coffee (actually chai) with alexis and tessa to plan a clothing swap... if you are in l.a. and interested in joining us hit me up.  by the way casbah has the best chai.

i really need to get out more... i'm such a bookworm vampyre haha

sooooo... this outfit... is just a normal get up for running around town and such.  it's very me.  i would have preferred it with boots, but it was hot and well i wanted to be light footed and quick (yes, these are things i think about)...  so do you blog your regular outfits or do you plan outfits?  do you change your shoes because they create better lines in your photos?  i find that blogging has definitely made me more comfortable with dressing how i want.  there was a phase where i wondered if certain looks were "bloggable" or interesting... but that ended QUICKLY.  and now i feel like it's given me a freedom to be as unique and as loud as that may or may not be.  i just kind of don't really care about all that other stuff.  basically i guess i've come full circle.  wow insightful.

yep, definately need to get my ass down to where ever you are here, that sale rail is making me jealous!

Maaaaaaan I wish I could have been there (GIANT SAD FACE).

Alecto said...

And to answer your questions:

1.) I don't ever plan any outfits. Sometimes I plan/want to wear something particular so I will have an article of clothing in mind but the end result is mostly spontaneous.

2.) I have never changed my shoes to create better lines in photographs but I do change for comfort purposes or because, like yourself, it's damn hot outside and sweaty feet are less than desirable.

I think you look amazing all the time. It doesn't hurt that you are an incredibly beautiful woman and look like a character out of a Francesca Lia Block novel...

I love your outfit!It's casual and colorful, and real. You are SUCH a beauty! I love the photo with the flowers in the foreground!
I haven't done much outfit posting but I definitely don't plan them. I would really like my blog to be a scrapbook of my life (with some interesting art and inspiration thrown in)Much like you I like to capture the moments as I'm living them, not planning them. It's not as fun :)
It's so great that you're having a clothing swap! I had never heard of them until I moved to Portland. If I was still in SoCal I'd be there in a heart beat!

P.S.
those are some wise words to end with!

YES can't wait for this clothing swap, and the opportunity to meet a bunch of awesome girls.

"i guess in the end i want my blog to be me, i don't want to be my blog" you rock at life, because this is the perfect sentiment. I think theres a danger of blogging to please others rather than to do it for ourselves. Go team authenticity.

little moon lover said...

digging the look!
I don't plan outfits, actually, if you've seen my blog, I don't usually post photos of myself with differnt outfits.. only when I'm wearing stuff I designed and made... but I never have someone taking me photos nor the time to snap them while working and busy on errands around town etc.. I would like to increase these kinds of posts though.. but first I need a better camera, a free photographer haha.. stay cool!

Marlena said...

im so in love with this post it's crazy- i love the pictures! and what you're wearing. i bought round sunglasses like that just last week and refuse to put them down. love your style

Liana said...

totally loving this outfit, so cool and casual and those leggings rock. yeah, as i get more into blogging, i definitely want it to reflect my personal style, not the style that others expect to see..it seems like there are certain expectations of fashion bloggers to wear a certain brand or dress a certain way, but i say there are not enough truly unique fashion bloggers who don't conform to the typical standards and we need to change that!

ps. i totally wish i could do the clothing swap but i don't live close enough! ;(

Wild Flower said...

Amen to that sista! Hey love the mix going on here, those glasses are the beez kneez and you've inspired me to paint my toe nails black (do my fingers black but haven't tried the toes), anyway all the best for clothes swap, sounds great. X

J. said...

Great top and sandals! (Yup, bloggable!) Anyway, I guess I only post looks that I feel are special but that keeps me from becoming a slave to the whole MUST GET DRESSED FOR MY BLOG thing...I get dressed for me...

Magnet said...

hahaha, that's such a good ting to say! about not wanting to be your blog. I never plan my outfits for my blog, unless I genuinely want to, like sometimes I just enjoy dressing up, but I'd do stuff like that even if I didn't have a blog. I post all my outfits, even the 'boring' outfits, even the outfits I don't really like. It's just a way for me to document everything I wear.. and my thoughts.

The leggings are so cool, really lovely outfit!!

Shevah said...
