( H&M fashion against aids top, pants, and oxfords, random bracelets)

I know I always make excuses for my lack of updating - it's really only to make myself feel less guilty - but I've been extremely busy with my internship! I actually find myself enjoying it immensely - I mean, how wonderful is it to get paid for surfing fashion websites and looking for inspiration? I do that on a daily basis anyway!

I first saw this shirt on an H&M ad in the subway, and it was, quite literally, love at first sight. In an ideal world I would be brave enough to wear this crop with just shorts (and have the abs to do so). But it turns out I'm whimpy and opted for the high-waist look. Sorry that last picture super shitty, I have yet to master how to get a clear picture in mid-air - *embarrassment*.

In my editorial research at work, I discovered this photo from an absolutely captivating editorial which is actually for Oysho's spring summer collection (they just opened up a store near Hotel de Ville in Paris).

Currently Listening to:
Neon Indian - Should've Taken Acid with You
As Tall as Lions - Love, Love, Love
Local Natives - Sun Hands
Morning Benders - Cold War
Dr. Dog - Shadow People
