I cannot tell you how long I have waited to wear all black again. Summer is cool and all, but the light and bright colors just ain’t my thing. What is my thing is ALL BLACK. #alldayeveryday
No, but seriously…I love black. You can ask my coworkers. I wear black probably 4 out of the 5 days that I work. I wear it so much people probably think I wear the same exact outfit every single day. Black just makes you look put together, chic and did I mention slimmer? Who doesn’t love that?
I was in Little Tokyo during the summer and my good friend who I stole this dress from, was looking at a green bomber. I had always wanted a BLACK bomber – so hence, that’s how I got this nifty little jacket. I have been waiting so long to wear it and now, I can wear it! It’s supposed to “rain” today in LA. Do I believe it is going to “rain?” No, but you can bet that I will be wearing boots and this bomb ass bomber!
Also, I must mention that I am wearing my new Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl. I will be doing a review very soon on the items I bought during my haul, but it’s my new Fall Lip Color and I love it!

I LOVE abandoned buildings. I don’t know what it is, but whenever I pass one – I can’t help but wonder why it’s been abandoned and what spirits may be in there. Once I was in the Pismo Beach area and there is this beautiful 3 story white colonial house on a hill that’s been abandoned. The windows are boarded up and the paint is coming off. After driving by it few times, I finally drove to it so I could explore. Well, a big fence kept me out, but I asked a few locals about the story behind it. Supposedly the owner went completely crazy and put cement in all their pipes. Back when I was in my early 20’s, that was just the most fascinating thing ever. It’s probably not true whatsoever but when I’m in the area, I still always look for it and stare in awe at the mystery of its past.
Well, when I went looking for a place this weekend to take some photos – I stumbled upon what appears to be a few abandoned buildings and immediately fell in love! The sun was about to set, the buildings looked dilapidated and it turned out to be THE perfect backdrop from my Summer Trench photoshoot.
However, after walking around a bit – it looks like it’s just a strawberry and onion farm. The buildings probably aren’t really abandoned but it’s okay…
I wore this green trench vest in my Runaway Railroad post when I first started this blog, and it is still one of my favorite pieces to throw on to give my outfit that extra edge. My striped tank is from Madewell and I already own it in 3 colors. It’s the perfect tank to just throw on with some jeans and run errands. It’s long in the middle and short on the sides – the best cut in my opinion. AND it’s on SALE! Oh, and those pointy-toe heels? Great Italian leather at an even better price! Working in the shoe industry for a decade, I can tell you – there are some great brands out there who use really nice leather but assemble in China to keep the cost down. So don’t judge the quality just because of where they’re made.
I think I’m going to be living in this outfit for the rest of the summer – if only it would stop being over 90 degrees in Southern California…..
