I adore this tank but I totally don't deserve to wear it. First, I'm sort of a lightweight. One drop of alcohol and my face turns bright red. And secondly, Mai Tais are definitely not my drink of choice. But whatever, let's just say I am wearing it as an ironic statement. I'm loving this long silhouette in shorts lately. It's blends perfectly with my already tomboyish wardrobe. I bought another pair in navy too, expect a lot of wear of both pairs this summer. Or starting now, since apparently LA skipped winter all together. hashtag blessed.

that stripe dress

Another T-shirt dress + leather jacket combo. It's one of my favorite combos for a lazy day. My favorite thing about it and the reason why I tend to go back to it time and time again is that it's flattering on all body types and is one of those outfits that work for winter or summer. I cut the hem off this basic stripe t-shirt dress to shorten it. But I'm also hoping after a few wears and washes that the hem will fray. I think it'll give it a much cooler worn in look.

Whoa it's been a hot minute since I last wore a maxi dress. The truth is, being vertically challenged makes it hard to find maxis that don't drag a mile long. Although I can take it to the tailor to hem it, it's quite a hassle so I just avoid maxis all together. But this one was so pretty I couldn't resist. I think this could be the start of a beautiful love affair with maxis! Don't get me wrong, I still think it is a hassle tailoring it, but it's a hassle that I will endure. Because the fun of twirling around all day while getting weird stares makes it all worth it.
