Cologne Photo Diary

IMG_9237

Hello my lovely readers! Today’s post comes to you from the one square foot of space in my grandmas house that offers working internet (thank you neighbors). While I’ve mainly just been relaxing at her house before leaving for Northern Germany tomorrow (and really beginning my summer there), I did have the chance to spend about 20 hours in Cologne this week. I visited my cousin for a night and a day, and had quite a blast! I’ve already spent a lot of time in the city, and love it even more every time I visit. I didn’t take my DSLR with me, but snapped some shots on my iPhone. I hope you enjoy them!

10 Things To Do During A Long Layover

IMG_9180

Hello my lovely readers! This post is coming to you directly from London’s Heathrow airport, where I am currently enjoying the pleasure of a 5 hour layover before heading over to Germany. I did this exact same layover about 7 months ago, and this time around it is so much easier. So, I thought I’d share the tips and lessons I have learned that make the time go by much (much) faster. Enjoy, and I hope this helps some of you as you take off on your adventures this summer! :)

Summer Boyfriend Jeans

Hello my lovely readers! Currently I am sitting in Terminal 1 at London’s Heathrow airport, waiting for my flight to Germany. Only 3 more hours to go in this layover! I am officially moved away from Los Angeles!! Although leaving was hard, I am so excited to start my life in Europe. Here’s to new beginnings! Anyway, these photos were quickly taken in the week before I left. I wore this outfit to go mini-golfing with some friends. I love this look for summer, and think it’ll be perfect in Germany, where summers don’t get extremely hot. This look is simple and laid back, and I hope it inspires you to experiment with boyfriend jeans! I’m so glad that I finally got a pair. Enjoy! :)

Quick Update: Moving, Last Few Days in Los Angeles, Etc.

the fresh evening breath

Hello my lovely readers! I just wanted to give you a quick update as to what’s going on in my life, and what to expect from me these next few weeks. Right now I am in the process of packing up my life in Los Angeles for my new one in Europe. Leaving this weekend, I’m sure you can imagine that things have been quite stressful lately. I’m trying hard to get everything done for the move, and at the same time spend some last quality moments with all of the people I know here. So, I’m sorry if the posting will be a bit spotty.

Second, I will be staying at my grandmother’s for my first few days in Europe, and there’s really no saying how the internet will be there. I am hoping to schedule some posts during my layover at London’s Heathrow airport. Even if you don’t hear from me for a few days, no worries, great content is coming! :)

I hope all is well with you readers, and look forward going into this new chapter of my life with you.

Best,

Julia

Fashion In Film: Not Fade Away

maxresdefault

Ever since writing my last Fashion In Film post on Ginger and RosaI have been searching for another movie whose fashion inspired me just as much. Last night I finally found it, and am now thrilled to be creating a second Fashion In Film post (my first one is one of my all time favorites, and the most successful post on this blog). Today I’m focusing on Not Fade Away, “a 2012 drama film and the directorial debut of The Sopranos creator David Chase” (to quote Google). It stars John Magaro and Bella Heathcote. The film is “set in suburban New Jeresy [in] the 1960s” and follows “a group of friends [who] form a rock band and try to make it big” (to quote Wikipedia). For me, this movie really embodied the feel of the era it took place in, through the music, footage, and, above all, the clothes. A must see in every regard.
