Laters May!



I cannot believe today is the last day of May. I feel like it was just January... it's really so scary how fast time flies by, especially as you get older. That's why we really have to enjoy our youth before it's all gone! Anyways, I wanted to share my favorite outfit posts from this month with you, please let me know what your faves were! Love hearing all of your thoughts. So I'm super excited for June to begin as I'll be off from school until October! Talk about a long summer... hey, I've got no complaints about that! Ah need to get all of my finals over with now! I'm starting my summer internship at Lucky Magazine in New York in about two weeks, I'm so incredibly stoked. Working for a fashion magazine has always been a dream of mine so I know this will be an amazing experience and a great way for me to really get my foot in the door. I'll definitely be keeping you updated with that once it begins. For now, I'm going to enjoy my last few weeks in LA since I'll be in NY for two whole months. Hope you have a great weekend and don't forget to smile & laugh as much as you can! Infinite x's & o's, A.

The Great Gatsby



So I finally went to go see "The Great Gatsby" this past weekend and I absolutely loved it. I read the book back in 11th grade and I'll admit, I wasn't so enthused by it then, but now after seeing the film, I want to read the book again - it was that amazing. Leonardo DiCaprio is my all-time favorite actor, so I have no complaints about seeing him on the big screen. From the soundtrack, to the fashion, to the overall tragic love story behind it, this film was nothing short of spectacular in my eyes. I wanted to share a few of my favorite quotes from the film with you all and I highly suggest you go see it whenever you can! I promise you will not be disappointed, gotta give it to Baz Luhrmann! Xx, A.

“I hope she'll be a fool - that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” 
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” 
"They're a rotten crowd... You're worth the whole damn bunch put together."
“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.” 
“I was within and without. Simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.” 
"I wish we could just run away... I wish I had done everything on earth with you."

Under Construction





Wearing: Shirt - American Apparel, Shorts - Urban Outfitters, Sweatshirt - Brandy Melville, Boots - Timberland

Happy Monday everyone!! So here is another guest post, featuring my adorable friend, Ilana! We are both currently obsessing with these rad-ass Timberland boots... I mean how could you not? I wore them when I was little, if only I could still fit into those! No but I'm really thinking of ordering a pair for myself... I can't decide whats cooler, these or Docs. I know the Tims look super masculine, but hey you can totally make them look sexy, with the right outfit that is. Whenever I see a pair, I immediately think of construction workers (preferably cute ones). Well I hope you all enjoyed this guest post and I'd love to know your thoughts on the comeback of the Timberland boot trend! Xx, A.

TGIF. Ugh such a long week... so happy it's finally the weekend! With school ending soon, the projects have just been piling on like no other. No worries, nothing gets in the way of me and my blog! I'll make sure I have plenty of outfit posts for you guys within the next few weeks, even when I'm studying my tush off for finals! Summer, I'm impatiently awaiting your arrival, incase you wanted to know! Anyways, onto the outfit here. These orange jeans are one of my favorite items, as they really make every outfit, whether you're wearing a tribal print top like this one or just a plain white tank... they'll always work their magic! I hope everyone has a lovely Memorial Day weekend! Thank you to all of those beautiful brave souls who have served in America's military and who have continuously fought for our freedom. Xx, A.

Pinspiring Pins







Hi everyone! I just wanted to share some of my favorite street style pins of the week with you! I really enjoy sharing these with you guys every now and then, as I feel it's always good to change it up from my own personal style and show off what other fashionistas are rocking these days. Like I always say, there's no such thing as too much inspiration. Hope you all love these outfits as much as I do... I know that I will certainly be adding some of these items to my wish list (don't mind if I do). All I can say is, my poor wallet. Whatevs!! Lastly, please be sure to follow me on Pinterest @amandanort if you are not doing so already, that way you can stay updated with all of my pins!! Xx, A.

Let Love Rule



Wearing: Shirt - Wildfox, Blazer - Gentle Fawn (gifted), Shorts - H&M, Shoes - Necessary Clothing, Sunnies - H&M

Another gifted piece from Gentle Fawn - this lovely blazer. It's seriously the perfect transition piece for this season, as it's so lightweight and it goes with everything in my wardrobe. I love the baggy, unstructured fit of it - gives it more of that boyfriend look don't you think? If you can't see so clearly, my Wildfox tee says, "let love rule." This shirt is definitely a vintage inspired gem, throwing me back to the good ol' Woodstock days, when love, peace, and music conquered all. Hey, I'm all about that. Love trumps everything, in my world at least. X, A.

Royal Silk



Wearing: Shirt - Brandy Melville, Shorts - Mezzanine, Jacket - Theory, Boots - Jeffery West

Happy Monday my chic geeks! Took these pictures over the weekend, don't you just adore these shorts? I spotted them in Wasteland recently and instantly fell in love. You can totally dress them both up & down... I decided to dress them down here with a denim jacket and a pair of edgy ankle boots. This black crop top from Brandy is certainly coming in handy lately (that unintentionally rhymed). Lots of new outfit posts coming this week for you all!

Neverland



Wearing: Shirt - Necessary Clothing, Shorts - Rockstar Denim, Sunnies - Target, Boots - Jeffery West

So I decided to title this post, "Neverland" - as this shirt (especially the collar) reminds me so much of Peter Pan. For those of you who sadly missed out on that Disney classic, "Neverland" is a magical place where you never grow up. There's always times when I feel like going to a place like that, where time doesn't matter and you can just stay young forever. We all have stresses in life and sometimes feel that we want to be little again and return back to the days when life was simpler and more carefree, but as Carrie Bradshaw says, "the best we can do is breathe and reboot." Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.. um how is it almost June? Ahhh slow down life! Infinite x's, A.

What I Like About You



Wearing: Shirt - Forever 21, Shorts - Levi's, Sunnies - H&M, Bag - H&M, Spike Bracelet - ASOS

Hello my chic geeks.. hope everyone is having a great week so far. I've been doing some shopping lately - not a lot, just a few goodies here and there. Hey.. every once in awhile, a girl has to indulge herself, right? I bought this graphic tee at Forever 21, don't you just love the vintage feel of it? I know I do. I'm really digging this badass, rocker look - so classic and timeless. Scored these sunnies for just $6 at H&M.. oh how I love a good bargain! Cannot get enough of the mirrored frames - so retro! More new outfit posts coming your way this week!
