Wrangler + Dinosaurs

First things first: did you know Wranger is in the midst of celebrating their 70th anniversary as a company?  Whoa!  Congrats and happy birthday to Wrangler!  To celebrate, they have a limited 70th Anniversary Collection and it's chockfull of some SERIOUSLY fun items.  Both trendy and vintage babes listen up, because there's stuff that BOTH camps will love!

I'm excited to be sporting a few (stay tuned) Wrangler 70th Anniversary Collection pieces, but today I'm wearing arguably the best denim jacket I've ever owned!  It's called The Wrangler's 70th Anniversary Cropped Jacket and not only is it a perfect fit (XS for measure) but as the name implies, it's cropped.  It hits me at the top of the hip bone, as opposed to inches past there like most denim jackets.  I bring this up because a lot of us vintage loving babes prefer cropped top layers to accommodate higher waisted bottoms.  This is the perfect jacket to carry around with you when it's too hot to wear outside during the day, but the AC blasting indoors or the evening may be too cold so you'll need a layer.

To round out the outfit (as I couldn't just wear a jacket ONLY for y'all 😱) I'm wearing my newest favorite dress from summer!  Retrolicious has never strayed from dinosaur prints in the past, but they've recently released a hot pink dress with dinosaurs all over it!  (Called the Dinomite dress!)  I snagged this from Lovely In Lilac a few weeks back and trust me, I'm giving this dress a very happy home!

I had to add further whimsy with my pink T-Rex bag (and matching earrings) from Kate Spade (duh) but I kept the rest of the outfit simple.  Summer is a time for no muss and no fuss, so I wanted to wear my hot pink flip flops from Old Navy.  I know I wear heels a lot, but I used to live in Florida where you can wear flip flops to fancy events and I could never quite quit that habit!  This whole look is a great example of keeping things low maintenance, yet classic and still bold.  The blue denim and pink play perfectly off each other, the dinosaurs and pink keep it fun and bold, and the jacket and flip flops keep it casual!  
I hope everyone is having a great week!  In my world I'm excited about two things: one, today will be day 55(!) of doing yoga every damn day!  Last week I put out my post on doing one month of yoga, but it was belated as my schedule threw some wrenches in the works for my all around blogging schedule.  So in just over a week you can expect a post about month two, as I'm going to try to post them monthly and a lot closer to when I complete a month!  Also, this is going to make me sound hella nerdy, but I've become borderline obsessed with the show Adam Ruins Everything!  The new season premiered last night (already watched the first episode and loved it)!  I've been very much looking forward to new season, so yay!  Haven't heard of it, don't know much about it, or know it/love it and wanna geek out with me?  For any of the above, click this Blair Uncensored link to read my gushing review on the series!  Have a great midweek, Internet!
XOXO

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 …
