transitional dressing

straw hat + sunglasses: h&m, sweater +booties: zara, jeans: seven for all mankind, rings: asos

As someone who grew up on the east coast, my 17 year old self is scoffing at this upcoming statement: it was 67 degrees today, aka chilly enough to warrant wearing a sweater and jeans. My inner Los Angeleno is breaking free. But rather than complain about the "low" temperatures, I've really been enjoying the weather as of late. It's the perfect mix of sun, warmth, and wind, leaving you to wear whatever you want. Not quite winter but not quite summer-- some true spring weather. I've realized I talk about the weather a LOT. But then again it does dictate what I'm wearing so it does hold some relevance. All this weather talk triggers two thoughts: 1) socially awkward situations where you're like "sooo the weather..." in hopes of conversing 2) Inspector Clouseau securing the area

Hey hey, new hat! Actually one of two new hats from H&M. Accessorizing isn't one of my fortes, probably because I'm always in a rush to get to class in the AM. (Speaking of which, guess who was the genius who woke up early for an 8 AM lab, and walked halfway there only to remember there was no lab this week? This girl.) I guess beanies and sunglasses are technically accessories, but I wear them more for functionality to hide my matted hair and protect my eyes, their trendiness is a sort of plus. Major arm parties, layered on statement necklaces, and embellished cat eye "sunnies" are cool and all, but I think my usual look is somewhat simpler than that. Straw hat + a pack of minimalistic gold rings under $15, made cool by Balenciaga of course, sound pretty basic and feasible in comparison. A summer hat has been on my wish list for some time, but due to the shape or size of my head or ears, nothing fits me! Finally, an H&M location that had had hats in size large-- hallelujah! (If you have similar hat problems and live in LA, the store is century city.) This is the style btw, but you can't buy it online in the US :( Mine seems to have somehow turned downward in the front, but I actually like it more that way. In addition to the purposes previously stated, the hat + sunglasses combo effectively hides bad skin for no makeup days. Huzzah!


BUSTER BLUTH. Scary how applicable this is to myself.
