All About the Outfit!
Look at me, again in shorts!  Haha.  I do wear non-dress/skirt stuff but it rarely makes it's way to the blog.  These shorts have zebras all over it (sorry for lack of better detailed pics!  This shoot was something along the lines of a "comedy of errors") and I'm a sucker for anything safari themed.  Because the zebras embroidered onto the shorts are small, it was easy to mix prints with a striped shirt and actual zebra striped shoes!  I like shorts this time of year with long sleeves because you can still keep warm but flirt with the weather getting warmer.

Style Details:
Necklace- Punky Pins
Shirt- Gap
Brooch- Erstwilder
Shorts- J Crew via Poshmark
Shoes- Ralph Lauren via Marshalls

Motivational Mondays:
Remember, things ebb and flow in life.  Sometimes we really do go through sucky patches.  But often times things turn a corner, whether it's subtle or whether it's overnight.  Try to be mindful of that when things aren't going your way!

Music Time!
Wahoo!  I get to talk about The Breeders again!  (I've been on a major Breeders kick this spring!) I think they're the most underrated band of the 90s, in regards to nostalgia factor and what people immediately remember upon thinking about the 90s.  Here's a song of theirs, appropriately called "Safari" for my zebra themed outfit.  It really shows off the beauty of Kim Deal's vocals, so it's a worth a listen if you haven't heard it!  Happy Monday everyone!

  1. Such a cute white shorts and striped shirt combo!

  2. Ahhh you look so cute, Lauren! And your shorts have zebras on them?! How cute is that? I love that you paired them with zebra print wedges too! :)


  3. Love these blush shorts! They are too cute with the striped shirt!

  4. It would've been nice to see the zebra's up close but I can make them out and either way that's a fun print! I've always kinda liked zebras and I like how it's actual zebras instead of just the typical zebra print you normally see.


  5. Oh, how cute are these shorts!

  6. cute, love the color of those shorts!

  12. These zebras on your shorts are so adorable, I really like them and Lauren, honestly, you should wear shorts more often, you have great legs, dear!

  13. This is such a cute outfit, Lauren! I adore your shirt and those shorts are too cute! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!

  15. nice look...ideal for spring!!! I like so much your shoes:very originals

  16. Shorts and a longsleeved shirt is such a perfect combination! I'm loving all the black and white in this outfit, along with the subtle pink of the shorts!

  17. The zebra theme is so cool! Loving the shoes, obsessed!


  18. These zebra shorts are seriosuly cute! I love the zebra wedges too. They really stand out. Haha, you know, I do wear non skirt/dresses too, but that stuff doesn't always appear on my blog. Occasionally it will. Are zebras your favorite zoo type animal?

  19. I love these shorts. You look so adorable in this outfit. Also, your hair looks amazing. You will have to start sharing some of your beauty secrets with the rest of us. What do you think? Also, what do you think about scalloped shorts? They are trending, but I haven't made a decision as to whether I like them or not just yet. Have you tried them on?

  20. So fun! I love the zebra shoes with this outfit, your zebra brooch and of course the cute little zebras on your shorts! So cute!

  21. Very fun outfit! Your Erstwilder brooch is slaying me. I'm such a huge fan of their adorable + chic offerings.

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 …
