Traveling in Flocks


Here's a peak into my backyard. It connects to a million other backyards of my other neighbors so there isn't that much privacy. I'm pretty sure there was at least one other person watching me take my self-portraits. It was nice when I was younger though and still went outside to play. We would have a giant baseball game in my backyard (I couldn't pitch but I definitely could swing!) and some of the other kids in the neighbor would see and run across all the backyards to join. I miss playing outside like that and just being reckless. These days my summers are a lot more busy.


(tank forever 21, belt forever 21, jeans forever 21, wedges seychelles)

Is it just me or is that tree a little bit of a phallic symbol?  Inappropriate? Yes.

I'm heading into the city tomorrow and I'm hitching a ride with my friend. I'm meeting one of my best friends for lunch who has an internship near wall street. Afterwards I'll probably wander around the city looking for great vintage and/or thrift stores and picking up a scarf for my friend from a street vendor. Any suggestions on great places to get cheap vintage in the city? I never know where to go and google isn't much of a help. It's always great to get advice straight from actual residents. :)


This shirt was supposed to be a dynamic duo piece but it sold out online before Jasmine could get her hands on it! It's not even available in stores either. I love it so much, especially since it's miu miu inspired. Don't worry though, we have a few Dynamic Duos in store for you guys this summer and I'm so excited! I just have to get myself to a beach first. I only live an hour away from the shore but schedules have been conflicting and the weather has been a mess. And who wants to go to the shore alone? Maybe if I lived right next to it. Otherwise the one hour drive down and back up gets to be a bore and quite tiresome.

Well I better get some sleep since I have to wake up in a few hours to head to the city. If only my throat wasn't so sore. It makes falling asleep and waking up a pain in the butt.

  1. Such a cute tank, I love all these Miu Miu-inspired stuff! Whoa I was about to say that your backyard is HUGE by itself, but I guess it makes sense to be that big if it's connected to others. Aww that's too bad, I love you and Jasmine's dynamic duo posts! Can't wait for the next one :) Have fun in the city!

  5. I love these shirts with swallow prints! I adore yours! Looks great on you!
    My opinion about Forever21 is, that they always produce less of the nicest shirts they got!

  11. this look is so much fun! there are no boundaries in fashion but pulling off navy blue, black and brown together and look great is hard, but you did it!

  12. Oh, I'm so mad that shirt sold out! I've seen so many girls wearing a shirt similar to it. I think the other one is from Zara. You look so cute in it!

  13. I really love the bird print. I've been looking for something with that print for myself for ages.

    Can't wait for the dynamic duo stuff.

  15. Hahahaha, that is indeed a phallic symbol.
    And I love that top! Anything Miu MIu inspired has been catching my eye lately :)

  16. You were so lucky to get that tank top - it's so pretty and the print is great (of course!).

    And the brown wedges and belt look perfect (I love how the belt is doubled at the front - I never know what to do with the 'end' of the belt).

  18. LOL @ the tree! It's not just you, I also think it looks like that, hahaha..

    On a more appropriate topic, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this outfit. Seriously, I want to wear the exact same outfit now! The top is indeed MiuMiu-inspired. I'm sure it's much cheaper than the Zara's version :) And the wedges? oh so beautiful. I love how you mix black and brown. Who says they don't belong together? :D

    Have fun in NYC!

  19. I love your top a lot -- it's gorgeous.

    As for NYC places, I've had some luck at Beacon's Closet in Brooklyn. There are two locations (I think I went to the smaller one), but they had some reasonably priced jewelry and clothes.

  20. I own that shirt! I bought it in the smallest size but it's still pretty big and drapey... I've belted it like you and also tucked it into a high-waisted skirt...and it looks good sloppily tucked into pegged boyfriend jeans, too!

    Oh. And I'm positive I own those skinny jeans from F21. $10? Yeah.

  24. is it crazy that if i had gotten this top i would've brown-belted it too?!??!?!?! omg. this top IS gorgeous! i seriously can't get over how i missed it :( especially when i was the one who picked it out. ugh ugh ugh. there's still a shimmer of hope in me that it will pop up in stores one day...you know the saying: "it'll come when you least expect it/when you're not looking." or i'm just gonna have to get a zara counter-part...sigh!

    anyway, HAVE FUN IN THE CITY<3 and if you really can't make it to the beach we can switch locations. i know we definitely both have easy access to powerlines hehe :)
