Crossing the Line | Denim Jacket + Dress + Espadrilles + Straw Bag

Friday, June 21, 2019

Daaaamn. Time is flying. It's somehow the first day of summer... And we are already more than halfway through 2019. How? How is that possible? These past few weeks have been especially busy. It feels like I've barely even been home – and I work remotely, so I'm already home more than the average person! For Memorial Day Weekend, Matt and I road tripped with the pups up to Las Vegas for our dear friends' wedding shower. Then last week I flew to the east coast for my work's annual all-staff retreat in Pennsylvania. Then this Sunday Matt and I are headed to Europe! YAY, YAY, YAY! We are off to Dublin, Barcelona, Santorini (this time around for the previously mentioned friends' nuptials!), and Paris. Honestly, though, this trip completely snuck up on us... and so I don't feel super prepared – but hey! That's half the adventure anyway, right?

Oh! And this is our first international trip since going vegan, so if you have any tips and/or recommendations for any of those cities, pleeease share!

If my roots throughout this outfit post are giving you major anxiety and/or a stomachache, rest assured that I have since gotten them taken care of. I had to get my hair right for our travels! 💁

I'll see you in July (if life slows down at all post-vaca 😉)!

Crop It Like It's Hot | Knit Top + Printed High-Waisted Pants + Mules

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Wait. How is it already halfway through the fifth month out of 2019? Mind-blowing... And speaking of mind-blowing – how is there only one episode left of Game of Thrones ever?! Time is flying too quickly. Which is also why it's been extra hard for me to fit in LunaVida posts – and for that, I am very sorry! But I'm back today with an #OOTD that is very "Art Teacher Chic" if you ask me. Doesn't this outfit look like (a hopefully cooler version of) something your 7th-grade art teacher would've worn but, like, with a paintbrush tucked behind her ear? ...Maybe I have too much of an imagination... but regardless, I am iiinto this new trend of comfy, breezy, wide-leg pants!

Black knit crop top with side zippers (also seen here): ASOS

Print high-waist cropped pants with tie: American Eagle
[similar - on sale for under $16!]

Nude mules: American Eagle

Gold aviator sunglasses (here): Old Navy

Gold statement collar necklace (also seen here, here, and here): H&M

Gold bracelets (also seen here, here, and here): Target, c/o oNecklace, and c/o Blue Sunflowers

Do you watch GoT? (If so, what are your theories?!) Are you into the lightweight, baggy pants trend? If you're not a fan, I get it. But I also recommend trying on a pair – because, honestly, this level of non-pajama comfort is unparalleled.

Super Bloomin' | Military Jacket + Tee + Ripped Jeans + Eco-Friendly Sneakers

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Happy (belated) Earth Day! 🌍 Being an activist (by profession and as a personal choice), the planet – and all of its inhabitants – are constantly at the forefront of my mind. A thought I often find myself wondering is, what if we all just thought of every single day as "Earth Day"? Can you imagine what we could get done? If we always recycled. If we always remembered our reusable shopping bags and metal straws. If we always picked up all of the litter we saw on our walks. If we always ate plant-based foods.

Can you just picture that for a second?

It may be a fantasy, but the thought alone nevertheless warms my cold, cold heart. And you know what? We can do it. In the end, it's not really up to corporations or organizations or governments. It's actually up to us as individuals to rise up and demand the changes we want to see by actually doing. So let's do. All of us. The future depends on it.

Ripped skinny jeans (also seen here, here, and here): Target

Reebok "Cotton and Corn" white vegan tennis shoes: Amazon
I first learned about these eco-conscious shoes thanks to one of my favorite plant-based blogs, Fashion Veggie. They are so comfortable and go with everything –– but best of all, they are 100% vegan and made out of organic cotton and corn!
Matt and I are traveling to Europe again this summer (YAY!), and these babies will for sure be making the journey with me. They make for the best walking shoes ever. I can't recommend them enough!

Pink print bandana scarf: J.Crew

Cognac belt (also seen here, here, and here): Gap

Handmade multicolored woven tote bag: Urban Outfitters

14K gold layered necklaces (also seen here, here, and here): c/o Sivado Studio

24K gold personalized Roman Numeral cuff bracelet (also seen here, here, and here): c/o oNecklace

Things got a little heavy at the top there ^^ 😅 But I figured these STUNNING yellow flowers and the coastal views would help lighten the mood – and remind us the beauty of this very planet we are fighting for. Because, my oh my, Mother Earth really is a special lady.

Favorite Florals | Bomber Jacket + Crop Top + Ripped Levi's

Friday, April 12, 2019

Long time, no see -- especially in the realm of outfit posts, eh? I won't lie to you. Since I work from home 90% of the clothes I wear are sweatpants. Another 5% are yoga pants for going to the gym. And that leaves just 5% of my life that I actually wear "real" clothes for, hence the lack of OOTDs to share 🙆

Life has also been spectacularly busier than normal. Matt and I spent the weekend before my birthday up in a snowy cabin with the dogs in Big Bear Lake (which I intend to eventually share a travel guide for because we LOVED it up there!). I started my new job the day after we got back and then was it was off to Pennsylvania the week after for five days for a work retreat. Then when I came home to San Diego, I got to see Cirque du Soleil for the first time (which was just as fun as everyone says it is), I relished in spring, Matt and I redid our backyard garden due to said relishing in springtime, etc, etc, etc. You see, really, I've just been living life. And I'm still getting my footing with the new routine. But LunaVida is always in the back of my mind -- and it's the first task I do when I have extra time. So here we are now! I have a free night that doesn't call for Zumba class or having to be social (#IntrovertProbs) or simply lacking the extra energy due to the pure exhaustion that sometimes comes from life as a working adult. So anyway, I hope you enjoy the first vegan fashion post up on LunaVida since February (👀)

Now that I'm (finally) back with an outfit post, I'm curious: what are your favorite types of LunaVida posts to see? Personal style? Vegan living? Cruelty-free gift guides? General life updates? Please let me know so that I can make sure I'm writing posts you actually want to see!

Hoping your spring has been off to a fantastic start so far -- and continues to keep up that way!
