What I Wore | Views from DTLA

Exploring downtown in style

Over the last five years that I've been in Los Angeles, downtown has experienced exponential growth. There are new bars and restaurants opening up left and right, more apartment buildings, and new areas (like my current neighborhood, the Arts District) are expanding as we speak. I love that I've gotten to know DTLA so well over the past few years, thanks to its proximity to USC, and I love that even now I'm still exploring new places to go and new sights to see.

Spring Trends Under $100

Good clothes don't have to cost a fortune

There are so many cute spring trends to try, but even though I'm officially getting that payday as a working girl (didn't you hear? I got a job!) I'm not exactly rollin' in the dough (yet). So yes, I want to wear embroidered denim and open-toed mules, but I don't want to break the bank trying to be fashionable either.

What I Wore | Pink & Pom Poms

Every Barbie needs a pink dress!

Happy spring, friends! Oh, what a glorious time spring is. The clock has sprung forward, the sun is out, and the weekends are oh so fun. Now that I've officially started that working girl life (you read that right, Mission #HiretheFashionBarbie was a success!) I'm definitely appreciating my weekends more, and when the weather is this nice, it's not hard to!

The Sunglasses Trend You'll Either Love or Hate

There is no middle ground

I love sunglasses. They're a simple accessory that has the power to change the feel of a whole outfit, and there are so many shapes, colors, and styles to choose from! I guess I have a good face shape for sunglasses, too, because most of the time they don't look awkward on me (except for those rounded Ray-Bans that everyone has, they make me look like John Lennon and not in a cool way). 

So when a new sunglasses trend takes over, I take notice. I obsessed over the Dior So Real shades that everyone wore last year. I was ecstatic when my mom found her old wayfarers from the 80s at the height of that trend a few years back (Vintage! So cool). And now, I'm noticing a new trend that people seem to either absolutely adore or completely loathe: oval sunglasses.
