Head in the Clouds

ZARA: Maxi Dress It’s been such a long time my friends! Balance is one of the things I want to work on this coming year.  My goal is to keep you updated as much as possible with my wacky adventures.  I have missed being able to share what I have been up to, but with starting my photography business as well as maintaining my 8-5 job, and being a full time student it has kept me extremely busy.  No matter how extreme my schedule gets, I will not let go of my Charms of Penny it is a part of me. The location of the shoot above is a location that is often overlooked in DTLA.  I love how it is in the middle of it all so close to Pasadena, DTLA, and the university I attend.  The view of this nature spot is magnificent.  I can even saw the view is much better than in Griffith Park, I say this because the view of my little treasure city is so close.  From where I took …

Blue Jean Girl

   Jeans::Levis    Heels::Just Fab What is easier to style than the old jeans and white shirt combo? This is the first time I ever buy boyfriend jeans and let me tell you these jeans by Levis do not disappoint at all.  They are so comfortable I can wear them forever.  The closest thing to forever that I can do is wear them at least once a week.  I know that it is a big fashion no-no; frankly my dear I don’t give a dam.  A way to keep things interesting with my outfit is ofcourse to have popping accessories.  It keeps the go to outfit more interesting.  I will enjoy wearing these type of outfits for the time being since in Cali the summer heat is still fighting strong! I wanted to share with you guys something very close to my heart.  You probably have noticed my small absences from the blog.  The reason for this is that I am focusing a lot more on my photography business that I am starting up Lily Tapia …

Fall for Boots

       It is the first day of fall! It is crazy how quickly time flies.  I can not say I was waiting for this season to start because I feel like this summer I was not able to enjoy it as much as I wanted to.  Believe me I will slowly start transitioning to fall appropriate weather.  (Talk to the LA weather guru because it has been extremely hot for the last couple of weeks) A way in which I am transitioning to Fall clothing is by dusting off my good ol’ boots and sporting them with anything from shorts, dresses, or skirts.  Like the lovely number you see above.  I got this from an amazing event in Down Town La called A Current Affair, which only happens twice a year once in April and the next In September 26 (this weekend).  I can not wait to see what is in store this time around.  They have so many things it is Vintage Nirvana.  It’s A Current Affair is selling tickets online hope you LA peeps …

Summer Songs

        Gladiator Sandals: Steve Madden //Zara off-Shoulder Printed Dress// Summer is almost over.  I know we are taught to believe that summer is “officially” over after Labor Day, but I am a very technical person sooo…summer isn’t officially over till September 22.  I think I am just in denial that summer fun is a thing of the past.  Besides, in LA we are currently experiencing a crazy heat wave.  You know where I’ll be this weekend! The beach! Soaking up the sun.  I hope you all enjoy your weekend.

Pastel Confetti

   Dress: State Pleated Overlay Dress   Pink Sandals similar here: Ugg I wanted to start preparing myself and say catch you later summer by wearing this gorgeous dress.  This dress automatically makes me feel like I am traveling in Europe enjoying a gelato and walking around the Trevi Fountain.  I’m the kind of person who is a summer junkie I love  being able to enjoy the sun’s rays, while I go to the beach or even as I head out to PCH for a scenic drive.  Don’t get me wrong I am looking forward for fall, but can I just have a couple of days more to enjoy summer with all its might?  I wore this 1.State dress that I’m currently obsessed with- I love the pastel rainbow colors and how the pleats on the the dress are so breezy. They kinda feel like a 1920’s silk dress.  I hope you all enjoy the last days of summer to there fullest!!!

Think Pink

Pink Blazer: ZARA ::: Parrot Pattern Shorts: Forever 21  ::: There’s nothing better than having that piece of clothing that automatically makes you feel that much more cooler. This blazer my friends is that item that I am taking about. Yes its summer, which means layers are out of the question. I mean, thats just, like, the rules of feminism!(I had to call out my Mean Girl Movie) but the smooth woven fabric of the blazer keeps the layers very thin perfect for those summer days.  It is very easy to wear specially when those unpredictable weather changes in So Cal.  From sunny hot days to in this case rainy hot day. {BACKGROUND INFO}  I thanked my lucky Stars that I wore this blazer because right after these shots were done it started to pour. Instead of complaining we; my photographer boyfriend and I, decided to make the most of it and take a walk in the rain.  I wish I could say my toes stayed dried on this walk….so romantic ❤     

Venice Walks

      Jean Midi Skirt: Forever 21 Juicy Couture Bandeau Halter Top (similar) Dolce Vita Strappy Heels Kate Spade Toucan Necklace Venice: It’s one of those places I’ve had in mind to go back and photograph.  I stayed with a fond memory last time I visited  about a year ago the post can be seen here LOVE STREET  As I was seeing my photos from the last time visiting there I just couldn’t help and admire how much my photography skills have improved and the way I style myself has changed.  I am not saying I have reached a level of satisfaction because their is still a lot of things I need to work on, but I am happy with the process of learning the art photography and fashion.  One thing for sure has not changed my love for the carefree dreamer I became as I was walking this gorgeous canals  Each block has its own distinct style, I want to go back and photograph during winter imagine the outfit possibilities simply enjoy a calm walk with my lover …

Denim Boho Flare

Flare Daisy Pants: Forever 21  Levis Denim Top, but similar in Mango I am a true bohemian at heart.  With summer being here that inner chic nomad comes out even more than usual. Levis has to perfect mix of minimalism and boho, like the top I am wearing on the photos,  I had to pair it with my ever so cool flare pants.  Which I may say feel kinda like yoga pants, they are so comfy. Bring on the festivals, long summer nights, and beach days! I hope you all have an awesome week and I’ll Leave you with this question My bf and I are planning a road trip towards the end of August so question guys Where are some awesome, but local places to visit in California? Can’t wait to hear your ideas XOXO

Jump on It

Jumper is Vintage Heels:Steve Madden Stecy Heels  Backpack bought at TJ Maxx similar here: Leather Buckle Zipper Backpack As a Fashion Blogger I never thought it would be so hard to photograph in public locations. This shoot by far was one of the hardest shoots.  Maybe that’s what I get for believing that a crowd of fans from the Pasadena Music Festival would not try to photobomb my photos.  Silly me! This little jumper has become one of my favorite pieces of clothing.  Just as it looks it is very comfortable to wear I can not get enough on how spacious it is, so you know I let it all hang out and ate like there’s no tomorrow.  The only downside was the heels! I love them, but they are so darn uncomfortable.  It is okay though I forgive them, because I will be rocking them over and over again. (Can you say Love Hate Relationship?) I hope you all have a great rest of the week.  Positive vibes from me to all of you.
