Melrose, Melrose, Melrose-you never let me down! Around every corner I always find outlandish, charming, often strange but also stunning backgrounds to shoot outfit posts against. My mom and I came across this wonderful Hair Salon where the owner, Jose Abdo, does all the beautiful, modern artwork himself! This quaint shop had the most fascinating and colorful paintings and it was inspiring to just wander around the shop and to see his artwork painted against the walls outside where we shot these photos.

It’s an understatement to say that I am obsessed with my pink [SIC] Apparel crop top tank. Since it’s summer and I still have a little tan going from being in Arizona last weekend, this top compliments my skin perfectly and I adore the fun and colorful illustrations on the front. I can never have enough comfy tank tops and tees, especially for summer when my style takes a turn for the casual. [SIC] Apparel always has not only the comfiest but the trendiest shirts that can be thrown over a bathing suit when heading to the beach or a pool party, or can be dressed up a bit with a high waisted skirt and little booties. I also love how the tank falls off my shoulder a bit-super cute and playful. Check out their site here for more surfer chic styles: http://sicapparel.com/
These high waisted cut off dark denim shorts I bought from Zara and they could quite possibly be my favorite purchase so far this summer! I love how stretchy they are and how they are slightly shorter on the sides, elongating my legs. It’s hard to find a good pair of denim high waisted shorts that fit and are also flattering at the same time. These were perfect, affordable and a total must-have.
I have been eyeing these Topshop boots for about four months now and last week I finally had the courage (an enough money saved up) to go buy them. Knowing that I had saved the money and spent a lot of time thinking about buying them made the whole process that more exciting and fulfilling!
Like I’ve said in the past-give me a pair of black booties ANYDAY and I’ll be happy!
More photos and adventures to come but until next time…
