When I shot this look, I knew I was going to call it rule breaker. The bizarre pattern-clashing, the athletic-inspired tee, and of course, the oversized flannel made naming this look all too easy. Sometimes my goal is to look like I'm the protagonist of a 90s movie, and I feel like I nailed it. Maybe I can go escape detention and challenge clique stereotypes. (jk I'm too much of a wimp to escape detention or even get detention in the first place LOL)

School has been crazy and my sleep levels have been on a steady decline, so why not shoot in the most important place: my bed. To be quite frank, all I want to do is catch some z's and/or watch Sherlock. Also this outfit kind of reminds me of pajamas?

Catch some z's y'all,
Kripa.

I've wanted to shoot in this dress for quite some time now, and I've finally had the opportunity! As a relatively androgynous dresser, sometimes it's fun to you know, be a girl. Plus, I'm at the point in my life where I'm trying to take risks. Not huge ones, not dangerous ones, but I'm trying to experiment with how I perceive the world and how others perceive me. For some people, that's putting on a dress, for others, that's opening up to people, and for yet others, that may mean trying that crazy indo-mexican-chinese place in the corner lot. Point is, if you want to move forward, you've gotta try something new.
Also, if you're looking for a new soundtrack, listen! Capital Cities is phenomenal, and I'm hopefully going to be seeing them in two weeks.

Have fun risk taking!,
Kripa.

I've been listening to a lot of the Naked & Famous lately, especially the song titled Young Blood. The sound is great, electronica paradise, but lately I've been hung on the words, especially "can't help myself but count these flaws // claw my way out of these walls // one temporary escape // feel it start to permeate." 
A painfully strong wave of wanderlust has washed over me, and I don't think this Coachella series has helped any. I just want to travel and meet people and while this is extremely cliche, I believe you can find yourself through travel. It's not until you see other places with people that don't know you that you realize your unchangeable characteristics, your idiosyncrasies, if you will, that comprise your personality. You know, the one that doesn't shift with location and context. 
Who knows, maybe I will manage to get out more.
