Happy Birthday to me!



This past Friday (July 20) I turned 23. I also had an interview earlier that day and ended up having zero time to snap any decent pictures, but I wanted to share a few instagram photos that we managed to get just to show off my outfit and my all of my beautiful friends who made it out. The dress I'm wearing was purchased in the Fashion District of downtown LA for just $40! My favorite new spot to dig for cute styles that can be found at places like Forever 21, Nordstrom, Nasty Gal, and various boutiques for half the price or even less! Let me know what you think!

Bikini Love.

Summer may be half over, but in Southern California it's important to always have a great bikini close at hand for impromptu beach trips or late night pool dips when the weather is un-seasonably warm (most of the year). Fortunately (or unfortunately), my pinterest addiction has lead me to a number of cuter-than-I-could-ever-hope-for options. Take a look and let me know what you think!

IG Snapshots.


Hi guys! I was importing a ton of photos from my Iphone today and thought I'd share a few shots. I'm a total instagram junkie and pretty much just like to take pictures of everything all the time. If you don't already follow me on instagram my handle is @miekenpetra, search for me and lets be friends!

my pup likes to hide behind things.
gorgeous LA skies.
some favorite arm candy.
favorite date night dress. (although I just bought a really cute one for my birthday this weekend!)
OOTDs!
breakfast and magazines.
And a few snaps of going out looks over the past couple weeks!


I also wanted to let you guys know that I'm currently selling a few items on Copious! I have a pair of gently used Jeffrey Campbell Brisbane Booties up in a size 7 that are ultra chic for fall, and a pair of super cute Helmut Lang white jeans in a size 30 that I'm hesitantly getting rid of because they are too big for me!
feel free to hop on over and take a look!

Hi! I've been pretty absent from the blogging world for quite a while, but I finally decided to take this thing seriously and make it what I've always wanted. My first post back in the is a little summer-y outfit post featuring one of my favorite flowy white tops and leather sandals with a wooden heel that are uber comfortable. And of course I have my trusty Rebecca Minkoff MAC in the perfect summer color that I scored at a recent sample sale in Silverlake. Enjoy!
