Wednesday, January 28, 2015 Style before the Storm

Cardigan: My roommate's closet // Shirt/ Tank: Urban Outfitters // Jeans: Madewell //Boots: Zara // Hat: Brandy Melville
 
       When it comes to jeans, I'm pretty simple.  Grey, maroon, black, or distressed, I don't usually stray away from my well-worn pairs or my well-known makers (Tip:Topshop is the best by far), so when I came across these coated Madewell jeans that have ribbed knees, I kind of just hit the pay button and never looked back.  Now while I'm not really condoning impulse purchases because lets be honest, we need to conscious of our bank accounts, I do encourage you to step outside your comfort zone with pants, especially if they are coated or on sale. They are the perfect in between if you aren't feeling plain jeans but aren't quite ready for the all leather look. Also, an added bonus was that these bad boys were $30 instead of their original $150. What a steal!!
        Before Juno hit, I was dying to channel my inner bohemian princess and wear my Acne Jensen look-alike boots (only $50 at Zara) and decided to make it happen despite the weather outside.  I am literally so sick of wearing snow boots.  Anyways, I hope this serves as some style inspiration for when the weather warms up and for all of you in New England that got hit by the storm I hope you are staying safe inside! Stay lovely. xx
 

Sunday, January 25, 2015 Fashion Week or bust!


    Hi everyone! So if you didn't already know, I'm doing my senior capstone with my partner Juliana on the topic of fashion bloggers and their effects on consumerism and outfitting identities.  The final product will be a web documentary with a short feature film. We are hoping to change the way the world sees bloggers and also reveal the hidden secrets of the blogosphere. It's a topic that we are extremely passionate about and have loved researching so far, but one of our obstacles has been trying to get to New York Fashion Week. Without the support of sponsorships like most media producers, it is up to Juliana and I to come up with the funds to get to fashion week to film for our project and interview bloggers. We are relying on the generosity of friends and peers and maybe even fashion enthusiasts for donations! Sorry for just plugging this in randomly but any amount will help! :-)

Thursday, January 22, 2015 Camel and Class


Cardigan: Old Navy // Shirt: Brandy Melville // Skirt: J.Crew // Boots: Doc Martens // Scarf: Vintage // Belt: American Eagle

    Getting ready for class in the winter is one of the hardest things to do. When it's bitterly cold outside and the ground is covered in snow and salt, I have a hard time  convincing myself to don something other than my gym clothes and  L.L. Bean boots. I mean Vermont, c'mon, show the sun once in awhile!
    One of my favorite looks this winter is layering, and I mean like everything. In this outfit I wore fleece-lined tights (life savers!) with a  navy corduroy skirt  and striped crop top and added a cozy camel cardigan for extra warmth.  Instead of opting for winter boots, I paired the ensemble with my docs which are great for gallivanting in the snow because the salt wipes right off. Also, my Mum gave me this scarf while I was home over break and I love how vibrant the sapphire and navy hues are in it.  It definitely complements the leopard print, and I love to add a little funkiness to any neutral outfit.
    Hope everyone who is going back to school is taking it easy. Just remember it's almost Friday! (Thank fucking God) Stay lovely xx

Saturday, January 10, 2015 New Topshop 2015 Collection

    Topshop is bringing back 70s flare, and not only in the cut of their jeans. With Cara Delevingne's signature thick brows, high-collared blouse and striking snakeskin peep-toe pumps, edgy and effortless collide in Topshops 2015 campaign. Somehow they have managed to make the eccentric era of 70s look more fashion rather than flashy— a huge feat in my eyes! Out go the horrible mustard floral prints from That 70s Show and in come the classiness of a chic fur coat and the bad-assness of the leader of a biker gang.
    If I'm being honest, I won't be picking up any wide-legged jeans anytime soon but I am definitely lusting for a new leather jacket (which I don't need) and all the beautiful lace bralettes. I'd be more likely to throw on some leather pants or an overwhelmingly plush fuzzy coat before I step into the world of flare jeans again (eighth grade man, rough times). Topshop is one of my favorite stores to go to when I'm looking for new unique pieces and attempting to channel more high fashion for an affordable price.
    What do you guys think of the new campaign? Cara looks absolutely stunning! Let me know your thoughts. Stay lovely xx

Tuesday, January 6, 2015 Style Crush // Harry Styles

     So if you know me at all, you might know that I have very weird music taste. I know tons of obscure alternative rock and have a love for all kinds of music (except country, bleck) but my favorite guilty pleasure genre is pop. I'm talking about sugar-pop, cavity-aching kind of catchy and one of my go-to bands for that is One Direction.
     Putting their music aside and looking more at the singers themselves, I have found Harry Styles fashion aesthetic as one of my inspirations this new year. I mean even his last name has style in it.  From his daring red pin-striped Saint Laurent suit  at the BFA's to black sparkly boots, but not forgetting his well-worn beanies and distressed jeans, Styles has definitely been killing it on and off the stage.  Sometimes I think looking at men's style is a little more fun than looking towards your typical women socialites. It keeps life interesting! If you're trying emulate Harry in your wardrobe as well definitely take a look at Urban Outfitters and Zara, they have a lot of higher class pieces (without the high price) mixed with bohemian vibes to give the perfect essence of effortlessly stylish.


Sunday, January 4, 2015 Back to the future

    2015.

    A new year filled with new experiences, places, people, travels and has even been mentioned in my favorite flick: Back to the Future. It's a year that I scribbled on my entry forms to college, not even comprehending that one day it would be here and I would be graduating.  But, as much as I like a fresh start, I'm a bit hesitant to leave this year behind because it is one very close to my heart. It's the one that gave me London back.

    One year ago exactly I was in Heathrow Airport attempting not throw up and fighting the jet lag that was setting in as I made camp in a booth at Costa Coffee.  Through the turbulence, nausea, and customs line, I made it to London. This is not a city that I just decided to study abroad in half-hazardously, but had planned on coming back to since I was ten. After one family trip in 6th grade, I was sold. That's where my love affair with London started.

    The six months I spent there were indescribable. From going to a British university to travelling to 7 different countries, the amount of joy, discoveries and love I found was incredible and completely my own. I don't think any of my friends other than Emily ( my roommate in London/ travel-partner in crime) know how much that place means to me and how hard it is that I'm not going back. I was better there. A happier, more creative, lighter person than I find myself to be in America. But anyways, this post is to reflect some of last year's highlights in some snapshots.
