Midi Skirts & Crop Tops in the Summer

Happy Monday!  How was everyone's weekend?  Mine was pretty excellent!  In addition to being in the middle of working on a comedy project with some friends I'm also starting a band with one of the people involved in the comedy project.  We've been half joking and half serious about it for a few weeks, but this weekend we finally got together and talked about what we wanted out of the band (we have the same vision so yay!) and jammed out a little plus workshopped out a few song ideas.  I'm going to be the singer, but am in the process of re-teaching myself the guitar.  It's been years since I've played it and was never an expert player, so trying to figure it all out again just to help write songs and such is an interesting but exciting experience.  For now I was mostly picking out notes on the keyboard to go along with his bass rifts as I'm better at piano.  (We'll be finding a more proficient guitar player once we work out some kinks about what we want, like genre and some other details we're debating).  
If you've followed my blog last summer you'll remember that I love midi skirts with crop tops.  I think it's classy but sexy, without being trashy.  I typically like to show off skin without showing off too much skin and I find this style a great way of doing so.  It also feels very pinup-y, which is a style I draw inspiration from without going full on pinup.  What's your guys styling secrets to keeping cool but fun in the summer?

  12. This is such a cute outfit. I too love the contrast of a long skirt + crop top. It's the perfect summer outfit. Especially to go from daytime heat to nighttime cool. Perfection.

Go CUBS!

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

Ocean Front Members Only

Is this a style post only I could bring you or what?  Not only did I mix prints (three times, as the Forever 21 shirt is gingham, the ModCloth briefcase is dinosaur printed, and my true vintage skirt is an ocean front border print!) but I'm mixing vintage with modern fashion.  It seems that many vintage-y bloggers tend to stray from any trends, which is silly to me because these bomber jackets are SO comfortable and practical for between seasons weather (and frankly, Members Only IS a vintage brand)!  I tied this whole look together with using the Members Only Satin Washed Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy with these platform heels from Amazon by Dadawen.  I feel the burgundy bookends bounce off the greens and blues nicely.

How's everyone's week been?  Thanks for allowing me to take a week off!  Not only did I have obligations at the Comedy Central Stage and the Upright Citizen's Brigade stage this week, but I was hosting one of my very best friends who came to visit me!  …

Comedy and Tragedy

It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times.  I generally hate cliche quotes that can easily be slapped on memes or on the coffee mug of a basic b!tch, but I'm hard pressed to find a better phrase to describe my life currently.  In short: I've been having the most fun that I've ever had in the eight months since I moved to LA, but then the emergency breaks got slammed on my life when my mother fell gravely ill and passed away two weeks later on June 6th.  
I'm currently back in LA, after being gone for three weeks.  I'm looking forward to continuing my comedy journey, as I feel it will save me from myself at this time.  But while I'm functioning okay as I'm still in a great deal of shock and my current mode is auto pilot, certain hours of the day prove to me that I'm very jumbled up and confused about my mom's passing.  I suddenly don't know what I'm in for and I don't know what I'm doing.
Not knowing what I'm doing …
