Yo, summer, take a hike. I swore I wouldn’t be the person to complain about the warm weather that makes my cheeks all rosy & beautiful sunshine & I am here to tell you that this is not me becoming that person because I AM here to complain about the bajillion degree weather & a sweltering, roasting, yellow round ball in the sky that used to be a friend of mine. When it is 90 degrees at 9AM in Newport Beach California & AC is not an option, you get more than enough wiggle room to start complaining about it. So this is me making ends meet with this endless summer. Bree & I were lucky enough to be able to collaborate with the babes over at Windsor not once, but twice. If you can’t tell already I am a little romper obsessed. . .I just love a good romp + playsuit, whichever you prefer. I was drawn to the pattern of this one & thought that it would be the perfect playsuit to transition from summer to fall. . .well this is when I thought there would actually be a fall, #fallfail. Its cutesy, but also has a hint of sexy with a tie front closure, & an open back. In the end, I adore it really. I fall-i-fide it with adding my most prize possession, my leather jacket, my favorite black hat, & some simple black boots.
But going back to my prize possession, I have to tell you guys how I came across this gem. It was meant for me in all honesty. One day when I was living in Los Angeles my sister called me up & invited me to a Clippers game. I of course could NOT turn her down, but I could however turn down everything in my closet & come to the conclusion that I had nothing to wear so I just had to go to Wasteland for a new vintage tee. . .go figure. As soon as I walked in there it was, perfectly placed first on the rack. Now, like I said before, I was going in for a vintage tee, not a vintage leather jacket that was normally priced at $800. . .go figure. . .again. After trying it on, taking photos, sending them to my sister, doing about a million turns in the mirror (I hope I’m not the only one who does this when buying something), & chatting it up with the sales associate who then told me that he literally just put it out today, I closed my eyes & checked the price tag. $100.00 BIRDS, one hundo, compared to $800. . .needless to say it’s been mine ever since & it is one of the best purchases I have EVER made. The End.

as previously stated, my leather jacket is from The Wasteland + I suggest going vintage shopping & just diving head first until you find your very own that you fall completely in love with
