Back from....


TOP: my mom
SKIRT: f21
FLATS: my mom
BAG: my mom
NECKLACE: target (!!!) 
SUNGLASSES: c/o VAGABOND YOUTH

I just got back from IYF World Camp, which was absolutely amazing in every way possible. Despite my  hours of sleep for the past 5 days being approximately 20 hours TOTAL, I earned and learned many new things from the camp. I was challenged to exert myself and to discipline myself. 
World Camps are held all around the world and I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend that my readers attend, since they are accessible and were in 30 countries just this year.
visit the IYF website HERE

+++ Before I left for camp I went to LA!
The Getty Museum was amazing (as amazing as the last 3 times I went), but this time my eyes were really opened to the pieces in their collection. 
I can't post all the pictures I took of the paintings, but I'll drop some names of my favorites: Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, John Singer Sargent, Tissot, Degas, and others. The decorative arts exhibits with French furniture was amazing, and so was their silverware and porcelainware collection. 
The next museum I'm going to is LACMA, so I will be posting about that as well.

PS--how cool is this necklace?! It reminds me of Tom Binns SO MUCH.
PPS--can you tell that my pictures are WAY better? I finally got a camera!
see it here

stay tuned for next post (picture diary-esque type thing)

Your striped top paired with the electric blue pleated silk skirt is AMAZING. I love how color-dynamic the outfit is, and I wanted to steal those shoes :3 You always pull off that perfect chill, laid-back but still ever-so chic look. Love it :)
