Cowboys and Dinosaurs

I feel like I'm not a seasonal dresser.  I wear white after labor day, bright colors and dresses in winter, and sometimes I focus on darker hues in summer.  But here is a spring look for y'all!  This ModCloth shirt is one of my favorite shirts, EVER.  (See similar ones HERE.)  It's printed, it's fitted, and I'm just obsessed with the colors.  I was last seen in this shirt on a Just Shair video discussing the sillier aspects of autumn.  Check it out (HERE) if you haven't seen it/want to see this shirt in motion.  (Yes, it's now spring, but break the rules, ha! Besides, making fun of gourds is timeless!)

The rest of the outfit I just played with the colors that are on the shirt to make everything pop.  I did a lot of pink accessories with my Kate Spade T-Rex bag/earrings and Punky Pins dino necklace.  Originally I was going to wear green heels but opted for summer wedges by Nine West since it was getting warmer out!  Yay!  The skirt is from Hell Bunny.  It's the Paula and I'm obsessed and have most colors it comes in.  You can see me most recently wearing the yellow one HERE.  They wrinkle easily, but other than that I have zero complaints are they are so versatile and classic!  Having built up my novelty print shirt collection I've been focusing more on these solid bad boys as you can't always mix prints!

Thanks for stopping by!  I've had a busy week with unexpected company the past week, but am still planning to launch a second blog on culture over the next week or so.  The best places to catch that are on my NEW Facebook page that I've barely touched so far but will be using a ton in the future, or Instagram/Twitter with their NEW handle names, @blairosaurus.  Plus all of them have updates for THIS blog, so it's definitely worth following to stay in the loop!  Have a great day, Internet friends!

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!

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 …

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!  …
