That awkward moment when you’re trying to go for a boho chic look and it starts pouring in the middle of July. In LA. Anyway, my friend Danielle Gumina just started her own line of handbags (griphandbags.com) and won a contest with InStyle Magazine. I think the design is so clever. I usually hate clutches because I have to place them under my arm and I keep dropping them all night long. This clutch is functional. The stones are super good quality—cheap rhinestones are a pet peeve of mine! I can’t wait to see what other colors and variations she creates. I visualize myself wearing an all gray one with a white pant suit…actually, even this one with a white pantsuit…basically, I love white pant suits.

In other news, I have added to my denim skirt collection with this One Teaspoon number and I’m in love. It’s versatile and screams “I’m so LA and I know fashion.” I can’t wait to dress it up with a pointy nude heel, red lip and statement earrings.

These shoes suck. I waited so long for them and was wondering why no other brands were making over the knee tie up gladiators and then I realized it’s because they don’t stay up! It’s like *one step, fall, tie again, repeat*. They do make for fab photos though. I feel like Khaleesi.

 photo IMG_7989 copy.jpg I’m finally 21! It’s such a relief. I got carded a couple times last night and I was like “yup, damn straight I’m of age” and skedaddled on in. It was a liberating experience.
I had dinner at my favorite spot, Fig & Olive in West Hollywood which has been a birthday tradition since I was 18.
I went with a pant suit because I’m progressive AF and can’t fall into societal constraints (lol). I was inspired by Hailey Baldwin’s look from Cannes, I feel like the choker made this look more modern. This outfit though, was like the most uncomfortable outfit of my life. I could barely breathe. I had to alter the pants and make them tighter because apparently my waist to hip ratio is colossal. With that and the heels, I was probably walking around like a flamingo last night.
Anyway, my birthday weekend continues tonight–dinner with my parents and then Exchange LA tomorrow eeeep.

Happy Birthday ‘merica

Last year, I was in London for the fourth so I’ve been deprived of BBQ-ed chicken and fireworks. I couldn’t go to any parties (or basically have any fun) because of my two summer classes. So my fourth consisted of studying and these photos basically. Oh and, I TURN 21 IN 4 DAYS.
