I like to keep things real around here, so the outfits I share are ones I actually wear (for better or for worse!) and then I like to overshare regarding how they came about.

So here’s what happened:

On a Thursday night, I got to go to a Southwest + Chase secret show, by my all-time favorite musician, because sometimes life is cool. It was like my birthday party and wedding and idealized best life scenario that I dreamed up when I was 12, all rolled into one rustic barn. Here I am chatting with Andrew after the show like a total loony, in this photo I am literally saying “I met you at your show last Summer and I’m sorry I was such a dork!” I could be a professional fan girl. Also he is a really nice guy and that makes me an even bigger fan! But it’s totally platonic and an appreciation of his work. Andrew is happily married to Kelly and has a daughter named Cecelia. Here’s a playlist I made of his best work, imho, yw.

ANYWAY I had these big dreams of coming home and washing my hair (lol, that always loses first) and packing, but what actually happened was that I woke up on Friday like “Who am I? Was it all a dream?” and OH, I need to fly to California in 2 hours.

So then I put on all these clothes: hat for the hair I didn’t wash- check. Clunky shoes I want to wear to the wedding- check. Black jumpsuit that will transition from the plane to In-N-Out with my dad to a girl’s night- check. Can someone tell me how to fell about this outfit? Anyone? Carina? Is this hott mess express or just all over the place enough to look ~*styled*~

And then my bfflybff Steph was all “should I charge my camera so we can take some photos for your blog?” And I was like “giiirrrllll you tryna be best friends??” Before we took these, we also did an instructional beauty session (I was literally like “now WHERE should I be putting blush on my face?”) I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, hopefully I can do this by myself later. The people in my life KNOW how to LOVE me. It is a beautiful thing.

I was so idk about this outfit, but wasn’t gonna say NO to some blog pics, you know? I’d like to have a verdict by the time I’m posting these pictures and looking back at it. The only actual outfit notes I have are: I bought this hat for $1 at the flea market and I have yet to spend a better dollar, and isn't this jacket amazing?? I think an oversized Levi's jacket is best found at a vintage store/market (where I found mine) so keep your eyes peeled! I am obsessed, 100%.

I’ve also been consuming just about as much Man Repeller/Leandra Medine’s style as I possibly can, and this is another blog post all together, but I’ve been thinking about her when I get dressed. Half of the things she wears ARE outlandish, and I can’t say I would wear them; but i LOVE that there’s a concept and a look behind it. I respect that. And the thing that’s most apparent is she wears what she truly WANTS and does not G A F.

What is the concept and the look behind this outfit? Maybe something like “How is it possible that my friends are having babies and I can hardly take care of myself?” Just kidding. Maybe like island hipster Joanna Gaines. What do you think?

By the way, this is what I actually look like:
