White Stripes



Thank you so much for the birthday and shop well wishes! I’ve found that the birthdays after 30 can be stressful, with self-imposed markers of where you think your life should be and all that jazz. I didn’t have any of that anxiety this year, it’s been a year full of making changes and the change has been GOOD.

But, since that day fell on a Tuesday, and life and work got in the way of doing too much celebrating, we went for a day on the town last Sunday. We went to the museum, out for fried food & beers, and even snuck in some outfit pictures by this fun wall. Brian has the best ideas when it comes to photo locations.

Pink Striped Wall


skirt & sandals: thrifted
top: Instagram sale
necklace: in my shop


I never got around to buying these sandals from Target when they were all the rage last summer, but I scored them for $2 last week. Ahhh the power of thrifting.

    So in love with this skirt and these sandals! And of course, this wall. You just always look so cute. Glad you had a good birthday! That sounds like a pretty perfect day to me. P.S. It’s taking everything I have not to take advantage of your shop’s sale. We’ll see how much self-control I have ;)

    This outfit is amazing and I feel like it’s something only you could pull off. I get compliments on your necklace every time I wear it and I do what I can share your shop with my IRL friends! Also wait, what, you’re over thirty? You don’t look a day over 19.

    I’ve said it a million times but LA thrift shops truly suck and I’m quite jealous of the amazing things you find. I hope you had a wonderful birthday! Since my birthday is on Christmas (and my 30th was last year when I was 39 weeks pregnant) I don’t really get much time to reflect. I’m usually stressed about festivities which I guess is a good thing. Plus, I would have never guessed you were even close to 30. I need your skincare regimen ;)

  10. Brian really does have the best photo ideas and it sounds like you guys had such a fun day around town. Glad you had a great bday and didn’t get any of that anxiety. I’m already getting that feeling slowly creeping up for my birthday in a few weeks but haven’t pinpointed specific thoughts yet (wait does that even make sense?). anyway, seriously this outfit is amazing- what a find on that fun skirt & the sandals too! & i love that top. everything. and I love the necklaces, they were so perfect for Mitla Moda shoots this weekend : ).

    That print combination is seriously the cutest thing I’ve seen around. Such a fun look! I love finding items in thrift stores that I wanted to buy new. I’ve learned to always wait, mostly because I’m poor but also because it is so fun to hunt it down later on! Those sandals are darling!

  12. Marisa says:

    Holy geez – I want to find $2 sandals like that! Where was I when they had those beauts at Target? As always, in love with your outfit. You always mix color and pattern together so well. And this photo location is awesome!

  13. First, happy belated birthday (really belated)

    Second, those patterns and colors look great together!

    Third, what a fun background for pictures!

    Hi there Lisa! I really love the wall background for these shots! And your colorful, printed combo. That skirt is an awesome find. I would love to add some of those Target sandals to my closet as well! Also, happy belated birthday!!

    ? perfectly Priya
