Overcast on a summer’s day. Sleepy, squinty eyes. Comfortable attire and catching up over brunch with some good friends. With the latter taken place, the day’s not all too bad. So what, the leopard may be a bit much for some but I’m a sucker for harem pants and toned down with cozy neutrals, I can dig it.

If you haven’t noticed by now, I’ve been on a ever long streak of not shopping so all the previous and future posts will most likely be outfits utilizing what I already own. Don’t get me wrong since I’ve made a few misdemeanors, purchasing some newbies so it’s all about self control. Sadly, I believe that all the money I’ve saved myself from shopping is counteracted by my food consumption… and that’s another topic up for discussion.

I can’t wait for a wardrobe revamp but until then, this whole not buying new, has really pushed me to flip my drawers, trying to style pieces together. It’s a fun challenge I’ve accepted where I have my days when I think “why the hell did I buy this” and days when I’m like “oh yeah… forgot how cute this was”. Point is, it allows me be more aware, economical and sustainable to our environment. Rather than constantly in with the new-new, I’m a big advocate for thrifting (before the thrift shop song popularizing it) and just finding ways to ‘recycle’ your clothing – whether it be re-thinking how you wear it, turning things into a DIY project, donating, etc. Hope it can inspire you to dig through your closet and pay a visit to some of the old and mixing it with your new.

Gap denim biker jacket, Collective Concepts tee, Nordstrom skirt, Old Navy stripe shirt (similar), Louis Vuitton Speedy30 bag, Ego and Greed shoes (similar)

Just a quick little hash-tag outfit of the day post. Ive been trying to squeeze as much time with my BFF before she leaves me for.. kinda, forever! It’s bizarre to fathom the idea of a long distance relationship, haha. Lesbihonest, when it comes to speaking about friendships, especially at a best friend level, does it not equate and automatically rank the BFF at par to a BF? Acronym overload. That aside, I’m pleased and zealous for all that she’ll pursue. Definitely motivation and a driver to push myself out of my comfort zone. Current thought bubbles are forming with brainstorms and re-evaluations in the works! Like a pop of color, my thoughts will often times be candid and random so bare with me. In due time, like my red striped shirt I tied on my waist, it’ll come in handy *tongue out emoji*

a break away

Since I didn’t partake in the bay to breakers madness this year, to avoid the traffic, we decided to break away to another part of the bay – crossing the bridge. Just our luck, we arrive with post graduation gatherings when trying to find parking and seating for brunch in Berkeley. None the less, it was a gorgeous day out. So nice and sunny, hence me tucking in my sleeves in attempt to do what I call “city tanning” aka making do of getting as much sun exposure as possible! Non-stop food exploration from brunch to ice cream, to brewskis at the homie’s and grabbing hotdogs. I tried to bring the hippie meets modern everyday casual feel with me by rocking the red biker jacket with fringes all through the back and sleeves; it was a random F21 find and I love it. Plus, the leather-weaved flats that I thrifted years ago have such a down to earth look and unfortunately are slowly breaking apart. Oh, and excuse the wrinkly shorts.. I hate when that happens. Don’t you?
