Our good friend, Michelle, finally agreed on making an appearance on Flying Neon Lights! Read her blurb below for her outfit description:
“Hi everyone! You are probably wondering what 37.79° N, 122.39° W means. 37.79° N, 122.39° W are the coordinates for the city of San Francisco, which are also the symbols engraved on my necklace. I thought this would complement well with the scenery at Turtle Hill, a vantage point overlooking San Francisco from the Sunset District. For the casual outing at the 16th Street Steps, I decided to pair a floral top with basic denim wear and comfy birks. Thanks for visiting!” -Michelle

As you can probably tell, Amanda and I have been expanding this blog by deciding to feature more guest bloggers! Two of my good friends Donald and Rizky have decided to style the denim jacket; read on for their descriptions and styling of this timeless piece!
“Hi guys I’m Tiff’s friend Donald. It was kind’ve a coincidence that we were both wearing similar outfits because I didn’t meet up with everyone until later in the day. This picture is pretty representative of an everyday fit for me; I usually wear almost all monochrome, with one piece in an earth tone like olive, navy, or maroon sometimes so I don’t get bored. Caps have helped a lot with this, because I’m usually too lazy to do anything to my hair, which I’m trying to grow out in a topknot. My thought process going through my fits always starts inside layer to outside layer, matching each piece to whatever I already have on. I really like the denim jacket in these pics, I got it off grailed, a site for people to sell used clothing, already distressed for me and I was very lucky that it fit me the way I wanted it to. My racers also get a lot of wear from me since black and white are pretty easy to pair with most colors. Check out my blog at http://yi-fu.tumblr.com“
“Hey everyone, I’m Tiff’s good friend Rizky. I’m usually wearing sweaters and more casual clothing but I wanted to do something different. I decided to experiment with a denim on denim outfit. It was important that the two denim pieces were of different shades so that they would work compliment each other perfectly. To be more subtle with my outfit, I threw on a black tee with a simple graphic text along with my favorite pairs of shoes at the moment. I wanted to have a subtle outfit with the red heart on my shoes standing out. I think one thing to note is that a denim jacket is a simple piece of clothing that has a lot of versatility. Even though I don’t wear it as much as I should, I think everyone should own a piece in their arsenal. I don’t usually dress up like this but I was really feeling myself this day.

It’s been a long time coming…Amanda and I are excited to feature our first male blogger! Nariman is a good friend of mine and we have been so excited to collaborate featuring his unique style; read on for a description of his outfit and inspirations!
“Believe it or not, I used to exclusively wear Hawaiian shirts when I was in high school. I only recently started caring about looking more presentable, and paying more attention to clothes that I wear. As is evident by the images, I am a huge fan of patterns and interesting prints in many areas of my outfit. I feel that clothing helps build into first impressions, and so I choose clothing that I not only like, but represent my personality as well. As I continue to explore all the wonderful artists and brands that put out clothing, I hope to continue wearing things that are comfortable, durable, and aesthetically interesting.”
Today, we have a very special guest blogger, my apartment mate Sam! She has a laidback, boho style which reflects her personality well. She just started a blog, so head over to A Garden of Gold to support her! (Click here!)-Amanda
“In the pictures above, my friends and I explored Melrose Avenue after having a sushi dinner. It was a pricey, yet quality restaurant called Tsuri, with amazing waiters, waitresses, and service. I put together a mix of summer/fall outfit with a loose look to it. To contrast the white top and light shoes, I decided to put on dark lips. Thanks for visiting!

“Sf is notorious for 65 degree summers and breezy days so I always have to be strategic in what I wear – something light enough for the sun but warm enough for the wind. Today I picked out a plain white tee with an accent pocket and paired it with simple black leggings. To pull the look together, I chose black ankle booties and threw on some silver necklaces to add some bling. You can never go wrong with the simple, clean, black and white look. It’s classy – but without the effort. Thanks for checking in and I hope y’all are enjoying the rest of your summer!”

Hey everyone! This week I’d like to feature my good friend Leanna! With summer well underway, Leanna decided to feature a go-to and comfortable outfit for warm and sunny days. Her style reflects her optimism and down to earth personality; keep reading for her description and keep your eyes peeled for her second outfit! — Tiffany ______________________________________________________________________ “Summer means shorts, crop tops, and dress weather! My personal favorites are dresses because they’re no fuss and you don’t have to match a top or bottom, plus they’re airy and light enough for the hot, sticky weather. I paired a cute floral dress with my white Birkenstocks for a day at the Cal State Fair. To hold everything I brought to the fair, I carried a small orange backpack. And of course, you can’t forget sunglasses! Thanks for checking in and I hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather this week!”

“Hey y’all! feel like these two outfits reflect me the best… when I’m not wearing sweaters and adidas pants to classes that is. Edgy-Vintage and a little street sometimes never hurt nobody! I let my mood choose my outfits and vice versa. Go crazy with your outfits! “Look good, do well,” is what I always say. Thank you for reading!
A simple top with some distress jeans and vans are always a life savior for me with the jersey as a bonus! Of course don’t forget the street accessories necessities!”
