Flashback to Fall

Going through my archives for my post on my 1 year blogaversary, I realized that since I have documented my outfits for over a year, I have the opportunity to take a look back and revisit what I was wearing in 2012. Fall is here, and since my style is always evolving it is fun to see outfits past. Doing this, I noticed that the only neutral that I ever really worked with was black. This fall, I am trying to work with more neutrals like oxblood, grey, and olive green. This post also kind of really made me miss my larger wardrobe at home that I had to leave behind...but that's a story for another day! dsc_1151

Edgy Aztec

Hit up your local Goodwill and dig up a gem like this colorful aztec number. Aztec prints are still in this season as far as I'm concerned, and even if they weren't, who cares?! If you want to freshen it up a bit, add some studded flair in this tutorial.

Cozy Textures: Velvet

Now that the colder months are here, you can trade out your cotton pieces with more interesting textures like velvet. This vintage LBD is a personal favorite of mine because it's so versatile. I like to transform it with a grungy print like camo, and adding a beanie takes it to the next level of casual cool.

Studio Stripes

I pulled out that beanie again, this time for a look that I would thrown on for a day spent at school in studio. To prevent the striped sweater from being a bit too basic, layer on a couple of necklaces for some added interest. A statement shoe like Doc Martens always helps in that department too!

Bold Statement Skulls

Pull out your favorite breezy summer blouse and pair it with some dark skinnies. Add a bold lip and accessory, and you're good to go! I also am [again] sporting that same favorite beanie because I never like looking too dressy. P.S. I promise I have added a few more beanies to my collection to rock this fall...!

Band Tee Babe

It wouldn't be a throwback post on this blog if we didn't include a band tee look! For this outfit, I transformed a basic match up of black tee/black pants to a new level with leather, spiked accessories, and a killer shoe. Fall is a great time to put those heels to use before it gets too slippery and snowy outside!

I hope that these looks gave you some inspiration to start styling yourself into fall! It may seem tricky to start pulling out those cold-weather pieces after a hot summer, but ease into it with some statement prints + textures!

Which was your favorite look? #1 #2 #3 #4 or #5? Let me know! xx. Paige

P.S. Hi from Switzerland! I am still on my study tour but had to get this post out to you guys so I'm not away for too long. Hope you are having a great week!

OOTD_94 + Polyvore!

DSC_1081 I am always really inspired by London fashion, and I learn about a lot of it from Youtubers. I think this would be similar to their typical "uni" outfit, which is where I wore this today. As always, my Docs are also great for rainy days. And finally I thought that the blue beanie was a good pop of color to brighten up a neutral toned outfit.

Last night I took a break from my studio work and played around with my Polyvore a bit because I hadn't in a while. I styled some outfits with the "Big Lita" by Jeffrey Campbell, my dream shoe at the moment. You can check out the outfits here!

OOTD_82: "Art Show"

DSC_0660 today was chilly and rainy so i layered up with my favorite leather jacket/hoodie combo. since i wore an oversized tee, i added a feminine touch with my silver toms. this is a pretty staple look for me, and although its casual, its very true to my personal style.

about the deck i'm holding, this was the most recent skateboard painting i was working on, and i actually made the deck myself in a class at school as well. i had the deck around this morning because i was walking it down to my local skate shop for an art show i was in for this board! i was able to bring this coffin deck as well, to showcase my other art. it was a really fun show, and it was awesome to see all of the other work. i included some images of the show below!

OOTD 76_"Let Your Love Grow Tall"

DSC_0738 The best thing about Dr. Martens? They double as rain boots. Today was drizzly so I threw mine on over my cathedral leggings. I was excited to style these casually, in contrast to this outfit. Although it's typical to pair crazy pants with black pieces, I wanted to keep the outfit subdued. To add interest, I used layers with sheer and leather details. I topped off the look with my trusty BDG beanie, which is not only stylish, but hides my hair on a messy day when I'm late to class.

The track for today's outfit post is "Let Your Love Grow Tall" by Passion Pit. Listen along below while you view!
