Chin Up, Kid

 Top: Forever 21, Shorts: American Apparel, Shoes: Converse, Necklace: Detroit Trash

Monday, Monday. Hi lovelies, how is everyone doing? I've been...well, let's just say that the title of today's post is the advice I've been receiving quite a bit lately, and that I'm trying to keep in mind :) The holidays are upon us, and I don't know about you guys, but I'm still pitifully behind in my holiday shopping. I will try to focus on some quick tips throughout the week for easy holiday gift ideas for any other last minute shoppers! 

Today, I am wearing a pretty boss Kid n' Play cropped tee. It's 90s to the max and I love it. It's easy, it's comfy, and for some reason I have a thing for wearing this top while traveling. Not sure why, I just do. 

The corduroy shorts are American Apparel, and they actually run a little big. I've had this pair for several years and they're a very loose fit on me now. But I like how soft they are, and unlike other corduroy bottoms, these are not restricting in mobility at all. I highly recommend you get a pair, or several ;)

To top it, I'm wearing this awesome long necklace by Detroit Trash. (
I found this company during L.A. ArtWalk downtown last September, and I was immediately drawn to their booth. Each of their necklaces are handmade with vintage items. For instance, the key on mine is over 100 years old that they found and added to the necklace. You can ask them to customize your necklace with whichever adornments you prefer that they have. I love that each piece has a history and a uniqueness that is individualized just for you. These guys know what they're doing, and you'd be remiss if you don't pay them a visit :)

 Alright BBs, there's a lot to do this week, and I must get to it! I'll see you all on Wednesday.
