"And Justice For All"

IMG_0729 If you watched the haul video I posted yesterday, you'll recognize this pretty dress from H&M that I picked up in Chicago over the weekend. I couldn't wait to style it so I decided to go for a dressy look at school today and wear it right away. As I mentioned in the video, my friend bought the same dress because we both loved it so much, and since great minds think alike, we coincidentally both wore it today to class! We were the butt of our friends jokes for the day, but it was pretty funny so we didn't mind haha.

Anyway, I styled this to edge up the very girly dress with some camo and my creepers. I chose this cardigan over a camo jacket, because I felt that this camoflauge pattern is a little toned down and set off the dress better than a brighter green pattern would.

The track for today's outfit post is "And Justice for All" by Metallica just because I had been listening to it while editing a video and got it stuck in my head. Listen along below while you view!

I hope you enjoyed this outfit post--especially since it's my first one in about a week! Also, sorry about the low quality of the photos. I was silly today and accidentally had my camera on the wrong setting. Better quality for tomorrow's outfit, promise!

OOTD_90: "Tough And Girly"

DSC_0932 Today's #coasttocoastchallenge was "Tough and Girly." Since a feminine yet edgy look is basically my every day style, I decided to go all out by contrasting some of my most edgy pieces with this very girly floral dress.

A big part of the making this outfit "tough" is the fit of this vest. The oversized piece really tones down the flowy dress to make it a little more casual. I also wouldn't normally pair two studded pieces together, but I really like how all of the silver accents are picking up in this look.

OOTD_72 "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

DSC_0529 Let's get right to the point, as you can tell, I dyed my hair last night! I was planning on going more in the direction of dark brown, but I saw the auburn on the box and decided to go for it. I really like how it looks. Also, I'm not big into the whole permanent dye thing, so I used Clairol Natural Instincts, and can change it in a month or so--or keep it if I like it!

The new hair inspired me to just go all out grunge today from the classic 90's flannel-tied-around-waist look and even a choker necklace. If you want to try a grunge look, take it one step further with a pair of Doc Martens. I would have thrown mine on, but its pretty warm here today (finally!) so I stuck with my favorite combat boots instead.

In pure 90's fashion, the track for today's outfit is "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana. Listen along below while you view!

DSC_1223 After making this skull tee last night, I needed to wear it right away. Today Jake and I were headed to Trader Joe's so we could make lunch and also worked on some upcoming DIY projects for the holiDIY series! Tonight we're headed to the record store, so I was sure to bring a warm jacket. I picked this denim one up from Goodwill yesterday while I was shopping for tees and fabric for projects. I like the throwback vibe of this outfit and completed it with some old patterned Keds to tie the whole look together.
