Fashion // I can hear sirens

Today’s outfit is another work-appropriate one featuring some brand-new styles from Statement Boutique. First, these daisy-printed cotton pants I’m obsessed with, and then this chiffon vest I love! I paired it with a pair of blush sandals from Jeffrey Campbell.

Both these pieces are courtesy of the online boutique Statement Boutique. The owner, Nina, decided to open a digital store to provide unique pieces of clothing that were appropriate in both professional settings and casual ones, which I think this outfit perfectly mixes.

Fashion // Noir

Put this outfit together, looked in the mirror, and thought of Taylor Swift circa 2012. So I put on some red lipstick and went with it! (Also because my hair is straight here!) Wearing some old pieces I found, since I’m not shopping right now, and one of my newly-acquired Kylie Lip Kits (I’m a huge fan.)

I love high-waisted anything, and this outfit also reminded me of another much-loved icon, Zooey Deschanel. So really, this is very me! Hope you like.

Fashion // Play my music, watch you leave

This is my excited-for-spring, Easter outfit. The trees are BLOOMING in full force, and when spring comes around I can’t help but get giddy for all the clothes I shall wear. I like how this outfit is a mix of dark, winter pieces and lighter, airy spring pieces. I also love the color combination of burgundy and this deep, rosy coral. Finding this color combo made me v. happy. Hope you like it!

Fashion // The past and pending

Lately, in an effort to not shop so much, I’ve been trying to repurpose old things. In that spirit, last week I found this dress that I bought last year but never wore! I tend to buy things on a whim and then wonder if I can pull it off. Luckily, I really liked the way this shirt dress looked, paired with a thick black belt with gold accents. I added more gold highlights here and there to reinforce the look, and with the Posie K lip color, I think I tied it together well!

Also: STRAIGHT HAIR. I just had it cut, and so I had that new-haircut swagger. Instant confidence, am I right?

Fashion // Calendar girl

One of the things I love best about fashion/personal style is using color to express a mood. I love creating color palettes with my clothes, and using those colors to evoke a season or a feeling. I’m a very color-oriented person, and I go through stages where I’m drawn to a certain color, and I use that whenever I do anything creative, fashion included.

Obviously, these are all very classic fall colors, but there’s something about the nude shades with the reds, oranges, and pinks that makes me feel peaceful. It’s also an excuse to rock some awesome red lipstick, something I don’t do often enough!

I wore this outfit to dinner with my family last week. I hope you like it. 2 23 15 3 19 22 6

Fashion | Summer Wine

This is probably one of the last actual summer outfits I’ll do this year. August is almost over. 🙁

Instead of shopping at the end of the season I tried to do some restyling with old pieces. These shorts are from Forever 21 but they never fit me before this year, and the top was cut from a dress that didn’t fit! This outfit happened because I pulled random things out of my closet and found that they worked — surprisingly.
