At the moment, I'm really liking breezy, white tops that are impossibly thin. I've always preferred long sleeve tops, so these soft blouses from Ann Taylor LOFT were an easy choice for me. These tops have to be a bit less sloppy looking than a t-shirt, right? And really all I want right now is to look like I'm dressing up without the effort of actually dressing up.

Awhile I go, I think I mentioned I've been into lucite and holographic things lately. When I saw this bag at Daiso for only $1.50, I bought it pretty quickly. It's just a fun purse and for the price, I really can't complain. I feel like I should have bought another one to DIY with, but that's ok. The necklace was also fairly inexpensive and it's very pretty/unique. It reminds me of the jewelry Coach used to do.
All of these are from a thrift store that I've now forgotten the name of, but I was surprisingly able to find a lot that fit me. These are just basics to replace my other ones that have holes in them and such except for the Helmut Lang top in the middle. The shirt from Twentee is incredibly soft, while the Calvin Klein button up will be good for layering under sweaters during the winter. Sorry, I haven't been blogging recently. I've been at a journalism camp ac CSU Long Beach, so I've been too tired to comment on your blogs. On the bright side, have you ever wondered what I sound like and how awkward I am on camera? If so, this video of me with some friends from reporter, Andrew Edwards, is the video for you!


  1. love the Helmut Lang tee!! love the cut! have fun at your journalism camp!

  2. Love the basis shirts

  3. I too love shirts that make me look like I am dressed up but are very comfortable too :)

  4. Looking dressy without the effort is definitely the right idea!
    You sound exactly like I imagined you would :D

  5. Those basic shirts are great, I especially love the dark grey one in the middle :)

  6. Nice breezey blouses, LOVE that Daiso bag and the thrifted items c: Xx

  7. Super post !

  8. I also like the basics :) you can't have enough!

  9. Hah! I'm actually wearing a thin, white and long sleeved shirt right now. I'm loving that kind of style for summer! :)

  10. Thin shirts are so nice for when it's hot out like this! It's difficult for me to find some that don't stretch out after a few wears though. :P

  11. Lisa-Thanks! Journalism camp was surprisingly nothing like camp. It felt more like school than anything...

    Aga Guerrero Olesinska-Thank you! ^3^

    fhenny-Thanks and best of luck with your giveaway!

    Launna-They're the best things, right? No work, no effort, but still looking good? Perfect!

    prancing bee-Haha, I'm glad I didn't disappoint? :D

    Mimi Tran-Same! I was surprised at how well it fit.

    Ice Pandora-The Daiso purse is such a surprise right? (:

    Patrycja-Thank you so much!

    MayClover-And they never get old!

    Janet Taylor-Thank you!

    Nina Emelie-Coincidence? Or possibly two great minds think alike? They're just so comfortable and perfect for the weather that you can't possibly avoid them.

    Ali Hval-Try getting them from places like Zara and Ann Taylor LOFT? Also, look at what type of fabric the top is made out of. I usually get cotton or silk tops that don't wear out too easily.


I love hearing what you have to say! Please leave a comment! ♥
