not in love

I have been meaning to publish this post for a little while now. Luckily, I had a bit of free time in between studying for finals and writing essays to actually do it. Over Thanksgiving Break, I spent a few days with my sister in Las Vegas. She has been pretty obsessed with photography lately and decided to take a few completely impromptu shots of me at a street corner on the Strip.  I ended up actually liking  a few of them, thus the inception of this blog post.

Since the weather has begun dipping into lower temperatures I can finally make use of my sweaters. This one in particular is a favorite of mine. I find the pattern very euphoric, with its depiction of a warm sunset with roaring waves and palm trees blowing in the wind. It makes for a very California inspired look in the heart of Sin City.

I scored these boots from Opening Ceremony in August for over 70% off. One could say that it was my greatest accomplishment over the summer. They have a bit of a western flare to them, and the rust color is adaptable to any outfit. They and the sweater are accompanied by two wardrobe staples of mine, these black skinny jeans and my reptile embossed backpack.

Contrary to the title of this article I am in love. These sunglasses are probably my favorite thing in the world right now. The 90s Cobain style exudes California and creates a cohesive vibe when paired with the sweater. They are incredibly versatile as well. Not only do they work for a casual laid back outfit such as this, but they would pair well with an edgy eclectic look or one that is more sophisticated and refined . You will definitely being seeing a lot more of these on the blog.
