I found this one in World Market for less than half that. The quality is top notch too. I also wanted to bring the attention away from these extremely white jeans and show off how cool I am for layering a halter top with a deep v-neck shirt. (So original, I know.)

Topshop top Cooperative (c/o Urban Outfitters) dress 14th and Union (c/o Nordstrom Rack)boots Alexander Wang bag

The only thing better than a cute dress is one with pockets! Denim, or chambray if you're feelin' fancy, dresses are really great because they've got the look of dungarees without worrying about looking like a farmer. I wanted to elongate my legs so I opted for these super cute cut-out boots, which I know will get a lot of wear since autumn is just around the corner.

H&M Halter Top American Apparel Chiffon Blouse Alexander Wang Rockie 
Sometimes it's okay to follow trends. If everyone's wearing it, clearly there's a reason to love it. I guess this is why my outfit looks something straight out of Brandy Melville. I'm also rockin' the over the shoulder pose so I guess that's cool.

Zara Denim Jacket Zara Dress Forever 21 Necklace Forever 21 Backpack Nike Roshe Runs

I realize I've worn out this denim jacket far too much, but let's not get into that. I wanted to make this post to show off my latest purchase from Forever 21. Although their quality is iffy at times, my wallet applauds them for their great dupes. Among their over-studded and rather questionable inventory, there are definitely great affordable pieces for someone like me who likes having a few on-trend pieces without breaking the bank. My new bag is clearly inspired by the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli backpack. I'm in love with it and I like how it dresses up one of my favorite go-to no-effort outfits.

Zara Jacket T by Alexander Wang Crop Sweater Thrifted Skirt Nine West Flats Zara Choker
Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that 90s style is back. (Have you seen the amount of people selling tattoo chokers on etsy?) Those aren't really my style so I opted for this pearl choker from Zara because it adds a more polished look to my outfit, even with my oversized denim jacket. Whenever a crop sweater and mini skirt are paired together I get those Clueless-esque vibes. I've honestly been obsessed with this crop sweater because I'm a sucker for Alexander Wang and I purchased it for $40 on my trip to Las Vegas last week at the Neiman Marcus outlet! So choker + crop sweater + mini skirt + denim jacket, I think I've got those 90s essentials down.

Topshop Shirt Windsor Shorts Nike Roche Runs Celiné Clutch
Spending a long weekend in Vegas means that it's time to shop. I'm really liking the whole sporty vibes of this outfit and the fact that the crystal print on this top doesn't make it that obvious, even if the numbers on the sleeves do. These Roche Runs have also been pretty popular amongst bloggers everywhere and they definitely made walking the strip a breeze.

Reformation Jacket Topshop Tank Zara Skirt Nastygal Clutch Birkenstock Sandals

Yesterday I was sweating out a fever, but today I spent my first Sunday of summer in LA with my friends. We went to the usual places: the Grove, Urth Caffe, and the Melrose Trading Post. While we were in Melrose we just had to take snaps of our outfits in front of the Paul Smith store. I've never actually shopped in there, but taking pictures there is just something you do I guess. Whenever I'm in LA, I also like taking my weirder pieces and this holographic and transparent clutch I snagged from the nastygal sale is definitely weird. I really like it, even though it felt like it was melting in the sun today.

Zara Tee Zara Dungarees Forever 21 Necklace "Arizona" Birkenstocks
Last summer I bought this pair of dungarees (aka overalls), but I didn't really think I pulled them off. I felt like I was dressing like a little kid again. I'm happy they're still in this year because my view on them has definitely changed. Maybe it's because I follow far too many Australian bloggers on instagram, but with all the jelly shoes and thick-strapped sandals trending right now, I've learned to love the Birkenstock trend. Brands like Steve Madden and Celiné are making their own models, but I got my hands on the originals. These two pieces will definitely be part of my summer staples this year.
