Wore this lil ensemble for wine tasting with Stella Rosa at the San Antonio Winery, my first time ever! Being absurdly cold for a hot minute was worth tasting straight some the barrel. And if you bet your girl didn't spit out one drop of wine, then I guess you can really get to know someone via interwebs.

Throwin' it back to '11, taking outfit photos on the "shady street" on my old block in OC. Snagging these Maryam Nassir Zadeh sandals in Watermelon Suede has been one of my favorite decisions lately. Rotating out the dozens of black boots I have and elevating my collection a little. (If you have Depop, I'm @joellenlove!)

A TORNADO FLEW AROUND MY ROOM

Target paid for the post and the goods, I made them pretty.

Black fuzzy plush butterfly chair



I took up the challenge with Target to do a bedroom re-do for under $350, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results! Getting right into it, my favorite purchase has to be my Plush Butterfly Chair. It’s perfect for loft (or dorm) life because I can just fold it up and stash it in the corner at any time. It’s super comfy and I love watching Sailor Moon with the roomies in my own bed version of a chair (falling asleep in it is just too easy).


Min Pin, vintage comforter, bed, loft, DTLA

White has always been an absolute must when it comes to bed sheets, and mine are the softest sheets by Threshold. I’ve never been a morning person, so white helps bring light to the bed and makes me become a morning person. So that the white doesn’t become too monotonous, I accented with blacks and moss green. Light pollution is another factor that’s common amongst lofts and dorms—if one person has the light on, everyone can see it. I will not be that jerk that keeps everyone up with them, so I made a DIY headboard with these string lights by Room Essentials. They give off a soft glow, which is enough light for me without disturbing the roomies.


Hanging branch clothing rack, exposed brick, DTLA loft

My favorite part of my room has to be my hanging rack. It’s essentially just a branch I found in my parents’ backyard and hung up in the corner! I nicknamed it #MichelleBranch. I used white acrylic paint, some wire, and clasps. This is perfect if you have a small closet, sharing it with your roomie, or *gulp* don’t have one at all.

Oh happy day to two of my favorite things: Women's Equality and Dogs! Just so happens they're on the same day. Social media messages holidays for so much shit, I can't keep up (french fries, watermelon, junk food), but today is not one to forget. Only 95 years ago, (white) women were granted the right to vote. We've still got a long way. 

Oh, and above is my outfit. Bye!

Sorry it's been a while, but pumping out posts back-to-back this week! Part of getting a new hair color (this weekend!) is making sure everything pre-color gets published. Gotta keep it fr3$h.

SUPPLIES

Target made this post possible, along with my original thoughts & opinions, of course.

Target Back to College Wall Clock and Assembly Lamp



This time last year I was graduating college, but it doesn’t necessarily mean I’m out of the back-to-college mind frame. I thought about what d├ęcor and necessities I’d haul for the big day, and realized—they’re still the same today! I picked up this Decorative Clock with an unexpected wood accent; it keeps the room from looking too sterile. My gold brass Articulated Task Lamp is great for late night reading or editing videos and blog posts, because I’m too young for my eyes to crap out on me! I love how the gold accents my candle tray and mug.

Target Back to College Adventure Time DVDs, Essie nail polish

I can be a bit of a homebody sometimes, so I got the supplies for an ideal night in with the roomies: Adventure Time seasons on DVD, nail polish galore, and snack & ice cream on deck. Don’t forget your phone for ridiculous(ly awesome) selfies.

Target Back to College Fujifilm instax photos hanging

College will bring some of your favorite memories. You’re basically learning how to adult with your best friends at your side. I share these memories with my Instax polaroid photos and a DIY display. It’s just yarn, thumb tacks, and little wooden clothespins.
