Palm Trees and a Leather Jacket

Finally feeling like summer: endless days laying around the house listening to new music and old favorites (L$D by A$AP Rocky and Abstrakto, respectively), spending time with your best friends under the neon soaked sky, selling clothes that don't get enough love on Depop (@thestylishwanderer), driving down La Brea at 10 pm with no rhyme or reason, going to Target four times in two weeks for nail polish and gold hoop earrings, reading plays in the early morning, watching your favorite action movies on repeat cause you can, in-n-out twice in one week (duh), storyboarding friend's music videos, looping together beaded necklaces as gifts-for-no-reason, and of course: writing, writing, writing.

Also leather jackets and palm trees and little shoulder bags forever. palmtrees-4palmtrees-14palmtrees-10palmtrees-9palmtrees-7palmtrees-6palmtrees-16palmtrees-17palmtrees
Zara leather jacket, American Apparel crop top, vintage Levi's jeans, Silence + Noise Lucia strap sandals, and Topshop mini sporty barrel hold-all.

Outfit for a day doing "nothing"

As a student, you get asked the question "What are you doing this summer?"a lot. Whether it's out of curiosity or simply nothing else to talk about, this is the go-to conversation starter for fellow peers/adults/working people from about late May onwards. And, for the first time in three years, I don't have an answer for them. Sure, I have personal projects and films I want to write/shoot/edit (plus stuff for the blog) but in terms of "THIS WILL GO ON MY RESUMÉ FOR ETERNITY"... I've got nothing big on the list. I think, as a culture, there's a lot of social anxiety around the idea of "not doing anything" during the summer. Certainly when I answer my friends/adults a look of silent horror/confusion appears on their face before they can reign it in. Images of suburban teenage wasting time by skulking around neighborhoods and smoking cigarettes, bored and jaded no doubt flash in their minds. Because that's what the idea of "doing nothing" connotes, right? Except, for the first time in the last three or so years, I feel like I can actually breath. Which is why I wasn't too distraught when this past Friday the day totally got away from me and after stopping by my local coffee shop I headed to Target to pick up some gray ribbed tank tops and then ended up at the Forever 21 and spent way too much time trying on simple black jumpsuits. I have the whole summer to cross things off my to-do list, so why worry now? If there are those of you out there--like me-- who don't have major plans for the summer, relax. You have your whole life to be working.
