Sup guys. I'm going back home to STL for my brothers graduation. Woo hoo. My boyfriend's brother is also graduating the same day so we'll be hitting up KC to celebrate with his family as well. It's gonna be a great vacation filled with family and friends. Shit. will. pop. off. Only the good shit though. Oh yeaa.
This is an outfit I styled from random pieces in my closet. I mostly merge old and new things to create new looks. I could entertain myself in my room for days on end just making up new outfits. Now I just have to figure out where I'm going to wear this.
Jacket: Thrift Store Find
Socks: Urban Outfitters
Bag: Urban Expressions

Solange takes the cover of latest issue of Complex magazine. Rocking her signature fro, Solange glows in cute one pieces and hot pants. Photographed by Juco. She's wearing Gottex, Amaya Arzuaga, and Eres with Christian Louboutin heels.
I've seen her perform twice this year: once at SXSW and just last weekend at Sweetlife, and she was great and full of energy both times. She also just announced that she's starting a new record label named "Saint Records." Her upcoming album will also be released from this label and distributed through Sony. Exciting news for the youngest Knowles.
Head on over to Complex for the full interview.

Hellllooo friends! I went to the Sweetlife Music and Food Festival this past Saturday in DC with my boyfriend. Wanted to update you guys sooner, but I came down with something. Getting better though...punk ass colds. Oh! Anywho, the festival was awesome. This is my second year going and I'd definitely recommend it if you're in the DC area. 20,000 people showed up this year! They featured artists like Kendrick Lamar, Solange, Phoenix, Gary Clark Jr, and Passion Pit. It was an awesome time.
So judging from what I know about festival attire, I wore that little bitty above. I ordered up a bunch of clothes a couple weeks ago. (I kinda only shop at thrift stores or online unless I'm out of town.) And this is some of the stuff I got. These geometric black and white leggings are from Forever 21. First of all, I love them. They're super stretchy and kind've high waisted, which gives you tons of coverage. Nothing falling out of those, I tell ya. Wore those with a high-low top also from Forever 21. The tail is sheer (there's a pic at the bottom.)
The creepers are from GoJane, the bag is by Lionel, and the woven hat is a thrift store find that I adore. I have definite plans for this hat this year. And I'm having fun with black and white. It's just seems bold among all the colors, and a little wrong for Spring. Yet oh so right. And I went with two different earrings this time. I was really feeling the vibe it gave me, so you'll see more of that too.
Keep scrolling for more outfit and Sweetlife Festival pics.

Hola mi gente! (I speak Spanish way too much to be part Italian.) My style can be kinda crazy at times, so this outfit was intended to be a little more clean and relateable. But still fun.
I'm wearing a random assortment of arm candy in different sizes and colors. My bag is Steve Madden. I wear it all the time because you can just sling it around your shoulder or wear it on your arm with the shorter straps. It's also has tons of gold studs along the front. The top is a thrift store find, and I'm not sure where the khakis are from, but they're mad comfy. Shoes by Michael Kors.
Oh and I love the sparkly nail polish. I got it for $1 on sale at Urban Outfitters and I don't want to ever take it off.
Have a good weekend.
I'll be at the Sweetlife Music Festival in DC going bonkers.
