Monochromatic

“Playing dress-up begins at age five and never truly ends.”-Kate Spade

To fancy things up a bit I went for a monochromatic look. While I chose white, any monochromatic outfit you wear will look chic and cool.

This look consists of a white shirt with flared sleeves, a white midi skirt, and white boots. The entire outfit is from Zara, except for the plaid coat and purse. This purse is definitely a staple in my closet as well as the red lipstick.

The outfit may not keep you very warm, but you’ll still look good. Or you could be practical and wear pants like I should have.

Here’s to the weekend!

Sweater Weather in Brooklyn

When winter comes along, it’s easy to stick to sweaters and jeans all season long. However, if you’re like me and get bored with wearing just a sweater, here’s a way in which I try to change up my winter uniform.

Thrifting has become a new love of mine and the thrift stores in Brooklyn are amazing! Awhile ago I found this women’s blazer and fell in love with it! I’m a sucker for menswear on women and so I paired this blazer with my favorite sweater from Olive Clothing. 

I also added a red lip, my favorite mom jeans, and everyday shoes. The converse make the outfit more casual and help out with walking throughout the city. Practical shoes that won’t make your feet sore are a must. I learned the hard way when I first moved here. Let’s just say, ALOT of blisters.

Lastly, I accessorized my outfit with a Kate Spade watch and Coach purse, which I also found at a thrift store! I don’t wear a lot of jewelry, but I do love watches. They’re simple and timeless! Except not, because they tell time and stuff…haha.

Thrifted Overalls

As you may or may not know, I am obsessed with denim. So when I found these overalls at Broad Ripple Vintage, I was in love! My 11 year old sister looked disgusted when I first showed her the overalls and called them “mom jeans.”

The front part is a skirt and the back part has shorts. I paired them with a grey tank top, a bralette, choker, and my old fake keds. It’s fun to not always be on trend but then again chokers and denim are on trend. Oh well. Explore different options other than your normal pair of skinny jeans when shopping for denim. Get creative and always be yourself.

Summer Midi Dress

Over the summer, midi dresses have started to come back into style. I was so excited when I saw that stores were carrying them and that they looked good! This particular dress that I am wearing is from Urban Outfitters. I have a love/hate relationship with that store. Their dresses are usually way too short for me and so when I saw their midi dresses, I bought a couple.

This dress actually functions as a romper as well. The skirt is see through but there are white shorts underneath. I do get nervous about spilling something on this dress because it is white and I spill things…alot.

I also wore a sun hat from Free People. I’m completely obsessed with hats and wish people wore them more or didn’t give weird looks when I where one. I especially love wearing them in the summer time!

Wear a hat and have some fun in the sun (:

Valentines Day

As you already know, Valentines Day is around the corner which also means Walking Dead comes back on, yay!

Anyways, this year I went with a red splattered dress from Anthropologie and red flats. The dress is fun and has a lot of movement and will fit any shape. Along with the dress I went with minimal jewelry and slightly curled hair. Even if you don’t have a special someone, dress up and have fun with your family and friends!

Happy Valentines Day and may it be filled with love (:  Also, Happy Galentines Day!
