In the Jungle

Lolla weekend is coming quickly and I can hardly wait.  I will be there all weekend thanks to Nylon Mag! This week New York has been crazy hot so I had to get creative with my outfits, this outfit is perfect inspiration for your Lolla looks under the hot sun!  I wore a long grey and white mesh tank over a high-low white t-shirtdress.  The tank was perfect coverage because of the dress' all mesh back, and I still stayed cool.  I finished the look with all white accessories and if this isn't inspiration enough read my 5 Festival Style Tips on Nylon.com.  Also, keep scrolling for some of my favorite pieces from the Mr. Brainwash Pop-up in Greenwich Village.

#BTSS with Aeropostale

I had the best time yesterday as a Teen Vogue ambassador for Aeropostale's Back to School Shopping Event.  They launched their new lines Tokyo Darling for girls and Brooklyn Calling for guys, along with Bethany Mota's new line!  The first thing I got to do after arriving was meet Bethany Mota, so the night started out on a pretty high note.  The energy in the store was amazing, there was dancing, selfies, and lots of laughter all round.  Check out the photos below to see some coverage of the event along with what I bought and how I am styling it for BTS!  

Old friends!
and some new friends!


How could I not smile after an event like that!

Me in my new outfit! I love my new faux leather pleated skirt and my polka dot top (from the boys section).  Always shop the entire store, you never know what hidden gems you will find.  What are you wearing for your first day of school?

On my last full day we had to visit Hollywood! It was extremely hot and my forehead is shining bright in all of these photos, I don't sweat I sparkle.  For a hot day of walking around I went with a super sweet mini and loose tank.  There are so many amazing ways to stay cool and still look great and this is the perfect pairing.  Don't judge me for wearing the same shoes, I packed the rest at the beginning of the week! I am finally home in Chicago but leaving again this afternoon.  If you will be in New York tomorrow, Monday July 27, I will be at the Aeropostale in Times Square from 6:30 to 8.  They will be launching their Fall line (BTS shopping!) and everything will be 20% off! Come say hey and take photos with me and you could be featured on Mermaid Waves! Hope to see your beautiful faces there.  

I Spy a Hollywood sign.

My trip would not have been complete without California Donuts.  Its a little window front in Koreatown and filled with color, sugary cereal, and the worlds fluffiest donuts you can imagine.

 Since it's my last week in LA, I have been trying to hit all the spots I wanted to visit.  Beverly Hills was obviously on the list.  I wore a super simplistic outfit in shades of pink and white, I love this tee, scroll down for a close up.  This laid-back look was perfect for a cool night of outdoor dining.  Rodeo Drive was seriously heaven for a girl like me, even though I will always be a window shopper.  Beverly Hills is basically the Upper East Side with Palm Trees and nicer weather, what more could a girl ask for!?

 Thats me!

We had a lovely dinner at Porta Via filled with veggies! Then to end the night we went to the Sprinkles Ice Cream.  I got a Sundae with a PB Chip cupcake and PB cup ice-cream, definitely a bucket list moment completed!
