Spring Favorites 2018

4:32:00 PM Andrea Ryan 3 Comments

          Since I haven't blogged in a little while, I decided to put together a little post about some of my favorite things from Spring.  It's kind of a post version of the common YouTube video trend.  I will link whatever items I can.  
          I love this pair of sunnies.  This is my favorite style of sunglasses because I think they look best on my face shape.  I'm not sure what brand these are because they don't say anywhere on them, but they came from Marshall's.  I'm sure you have notice that they have been in a lot of my recent posts, including a lot of other things from this post.  You can't tall but they have gold metal at the top of the frame.  It makes them look so much more expensive then they were.  
Perfume: Sephora
          I am in love with the new Marc Jacobs fragrance, Daisy Love.  Daisy Marc Jacobs has always been my all time favorite scent but I actually think I like this one more.  I got these samples when I was shopping in Santa Monica.  I've decide that I want this to be my wedding day perfume.  I really want to buy the full size bottle eventually.  
          I've had this necklace since I was little.  I got it as a gift from a relative because opals are my birthstone.  They also happen to be my favorite stone.  I rediscovered this necklace recently and I can't stop wearing it.  
Bag: Topshop
          I have been loving this wicker bag.  It's from Topshop.  I got it at the beginning of the season.  It fits a surprising amount in it and doesn't pop open.  I just really love how it looks.  
          I know it's weird to include food in this video but I don't care.  I discovered this jam from Trader Joe's recently and it is so good.  I absolutely love raspberries so maybe that's why I love it so much.  I've been eating a lot of PB & J's lately and it's making me feel like a kit again.  Actually we are going on a trip this weekend to Big Sur and we are bring it along!

Watercolor Mickey T-Shirt

T-SHIRT: Uniqlo  |  JEANS: Forever 21  |  BELT: Thrifted  |  NECKLACE: Gift  |  CHOKER: H&M  |  SANDALS: H&M
          Happy first day of summer! Summer is and has always been my favorite season.  Since moving to southern California, the weather is a little different.  Spring here has been kind of chilly and not what I expected.  I hear that summer and fall are much hotter.  I've been excited for summer because I love going to the beach and I want to be able to go swimming.  
          I got this t-shirt a few weeks ago from the Uniqlo in Santa Monica.  I am obsessed with it because it is watercolor stripes, with little hidden Mickey Mouse heads.  It's part of one of their many collaborations with Disney.  If you know me, you will know that I am a huge Disney fan.  I've been more of a fan of t-shirts lately and I think it's the laid-back California style that it influencing me a bit.

Striped Capri Pants

PANTS: Forever 21  |  T-SHIRT: Forever 21  |  SANDALS: H&M (in store)  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx
          I've been wearing these pants so much this spring.  I got them a few months ago from Forever 21.  I needed something that I am allowed to wear to work but I have been wearing them everywhere.  These sort of linen colorful pants are super on-trend right now too.  You can find them in most stores, I think.  I love these because the colors are really nice.  They also come with a belt but I didn't wear it with this combo.  
        I spotted this adorable wall art a few weeks ago and knew I really wanted to take a picture here.  I am a sucker for colorful walls.  It's a big Instagram trend that has been going around for a while, but it's one I love.  I just love how much of a statement it makes.  It's fun to match your outfit to the wall.  If you are in need of some photography backdrops for a party, wedding, or just for fun, that is another way to create a nice background.

New Home Decor Part 2

2:39:00 PM Andrea Ryan 0 Comments

POP: Ikea  |  PLANT: Walmart
          Since a few months have passed, I have collected more decor for my apartment.  I wanted to share some of the items i've found because I love the aesthetic that we have going on.  I'm not the type to buy expensive things (unless they are amazing) so most of these are from Ikea, Target, and Home Goods.  I will definitely be doing a part 3 of this because my apartment is almost completely furnished but I still have some more things to buy.  You can read the first post HERE
CABINET: Target (in store)
CANISTERS: Home Goods
POT: Home Goods  |  PLANT: Ikea
Who knew Ikea sold real plants? Not me!
PILLOWS: Cupcakes and Cashmere 
Obsessed with these pillows!
FRAMES: Target, Ikea, and T.J. Maxx
POSITANO PRINT: Etsy
GREATLAKES PRINT: Souvenir from Michigan (local artist)
SPAIN PRINT: Gray Malin 
PARIS PRINT: Souvenir from Paris (local artist)
FLAMINGOS: online 
MACKINAC ISLAND PRINT: Souvenir from Mackinac Island (local artist)
SQUARE BEACH PRINT: T.J. Maxx
CALIFORNIA PRINT: Etsy
SAILBOATS: souvenir from Michigan (local artist)
I may be making some adjustments to this over time but this is the arrangement for now.
PICNIC BASKET: Home Goods
The cutest picnic basket I have literally ever seen. 
PEN POT: Ikea
I think this is a pot for plants but I wanted to use it to hold my pens.  
COLORFUL POT: Anthropologie
METAL POTS: Ikea
GLASS CANISTERS: Home Goods
I still need to transplant some of these.  I also need to find a pot for that cactus.  I love plants so much.  They just make a place feel so much more homey.

Echo Park Lake

DRESS: Forever 21  |  SUNGLASSES: Souvenir from Traverse City, MI  |  SANDALS: H&M  |  BACKPACK: Primark
          I'm finding more and more things I love about this area everyday.  Saturday we went to Echo Park because I saw some pictures of this place and thought it looked amazing.  I saw the turtles on Instagram but had no idea there were so many.  There are tons and they are really cute.  I seriously want to hold them. ūüėÄ  This park is really nice.  It's a good place to hang out and has a nice view of the L.A. skyline.  If you are visiting L.A. you should check it out.  You can also rent a paddle boat.  We didn't do that because I used to own one (before it sunk) and they are a lot of work.  I really want to come back here sometime and have a picnic.

DRESS: Asos  |  SHOES: Meijer  |  BACKPACK: Primark  |  SUNGLASSES: Asos
          Happy June 1st! I've had this dress since Christmas but haven't been able to wear it because I needed to hem it.  It's amazing how long you can put things off for without even thinking about it.  I have just been so busy with moving related activities.  After Christmas I had to pack, then I was physically moving and looking for apartments, unpacking, going back to Indiana and driving back again, looking for a job, apartment furnishing, and cleaning.  Everything just takes so much time.  I finally got around to hemming it last week and I love it.  I think it is such a cute dress.  The color is very unique for me.  I don't wear a lot of red because it's generally one of my least favorite colors but something about this color just called to me (haha).  The dress is still for sale at Asos and it's in the sale section!
