Neon surfer bum

(reversible sweatshirt-thrifted, shorts-H&M, bag-mom's, earring-keychain, sunglasses-santee alley, hat-H&M, shoes-converse)

That earring is really a keychain that our friend/houseguest Xavier gave me while we were RVing it at Coachella that I fashioned into an earring as I was running out the door because I thought I needed some wacky accessory. This outfit is really the most effortless outfit ever put together because I actually slept in the sweater and shorts the night before. Yup, this is me wearing my pajamas out in public. I mean, I love fashion and all but some days you just can't be bothered to think about assembling a whole new outfit together, no matter how much you love fashion and getting ready, right? I haven't worn my chucks in a million years but they're making a debut today because, like I said, this was LAZY DAY!

Anyways, another issue: Tim and I are shopping for a DSLR, right now we have the very cute and stylish Leica D-Lux 4, which is great for it's versatility and charming good looks but I've noticed my pictures are definitely sub-par compared to all the lovely professional looking photos I've come across on fashion blogs. I've narrowed down my decision to buying some kind of Canon. Which Canon DSLR shall I get? What kind of camera do you have and what do you like/hate about it? Let me know your thoughts! <3


  1. I really like your bag!! it is so cool. I don't know anything about cameras! sorry that I am no help! I hope you find a really nice one though :)

  2. I love these photos! And you're totally rocking the neon green laces- I shall now refer to you as "my lovely neon laces twinsie".

    That made more sense before I actually typed it out, but you get the idea. Also- that earring is so perfectly wonderfully '80s!

    Can't help you with the camera search, I actually have no clue what Joey uses (how is that possible? I should really know what camera my husband has!). I do know it looks very pretty and professional...which is cool, but neither helpful nor relevant.

    Sorry about the Epic Poem length nonsense comment. For some reason I become annoyingly loquacious as the weather heats up- strange and random, but true. Every year. Imagine what it's like for poor Joey.

    Oh, and you're adorable, as usual.

  3. I don't think your pictures are sub-par :)
    But I have a Canon Rebel XSi, and I quite enjoy it.
    Also, love this sweater so much. Oversized sweaters are most definitely my cup of tea.


  4. cool outfit, i love your bag! i have the cheap model canon rebel but am thinking about upgrading to the next's a great camera either way, and good for beginners who are just getting started with a dslr :)

  5. For something that was slept in, you look great. It's difficult to not compare yourself to other bloggers. I think your photos are beautiful, just sayin'. I'd love to have a dslr one day, but then, I think about all the clothes I could buy instead.

  6. I love these photos, and I think leica is more great better than canon, lots of people want leicaa inluced mine

  7. you have such a lovely blog.
    follow me :) xoxo

  8. love your hat, and bag! and ofcourse the rings :)

  9. That palm-tree-key-chain-turned-earring really does the look, lady friend! Britney and I both now use the Rebel T2i on our blogs (it's the same one you played with that day we went to Santee Alley). I recommend!

  10. Just like Madeline I use the Canon Rebel T2i and I really don't feel like I need a fancier one. I use it for shooting for magazines, book covers and so on and noone ever complained about the quality, so apparently it does the trick. I'd say that if you get a DSLR you very much need a 50mm-lense, it costs maybe a 100 bucks but it's SO WORTH IT. I never use any other lense even though I have quite a few different ones.

    The keychain earring is frickin boooomb and you look stunning, who cares if you slept in your outfit? It still looks smashing. Casual-smashing.
