I've really been loving the long/full skirt trend lately, and when I found this particular skirt in my mother's closet I was very tempted to wear it! It's funny to me how often I change my mind about different styles of clothing, for example how not too long ago I was wearing a tight, zippered mini-skirt and now I'm wearing a below the knee drawstring skirt. But I guess that's just how trends work and how things go! 
As you can probably notice, my hair is much shorter! I mentioned a couple posts earlier that I got the chop on my birthday, and since then I've been absolutely loving it! My hair is much easier to manage, and it feels very light which is great. The only downside is whenever I attempt to put it in a ponytail all the short bits fall out and it looks a bit silly. Who knows, maybe I can start a half up half down ponytail trend!

Antoni & Alison




Not long ago I was walking around Venice with family who was visiting, and my cousin and I couldn't help but fall in love with sweaters they were selling in a store (unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the store, just that it was on Abbot Kinney). The short sleeved knits were decorated with bright colors, bubble letters, and were so soft I couldn't keep my hands off them. One sweater that I especially liked was a creme color with the word Hollywood in a bright banana yellow and a red bow draping around the sweater's neck. I was eager to figure out who was making these wonderful sweaters, and it turned out to be a company called Antoni & AlisonAfter looking them up and browsing through all the beautiful pieces on their website, I couldn't help but fall in love with this London-based brand.
