If You're Lost, I'll Find You



















 



                 My sweater accurately explains how I feel and look on most days of the week.  Pretty sure if you ask anyone about me they will tell you that I always look confused and I always am in fact, very confused on what's going on.  I should stop talking about my sweater this instant because I'm slowly confusing myself on what I should be typing.

With the outfit I was interested pretty much in styling my leather cap.  When styling something new and out of my usual style I try to blend it with a style I'm more comfortable. Pretty sure you guys instantly can tell it's school girl by my plaid skirt.  

I always need that splash of color or print in my outfit because, it always makes an outfit more interesting.   Since green and red are complimentary colors, I instantly matched my green skirt with my cute red bag from Express!

Beginning of March





Sorry this post was a day late, you know school man it makes me busy.  

Met Caroline for brunch on Sunday before starting homework.  We went to the Crepevine for bombass crepes! 

If you guys have watched Portlandia, I experienced the Brunch episode. If you haven't watched it, essentially what happens is everyone in the city of Portland attempts to get brunch at this once place and the whole episode dealt with people running around and doing crazy things to get some dang brunch.  That was Caroline and I, because we went all the way to Sunset district just to get rejected from a brunch spot.







No, I wasn't actually sad I actually went to Berkeley to help out my photography friend Elo with a shoot for her class! (I'll post her awesome shots once I get them)
Also major props to me I had 30 minutes to get from Berkeley (which is across the bay) all the way back to San Francisco which I managed to do with 10 minutes to spare!


Anyway, enjoy the pictures of brunch and remember if you want to keep up with my life more regularly, my Instagram is here!

SAT












It's Monday Tuesday and I'm post a Saturday diary.  That's what I like to call running Allison late.  Speaking of late Clarissa and Ben came 2 hours later than the time they told me they would visit me at. 
It's fine because, it made my day was seeing my two homies from back home.  It was a little bit of a sentimental day with Ben leaving for the Navy tomorrow but it was sure as hell fun.  

Also say hello to Clarissa the finally admitting film major! 
Maybe during summer we'll start filming projects together *wink*

I'll see you guys tomorrow with another diary and Thursday with an outfit hehe

I Won't Let Our Story End




The metallic trend was one of those styles that took me a long time to process.  Think of slow internet dial up speed, and that's basically me when it comes to metallic.  Let's get real, the day my hair stylist dyed my hair silver was, the day I officially started digging the trend.  Metallic comes off as both funky and futuristic to me.  It reminds me of the early 2000s when the TV shows I watched basically envisioned the future with everyone wearing metallic. 

Considering I matched a silver dress with a gold metallic cardigan I give them props on accurately guess how the future would look fifteen years later.

FRIDAY


Due to scheduling conflicts we decided it would be best to meet up on Friday for our weekly Digital Techniques study group/ cafe hopping meeting.

I have to say I love this cafe the best! The interior is so cute and they make sure there are plugs everywhere.  

It's close to my dorm, serves iced coffee in a mason jar,  and has extremely taste sandwiches; 
really, what more could you want?  

It's also a good time studying with these punks because, afterwards we take outfit pictures.

I'll Set You Free

I love this floral bomber so much but styling it is the challenge. A challenge, I'm pretty sure I just won.  

I could have just threw on my floral bomber and called it an outfit but that isn't me. Unless I have two or more prints/ textures in an outfit I'm never happy.  

To style my bomber I threw my grid jacket over my shoulders. Since the color is cool toned, and it's a jacket it instantly blends with my bomber. The pattern works because, my floral bomber is still the dominant print.  As long as you have a color scheme, a dominant print, and a theme you can practically match anything.

Working With A Blanket


 I know you want to jump through the screen and take a nap










Adrienne swooped by to my room and recently, she has been teaching me the art of taking more editorial shots for ze blog.  Instantly, I thought of the idea of using a blanket as a backdrop.  Of course, here are some of the shots. (and...my selfies...)

I love this blanket The Ankit was kind enough to gift me! It's super warm, super soft and I love the print so much.  (Can I take this blanket to my history class because, it's so cold in there) No lie, I'm a sucker for a good print blanket.  It could stem from the fact I like to use my blankets also as backdrops....

Check out Theankit.com they have really cute stuff like earphones, home decor, and extremely cute phone cases! c:

*disclaimer* The blanket was gifted to me for review
