Black Friday has come and gone, and while I will never be one to get up at 4am to wait in a line for an appliance or even a pair of shoes (no judging though!), I might be known to drop a few dimes from behind my laptop screen instead (in my pj’s no less). This year I scored this seriously epic army jacket from ASOS for 30% off just before it sold out, thanks be to the online shopping gods.

You don’t even have tan lines because you sadly haven’t seen the sun long enough to get them. This summer has been full of work and handling grown up responsibilities (which has been good, but I do miss the days of salty beach hair, freckles, BBQs, bike riding, etc… I know they’ll be back, but Summer ’16 has been all grinding for me!). I’m really hoping to take advantage of the long “Indian summers” that LA tends to have, and frolic around Malibu a few times before I start covering up for fall. Enter, this little knit tank, that I swear I’ve been searching for forever. Continue reading
