Tropical summer frost. Feather heat and hibiscus flowers. Rich oranges and purples in the air. Textured plants. Reflective sunglasses, crystal blue mirror images. Get ready for the summer frost. Wear flowers on your shorts and in your hair with liquid blue in your eyes. Summer's hot, are you?

I'm so inspired when it comes to the weather getting warmer. I start building my outfits around my sunglasses. What are your favorite type of sunglasses for this season? As I've said before, I'm really feeling the blue tinted mirror frames. I'm thinking of getting an aviator pair.

Let summer and sunglasses inspire you, kisses from Manhattan.

BLACK AND WHITE SUMMER HEAT

When I'm not running from Starbucks to the subway in a little sweater, aviators and platforms, you can usually find me in all black and white. Nothing is better to me than a pair of leather pants paired with a really nice white tee by Cheap Monday or Diesel. Not only is it subtle, but it's easy cool. Although with the heat coming our way, leather pants seem to become less and less of an option. I wanted to come up with a few summer looks that still keep that black and white cool, but matched with the rising temperatures. Here, I'm wearing mirror sunnies (one of my summer staples!), paired with a mesh tee by Nastygal and white zip shorts. I love mesh and zippers for summer as well. I like the harsh feel of them on a lightweight summer garment. What are your June staples?

School Daze. Raising hell in the hallways. High heels and uniform skirts. Drug store makeup and Lisa Frank stickers. Covering notebooks in boys names and glitter. Skipping lunch to ride to the beach. Boys in cars. Drinking champagne at prom. Girls in leggings in the hallways. Lunch time gossip. Ice cream and candy as a meal. Being girls, no boys allowed.

As many of you know, Rebecca Michelle worked with me this semester for her high school internship. She is a beautiful soul and a talented artist. I was so lucky to have her work with me for I HATE BLONDE. We had so much fun creating all the lovely images for this zine. Each photoshoot was an adventure. We actually had a prom, a beach adventure, etc, etc. All of this is just what we captured from the few days we spent together. I'm excited for to go off to art school in New York and discover herself as the beautiful artist she is.

Coolest girl on the block. Ride with me, shotgun. Windows down when the weather's hot. Drinking up with the AC on. Dolled up, makeup, she don't need a lot. Cute attitude with a her hands on her hips, licking all up on her lips, while she twists the la.

Rock and roll. Let summer burn on your skin. Deep sea sands and surfer blood on repeat. Aviator sunglasses and a sense of adventure. Hope brings adventure and vice versa. School's out for summer, hit the beach. Find your friends and walk along the coast. Tomorrow won't always be promised, so be the person that you look up to today.

GROW YOUNG

Grow young. We're up all night to get lucky. The gift of life keeps on giving. We've come to far to give up who we are, so we say screw a day job. Screw doing anything that involves sitting behind a desk. The human body was made to do great things. It was made for exploring the world. The heart is too strong to hide under a tie behind a desk. Grow guts, and work for yourself. Make you dream a reality and let go. No one person writes the rules for life, you have to be your own author. You have to live with all your heart until it pours out of you.

Sorry I've been away my loves, but... I am proud to announce to you all that I am officially a college graduate! It feels so so good! My graduation weekend was so beautiful. My family came into town and we spend the weekend in a penthouse on the 25th floor downtown laying in bed, ordering room service and laughing together. I don't know what I would do without them. They make it possible for me to follow my dreams. I think the day I grew up was the day I stopped believing that they were somehow trying to hold me back or work against me. I realized that they really just want me to be happy. They want me to be healthy and wear a big smile. My dad always says, "I'd love you if you just breathed in and out." I think that's important. It makes it so that everything I accomplish, I do so for me. Not for Mom, Not for Dad, Not for Uncle Ed, for ME!

Basically what I'm saying is follow your passion with all your heart. Let your art kill you. Express yourself until you pass out and then wake up and do it all over again. I plan on spending this summer figuring out just what I want to do with this blog, where my next steps are, and loving the people around me.

Remember, if you are an artist, that's incredibly powerful. People are scared of you. People are frightened by people who actually have what it takes to live what they love.

Wednesday Weed Ambition. Think what the fuck I do, go anything to do with you? Hat low in drive mode. Eyes wide open for the fakes. Fuck you, I don't know you. Wake up in the morning with no weed to smoke, but I got ambition to toke. One dream. In the front now, cause I passed you. Stand alone in your section. Drew a line, then I crossed it. Cruise slow, don't look back. Focused and I'm on. Know what you're chasing and enjoy chasing it.

We higher than the milky way. The moon is shining up in the sky, and we're right there with it. Milk + pizza for dinner, then you head out for the night. Stepped outside on some, "yep, let's start this." But you didn't get very far. Rather jump on the bed and throw smile face cookies down the street. And then we're drifting off to the land of dreams, magical mushrooms, life-sized medical plants. For now everything seems right, so hit the lights please.

The magic of prom. As many of you know, the wonderful artist and high school student, Rebecca Michelle has been working alongside me for the past couple weeks. Last weekend, she was suppose to go to her prom on Saturday night. Since she's wise beyond her years, and out of every boy's league at her school, we decided to throw our own prom. Inspired by Tavi + the Rookie Yearbook, we decorated my apartment in pastels and lights. We served chocolate strawberries and champagne. We played 90s music and wore plastic crowns. Rebecca was the prom queen of course, and I decided to dress up as her boy date. Thanks to our prince of peace, for conveniently sending me a bunch of bow tie inspired dresses just a prior. And thank you to all my lovely friends for coming out and making it a magical evening. I feel very blessed to be surrounded by such beautiful and artistic people.

Candy overdose. Sour gummy sunshine. After-school adventures. Thirteen and cursing down Melrose. Running on nothing but a sugar high. Covered in all pink, plush animals and little leggings. Stealing skittles with hearts in our eyes. Big sunglasses and plastic purses. This is the American Teen Dream.

My daddy raised one hell of a bitch. He said that everything that shines ain't gold. And I don't pray out loud like him, but I know that my God heals. Heart switches to cold. Radiate vibes off the sun, not a human being. Here comes the sun. Don't give a fuck, simply.

Fuck all the talk, we're dripping acid. Technicolor girl. Snapback and bad bitch cuff, you know the uniform. It's not my style to be taken alive. I'm out of my mind all the time. Surely, I'll do what I want. Crystal clear clouds and gold. A rainbow hurricane, dripping colors falling into your brain in pallets of your past. Suicide blonde. Kill everyone you have been and create something new.

Trap all day, play all night. Every time I go out, you know I gotta show out. Light up platforms. Take me to your dealer. Up all night. Underground girls. Club kids that look out of this world. Black eyes. White hair. Crushing on girls who are boys and boys who are girls. Neon adventure kids. Weed don't give a fuck. And bitch, keep your chin up. Turn this music up. Leave the crib, out of your league. Dedicated to life on earth. High rider with a hell of an aim. I am what I am, you can like it or love it.
