A Horse With No Name

"The heat was hot and the ground was dry. But the air was full of sound. I've been through the desert on a horse with no name. It felt good to be out of the rain." - America

Greetings fashion followers, from my three month hiatus from the blogging world (all blame attributed to school and work). Though now that I am liberated from the calls of higher education for the summer - hello shopping...er, exercising, yeah, I think that's what I meant to say.

This post pays "tribute" to my stay in the city of angels, or as English and Spanish speaking-alike Americans call it, Los Angeles - not to be confused as the "best city" or "America's greatest city", that's obviously Manhattan. All jokes aside, I must say I have fallen in love with the West Coast. Temperatures are high, humidity is down, everyone shops at Farmer's Markets. And, like NYC, you never know who or what you're going to run in to.

Head West about 100 miles and we've entered the high desert, which spurred my inspiration for this post! Bringing in a comfortable, rugged vibe with the ripped jeans and modern "cowboy hat", this outfit embodies the perfect mindset - a relaxed woman who can conquer even the roughest, toughest duel. The white sweater adds a slight dimension to the look and threads the individual pieces as a whole, stylish high-desert outfit. 

The shirt by Banana Republic and the pants by H&M. All of these pieces were brought together from multiple consignment stores and gifts (aka the best kind of shopping for a college student)!

Bonus: This location is also where the original Star Trek TV series was filmed!
