Casual Metallics

IMG_9556 Metallics are having a moment right now...and a casual one at that. I decided to dress down my metallic UO tee that I typically pull out for holiday parties, and paired it with a blazer for a day spent working in studio. In order to rough up the look even more, I went with a ripped jean and a slouchy beanie to top it off. Instead of reaching for my favorite neon one, today I went with an earth tone to really let the top stand out and give on an easy-going vibe.

Messy Hair Don't Care

IMG_9439 Although I cut them weeks ago, I'm finally embracing my bangs. I'm not sure if its because my days are getting busier and they are easier to style, or because I'm obsessed with this blogger babe lately, but I am loving the new look. This morning, I decided to embrace messy hair and roll out bed and into the city. To take my bedhead chic vibe one step further, I threw my fluffy jacket over the band tee I had slept in and was good to go. Laziness for the win!

I didn't bring back many fashion-related finds from Amsterdam, but I did pick up this cube ring at the Waterlooplein Flea Market. I have always wanted a ring like this so when I spotted one for a good price I decided to snag it! Since I am always working with my hands, I've just given up on bracelets because they are always in the way. Rings are my new love for this reason!

P.S. If you are ever in Amsterdam check out that flea market I mentioned. It is always there and haggling is commonplace as well, which is always fun. Thanks for reading today!

OOTD_100 "Restart"

DSC_1246 Since today is my 100th outfit post (eek!) I wanted to be sure to wear some special pieces. I am completely obsessed with these leather UNIF pants, and even more obsessed with the price. I picked them up a month ago on eBay for $17. Basically unheard of considering their normal retail price. Today I am rocking them with this awesome muscle tee and am accessorizing with black, what else?

Because today is a special post, I was sure to feature one of my favorite bands, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! Today's outfit track is their newly released song "Restart" that came out yesterday. Listen to it here while you view!

Now that I've hit the big 100, I think from here on out I will stick to outfit titles with just song names for a cleaner look without numbers. A little "restart" if you will ;)

HOW I STYLE_Vests for Spring + Video!

I filmed this video with my iPhone over the past couple of weeks because I have noticed how much vests are becoming a staple of my spring wardrobe. I love how they add a layer to your outfit, without making you too warm. Check out the video and I have also included photos with outfit details below if you are curious!
