Baby Blues

Blues the hue! My favorite color took over the runways this year (think: Emilio Pucci, Alexander McQueen, Chloe) so you can expect to see even more blue in my daily attire. I went for head to toe blues for today’s post, and I think I’m in love.

First off, I tried out the cropped flare. I must confess, I was a bit nervous to try out these pants… but once I got them on, I never wanted to take them off! You guys know I have a thing for culottes, so the flared denim crop is a natural extension of that trend.¬†

I adore the way blues and reds look together – maybe that’s why I dyed my hair red (hah.) In fact, the last time I wore this baby blue jacket, I paired it with

Vintage Blazer + Scarf

red 4

Ah, my love for vintage grows stronger by the day! I snagged this red, militant jacket from my mom years ago, but I’ve only worn it once. It has a very ’80s sensibility with padded shoulders and a boxy fix, but the attributes I like most about this piece of outerwear are the gold buttons and the streamlined collar. The first time I wore this blazer, I dressed it up with a black turtleneck and trousers, but I’m kinda loving it wiht a more dressed down look.

As you probably know, I haven’t taken these creepers off since I bought them ūüôā And I like the juxtaposition here with the ladylike blouse and scarf with the heavy black rubber shoes. read more

Feeling European

Do you ever wake up and just feel like transporting yourself to Europe? That’s me just about every day, and some days I like to channel my #wanderlust with my wardrobe.¬†

As you guys know, neck scarves have become a staple of mine. I feel like I’m not fully dressed without them and I love exploring all of the different ways you can incorporate them into a look. For this outfit, I was actually inspired by a scarf style I saw on Danielle Snyder from the jewelry brand Dannijo. On her Instagram, I saw her double wrap a scarf around her neck and then tie it with a cute little knot – so, I did the same thing! read more

Ladylike Quirk

quirk 4

The Gucci Spring 2016 runway has to be one of my favorite fashion shows of all time. It reminded me of why I personally fell in love with fashion, and inspired me to re-explore the depths of my own personal style.

These days with the internet and instagram and endless means of inspiration, I actually found myself lacking creativity when it came to getting dressed, because I became so heavily influenced from others around me. With the upsurge of athleisure, minimalism, and normcore, I found myself dulling down my attire with hopes of achieving a seamless Instagram feed comprised of the perfect balance of white, gray, black and cactus. To be frank, that just isn’t me. What I love about fashion is the story behind things. I’ve always been the first to grab my mom’s vintage clothing, and could spend a day thrifting at the Rose Bowl. And it goes beyond clothing – ¬†I love reading memoirs and semi-biographical fiction stories about people like Coco Chanel and Kurt Cobain, and learning more about other people’s stories. Things that have character and a story have always spoken louder to me. read more

Denim + Denim + Denim = …

So… I went for it! This is my (hopefully chic) take on Britney and Justin circa the 2001 American Music Awards, only – less embarrassing and more wearable. I’ve never worn 3 pieces of denim together and I figured I’d test it out. (Note: I originally had on a black leather moto on, but then was like f**k it I’m wearing the denim jacket too.)

The most important thing when you’re mixing denims is the color story. All the different pieces need to flow together. The jacket and jeans are in similar washes, creating a modern Canadian tuxedo if you will, and the darker chambray provides a subtle amount of contrast. I don’t typically¬†like super jarring denim combos, a small color change is just enough to add intrigue. read more
