Summer in October

What is it about the middle of the semester that's just so 'ughhhhhhhhhhhhh' ?

Trying to bring some fun/ playfulness to my life by mixing spring with fall. Especially with these temperatures, 94º in October? It may as well still be the spring/summer season.

I picked up both the shirt and hat from Goodwill. Trying the shirt on was kind of weird because it was next to all the grandma blouses but, whatever, it's nice being able to shop the WHOLE store instead of just the mediocre mens section.

Also, I should give basically all credit to this look to the Brazilian band, Banda UÓ. The band mixes a lot of popular songs and changes the words to Portuguese. The music style is called Electrobrega. Definitely check them out. Both their music and fashion style have been really influential in my life right now and I'm so excited to go study abroad in São Paulo next Fall! Hopefully my life can just straight up look like all their music videos. That'd be great.

Here's one of Banda UÓ's videos, O Gosto Amargo do Perfume!

Post-Modern Punk

Happy Monday // Halloween Week!

This past weekend was crazy. I was all over the board with my gender, emotions, and activities. My outfit today resulted from the weekend's influences.

MOCA Tucson, the museum I intern at, opened up a new exhibit with hundreds of flyers and designs by Raymond Pettibon, highlighting his work with the punk band, Black Flag, and Pettibon's influence to punk culture during the 70s and 80s. After a weeks worth of helping with installation, I think the constant exposure to punk culture made me feel like dressing in Doc's and this black Diesel button up. Yeah, so punk right? Not really, hence the post-modern.

On the other hand, I also feel like simplifying things lately. God, the semester started off on a great foot, then fell into the garbage disposal. Now I'm trying to make get my act together again. Minimalism and less clutter in my outfit, space, and life will hopefully help me clear my mind a bit. So a button up, jeans, and boots couldn't be a more perfect and simple October outfit.

Have an amazing week! I know I will because it's Halloween, duh.

Ps. Doesn't this Raymond Pettibon print look like me?

I love being ironic

I mean this is pretty preppy.
With a gangsta twist.
