Black Fall

Fun fact: I got dressed in the dark this morning and getting dressed in the dark is a perfectly good excuse for rocking a black and white outfit. To be honest, the dramatic air of the color combo doesn’t really need any specific reason to be integrated into anyone’s attire beyond the fact that it always looks cool, but it’s especially great when you’re having one of those mornings. I decided to mix things up a bit in the outfit by pairing it with my new favorite beanie from Forever 21 for a little bit of extra warmth. Thus, my fall aesthetic is on and going stronger than ever.

Fan of Flannel

My flannel shirt has consistently remained one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. It’s soft and comfortable which means I kind of wish I could wear it everyday, but I realize that following through with that thought would amount to some future problems in terms of cleanliness. That being said, I do still were this shirt a lot which brings on the question of how to keep it “hip” and “fresh” when I’m putting it on once a week. This week I decided to spice it up with a floral necklace from Forever 21, which is just bulkly enough to stand out beneath the collar of the shirt without causing any sort of battle for attention or space.015 008

Fall Aesthetic

I recently haven’t been too pleased with the weather, as it is mid-October, yet the temperature was still in the 80s. Luckily, mother nature came through for me and it rained and everything cooled off and I was finally able to break out a warm cardigan! While this isn’t my favorite fall look, I do still appreciate the overall vibe of it, especially with that “touch of edge” from my new ankle booties from Charlotte Russe that I have been wearing non-stop. And now, let the weather appropriate fall looks begin!020 019

To the Theatre

I rarely ever have reason to create nighttime outfits, but if you follow me on instagram then you know that last night was a very special occasion. I went to go see The Phantom of the Opera last night with some friends and it both reaffirmed my awe of people who can sing opera and set designers. I decided to go for a fall influenced look with the brown, black, and deep purple color palate, spiced up with the dramatic sleeve of the top and I am all around quite pleased with the way it turned out. I can’t wait to get further into fall so I can play around with even more looks!010 004

Sky Blue Saturdays

Hello everybody! Sorry for the little (or, I suppose, long) hiatus I took as I realized just how much I hate mosquitoes and spent time adjusting to doing this ‘school thing’ again. Luckily, I’m back and apparently doing speech competitions which means I get to show all of my new fancy business wear, which is basically just me trying to look different while wearing the same skirt over and over again. I was feeling pretty snazzy during my Saturday competition and decided to go for a bow tie, that somehow turned out to be a crowd favorite. Forensics kids really seem to like neckwear and I am definitely not one to go against that trend.100_2090 100_2094
