Paper Crown Summer Florals

THIS DRESS.  I was so sad that I missed the Paper Crown x Rifle Paper Co collaboration at Anthropologie from a few years ago.  Living in NYC this summer, I got to shop around the city and one of my favorite stops was a cute little vintage shop called Beacon's Closet.  It's located right by Greenwich Village in Manhattan and it's an amazing hub of vintage, highly discounted designer pieces.  I also bought a gorgeous top from Carolina Herrera there during my stay.  

I was so happy to find this Draped Bouquet dress hidden away on the rack there.  It's so hard to find pieces from this collaboration anywhere, and I was so lucky to get my hands on this dress, and for such an amazing price too!  Obviously this particular dress isn't available anymore, but I found some similar versions here from Missguided and here from ASOS to get a kinda imilar look. 

This summer has been absolutely crazy and I have a feeling that my life won't be slowing down any time soon either.  I'm sad to say this, but it's been hard to maintain a regular posting schedule on LMHC now that my student life has really been kicked into high gear, I'm starting a new job soon, and I've also launched my beauty Youtube channel (please check it out if you haven't yet!)  I think that I'm going to have to scale back on blogging for now.  I won't be leaving it behind by any means- I love sharing my life and style with you and interacting with amazing women.  But I think I might have to scale back to one post a week so I'm not forcing myself to take on a workload I know I can't handle.  I hope you guys understand.  

Much love to you all this week!  I can't believe summer is already winding down to an end.

New York City, Columbia, and a Whirlwind Summer

Columbia University, NYC
First off, sorry for the lack of posts in a week!  It's been crazy flying back home, moving out of my dorm, and settling back into California, and I just didn't have content to post.  I can't wait to come at you guys with the rest of my NYC outfits, and some new quality content!  But for today, I'm posting my recap of the past month, one of the most magical and life changing months of my life.  

I just got back from New York City, where I took classes at Columbia University and Barnard College for the summer, and got to experience living in the city.  In today's post I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures from the month, and my favorite memories, from Coney Island to getting lost on the Subway.  

This month was a whirlwind and it went by so quickly.  It was amazing and I now know that I love the big city.  I felt right at home in Manhattan, and coming back to my quiet little coast town in California, even though I missed it, was a shock to my system.  I was scared I would hate city life, but I fell in love.  I met so many amazing people in my classes and made some lifelong friends.  And I had some awful moments too where I felt lost, homesick, hurt.  Life isn't perfect all the time, and this magical month was no exception.  

Still, this was the best month of my life.  I learned so many valuable life lessons and found myself.   This month helped me come out of my shell and break out of my introverted personality.  Thank you to the beautiful people who I was blessed to connect with and make friends with.  Thank you to Columbia and Barnard for being my wonderful home away from home.  And thank you to you guys for being so supportive and kind through this whole journey.  I love you, and I love New York.

Blushing Bow Bridge // Central Park, NYC

 Skirt: H&M // Top: Topshop // Shoes: DIY Vegan Louboutin Heels {I followed this tutorial} // Bag: Stella McCartney

It's my last week here at college in New York, and just looking at these pictures I took in the first week is bittersweet to me.  I've fallen in love with this city, even though I've only seen a glimpse of it, and I hope that in a few years I'll return here for school again.  

I fell in love with this skirt when I saw it at H&M on 5th Avenue.  It seemed like such a princess moment, and it made me feel amazing wearing it.  My friend actually agreed that I looked like one of those jellyfish from Finding Nemo in my skirt.  I wanted to go for a haute couture kind of shoot, so we strolled through Central Park to Bow Bridge, one of the most beautiful sights in Manhattan.  

I always loved the look of Christian Louboutin heels, but all of his shoes are leather, which I don't wear.  I decided to make my own red bottomed heels with a simple pair of Marc Fisher heels and some red paint.  Call it tacky all you want, but I think that being able to obtain that look without harming animals or spending a buttload of cash is amazing.
