Red Pants & Vintage Floral Top

This season, I think colored pants are they best thing to ever happen, ever. Because of this, I got myself a pair of skinny red pants from forever 21 (around 25 bucks). Just wearing colored pants with any old tee makes your outfit instantaneously cool. Add a scarf, some sandals, and a pair of shades, and you'll look like a real California/Long Beach native.

Today, however, I wanted to showcase this adorable vintage floral top I bought from - you'll never guess - my school campus. There's one part of campus where vendors set up stalls and sell their goods, and when Bear Cat vintage set up shop, I was pleasantly surprised! They are by far the coolest stall to ever be on campus. I got this top for only $12 and had a great time browsing through their other stuff. They have an Etsy, but you can also find them in Long Beach.

I'm SO envious of people with long hair who are capable of throwing their hair into a high hipster bun. My hair is just short and thin and sad! So, I attempted a tiny little bun with bangs, inspired by Brigitte Bardot(sort of) and this video tutorial: Short Hair Ballerina Bun

  3. Jennifer: Thank you! It was very bright! I felt a bit conspicuous walking around campus actually. It's like red lipstick, you gotta be in a bold mood to pull it off.

    Naomi: Good idea! I also want to try pairing the top with a high-waisted skirt and a belt.
