Monday, February 23, 2015 the hobo sweater

 Sweater: UO- Sold Out (similar here) // Dress: Brandy Melville //Boots: Doc Martens  // Beanie: Anthropologie (similiar here)

   Everybody loves a comfy sweater, am I right? Where the cuffs are worn, the material softened, all while keeping you warm during the freezing winter.  My favorite happens to be reminiscent of a  hobo sweater. The extremely over-sized, on the bridge of looking hipster-chic but has the vague essence of a hobo kind of cardigan.
   This one happens to be from Urban Outfitters (surprise, surprise!) and my roommate's (thanks, Biz!) and it is the perfect in-between sweater. Yesterday it was a whopping 30 degrees outside, which is practically tropical considering its been below zero for the past decade. I decided to romp around with Juliana outside the townhouses and do a style shoot considering it's been awhile since I last did one on campus. The attention we got from our neighbors while we took photos was hilarious and slightly embarrassing, but I think they came out great regardless of the awkward pauses we had to take while a car passed by!
   If it's warming up where you are and you need a it's cold-but-also-kinda-warm ensemble , I highly recommend pairing your favorite cardigan with a comfy dress, and finishing it off with tights + combat boots.  The result is always comfy and cute--two things that are necessary for every outfit of mine! Definitely check out Brandy Melville if you are looking for affordable spring dresses. I lived in this white Alena dress all summer--it's the perfect balance between insanely comfortable and dressy.  
   As always I hope you all are having a great start to your week! Stay lovely. xx
Being a goon.

 Long time no talk guys! I'm sorry for neglecting the blog a bit, senior year has definitely exceeded my expectations as to how much work I can actually handle.  Needless to say, it's been a crazy couple of weeks but after a lot of snow, flights changes, and boxes of tissues, I made it to NYFW!  I want to take a moment to thank anyone who helped my senior seminar partner, Juliana, and I get there, I truly and deeply appreciate your generosity. You have no idea what a dream come true it was for us both and what it meant for our project. I get a little teary eyed thinking about all the love and support you all give me! I am one blessed chickita.
   Now onto the fashion!  Here is what I wore to the first day of fashion week.  It was the perfect time to whip out my metallic midi dress, but it was fucking freezing so I really wish I had been wearing a parka.  Fashionable, right? Anyways we spent the entire day taking photographs and videoing the events.  By a sad strike of fate we didn't get into the shows, but being there was just as beneficial! We saw a lot of notable bloggers and extremely well-dressed men  and basically played paparazzi for the day.
   Although we were in New York City for less than 24 hours, it was an extraordinary trip and experience to see our project playing out in real life! Definitely worth the hit my bank account took and the really shitty cold I have now. I'll be posting some of the pics later in the week once I catch up on all the classwork I missed. If you want to keep up with my project you can look on the website, here!
