Fashion // Old Money

Happy Tuesday! I started a new job this week so I’m still adjusting to the schedule change. Here’s an outfit I put together with some old and new pieces. My favorite part of this outfit is my necklace: it’s actually a pound coin I brought back from London and stuck in a coin bezel. I spent New Year’s in London, and since I’m not really one for souvenir shopping, I decided to make this little memento of my trip!

Pretty scarf from The Scarf Shop, and the whole outfit is sort of styled around its colors. Hope you like! 6_the_most_happy_blog

Fashion // Tangerine Dreams

Okay, so fall may be here and that’s wonderful, but it’s still 80+ degrees round here. I’m not complaining, but I do sort of want to wear boots and stockings soon. Hear that, world?

I got this amazing, beautiful scarf from Banarsi Designs, and it’s perfect as a “transition” scarf, as is this outfit, which I put together as a mix of summer and autumn. I’m obsessed with this scarf’s colors, and I also love how light and airy it is. It’s a perfect early autumn statement scarf.

Paired with an old skirt, some cute clock necklaces I picked up at the San Gennaro festival on the Lower East Side, and lace-up boots!

Fashion: All the Universe

So, I’ve done a bad thing: I’ve mixed brown and black. BUT, here’s the thing, I love it. I don’t know who thought of the rule that brown and black shouldn’t be worn together, but I’m guessing he’s the cousin of the person who abhors white after Labor Day. I’m a rebel, what can I say.

Once again, this dress is borrowed/stolen from my sister’s closet! This necklace is quickly becoming one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. It’s a compass pendant my best friend bought for me as a Christmas gift. The Cambridge Satchel Company bag I have was a present from my cousin as well, so I’m wondering if there is a single item in this outfit I actually bought myself. Probably not 🙂123456dress from my sister, necklace from Etsy, boots from DSW, bag from Cambridge Satchel Company
