AMERICANA SUMMER

Old habits die hard, which is exactly why I'm not kicking this one... you know what I'm talking about. My flag-print shorts. I want to say that this is a practical festival look, but I'm wearing long-sleeves, so unless you fancy sweat stains and heat stroke, I wouldn't recommend this exact outfit for Coachillin'! But I'm digging the general idea... American spirit and denim are two constants in a staple April fashion equation where the answer is always HELL yes. Get your devil's fingers up, guard down, tongue out, and earbuds in... crank the Areosmith, start your car, spend the next four months road trippin' across the West Coast. I know I'll be back and forth between Las Vegas and LA for a while, and that's EXACTLY how I want to spend my vacay. Cruising through tumbleweeds and into the paradise that is Los motherfreakin' Angeles. Finally it's my time again... I'll never take a California second for granted.


















FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Wide brim hat - Zara
Circle sunnies - 80s Purple
Silver cross necklace - THIS IS TRANSITION
Black cross necklace - RINGS AND TINGS
Denim blouse - SHEINSIDE
Belt -Brighton
Shorts - ROMWE
Ankle boots - YES STYLE

I used to have an oversized Ralph Lauren denim blouse but my mom hated how big it was on me and gave it away. So cruel... she brought it into my life, and she took it out. That was one of the first articles of clothing I had that made me interested in 'alternative fashion.' Before that, I struggled to make the clothes from my tacky prepster exoskeleton look "indie" as my mother refused to replace my old wardrobe with new apparel from the likes of Urban Outfitters and "Am Appy" (as we called it in its 2009 golden age.) Over time, I started earning enough money to buy myself solid v-necks, but this particular Ralph Lauren blouse marked my segue into taking alternative dress seriously enough to open up a Lookbook account. And look at me now! Thank you, oversized Ralph Lauren blouse. Rest in peace.

Everything is infinite,

Bebe Zeva
