thrifted dress, vest, and shoes - bag from euphora - random jewelry, boyfriend's sunglasses

This dress was last worn in San Francisco at a dance club. I wore chunky boots and had huge hair - a ridiculous mash up of Ginger and Scary Spice. Today I'm feeling hyped on the tropical weather and greenery in California, so I switched it up a bit and threw on some shells, tied the bottom, and walked around feeling like a Hawaiian rainbow on acid.

BF and I are working on collecting palm tree prawns for an awning he is going to construct over our porch. Those suckers are big and prickly, but we must hoard them, injuries and all. We are attempting to transform our place into a beach-like parallel/dog palace. I'm gaining inspiration everywhere I look, and I feel so lucky that my roommates are not only down for my ideas, but have their own perfect ideas spawning from my conceptions. MY ROOMATES ARE AMAZING.

Also, as I am sure you've read recent posts made by my fellow blogger buds, I finally have some female companions out here! Whoop whoop. Super hyped on: Isabel, Madeline, Brit, Rachel, Seaghna, Selena, Larissa, and Sabella. Rad inspirational chicks, I tell ya. Check out their blogs, as they've got good things to say and all have killer style. Like, mad style. Like, whoa. I'm hoping it won't be too difficult to coerce them all to a beach outing soon (yeah?).

Formspring people - I will answer questions soon. 3/4 promise. That's slightly less than a pinky promise. I've got a lot on my plate, sorry.

Here are some photos of my room and porch, so far:
