b l u e : from sunset to sunrise

Night: Blazer, Alexander Wang. Shoes, Chloe. Choker, H&M.
Day: Dress, Vintage from Jet Rag. Shoes, Chloe. Hair tie, random ribbon.

The thing about having blonde hair is that you get to experiment with all different colors - blue, pink, purple, grey... If you didn't already know, supernatural colors on hair are all semi-permanent. Which means they don't stay in for long. Two weeks max. Which also means, I'm banking as many selfies as I can before this blue peacock hair thing fades on me. 

Here's the thing with wearing colored hair - You HAVE TO rock it. Colored hair can be a little tricky in that it sometimes comes off a little cheap, but I strongly believe that it can easily be elevated. So here are 3 things I've learned as I continue tasting the rainbow. 

1. Black. Pair your hair with all black and immediately watch yourself go from zero to a hundred. I will forever be team blazer, and by that I mean just the blazer, nothing else. 
2. Match it. I've been doing this thing where I match my outfit to the color of my hair. Surprisingly, it doesn't look as tacky as you'd think. If you don't want to do full color on color, then wear something that has just a tad of the same color as your hair.
3. Simple makeup. The hair is a lot. So keep the makeup minimal. A little lip stain is sexy, especially for the day time.

you look at me. I look at you.

If there's one print I have to pick to wear over and over again this summer, it's stripes. Vertical, horizontal, diagonal, you name it - I'm game. Here I'm wearing a bodysuit by American Apparel. (P.S. it's on sale) This one's my go-to piece for the summer, and that's saying a lot... considering I have to get naked every time I use the restroom. But who cares, right? All that matters is that it hugs in all the right places, dips in the back and is one of those pieces that everybody wants to know where it's from. 
So... convenient? No. Cute as hell? Yeah. And did I mention it's on sale??

Act III: Split

Google Search: Cliff diving in Split
Search Results: Cliff diving split in face 
So instead, we went speed boating. Probably the most exhilarating thing I've done, ever. No life-vests, no seat belts, plenty of wind in my hair and water in my face. Peter, our bad ass skipper, took us from island to island and from cave to cave (see photo 4) My mother (see photo 6) and my aunt came along for the ride, and even them at 50 years young had the time of their lives. Not to mention, we ate the freshest seafood and frolicked on a private island. I wish I had more photos that documented this epic ride, but I was too busy holding on for life. (I still have bruises to prove this).

Act II: Hvar


Upon arriving, I immediately felt like I had met Ibiza's long lost cousin. There is something about this island that makes you feel excited about being young and alive. Fine, maybe it had to do with all the frat-esq bars, ladies in white and ratch-esq boys, but regardless, that one night in Hvar was definitely worth the pounding headache the next morning. If you do decide to pay Hvar a visit, make your way up the hill to the Fortress at the top of the island. I promise it won't disappoint. (Scroll to photo 3). Not to mention, there's this cannon that will have you going boom, boom. 
This remix by Roosevelt of Glass Animal's Pools fully vibes Hvar. Listen:

Croatia: Act I


I'm not sure if it's this song or if it's the act of going through all the photos on my phone and camera, but I feel like wallowing. 
As expected, vacation-blues are in full swing. 
Croatia was even more magical than I imagined. The photos above were taken in Dubrovnik, or as you may call it, the King's Landing. The white stone walls, vibrant orange roofs and turquoise windows immediately had me swooning.
Most of our days in Dubrovnik were spent swimming in the Adriatic Sea (cold as ice, btw), walking through Old City (from early morning to wee hours of night) and eating... (lots and lots of eating).
As for wardrobe options? Tops are optional, but make sure you've got a sick bikini. Do bring a hat, just trust me. (I lived in this one). 

Here's Act I of celebrating full passports, full hearts, and this killer tan. All hail the King's Landing.

Feelings: Croatia

In a few days I'll be frolicking along the Adriatic Sea, something I've longed to do for a long, long while.

But currently, in the present time, I'm stuck in what I like to call a packing rut. I don't know what to pack. So I decided to create a few mood boards to motivate myself... These boards are of what I envisioned 2 weeks in paradise might feel like, what I'd wear, what I'll see and how I'd feel.

So I guess I should go pack now?  

P.S. I'm currently putting together a playlist for my Adriatic adventures... this one below is the first song on my list. If you have suggestions, send them my way.

trying to look outdoorsy

You see, I'm not really the camping type. Granted, I've never actually gone camping... but we won't get into that here. I am, however, team CAMP. I've been wearing this tee all month long. It's my current obsession because it's one of those casual, cool, goes with everything tee that makes me seem all outdoorsy. Fake it 'till you make it, right?    

In other news, I'm currently working on a super exciting personal project!!! It's been a long time coming... More to come on that soon! xo
