far less high heeled shoes than previously, but that's about it.

my life is utterly consumed with school right now. already starting the countdown to graduation and there's still a year+ to go. anyway, here are some of the things I wore recently. there will probably be a part two to this post at some point.

simply titled spring

in the theme of having no time to write poetic musings, I'll just let you in on a hint: this was last year. I just thought it would be appropriate now seeing as easter is coming up and all. DSC06434 DSC06400 DSC06313 DSC06446 DSC06325 DSC06324 DSC06426 DSC06430

Little-known fact about me: I LOVE the fair!!! Growing up in Sacramento (the capitol of California), going to the State Fair was a huge deal- my family has competed in baking competitions every year for at least 20 years including this one. I'm so glad I moved to L.A. where they take their county fairs very seriously. This is my third trip to a local fair this summer and I would totally not be opposed to a fourth. Stay young and stay adventurous.
As always, you could have seen it sooner on Instagram & Snapchat (@nivelliot)
I wore Prabal Garung for Target dress, Rebecca Minkoff bag and Forever 21 sandals.

[And sun sun sun all down our necks] - Palm Springs, CA


I posted part one a couple days ago where we checked in at The Saguaro, swam in the amazing pool, got dinner downtown, took the Palm Springs Aerial Tram up the mountains, and had a movie date. Part two happens at Elvis' Honeymoon Hideaway, back at our favorite pool, visiting Shield's Date Farm, and getting a late dinner at The Ace. See the video here.
