so effin' nautical

Oh my goodness, my title is definitely an inside joke between a few of my friends and I and it makes me laugh every time I think about it...  Sorry, I guess that's possibly the worst title then because now I've alienated you.  Just say the phrase like you're a surfer dude and it has to at least sort of amuse you.

Anyway, stripes.  I mean, let's face it, I'm not going to say anything revolutionary about this trend.  I love it.  How can you not?  It's just soo effin' nautical.  (See now you're in on it too!!)  I wish I lived within walking distance of a body of water so I could really drive the point home (because the awesomeness factor of blue and white stripes increases with proximity to water).  I mean... I suppose there has to be a lake somewhere in Toluca Lake, but rumor has it that you have to be ultra-rich/famous/Miley Cyrus to know where it is.  So instead, this is the roof.  There's a tepid hot tub up there, but it's nothing worth taking a photo of.  I definitely need to find new places to take pictures.  There's a park across the street, but setting up a tripod and taking pictures of myself in front of hoards of children and their parents is possibly my biggest nightmare.  I envy people who can find secluded locations.  Don't get me wrong, I love city life, but it can certainly be hard to find your own space.

Enough with my rambling.  I think it's time I watch The Universe on Netflix and let the sweet sounds of cerebral science lull me to sleep.

dress & belt: Forever 21, boots: DSW, blazer: BCBG (thrifted & gifted from my grandma), bracelets: thrifted, rings: Charlotte Russe & my mother's, sunglasses: James found them at a water park he used to work at... classy!
