EYE see YOU

Long time no post! 

I was in New Mexico for about a week and then in LA for a little over a week!! It was such a fun time. In New Mexico I spent time with my parents and my boyfriend's family. While in LA I stayed with my best friend, Madeline, and I saw a few of my friends! 

In New Mexico, my boyfriend, Austin, and I stayed in an adorable little camper ( I wish I had taken pictures because it was decorated super cute-ly). We were in Abiquiu; which is a small town in Northern New Mexico (where Georgia O'Keeffe lived). We had campfires, hiked, hung out with old friends, spent time with family, swam in the Abiquiu Lake, and visited Albuquerque. 

Austin and I drove to Los Angeles from Abiquiu, which took us two days. (I should say Austin drove and I sat in the passenger seat..) The first few days we were in LA I was really exhausted (either from all the travel or from heat exhaustion :-/ ), so we stayed in and didn't do too much. It was nice to start our LA visit slowly, but once we left I wished we had had more time in LA so I could have seen more people. While there, I did a few photo shoots, ate tons of delicious vegan food, and saw friends. I had so much fuunnn and was really bummed to have to come home. BUT I am hoping to be able to visit LA again soon.











top - c/o Deep Antiquity
pants - 24 HRS from Tunnel Vision
bag - c/o Inu Inu
boots - Volatile

Ummm, this bag? this top? Totally love these two items. The top is from Deep Antiquity which is a rad clothing company based out of Miami, FL. The eye bag/clutch is from Inu Inu - this shop has so many CUTE items up for sale right now.. ugh. Love. 

These are the only pair of jeans that I wear, they are super stretchy and feel like leggings which is a big plus since a requirement of my clothing is that I can fall asleep easily in them. Right? Like, we should all be able to be comfortable and fall asleep at the drop of a hat. (Well, that's at least MY opinion...). These platform boots are made by Volatile, but I think you can only purchase them on eBay now. They are one of my favorite pairs of shoes, cuz they are comfy as heck and platforms with a bit of height. INTO IT. I've had these babies for over three years?! Woah. Long shoe relationship there.

I hope you have a good weekend, I will be heading up north for a family reunion! (Wow, how Minnesotan can I be? Going "up north" that is like the most Minnesotan sentence.. I wish you all could hear my accent right now. "OOooOh yah, goin' up north, dontcha knoooow?") (Probably if you don't know anything about Minnesotan accents you are really confused right now. Sorry. Look it up, listen to Sarah Palin, or something...)

Take Care!

On the road again..

Hi! 
I am writing this post on my phone in some town in Iowa. I'm on a road trip to New Mexico with my parents right now. We will meet my boyfriend and his whole family in Northern New Mexico! We will be in New Mexico for a few days, and then my boyfriend and I are going to drive to LA! Yayyyyy.


Tie dye on tie dye has become a go-to for me lately.. (for instance I am currently wearing tie dye bellbottoms, a tie dye cropped tank, and the tie dye kimono jacket that is pictures below)





daisy choker - Marina Fini from Tunnel Vision
dress & kimono - etsy
platforms - Y.R.U. from Dolls Kill

I hope you have an enjoyable weekend!! I am really looking forward to taking lots of pictures on this trip! Take care.

AVID NOISE

I am always on the lookout for awesome shops - the kind of shop that fits with my worldviews. You know, rad/ girl run/ girl owned/ vintage/ DIY/ small business-y types. 

I recently found the blog/web shop combo: Avid Noise. Avid Noise is a "collection of vintage clothing inspired by the most influential and iconic women in rock". Right off the bat I am obviously into it. A vintage store based off of totally empowering badass women?! Genius.

As I delved deeper into the Avid Noise page I just became more and more excited. There are "collections" that are based off of famous rock ladies; The Courtney Collection, The Siouxie Collection, for example. The collections all have their very own vintage wardrobe according to who their rock legend is. Each collection is inspired and inspiring.

Who couldn't get down with this creative shop? Seriously. On top of the genius idea for a vintage shop the owner, Izzi Krombholz, musician herself, runs the blog "Women in Rock". Women in Rock goes hand in hand with Izzi's shop Avid Noise. She's been blogging on Women in Rock since 2012, and has features like "Songs of the Week", "Concert Reviews", and "Artist Spotlights". Izzi features famous rock goddesses and also lesser known musicians; all of them being rad as hell women.

Here is a small selection of some of my top favorite items from Avid Noise:
