       Hello friends! I'm back with a little photo diary, which always makes me yearn to be back on vacation. As you have seen on my Instagram (@lostbuntfound), I recently went to Santa Barbara with my mom to escape the LA insanity and find some peace. When I say that Santa Barbara a) looked like Europe and b) felt like a sort of oasis, I am far from kidding. The moment we got out of the car and stepped foot on our hotel grounds, I was instantly inspired by the beautiful scenery and tropical colors. The hotel itself constitutes the majority of these photos, aside from a few shots at the beach and in the historic old mission of Santa Barbara. I also wanted to include a photo from a hike I did at Runyon Canyon a few weeks ago with my childhood friend Elliot! It was so exciting to have someone from my little town in New Jersey out here in California. Aside from the fact that we took the "expert" path by accident, dodging cacti and (apparently) RATTLE SNAKES, we had a blast catching up and walking around West Hollywood. 

It's only four days until I am finally free of summer classes! To be honest, I never thought I would see this day, meaning that I wasn't sure I would make it through a total of 12 units of courses. But here I am! Only my third midterm and two more lab quizzes stand between me and a mini break before a jam packed fall semester... aka more insanity! Yahooo!! Plus, I'll be going through sorority recruitment this fall semester, so I need to get to outfit planning because there's only a a few weeks until rush. If you guys would like to see what I wear for rush, just let me know in a comment! Hope you all are enjoying the end of July. xoxo Isabelle

      HI PEOPLE! If it wasn't for my number one fan (my mom) reminding me to do this post, I would probably have put it off in favor of trying to study oceanography (aka sitting and staring at my Quizlets) in hopes of surviving my very last summer class. As you guys know, I've been in LA all summer working and taking summer classes and, well, it's felt like an eternity. While all of my friends are yearning to return to school, I can't wait to escape campus. Last week, however, I saw my mom for the first time in two months and we took a little adventure to Santa Barbara for a few days. The second we arrived, I felt like I had been transported to an oasis far far away from LA and California in general. Although my science class was at the forefront of my worries, our various escapades in Santa Barbara were perfect distractions. From walking around downtown to hitting the zoo to seeking out Backyard Bowls açai bowls, we did everything we possibly could in 72 hours. A post is to come including many sunset beach pictures and breathtaking landscapes!

       Until that post, can we talk about just how cute this dress is? I have been on the hunt for cute summer dresses in preparation for sorority recruitment and this Free People number fits the bill. I think that I have at least five clothing items at this point which are off the shoulder; there's something so feminine about off the shoulder pieces plus it is an easy way to put your necklaces on display. Additionally, I've been having a bit of style crisis lately (first world problems, I know), not knowing where I really like to shop or what my outfit vibe is. Over the past few weeks, though, I have accumulated quite a bit of Free People from various department storesales, so maybe I am finding direction!! Fingers crossed! Hahah. Crazy enough, I only have about a month until fall semester starts so maybe I'll try to stop wearing athletic clothes everyday...emphasis on maybe. Jokes aside, where has summer gone and why have I been learning all summer? The world may never know. I'm off to get another chop & "study" some more! Hope you all are well. xoxo Izzy

Summer Look Inspiration & I'M BACK

Leave a Comment

     Hi everyone!! Long time no talk this morning, I was at Starbucks finally reading my blog email after weeks and checking when I last posted. It's safe to say that I was shocked that I posted almost over a month ago. My biggest fan (my mom) has been asking for new content and now I realize just how long I have been on a hiatus. My only explanation is that I have been working and taking classes and am without my photography friends to help me take outfit pictures. However, I am currently in between summer class sessions so I thought I'd take the extra time I have (that I'm not spending watching How to Get Away With Murder) to put together a summer outfit inspiration post! I've found that making these Polyvore sets a) makes me want to shop even more and b) allows me to imagine how I would dress if money wasn't an obstacle. Let me know in a comment below which look is your favorite (1, 2, or 3) and update me on your life!! Hopefully I'll be back with a new post soon. xoxo Isabelle
