OOTD_80: "Breaking & Entering"

DSC_0586 i recently put my christmas money to use, and decided to style all 3 of my purchases into one outfit! i was in a black and white mood and picked up this colorblocked moto jacket (for 25 bucks!) from the Nasty Gal sale, and paired it with my new Vans Sk8 Hi's. i'd been eyeing these shoes for a few months and knew they'd be a great addition to my Vans collection. i almost opted for the platform version, but decided to get a pair that i could also skate in. i love how they add a classic skate style to my looks and are a little more dramatic than ones i've purchased in the past

with an all black and white look, i love the pop of color that my new ear cuff adds to my look. i am crushing hard on everything that is sold on By Samii Ryan and love the element of interest mine adds to my look!

the styling for this outfit kinda reminds me of Jenna McDougall of Tonight Alive. therefore, the track for today's outfit is "Breaking & Entering" by the band. if you don't know about them, listen below!

OOTD 73_"The Future Freaks Me Out"

DSC_0409 I picked up these red (pink?) shoes at Target yesterday for only 10 bucks! I knew I had a blazer in my closet that matched perfectly, but honestly didn't plan on wearing them together. However, when I came home and tried them on, I decided they would look great together for a graphic look. Adding this printed blouse was the perfect way to make this outfit bold. I finished with clear jewelry that wouldn't compete with the loud colors and prints.

The track for today's outfit is "The Future Freaks Me Out" by Motion City Soundtrack in honor of the announcement that they'll be on Warped Tour this summer. So. Excited. Listen along below while you view!

This outfit would look great with a plain white blouse as well, and would be a good way to pair all of your basics together for one great outfit!

OOTD_40

Today I chose an outfit that transitioned from breakfast with my dad, to school, and for a furniture competition I'm headed out to right now that I participated in!

I made this necklace from laser cut plexiglass. I actually made about 105 chains like this for a chandelier that I constructed for the furniture competition I mentioned before. It is completely student work, and I'm so excited to see all of the projects tonight! I'll also post about the chandelier as soon as I get a chance to take some nice photos of it.

I thought that my DIY vinyl and faux leather clutch complemented the necklace well. I'll be posting that tutorial soon!
